The Bank House Hotel offering boutique accommodation with a difference
For those planning on travelling to the centrally located small Irish town of Dungannon, situated just west of Belfast, than you should definitely consider staying a night or two in the unusual boutique styled accommodation named the Bank House Hotel. The building was originally built way back in 1897 and was constructed in an architectural style identical to the American federal banks of that era; the reason for this is believed to have been the choice of its owner of the time who had strong links with the U.S. To this day the building has been listed as a historical monument and still retains its original character which gives it an appealing charm to visitors.
The Bank House Hotels interior may initially seem like something out of the old American western movie with detailed wooden paneling, bank vault styled doorways, antique furniture and an overall small town rustic theme flowing through the hotels hallways. All of its 18 very spacious rooms come in unique shapes and sizes boasting clean modern dcors, large windows that let in lots of natural light and a range of much needed home comforts. Depending on how many people are accompanying you there is a choice of 3 different rooms which include the deluxe double, deluxe twin and family rooms with its largest housing up to 4 people with an extra bed added. All rooms come complete with a large en-suite bathroom and toilet, flat-screen digital TV with remote control, free WIFI access, an IDD telephone service, tea/coffee making facilities and complimentary bottled water. All areas of the hotel are strictly non-smoking except for those designated spots, rooms are fully heated and there are also facilities for guests with specific disability needs.
The Bank House Hotel hosts a variety of extra services available from the friendly staff at the 24-hour reception desk; these include daily laundry, ironing, breakfast in bed booking, newspaper delivery and document faxing/copying.
