“Good restaurant”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I enjoyed the place mainly because of the food and bar. Rooms are clean and basic but a little cold for us. Bathroom was nice and clean and the staff was very hospitable. The bar food was GREAT!!! The bread pudding was the best we've ever experienced. Enjoyed our stay here!

This was an easy choice for us as it was the one of a select few places that let pets stay (small dog). It is dark and dank and the bedclothes and carpet had stains everywhere. They could make more of an effort to keep it cleaner and get new decor and bedclothes as the rooms are quite spacious and nicely laid out. I enjoyed the Ulster fry for breakfast, if they put as much work into the rest of the place as the breakfast they would be going in the right direction. Staff very friendly and if you have kids it is very near a railway line and the main road. Wouldn't rush back unless the reviews got better

Thank you for your review. I notice from your review that you stayed in October 2011 nearly a year ago. Inn on the Coast has been under new management since May 2012 and the hotel refurbished with new beds in every room and cleanliness is extremely important to us. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Inn on the Coast.

Stayed here 2 nights for the air show with 3 kids aged 6, 7 and 9. Great spot, can walk to Portrush or Portstewart (we did both). Rooms are fine, basic, clean, good value for money. The outside looks a lot worse than the inside. Bar food is great!!!!! Ate here 3 times in 2 days because of value, location and quality. Games room off the bar/restaurant made meals enjoyable. Staff very friendly and made us feel welcome. Would recommend to friends.

On arrival at the hotel a very warm welcome from the reception staff awaits. Indeed all of the staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful.
The room was spacious but the fact that it was not possible to open a window made it feel a bit uncomfortable. The breakfast was top class and the bar / dining area was very cosy and appealing.
There was music advertised but did not happen as the musician failed to turn up. I was a bit disappointed on the second day to discover the bathroom had not been cleaned properly and that there was no milk left with the tea and coffee facilities. One other feature that was off putting was that a trolley of dirty laundry was left in the stairwell for the duration of the stay.
While this review contains a number of negatives I feel that more attention to detail would ensure very positive reviews in the future

I had a very nice stay with my family. The reception staff was very friendly and we found the room to be very spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was very good on our first day, but the second day seemed to be a bit overwhelming for the staff, with missing items at the buffet (no yogurt) and the milk for the tea curdled. The restaurant was very good in the evening and the game room much appreciated. The location was nice enough, walkable to the centre of Portrush.

Stayed for a long weekend. Room not clean. Stained bedlinen! Out of date decor. Furniture from the eighties. Breakfast was awful. Hotel needs a revamp. Can't really use the word hotel to describe. Stay somewhere else!
