I have been a little bit disappointed on recent visits to the Slieve Donard Oak restaurant. It was always my local No 1 but recently we had a family meal there and it certainly was not up to the usual standard. Most of us had steaks and sadly a lot of the meat was not edible. Dessert choice was also poor. Come on S D. Get your act together and don't let the other local restaurants steel the show. That's what seems to be happening.

The location of the hotel overlooking the sea and with the imposing Mournes in the distance is really impressive. However in places the hotel looked a bit tired. The Spa again has amazing views but not the greatest Spa we have visited . But all in all we enjoyed our stay .

We called for coffee and expected to stay for a glass of wine. Asked for coffee for two and a scone only to be told that they didn't do any food. The bar manager was dismissive and offered us a display of tray bakes which were curled up. We refused and noted that they were later offered to two other customers. We weren't allowed to open a tab. Had to pay for coffee and then again after we ordered our wine - so we went elsewhere where we could expect more customer friendly reception. We were made to feel uncomfortable and an unwelcome intrusion by the lounge manager
