Family room perfect for our needs. Very spacious room allowing a toddler to blow off steam. Clean rooms friendly staff, reasonably priced rooms and food. Central location meant we could forget about the car. Wifi available for free which was very quick. Looking forward to our next stay.

We used to walk past the Donard for years. But once we visited the bar and the Tap Room we were sure to return many times. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The menu is exceptionally well-priced and the food is delicious. If you enjoy jazz music, there are are Sunday afternoon and weekend evening sessions. Definitely worth a visit... More

Spacious rooms. Hotel is basic but clean and is keenly priced. Really nice staff. Irish breakfast sets you up for the day. Centrally located. Newcastle promenade 2 mins walk. No pressure on checkout time. Would visit again.

Stay here regularly with my sister when visiting newcastle. Hotel is basic but clean and for the price it's well worth it. Most importantly the staff are lovely and friendly, very accommodating and couldn't do enough for u. Laid back atmosphere and will def be back again.

This is a great hotel to stay in. We were attending an event in The Slieve Donard Hotel, the price to stay there overnight was ridiculous which is why we opted for The Donard and I'm so glad that we did. The room and bathroom was spotless and had everything you needed in it. The hotel is located on a... More

I originally booked for two nights as I was at a conference in the nearby Slieve Donard Hotel. I did not need the second night and the staff went out of their way to accommodate me and gave me a full refund. This is a really good budget hotel. My room was clean with a comfortable bed and it had... More

The only saving grace for this hotel is the wonderful friendly & very accommodating staff. Both the interior & exterior are in dire need of major refurbishment and updating, currently it resembles a hotel from 1970 that hasn't been touched since it opened! Def not worth the money, more of a hostel than a hotel. The staff on the other... More
