Tripadvisor Review
"One of the top hotels we ever had the pleasure to stay in. Every part of the hotel is spotless and the location beside the beautiful Castlewellan park is perfect for a stroll a hike or a run. The hotel is only a five minute drive from Slieve Donard ulster’s highest peak. Breakfast was perfect but the staff really make this the perfect place to stay."

"I must mention that the disability access for both the hotel and the restaurant area are very good with wheel chair access and a very well laid out floor plan for ease of accessibility. "

"The waiters and waitresses were a young bunch, the wee guys (and girls) were so professional and polite. It makes all the difference. Customer service was excellent across the board. This is something that is so important and Hillyard House have nailed it! I know it is a new hotel but I absolutely love that everything was exceptionally clean. Bed was amazing; I could hardly get my husband out of it... We will spread the word about this lovely place 😊"
