Had weekend stay. Hotel packed which is good to see. Loacation wonderful. Room excellent. Breakfast good.However dinner in Oak Restaurant very disappointing. Starters ordered were poor. Steak overdone (& an extra £5) into the bargain. Only veg served was that horrible

Unparelled setting on a hill over looking the ocean. Old world charm and opulence. Loved the Van morrison concert and the delicious dinner of Free Range Chicken. Would go back in a minute! The town of Newcastle is also charming and the folks in Northern Ireland are welcoming.

Beautiful hotel and our room had a lovely view of the sea. Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was tasty and again we had a lovely sea view to enjoy from our table at the window. Will look forward to returning.
