“Nice place but very noisy”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights in early October. The room was nice, clean and very spacious. We couldn't get the heater to work the first night so we had to call reception and have someone come to the room. First night 2 young children were running up and down the halls until 11pm. The next night there was a noisy group in the bar downstairs and the noise travelled to our room on the upper floor. Not the hotels fault but very annoying nonetheless. The breakfast was good but the service on the second day was very poor. On our first day we had some problems with Stena Line related to our trip back to Scotland. The lady in reception was very, very, helpful.

Room Tip: We asked for a twin room but were given a room with 2 double beds. Room was very spacious and clean.

We stayed at the Cromore Halt for 2 nights in September on a midweek visit to the spectacular Antrim Coast.

From the outside the building looks a bit unexciting and it is a good mile or so from the seafront; but the rooms are clean and efficient, the wifi worked well in our room, the bed was very comfortable and the welcome, both in advance and when we arrived was very warm and welcoming right through until we left 2 morning later, so what more can you ask for?

The main restaurant was not open as we were visiting midweek, but to be honest we preferred the casual relaxed atmosphere of the bistro restaurant and happily spent a few hours each evening drinking, chatting and enjoying the food which we found to be very good with some unique items on the menu that were clearly freshly cooked to order.

Prices were very reasonable both for the room on B&B rates and the dinner and drinks that we paid for separately on both nights. My cousin from Northern Ireland recommended this place to us and was keen to know our feedback - a big thumbs up!

We'd happily return if we were to visit this lovely area again...

Room Tip: Beds are a normal 4ft 6 double, so if you are used to a bigger bed, ask for a Double with a Single...

A group of us stayed the night last night, and had an overall positive experience.
The good...
The room was basic and clean. The hotel and restaurant staff were very nice. No bar, but you can order drinks and have them delivered to a lounge type room with comfy chairs and couches. This was good for our group, as we could have good conversation and all sit together. Most everyone enjoyed their dinner and breakfast.
Room for improvement...
Internet didn't work in our room...had to go to the lounge.
I had scampie for dinner and didn't really enjoy it. Batter on them was much too heavy and greasy. The sea bass was excellent some of the others said. We has one dinner that was brought first and her side was kind of forgotten, so when the side came, her dinner was cold. For breakfast, mine was forgotten...so it came late and the eggs weren't cooked (I guess the were in a hurry to get it out). I didn't bother complaining. There were 11 of us, so you can expect some problems. Our room and bathroom doors were very tight and noisy.
All in all the negatives weren't that big a deal. The location is a 2 min drive to the seafront.... Generally too far to walk.
I would stay there again.

An extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean hotel. This was my second stay and staff reinforced my opinion of their customer service, which is excellent. I would highly recommend a stay at the Cromore Halt food too is very good. Breakfast will keep you going all day and if you decide to have dinner their, the menu is varied and of a high standard whilst affordable.

We stayed at this inn for three nights in Sept.. The staff were very helpful at all times and breakfasts were something special. The rooms were very clean although double beds very small.Good location with a 15 min walk into Portstewart

Room Tip: Double Beds are small if you are over 6ft.
