“A wonderfully relaxing 4 days in a wonderful cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our stay in Garden Lodge provided a perfect end to our first (but definitely not last!) holiday in Ulster.
John and Helen were ideal hosts.
The property was just the right size for us with all the mod cons we needed. It's in an ideal location for exploring many areas of Ulster.
We look forward to another visit in 2015 and I have already recommended it and passed on contact details to a friend.
Thank you John and Helen.

“Five Star all the way and great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Wonderful hosts in John and Helen. Accommodation was super clean and had everything we needed and we had more than enough room. Lovely touch in that Helen baked us wonderful scones which our three year old devoured. We were very comfortable and the garden was great for Fionn he had a ball. It is very private and we forgot there was a B&B attached it was that private. Helen and John are wonderful friendly welcoming hosts and we really enjoyed our three nigh stay. Great value for money you will no find better accommodation anywhere.

“Apartment above a garage”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

When we booked this, we where excited to get away for a break for a few days! On arrival the house looked beautiful, but we where disappointed to find that this "Lodge" was above the garage and didnt find a lot of room inside the bedrooms, bathroom etc as the roof slanted in there wasn't a lot of standing space near the beds etc. I read the tripadvisor reviews and everything was excellant so thats why I am leaving this review as i think it would be more fair to let people know exactly what the "Lodge" is like.

Inside everything was neat, tidy, clean and very nice.

To average it all up, it was a nice place but prob not worth the money per night for what you got at the place.

“Light, clean and comfortable accommodation set in beautiful garden with very friendly helpful owners.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2011 for a stay in July 2011

I found the accommodation really clean and bright with lovely comfortable beds. The garden area was lovely for relaxing, recliner chairs were provided. The location is very good, the stunning Antrim Coast, Bushmills Distillery, the River Bann and the beautiful Glens of Antrim are all within easy reach. There is so much to see and do in the area, one week was just not long enough, I will definitely be visiting again.
