Despite the weather on arrival the warm welcome and the friendliness of the staff didn't dampen our spirits. Nothing was too much bother. In fact they went above and beyond when it came to finding suitable seating for our young children - who were too young in our opinion for the dining room menu and the bar being full. The...

Two great golf courses, great hotel, food and service second to none and brilliant value. We were admittedly very lucky with the weather, but the entire experience couldn't be bettered. Already planning a return trip.

I spent a weekend at the Rosapenna Golf Hotel last summer and I was astounded at the size, comfort, and cleanliness of the suite, with a comfortable settee and chairs in the sitting room area with a view on Downings Bay (what a glorious sunset we were thus qble to enjoy!).

This is a lovely hotel with nice staff, huge bedrooms, good food and an fab location. We booked the hotel as it was close to the golf course and offered a pool and leisure facilities. However I was very disappointed when I arrived to learn that the leisure centre has very limited opening hours. It opens for a few hours...
