Historical Traveler Reviews Roe Park Resort Limavady
Good, but still mess and wedding chaos!!
Despite having a separate wedding suite entrance, the Foyer is used wedding reception drinks. this means from about 3pm onwards, the centre of the Hotel is mobbed. You feel out of place wandering through the wedding guests and certainly can't lounge about. The function suite has a seprate entrance and some better planning could ensure this was all better segregated. The real problem with the weddings is the noise of guests coming to bed. Last night, the couple opposite us had a blazing, door-slammin, screamin, hollering row that played out in several installments from midnight throyugh till 3am!! This is not necessarily the hotel's problem, but given the high volume of reviews comenting on the wedding, you may want to think carefully, if a good nights sleep is an essential or you have small children.
I totally agree with the comments about room service trays, bottles etc. these are placed here by housekeeping, but no restuarant staff remove them. trays were there from when I arrived (2pm) to the next morning. It just looks like bad management and not everyone in the team being accountable.
Postives: Good pool, two excellent restaurants, ood acces to the coutry park, impressive setting, modern, well equiped rooms.
Excellent Hotel, but Weddings can take the place over
I decided to book the Radisson for a romantic break for our Wedding Anniversary, most hotels we stay at we are hardly there, so for a change I picked a hotel where there was lots of things to do.
Arrived at 14:00, but were told room wouldn't be ready until 15:00, but we were offered use of the Spa until then. We declined and had lunch at the Coach House which is basically the Club House for the Golf Course, food was fine but the waitresses seemed a little run off their feet.
Once we picked up the key, was a bit surprised to see loads of dirty cutlery, plates and bottles in the corridor, would have expected it to have been cleared by then. Room was clean, nice and bright, bed was large by UK standards. Unpacked our swimming costumes and spent a very relaxing few hours in the Spa, in especially the hot tub.
Dinner was at Green's restaurant, which is more formal than the Coach House, excellent food and service at reasonable price, can't fault it at all. A nice touch I thought was that even though it was the more formal of the two restaurants, if kids were there they were provided with crayons and paper to keep them amused.
We then went to have a quiet drink in the bar, but there was a wedding on and the place was packed and noisy as the bar and reception area is quiet small. This might be a problem for some people, but we sat upstairs in a balcony and people watched for a few hours so it was OK.
Next morning was spent walking in the Roe Valley Country Park to work off the hangovers and the big buffet all you can eat breakfast. All in all an excellent stay, but if you like a quiet drink, avoid days when they're having weddings.
A lovely hotel..but
Just got back from a three day trip at Roe Park. My wife and 11 month old son decided to get a quick break away . Usually my wife and I would head to Fermanagh for such a break , but we thought we would try this hotel. This was our visit hotel holiday with our son so a new experiance for us all. Roe Park hotel is an impressive building set in attractive surroundings. The reception is spacious and check in very good.
We got a first floor room overlooking a rear court yard , so the views were not outstanding , though many rooms do have a view over the golf course. There are two restaurants to dine at (Greens & Brasserie) , food at both is very good , though Greens is more expensive and more formal. The brasserie is more casual and food is good. The staff throughout the hotel are friendly and those not familar with the local accent , will love it. On each day we felt has if we were part of the wedding party (3 weddings during our stay) the wedding guests take over the hotel and bar , so no where for us to enjoy a quiet drink after diner. My main concern is no baby montoring facility , disappointing for a four star hotel , we took turns in returning to our room to check our son , we didn't want to have our sleeping baby in the restaurant with us (roll on smoking ban). More of a concern , when we dined in the brasserie as this is in the rear court yard.
Enjoyed our stay , but sorry to say we will not be rushing back. We shall return to Fermanagh (Manor House) for our next short break.
Just loved it!
My husband and I have just returned from the Radisson Roe Park in Limavady. We stayed Friday - Sunday, our reason for going was just to chill out, relax and unwind for a few days. It was everything we wanted.
We had booked a standard room, no mini bar tho for those who can afford to avail of one (we don't see the sense in paying the prices!) our room overlooked part of the golf course, it was spacious and comfortable. We ate in the Coach House both nights and the food was above average, staff very gracious and attentive especially Danielle. There was a wedding but this did not deter from our enjoyment. The entertainer a singer in O'Cahan's Bar was brilliant and whilst in the lounge bar it was rather loud for us we were able to sit with our drinks in the big comfy sofas in reception and still enjoy the excellent entertainment. We just enjoyed the food, read the papers, went shopping in Londonderry, went for walks in the Roe Valley Park, people watched in reception and enjoyed the ambience of this beautiful place. I feel this is an excellent hotel both for couples and families to do whatever you want to, be it relax, play golf, use the full leisure facilities whatever! I am sure you will find it here.
My wife took me to the new years eve bash as a christmas gift. We had been before, a few times,but this was the BEST ever. Even being fully booked, the staff still had time for smile and a cheery word. The food,always great, was fantastic. We made new friends and have decided we are going again for new years eve 2005. But we will be there a few times between now and then as well. In short, great place, great people, great food
Just ok - could be better
This is my Third time back to Roe Park,and to be honest will be the last.
Our room was just ok and no way reflects a 4* property, it seems a bit of a lottery staying here. First time room and staff were excellent - second time we opted for a suite, which was just average but this time the room was very basic and old fashioned, I wish there was a corporate identity here with all standard rooms being decorated the same.
I'd also advise that it seems to be very 'family oriantated' and there were a lot of kids running about all the time.
Food in Coach House was. and always has been just ok and service levels throughout are a mixed bag from very helpful to downright rude.
Nice enough place more of a 3* standard but if you want to go out the front door and explore the town you need to call a taxi - it's very remote!
One other thing I should mention is that it doesn't seem to welcome
same sex couples as it was frowned upon that my partner & I booked a double room...surely in 2005 attitudes should be changing.
Cracking Hotel in lovely grounds
Stayed here during July 2004 and found it to be a lovely hotel. Being a golf complex means the grounds are lovely and it is well hidden away from the main road.
The food in the main resturant was superb and the service matched it.
The whole place leant itself to relaxing after a hard days work.
The only downside is the fact that there is no high speed internet connection in the rooms (they did mention it was being cabled while I stayed). This is not a major problem as I like being away from my business emails.
Great Food, great rooms, all in all a super place to stay. I will definately go again only this time I'll leave the kids behind. aaaahhhhh I can imagine it now, even more relaxing.
Perfect for a 'Chill-Out' Weekend
My husband and I booked into this beautiful hotel earlier this year for a simple, relaxing break. This we certainly had and all our expectations were exceeded. I had pre-booked a beauty treatment - that was very relaxing. The room was very nice and spacious - ice machine just down the hall which was perfect and tea/coffee making facilities in the room. We met friends on the Friday evening and ordered a taxi from reception - this was done efficiently and without any fuss. The leisure complex (although full of good intentions) we didn't get round to using, but definitely will, the next time. The food, both in the bar and in the restaurant was top class. All in all, we came home totally relaxed, well walked, well fed and very content. I am booking for another late summer break as soon as possible.
I have been to this hotel on several occasions and I have found the staff very friendly and willing to help. I would especially recommend paying the extra and upgrading to a suite (ask for a suite in the new wing) as they are lovely for very little extra money. The food is also excellent. The only downside for some would be that it is very popular for weddings. Also, if you are looking for an exciting night out then this location is not for you! However, if you want a relaxing environment, long walks or want to play golf then you will really enjoy this hotel.

Based on what I read (and now confirmed by my visit), I didn't expect Londonderry to be a major draw for visitors. However, the city is described as the only one in Ireland to be surrounded by an intact medieval town wall, and with a cathedral and some other notable buildings, as well as recent history from "The Troubles" it seemed like an interesting enough place to book a night. And the city is also quite conveniently located for a stay based on ...
... sun. I ended up sitting down for a good 15 minutes just sitting on the rocks and watching the sun and taking in the views of the ocean. After waking around some more down to the main car park, I sat and watched the sun fully set before returning back to the hostel to pack up and get ready for Caroline's arrival the next morning to pick me up to head to the Causeway. I can't imagine how much more beautiful it can truly be compared to what I've already seen! I cannot ...
... is very friendly. It was a little loud, as our room was overlooking an alleyway, which is also the smoking area. That is my only complaint.
We visited the Roe Valley County Park, just South-West of the town. We picked the wrong day to go, it rained, but it was a lovely walk, and good visitor centre, helpful staff and little pathways down by the river, we were lucky and spotted a crane! There is several ...
... two hours of scenic cruising we arrived at our first major stop: the Carrick-a-Rede Bridge. For my readers who happen to be fellow Game of Thrones fans, you will probably recognize quite a few of my pictures from today's post. A large part of Game of Thrones was filmed in Northern Ireland, and the Carrick-a-Rede bridge was used for part of the Iron Islands. The bridge is an old rope bridge that connects a small salmon fishing island to the mainland. From where the ...
... and it was getting quite dark, and eventually we had to call it a day and turn around before it got pitch black in there! We wandered back the 45 minutes or so we had walked in, and made our way back up to the hotel, where we went inside again for a hot cup of tea. When we had warmed up again, we headed back out into the night and made our way back out of the park and into town again. We made our way down the main street of the small town and found the bus station. We'd missed the ...
