The staff were fantastic. So helpful. Especially loved the Spa and pool area. It was so uplifting swimming in the pool and looking out at the beautiful Mountains of Mourne and the bay. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here and hopefully back again soon!

The swimming pool and jacuzzi is an absolute winner for us. It's is the main reason we choose the Slieve Donard time and time again.

Lovely hotel in stunning setting

We were attending a family wedding.The wedding reception was impressive .Very well co -ordinated by Mohammed and the young staff and they are to be congratulated. On the downside Drinks VERYexpensive at the bar Room overlooking a wall! While the breakfast had good choices and delicious food the hefty price -tag of £180 for one night B and B wasn't worth it . There are many other places which are better value in Newcastle although it was good to meet with family the following morning. Although we stayed overnight and didn't have much luggage the wardrobe was very small with 4 hangers.The room would have held a much bigger one.Wouldnt be suitable for guests staying for longer but maybe this was an overnight room only. These comments are the reason for a low overall rating.

Beautiful hotel

Beautiful hotel. Only thing was the cleaner knocked on our door twice wakening us up and another worker knocked on our door early in the morning then when I answered she said she would call back. We had requested a late check out for a reason which was annoying being woke by these members of staff, apart from that it was a brilliant place to stay and I would definitely go back
