A fair bit of effort has gone into creating this hotel and our room (Comber) was on the ground floor and was really a junior suite. The effect was two tone - either white or dark stained wood/ furnishings with deep red leather sofa and patterned curtains, comfortable but no style. The bathroom was better but had an interesting feature in that the loo rocked which was a bit disconcerting, good towels and toiletries but at this price, £190 b&b, they should be. The bar at the front of the building ( to the main street) had a variety of nooks and crannies and small rooms some with lit fires and was rather more interesting than either the restaurant reception or the main reception. Here again the decorative objects seemed rather an afterthought being empty wine or dummy Bushmills whisky bottles. Interesting wine list with some heavy weight bottles but had to send the house Sauvignon Blanc back as it was completely vapid and virtually tasteless - i wonder if they had mistakenly given me Pinot Gris. The menu was ok interesting and ours was well executed - the trio of pork excellent, breakfast also good. The service throughout was charming and a briefly forgotten order well managed. There are architecturally interesting public areas upstairs called the loft but the interior decor was as dull and boring as it was downstairs -again an investment is needed as it is not quite ye olde worlde hunting prints and horse brasses but nearly! The hotel seems to be selling out to golf tourists of a particular trans Alantic variety but I suppose business is business. In summary the hotel has charm, the staff are excellent but the tired boring decor needs revitalizing.
