Just requires modernised
The staff are lovely and friendly the accommodation was great but the food was fantastic
Nothing was to much trouble. Breakfast was all I wanted, or could eat
STRINGS IN GUITAR NEEDS REPLACED....................IN RELAXation room.
THE FAMILY HOSPITALITY - WILLS DAD MAKING SURE all was well.............MUMS BREAKFAST GREAT.
The friendliness of the staff and owners along with an exceptional restaurant run by a renowned chef in Ulster who happens to be the owners son. The meals are sensational!
Beautiful and quiet location. Extremely hospitable, helpful owners. The restaurant was closed when I stayed in the hotel (mid week). The owner cooked a very tasty dish so I did not have to go out for dinner. Breakfast was accommodated for my special needs (gluten intolerant). A map was handed to me of my next destination. This was very helpful. Very nice and very kind owners.
The showers in the bathrooms are very poor. Definitely not power showers. Although bedroom was comfortable, a modernisation would be more consistent with contemporary restaurant.
The food was superb, especially the fresh breads. Also, the presentation of the food and the calibre of the ingredients was exceptional.
Even though the restaurant was closed for refurb, the owner offered dinner which really was appreciated and it was lovely. The breakfast was also lovely. Everyone was really friendly. Would highly recommend.
Minor point. A power shower would be a good addition to the room. But again, just a minor thing
Home from home. Comfortable bed and furnishings. Wide selection of tea's, coffee and hot chocolate to help yourself to.
met rory mclroy and hotel was amazing thanks
Room was a bit cluttered and could have been cleaner.
Comfortable stay, remote location, nice breakfast
This is a very warm and friendly family B & B. in a lovely rural setting. Averill and her husband made us so welcome, lovely accommodation, their breakfast was exceptional. Their son is the super chef of his restaurant - attached, beautiful food- a lovely place to stay for a few nights as it is so handy for overseas tourists.
Nice rural location very near to Castle Espie WWT. Restaurant is excellent.
Poor WiFi in the room, as connection could not be made. Very dark parking area.
Friendly staff, nice diner, good breakfast, neat overall appearance
We had bath sheets - hurrah. Good breakfast
Very good restaurant will top chef Will Brown! Must eat there!
Wi fi was poor
Staff were lovely.
nothing really , the rooms are a wee bit dated thats all
The food was 11 out of 10 fantastic !
Nothing negative at all.
The best restaurant at any accommodation house we experienced on our whole six week trip. Excellent position to visit Mount Stewart Gardens.
The location - very peaceful, the staff who were very friendly and the food was superb, we enjoyed the best meal we have ever had!
The whole experience was excellent. Having stayed in one awful and one mediocre hotel the previous two days, this was an oasis with lovely staff, comfortable rooms and fab food.
When criticising the centralised tea and coffee making facilities (which clearly are not a great idea first thing in the morning) being asked to leave! This at gone 10.00pm on a Saturday night. If you like this sort of thing this is the place for you. If not, and notwithstanding the other reviews, I would steer well clear. In terms of tea and coffee making facilities, having just woken up and got out of bed,do you really want to have to walk the length of the building to get a kettle and dirty mugs (the only type that I could find) and take these back to your room to fill and clean respectively? And then you have to go back to where you had found them to make the beverage of your choice? Having made your drinks you then have to return to your room (down some stairs in all probability) hoping that you do not spill any of it and scald yourself on the way. On discovering, after dinner, that there was still no water in the kettle or, on this occasion, any milk in the fridge my wife went in search of help. On finding the owner in the kitchen, she was told that the water in our room would have been just the same which was not particularly helpful. And, as my wife pointed out, this did not solve the problem of the milk because we did not have our cow with us! When the milk was brought through to the lounge area I feel that my comment that this system was unsatisfactory was fully justified. The owner did not and actually told us (as in shouting) to leave immediately. So out onto the street at 22.30 hrs. on a Saturday night we were. This extraordinary temper tantrum was witnessed by our friends who live nearby. What they made of it I shudder to think. Just to add to the delight of the ambiance of the place, the window fame and sill in our room had not been properly introduced to a duster for some time and my wife kept finding shards of glass on the bathroom floor.
The location is very good and the restaurant here exceptional.
Hotel at a good level, We can not complain, lived up to our expectations. Amazing restaurant, worth a visit
bad coverage on mobile signal

That our stay was only for 2 Nights.
