Good Hotel Guide Review
A short stroll from the world’s oldest distillery, there are peat fires, cosy nooks, a ‘secret’ library and well-considered bedrooms at this amiable 17th-century coaching inn on the Causeway Coastal Route. Many of the clean-cut bedrooms in the mill house, each with a sitting area, overlook the River Bush; all are supplied with tea- and coffee-making facilities, bathrobes and slippers. ‘Our room was excellent, and very quiet.’ In the public rooms, choose an ambience to suit. Eat modern dishes in the garden-facing restaurant or alfresco on the patio; hunker down in the Gas Bar, still lit by Victorian gas light, for a Guinness-and-oyster pairing and a Saturday-night live music session – in all, ‘a real plus’.
