“Weekend Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

We stayed at the Cromore Halt at the end of February 2014 on a last minute 2 night weekend.we had never stayed in the Cromore Halt before and we got a cracking deal on a double room with breakfast.

Can I just say we had a fantastic stay , the staff where very welcoming and check in was a breeze on the Friday evening. We decided to try out the bistro for our evening meal on the Friday night and what great choice it was . Again the food the staff and service was as good if not better than some 4 and 5 star hotels we have stayed in previously.

The bedroom was a good size with all the amenities you would expect very clean and tidy.

The breakfast the next morning set us up for the day, we where able to pre order our cooked breakfast the night before and also choose a time , again the quality of the breakfast would put bigger hotel chain to shame.

We will definitely be returning soon and would Highly recommend the Cromore Halt on the North Coast

My husband and I recently stayed in this hotel and will definitely be back! Excellent location at roadside beside a petrol station and supermarket ( always handy for late night snacks). On entering admittedly we had to go look for a member of staff to book in, however, was helpful and friendly. The room was Very spacious and had everything we needed. I did remark on how clean everything was. The room was very comfortable and lovely and warm. Breakfast in the morning was also a pleasant experience, lovely restaurant area very cosy and tasty home cooked breakfast. Well worth the visit

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

We ate in the Bistro on a Saturday evening - party of 5. Decor is OK - but has an 'airport lounge' feel to it which makes for a not terribly good atmosphere. The food was OK - fish&chips with mushy peas and balsamic vinegar was good I thought and there weren't any adverse comments from the others in my party. Not that there were glowing reports either mind you. The worst aspect is you have to go to the counter near the door to order. There was quite a few staff there but only one girl taking orders and on a Saturday night where most tables were occupied this meant a severe backlog. I must have stood for a full 10 minutes to wait - I wouldn't have liked to be eating at the tables nearby, it wouldn't have been pleasant to have people standing beside you while you ate.

I really don't understand why they couldn't take orders at the tables or at the very least have more than one person able to take orders at the counter. This is pretty stupid and I doubt if we'll be rushing back (even though we live only a mile or so away). There is another well-known 'bistro' not too far away where you also have to order at the counter/bar - but the difference there is that they have lots of staff able to take your order and we've never had to wait there more than a minute or two.

It really did spoil the evening for us.

Dear MetalMikey,

Firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Our Bistro offers casual dining however I am very sorry that you had to wait so long to order. Thank you for bringing this to my attention and I will investigate the matter further. We also have a Restaurant which offers table service which some our diners would prefer.
We pride ourselves on our high standards of service and cuisine and unfortunately on this occasion they were not to your satisfaction. We value all feedback as it enables us to improve our service. I hope this will not discourage you from returning to the Cromore in the near future.

Kind Regards
Carol

My wife and I keep going back to this Inn; which would beat many a 4 star hotel for comfort, service and quality of food. The reception, restaurant and bar staff are all friendly efficient folk who care about their customers. Our room was spotless and well equipped ( TV, trouser press, hair dryer, safe and a great bathroom ( bath & shower ) The Inn's cooked breakfast is G8 2 ( ask for 'The works' & you will get a super start to your day )

I stayed at the Cromore Halt for three nights at the beginning of December. I received a warm welcome and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout my visit. My room (no 9) was spacious, warm and comfortable, with plenty of storage space. It was also spotlessly clean. There was a wide choice for breakfast and in particular the scrambled eggs and bacon were delicious. My only criticism is that the hair dryer wasn’t up to much and it would have been good to have a radio/alarm in the room, but these are minor observations in a most enjoyable visit.

Just returned from a 1 night stay in the Cromore with 3 small children. Very friendly staff throughout the hotel and the food was 1st class. If you want a quiet wee break away in the North Coast then is the hotel for you. Will definately go back.
