The Nesbitt Arms is situated in the centre of Ardara town, with no parking and you have to park on the street (if you get a space).
Breakfast was pretty average, and being a vegetarian, I was surprised they didn’t even serve mushrooms. The bar menu also lacked vegetarian options and costly for bar food.
The room we were given (triple room) was in the attic and of a really poor standard with many damages. The best word to describe our room was “Freezing”. When we complained, we were given a electric radiator. I have never experienced cold like it. We had very little sleep and creaking floor boards seems very strange in this day and age. The curtains even moved with the draught coming in the really old windows. The smell of smoke in the corridors was awful, with other guests obviously smoking in their rooms.
Would not stay here again.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for you recent review of our hotel. I am disappointed that we did not live up to your expectations during your visit. This was the weekend of our biggest festival in Ardara. We are sorry that our heritage rooms were not to your satisfaction. Coming to the end of the season, hotels spend winter months updating rooms for the following season to come. Our hotel is totally non smoking and we do our very best to ensure that this is adhered to.

Regarding our vegetarian options, we have two to three options available daily as it states on the menu to ask your server to advise you of our options for the day. We do not state the exact vegetarian option on the menu as chef likes to vary these from day to day depending on what is in season.

Upon investigation of your review, we felt that we rectified your issues on the spot and you seemed very happy indeed upon checkout following a modification to your bill.

Once again thank you for your review.

With kind regards

Stayed here during summer. Only getting to review now. Stayed here in 2014 was disappointing with mediocre food and tired staff. This year couldn't be more different, staff were friendly well presented and happy in their work . I am told there has been change in management and it shows. Food was top class steak night a big hit with friends . Will see you all next summer. Keep up the good work nesbitt
