Is someone seriously having a laugh about this hotel? Try staying here at the weekend and you'll experience every one of the most drunk and highly sexed teenagers that have descended upon Portrush looking to drink until the week hours. Honestly, this hotel cannot be renting rooms to normal people and must survive by renting them by the hour. Do... More

I cannot speak for the rooms in this hotel but the meal I had was the worst in my life. Half cooked chicken, frozen chips and my daughters Lasagne was vile. Sorry folks but you need to improve. Stay well away.

We stayed at this hotel recently. We had a long drive from the south and it was the first place we came across when we got to Portrush. The owner of this place clearly has not visited other hotels before setting room rates. We would not recommend this hotel to any travellers unless you are absolutely desperate for a place... More

I have been waiting a while to review this place since i ate there with my girlfriend. My blood is still boiling almost a week after.

The hotel is a bit run down, the waiting staff need some serious training but on the few times we've eaten in The Eglington over the last year, it's been good value for great steak and kids meals. The steaks are sourced from a local butcher and definitely worth it if you don't fancy the wait and the noise of... More
