I stayed here for 5 nights recently, and I really enjoyed everything except one little thing about this place. But, firstly lovely location, good clean rooms, staff at reception, breakfast room, the pool were for the most part fantastic, and helpful. Only 1 member of staff, an older guy at reception late on Saturday night, wouldn't give anyone a drink... More

This hotel is well situated beside the lough. It provides comfortable but slightly dated accommodation. Everything works well and the wifi is simple to use. Good breakfast with plenty of choice (and great views).

Because of the horrendous weather conditions we were stranded in Scotland and unable to reach the hotel until December 31st, a day late, but we received a wonderful welcome when we did arrive. We were issued with our... More

I booked to stay here 2 nights for Santas Kingdom, this event in itself was good and my children aged 8 and 5 enjoyed it. We had the buffet included which was just ok and had run out of some food at 6pm, although the hotel does have a restaurant that we had planned to eat in the second evening.... More

4th year taking the kids to Santa's kingdom. Flawless check-in. We arrived too early so room wasn't ready but we did all the paperwork and retreated to our pre-booked table at the Sunday Carvery. (This is amazing by the way and I highly recommend). Rooms are great, spacious, clean and you can be lucky to get a sea view. My... More
