Myself and my wife and 2 young children took a nights stay at the Inn on the Coast as part of a free nights stay from Stena Line. No catches, free nights holiday including breakfast. We booked knowing it was a 3 star and seen the reviews on here. We weren't really expecting that much but we were pleasantly surprised! The place looked nice and of course a great location for all things north coast. Our only comment is potentially the signage could be a little more upmarket as it was that kind of corrugated printed board. Car park was huge with plenty of room. Inside we were treated but a very friendly young receptionist who was most helpful and polite. Throughout our short stay we got a sense that the staff had been briefed to make sure they make guests feel assured they are there to make their stay enjoyable and it was very good to see.
Once checked in we were given a family room at the front of the hotel, perfect, the room was very large and clean. Basic, yes, but you only sleep in it! Bathroom was again clean and had all the things you needed. Yes the fan was noisy but didn't detract from using the thing :-)
Beds comfortable, the room was quite warm over night but not really an issue. Breakfast buffet was plentiful and Ulster fry was ok.
We did eat in restaurant in the evening, prices not bad although all side orders extra so I think it makes it look good value but your just getting a main meal.
We had the deep fried Camembert to start which was nice and I had the steak and Guinness pie which was plentiful and full of succulent meat. Wife had the polenta vegetarian option but wasn't as impressed but I liked it! All in all a tasty 7/10 I would say.
We would be happy to stay here again as it was clean and prices seemed reasonable. It's not high end class but its not low end rubbish!
