The Whistledown Hotel has had a colourful make over and improved the choice in the sleepy seaside town of Warrenpoint. I attended a family gathering at the Hotel and the service was impressive. Only criticism was upon arrival there was no clear directions to the reception as you walk in to a busy front Bar. The service was above average and the menu good. There was free parking on the seafront and side streets...
The single room I was given was a pleasant surprise as it was a double at a great rate. The bathroom was well thought out and modern. The bed was very comfortable and the furnishings practical, though the crushed velvet look was not my cup of tea. The only criticism I have of the bathroom was the shower (sorry three of them), you would need a diploma to figure out how to use the shower plumbing in full. Sadly I only managed two shower heads and gave up trying to get the main shower head to work.
The two Bars are impressive and friendly; the main one is called Finn’s Bar with a late License. When leaving I noticed a ground floor formal room for weddings, etc., which could seat 100+
The hot breakfast and buffet was delicious and prompt, yet I fail to see why this and other hotels skimp on the breakfast sausage – please someone tell these people to use a local quality meat!
There was a great kid’s park to the left of the Hotel if you have the misfortune to have ‘em.
The sea view at breakfast was beautiful, there is a nice promenade and walk if you want to escape.
