Culloden Estate and Spa Hotel Review: This hotel was originally built as a palace for the Bishops of Down, and today the elegance and luxury of the estate remain: fine antiques, personal service and 12 acres of secluded gardens and woodlands. The hotel's Elysium Spa offers a wide range of individually tailored health and well-being programs and facilities, from spinning and yoga classes to a marble steam room and deck level pool. The 79 guestrooms and suites are tastefully decorated in warm yellows and rich woods, with marble bathrooms. Many rooms enjoy views of the manicured hotel gardens and Belfast Lough. Fine dining is available at Mitre Restaurant, where fresh Irish produce reigns. The less formal Cultra Inn offers wholesome, satisfying food in a garden setting. Six conference suites and boardrooms are equipped with fine antiques, valuable paintings and Louis XV chandeliers. Golf enthusiasts enjoy privileged tee-off times at the nearby Royal Belfast course, Ireland's oldest golf club.
