Went for a family meal here with three generations and we all found something good on the menu. All the meals were well prepared and the warm service was really very friendly. Travel to and from the restaurant by ferry boat across Strangford lough just added to the quality of the evening. If you are in the neighborhood this is... More

My wife and I visited the Cuan Inn last Saturday for a quiet overnighter to get some peace and quiet and that is exactly what we got. From the moment we arrived the staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was very welcoming. The rooms were spacious, freshly decorated and well fitted out. The beds were very comfortable although the... More

This was our first experience of staying in the Cuan although we have dined there previously. The only negative was that we didn't stay longer-everything from the staff,the meals and the accommodation was absolutely faultless.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

The food was delicious, especially breakfast and the staff so attentive. We had three children with us aged 4-8 and they were made to feel so welcome and the owners daughter babysat for... More

Small and friendly. All the people we dealt with were just great. Clean and very adequate rooms, great service. It's not the Ritz, but I highly recommend it. Asked for iron and it was there in five minutes. Not my taste in pillows, but few are when traveling.

Both myself and my wife had a busy few weeks in work with me travelling all over Northern Ireland and Deborah signing off accounts. So I booked The Cuan mainly because of its location and its love for seafood. And boy, did it deliver!!!! We arrived around 2pm and were welcomed by Caroline who made us feel very welcome. She...

We visited here for the first time in years and hardly recognised the place, as always great service and fantastic food. Perfect for a family outing or gettogether. Well worth the visit we will be back

I've become a bit if a regular at this wonderful, relaxing bolt hole in the idllyic village of Strangford. Everything about this place can be depended upon, a rarity in this day and age. Cleanliness of the room, through to excellent WiFi, the Cuan delivers on all fronts. The food is second to none, with an imaginative international flavour whilst... More
