Stayed at this venue for 3 night while visiting relatives. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly, especially Donna in the restaurant who went the extra mile for us. Excellent stay, look forward to returning.

I stayed at the Downshire Arms Hotel over the weekend, all the staff were extremely friendly, polite and helpful at all times. There is a massive choice for breakfast, all cooked superbly and served by lovely staff. It would be impossible I feel to find any fault with this establishment, I would highly recommend this without hesitation, faultless.
