My partner and I were up in Portrush for the airshow on Saturday. I had tried to book accommodation weeks ago but being a busy weekend, everywhere was fully booked. When we were there we decided to take a walk and see perhaps if there were any last minute vacancies. The Oakdene was the first place we came to and... More

The room was very, very small, the ensuite was tiny, double beds average, pillows were flat and we wondered how old they were, not even a small soap to wash your hands after using the toilet. The Managers of Oakdene were lovely and very helpful and the breakfast was great. The owner needs to spend some money on the place.... More
