We stayed here end of August 2014 after trying to find somewhere last minute at 9pm because another hotel had double booked, when we phoned they were friendly, and very helpful! Only a short drive from Cairnryan it was very easy to find. We didn't get there until 2130 so the resutrant was finished which was the only upsetting thing... More

Stayed here for one night on the 18th June. Staff are very pleasant. Showed me where my room was. Had a nice meal at the night even though I had to leave a part of it as I'm only a light eater but really enjoyed it anyway. Room was lovely but the view wasn't absolutely perfect I was overlooking the... More

Pleasantly surprised at the quality and choice on the early bird menu, staff and locals friendly , toilets immaculate , dog friendly as well! Good value too, will definitely return, we have been eating in portpatrick on our visits to this area in campervan , but this place is far better, well worth the 20 min drive there.

This hotel/restaurant is in a lovely little village and is very tranquil. Had dinner with friends and the restaurant itself is very nice, service was good until the main course and I was almost finished my meal before the new potatoes were served. The girl said they forgot. Anyway the meal was very good and value for money. The staff... More

Stayed for three nights at the end of May 2014 as a couple with our dog. Room was spacious, clean, warm and comfortable. We ate at the hotel on all three nights of our stay and the food was very good. Ate in the bar area as we had our dog with us although we were able to leave the... More

Took two friends to Tigh na Mara for the early bird dinner on Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal - food was excellent quality and good portions - sometimes you find the early dinners scimp a bit on quantity but not here. Friendly staff and attentive service. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

I've eaten twice here lately and would definitely recommend it - the food is fabulous and the service is great without being stuffy. The staff are really friendly and there is a lovely relaxed atmosphere to the place.
