stayed here whilst attending a wedding in another venue in Newcastle. Location was ideal. Bedroom was perfect for our family needs. staff couldn't have been more helpful. my only comment would be in relation to breakfast being very greasy and the little boxes of cereal being out of date. I would definitely stay again.

One night stay made very pleasurable by very friendly staff, a comfortable room and a really good breakfast. Delivered on all of our expectations and we will be back without a doubt. Great base for exploring the area

Stayed at "The Donard" for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the views and proximity to the main strip of Newcastle. The room was oddly shaped but that's part of the charm. The staff were very welcoming and I would stay here again.

I stayed here for one night on 09/03/17, I was attending a function in the town. Parking outside on the main street was fine, you can stay to mid day without charge. The hotel also has it's own parking. The gentleman on reception was wert welcoming, he took me to my room via the lift and confirmed a late return...

We stayed here for a weekend while we climbed the Slieve Donard and explore the area. The staff were polite and nothing was too much trouble for them. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms were spacious. Has an elevator which was much needed after mountain hiking. No complaints and would recommend.

I stayed overnight here on New Years Eve after attending a wedding at the Slieve Donard Hotel, and was relieved at how reasonable the price was. When I arrived, staff made me feel so welcome, and helped me up to my room with all my stuff. They couldn't have been more friendly or helpful, and honestly were an absolute delight...

I stayed here back in July while walking around Ireland in aid of Pieta House, and the Donard Hotel graciously offered to put me up for the night. I was warmly welcomed by Pat and Natasha, who really couldn't do enough for you. I had a fantastic sleep in a comfortable room and the breakfast the next day was delicious....

I traveled to Newcastle for a Van Morrison concert in July. I am glad I was unable to get a room at the Slieve Donard to afford me the experience of the very homey Donard Hotel. We were greeted and shown to our room by Pat, pretty sure that was really his name. No, it is not a sparkling new,...
