“Views are fantastic; room equally good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here recently for a wedding. The views in the function suite out to the water are awesome; there is a paved area that is great for group photos!

My room was spacious and nicely decorated. Large comfy bed with a decent sized bathroom. Staff were courteous and asked if I needed help with luggage.

The only reason my review isn't better is the "wifi" which is detailed as being available throughout the bedrooms. I was able to use wifi at the front desk, but has obvious restrictions. If you want a weekend disconnected from the world, this hotel is perfect. Fantastic views and great accommodations.

Stayed May 2013, traveled with friends

Stayed here recently and it was OK. The room was clean enough with ample space although the whole decor of the hotel is a little tired and very early 90s. A modern day revamp would be a good idea. Also next morning in the breakfast room when I asked to sit at a window-side table, I was informed the table was for lunch.(???) Very strange indeed. Instead we were shown to a table behind a pillar with restricted seaview! For the price, I would prefer to stay down the road at Atlantic Hotel or the Ramada.

We had a small family get together here, staying mid-week when the hotel was quiet and very few guests. Rooms were lovely - clean and comfortable. Not all the rooms have sea views, but those that do are wonderful. The dining experience was quiet, the food good, and the views were lovely. All the staff we encountered - front desk and waiters - were very friendly. Price was reasonable.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view

We have just come home from a wonderful short break in the Royal Court Hotel.We were there with my mother who has mobility difficulties and needed to use the stair lift.She was delighted with the attention and kindness all the staff showed her-nothing was too much trouble, and everyone was so friendly.This is so important when your independence is restricted, and opportunities for holidays are limited.We had beautiful meals in the dining room, while enjoying the stunning views. Our bedrooms had everything we could possibly need, with balconies and views that would be hard to better anywhere! We look forward to many more stays here.

Room Tip: Well worth the small supplement for a room with a balcony.

We have just came home from a wonderful stay in the Royal Court Hotel last week. From our arrival on Thursday until we checked out on Saturday the staff could not have been more helpful. The food was excellent and what views out of the dinning room window. We would recommend a stay there at any time.

Now called Royal Court Hotel I was last there about 1948 before the tram from Portrush to Giant's Causeway was closed! The hotel has been extended but still only has 18 rooms (we had 119!); there is a very large function suite and large car park so watch out for weddings as rooms will be difficult to get and the hotel is likely to be noisey. Bedrooms are all en suite, well equipted and decorated.
Away from functions the dining room provides good food, especially breakfasts and the large bar area is split up and comfortable; all with good service.
The hotel stands above White Rocks with nice beach at the east end of Royal Portrush golf course. Nearby is Giant's Causeway with a splendid visitors centre (National Trust) also Bushmills whiskey distillery - both well worth visiting (both under £10 each)
Yes we will go back to the Royal Court Hotel making sure to book in advance.

Room Tip: Book in advance - 119 is to the back overlooking a car park. Rooms at the front will have superb vie...
