We stayed here for a one night break and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Lovely big room and nice clean modern bathroom.
Delicious food at breakfast and evening meal and could recommend their bar menu too which we had for lunch.
Very friendly and helpful staff
A walk to Cranny Falls well worth a visit

Stopped in for a snack and a beer, we enjoyed excellent service delivered with a smile and plenty of explanations to the questions we had about the place and village. We just had a small Irish cheese platter, very rich and delicious. The Pub's atmosphere is warm, cozy. Great place full of history too...

We stayed on a Groupon break for two nights in this lovely old hotel. Staff were very friendly and the rooms large and comfortable. We enjoyed our evening meals in the cosy bar area of the hotel. A great base to tour the Antrim coast.

stayed for three days at this hotel. we were in the Churchill suite. the staff were wonderful, helpful, cheerful and nothing was any too much bother. We sat in front of a roaring fire and had our
meal one night bliss. lovely views from the window and nice walks around the harbour.

Room Tip: rooms at the front can be wee bit noisy but the view makes up for that

We spent two nights here while exploring the Antrim Coast. The hotel has lots of character, the staff is friendly and helpful, beds are comfortable, everything is spotlessly clean. Some of the furniture seems to be antique. There is a good fire roaring in the bar area, ready to warm you up if you have had a cold, wet day. The food is good, straightforward, not fancy. Breakfast is typical for the area, lovely local wheaten bread. The only slight problem was the plumbing, the shower was either boiling hot or freezing cold. I solved the problem by having a bath instead of a shower. Part of the charm of the hotel is that it has not been "modernised".

Stayed here for one night with our English visitor while my husband was camping at the Bioblitz in Glenarm Castle's grounds. It was all fine and cost amazingly little, considering. The bed was comfortable, the bed-linen was good white cotton, the bathroom was nice, and the shabbiness complained of by other reviewers was not evident, although perhaps I just like a certain old-fashioned approach with fewer frills. The hotel was warm and smelt good, whereas the reviews had made me wonder about letting us in for damp, mildew and that scent of neglect which can afflict a bad hotel. None of this worry was justified. The wallpaper might be a bit unfashionable but that is not necessarily a bad thing, especially as it was not twee. The place wasn't fancy, but the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful and I was glad to have booked in there. The breakfast was OK but a wee bit lacklustre, as I don't think they have taken much notice of what other establishments do these days.

Room Tip: I had 201 which looks onto some countryside beyond a quiet street, so no noise at all, even on a Sat...

We stayed here last weekend, and had a comfortable two nights b& b plus two evening meals. We hadn't realized that the John Hewitt society was also staying at the hotel for their Spring/ early Summer meet up so the hotel was very busy.
First of all, the hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming and most helpful throughout . I had a very comfortable room at the back of the hotel, on the ground floor. The room was spacious, tv, armchairs, table, desk, tea/ coffee facilities... Very comfy bed, and warm. There was a minor problem because they'd run out of tabs for activating the electricity but reception told me how to get round that - so no bother!
The bathroom was a good size, full length bath and in my one, lots of hot water. The shower was equally good ( though some of my friends had a different experience) Breakfast was nicely laid out and promptly served, with a decent choice of cooked food. And there was herbal tea, in my eyes, always a bonus!
The hotel itself had a bar, and several eating areas, we ate in the Arkle Bar on both evenings. The food on the whole was good in spite of a few glitches, but these were cheerfully dealt with by very helpful and enthusiastic staff. My guess is the hotel was a bit busier than expected last weekend.... However, we all ( four) agreed that we really enjoyed our weekend and would happily stay again at the Londonderry Arms !!
