We arrived on Friday 12th June for two night stay. Check- in is supposed to be 2pm and we arrived at 3pm to be informed that our room was not yet ready. We got our keys at 4pm! After a long travel you just want to gain entry to your room. Next morning I thought the fire alarm had been...

Nothing special here - a clean room before an early start. What did surprise us was the fact that Carrickfergus is a bigger place than we thought - we could have used an hour or two to explore the Fort and town. Our room was spacious and had all the basics you would expect from a chain hotel. The restaurant...

Good clean place, breakfast ok, restaurant more a kids gathering, but family orientated. Small local bar. Ok for somewhere to lay your head whilst visiting else where. Close to carrickfergus castle, on the sea front only 30mins away from Belfast.

I have stayed at this premier inn a lot over the years but this time I was disappointed at the obvious plumbing problem they are having in the rooms, we were awaken very early both days by what at first sounds like an alarm type noise but is actually the water coming through the showers, the noise is extremely loud...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stunning coastline, gorgeous countryside and a thriving, historic town... there's loads to see and do at the Premier Inn Hotel Carrickfergus. In fact with so much to do within a mile of the front door - plus popular business destinations only slightly further away - your first visit is unlikely to be your last. Step back in time at Carrickfergus Castle and Museum, before stepping out to its Marina and smartly refurbished Amphitheatre leisure centre. And, if it's the right time of year, follow the steps at the Annual Irish Dancing Championships. Either way, kick back at our tasty Brewers Fayre restaurant before diving into your incredibly comfy bed. Important info This hotel is situated next to a main road. Bedrooms are insulated to minimise noise. Directions: M2(J2) out of Belfast City, follow M5 North onto A2 towards Carrickfergus along coast road. Follow signs to the Castle/Maritime Area. Turn right at roundabout adjacent to the castle. Hotel situated straight ahead, 9.5 miles from Belfast. Next to the Harbour Brewers Fayre.
