I stayed at the Slieve Donard with a small group of close business friends. Most were playing golf and I booked a massage in the spa (last minute decision) and Lisa was delightful and excellent at massage. The business accommodation, bedroom and dining experience were all excellent. I hope to return before too long!

A hotel of this nature already 5 star really does not need any further recommendations - but I would like to say that our one night stay, after my nephew had his wedding at this hotel was wonderful. I have never slept on a bed so soft before - I felt like I was on a cloud! I even checked... More

Stayed 1 night at the SD last week. It was fantastic. We have stayed in different 5 star hotels and found that none come close to the SD. Staff, service, rooms, food and spa perfect. Can't wait to go back.

I recently attended a wedding at this hotel (I will not name the date in order not to embarrass the bride and groom), there were two weddings at the hotel on the day and I don't know if that effected the standard of the meal we were served or not but either way the meal was far from acceptable. The... More

Had a 2 night stay here at Easter. Great stay - spa facilities used to the maximum - sauna has floor to ceiling windows with view over bay, town and mountain backdrop; the vitality pool (jacuzzi) is long and thin, with all seats looking out on the same view rather than at the person opposite (no embarrassing leg tangles with...

I'm just back from an overnight stay at Slieve Donard as part of an Easter mini break. I think one of the hotel's main selling points is its setting, looking out over the Irish sea with the Mourne mountains as a backdrop. I did not grow tired of the awesome views once I ventured outside the hotel doors. In terms... More

Just Home From Our Midweek Break At Slieve Donard. Our Room Was Palatial And Luxurious. From Start To Finish We Felt At Ease And Relaxed. As Soon As We Drove Up The Driveway We Felt Pampered. Staff And Facilities Excellent. What A Shame We Couln't Stay Longer!!!! Can't Wait To Return.

I was nervous about our stay here for two reasons: one, I had read a lot of disappointing reviews on here and two, the rate for our room went up significantly between when I called to ask what the rate would be and when I called back to book. It was a price hike of £60 with no explanation at... More
