“Never a boutique hotel!”
Reviewed 1 May 2011

Stayed for one night. Hotel in a great location for north Antrim coast. Staff were friendly, had an evening meal which was OK. HOWEVER this is never a boutique hotel. The room was the worst furnished/equpped room we ever stayed in. There was NO tea/coffee making facilities ,NO mirror in the bedroom, NO clock, NO bedside lights/lamps, NO hair dryer, NO seat/chair, NO dressing table and most bizzarely of all, NO phone. This despite the fact the hotel provided internal numbers to call. The wardrobe was positoned so close to the bed that you could only partially open the wardrobe doors, and could not move the bed because the headboard was attached to the wall. It was a struggle to walk between the wardrobe and bed. On our way up to the room at night there were bags of dirty linen sitting at the top of the stairs. When we went down for breakfast the next morning, the bags were still there. We had to use the stairs as the lift was not working.

For breakfast we were offered tea or coffee, and then served a fry. We were not offered breakfast juice, any cereals or any toast. Nothing was offered as an alternative to the fry. Never had breakfast served in this manner in any other hotel/B & B. Cannot believe that a hotel does not offer alternatives for breakfast, or offers guests toast/cereal/juice.

Emailed the hotel on our return home, but almost two weeks later have not received any reply or acknowledement. Could not recommend a stay at this hotel, particularly as there are plenty of alternatives in the area.

Upon arriving at this hotel, my friends and I were extremeley excited about an enjoyable girls night out and after leaving this hotel, I can honestly say i would never return. The staff were the main problem, making cheeky remarks and being very unproffessional throughout the whole duration of our stay. One member of staff told us that in order to get into the nightclub for free we had to each pay for a meal in the restaurant first which none of the other members of staff seemed to know anything about when we asked them for more information-this was not advertised on the website either at any point. So paid for the meal and for the price that it was-the service was incredibly poor, we were constantly going to the counter asking for things because no member of staff would take the time to come over and see if there was anything we needed. The next morning we were woke with the racket of construction workers right beside our room- something that we were never pre-warned about.
We tried not to let the lack of courtesy from the staff ruin our stay but I was extremeley dissappointed after paying the price that I did, for the room. I would advise anyone to stay away from this hotel!
