My wife and I checked in for a 1 night stay here in Feb 17. There was a wedding in full flow so it was quite busy and noisy. Although the receptionist was friendly and nice when speaking with her i got the impression she was trying to sort problems before they had happened. Within the first hour and half...

On arrival we were upgraded, much to our surprise, to a fabulous room with a balcony overlooking the picturesque countryside and beyond to the sea. Sheer luxury! The hotel was tastefully decorated and immaculate throughout. The menus both food and wine for the bar and restaurant were extensive with servings being all too generous. The staff were very polite and...

Was very impressed with the Hotel staff and efficiency, we were lucky to get lovely Spring weather. The area is beautiful and it is very convenient to Derry. Hotel was better than I expected and the quality of food was very good. I would definitely return for longer stay next time and explore more of the area.
