This is a hidden gem within easy reach of the city centre of Belfast. Lovely rooms and a great breakfast. The owners are engaging and friendly. What a super place. Plenty to do locally. Highly recommended.
My wife and I stayed here whilst visiting friends. The location is great with a park and walks by the sea just minutes away. The breakfast choice was very good and Tim was very accommodating to what you would like. If you were ever short of something to do if an evening you could select one of 1000’s of DVDs available. We’ll definitely be coming back the next time we are visiting.
The property has been described well in many other reviews - a large, refurbished Manor House that is great to look at from the outside and even better on the inside. The house is located just off the A2 at the end of the M5 which makes it easy to get to Belfast or to drive the coast road. As you enter the house there is large hallway with a huge dining table and various curios around. Off the hall is the dining room where breakfast is served in the morning. Also off the all is the staircase up to the 1st floor where there is a large landing with a PC for guests to use and thousands of DVDs for guests to use. We were in the Eisenhower room with an en-suite bathroom (all the rooms have private bathrooms) and a great view over the Belfast Lough. There was a TV, DVD player, Stereo, alarm clock, charging cables and charger and plenty of towels. The room was spotless and the bedroom linen was of a very high quality the bed very comfortable. There was a thermostat that controlled the room temperature which was really useful. Breakfast was served at a time convenient for us - there was a menu in the room where you could choose what you wanted and the time you wanted it. Tim then cooked it fresh for you at the agreed time. Coffee was great. Cereals were available too. The room keys included the front door key which meant you could come and go as you pleased. A great place to stay and great hosts.…
The Abbeydene is a real gem. From quirky decor to huge beds in clean, beautifully appointed rooms and breakfast cooked, to order it is just wonderful. If you are too tired to go out in the evening you can watch the 50 inch TV in your room. and choose something from the DVD library of some 2,500 films. I stayed in the Eisenhower room which has simply stunning views over Belfast Lough. Tim and Effy, the proprietors, cannot do enough to make you feel at home. Thank you so much!
We spent one night here after we landed in Belfast. Tim is a delight and his breakfast was the best of our stay. We stayed in the cinema room in the biggest beds we have ever seen. Absolutely recommend this place!
