Breakfast really good, Fresh Orange Juice is always a good indicator, great flavor in the sausages, extras as standard, poached eggs, potato cakes, and fried Bread.

Nice meal, the crispy eggs were exceptional but the sirloin steak was tough and very grisly. Dissapointing. The honeycomb was missing from the chocolate sphere dessert.

Had the steak, didn’t seem the best quality steak I have had to others elsewhere recently. Smaller but a better quality would be preferable especially when paying a supplement. Service was spot on from the young lads looking after us. Friendly without going overboard, not intrusive but nearby and available if needed. Other than my main rest of the meal was excellent.

Food was excellent, the bar/residents lounge was very poor, layout of the bar was, seating etc. Need to lose the Harry Look and style it fitting to the property itself. The room were very comfortable. The staff were very attentive, capable and surprisingly knowledgeable for young local talent. They were keen to help and assist you.

Luxurious hotel with all the qualities you would expect. Staff are excellent and couldn't do enough to help. Restaurants have food and service of the highest quality with great choices. Spa is a real treat of relaxation and top quality treatments with a stunning view of the Irish sea. Highly recommended, we will definitely be returning in the near future.

Another fantastic evening, the first of the Winter season where the beautiful decorations and warm fire got us in the mood for Christmas. As always, delicious food and lovely staff to make an evening to ourselves extra special and appreciated. Can't wait to do it again, soon! :)

We really enjoyed our meal in the oak restaurant. Anna was our waitress, helpful, attentive, efficient but not intrusive. The food was delicious if slightly expensive, we will definitely be back in the future.

We visited the Oak Rest at the Slieve Donard on the 1st November 2019 , it was our wedding anniversary and we were staying overnight . We were seated in an area where we couldn’t see to read the menu and asked to be moved , the rest manager was not happy , he was very rude to my husband and as the result we were treated very poorly from there on . We had to call the waitress every time we wanted something as nobody checked back with us regarding our satisfaction with the food etc . We both had scallops as a starter , they were OK , nothing special . I had rack of lamb as main course , it was just a plate of bones and fat , I managed to find some lamb but filled up on the cauliflower and potatoes . My husband had the pork , he said it tasted good but was very dry with little sauce . During the evening we were totally ignored by the manger , who I understand it called ‘ Kevin Keenan ‘ I would certainly NOT be recommending the oak rest to ANYONE .

Wait staff needs better training. Many staff there but lots of frenetic unproductive activity. Never asked again once water ran out. You need a hard look at management of wait staff. Food quality not what one would expect at this quality hotel.

Just wanted to thank chef Martie. I have a food intolerance to additives and usually don't end up with anything very exciting when eating out. Martie came to the bar to speak to me about the menu and advise me. It was a rare event for me and it enabled me to have a choice from the menu. For this reason alone I would return to the hotel. All staff were memorable and standard of cleanliness second to none. Love spa with a fantastic juice bar. I couldn't eat the cakes with my cuppa but they probably would have been OK. Didn't want to chance it so wonderful member of staff offered me a bowl of fruit salad. Being spoilt here has been lovely. Can't wait to return. Joan McFarland

The staff were great , they made a fuss of our 90 year old mother in law - she was delighted. The atmosphere was good , it is hard to fill such high ceilings , and the pianist was a lovely touch . The food was good and tasty but there was an awful lot of it !
