Reviewed 15 June 2014

Really wonderful stay - couldn't have asked for more! Ken and Mary are such caring people and their rooms and breakfasts reflect this care. Had a great time and would love to return sometime soon if I can!

This was my 7th year with Ken and Mary.I ve enjoyed every year.They are great people very friendly.The rooms are first class everything you need.The breakfasts take some beating. There are shops just across the road which is ideal for a day out. Local pubs and shops just down the road.This b@b is ideal for touring the West or the East coast which we have done many times.
Thanks to you both, looking forward to next year.

This was my first visit, and from the outset Ken and Mary made me feel as though i had known them for years. The rooms are spotless and the breakfasts were superb. The local pubs are only a short walk away, and there are various shops just across the street. I certainly intend to return next year.

Excellent location to explore Antrim county. Kenny and Mary go the extra mile to make you feel at home and the premises are spotless, roomy and everything is to hand. Breakfast was great and served at a time that suited us. Can't find anything to fault with the place. Thanks.

I have stayed in 100's of hotels and B & B's through my work, but Ken-Mar beats them all in every way. You are made to feel right at home the minute you meet Kenny. The rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished and kept immaculate. Mary's cooking is superb. Breakfast is first class, in fact everything about Ken-Mar is first class. Highly recommended for a visit

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent

Within moments of arriving at Ken-Mar you’re treated like a friend and not just ‘a customer’. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless and the little touches like providing cakes or biscuits daily, plus plenty of local travel information are appreciated. Although located a few minutes walk from the centre of Ballymoney, the room was so quiet you thought you were out in the country.

As for the breakfasts. Well, you can have anything you want from the fruit/cereal buffet, and Mary’s superbly cooked ‘Ulster Fry’ plus toast pretty much set us up for the day. Many of the large hotels with their multi-star ratings could learn a thing or two from Ken and Mary about how to provide an appetising breakfast.

With Wi-Fi, a flat screen TV, and really comfortable beds it was almost like being at home, and after three days we were sad to leave. We’ll be going back to Ken-Mar again for sure.
