“Wish we could stay longer”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our holiday in UK and Ireland. Colette and Burt welcomed us as strangers into their home and really made us feel as if it were our home as well. Returning after a long day sightseeing we returned to coffee and a fire to heat up next to. Colette's traditional breakfast is absolutely scrumptious and we enjoyed it against a backdrop of a snow-covered Knocklayde mountain. The quad room was big enough for the four of us and our luggage, with a private bathroom directly across the hallway. The title says it all, wish we could stay longer!

Colette & her family are supremely friendly & welcoming. Their hospitality was excellent and their breakfast was absolutely delicious. Try the scrambled eggs they are very fresh as they are acquired locally.

My family and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Carnately Lodge. The owners made us so welcome; we wished our stay could have been longer. Colette is an incredible cook; breakfast was so good and plentiful. Our son was not feeling the best and Colette went out of her way to make sure he was as comfortable as could be. The Lodge is in a beautiful setting; it is very quiet at night. It is not far from town, and very close to all of the sites along the Giant's Causeway route. We had a triple room for our sons which was spacious enough, and the grand bedroom was more than enough room for two. Both rooms, the bathrooms; everything was spotlessly clean. There is ample room to park in the rear of the lodge, and is fairly easy to find. I am positive anyone staying here will not regret it.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Carnately Lodge and would highly recommend it to other travellers. The rooms were clean, comfortably sized and tastefully decorated. I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable when I arrived. The owners were friendly and there was a lovely relaxing atmosphere in the B&B. The cooked breakfast in the morning was delicious. I could not say enough good things about Carnately Lodge and I have already booked to stay again in April

Had a brilliant stay in this b&b; The place was immaculate, had a lovely homely feel to it and the bed was so comfortable. The owners were very friendly and invited us into the livingroom 2 relax infront of the fire. I would give the food a five star rating, it was delicious and well presented. I would recommend this b&b to anyone who enjoys comfort, good food and a friendly service. I can't wait 2 go back again in February. :-)

Had a fantastic stay - couldn't have been made more welcome. Will definitely be back here when staying on business and pleasure. The rooms are large, well equipped and comfortable and the food was brilliant.
