This was my first time staying at the Slieve Donard and I wasn't disappointed! The receptionists at the pool area were friendly and took us up straight away to the receptionist on the spa who was very welcoming. She gave us a tour of the facilities on offer - wow! I had a massage by Catherine and she made me... More

The staff were great especially Angela on the reception, she was a great help to us and got things sorted out quickly when we had to cancel one of the rooms we had booked. All... More

We have stayed at the Slieve Donard numerous times over the past eight years, it now feels like a home from home. The staff are so attentive. The food excellent. The hotel and the surroundings are just out of this world, so relaxing.

Unfortunately we visited this café yesterday (Saturday 22nd Oct) and it was very full. It had stunning views, however, we were told we had to wait 25 minutes for food as there was a large table needed to be served first. All tables following us got told this as well. We were there with my 92 year old Mother for... More

We are regular visitors to the Slieve Donard and have always had a wonderful time. We love to eat in the restaurant, however, on the first night of our stay the restaurant was busy and we tended to be overlooked by the restaurant staff. I had ordered a steak medium rare annd it arrived very well done. It as so... More

I rang hastings central reservations and spoke to a girl called Susie, what a lovely telephone manner she had I was put at ease right away. I explained that it was a birthday surprise for my wife, and she assured me that she would let the Slieve Donard know. When we arrived at the reception we were told that we... More

A nice hotel let down by their bar prices. I really struggle with hotel bar prices in general and I stay in many on business, but some are just plain greedy (a small bottle of diet coke used for a mixer was £3.20!!!!) Two drinks : small glass of house white wine with a lemonade mixer and a Smirnoff vodka... More

Had an amazing day at the spa. All the staff were so friendly and made us feel really welcome. We had a lovely lunch downstairs between treatments and the service was excellent. Everywhere is spotlessly clean - will definitely be coming back here.

My husband and I booked into the spa for treatments on our 1st day of a 2 night stay at the hotel. Upon arrival at the 2nd floor spa reception we were greeted by a very warm and welcoming lady, whose name escapes me. She explained the procedures etc and showed my husband around the male section then me around... More
