"What a Gem. Wonderful Friendly staff. Well appointed room with the largest king size bed I have ever seen. Had a great stay. Castle near by, an easy walk through the grounds, forest and the maize was fun. Well worth a visit."Joyce Murray, Belfast
"Ticked all the boxes and more. Clean rooms modern hotel, friendly staff and definitely not least, excellent food, all within easy reach of neighbouring towns like Newcastle and Downpatrick and right beside one of the gates of Castlewellan Park to allow us to walk around the lake and other trails as we love. Highly recommend."Dublin
