We went to the Royal Court today for the carvery lunch. The dining room has spectacular views to the sea where you can watch the rolling waves lap the seashore as you enjoy lunch.

Best aspects of this hotel are the staff, who were extremely friendly and attentive. Secondly the location is perfect, terrific sea views and just a few minutes from the Giants Causeway & Dunluce Castle. Inside, our room and all public areas were spotless.The decor is somewhat old-fashioned/dated however. Our room over-looked the car park at the rear, so imperative if... More

The hotel is nice but the decor is a bit old fashioned. Food is nice and staff are friendly enough. What makes this hotel is its location overlooking the white rocks with uninterrupted sea views. Good parking.

We stayed for one night at the Royal Court hotel. Our room was at the back overlooking a grassy hill. It was beautifully decorated and much nicer than we had expected, as we had got a bargain rate. Traffic noise was minimal and we had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was served in the dining room overlooking White Rocks beach.... More

I was really disappointed to read the negative comments made with regard to the food at the Portstewart Centenary Dance. The consensus at our table of eight and numerous other guests was that the food was excellent. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I respect this but it is so easy to hide behind a pen name.

The Hotel occupies one of the most picturesque positions on Northern Ireland’s famous coastline, overlooking the Seaside town of Portrush with panoramic views from County Donegal to the Scottish Isles and over to the Giant’s Causeway.
