We stayed here for the weekend in June as we were doing some walking around The Giants Causeway. The Tavern was easy to find (from space I would imagine with the colourful external decoration).
We were greeted and shown our room which was at the back of the hotel so all we faced were some trees. It was clean and compact but it had everything we needed and some things we didn't (there were some clothes and underwear in one of the drawers in the chest!). The en-suite shower room was small but again everything was there that we needed, even some shower gel that had been left behind (they have a table outside the rooms that has all the leftovers from people - nice touch that costs nothing). The towels were clean and soft and the bed was comfy and clean.
The Tavern is in need of a makeover, I appreciate it's an old pub but I don’t think what was there is really what the traveller wants, they at least want a comfortable Tavern that doesn’t look like it needs a makeover. Don't get me wrong it seemed clean and I don’t doubt that it gets busy but it just too cluttered. There were some previous comments about the noise from the live music at weekends. It does say on the website that this noise is there. If it bothers you that much then go down and join in then it won't keep you awake.
The breakfast was awesome. We had to walk a lot to walk off what we ate and the continental breakfast was really sweet and well thought out. There was a great choice of juices, yoghurts, preserves.
We had a really good time for the 2 days we were there. We only paid £27.50each per night and for that money it was exceptional. Next year, for the same time of year the charge is £40 each but still a more than fair charge for what you get and where you are.
Would I recommend the Inn to others - yes but remember what you are paying and and what you are getting, I think it is good value for money.
