It's definitely been around for a while, with large rooms well furnished. The dining is quite good and the bar and sitting areas are lovely. We were here as part of a music tour, quite large, and they could accommodate all quite well.

Dorrian's was a step back in time. It's grandeur is tired. But, it was magnificent! The beds, blankets & pillows would be my only complaint. We loved the atmosphere, the fireplace lit in the evening.
