Just back from an amazing weekend at Arnolds where we were looked after brilliantly. Staff and management couldn't do enough and made our anniversary weekend so wonderful. Thank you so much. Food was wonderful and our room, which we were upgraded to had fantastic views.

Eaten in them all in dunfanaghy, and still keep coming back to Arnolds. The staff are GREAT. Anything not up to scratch,(rare),sorted immediately. Only one problem out of 20-30 visits- meal arrived promptly; extras didn't. They were very busy at the time.wont stop me going back. Whiskey fly bar great for watching sport of your choice as you eat. Colin

Has to be the most friendly helpful receptionist ever . breakfast was ordinary, no a smile from the face of the staff, coffee awful. Great location hotel apart from the smell of horse manure hotel night security man most unprofessional and smart in not a nice way,, Would have to think hard before I would book again ,.
