Four of us arrived and were seated promptly. Friendly staff sorted out drinks and took our meal order. The menu was one of those rare articles in that we all agreed that we would order any of the main courses as they all sounded so good. We were not disappointed when they arrived! The desserts were also fantastic. The place... More

Stayed here in June with our son & grandson, who were visiting from USA. We had a super time, excellent food, friendly staff, nice rooms. The nearby Lough is most attractive, Strangford is a pleasant village and everyone made us feel so welcome.

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

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.

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
