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. Residents and delegates can enjoy the use of complimentary Wireless Internet (WiFi) access as well as ample on-site free car parking at the hotel.
This hotel is the perfect base for guests exploring the many delights of North Down’s top attractions and venues such as Castle Ward, Mount Stewart, Castle Espie and Exploris Aquarium.
