It had an awesome location in the center of Ardara. The rate was value for money. The room was clean, tidy and quiet. The staff were friendly, helpful and went above and beyond to assist me. The breakfast that was included was very nice. The bed was comfortable and it had a great shower. I enjoyed staying here and would... More

Everything you require for your stay. Everything worked in our room,the breakfast was plentiful & delicious,the evening meal was, in all honesty, the largest meal i have ever had... More

This hotel didn't represent good value for money. We found the level of service throughout to be lacking. The room was of a really poor standard with many damages (which later transpired staff were aware of). We had little sleep due to creaking floor boards which seems strange in this day and age. Free Wifi only appeared to be available... More

I booked the Nesbitt Arms for a large group to stay at the end of June. It was for a hen weekend and Liam couldn't have been more helpful with organising all aspects of our stay. He really went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. I was organising the weekend from Australia and Liam... More

Stayed in the Nesbitt Arms at the end of June on my nieces Hen Party in a group of 26. Liam was so helpful both in the organising of the Hen Party and during our stay. We were made most welcome when we arrived on Saturday morning and throughout our stay. Nothing was any trouble to Liam and his staff... More

Not only is the food great but I first gazed on one of Stephen Bennett's paintings while eating there. I ended up purchasing it and then visiting his studio...life changing. The wait staff was friendly, the prices reasonable and the food delicious.
