Just Back from an excellent 2 night mini break at Slieve Donard. We had a most enjoyable stay and were very well looked after for the duration of our visit. The setting is absolutely splendid and the hotel facilities second to none. Staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. We had a bedroom on the 3rd floor which was exceptionally well...

Stayed at the hotel for two nights recently and had a relaxing few days. Location is stunning with views over the sea & Mourne mountains. Room was well appointed with a large bathroom. Staff were helpful and efficient in every area. We had no robes or slippers in our room to go to the Spa but they were provided immediately....

Just back from a two night stay, this was our second visit to this beautiful hotel. Really don't understand some of the other reviewers negative comments about the staff/customer service, to me this is one of the hotel's best qualities, all staff smiling, friendly, helpful and chatty. Lovely, clean room with great views of slieve donard, amazing spa facilities! Being...

From the moment we arrived we were disappointed. Booking for dinner lost, the room was filthy, the last guests rubbish was still on the carpet. The sink hadn't been cleaned, the valence sheet was a disgrace. No bath robes in room for the spa. Dinner was so expensive and I have had better food in a cafe. Lamb over cooked,...

The hotel is situated at the foot of the Mourne Mountains is only a few metres from the beach. We stayed for a weekend with our son, daughter and our grand children who are 2 and 4 years of age. Everything about the weekend was excellent from the rooms to the food, the swimming pool and the highly efficient staff...

I stayed in the Slieve Donard with my husband, sister and brother-in-law. We arrived, checked in and went to our rooms. The room was lovely and it had a bathroom with shower (I love baths). I had had a busy night the night before and was falling asleep in the car on the way to Newcastle so I decided to...

I stayed here with my mother in Dec and couldn't praise the hotel highly enough. The spa and views onto the beach are stunning and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely. The resort rooms are newer rooms on the same side as the spa and we stayed here- peaceful and just a real treat. Thankyou Slieve Donard...

I had lunch with my husband and two children at the lighthouse lounge which is next to the spa. I was looking forward to a lovely simple, healthy, tasty lunch but was dreadfully disappointed. The atmosphere, staff, surroundings and in particular the view are really lovely but the food was poor. The chicken panini was literally chicken and panini no...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review after your recent stay with us, we really appreciate it.

What can I say about this place. Well I was here with work and attending a conference and although the hotel looks good and the bed was really comfortable and the quilt was lovely, there were so many things which weren't right and there were a few issues with the staff, that I came away very unimpressed by what ended...
