“Deeply Dissappointed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2007

I wanted to bk a B&B for a wkend for myself and my boyfriend by the sea. After browsing the various Northern Ireland tourism websites, i settled on Ardaghmore B&B in Ballycastle, NI.
I went to their website and was suitably impressed with the images on it , so on the basis of this i telephoned the landlady, Jenny on the sunday afternoon and bkd a rm for the following saturday night, for a 1 night stay.
I was told that i would be staying in room 3, a large rm with a bay window and wonderful views.
On arrival at the B&B the following saturday, we were left standing on the doorstep, after the door was answered by a teenage boy. When we were eventually invited in we were met by a dark, cluttered hallway, lots of trainers and hurley bats and tennis rackets lying around, as well as general clutter. On top of this there was an agressive dog,in the kitchen, whose smell lingered through the whole B&B!
We were taken upstairs to our room and were so disappointed by what we saw. The images on the website couldnt have been more misleading! The cream carpet was grubby and stained, the room was small, a double bed dominated the whole room. There was no bay window and the window there was, was totally obscured by an unasked for additional single bed, making it impossible to see the view!
The duvet cover was faded and dated, and the furniture was mismash in style, with nothing matching. At a glance it looked like staying in a rundown hostel! The ensuite bathroom was dated as well, frayed towels etc, as well as poor window coverings!
The website showed a beautiful dining rm, this was non existant as well, in its place lay a disused room that looked like it had been stripped for redecorating, then left untouched!
In short the whole experience was like that of renting a spare room in a messy chaotic, family house, not at all a relaxing or welcoming atmosphere for guests.
Overall a grave disappointment, we sat down in the room for 10 minutes to decide how to salvage our weekend. We ended up leaving, the only saving grace was we had paid no money up front. I just felt i had to let others know the real story of Ardaghmore B&B, Ballycastle, so they too wont have their weekends/holidays ruined!
