The hotel is beautiful not to mention the wonderful grounds and glorious views from the spa. Food is really superb. I ordered room service for my meal. They had met my order to the letter and were at my room in no time at all. An overall perfect break away.

I spent a really lovely morning in the Spa with my 2 daughters being treated to The Autumn Package! It was a most pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. We then spent a short time in the jacuzzi - again most enjoyable. Included in the package was lunch in The Lighthouse Lounge. I ordered Walter Ewing Smoked Salmon... More

I have just checked out of the Slieve Donard and already can't wait to go back! Guests have free access to spa facilities between 7am-10pm. I would highly recommend using the vitality pool later in the evening as you can lay back and watch a beautiful sunset over the Slieve Donard mountain. We stayed in an executive suite with a...

We had got married here in November 2014 and were very excited to be returning this November with our one year old to celebrate our anniversary. It was unfortunate that no complimentary upgrade or gesture was available despite making the receptionist aware of our celebration when booking, but this is understandable. Our room was lovely and spacious and a couple... More

We decided to treat ourselves considering the favourable exchange rate between the euro and the pound. So glad we did. We have stayed in many 4 star hotels and we often felt ripped off. Some charged us 8 euro to park the car for the night.Others wanting a euro for 10 minutes on a computer. None of that here.This one... More

My wife and I were married there in the spring and confirm that the venue is easily the best hotel in Southern Co. Down. As a venue you will not find a better balance of price, location and facilities. It benefits from beautiful views of the mountains and sea (with a private entrance to the beach). It has a spa...

We visited the Slieve Donard to celebrate an 80th Birthday. We have nothing but praise for the hotel staff. From the moment we checked in on the Tuesday until we left on the Friday we were given every attention.

Had another great night in the Slieve. Had a really relaxing couples retreat in the beautiful spa with my wife, followed by use of the pool area while we waited for check in.

We had the most amazing stay here. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Meal in the Oak Restaurant was superb. Spa was lovely - sitting in the warm jacuzzi overlooking the mountains of Mourne! What more could you want?
