Upon arrival I was very shocked. Not much (at all) to look at and I was really worried. I usually go for super modern hotels or boutique hotels with a luxurious feel to them. Lets just say Hunters is unique. My room was okay...quite shabby but lovely big bed. My room was number 11 fyi. I was surprised to see... More

I recently got treated to a meal in Hunters Hotel and it was a pure pleasure. On arrival at the understated former coach house, parking in the courtyard car park gives you a real feel for the place although walking across the gravel in high heels is only fun for the onlookers! A very warm welcome awaited us inside in... More

My husband and I, together with another couple, stayed at this property recently for 3 nights. Initally when we arrived and saw the entrance lobby I became little concerned as it looked somewhat "tired", however the very thing that concerned me initally is what made this property quaint throughout the visit. If you're looking for old world charm than Hunters... More

Called in on spec with an infant (5 months old) for lunch and felt about as welcome as a fart in a space suit (to quote Billy Connolly). Charmless staff and absolutely no baby changing facilities. Arcane system where you order food before being brought into the dining room having been sold drinks in the bar area. No one offered... More

A lovely, old world hotel which is outstanding. I would definitely go back. The room was excellent. If you are interested in gardens Mount Usher is only a mile away and is well worth a visit. The breakfast was well presented.

This is the real deal. A charming old coaching inn with uneven ancient squeaky floor boards, chintz fabrics and odd shaped small and old fashioned rooms. It is genuinely like something trapped in time. It feels like it should feature in an Agatha Christie story and that it would be entirely appropriate if it were populated by doubty elderly ladies...

The hotel has been in the family for several hundred years. They take a pride in preserving the superb atmosphere from days in the past when pride, professionalism, and personal attention were held in high esteem as a natural part of the establishment. You can feel it from the moment you walk through the door and meet members of the... More

I have been coming here for years and I love it now just as I loved it the first time I visited in the 80's. The great thing is it hasn't changed. It has unique charm and personality. It takes hard work to achieve this result and is far from neglected as I have read a couple of times below.... More

For years I have loved going to Hunters, it is a true family run hotel, and has been in the same family for five generations. Both management and staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is to much trouble for them. How to describe Hunters? Peaceful and atmospheric certainly but there is also that special something that comes from being... More

I love Hunters, just do not get there enough. Not for you if you need the buzz and slick service of a city hotel. Hunters is quirky, comfy and a place to relax in. Food great, bar well stocked and service old world quality .. But slow. However that's not an issue as you have mellowed just by being there.... More
