Stayed at the Golf Links House for one night (24th August) as I was attending a Wedding Reception that night at the Slieve Donard Hotel, where I feel even with discounted rates the Slieve would have been overly priced. The cost of the room for myself and wife was £60 and included Breakfast. The lady we dealt with on our arrival was the same lady as I had spoken to on the phone to make the booking a couple of weeks earlier, and she was again helpful and pleasant.
The room was clean and the window backed on to one of the local Golf Courses (the Mourne I think). Although my wife didn't partake in the breakfast, I certainly did as I needed to "line my stomach" for a second Wedding on the Saturday (attending Weddings in Ireland on consecutive days is not recommended!!). The staff at breakfast were pleasant and helpful and the food on offer was a choice of Cereal, Fresh Fruit Salad etc., followed by either Tea or Coffee, Fruit Juice and the good old "Irish Fry".
Although our stay was only for one night, we would have no hesitation in either recommending the Golf Links or staying there again.Although other reviewers have complained about the distance from the town, we found the price of a Taxi to be only £3.50 to £4.00 and that was at 1.30 on the Saturday morning.
As regards their comments about an agressive old lady (being of Irish origin myself), I didn't find this to be the case. I think perhaps it is the accent which may to some people sound sharp and as regards being asked too many questions, I feel this is just trying to be friendly - well at least that is my opinion.
Thank You to the Owners and Staff and hopefully see you again in the future!! RayJ
