It was perfect for what we needed it for, a late night watering hole, a bed for a few hours, a wash and a breakfast - just dont ask for more orange juice as it my cause offence! I have no idea why the locals refer to it as the "dirty egg"?

This is the worst hotel in N Ireland. Avoid at all costs, the place is dirty, smelly and the owner is a very ignorant man. Food is horrible, rooms smell and decor is from the 70's!! DO NOT STAY HERE Try one of the other hotels in the town or one of the smaller bed & breakfasts.

I remember the school dinner hall in the eighties being better than what i saw today. Food was terrible and someone needs to explain what a Carvery is supposed to look like. The 'salad bar', oh wait, the bowl of coleslaw and bowl of beetroot was hilarious.There wasnt a bit of lettuce in sight. We had a choice of 4... More

This hotel was dump. Don't be fooled by the looks of the lobby and bar area. The rooms were small and dirty and the bathrooms were disgusting. Worse part was the noise. A pub is located next door. People were in the street screaming at 3:00am both nights we were there. Then the drag racing started up and down the... More
