The Inn is halfway between Causeway and Rope bridge and a convenient place to stop off to refuel. We were seated quickly but had to go looking for someone to give our orders. We both ordered the steak sandwich which was very tasty. Had to go looking for someone again to pay. The serving staff were friendly when you could... More

Stopped off here for a bite to eat and a drink whilst visiting the Giants Causeway. Bar staff were friendly enough.. Food was nice. Small beer garden but was lovely sitting there with the sun shining down.. Will be back and visit again soon. Husband recommends steak and Guinness pie.

This hotel is absolutely fine for one night. It has an excellent position on the cliffs right near the Giants Causeway but you must be paying for the view because we did not think it was value for money. The welcome wasn't particularly friendly. The room, though clean and functional was uninspiring and the breakfast ordinary. We did not eat... More

A cozy place along the Causeway Road, close to the GC entrance and the town of Bushmill. Nice clean spacious room. Fine for a one night stay. Surrounded by farmland with livestock. Only disappointment was not getting to try a dinner; restaurant was very busy and apparently very good. Didn't want to take up a table as a solo traveler... More

Should have prebooked on the internet as price online is cheaper than if you just arrive. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly enough and the breakfast was good. There is no wifi in the rooms - only downstairs which was alittle inconvenient, but overall an ok place to stay.

My husband and I stayed for two nights recently with friends joining us. What can I say? Lovely spacious and spotless room, nice bathroom also. Bistro/bar terrific. Fab food and friendly service. Well placed to tour around the north Antrim coast. Would stay again.

I booked this hotel based on the location, amenities, and cost. This far exceeded our expectations. I had a group of 8 for a total of 5 rooms. The lucky ones got the front view of the ocean. The dinner and breakfast ( hot ordered plus continental ) was wonderful. Having the bar at night was great for a pint... More
