“Great room for our family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2011

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 teenage sons, as our base for visiting the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede Bridge. We had a family room which was huge (3 double beds, and lots of walking room)! The price for this room was fantastic when compared to other family rooms in which we had stayed. We liked our room so much, that we extended our stay. (Its not extravagant, but had all of the necessities, was clean and neatly decorated, and was roomy.) Had dinner in the hotel restaurant - every one of our meals was incredibly delicious. Staff was friendly and helpful in directing us to transportation to the Causeway. If you have younger children, there is a play area in the outside hotel courtyard. We did not have a car, and arrived in Portrush by train. Though the hotel is a bit of a walk from the train station/coast, taxis are available for very reasonable rates. We would definitely stay here again if we return.

This hotel in Portrush is basically an American motel, with little charm or atmosphere, as is the town of Portrush. No restaurant open, no one in the bar, and a group of people in the lobby that seemed to be mental patients of some sort (not being cruel, that's just what they seemed to be.I didn't really understand why they were there.) This being the mid-point of a ten-day trip, I had asked by e-mail if they had laundry facilities. The reply back said yes. When we arrived, the desk person had no idea what I was talking about. This was my third trip to Portrush for the surrounding scenery, and I should have known better than to stay in town. The included breakfast was adequate, though the service was indifferent.
Pass on this hotel, and Portrush, as an overnighter.

Friendly Reception. Large, modern, well appointed room.
Dinner in the Bistro was OK.
Liquid soap holder for the bath is positioned for use when having a shower so can't be reached when sitting in the bath! Reception helpfully provided a bar of soap.
Takes less than 5 minutes to drive into Portrush which was no problem.

Contrary to its online description, this property is tired and has no view but is flanked by numerous newer houses. Our room was very minimal in comfort. The desk clerk was very kind and helpful, though she seemed to be the only person on duty. Breakfast was adequate and kindly served.
