  • We stayed overnight in the Hotel recently and had a great start to the break when our room was updated before we had a chance to request one. We made use of the excellent spa in the afternoon and had ...  more »
  • We had a great time getting to the top. Weather was fine and ascent was a physical challenge in parts but views made it well worth it. Descent was trickier than I thought and 'wobbly' legs for last ha...  more »
  • It's a great location. Walk out the front gate and you're practically at the beach and right in the heart of Newcastle's pubs and restaurants. The hotel itself looks out to the sea. The restaurant is ...  more »

  • Gorgeous property in scenic Northern Ireland. Rooms feature seaside views and common areas are appointed with wood burning fireplaces. Service is impeccable. Nearby Slieve Donard is a great hike and offers great views of the countryside. Newcastle is an interesting little town with loads of shops and decent restaurants. The Spa at Slieve Donard is also great, offering a variety of services. Highly recommend for a weekend getaway or those wishing to spend some time in the Irish countryside
  • Had a lovely walk around the grounds. Didn't stay at the hotel itself, but had a wonderful coffee and bagel with salmon and soft cheese in the spa coffee lounge for £9.Had a walk around the lobby and ground floor. All looked nice but a bit dated. Less than 1 minute walk to the sand n sea from the entrance. Its more of a pebble sand and sea, not recommended for swimming but a nice stroll. Its about 2 minutes to the high street. Great view of the mountains. A nice place to spend a few hours.
  • Yeah it's a 5 star hotel and earns every star. It's the kind of place where you walk in and immediately know you're not good enough to be there and yet the staff treat you like a king. Food is tasted, pints are more expensive than I've seen anywhere else in Newcastle but I suppose that's to keep the rifraf out... Spa was lovely and all was clean. Beautiful views. Not from my room tho but then I didn't ask for a view.
  • Wish we had more time here. There's a spa, so bring your suit and enjoy. Gorgeous area. Very comfortable rooms (we had a spa room).
  • First and only visit. Had high expectations. Expensive++ In Resort Room. Space economised/challenged, though did have safe, and general facilities. Long wait for breakfast. Complaint not handled well when overlooked. Staff clearing food away before we started breakfast.Room service during 3night stay left a lot to be desired. One room service during period. Standards not of a quality to match the ambience of the building and its surrounds.
