'Old Inn' sums up a building which is the result of haphazard additions to the original structure. You need a training program to find the way from the lobby to the restaurant!

Rooms very clean and charming with canopied bed and creaking floor plus great bathroom, one of the best I've seen in an old hotel. On the other hand, expect some noise if you're in the front of the building which is right on a country road.

Our package included a dinner and the menu made it look mouthwatering. The result, though, was a disappointment with steaks a little too small and tough and ice cream that had spent too long in the freezer.

Friendly Ulster and eastern European staff were quick to act when asked to change a room, but could not come up with a softer pillow (these little details can make all the difference).

One other word about Northern Ireland: unlike the Republic, which has had a blanket 'no smoking in public places' law for a couple of years, this part of Ireland is still a smokers' paradise. The law changes next year. Roll on Summer 2007!

We stayed at the inn last week and loved our quaint room with low ceiling and high bed. It had a nice bathroom although I think the bath was too small for the price of the room. Shockingly, the hotel also charges £15 for a child's cot. We travel quite a bit and have never before come across this charge. The hotel is really charming and the day we arrived thatchers were repairing the roof, which was interesting to watch. On the major downside though the woman responsible for serving food in the bar was extremely rude. i listened to her chastise two separate families for daring to try to fund a table for themselves. She asked if they had not seen the sign asking for people to wait to be seated. (This sign was out of eye shot on entering the bar). It was awful to watch her embarassing people and I am sure I am not the first to notice her attitude. Later in the day I was ignored by her for at least 20 minutes while waiting for service. I did not complain to the manager because I did not want to dampen the occasion for us. On the other hand, I could not praise the staff in the restaurant and those behind the bar highly enough.
