About the hotel

The Strangford Arms Hotel is situated in Newtownards, a lively market town nestled at the foot of Scrabo Tower and sited at the head of Strangford Lough. The hotel has the advantage of feeling far removed from hectic city life even though it is only a ten minute drive from Bangor and a twenty minute drive from Belfast city centres, while also having easy access to air, ferry, bus and train terminals. Recent extensive renovations and remodelling have created a new aura at the Strangford Arms Hotel, transforming this exceptional Victorian hotel into a vibrant, chic and contemporary venue with fantastic state-of-the-art facilities.

The steady investment over the past few years has re-invented the hotel into a thriving social and business cornerstone of the North Down community. Guests are able to relax in one of the 39 en-suite bedrooms or unwind with drinks and dinner in the award winning LeWinters' Bistro, Bar and Restaurant. LeWinters offers superb cuisine which is enhanced through the renowned friendly service which staff provide. At the weekend, guests and tourists can mingle with locals to enjoy live entertainment and the trendy nightlife that the hotel has to offer. The hotel's modern conference and banueting facilities were specially designed for corporate and professional events as well as private functions and weddings.

Was ok for a one night stay.

We were unlucky to pick a night with a wedding reception going on. Music went on till 1am, kept us awake.

My wife, 9 and 6 year old girls and myself had an overnight stay at the Strangford Arms.

We had a pleasant meal, a couple of drinks and retired to the room. So far so good. We all drifted off to sleep after a busy day. BOOM. At 5am we were wakened by a deafening fire alarm in the room. My eldest daughter started crying and took a great deal of calming down. I rang reception who surprise, surprise told me the hotel wasn't on fire it was a false alarm. We settled down and tried to get to sleep again when at 5.30am BOOM. the alarm went off again leading to more tears and anger. No more sleep was had that night. On exiting the lift on the way to breakfast I met the Duty Manager Sean. I explained what had happened during the night. His response was pretty much along the lines of I'm sorry but that happens every once in a while!!!. Well Sean, World Wars happen once in a while but people try to make sure they don't. Perhaps you should find out why it happens once in a while and do something about it. Needless to say we were too tired to do many of the activities we had planned to do on exiting the hotel and ended up returning home early.
