I stayed here for one night on 09/03/17, I was attending a function in the town. Parking outside on the main street was fine, you can stay to mid day without charge. The hotel also has it's own parking. The gentleman on reception was wert welcoming, he took me to my room via the lift and confirmed a late return...

We stayed here for a weekend while we climbed the Slieve Donard and explore the area. The staff were polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were spacious. Has an elevator which was much needed after mountain hiking. No complaints and would recommend.

I stayed overnight here on New Years Eve after attending a wedding at the Slieve Donard Hotel, and was relieved at how reasonable the price was. When I arrived, staff made me feel so welcome, and helped me up to my room with all my stuff. They couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, and honestly were an absolute delight...

I stayed here back in July while walking around Ireland in aid of Pieta House, and the Donard Hotel graciously offered to put me up for the night. I was warmly welcomed by Pat and Natasha, who really couldn't do enough for you. I had a fantastic sleep in a comfortable room and the breakfast the next day was delicious....

I traveled to Newcastle for a Van Morrison concert in July. I am glad I was unable to get a room at the Slieve Donard to afford me the experience of the very homey Donard Hotel. We were greeted and shown to our room by Pat, pretty sure that was really his name. No, it is not a sparkling new,...

We stayed here for a hen party in August and it couldn't have been better. We had a great time, everything went smoothly, (we were a group of 20!) and nothing was too much trouble- every request was handled in a friendly and professional way. We had dinner in a private section of the restaurant which made the event very...

The man at the desk pat was great and the room was spacious if a bit worn. The bed was fine with a smaller bed next. I think we may have been the only people staying there (it was a Monday night) so I believe we got a choice room. As I said in the title, this place is a...

Olde world hotel right in the heart of town, very friendly and helpful staff, could not do enough for us, spacious room which was spotlessly clean with great views of the mountains of Mourne, breakfast was lovely, cooked to order and plenty of it, the bar was busy and there seems to be entertainment most weekends.
