Only used the spa facilities but have eaten and been at various functions in the hotel many times. The spa is excellent. Huge pool, beautiful decor, spotlessly clean and a relaxing atmosphere. Complimentary Espa products in showers and changing area let you waft out on a cloud! Beautiful changing area, dark oak? Wooden lockers, comfy leather benches, plenty of mirrors... More

From the second we arrived to when we left, we had the most relaxing and enjoyable stay. The bedrooms are beautiful, comfortable and homely. Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to bring our stay forward by a few days. Had we not been able to arrive that day, the trip would have had to have been cancelled. However, the member... More

We stayed here for 1 night. The staff could not be more helpful! We had a lovely room overlooking the sea and Mournes. Even though there was a noisy wedding downstairs, we didn't hear a sound all night. Had dinner in the Oakes Restaurant, and the food was beautiful. The spa is amazing. Had a thoroughly wonderful stay and would... More
