Overlooked by a fairytale castle and with a glorious pub next door, our night here was perfect. A wonderful welcome in a beautiful setting, the rooms were full of character. Highly recommend. Lots of good advice on local attractions also provided.

Spent new years eve in this wonderful Inn. Hospitality was exceptional,the room and ensuite was very spacious, the four poster was sooooo comfy and cosy,breakfast was delicious. It's a period property and I loved the complimentary decor,being a fan of the old fashioned. Really homely,would recommend a visit.

We stayed at the Coaching Inn, on recommendation from friends, in order to attend a party nearby. We were made most welcome throughout our stay. The facilities were very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Of note was how flexible and helpful they all were, from arrival all the way through to departure. We would have no hesitation in staying again...

Had a very friendly greeting and quick tour before being shown to the room. I had a small double room which was a lot bigger than I expected. Bed was very comfortable and had private toilet and bath/shower. Electric blanket on the bed just incase it got cold but it wasn't needed. The breakfast in the morning was very nice....

Never again! After my dreadful visit at Picnic Delicatessen and Killyleagh Catch and my heartbreak at Killyleagh Library I thought my stay here would really bring out the big guns. The place has a musty smell which I fixed by shoving a tampon up my nostril. It's a very outdated shack with not very well looked after features. The windows...

We had a lovely stay at the Dufferin Coaching Inn, our room was spacious and cosy, with a very comfortable four poster bed. The breakfast was great, the scrambled egg with smoked salmon was my favourite. There was good food to be found next door at the Dufferin Arms too.
