My partner and I were up in Portrush for the airshow on Saturday. I had tried to book accommodation weeks ago but being a busy weekend, everywhere was fully booked. When we were there we decided to take a walk and see perhaps if there were any last minute vacancies. The Oakdene was the first place we came to and we were lucky as they had had a cancellation. The guy on reception was very friendly and pointed out that the room was at the back of the building and up a lot of stairs. We didnt mind as we just wanted a clean bed to sleep in - we weren't going to be sitting in the room all evening looking out the window. The room was small and basic but it was cosy and clean, with tea/coffee making facilities and ensuite shower-room. We had a good breakfast to set us up the next morning so it was everything we needed. I personally prefer to pay £50 for b&b for the 2 of us here rather than spending a fortune in a posh hotel. If you want the latest fancy furniture and modern decor then pay more and go elsewhere. If you want a clean bed to sleep in with friendly, accommodating staff then I must recommend Oakdene. I know that the next time I plan to stay in Portrush, I will be phoning here to book a room.
