We couldn't speak highly enough about the quality of the rooms,which were spacious and well appointed with spectacular views over the sea,and the high standards of the service we received. The food was of excellent quality with special mention... More

This place is great! Friendly staff. Good food. Nice rooms. A must stay if you are visiting the north from the south. Very close to the Giants Causeway and easy to find. Booking was easy. Remember to bring your Pounds as they use that currency in the North as opposed to the Euro. Border exchanges are expensive. Take the eastern... More

Partners meal (pitta pocket) was just okay she said, but mine was ridiculous! Half a handful of pasta,half an overcooked chicken breast and 2 pints of watery sauce threw over does not constitute a main... More

Stayed at this pretty little hotel on Saturday night. The hotel at first glance seemed a little dated, but this actually adds to the character of the place. The rooms were basic, but perfect for a short stay, beds comfy although the rooms could do with a air cooling system. The food, WOW! Amazing and very reasonably priced, the house... More

My husband and myself stayed here at the smugglers inn on Fri 19th July. We had a lovely stay. The young guy behind the bar was very friendly and made us welcome. The dinner was full of flavour and the service very good. Will definitely be back. The rooms where spacious and spotless clean.
