Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We did not stay at this hotel, but we had dinner in the restaurant. There was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't very interesting. The service, too, was just ok. There really isn't anything else to say because this dinner was not very memorable.

With friends and family for a much awaited celebration meal. Waited forever for the meal to be served then told no naan bread was available for my meal… my Asian chicken curry had three pieces of chicken hardly a main course in my reckoning. It...took forever to clear the plates (50 minutes) after our meal and I voiced my dissatisfaction with my meal. Others in the group had a reasonable meal choice but overall not a great evening. I would certainly choose another option in the beautiful town of Ardara if I were you, and I certainly will not be back anytime soon.More

After six months waiting for a restaurant meal, this was a massive letdown. We ordered the Monte Cristo (which sounded like a club) sandwich and an open prawn and salmon sandwich. The prawn and salmon was average, marie rose sauce tasted cheap but it was...edible. The Monte Cristo was disgusting. Actually shocking. Soggy French toast with chunks of processed ham and chicken with barely melted cheese. Couldn't even look at it, never mind eat it. Without a doubt the worst thing I've ever seen served up in a restaurant. How can you get a sandwich so wrong? Pic attachedMore

We had a very relaxing stay, rooms were nice and the hotel was comfortable and clean. The staff were super friendly especially Sophie who seemed to be on duty every hour of the weekend and always had a smile and went above and beyond to...do what she could to help.More

We were staying in the Nesbitt Arms and I went into the restaurant earlier in the day to book a table for later. There was a table in the corner I liked for my girlfriend and I however it was set for 4 people so...wasn't sure I would be able to get it however when we returned later the staff had kindly set it aside for us! We both got steaks which were cooked perfectly and to a very high standard. My girlfriend also got some cocktails which were amazing. Food and staff were both brilliant would love to return if back in Ardara.More
