The location of the hotel is stunning with a magnificent view of the Mourne Mountains, Slieve Donard, and Dundrum Bay. An excellent standard of hygiene in the bedroom, bathroom and throughout the hotel. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The museum was very interesting as it gave the history of the hotel and Co. Down railway. The Receptionist, Angela,...

On 2 day package. Our room, 313 has one of the worst views, apparently u need to book a view. The best hotel in Newcastle Co Down beside the beach and the famous mountains as a backdrop and we get a brick wall of a view. The evening meal was overpriced and mistakes made with our order. Plenty of staff...

The hotel location is stunning. It's at the foot of the Mourne mountains, looking out to the sea. It's a beautiful old building, steeped in history. Charlie Chaplin stayed here. The food was fine, but the rooms and corridors could do with a bit of freshening up. The spa is wonderful and the infinity pool is breathtaking.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel last night 17/1/17. We were warmly welcomed at reception and upgraded to a superior room. Everything about this hotel was top class from the doorman to the barman. The leisure centre was one of the best I have ever been in. The views from the hotel are spectacular and it is within...
