Was here as a group treating a friend for her 50th birthday. We had decided to have afternoon tea style for mid morning. The staff at the Old Inn accommodated us in the Library. The decor was beautiful. It was very peaceful and private We were treated to a feast.The dainty sandwiches were really tasty. All the little treats/ scones/... More

I spent an enjoyable night with dinner at one of our favourite small hotels and restaurant in the World . I first had a drink in this pub built in 1614 over 50 years ago as it was walking distance to where I lived. Unfortunately we picked a bad day to arrive from Hong Kong after a 6000 mile journey....... More

When in Northern Ireland 40 Years ago I used to visit the Old Inn for meals. It still has the great atmosphere welcome , good friendly service and really good food. We found the bar area more relaxing and the menu is the same as the restaurant. Well presented and tasty food. Very friendly service. Had a great dinner. Can... More

Dear 186Richard, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. We are delighted to see that chill in the air outside was more than compensated by the team and the satisfaction of the food. Thank you also for your kind words on the great atmosphere and welcome you received. We look forward to welcoming you again... More

I have stayed here in the past and have just had the opportunity to update that experience, and have done so twice in the past month. What a gem beautiful, being able to walk in to a world and leave the rest behind, the staff play a major role in this, so helpful and attentive but in no way intrusive.... More

Booked a one night stay with breakfast on a special voucher deal for my husbands birthday on June 14 and I never once was made to feel we were on a cheap deal. Our junior suite was absolutely charming and exceeded our expectations -the rose petals on the beautiful four poster bed, chocolates and a huge birthday balloon was an... More

Dear sncj, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. We were delighted that you enjoyed your recent short stay so much. There is a lot of speculation as to how some hotels treat customers who have come to the hotel via an online deal and are sometimes made to feel less 'welcome'. We are very... More

Excellent service throughout the inn which is spread out above Crawfordsburn country park and glen. Free off road parking. Romantic touches in room were very good. Four poster a bit cramped but not much of a problem. Road noise on Monday morning a bit of a problem. Food was excellent and service could not be faulted.

This inn was charming with a welcoming fire burning daily in the reception area, great and friendly staff, and with most interesting decor. My husband and I stayed in the "Wee Jimmie" room which had a queen four poster bed and beautiful, modern bath. This room was very quiet. Our 2 children stayed down the hall in "Bernie's" which had...

Last visit back to NI we stayed at the Clandeboye Lodge a few miles away which was fantastic but the location isn't great and this time opted to stay at the Old Inn, given the location.

We found this gem through TripAdvisor and booked through booking.com and were rewarded with the Mount Steward suite. It was beautiful, more... it was luxurious. With a late check-in, we went straight to our room but upon entering we had to take pictures. The day we left we had a full breakfast and then went exploring inside the Old Inn,... More
