We spent one night here in June 2014. We were given a friendly welcome and all assistance and information we needed. The location was perfect as we were climbing Slieve Donard the following day. The one night package included bed, seafood dinner and bottle of wine, and breakfast. It was good value. A packed breakfast was offered as we were... More

My boyfriend stayed here two weeks ago. Obviously the staff go over and above what is expected from them, as my boyfriend ended up copping off with one of the waitresses. So if you're looking for a good time (if you know what I mean) stay here. but otherwise, ladies don't let your men stay here.

Dirty, toilets beyond unhygienic, soap dispenser filthy, dirty dried flowers. Actually had to ask for loo roll. Filthy mats laid over tiled floor, untrained staff. Food described by my 7 year old as school dinners. Kids pasta dish tasteless and inedible. Owner lady arrogant. Dodgy cheap light up tree which kept falling over beside table, says it all really!

You can expect a warm welcome from the good humoured staff. This hotel offers a stay that reflects the Irish temperament and outlook. Be prepared to laugh during your stay. Good homely grub at reasonable prices - served hot on HOT PLATES!!!! A real treat.

Having booked a table for two we arrived only to be given a very basic lunch menu. This was not the menu which we discussed with the staff member on the telephone the day before. We had been assured that all menus were available at all times in all areas. To be fair our server tried to resolve the issue... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our property is on the South Promenade at Newcastle Harbour: The harbour is among the most richly historic areas of Newcastle. Home to many longstanding families, the area around the pier has a long association with the sea. The origins of the current harbour date back to the 1820's, when a new pier was created by Lord Annesley to replace the old one. One of the chief functions of the pier was to act as a loading point for Mourne granite, which was quarried in the hills above the harbour. If you stand on the shorter arm of the pier and look up towards the mountain you can see a path cut through the trees leading to the now defunct quarry on Millstone Mountain. In the last century, stone was quarried here and dispatched down this track to the harbour by railtrucks. It was loaded on to ships (known as Stone Boats) and used to build docks in Belfast and Liverpool and the courthouse gaol in nearby Downpatrick ... more   less
