On a recent trip to Northern Ireland we happened upon the Golf Links House B&B and couldn't be more pleased with our stay there. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They gave great recommendations on places to visit in and around Newcastle. The food at the restaurant was great tasting and very fresh. Thank you Patrick and Mrs. E McPolin for making our stay in Newcastle a great experience. We truly felt like we were part of the family. Looking forward to coming back again. By the way... golfers should have a chat with Peter, the bartender, he can give you great tips on golfing Royal County Down since he used to work there.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back overlook The Royal County Down Championship golf course

Thanks Brittany for your recent review. We are glad you enjoyed your experience and we could be of help to you. We think its important to try to help our overseas visitors as much as possible as not only is it a different country but a different culture and can sometimes be daunting to those travelling from abroad. Hopefully if your this way again you will call in to say hi! Thank you.

A group of around 35 of us booked the conference room at this hotel and asked for a budget menu as we had limted funding for the event. Almost all of us were older people. The staff coud not do enough for us and made us feel very welcome. We had a sandwich buffet with various savouries and vegetable soup and breads. The cost was excellent and many of our group stayed for drinks while others shopped. What a great day that was and great food.

A group of twelve of us stayed for two nights while golfing. We were greeted on our late arrival with a traditional warm Irish welcome. No issue we had was a problem and we were settled into cost rooms with little fuss. Our stay included a dinner on our second night and both Paddy and Peter made sure the group was looked after in every way. Rooms were warm, clean and cosy. Breakfast and dinner excellent fare and real value for money. All of our questions regarding local amenities were looked after, taxis ordered at will and the group were unanimous in our intention to come back again.

We stayed at the Golflinks House on Friday night. We where greeted by a pleasant gentleman who checked in quickly & gave us our keys & directed us to our room.

When we got to our room we found a very large room with a double & single bed with ample room, plentlyful storage space with a large wardrobe. The room was decorated to a high standard with a homely feel. Our bathroom again was great with a large shower. Our room was spotless throughout.

Breakfast was very good alot nicer than other places I've stayed before.

Could not complain at all about anything at the Golflinks House & would definetly stay again when in the area.

I called on spec and was greeted warmly. Very nice room and great bed followed by what was a really top class breakfast cooked by the very friendly host. Great conversation with the same lady who recanted some great stories and very sage advice. Book with confidence.

Room Tip: Booked two rooms and both were identical.

Just back from a fantastic week staying at Golf Links House.Everything was 1st class as we were made to feel at home and made very welcome.From the outset staff could not have been more friendly or helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble.The room and ensuite were spotless as was the bedding and fresh linen daily.As for the food,well no one could complain about the fantastic breakfasts we had on a daily basis and the lunch and dinner menus had more than enough for everyone.We are looking forward to a return visit before the end of the year to relax and be looked after again at Golf Links House.

Room Tip: We stayed in lucky number 7 and would recommend it to anyone

We arrived earlier than check out time but our room was ready and it wasn't a bother to the staff to let us on up to get settled as we had a baby with us. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. I asked for some extra towels which were provided promptly. We ate in the restaurant that night and even had a few drinks in the bar. The staff were great fun and very friendly. They recommended walks and parks to visit and we had a great stay. Thank you golf links staff and can't wait to enjoy more of your Irish hospitality!!

We are so glad you enjoyed you break with us. We always try to accommodate an early check-in where possible and especially as you were travelling with a small child as we understand first hand just how stressful this can be. We will pass your sentiments on to our staff, which they will be delighted to hear. We look forward to welcoming you back which is the best compliment you can give us. Many thanks again.
