After settling in, we were provided with...

Had a fantastic weekend at the Olde Forge hotel and restaurant. Owners Philip and Nicky were so helpful and accommodating. Rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Food was amazing. Couldn't have wished for a better venue to catch up and enjoy Christmas festivities with friends. Will definitely be going back!

We really lucked out booking the Old Forge Hotel as it was a lovely stay and the hosts, Philip and Nicky, were so pleasant and helpful. Upon our arrival, after traveling overnight, Philip prepared the most delectable assortment of sandwiches. Our room was clean and the breakfast was abundant and delicious.

Read the terms and conditions carefully. I have had to cancel 11 days before visit because dog has kennel cough and have been charged 50%. Also I was told there was no way my dog could eat with me however I have read on here that someone was allowed to have their dog with them.

Phillip and Nicky were very friendly and helpful with local advice about the best places to visit. The room was spotlessly clean and well presented. We ate in one night and the food was excellent. The only drawback was the noise from the road in the night; but we were there at a very hot time and needed all the...
