Reviewed 24 June 2014

We just stayed at the Slieve Donard Resort as a birthday surprise, This Hotel is absolutely amazing, Our room was Fantastic and a great view of the sea. The breakfast was just out of this world, and the food was delicious. No wifi in our room but this was not a problem as I was able to pick up my e-mails in the residence Lounge. Overall we will definitely be back real soon, and we can't wait.

Room Tip: Room 422 was amazing.

This hotel is tops from the view, room, and food. We went with a group so the men could play golf in this beautiful area of the country. We enjoyed every minute! Would definitely go back. I have nothing to complain about. The service is the best.

We stayed here so my husband could play Royal County Down. The hotel is quite ancient, but it is in good condition. We enjoyed the historical photos and items displayed throughout the hotel. Upon check in our room did not have power. We were quickly transferred to an upgraded room. There was no free in room wifi so we spent time in the bar to get online. The town itself is boring with no real shopping and few restaurants. I was not aware that the huge breakfast buffet was included with our rate so we didn't really get a chance to enjoy it, but it looked amazing.

My sister, daughter, her partner my grandson and myself have just spent the most beautiful weekend at this hotel. Everyone went wayout to make sure we had a wonderful relaxing time nothing was a bother. I misled my room card went to reception was greated by a lovely lady Paula who I must say could'nt have been more helpful coupled with her bubbly personality.

My grandson enjoyed is little swim in the pool whilst we adults chilled in the steamroom and sauna. Our whole experience was delightful and we shall be returning soon.

The rooms were excellent we had a nice view of Mourne Golf Club no noise considering there were two weddings at the Hotel during our stay. A last comment but not least the beds are so comfortable a very enjoyable stay throughout for all our party thankyou to all .

Room Tip: As I already said in my review our room was facing Mourne Golf Club very quiet and a pleasent view.

Just home from a weekend break with my sister, hotel was fantastic, service excellent, in particular Paula at reception...... friendly, helpful lovely person. Rooms were bright and airy, on the downside wifi in bedrooms would be a bonus.Breakfast had an excellent variety of locally sourced produce, however we found getting up earlier to avoid the rush was better for us. Spa and gym facilities are excellent, lovely views overlooking the beach, pure bliss. Gardens are beautifully maintained and a pleasure to walk around in the gorgeous sunshine. I would thoroughly recommend the Slieve Donard and we definitely will be back.

We stayed at Slieve Donard for 2 nights last weekend and would rate it 10+ if rating allowed. Absolutely outstanding hotel with the best-ever-team (special mention for Clare Faloona who went above and beyond), they cannot do enough to make guests feel welcome. The rooms, the food, the most comfiest of comfy beds, not to mention the beautiful idyllic setting all made for a truly wonderful and totally relaxing weekend away. Cannot recommend Slieve Donard highly enough. Superb!!
