“Great place for a wedding”
Reviewed November 1, 2013 via mobile

Stayed 2 nights with my son for our friends wedding, food great, rooms great, service great. Receptionist Deborah was great, spent time answering my sons numerous questions and gave him maps and leaflets of the local area. All our meals were excellent and waitress helpful in getting ice lollies for the children.

Stayed here a few times - Pleasant location, friendly staff, spacious comfortable and clean rooms. Restaurant food is good and very reasonably priced but could do with varying the menu occasionally especially the vegetarian courses.

Room Tip: Rooms in annexe are best

Thank you for posting your review on Tripadvisor, I am delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Our set menus have limited vegetarian dishes but unfortunately I cannot ascertain which restaurant or indeed which menu you dined from. Next time you visit please ask a member of staff for other vegetarian options and we will do our best to meet your request. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

We were welcomed by reception and pleased to receive a 'special offer' for a Sunday night. The room was large and comfortable and had everything we needed. The bathroom was also large and had a warm, powerful shower and bath. Breakfast in the morning was surprisingly good with fantastic choice. The only thing that let the hotel down was the service in the adjoining Bistro. They started well, but by the time our dinner had been served they completely lost interest in us. I thought we were going to have to carry our own plates to the kitchen and help ourselves to dessert. Getting the bill was equally painful!

I stayed here for two nights here while I was working in Northern Ireland including one day at a small exhibition held at the hotel. I should say that I didn't eat at the hotel except for breakfast during my stay so cannot comment on the restaurant from my own experience. I can, however, say that on both days the place was packed with lunch time diners many of which were local. That in my mind suggests that the kitchen produces either good quality, good price or both.
Now for the things I saw/tried myself. Breakfast was a very relaxed affair with truly good service and very good if not outstanding food. The staff throughout were very efficient and pleasant so would give high marks there. The layout is a little strange. To get to my room from reception I had to walk through the bistro, past diners and out into a corridor to my room. Ok but not ideal, particularly if I was dining. The room it's self was large enough and all of the amenities you would expect but again good but not outstanding.
The biggest plus for me is the location. I love Coleraine anyway so that is a good start but no distance to PortRush and Royal PortRush golf course. Easy striking distance to the Bushmills Distillery and the Giants Causeway along with some stunning coastal areas.
Got business or the tourist it is a place to consider.

I would much appreciate if the young waitress whose name badge states 'Shannon' could get the sweet orders right first time not third!!! Other staff were very welcoming and the service was satisfactory

I've never stayed here but I did eat here with a group of friends and had the chance to try the new Tea Time Treats menu. We all chose the main course and dessert option and we were not disappointed with the food we were served. I'll be back to try some of the other choices on offer......maybe not the mussels with the salmon though!!
