We stayed at the Slieve Donard in August as we were attending a wedding locally. The hotel was lovely - huge room, huge beds, huge bathroom, white fluffy bathrobes & slippers in the rooms, thick walls - didn't hear a thing - fantastic breakfast. We had booked a family room for two adults & two children & this was so... More

We got married at the Slieve Donard in July and we couldn't fault the venue at all. We had our ceremony & reception in the Chandelier room with views out over the sea and to the Mournes; such a perfect setting. Although it was a rainy day we still managed to get some great photos in the hotel. The staff... More

We took our Elderly Aunt for a 3 night stay, not realising it was over a bank holiday. The Hotel was fully booked on the Sunday and we had 2 rooms directly opposite the lift!!!!!!! I expressed my concerns but was told unsympathetically, the hotel was fully booked. By chance a manager passed me in the corridor and asked if... More

My friend and I had a day at the Slieve Donard Spa just over a week ago and it was my first experience of spa treatments. I have to say it was better than I could have imagined and that is in no small way down to the staff. We dealt with a lady named Jenny, a very homely and... More

Took some American visitors to the "Searchlight" at the Slieve Donard last Sunday, Staff were pleasant, service was pretty good but place very busy, crowded and seriously overpriced. Pity really as view over to Donard was spectacular...when we could see it.

Stunning location and courteous staff anxious to please. But on reflection...£130 for one night silly of me to assume my room would have a view. Room 317 has no view at all. Also a poorly fitted room door meant the room didn't feel private.Embarrassing overcrowding at breakfast- an earlier start time and later finishing time needed. No sign of quality... More

Hi my wife booked a night in the Slieve Donard in Newcastle Co Down as I was celebrating a significant milestone - let's leave it at that.... The room was beautiful - massive double bed and a spacious en-suite and the view was of the sea - very nice indeed. The shower was big - but the pressure was not... More

Stayed here for 3 nights last week. Could not fault it! With a child under 2 sometimes I worry that fancy hotels may not be very child friendly but Slieve Donard is a good mixture of a relaxing luxurious break but also great for families. My child can be a bit of a fussy eater at breakfast but all I... More
