Pauline was great and knew everything we asked, and advised us on lots of things , and it was never too much trouble for her ,and most of the time arranged it for us. The room was clean and tidy at all times. Food was great ,and even did our breakfast when we were late on one occasion. The location was perfect and had everything close by. I would recommend it to anyone and will use paulines b&b in the very near future “thanx for making our stay very simple

Stayed one night at Hargreaves House last weekend, we completely enjoyed our brief stay! Everything was just perfect, the breakfast was wonderful, our room was small but grand, Pauline pays attention to all details to make your stay tops! "Aunty" Pauline was very nice, kind and thoughtful, she even rode us with a wee bit in our car to guide us out of town...We would highly recommend her B and B to everyone staying just a few miles outside of Belfast (don't forget to take Susie Millar's Belfast tour). The only bummer was that the TSA took my two homemade jelly with whisky jars from my backpack in LA on the way home! I was really looking forward to having a bit of Ireland back home - thanks for all Pauline!!!! Allen & Janet

Hi - Glad you made it home safely but sorry you had your whiskey marmalade taken from you! Taking steps to sort that out! Luckily we have some more guests in at the moment from the US. Anyway, perhaps you will be able to stay longer next time you visit Ireland? One night just isn't long enough.

The Hargreaves House ist a very nice bed and breakfast with a brilliant hostel warden called Pauline. She was very nice, courteous and supporting. The rooms are very individual personally. Breakfast and breakfasttime is requiring by the guest.

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Wir waren und sind noch immer kolossal begeistert.

Liebe Grüße aus Rostock, Leipzig und Potsdam

Hallo - Thank you for taking the time to write about us after your very successful stay for the World Police and Fire Games. It was lovely to meet you all and follow your successes in the new Olympic pool here in Bangor. I wish you well at the next Games.

A wonderful location on the sea front only minutes from the town centre. This BnB gave us everything we needed. From before even arriving Pauline, the most lovely host, arranged taxis for the weekend and even a hair appointment for my girlfriend before the wedding we were in Bangor for.

The room we stayed in was very comfortable, clean, and included everything we needed. Breakfast was great and couldn't have asked for anything more.

Make sure you stay at this BnB when you stay in Bangor - we will again.

A wonderful stay - thank you Pauline!!

Me and my Dad stay here almost every time we're in Bangor, we always get the same room booked and it is amazing!
Pauline is very nice and her breakfast is nice, even though I don't eat a lot :(

The best host..... Pauline. She will do anything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. There is no other choice you want to make for accommodation in Belfast other than Hargreaves House. Beautiful setting right on the way. Sit in the sun and watch the world go by.

As usual my stay in Hargreaves House was absolutely fantastic and a big thank you to Pauline. I stay in Hargreaves House because the beds are so comfy, you get lovely towels and gowns and the breakfasts are fab. Pauline really puts herself out to make what you want and very happy to cater for special dietary needs. Likewise, with her wealth of local knowledge Pauline found and booked tables in various restaurants in the evening. Not an easy job in peak season when the sun is shining! Hargreaves is in the perfect position, near enough to Bangor to walk home after a lovely night on the town but far enough to wake up to a lovely sea view. Every morning I enjoyed getting up and going for a walk along the beach before breakfast. At Hargreaves you feel very safe and would definitely recommend for a female staying on her own. I was due to stay there on my own and in the end my sister joined me as my birthday present to her. She loved it. Finally, the value is exceptional and you feel like you should be paying more! Cant recommend it enough, best B&B in Bangor!

Room Tip: They're all great...
