A couple of months ago, we went to Strangford in Co Down for a short visit just to have a bit of relaxation and different scenery. When I was looking for a hotel to stay in, there were two choices that stood out but after some online research, I decided to go for The Cuan.
Having read good reviews and seeing some online photos (plus the affordable price) made it easy to make the decision to stay at The Cuan, but actually experiencing it there confirmed that we made the right decision. From the moment that I sent them an email to make an inquiry, I have felt how very accommodating they are and responded very quickly to any inquiries or concerns that we had. And true enough, when we arrived, we were pleasantly pleased at how very welcoming they are and made us feel right at home. They made an effort to remember our names and always took the time to have a small chat when they see us to ensure that we have everything that we needed. We really like this personal touch at how they treat their guests.
The Cuan is a family owned and run hotel in the beautiful conservation village of Strangford. It was a sunny autumn day when we arrived there and the view of the Strangford Lough, which was just a few steps away from the hotel, was just beautiful. The area is a nice, quiet little village and if you have a car, you can park outside at the front of the hotel or at their designated parking area.
We stayed in one of their twin rooms which had a simple and clean layout with one single bed and one double bed and ensuite bathroom. It has all the basic and necessary facilities that you would expect in a hotel room including Wi-Fi connection.
We booked a bed and breakfast stay and I have to say that the breakfast part is one of the things that we looked forward to. Again, they have that personal touch where when you go down to the restaurant, they are already expecting you and have your table ready and waiting. They would have a table spread of food selections that you might want to have while the breakfast of your choice is being freshly made.
We also had dinner at their cozy restaurant and the seafood chowder and scampi quickly became our favourites.
We only stayed there for a couple of nights but it was definitely a great experience and will definitely stay there again when we go back to Strangford.
