We stayed at The Old Inn for 2 nights as part of a family trip. The food was absolutely fantastic and the staff are an absolute credit to the hotel. The reception, waiting and bar staff could not have been more helpful during our stay, especially the waiting staff. There was no wifi due to a technical issue and no... More

My wife and I visited the old inn last Saturday night for a night away having stayed on many occasions in the past and as always as soon as you are greeted by the log fire in reception and check in you feel like you are a world away. Having checked in we took a long walk through the country... More

My brother got married and rightfully chose this venue. It was charming and elegant and the staff were all excellent. The rooms that they provided for the ceremony and the meal after and in between were perfect. The food was first class and the bar service friendly. The rooms were beautiful and very comfortable and breakfast was second to none.

I've been here several times now but this is my first review. The building is adorable, low slung ceilings & beams. With a raging log fire in the reception area, it's so cosy. The restaurant food is first class, I had scallops followed by rack of lamb - cooked to perfection. Staff are very friendly but when it got busy... More

I used to go to the Crawfordsburn Inn regularly when I lived in Helen's Bay and I still do when visiting friends and family. Sadly, I have recently found the Old Inn to be going slightly downhill. What they've done is get it right for quite some time and become so popular that they are now starting to get a... More

Attended a family wedding at the Old Inn and couldn’t have asked for better venue, staff or food. Sean and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful from the moment we arrived on this special day. Everything was perfect including the lack of rain, although not 100% sure this was down to the staff but I wouldn’t have been surprised.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while attending a family wedding. Room was clean and well presented, great shower, only negative was the hard mattress, as someone who stays many nights in hotels this was one of the worst I have experienced, much prefer a bed with a pillow topper on the mattress. Food was good especially at the wedding meal,... More
