We stayed here for one night while exploring the north Antrim coast. A friendly welcome. A quiet and clean room with a very comfortable king sized bed. We ate there - excellent mussels and a good breakfast, though background music rather intrusive. The location is excellent.

Stayed here for one night. Booked dinner when we arrived, we were squeezed in as the bar and restaurant had a lot of bookings. Had a bit of a wait for our table but dinner was good when it arrived. Drinks were fine and service was friendly and good. There was some live music for around an hour which was great. Our only complaint was the horrendous noise all night coming from fans, machinery of some type or something else, it was continuous throughout the night and I did not sleep much at all. I complained about this several times, the night Porter was very polite and understanding but the noise continued. I appreciated that in the morning, Orianne who worked extremely hard the previous evening and was back at breakfast service, offered us a complimentary breakfast to make up for the poor sleep. We appreciated this gesture. I think as a restaurant bar this place is great, not so sure we would stay again though due to the noise issues.

We stayed for 2 nights and had a family room in the annex. The room was clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. Even though, as with all hotels at present, the rooms aren’t serviced during your stay, housekeeping did knock to ask if we needed anything. We ate both nights in the restaurant and the food was exceptional. Breakfast was good too. A fab beer garden out back with pods in. Wonderful walks from the hotel- the rope bridge In one direction and Ballintoy harbour in the other. Would highly recommend .

We stayed here for two nights on the 21st and 22nd and all I can say is fabulous fabulous. The rooms are so clean and lovely decorated with all you need within the room. The food was superb, the chef and kitchen really know what they are doing and are a credit to this establishment. The bar staff are very friendly and attentive with a large range of not over the top priced drinks. As for the waiting staff this is a different story, as you are all fantastic so professional and attentive, but we have to give a really special thank you to Helen you are a star that brought laughter and smiles with your brilliant service thank you Unknown to you we were just getting over a recent bereavement and you most certainly helped us by your cheerful banter. To the management team, the kitchen staff, the bar staff and waiting staff. Thank you and look forward to staying here again.
