“Sean is excellent”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in September 2013. Sean welcomed us when we arrived - make sure you budget in some time to talk to Sean because he certainly has the gift of gab! He is a wealth of information about Belfast and the North in general. He is an excellent host - he even drove us to the city and showed us around on the way! The room we had was spacious and clean. The bathroom was a bit small but generally okay. The living room and dining room on the first floor were very nice and the breakfast that Sean made was delicious.

Nice wee BnB located not too far away from the city, only a 6 pound taxi fare.. which was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle but not isolated in thye slightest, it sits in a nice suburb with shops and restaurants. Excellent host , lovely breakfast, comfortable room.. it was spot on :-)

In Sept. my wife and I stayed with Sean at his home in Belfast for two days. Would definitely recommend the Ardmore Guesthouse,,, it is a 5 minute walk to the train station and only 15 minutes to down town[20 to the Titanic Exhibit]. Sean will share his wealth of knowledge about Belfast over a glass of wine. If you have the time enjoy a pizza at his restaraunt downtown. You will arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. Dennis and Lynn Parsons

Room Tip: Ardmore house is in a residential neighborhood. all bedrooms face a quiet back yard

We stayed here on 4th December, and arrived and were met by Sean, who told us we had the whole house to ourselves. It was huge! He gave us some great tips on where to eat (one of which being his own pizza place Opera which was great), along with some places to listen to music and watch football, he was really reallh helpful. The room itself was huge, and was maybe a littlt too warm in the evening whilst the bathroom id imagine some people would find to small but for 1 night for us it was fine. Location wise 20 mins to centre of Belfast and then £5.50 in tax back. All in all good value for the price we paid.

Reviewed 9 October 2012

After reading the reviews I was very much looking forward to our stay at Ardmore but sadly I don't feel it lived up to its excellent reviews.

The room was spacious and the bed was very comfy but the bathroom was small, slightly grubby and the bath towels we very small. There were shampoo sachets provided. Unfortunately our shower head didn't stay in the holder so we had to hold it up with one arm whilst showering. The TV in the room did not work, it came on and then zoned out for a bit and then came on again and off etc. These two points, I am sure would have been fixed but we were only there for one night and so did not raise them.

Sean, the host, was lovely. Very welcoming and informative and a true credit to the B&B. He cooked breakfast at our requested time and it was nice.

The B&B is located 300 meters from Finaghy Train Station which is just £2.60 return to Belfast, its also about £7 taxi journey to Belfast.

We paid £50 for the night, which feel is reasonable. Unfortunately the reviews lead me to believe I had found a real gem at a bargain price and next time I would more than likely book a Belfast town centre hotel for around £15 more.

Two enjoyable and comfortable nights in Ardmore Guesthouse. The service was everything we could wish for, room was lovely and spacious, en-suite was all we needed. Breakfast was tailored to our needs (I'm a vegan and was so happy that I was catered for), on time and tasty! Sean was incredibly friendly and helpful, and felt more like a friend. Location was great and value for money - I couldn't have asked for more.
If you want to ensure a great stay close to Belfast city centre, Ardmore is the place to go.

As soon as we arrived the owner sean was so welcoming, it was as if we had known him for years! he gave us a tour of where all the facilities where and then we where guided to our room. It was a very spacious room, lovely decor which included a plush bed and ensuite bathroom. All you could wish for! On arrival we where talking to Sean about transport he couldn't do enough for you as once we had told him where we were going in Belfast, he took us there, wouldnt take no for an answer

The next day we had the most lovely breakfast, everything you could wish for on a plate. The most perfect weekend stay away yet! Would definately stay here again, in a heartbeat!!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, you can't hear anything. I thought the night we stayed we were the...
