The welcoming helpful staff and the really comfy bed more than made up for the slightly dated decor. My expectations of the place were exceeded & I'd recommend it as a value for money stop over in a beautiful location

Great spot for traditional, homely meals at a reasonable price. Portions are generous and well presented. Service is always quick. Staff are all lovely and very attentive. Cosy atmosphere especially if your lucky enough to get a table by the fire. Perfect on a cold winters night!

Good sound meal here if a little skimpy on the portion sizes though food was sound. Bit of a old style establishment with dated bar area and staff lurking around the bar area which was a little unsettling however friendly enough bunch especially the one guy who could rattle off the numerous choices of menu like a machine gun !...

This is a nice stopping point on a drive round The Antrim Coast. The approachable, welcoming Dave "Boy" McAuley is often toiling away in the restaurant and is a very down to earth and conversational. The view from the restaurant, over The North Channel, is glorious on a warm, sunny, clear day. Good selection of dishes on the menu, and... More

I have had the pleasure of staying in this hotel twice over the past number of years whilst attending events in the locality. On both occasions, the staff could not have been more helpful, going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. Great value for money also! A lovely place to stay

The food was first class, and overall the place has a lovely cosy atmosphere. Would certainly recommend for a short break or a visit for food. Thanks to everyone for a very... More

I visited here with a large party in June , having been a regular customer afew years ago I was looking forward to a return visit. What a let down, the hotel is grubby and dirty looking , the furniture completely mismatched but above all the main issue was the rude staff... One particular 'lady' middle aged with long hair..didn't... More
