Managed to squeeze my wife and I in for Sunday lunch at short notice and we weren't disappointed. Lovely Sunday dinner and great service from a very friendly team. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for goof food and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

Our twin room was immaculate not a speck of dust, each time we entered the room all we could smell was fresh laundry, the beds were very comfortable and the room was a reasonable size. The whole hotel was very clean... More

We stayed at this hotel when attending a wedding at the Ballygally Castle Hotel. It was very reasonably priced. The hotel room was lovely, very clean and comfortable. The staff were amazing, so friendly and even gave us a lift to the Ballygally Castle Hotel!! Breakfast was also very nice.

This place is so handy for being close to the ferry for a quick getaway. We ate in dinner here and everything was gorgeous and the staff were all very nice. The breakfast in the morning was lovely as well. We got a deluxe room away from the main building and it was very modern and spacious. Would definitely recommend

I was in the area for work and spent two nights in this hotel. It was a very reasonable price at £50 per night compared to others in the area wanting north of £100. Rooms are a reasonable size and beds are comfortable. Don't really need much more than that. The staff are very friendly and make you feel very... More

Booked for Mother's Day. Hotel was busy. Staff were welcoming and able to share a joke when setting table. Order taken and everything arrived on time and excellent. Cannot understand some of other reviews. I always find the place welcoming and the place is homely and not dated as suggested by others. I have been to all sorts of restaurants,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Halfway House Hotel is a family run hotel, situated on the world famous Causeway Coast/Antrim Coast and Glens. It can be described as the Gateway to the Glens and Causeway Coast because of the location. From the front of the hotel you can see that it is situated in a picturesque seaside village. On clear days, if you look across the sea you will be able to see the mountains of Scotland. Within the hotel there is also a large lounge area (Maidens Lounge) where food and drink are served daily. The menu has a wide variety of food available – from seafood to steaks and a great selection of sweets. Again this area has lovely views over the sea. ... more   less
