We had a brilliant experience in the Avoca hotel when nine of us arrived in without a booking and were immediately accommodate to a super table. We had the biggest surprise when we saw the menu, the choice was unbelievable it is a long time since I have seen such a variety and it was really tempting to read. We... More

We had a lovely stay here with my granny, mum and our wee dog Sophie ❤️. We loved that it was pet friendly, they were very accommodating. We enjoyed our breakfast and they were very attentive. Our beds were comfortable and the room was clean and tidy.

Horrible, dated, ugly hotel. Staff extremely abrupt, borderline ignorant. Shabby decor throughout. Breakfast better not talked about. Absolutely disgusting. £80 for a one night stay. My advice would be to pay an extra £30 and stay in the Slieve Donard.

We were staying in Newcastle at the Seaview Apartments and only visited the Avoca Restaurant which is denoted as Leslies. During the day the restaurant was very popular and busy. During the evenings it was a different story so if you wanted a peaceful and relaxing meal this was the time to go. The meals were quite good and the... More

We stayed here one night to attend a wedding at the Slieve Donard. The hotel is perfectly located on the sea front and we had a good view - though some net curtaining at the window would be helpful as the bed was next to the window and similarly allows a good view in! The rooms are a little tired... More

We were attending a wedding in Newcastle and booked into the Avoca Hotel. When we eventually got to our room via stairs and more stairs the view was fantastic, the room was very clean and a comfortable bed. However, to be told that breakfast finished at 9.45am and vacate your room at 11am was rather disappointing. My view, especially at... More

My wife and I booked into this hotel to go to the Nathan Carter concert in Newcastle. We found the hotel very good with very nice friendly staff and nice clean accommodation. The hotel is just across from the promenade with lovely views of the Mournes and across the Irish sea. Would certainly return again.

I have never spent a night in the Avoca but when I do I will leave another review. I have however had the pleasure of experiencing their restaurant. I was very impressed with the quality of the food. Food came out relatively quick despite the restaurant being very busy. I ordered the pork and stuffing special. Only issue I had... More

Nice place although I hurt my arm off those old door handles on my way to the toilets. Nice staff. Was dissapointed in the fish and mushy peas. The fish was two miserable pieces from the freezer, the chips had all black bits on them so the chef mustened have bothered to cut the bad bits away when peeling. The... More
