Perfect couples getaway
We stayed one night as a couple and paid 20 pounds for one hour in the thermal suite which was great value. Didn't have time for any spa treatments. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious, as was breakfast. Everything was fantastic and would definitely return.

A truly memorable stay in Ballycastle!!
Was blown away straight away by the amazing views across to Rathlin and Torr Head. Salthouse layout and style is unique and first class. Staff were just wonderful and service was second to none. Food was outstanding - amazing dinner and breakfast delicious with particular emphasis on presentation and quality. A truly memorable stay - will definitely be back!

8/10 Very good

Excellent night away
We had an amazing night! The location, the setting and the scenery were all super good. The facilities were great, we really enjoyed the spa (extra charge) the room was really nicely decorated but no bath tub (room 115) we were a little disappointed as we thought it would have a bathtub but apparently only 2 rooms have due to the eco friendly efforts. Plenty of free parking, the Lookout pub was very nice and clean with great scenery and the food was excellent and cocktails delightful. It set our stay off very nicely. The downside to the stay was the food in the main restaurant, very bland and tasteless, we both thought the same, they say breakfast is made to order, but tasted like it was pre-warmed and like dinner was tasteless. It was the only downside to a super, super stay.
