Arnold's Hotel is just a lovely family orientated hotel sitting less than a stone’s throw from the Atlantic. Our twin room allowed superb views of the rise and fall of the tide in Sheephaven Bay fed in by the wild Atlantic Ocean. We could hear the breakers crashing onto Dunfanaghy beach. Nine of us were booked in for a walking... More

Staff were a real credit to the hotel, fantastic in every way. Especially the breakfast staff! Very easy to get to the beach, nice welcoming bar and comfortable bed. Rooms were a little on the small side but aside from that a great time! Would definitely recommend.

Walking back to the bottom of the street checking out the menus to suit a variety of tastes we came across the Whisky Bar. The lunch menu was simple but appealing. We were quickly seated and served a great pint of Guinness! I ordered... More

Spent a really enjoyable night in Arnold's last Fri. Weather was wet cold and v windy - Arnold's was so cosy and welcoming with the big peat fire in reception and the comfy red seats. The staff are friendly and very helpful. We will certainly come back again for a winter break.

On arrival we found that although the fabric of the hotel had been upgraded, the welcome at reception remained warm and helpful, just as it had been... More
