After thoroughly enjoying my first stay, I returned with a couple of friends from London. We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Carnately Lodge. The hosts were welcoming and friendly. The cooked breakfast was excellent. I would definitely recommend Carnately Lodge as a fantastic place to stay in Ballycastle.

On our trip to Ireland we decided to see the Causeway Coast. As there was so much to see we decided to spend the night near by. We were recommended to stay in Carnately Lodge by a local. We were surely not disappointed, Colette and Burt were so helpful, they both gave us information on other tourist sites which we were not aware of. They checked us into a spacious bedroom on the ground floor with ensuite and TV etc. We were treated the following morning to a full Irish breakfast. It was well presented and cooked to perfection. This was accompanied with as much fresh fruit, cereal, toast plus tea/ coffee as we wanted. Colette even did our washing without charge and asked us if we required a packed lunch for the day ahead. I could not speak highly enough about the kindness shown to us. We will definately return again soon.

The hostess is very nice and the rooms are very comfortable and welcoming. The full breakfast is LARGE - come hungry! For the family room, the bath is private, but across the hall. Bathrobes are provided.

After carefully planning our N.Ireland trip we stayed in some wonderful accommodation until we arrived at Carnetely Lodge. We arrived unexpected as we just called in after seeing the no vacancy sign. An abrupt man came to the door and asked what we wanted. We politely requested for a double room. This man then scratched his baldy head and said "Oh if you wait a few minutes the wife and I will give you our bed and we will have to sleep in the garage as we are fully booked.We said we didn't want to cause them any inconvenience and said we would go else where. This man who we now know to be Burt said, "Look you are here now so you are staying now simple as. We never turn trade away as we need it all".
After being shown into a small lounge we were eventually given a room which was rather small at the back of the house. It had a communal bathroom and was not private at all. All the house traffic came past our door. We didn't feel at ease in this house. Breakfast the next day was a hotch potch. Everything was out of the local EuroSpar as we saw Burt bringing in the provisions the next morning. Poor quality, poorly cooked, poor service. Will not be back and could not recommend it at all. Burt by name and Burt by name.

This review can only be described as suspicious and fictitious .....We always strive to be as welcoming and friendly as possible in a professional manner that earns us our fitting place in Ballycastle as a very popular 5 Star B&B....This claim is further supported by all our previous customers comments on Trip advisor who clearly gave glowing Reports of our business and whom have re-booked for return accommodation for 2014....
If this is a genuine review I can only apologise on behalf of Carnately Lodge for any upset that their stay with us has caused them........

We have now stayed here twice. The first time with my pregnant wife and 3 year old and we arrived late since we got delayed in Belfast, but when we arrived late on Saturday night, Collette and family were so welcoming and accomodating. The place is super charming and overall very nice. The breakfast the next morning was superb and we loved everything about it. They also give great recommendations on what to see and do around the area.

The second time I took my in-laws as were doing a Causeway Coast tour and we had another fantastic stay. Collette and Burt were very helpful in getting us a restaurant reservation in town on Saturday night. My in-laws loved their room, the breakfast, and overall stay and I would say the same.

We will continue to stay at the Carnately Lodge when we come up north and continue to recommend to family and friends.
