We had a fabulous stay at Hargreaves House for eight nights from November 5-13. This was our secondd stay, having stayed for a week in April 2013. When we found we were coming back to Bangor, we knew where we wanted to stay. Hargreaves House has it all--top notch facilities, gourmet breakfasts, convenient location, and a wonderful proprietor. And very...

Everything about our stay was fantastic, it was my wife's first visit to Northern Ireland and it couldn't have gone better. Our host supplied us with excellent information to assist our weekend which went extremely smoothly. The accommodation itself was also fantastic and attention to detail was amazing. Would recommend to anyone and we will be repeating our trip soon.

It's difficult to decide which " special treatment " was the most " special ". Was it the perfectly cooked breakfast; was it the guinness bread with the manuka honey; was it the thoughtful directions given to a hard-to-find destination; was it the very comfy bed; or was it the time when Pauline searched all over the house to find...

We stayed 2 nights at Paulina's B&B at the end of our long driving trip around Ireland. It couldn't have been a better experience! Paulina had to be one of the most helpful, professional, and considerate B&B owners we encountered. Just the little things - and it started months ahead of time when we booked. She graciously sent us a...

I loved this B&B ! We had room 2 which had its own bathroom. It was up one short flight of stairs and it was a really private, spacious room which made you feel relaxed straight away. The bed was most comfortable and the little touches of a bottle of water and glasses, fresh flowers and lovely bed linen made...

We stayed here for a night during the Open House Festival. We stayed in a downstairs double ensuite. The room was quiet and very comfortable, there were even bathrobes provided.

Hi - Thank you for your comments on your stay with us and I am glad we were able to help with the various restaurants here in the town. We are continually trying out the various restaurants ourselves to make sure anywhere we recommend gives good value for money and also has a good ambience. Pauline

To rate this hotel as excellent is an understatement. From the time of first booking Pauline went over and above all our expectations as a host. As this was more than just a family vacation (Family wedding party) nothing was too much trouble for Pauline from arranging taxi collection from the airport on arrival and return on departure she was...

Stayed for 2 nights. Pauline Mendez was a knowledgeable and helpful hostess who made it a pleasure to be in her house. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and the cooked breakfast everything that you would expect in an Ulster Fry. Will certainly be returning.

Hargreaves House was a lovely place to stay. Pauline was so welcoming, and very accommodating, I felt right at home.

Thank you for your lovely comments on your short visit. I am sorry you had to leave earlier than expected but fully understood the reasons why.
