Slieve Donard Resort and Spa
Ranked #1 of 16 Hotels in Newcastle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Have recently returned from a 2 night stay in the lovely Slieve Donard, my first time staying in the resort. Staying at this hotel was more an experience than just a couple of nights in a hotel. the leisure facilities were excellent and the whole ambience of the place just something to be experienced. I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone and will certainly be back myself.

Second time of staying here. Paid for an upgrade from the basic room to the next room type up. Nice enough room 304 good size room with big bed 2 comfy chairs with table, dressing table with small wardrobe (6 hangers). Great view of the sea and mournes. Nice enough bathroom but shower over bath not separate, awkward towel rail at the end of the bath at head height made it awkward to get out of the bath after showering without hitting head on towel rail,small chip in the enamel of the bath and some bits of grouting needs redone. Also fan in bathroom didn't appear to work and room very warm as no air con. But all in all good hotel and room could maybe replace the 2 armchairs with a small settee. Breakfast quite good but would be nicer if it was served to you rather than self-service but then all hastings hotels are like that. Saying that I would have no hesitation in returning as it is a good hotel with friendly staff in a nice resort with easy access to the Mourne's, tullymore and silent valley etc.

Have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Slieve Donard Resort Spa. Very relaxing place to be. Food was great although I found the evening menu not as good as before. The staff were very friendly & so helpful. The bedroom could have done with some paint here & there but apart from that it was good. The only thing that I was disappointed in was all the nude statues that have appeared on the grounds. 1 are 2 would be fine but there must be at least 20, I really feel it takes the look off this 5 star hotel

Percy French described the area perfectly as the mountains of Mourne really do sweep down to the sea and provide the perfect backdrop for this lovely hotel. After many visits, the Slieve Donard Hotel is beginning to feel like home from home. Your every wish is anticipated. The bedrooms are very well appointed and the beds are amazing. The dining room has wonderful views of the area and the food is excellent. The staff deserve a mention as nothing was too much trouble for them. I look forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front provide the best views of the mountains and the sea.

I stayed at the Slieve Donard with a small group of close business friends. Most were playing golf and I booked a massage in the spa (last minute decision) and Lisa was delightful and excellent at massage. The business accommodation, bedroom and dining experience were all excellent. I hope to return before too long!

A hotel of this nature already 5 star really does not need any further recommendations - but I would like to say that our one night stay, after my nephew had his wedding at this hotel was wonderful. I have never slept on a bed so soft before - I felt like I was on a cloud! I even checked out the make of the mattress! The staff could not do enough for you, the whole event was superb. Downside - breakfast only served till 10.00am - and check out 11.00am! Although I did not make use of the leisure facilities, other members of my family did and I believe they are also excellent. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.
