Very good breakfast and relaxing in the evening

Very good buffet breakfast with a wide selection of food. Nice view on the seashore. We saw Dolphins while having breakfast. Relaxing in the evening for a beer and a live football match.

Wendy was lovely and very friendly, a kind face after a traumatic night! We had the night from hell round the corner in Oakdene B&B and we couldn't get out quickly enough. Wendy, you don't know how safe you made us fell when we trundled in for breakfast yesterday morning before getting the first train out of Portrush. Thanks!

Great selection including breads, cereals and cooked breakfast with plenty of tea, coffee and fruit juices. Very satisfied, kept me full all day!! Service was also excellent, my waitress Wendy couldn't do enough to ensure I had everything I needed. Nice... More

Nothing was raw, it's was cooked ok...that's it really! On the negative....none of the lunches came with a true side. The Caesar was essentially a grilled chicken fillet burger... More
