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 !

Afternoon tea was fab. Only slight criticism is that my hubby would have liked a bigger teapot of tea as he loves his tea and likes to get plenty of cups to go with his food. Also the the venison pie was lovely but not a good idea to serve it on a slate as it spilled everywhere off the plate - it would need to be on a small ordinary plate in future

Amazing service from when we first entered and got lucky enough to sit in the bay window with wonderful views of the both the sea and of course the mourne mountains which create an amazing atmosphere for our meal and also a good dinner conversation starter, food was amazing and I would highly recommended the Scallops absolutely delicious! Couldn’t fault anything with the oak restaurant fine dining at its best with out standing waiting staff 10/10 can’t wait to come back!

Proper quality food in stunning surroundings. Excellent choice and range on menu, with some lovely vegetarian options - goat's cheese and butternut squash filo parcel was delicious. Complementary smoked salmon, goats cheese and avocado mouse almost stole the show!

The oak restaurant is lovely and the pianist adds a special touch. The food was fine but nothing special. The staff were friendly and helpful but service was a little slow at times.

The booking system does not work. Food is good. I booked Percy French on the system and got an email confirmation for the Oak. I immediately called the hotel to check, and a staff member then booked Percy French for me. A couple of days before check in I then got a reminder for the Oak, not Percy French. When I arrived to check in there was no record of a reservation for Percy French so the very helpful staff member called them to rebook. The restaurant seemed to need convincing to accommodate us and pushed our time out by 15 minutes. When we arrived at this later time there was 8+ free tables!!! They had loads of room, were at maybe 80% capacity and could have easily accommodated us at the twice booked time. Squid seemed to be from pre made frozen bag. Beef was very good.
