The care taken by the staff to make my experience in Belfast wonderful was great. The location is fantastic for walking all around the city. The room is simple but has absolutely everything you need. Wifi worked well in the room and there was a tv to watch the World Cup on :) I arrived (a 1 mile walk from the central train station) and it was too early to check in. The gentleman on the desk said we could leave our bags and he would put them in the room as soon as it was ready. He then printed a map for me and marked the sights that I wanted to see. Breakfast was a lovely omlette and toast/cereal.
When I returned my bag was indeed in the room. I mentioned wanting to take a tour of the Giant's Causeway and he arranged everything for me. I was concerned about making it back in time to get to the airport for my flight but he had first hand (and correct) knowledge of the tour and airport transport. He phoned to arrange the tour, gave me candid information about the different tour companies and what would be the best value for money for what I wanted (timely, small group), advice on getting food before the ride because he knew the stops and food available at each. He arranged for me to be picked up at the hostel but dropped at the bus station so I could easily get to the airport. The bus driver was early getting there so the woman working in the morning helped me to quickly check out so that he didn't get annoyed :)
All in all a great B&B with a great location and top notch staff. I wholeheartedly recommend it!!
