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

We had a wonderful night here, should have stayed for longer. The room was lovely and very comfortable. The spa was great. Percy French was lovely for dinner, we even got the seat by the fire after our meal. We will have to go back soon. I wasn't keen on the sausages in the morning but that may just be... More

It has been my fourth stay at the hotel over the last ten years. I can see how the place is changing, always for better. The hotel still needs changes but the location and the atmosphere are the two things other hotels can only dream of. My favourite place in the hotel is the bar. A bit pricey but once... More

Stayed in early January during the storms and it was wonderful to be tucked up indoors watching the sea, although I appreciate that the weather was destructive for others. We didn't have a sea view room but it was comfortable and spotless. Christmas decorations were still up and added to the overall ambience It had been many years since I... More

Just spent a wonderful weekend in Slieve Donard with my mum, sisters and mates to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was bliss, beautiful setting, lovely bedroom, fab spa. But what really made our stay was our interactions and chats with the Bar Manager Mr.Leo Fennell. Leo is a prime example of an excellent hotel manager; friendly, efficient, professional, fun and...

Wedding was really well organised by the hotel staff with a wonderful setting in the chandelier room. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff and we will definately return... More

Stayed here for a night late march 2014(Christmas present) Had paid to upgrade room which was just ok-No WIFI in rooms unless you are prepared to spend more! Had meal in restaurant which was ok. Staff not cheerful especially in restaurant. The grounds are lovely and well looked after but would not be in a hurry to return.

We stayed at the hotel for our tenth wedding anniversary and it didn't disappoint. Swimming in the pool to a backdrop of mountains and the beach was incredible. The quality of the spa facilities were excellent. The room and overall service was very good. The food at the restaurant was excellent & the bar staff were very attentive. Overall, it... More
