Gail is the best and so is her B&B! It was the coziest, cleanest, and most welcoming B&B of the 7 we stayed in. Rooms are fresh and new, with larger bathrooms than I'd seen elsewhere. Gail, who is funny and very welcoming, provides a fantastic booklet of local info including food and things to do, as well as directions... More

We loved our stay here and Gail was the perfect hostess. Food was great, room spotless and we felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. The area is stunning and so much to see and do. We will definitely be back.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in all my travels. The Rest A While B & B is wonderful. The hostess is most energetic, friendly, welcoming and accommodating... even drove us to the train to the Giant's Causeway when we didn't know how to get there. The rooms are spacious, clean, VERY quiet, and... More

Lovely place to stay. Greeted by Gail , the owner, who treats you like she has known you forever, very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Gail was happy to advise on places to visit . The b&b was warm , clean and comfy. Would definitely visit again . Breakfast was very good, good parking and close to visitor attractions.

Having read the earlier reviews it was difficult to imagine that anywhere could be quite as faultless as they suggested. I am happy to confirm that, as of last week, Rest A While is still living up to it's great reputation.
