We stayed at Staten Lodge as we had a wedding in Carrick and it was great. Immaculately clean, beautiful rooms and the owners are so friendly. Great value for money we paid €79 for two people inc breakfast and much nicer than staying in a busy, noisy hotel that charges at least twice this rate. It is a little bit out of the town but we were able to get a taxi for €7 from The Landmark Hotel. Friends of ours payed double what we paid and didn't get the same welcoming, friendly service so I would highly recommend! The owner even gave us a lift out to the wedding reception. Then they were asking us about our day the following morning at breakfast and couldn't do enough for us. We would definitely stay there again and have already recommends it to friends. Great place.
