Brilliant hotel for a wedding. The hotel is beautiful, the food was excellent and the staff could not have been more attentive and helpful. Special thanks to Paula and James for ensuring everything went smoothly in the lead up to the day and for really taking care of us on the day as well. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them.

Wonderful Hotel
I stayed here whilst on a charity cycle. The hotel had donated rooms and meals for some of the cyclist and crew. Everything about this hotel was wonderful, from the time we entered until we left the staff made sure we were 100% happy. The facilities, rooms,restaurant and bar were all magnificent.
I will return
Darrell H Tripadvisor Review July 2018
We had our wedding here on Fri 27th July 2018 and it was the most wonderful day. From the very first time we went to view the hotel the hospitality from the staff was excellent, especially Paula. We fell in love with the hotel,it was by far the nicest venue we had looked at. In the run up to our special day the reception staff were more than helpful anytime we rang. All our guests commended the food on the day and the service from all staff, as well as commenting how lovely the rooms were. The leisure facilities are excellent and all our guests enjoyed the pool the next morning, especially the children. Paul and I would like to thank Paula, James and Roberta, who was master of ceremonies on the day, for all they done for us to make sure our day was special. It was perfect from start to finish. We would highly recommend the Glenavon for any occasion as it’s a beautiful hotel and all the staff go above and beyond their duties to ensure that you enjoy your stay. Thanks once again for having us and making our day so special, we look forward to staying again in the future xxx
Ramona Doherty Facebook Review July 2018
Spacious, excellent hospitality and quality
Stayed at this hotel with three other business colleagues on 23rd July for one night. I must say the quality of this hotel is impressive, every where is spacious, rooms nicely furnished, comfortable, has excellent amenities and the staff really pleasant and helpful. Also had an evening meal on arrival and the food was good, just what we needed after a delayed flight.
I have made a note of this hotel as I hope to go again, not for business but for a personal chill out few days. I’m sure I will not be disappointed.
Lee M Trip Advisor Review July 2018
We had our daughter’s christening party in Bistro Vino today, and I have to say the hospitality we received was second to none. The staff were amazing, and the food was lovely. I would highly recommend the Glenavon for special occasion parties. Thank you very much.

Favourite hotel
This is my favourite hotel that I use in Northern Ireland, it’s nicely tucked away just outside of the town centre. It’s always quite and clean, I really like the rooms, plenty of space in them with a proper sized TV. The restaurant is good with excellent food, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good compared to most other hotels.
deangermouse Tripadvisor Review June 2018
Fantastic Hotel
We recently spent 2 nights staying at this hotel at the end of May and we were very impressed. We had a family room which was huge, meaning that for once in a hotel the 4 is us weren’t tripping over each other and our luggage.
The bathroom was also a really good size and, like the bedroom, was spotlessly clean.
The was a wide selection of food to choose from at breakfast and it was great to see some traditional Irish touches, like potato bread and soda farls, that you don’t tend to get in the chain hotels.
On one evening we ate with extended family members in The Cellar where the food was excellent. As someone who has Coeliac disease it was great to be given a proper printed gluten free menu with a wide selection of choices. I can safely say it was one of the best Gluten Free menus I have had in 15+ years, to the point where I struggled to choose! All of the staff we came into contact with during our stay, whether it was receptionists, waiting staff or cleaners were all really friendly and could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
We have stayed in lots of hotels but this was the first time all of us were sad to leave. We are very much looking forward to our next stay!
Devon wanderers Tripadvisor Review June 2018
We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights and the first and last impression was friendly staff, who were so well trained, from receptionists to waiters/waitresses and bar staff. All were prepared to go the extra mile to make us feel welcome and well looked after.
The Cellar restaurant has been recently designed and the work of the designer makes a place where a nice relaxing meal can be had while enjoying beautiful surroundings.
The selected furniture, lighting, flooring, etc bring together a sense of wellbeing and comfort. I would highly recommend this hotel.
PhilDub2013 Tripadvisor Review June 2018

We recently visited the Glenavon Hotel for a family celebration and on arrival we were greeted by two very friendly receptionists. In the beautifully decorated Cellar Lounge a young and very pleasant bar man, I think his name was Michael, very efficiently took our drinks order. A very appealing Gin menu was available and a few of our group were tempted into having one.. or two!

Our waiter on the night was Anthony, who explained the menu choices and special fish option available. He showed great knowledge of the menu and recommended a few dishes. The order was promptly taken and later we were taken to our table and our drinks carried down for us.

A few of us had the Chilli Chicken to start which was very pleasing on the pallet, something I will definitely order again. Another member of my party had the Garlic Bread topped with Bacon and Cheese, this was plentiful and tasty.
Steak, Chicken and fish seemed to be the popular choice of main course with our party, everyone’s food was delicious and the steaks were perfectly cooked. Our desserts were beautifully presented and tasted even better. A huge complement to the chef and his team.

With the entertainment in the lounge and the great atmosphere in the restaurant as a whole, we thought it would be rude not to stay for another few drinks… although it took little to tempt us.

Massive thanks to the staff, especially Anthony, who’s attention was exceptional and an asset to the hotel, and as always Michelles warming manner and friendly,joking nature can put a smile on anyones face.. we will definitely be back.

What can I say about this fantastic hotel, 5 stars simply aren’t enough! We held our wedding reception here on 12th May 2018 and couldn’t have asked for a more relaxed and special day. A massive thank you to Paula and James who couldn’t have done more for us during the booking, run-up and the day itself. The effort and kindness showed by all staff was second to none and our guests were blown away by the excellent food, drink, hospitality and rooms. Every single one of us was made to feel like a VIP and we have had so much lovely feedback from guests. Highly recommend any engaged couples to have a look – you will have such a stress-free, seamless and enjoyable day. Thank you, Niamh and Ethan Hesketh xxx

Thank you so much for last Thursday night, University of Ulster Student Union Awards Dinner and Dance. I think I can speak on behalf of all attendees that it was exactly what we were aiming to achieve as the “PARTY OF THE YEAR!!”

Can you also extend our thanks to all staff members of the Glenavon who were involved with helping us deliver such a smooth and successful event on Thursday. The standard of service and attention we all received was spectacular, it definitely helped Karen and I to relax that little bit knowing we had the support there.


Catherine Quinn University of Ulster Email Review April 2018
We recently stayed as group of 24 for a management conference and the hotel was excellent. Staff were friendly and welcoming, everything was organised as requested. Reception staff were brilliant at ensuring check in was smooth and that everything ran according to schedule. The lunch and dinner were both excellent quality & service was efficient & friendly at all times.
mdminx21 Belfast Trip Advisor Review April 2018
I booked a private room at the weekend to celebrate our daughters first holy communion. The staff couldn’t have been more welcoming to ourselves and made our daughter feel extra special with the added attention she received. The booking was seamless and the room was set up just as requested. The food itself was gorgeous as always, there was more than enough and everyone left thoroughly satisfied. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Thank you to James and Fiona for helping with the arrangements and to Roz in reception for such a warm welcome on arrival.

Had a fantastic break at Glenavon House Hotel during mid-term. The new Cellar Bar was buzzing with live music each night – food was phenomenal from breakfast to dinner and service was excellent from check in to the staff in the bar and restaurant. A wee gem of a place to stay, eat, drink and explore the surrounding area. Special shout out to Jungle NI – great spot for a day trip
Paddy Murney Facebook Review February 2018
We have stayed The Glenavon several times now, with and without the kids and it never disappoints. There is always a friendly welcome from the staff and a lovely atmosphere in the downstairs bar, which has recently undergone a beautiful refurbishment (love the Cocktail garnish wall!). Family rooms are extremely spacious and there is always lots of great storage. Rooms are spotless and comfortable. The kids (6 & 7) have always had a ball and love the pool which is very family friendly. A visit to Jungle NI was also excellent!
Jude Malone Facebook Review February 2018
I had an overnight stay here last Saturday night. We arrived at 2pm and could check in straight away as the room hadn’t been used the night before. The room was overlooking the river and was bright and airy. The bathroom was lovely and spacious with a shower head plus a drencher head aswell.
We dropped off our bags and a headed to the pool. Towels were provided and lockers were £1 which you got back again. The pool was a good size with a small pool for kids and a hot tub that seats 6 with 2 heated loungers that are tiled mosaic. I loved these. Also, had sauna and steam room. We spend a good hour and half here just chilling out.
We booked dinner in the Cellar Restaurant for 7.30pm. Went down about 7.20pm and were asked to take a seat in the bar and were given menus. The bar man came down and took an order for drinks and shortly after that they took our dinner order. When the food was ready we were moved to restaurant to eat. The bar and restaurant are modern looks like it isn’t long renovated. The food was lovely and very reasonable.
From the moment, we checked in till we checked out the staff were amazing very friendly and nothing too much trouble.
I will return here again and have told my friends and family about it. I know it says it 3 star but I would give it 4 stars no problem.

Myself and my husband Paul Brady would just like to thank the Glenavon Cookstown for the wonderful service we received for our wedding on the 30/12/17. We met with Paula July 2016 when we were choosing a hotel, from that 1st visit we knew it was the place for us, it was the first and last hotel we seen we just loved it. From that day we have had nothing but positive experiences, including a lovely family stay in the summer. Nothing was ever a bother. As the wedding approached we dealt a bit more with James, like many of the staff James has been working here many years- which it testament to the great establish you have. Again everything was easy and stress free! Our wedding day was everything we could of wished for and more!! Couldn’t recommend you enough! Thank you and i wish you even more success in the future!!

We recently had our wedding reception at the Glenavon House Hotel, Cookstown, and everything was perfect. James Wylie handled the booking from start to finish and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Everything was “no problem”. He answered all our queries and responded to emails very promptly. All our requests were met and everything was perfect. We look forward to our anniversary meal and we want to take this opportunity to thank the Glenavon House Hotel for our excellent wedding reception. The meal was delicious by head chef, Patrick Mallon, and all the staff were very attentive to our guests. Everyone had a fantastic day. You can be guaranteed a stress free wedding, with friendly and helpful staff at the Glenavon. Thank you again James and all the team.

We had our parents 40 year wedding anniversary meal here yesterday evening as this is the hotel they were married in. There were 19 of us and the service and food were amazing. We got seated in the annex of the restaurant which was great with young children as they could move around without distrubing other diners. Everyone was served at the one time with excellent food. We had a great night thank you!

Perfect Wedding Venue
We had our wedding in the Glenavon on 28th October and couldn’t have picked a better venue. From first calling into the hotel to ask for information from Paula, to our first meeting with James, they couldn’t have been more professional or helpful; nothing was too big or too small. On the day everyone was very impressed with the food, service and rooms. Our reception was held in the Tyrone Suite and the room was stunning and has a great layout for a wedding, our own ideas were accommodated for and incorporated perfectly. On the day we couldn’t have been treated better, 1st class service. All in all we are so pleased we booked with the Glenavon and would advise any newly engaged couples to call in for a visit.

Tanya Preshur Facebook Review November 2017
This place is amazing! So happy to have had the opportunity to have my wedding at the Glenavon. Great packages to suit everyone and 5 star service from staff. Haven’t heard a bad word said from any of my wedding guests about the food or service, it’s all been compliments on how great the food was or how lovely the rooms were and how beautiful the hotel and spa is. We got 3 month free use of the spa before our wedding which was an added bonus. Getting trips up to the hotel to go and relax or enjoy at drink in the cellar bar was just delightful. The staff are so friendly and organised and James who managed our wedding and helped us plan up to the big day was great. He could do it with his eyes closed and still make a great job out of it. All I can say is thanks so much you really made this the best day of our life and anyone thinking of this hotel for their wedding or a nights stay or even just a meal out, go for it you definitely won’t be disappointed! We certainly were not, and we will be returning for our anniversary if we aren’t up before! Thanks again, a great hotel and spa 1st class! Xxx

We planned our wedding from Canada and I cannot explain how happy we were with the Glenavon. They were courteous, helpful and professional. We met the manager, James, 5 days before the wedding, having done the majority of ur planning through email. He helped us put together a fantastic day; the reception was beautiful and the food was lovely.

Ciara N Facebook Review September 2017
We were really fortunate to be able to book the hotel for our wedding in August. It had been a long time since I had visited the hotel, and I was so impressed with the stylish renovations it had undergone. More impressive was the amazing service from the receptionists, the bar and waiting staff, and our excellent wedding co-ordinator James. There was nothing he wasn’t happy to take care of, and he took a lot of stress out of the wedding planning for me, knowing it was in such capable hands. The day itself went perfectly; the food was delicious. the service was excellent, and everyone had an amazing night. The hotel only accommodates one wedding per day, and this made our occasion feel all the more special, despite being a small wedding. A large number of family and friends stayed in the hotel on the night of the wedding, and commented on the reasonable rates and excellent rooms and facilities. The best thing about the experience was how relaxed we were all made to feel. The staff at the Glenavon want their guests to enjoy themselves, and went out of their way to make sure we did! Thanks for everything!

Vegan Wedding Meal
I was very impressed by the 3 course meal I was served at my sister’s wedding. I was unsure what they would be able to serve me at a traditional wedding meal as I’m vegan. To my surprise they had already a vegetarian menu and with a couple of adaptions i was able to enjoy a lovely 3 course meal. I was served Starter – soup, Main – chickpea curry and Dessert – chocolate brownie with Berries

An evening comparable to the Savoy!
A party of six met to mark a friend’s moving to another region. As usual the food was delicious, but I felt I had to highlight the table service provided by a team of enthusiastic, friendly and caring young adults. They added to the atmosphere of The Cellar Restaurant. Despite the place being very busy on a Saturday night, yet it was as if each table was the only one there, such was the attention that was paid to the patrons who were enjoying first class cuisine
Jl52 Trip Advisor Review August 2017

Great visit to the Glenavon for a wedding last Saturday. Checked in on Friday evening and made a weekend out of the trip having dinner in the Cellar Restaurant on Friday evening. I tried the Fillet of Beef with Champ which was cooked to perfection and my wife ate from the seasonal menu, having a pasta dish which she said was first class.

The wedding was very good, everything seemed to run smoothly and could not fault the food. Leisure facilities are up there with the best hotels in the country! A large pool and a well equipped gym, both overlooking a picturesque river.

I look forward to returning to the hotel again soon for a weekend break.

Geoff F Trip Advisor Review July 2017
We recently had our wedding reception at the Glenavon House hotel. What a fantastic day it was too!
From the first time we went to view the hotel we very well looked after by Paula who always ensured we had everything we needed and was on hand to answer any questions. All members of staff we met were friendly and spoke to us as we passed them by in reception, the spa and on our way to and from our room.
The hotel itself is well maintained and is regularly revamped to keep it looking fresh and modern. There are plenty of facilities in the hotel itself, from bar to restaurant and excellent spa facilities. The food in the restaurant is very good having eaten in it a number of times and also has a good menu to cater for all. The spa is well maintained and consists of a large pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and heated loungers. Our bedroom was enormous! We were afforded the luxury of being able to spend two nights in it as part of our wedding package and wished we could have stayed for longer. It was warm but not too warm, clean and well equipped (including the jet bath!).
On the day of our wedding we were welcomed by James who took care of proceedings. James is excellent at ensuring everything runs to plan and ensured we had nothing to worry about on the day. His attention to detail and making sure all guests were happy was second to none and anything we asked of him, he didn’t hesitate to sort out for us. The room our meal was in is a beautiful room, well decorated, has a bar for those wishing to make use of it and easily accessible toilets. Outside we were able to have our professional pictures taken with no need to go to any other location. The opportunities for pictures around the hotel are many and our pictures have turned out great. From speaking to Paula it was clear to see that the appearance of the outside of the hotel was just as important to her as the inside and great care is taken in maintaining the grounds.
The day after our wedding we spent some time walking around Drum Manor grounds which is only about a 5 minute drive from the hotel. The park is lovely to walk around provided the weather is nice and a great way to spend a few hours away from the business of life.
All in all we honestly can’t find fault in this hotel and would recommend it highly to anyone thinking of staying or even having their wedding reception there!
Thanks again to Paula and James for helping ensure we had a wonderful wedding day.

AnneP Trip Advisor Review June 2017
Checked into hotel a little early but the staff were amazing and got us our rooms straight away. Very impressed with the beautiful lobby, first impressions were great. Staff were very friendly and helpful and answered all our questions with a smile. We were on a party package with dinner, cocktail making and entrance to club. Although Sense was closed when we were there, we were given entrance to Time instead. Everything ran seemlessly and like clockwork. The package was amazing value for money and I really can’t fault anything. Rooms were lovely, beautifully decorated and clean. We even had our own corridor so we could be noisy and not annoy other guests. This weekend exceeded our expectations. Thanks very much staff at the glenavon. We had a great time. Thanks to Peter the bar man.
Vgrimley Trip Advisor Review June 2017
We stayed at the hotel as a friend’s wedding was nearby, it’s quite a drive from Belfast Airport but you’ll find taxi’s outside of the airport happy to take you to the hotel.
Once we arrived we were really impressed, we managed to check in quickly and the hotel had everything you could want.
We managed to do a daytrip to Belfast (not the easiest without a car!!) but reception were really helpful with telling us bus and train times and prices. Tips for Belfast: the Titanic museum was fantastic and we went to the oldest pub in Belfast – the Crown Liquor Saloon and had lunch upstairs and a spot of shopping.
We ate quite a bit at the hotel; breakfast, lunch and dinner – all very reasonably priced and tasty.
I also had my hair done on the day of the wedding and it was very reasonable and lasted all day!
All in all a fantastic trip and a great base for our time in Belfast – the people are so welcoming and friendly, they really made the trip!

I stayed for one night, on business, in the Gleanavon House Hotel. The staff were wonderful – nothing was too much trouble; the room was great, overlooking the mainentrance; and the food for both dinner and breakfast was fresh; very tsty; and plentiful.
Would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel for a visit.
Margaret D Trip Advisor Review May 2017
My husband and I stayed at Glenavon for 10 days and have enjoyed our time here. I organized my family’s 2nd family reunion, which was also held here in the Adair Suite.
During our own stay in this hotel, we have been so impressed with every single person we have met who works here. Each employee works for the guests in every way possible. The room has been cleaned every day. Every question or enquiry has been answered by the very hospitable and caring staff at Glenavon.
Throughout the family reunion, I was kept up-to-date with every detail and I was supported throughout my endeavours to make our family reunion a success. I could not have done it without the wonderful people of Glenavon Cookstown!
My husband Michael and I highly recommend staying here at the hotel. The cost was LESS than expected for a top-notch hotel. We will definitely be back here for our next trip to Cookstown! THANK YOU Glenavon – you’re great!

Stayed here for a wedding and then added on a few days for a wee break. Very friendly reception staff and extremely helpful. . Always welcomed with a smile in dining room and food was very good with a wide selection of choices for breakfast. Glenavon Hotel, Cookstown was well placed for a few day trips never having to travel too far to get to north coast, Belfast or Donegal.
Would highly recommend hotel for a short break.

Great nights fun at Tommy Tiernan. Had amazing fillet steaks and great wine before show. The Show was superb with an intimate but well managed setting. Service as always was second to none, ensuring all 15 guests in my party were happy. Well done The Glenavon – great night.

I stayed here on business this month for a couple of nights and it is a great hotel , well furnished , polite staff and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was good with an option of a continental breakfast if leaving before 7am which was great.
Jim Montgomery Trip Advisor Review April 2017
Great food and great service, a member of our party was disabled and there was a good disabled access.
Marie McCrystal Google Review April 2017
I stayed here on a Saturday night with a group of girlfriends. Our rooms where large each with a double bed and a single. They were clean and well equipped. The price for our stay included our dinner along with with bed and breakfast. Dinner portions could have been a little smaller and better presented but tasty all the same. There was a cooked breakfast available that was self service and also tasty. The reception staff were very pleasant. The views of the river where very pretty. We would certainly visit again. There was plenty of car parking available also.

Nicole Spratt Email Review April 2017

Stayed in the Glenavon for one night with my wife on a Saturday night on the Bed and Breakfast and evening meal deal.

On arrival we walked in to a beautiful decorated reception area and even though the hotel was very busy with a big wedding we where welcomed by a very friendly and helpful receptionist.

Our room was very nice with a modern decor and a nice view over the river. Yes parts of the rooms decor could be doing with a bit of a touch up but was spotlessly clean and a very comfortable bed.

Our meal with our package was a 4 course in the Cellar restaurant was very nice our menu had a limited choice but we both found a starter and main that we thoroughly enjoyed and we could choose from anything on the desert menu.

Breakfast the next morning was a buffet style with plenty of choice and again we both really enjoyed it.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in staying here again.
Thank you to all the staff and management for our lovely night away.

Luke McD Google Review March 2017
On Monday two colleagues and I had lunch in this idyllically situated hotel in the banks of the River Ballinderry as it meanders its way to Lough Neagh, the largest freshwater lake in the British Isles and the third largest in Europe. The setting is matched by the warm welcome by friendly Cellar Restaurant staff and the high quality of the food served in the lunch time carvery.
J142 Trip Advisor Review March 2017
Nice rooms, very cozy, in a very nice and quiet location, and good food. The portions are huge and the prices are very good. the service is super. loved our stay there. Will surely visit again if I return to Dungannon.

Louise Murray Personal Review January 2017
Had an excellent stay at the weekend with a friend to break the ‘January blues’!
Beautiful hotel with a gorgeous entrance hall! Staff at the reception were excellent and looked out for us throughout the day and made sure we were always ok
We had a few cocktails in the hotel bar at £4.95 was good value. We used the pool and the facilities were great. Hairdryer station bonus
We had dinner that evening which for the residents four course meal which we had booked was £20, but also if u didn’t want off this menu you could order off the a la Carter menu. No complaints about the food. I got the sirloin and it was cooked to my liking of medium perfectly
Night club entry to Sense was included in our stay and because we ate in the restaurant we were upgraded to VIP. There was a table waiting on us in a private area overlooking the dance floor.
We had a brilliant stay and will definitely return to the hotel again either for a family trip or for a trip with friends .
Joanne Lynch Personal Review January 2017
Stopped off and never booked(Sunday). We had coffee while we waited for the restaurant to open at 5pm and the staff and service was excellent as usual. I have never been disappointed in this hotel. They have refurbished it recently and it is gorgeous. I would recommend it for everything including weddings .
Moke Tripadvisor Review January 2017
Just back from a fantastic weekend for my 40th birthday and I must say it was amazing from the minute we set foot in the door until leaving! Receptionists were so so friendly and always had a smile and asked who we where getting on so thank you for that. The rooms where amazing and the craic was 90. The bar served a great selection of drinks and at a very good price, the breakfast was a buffet which I prefer and is served from 7am until 10am and nothing was to much trouble. The dinner menu was really good plenty to choose from but I would advise you book as it’s very busy on a sat night! The waiting staff where all lovely. And the hotel is spotless and had a lovely smell of cleanliness throughout. All in all one of the best hotels I have stayed in and I have stayed in a lot!!!! Would definitely recommend and I will be back in the near future for definite .
Pauline Harrison Personal Review January 2017
“Excellent Family Friendly Hotel” We stayed as part of the Santa’s magical forest package and had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Due to our late arrival we were a little pushed for time but the restaurant staff were excellent and ensured we were served a delicious meal within our short time frame. When we returned from the forest a room was set up for a hot chocolate supper with a Christmas movie playing, a perfect end to the day. We stayed in a very large and well equipped family room which was spotlessly clean. Selection boxes and Christmas activity packs were placed on each child’s pillow which they loved. The next morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast before availing of the leisure facilities. We will definitely be returning! .

“Lovely Stay” As we were visiting family in Cookstown it made sense to book into the Glenavon using the two night deal. From start to finish it was a great experience, beautiful grounds and setting. The building looks really striking from arrival.
Staff couldn’t do anymore to please you…
Swimming pool/ sauna facilities fantastic and great to use.
Can’t wait to come back soon.

A really friendly hotel from checking in to checking out the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly and nothing was too much bother.
The restaurant was clean and tidy and the food was always well presented and delicious.
Facilities lovely with the swimming pool being one of my highlights. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle and paper yourself.
lynmer123 Tripadvisor Review October 2016
We’d just like to say a big thank you to all of you at the Glenavon hotel for doing such a fantastic job with our mum’s 70th birthday celebration. Everyone, and especially mum, had a great time. The food (including catering for mum’s coeliac diet), service and entertainment were all second to none. We really appreciated how flexible, relaxed and hospitable you were – especially not minding us being about most of the day! Big thank you to Michelle, Roberta and all the staff on that day that had to put up with us and all our questions and requests! Thanks again for helping making this occasion so special. We will be recommending you! Best wishes.

I would just like to thank you for looking after us so well on the night of our stay last Thursday. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was great.
A special thanks to the chef for the amazing pasta salad in tubs that you made the next morning – all the cyclists said it was the best pasta they ever tasted.
We made it to Malin Head and raised over £120k to be split between The Irish Cancer Society and The Mater Heat Foundation which was a great result.

I have been staying here whenever I travel to Cookstown on business for the past 20 years. I have always had a great reception and have stayed in many rooms all as good as the rest. The evening meals have always be of a good standard so I don’t eat anywhere else. Added bonus is the pool and gym. I will definitely be back as I look forward to my stay, travelled on business

Doc813 Trip Advisor Review August 2016
We recently got married in Malta and decided to have our “home party” / evening reception in the Glenavon. James Whylie who looked after us was a gent from the very start and made sure all bases were covered so that the evening ran smoothly. Being in the Glenavon on a regular basis with using the gym and leisure facilities etc I kind of forgot what a beautiful hotel it really is. The rooms were spacious, clean and excellently styled out, the staff were excellent and everyone was very accommodating. Your night porters Aidan and Danny deserve special recognition for keeping everyone entertained until the early hours of the morning. Also a nice touch was a free meal voucher for our anniversary next year that the staff offered us.. Thanks for everything!
Dwayne M Trip Advisor Review August 2016
We had a very enjoyable stay (2 nights) at the Glenavon House Hotel. We went with our 3 children and were able to stay in the same room, which had a double and four singles, nicely decorated with plenty of space. We were lucky to overlook the canal (room 108). Free wi-fi and terrific spa. We had a good meal in the restaurant and also a very good room service meal. The staff made sure my gluten intolerant husband was looked after well, they all work very hard and are really friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer. Completely baffled as to why this hotel has only 3 stars when we’ve stayed in many 4 stars with less facilities and not nearly as lovely. My only small criticism is the lift is slow! If we ever travel to Northern Ireland again this would be the first hotel we’d book. From here you can travel by car to the Giant’s Causeway, Enniskillen and the west coast for day trips!
Claire H Google+ Review July 2016
From the minute we entered the hotel, we were greeted by a stylish foyer and a warm smile at hotel reception. The staff were amazing! We knew immediately it was the perfect venue for our special day. James (our contact) couldn’t of done enough for us. Nothing was a problem. Everyone commented on the hotel and the food. We had the pleasure of staying in the spacious bridal suite. It was spotless and very modern. We loved our day and would HIGHLY recommend The Glenavon House Hotel!

Everything went incredibly well and we cannot thank you, Roberta and the rest of the staff enough. Throughout the planning and in the final few days it really stood out to us how nothing was too much for you all. It made our lives so much easier and we are incredibly thankful for that. Your staff were so courteous and helpful to ourselves and all the guests and so many people commented to us about that.
We genuinely can’t thank you enough for all you did to help us along the way and we are so glad we were able to have our reception with you.
Looking forward to being back in the near future.

Steve & Carol Planchant Email review July 2016
We stayed at the Glenavon Hotel for a night as a treat for my daughter completing her exams. Our two rooms were spacious with a lovely en suite. Dinner was very tasty with an ample amount. We really enjoyed the leisure facilities with swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. My daughter had a treatment from the beautician which she thoroughly enjoyed. The only thing that wasn’t great was the bedrooms were very warm and affected our sleep. We got the 1 night dinner, b and b package which is very reasonably priced. We will be back.
februaryfi Tripadvisor review July 2016
Just back from an overnight stay in this great hotel. Reason for visiting was to go to The Jungle NI and so glad we chose this hotel. The receptionists Emear and Oonagh (I think?) really went out of their way to help me when I was in a bit of a pickle. The staff in the restaurant are friendly and food is good. The spa team are so helpful and one of the boys even encouraged my son to join in an impromptu game in the pool – he loved it. I can’t thank you all enough for making our stay so enjoyable. The spa facilities are brill and just what we needed after our adventures in The Jungle. Our room was spot on and the bed was really comfy. Am recommending to family and friends in Belfast and we will def be back later this summer. Would even think about changing our annual road trip to here instead of our usual in Funtasia/Tayto Park!
CathynConor Tripadvisor review July 2016
I stayed here for one night on business and stayed in room 103 overlooking a little stream at the back of the property. The hotel is situated off the road with a nice garden and trees and is very quiet. The room was a good size with a large bathroom which had a bath and waterfall shower head. Toiletries and shower caps are provided. There is trouser press in the room also. The tv has all the terrestrial channels from the UK and also satellite channels. The Wi-Fi is bitbuzz which was a bit annoying as you had to keep connecting to it every time you had switched on your tablet. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well. Dinner in the bar was disappointing. I ordered chilli beef which was £17.95. What I got was some beef pieces in a gravy but there was not hint of chilli and it was very bland. The beef was very good but overpriced for what I got. Breakfast is served from 7 and is buffet style. Free Belfast Telegraph available in the morning. I used the pool which is 20m long- good enough to do some lengths! There is also a small Jacuzzi. The pool is very nice. All in all a good stay and good value.

Suzanne M, Ladies darts weekend away Tripadvisor Review May 2016
We just had our wedding reception in the hotel on the 30th April.
We can’t thank the staff and especially James for everything at the wedding.
From the minute we met Roberta at the hotel wedding fayre to booking with James and every meeting and email in between and after the wedding it has been perfect!!
James is never far from the phone to reply.
We chose the Glenavon as it was close to home and plenty of rooms for all the family traveling from Laois, the hotel was welcoming to everyone!
The food was outstanding and everyone was remarking how tasty and enjoyable it was and the best of men unable to take seconds as the feed was 100%.. And how they could sit without having to more for the evening music.
Breakfast the next morn.. Super!!
We can’t thank the Glenavon enough for how well our day went and without any doubt we will be recommending anyone to chose the Glenavon!!
Thanks to everyone for all that was done to make our day as special as it was!

I wish to compliment your staff on their excellent customer service and a special word of thanks to Michelle in the restaurant she was amazing today.

My Mother was 70 years old today and we had a reservation to stay over but unfortunately had to cancel as my mother was in hospital for an operation however we decided to still go for the meal as it was her 70th and the consultant gave her permission to do so. Your staff were friendly and attentive and it really made her day so a special thanks to them. I will endeavor to spread the word of how good our day was in the Glenavon Hotel Cookstown.

Lisa Wilson Facebook December 2015

I stayed in the Glenavon House Hotel on the 18th December with my two sisters and our friend Margaret although one of my sisters and Margaret were staying for another night and meeting up with two more friends!!! We had booked this including breakfast and an with an evening meal up to the value of £20.

Our evening meal for £20 each was absolutely amazing. Such a choice of starters, main courses and sweets including tea and coffee was such value for money and all our meals were superb we did send our compliments to the chef. There was also music which was great!!

Our room was a family room very spacious and well stocked with shampoos etc and a lovely view of the river. Plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits. Our breakfast next morning was of the same high standard with plenty of choice of juices, cereals, fruits and the good old Irish fry, exceptional and all fully complemented with the lovely staff of the Glenavon.

I have stayed here a few times now and each time the welcome and professionalism of this hotel just overwhelms me. The staff are all very happy and any we talk too have been with the hotel for years or are family members. To the hotel and staff I say a big, big thank you for making our stay a wonderful experience and I do hope 2016 is a fantastic year for you all.

To anyone reading this don’t just read make a booking and experience this lovely hotel and its people for yourself.

**Our Wedding Venue** Could not have asked for a better venue to hold a wedding reception. The reception area was beautifully decorated for Christmas, the room was perfect and spacious (with 2 bars and toilets within) and the food was excellent. So many guests complimented the food, service and venue. Many of our guests stayed the night with us in the hotel which was very accommodating in allowing the party to go on as long as possible!! The staff were very professional and dedicated to making the day perfect. This part of the wedding was easily planned with no stress due to the hotel staff. Would highly recommend it.

We had our wedding at the glenavon on New Year’s Eve past in the beautiful Tyrone suite, and from the moment we booked the hotel in January 2014 until we checked out the morning after the wedding, James and his team have been absolutely first class! They could not have done any more for us! Every little thing was seen to and it was perfect! Every question I had in the run up and my countless emails to James were always answered and I never once felt like I was annoying him! Even emails sent the night before the wedding at 11.30pm were replied to cheerfully and excitedly!

The sheer amount of people that have said to me how amazing the food was is phenomenal! And it was delicious! From the soup to the main course to dessert to the evening buffet! There was very little left! The food was out prompt after the speeches, we were offered seconds or as much as you could take! We had quite a few young children attending including babies and toddlers and even our own daughter at the top table and it was so nice that all their food was out first and that they could have what they wanted to eat!

Each and every member of the hotel were so friendly and approachable which makes such a difference! The new foyer looked gorgeous and with the Christmas decorations was a beautiful backdrop to countless photos! The bridal suite was beautiful and breakfast in bed the next morning was an added bonus! We genuinely could not imagine that our special day would have went so well at any other venue. We are already looking forward to our complimentary anniversary meal and could not recommend this hotel enough!

Aisling Quinn Trip Advisor Review January 2016
I just wanted to send an email of thanks for the use of your facilities on Saturday 24th October 2015 and also compliment you on the helpfulness of your staff. There wasn’t one request that I made that someone did not try to assist me. Your venue is picturesque and coupled with very friendly staff and central location leaves your hotel an ideal location for future venues. I would certainly recommend your venue to any organisation wanting to host a conference.

To The Management of The Glenavon House Hotel, Cookstown.

I just wanted to compliment your Reception Staff for their efficient, polite and helpful gesture to our members on Saturday 24th October 2015.

I thought I had booked a room for our Ulster Trefoil Executive meeting at 10.00am but to my horror on arrival, I became aware that I had booked a Hotel of the same name in England! Despite hosting two Conferences and a Wedding reception, within 10 minutes they had us comfortably accommodated, including a welcome cup of tea/coffee and scones.

We will certainly be recommending your hotel and facilities to anyone in the future.

Margaret Crawford Chairman Ulster Trefoil Guild October 2015

If your looking for a cosy traditional bar in Cookstown then step no further than the Cellar Bar in the Glenavon Cookstown. Pub Spy popped in on an impromptu visit on Saturday night and was delighted by the wide selection of drinks they had to offer. The prices too were very reasonable for a hotel.

A couple of friends and I sat at a table and ordered three bottles of beer and chatted with locals and also guests who were staying over for a wedding.

Entertainment commenced around 9pm with an excellent performer who has us all singing along in no time. The Cellar Bar is very relaxed and has a chilled out atmosphere. Although we were all dressed up ready for a night on the town it’s the kind of bar where you can go casual but still feel right at home.

Sunday World Newspaper Review October 2015

OUTSTANDING SERVICE. I want to thank all the Management/Reception Staff, Cleaning/Housekeeping Staff, Gardeners/Maintenance Staff of the hotel for making my daughter Leanne Crawford and Robert Robinson’s Wedding on Friday 9th October such a wonderful occasion.

The outstanding service was second to none even though there were 3 weddings on the day. The individual and personal service and friendly staff was brilliant throughout the day.

I would like to pay a special mention to “Roberta” and her team who were so wonderful and efficient in the function room and great with all the children especially my 16 month old grandson who created “such a mess – dear help the cleaning staff!”

The food was wonderful and tasty and so hot and we enjoyed the overnight stay and indeed the great variety of breakfast.

As the bride’s mother and father it will be a great privilege for us to certainly recommend the Glenavon House Hotel for weddings and indeed we have visited since this several times for the Sunday Carvery.

Well done to everyone!

Ronnie and Fiona Postal Review October 2015

We held our wedding here at the Glenavon on 26.09.2015 and it was the best decision we ever made. The day was perfect. Everyone at the Glenavon went over and above to make the day special for us. James and all the girls on reception were so helpful, friendly and efficient everytime we rang and on the day Paula had everything perfect including sorting out some last minute changes to numbers. We had a lot of guests visiting from England and further afield and everyone of them loved the Glenavon. A lot of our guests had not been to Ireland before and they couldn’t get over how friendly and helpful everyone at the hotel was. If you are thinking about choosing the Glenavon for your wedding…..do it. They were brilliant. We wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks for everything.

Dear All, Just a note of thanks for the way all of you treated us when we stayed at the Glenavon recently. What a wonderful team you all are!

Mick & Ann Fee Postal Review October 2015

Thanks to everyone who were so kind to my mum and dad who went for a meal in the hotel on Saturday afternoon. It happened to be their 46th Wedding Anniversary and, having got married at the Glenavon, we went there for a casual day out.

Michelle and the team’s kind attention to them – the ‘happy anniversary’ plate and the pavlovas were a lovely touch and made all of our day one to remember. They fully intend to be back for their 50th! Many thanks again.

The Glenavon House Hotel is the most amazing place to have a civil partnership. They done an amazing job for us. They made everything so stress free for us and our guests. They have a great team providing a very high standard of service. Their rooms are very cosy and comfortable. We had our service an reception in the Adair suite. After our service they accommodated our guests in the cellar bar while the wedding party an family went off to get photos taken. Both times the suite was set up to our requests perfectly. They truly had a helping hand in making our day magical. Thank you so much! Aislinn & Louise Heagney

Our recent visit to this hotel was truly a wonderful experience.We found the reception staff very pleasant, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our experiences with the restaurant staff was something similar. At breakfast we were welcomed in, shown to our table and treated royally Our bedroom was very clean, with free wifi, television and radio.The location was ideal for our visit,with reasonable access to both Belfast International Airport and M1 motorway.The Riveria Club which is part of the hotel complex is well worth visiting and was used by us several times.It had the usual facilities. Everything was spotless and the staff very helpful.

We had a great time at the Glenavon! The facilities were excellent and the staff were most helpful. They really went the extra mile to ensure that our visit was a wonderful one. Congratulations to them.

Our wedding reception was held at the Glenavon so our children took us on Friday 4th September to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. My mother who was 90 the following week was with us. A big big thank you to the staff of the Cellar Bar especially Michelle. The food was delicious and the champagne outstanding. The children were also very well catered for and enjoyed the colouring-in pictures. Children made very very welcome. We were made to feel ‘special’. We had a wonderful night thanks to your friendly and helpful staff. We have been passing on to our friends and family how much we enjoyed your hotel and mum is telling everyone. Hope to see you all soon again.

David and Doreen Donaldson Personal Mail September 2015

The entrance lobby to the hotel is newly refurbished and just has that real class and expensive feel to it.

Ladies on reception all lovely, very welcoming and very helpful. Even the wee girl who took my booking over the phone had a lovely manner warm and welcoming. Our room was huge room 101 a bit far away from reception (for let’s say older guests) but we were fine and it was a lovely quiet nights sleep. Beds were comfortable, everything spotlessly clean and an extraordinarily large bathroom. Lovely warm decor and could not fault.

Leanita G Trip Advisor August 2015
We held or wedding reception in the Glenavon House Hotel in August this year and we could not have been happier with it. It was the first hotel we looked at and we booked it that same day. We thought it was going to be difficult to organize as we live in America but there was always someone available to talk to over the phone and James was always very quick to respond to my emails.
Our big day was perfect!!! Everything ran smoothly and on time. James was brilliant, the hotel staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was delicious and there was plenty of it – which the guests were all very happy about.
My husband is from Tipperary so all of his family and friends stayed for either two or three nights and they got a great deal. They all commented on how friendly the staff were, the excellent food and it was a bonus to have the leisure facilities.
We highly recommend the Glenavon House House as a wedding venue.
Thank you for making our day perfect from start to finish. Erin & Shane

This is a note of thanks to your staff and especially Ann in reception.  I was at the hotel this morning with a deaf friend.  We were first of all in the bar area and later in reception seeking some help.  All your staff were as nice as always but Ann especially went way beyond the call of duty to help us.  I just wanted to say a huge thank you both from myself and my deaf friend.  Her attitude towards even the least important customers is refreshing and worhty of commendation.  Please pass this message in to her.
Denis Feiler June 2015
Thank you to all the staff for making our stay at the hotel a delight.  We have stayed in many hotels in our lifetime but have never had such warm hospitality that we received from all your staff.  We brought our aunt with us for her 80th birthday, she originates from Coalisland.  Michelle and Ann made such a fuss over her, she was delighted, a real treat for her.  Many many thanks for the courteous hospitality we all received.  It was fantastic to be treated with such politeness, nothing was too much trouble and all your staff need the justified praise.  Thank you all again.

Super comfortable, perfectly friendly.  Wow this hotel is great value for money.  The rooms are spacious with the most fantastic woodland views.  The staff were so polite and friendly I did not want to leave.  Dinner was fit for a king.  The mash potato is to die for.  Will definitely be recommending this hotel.

Thanks so much to the management and staff for a fantastic stay at the Glenavon this weekend.  Yas certainly made us feel so welcome as always.
Terry Rowan Facebook Review July 2015
Great hotel and value for money.  Went for one night with the family to relax, had a brilliant time, the staff where very pleasant and helpful.  The leisure facilities were great and my son enjoyed the pool as there were floats and all provided.  The rooms were good but some of the decor needed updated, but still nice.
Michael V Trip Advisor July 2015
We held our wedding reception at the Glenavon House Hotel at the start of July.  James was absolutely fantastic, whatever I wanted, he organised.  The food and service was first class, we had so many of our guests compliment how good the food was.  The bar staff were attentive too, thanks to the young barman who went out of his way to get he crisps my Dad wanted later that evening.  And to top off a good night was the comfy sleep and the honeymoon breakfast in bed we had the next morning.  Thank you Paula and James for going over and beyond your duties in organising our reception, we have fantastic memories of the day.  We certainly recommend the hotel to all those Brides to be.
Jmkco Trip Advisor July 2015
Had a 3 night stay back in Jan 15 and returned for a 2 night stay late April 15. Phoned up to book and got a better rate than online and they I asked if I could have a room with a desk as per last visit and they put me in the same room. Got a friendly welcome on check in and staff were very friendly throughout my stay. Used the gym and again very friendly. Food was good value for money. Breakfast was hot self service with a good choice. Overall another friendly enjoyable stay would reccommend.

Paula, can I just say that Roslyn your member of staff was fantastic to me with helping book my rooms. Could I ask that a special thank you and appreciation be given to her for all her help by the management. A little thank you goes a long way. She is an asset to your hotel. Kind regards.

I just wanted to thank everyone at the hotel for the wonderful service we all had celebrating Sean’s birthday. The food was gorgeous and the service was excellent, the reception staff, restaurant staff right through to the staff in the nightclub. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their stay / experience and cannot wait to get back for another night.
Michelle Tracey March 2015
Attention;General Manager I’d like to extend my warmest thanks to all of your staff during my recent stay. My colleague and I were very impressed by your level of customer service. It was excellent – always appropriate and never intrusive. From check in staff,night porters,restaurant staff and your conference team…it all worked like a dream. We met some staff who seemed to be everywhere covering various job roles and they interacted courteously,efficiently and professionally at all times. They all seemed genuinely interested in the customer and not merely ‘going though the motions’. Well done to you all.
Anne McIntosh January 2015
Thank you so so so much, sincere thanks to James for his organisation of our dinner dance last Sunday night. The meal was excellent, special thanks to Patrick the chef, sincere thanks to all the ladies who served the meal for their efficiency and courtesy. Thanks to Danielle and Gareth who look after us every Sunday night.

To everyone at the Glenavon, many thanks for looking after all of us for the past couple of years. All the best.
Chris Lincoln Veoila Water Hotel Review November 2014
Ticks majority of boxes, staff complete the formula to make your stay a true pleasure.
After staying at the Glenavon House Hotel for a number of weeks recently, I feel compelled to share my experience.
The Glenavon offers everything one would expect from a hotel of this rating but also much more in the way of helpful, super-friendly and professional staff.
The house keeping was second to none, done discretely and swiftly to a very high standard.
The reception staff were excellent, making me feel at home from day one.
The leisure centre makes a long-term business stay far easier with a well equipped gym and swimming pool, steam room etc.
the restaurant and bar staff were mostly delightful, engaging and kept a fun, relaxed atmosphere. I had some good meals from the restaurant washed down with well kept Guinness.
Kitchen staff were always happy to accommodate special requests and this again is a nice personal touch for a long-term resident to rely on.Whether for business or pleasure the people make this Hotel what it is.
Service second to none, hotel very clean and rooms are warm, comfortable and well serviced.
Michael R  Trip Advisor November 2014

Excellent service and cleanliness throughout the entire establishment. Beautiful grounds and the most friendly staff. This is an area we never travel to but after this wonderful experience at the Glenavon House Hotel we will certainly be back.

Sharon Booking.com September 2014

We met today–a group of 12 retired teachers and had a lovely carvery lunch The service and quality of food was fantastic. The staff were so attentive and no one hurried us out of the cellar after we ate. They even carried us more tea and coffee. The price was very reasonable and the visitors among us could not get over the attention to detail. Great spot

Moke Omagh Trip Advisor May 2014

Huge thanks for everything last night – your staff are a credit to you. Our guests all had a fantastic night so thank you for all your help.

Jacqueline McGonigle LinkedIn May 2014

Had a fab stay at the hotel and really enjoyed the break. It was such a delight to see a real cot in the room as opposed to a travel cot so much we all slept in! It was a rush to get ready for the feis. Food was lovely and swimming pool was spotless. I hope to rebook for the Omagh championships and stay for 2 nights. Thanks.

Carolanne Email review May 2014

Stayed at the Glenavon on 14th February with my friend, mum and aunt, this hotel is quite local but I felt a wee treat was needed, so we went to their leisure centre which was fabulous, especially the Jacuzzi, we had the most wonderful pre theatre meal before we went to the Burnavon and we were very pleased with the service from all the staff, thanks again to the Glenavon staff for a pleasant stay

On behalf of the Dungannon Marie Curie Fundraising Group I would like to thank you most sincerely for your support of our Great Daffodil Ball held at the beginning of March. Please convey my special thanks to James for his guidance and help both before and on the night of the event and to all the staff who helped set up, serve, clear up and of course to Chef. It was a great night with really good feedback from all our patrons. Thank you for your support – it is much appreciated. Hopefully see you next year!

Sandra Spence April 2014

We had our reception at the Glenavon on Valentines Day 2014. From the moment we booked it untill the day after the wedding we could not have faulted the staff. It is so easy got to no hours of driving (we live in Armagh), the very competitive prices and very high standard of food was second to none. We were very ably looked after on the day by James who insured not only us but our guests were well looked after. Everyone who attended the wedding remarked on how brilliant it was especially the food and the never ending second helpings. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfast was fantastic. The Adair Suite where the reception was held was beautifully decorated, we opted for no chair covers even though they were included in the package, we thought the chairs beautifully matched the decor without covering them, it was different to most weddings this way. We can’t speak highly enough of the Glenavon especially the ambiance of the place. We would highly recommend this venue for any function but especially a wedding. Nothing is any problem to the very efficient team of staff. Amony our guests was a Michelin Star Chef and my aunt who ran a fine dining restaurant in Chester for years,they were well pleasesd

Agatha – Armagh Trip Advisor February 2014

We have used this hotel for numerous family trips. the staff are very friendly, the food is great and most importantly they have an excellent family room that sleeps six comfortably with a double and 4 single beds. Added to that the big pool, soft play next door and Drum Manor for a nice walk we have had some brill family trips!

Catrina, a wee line to say a massive thank you for everything at our conference last Wednesday. The staff were really helpful and James was fantastic, kept the whole thing right and nothing was ever a problem. The feedback from yesterday was great, lots of excellent comments on the venue / food. Thank you again, appreciate it.

Paula  Napp  January 2014

To all the staff at Glenavon Hotel. Just a big thank you for all your kindness and helpfulness in making the family reunion night a huge success for my daughter Esther. The buffet was superb and so were the staff. Many thanks again.

Valerie and Melvin Johnston  January 4 2014

Myself and my friends stayed in the Glenavon in May. Our only regret is that we could only stay one night.

Our entire experience was excellent. The rooms, the food and the service were second to none. I have stayed in many places but I have yet to meet staff who were as friendly and as helpful as the staff at the Glenavon. They left us wanting for nothing and would do whatever they could to help us.

The rooms were excellent and extremely comfortable. I had a lot of work to do while I was there and the internet provided was top quality. Zero lag, no crashes and connected without and connected without an issue.

Padraig Wicklow  Trip Advisor

Christmas Party Night. Meant to say we all had a great night, food and staff were faultless, the band was fantastic we will be sure to book for next year again. Pass on our thanks for a great night to all involved and see you next year.

We chose the Glenavon House Hotel as our wedding venue as it was so reasonably priced. We had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Glenavon, right from day one the staff made us feel at ease and helped us with any queries we had during planning. On the day itself everything ran smoothly and we had no problems at all due to staff being so organised. The food and service during our meal was excellent. Most of our guests stayed overnight and were all impressed by the size and cleanliness of the rooms. All in all we had a great day and would definately recommend the Glenavon House Hotel as a wedding venue.

Maginty  Trip Advisor  2014

Good hotel. Friendly staff. Above average for price range. Free Wi-Fi in room.

Quite simply a home away from home, always a friendly smile and a personal welcome. By far, my most favourite place to stay!
