Beautiful location, very friendly staff, lovely breakfast and terrific value for money. We stayed in room 5 and it was really lovely, very comfortable and cosy. See my photos for evidence !! It was so good in fact that we have booked another stay!

I stayed here as a solo traveller and although the inside is a bit dated and a bit tacky in places it is clean and the staff are very friendly. This could be a plus or minus depending on your point of view but there is no TV or sky sports which was a bit of a let down. The...

We had a group of 7. We all ordered the set menu. Some mistakes were made but this was rectified to our satisfaction. The mains and desserts were great. We all enjoyed our food. The portions were generous. My friend bagged some of hers to take home as she over ordered. The manager and all the staff were friendly. We...

Seven of us visited for a light lunch. £44.20. There were two soup choices, burgers sandwiches and indeed a decent menu. The atmosphere is good and the staff pleasant. My latte was weak though my leak and potato soup excellent . Two of my family had burgers which they did not enjoy which was sad as presentation looked good. I'm...

We stayed here one night. The location was ideal, near Bushmills, Giant's Causeway, and other tourist attractions. The room and bathroom were enormous! Also spotless and very comfortable. It was dark outside when we arrived, so it was fun to wake up in the morning and find a sea view out our windows! Breakfast was hearty and delicious, and the...

This is our third time staying here and it gets better every time. We love it here. The food is always lovely and the staff bend over backwards to make sure your staff is always great. You room is comfortable and you have WiFi for each room. Bushmills distillery is a must see if you went a Dram or two.

Booked to stay here for one night, the location was easy to find with lovely sea views and awesome Pirate flags. The double room, named 'Ballintrae', was massive, with a double bed and single bed, a table with chair to admire the view, wardrobe, vanity table and amenities, and the water pressure in the bath/shower was so good! Towels and...
