    Great Hotel but Slightly Disappointing Dinner”

    We loved our couple of days in this wonderful old hotel. The staff and facilities were wonderful and the location is second to none. We ate in both the main dining room and the Lighthouse Lounge. Breakfast in the dining room was excellent and lunch in the Lighthouse Lounge was delicious and very good value. Our only small complaint was with the dinner. We chose beef and lamb dishes from the set menu and were disappointed with the quality of the meat in both cases. Everything else was lovely and the staff were pleasant, but we did feel that the dinner overall did not represent great value for money. We definitely plan to return to this lovely hotel, but we will check out the other available options for our evening meals.

    This really is the jewel in the crown of the Hastings Hotels. I have stayed at a large variety of hotels and the standards maintained by the staff at Slieve Donard are head an shoulders above the rest. I thought that service like this was only reserved for the Savoy and venues that charged 000's per night. If you get the chance book executive room no 224 - amazing bay windows and views of the beach. This hotel wont suit children but it will suit a romantic getaway and you're wife/girlfriend/partner will be suitably impressed with you!

    This is a very nice resort hotel. The only one in the area .”

    The quality of rooms is 5 star. The only thing that holds it back from being a true 5 star hotel is some of the small things you would expect, such as turn-down service, etc. That said, the staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful. The food is good, but not true gourmet- but then again, you are in Ireland. Highly recommended.

    The view , size of the resort room and the quietness

    We really enjoyed the stay and faboulous views. I would stay at the resort room again just for the size. I did tell them it was our anniversary and I've read before that other couple received a happy anniversary card and chocolates but not for us unfortunatly. Also breakfast was a nightmare we did not tick the card for breakfast in bed the night before so we ordered it in the morning and it took 2 hours to come !! When it arrived it was completely wrong order so I rang them they sent another order which was wrong again so we have up and just ate what we had. It was a lovely place to stay but I think when it gets busy there you do feel forgotten about especially paying £220 for one night I thought we would feel a bit special. I would stay again but not for that price. Also agoda has the wrong pictures of the resort room they have pictures of the suite !!!
