“Good Location”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Great hotel with helpful staff, large, clean rooms and the 'full Irish' was very good indeed. Close enough to Portrush to be sociable but far enough out to be relaxing. Coastal location and own car-park winning features.

Stayed for one night in August. Friendly girl on reception and great size family room which was clean. I traveled with another adult and 4 children. The weather was great so we all headed out for the day. We arrived back at 9.02pm to have tea but were told at reception that the kitchen had stopped serving (at 9pm) and would not make any exceptions or effort to accommodate us for something to eat. Having four young children with us (and being residents) it was disappointing and not very good customer service to send us out to look elsewhere.
To end on a good note, breakfast was good with variety and the location was great.

Stayed here 3 nights as wanted to visit north coast. Our room was a good size, clean, comfortable but rather on the dark side. No fresh fruit at breakfast but the cooked course was good. Evening meals were simple but good and excellent value. The location was perfect for what we wanted and staff friendly.

Room Tip: We had sideways view of sea which was ok and quiet

i stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with my family and it was a disappointing experience. The booking and check in staff were excellent but housekeeping, breakfast and the restaurant didn't live up to my expectations. Despite its excellent location we will not be staying there again.

Warm welcoming and friendly staff. Stayed in a very comfortable clean room with sea view. While restaurant menu is limited, the food was excellent. My friend and I both ordered steaks which were cooked exactly as requested. The freshly cooked full irish breakfast was delicious and set us up for the day ahead.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room

Does it get any better than that? Large comfortable rooms with most of the amenities with access to most of the north Antrim coast attractions like the Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, golf, walking, beaches and set along the beauty of the coast, between the lovely villages of Portrush and Portstewart. Bed and breakfast rooms were excellent value based on others in the area, but with most inn services on site, including fireside restaurant with a moderately priced menu with great choices and specials. Food was excellent as was the service. The staff were very friendly and helpful, offering lots of advice on places to visit. A great choice for couples and families travelling or staying on Northern Ireland's north coast
