Reviewed 4 August 2013

My sister, her husband and father-in-law when for a day trip and called for a meal in the above hotel. Each of us had a different choice from the menu and all meals were delicious. waiting staff were very helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: We did not have an overnight stay in the hotel as it was a day trip.

Myself, my 2 daughters and partner came to Cromore for a Birthday meal..we all ordered a main course only..my partner ordered haddock and champ..although quite tasty the portion would have been bettered served on a saucer..very small portion (when asked for more champ the staff very kindly brought more)..my younger daughter ordered ordered the chicken caesar salad..very tasty apart from a boiled egg cut in half and placed on top of the meal...is this the norm for chicken caeser?..my other daughter and i ordered the chicken, bacon and mushroom pasta with garlic bread..a nice meal apart from the lack of mushrooms (i had none)..the garlic bread was one small slice..for a £9.95 main course i would have expected more garlic bread and at least a couple of mushrooms in my pasta..When we pointed out the lack of mushrooms to the waiter he kindly offered us one free pudding between 4 people..we refused.. i would have preferred a larger portion of main course as that was all we wanted..a nice place..nice staff...but food overpriced unfortunately for the small portions you receive..local upmarket hotels offer a menu with similar prices with bigger portions..

Stayed here for my sister's (aka The Big Lebowski) graduation from Coleraine (home of Coleraine University Netball Team - see the problem there?) . Rooms were clean and roomy (if you'll pardon the pun). Went down to the res-taurant for dinner and was initially very disappointed; I ordered the Irishman's favourite garlic mushrooms so imagine my dismay when it was mushrooms in garlic sauce rather than the usual breaded kind. However after tasting I had to put on my cookie monster voice and say "om nom nom nom". Main course and dessert were quite nice too but the meal was wild expensive apparently hi (I wasn't paying, I did not care).

Staff were most welcoming and all congratulated the Big L on her graduation. In hindsight this probably pointed to a gossiping problem but we thought it was ve'y nice. Burnt my foot in shower.

Awoke the next morning and went down for breakfast, same staff, same seats = Groundhog day. Had my usual - Kellogg's cornflakes and then ordered our hot breakfasts, breakfast was delicious unfortunately ShesNoGronkowki and the White Stripes would never have known (the ladies had to abscond for makeuping when breakfast hadn't arrived after twenty five mins) (slow and steady tastes the best I suppose)).
Buy aye a grand old spot.

We stayed for 1 night in Cromore Halt July 1st. It was rather quiet but I must say that the staff was very attentive. Maureen in reception and the lady supervising restaurant deserve special mention. The bedroom was warm, comfortable and spacious. Our evening meal was really tasty. Unfortunately, I returned dreadful carrots to have them replaced by more of the same!!! I was rather surprised that a chef would send them out - but that was the only blot on the landscape. The breakfast next morning was wonderful - hot and freshly cooked. Nothing worse than cold, limp food doled out at breakfast time. No worries on that score. The brekkie was fab. Would certainly return if travelling in the area again. Very good value for money

One of our greatest joys in visiting Portstewart over the years has been dining at the Cromore Halt. What an unpleasant surprise we had this year when we dropped in to find a new menu, mediocre (at best) food, and a completley inattentive wait staff. They were happily chatting amongst themselves the whole time we were there, but had little time nor inclination to provide us with even the most rudimentary level of service. The restaurant must have changed ownership, although our waitress did not know. There is no chance we will ever dine here again!!

Had heard the food was good here so thought id give it a go! Lamb was advertised as coming with butternut squash purée, onions and mushrooms but came plain 3or4 small pieces of dry lamb on a plate, I never said as I thought maybe the other stuff was on its way! Kids meals were equally as poor and the McAtamneys roast tasteless! Worst I've eaten in the area and I eat out at least every week! Staff however were very pleasant!
