So good we had to come back

Norman Wilson    Sat 20 Aug 2022

Our second stay in Hollow View after a short visit over Easter to Meadow Green, this time for just over a week. Both apartments are really comfortable, the housekeeping staff excellent and Michael and Barbara are very personable, welcoming and extremely willing to give valued advice about the immediate and wider area. A perfect spot for adults and children with the playground and tree house possessing a magnetic attraction!

We will always aim to stay here when we visit N Ireland. Thanks to Mary for all the smooth arrangements.

My favourite holiday retreat.

Alan Wilson   Sun 10 Jul 2022

As a young lad of 4 years old my family moved to live in the Stewart House on Florida Manor. We were there from 1944 until 1955. What a wonderful place to have lived. Having the opportunity to return for a holiday from Canada after all those years,and to see the wonderful restorations and upgrades that have been carried out by Michael and Barbara Lagan family is overwhelming for me. The Meadow Green suite where I stayed for 9 days is first class, comfortable, and immaculate with all conveniences one could ask for.

Mary Moore made arranging the accommodation so easy and was available to answer any questions.

I look forward to coming again for another treat.

Thanks to Michael, Barbara, Lagan's family, and Mary for all your help. Alan Wilson Nanaimo BC Canada.

Hidden Treasure

Even those from North Down don’t know about this hidden treasure. Our stay was idyllic. The estate has its own feeling of serenity. A true break from the usual busy life! Apartments are lovely and really well equipped.

Truly Beautiful Estate

Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful setting. Gorgeous grounds with a peaceful and quiet atmosphere. A little piece of history being restored carefully and with great consideration. The high quality finishes were impressive. We will certainly book again. The local eateries were fantastic. Thank you very much for having us Florida Manor!

Meadow Green Stay - Aug 2021

We stayed at Florida Manor in their Meadow Green apartment for three nights and our stay exceeded all our expectations! The apartment itself was immaculate and finished to such a high standard. We genuinely didn’t want to leave. The setting and grounds are idyllic and really child friendly with plenty to do and see, it is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Superb, Stylish, Comfortable and Peaceful

ELIZABETH IRVINE   Fri 06 Aug 2021

This was our second visit to Florida Manor. It was outstanding. The apartment was spotless and, comfortable and extremely well equipped. The beds were so comfortable and the towels and linens were of the highest quality and so tastefully chosen The bathrooms were outstandingly well appointed as was the kitchen. It was a delight to cook in the social kitchen, but the barbecue and fire pit were hard to resist. We enjoyed our walks around the estate, which is fascinating, and in the evening returning the luxury of underfloor heating. Thanks to a very warm welcome from Mary Moore. The nice surprise supply of tea, coffee, jam and cookies was a lovely touch and the checkin/out was so easy and swift. Until next time. Thank you.

An amazingly comfortable and homely 5 star property with relaxation at its core. Thoroughly enjoyed walking the beautiful grounds and enjoying the tranquil atmosphere the estate affords. Super comfortable beds and furnishings which top off the whole experience. Highly recommend nearby Balloo house for an exquisite meal.

So so clean and so much space! In a lovely setting with walks down along the river, the beds are so comfortable and the shower is amazing, could not find one fault with the place and for such a reasonable price! Private parking and it's gated so you know it will be safe! We had a great stay!”

Fantastic place

Collette Mayers   Tue 15 Sep 2020

We really enjoyed our stay at Florida Manor. Mary who looks after the booking was so helpful.

Checking in was easy.

The people there were very welcoming and friendly.

The accommodation is excellent and comfortable.

There are lots of walks and trails to enjoy.

It is also in a very convenient location with nice restaurants nearby.

Superb Short Break.

Richard Sinton   Thu 03 Sep 2020

My wife and I wanted a short break away from the house after the lockdown ended and we were lucky enough to find a vacant slot in the booking site. After an awesome journey of 3.8 miles, we found the contactless check in that Mary had explained via email to be easy and flawless. She let us know how soon we could get in and everything went to plan. Never expected such a beautiful, impressive and quiet place could exist so close to home, it really felt like we were in another part of the world. The river and lake walk was so peaceful, we spent an hour just taking in the scenery and watching the swans and seven cygnets on the lake. After reading this review, please take our advice and book immediately. Thanks Mary.

helen mcfall   Mon 24 Aug 2020

We spent 4 nights at Florida manor and all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Weather wasn’t great but the games room and use of the gator made up for this. Kids loved everything. House was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Thank you
