Our trip from south wales was pretty stressful, but the guest house was'nt far from belfast city airport, and easily accessed, Jenny and Ann were very friendly and helpfull and made us feel at home with nothing being too much trouble. We really enjoyed our three nights, the breakfasts were excellent and our room was spacious and comfortable

When arranging our trip to Bangor we spoke to Jenny, she was very helpful and made the booking very easy, even though we had a large number of people coming to stay.

On arrival Jenny was there to greet us and showed everyone to their rooms, the rooms were very clean and gave you the impression that this is not just an ordinary guesthouse. Tastefully decorated, tea & coffee facilities, hair dryer and on suite etc... I was very pleased.

The location is excellent due to it being a five minute walk into the town centre and also easy to remember where it is. i.e. one straight road into town. Most of the group that travelled with me had never been to Bangor before and they never had any problems finding it at the end of the night.

Breakfast in the morning was also great. Fresh juices, water, milk, tea coffee, good selection of cerials, toast and to polish it all off, an Ulster fry.

All the staff were hard working and very welcoming.. Will definitely be back!

We stayed in ths guesthouse over the New Year Holiday as we were at a party locally. The guesthouse is located a few minutes walk from the town centre so is really central. The pictures of their bedrooms on their website looked lovely and spacious. The reality was somewhat different. According to our booking reference we had been allocated a double superior room. If the room we had was superior my mind boggles at what standard looks like. Our room consisted of two single beds pushed together. The bed linen was too small for the bed so that when we were in bed the covers did not drape over the sides as they should. (incidentially we are very normal in size). The other bizzare thing was that one of the pillow cases had a healthcare logo stamped on it, saying it was the property of some service or other. Perhaps they use a commerical laundry service and theirs got mixed up but even so it was hard not to miss. The bed linen was crisp and white and immaculately smooth.The room was so small that we could literally touch the side walls when lying in bed. There were no curtains just basic white blackout roller blinds. There was one wardrobe that could only be partially opened as the bed was in the way. The wardrobe contained a few mismatched hangers probably left behind by other guests. there was no dresser or other surface. One beside locker and a strange piece of bare wood attached to the wall about 1ft from the floor. The main light bulb was broken and the lady who showed us to the room said she would come back with a replacment but she never did. The only chair in the room was like something from a junk shop - imagine a kitchen chair circa 1920. The bathroom had no blind and given that the sink was positioned at the window led us to feel rather uncomfortable. There was also a chair in the bathroom that was identical to the one in the bedroom. There was a small piece of previously used soap on the side of the sink and 1 plastic disposable cup. The towels were soft and in excellent condition. The hotel has steps leading up to it. When we were leaving to go to our party we couldn't help but comment that there was no lighiting on the steps and it was quite dangerous. We noticed the following morning that there was one light fitting but either the bulb had blown or it was not turned on. Breakfast is served in a spacious dining room and consists of the usual fare - cereal, toast, fried breakfast etc. The breakfast was good and well presented. We paid £65.00 for which, based on the pictures on the website, we felt was good value for money. However having been there we feel it was too expensive for what was a very basic room. A local hotel on the seafront had a room avaiable for only £10.00 more with all the added extras that a hotel provides. We chose Ennislare because it looked a similar standard and it was only for one night. We were very disappointed.

The Ennislare Guest House is in a great location and within easy walking distance of Bangors seafront. Private secure parking also helps in a busy town were parking can be difficult. It is not a hotel however but a lovely guest house. If you are expecting a sea view you may need binochulars but everything else about the guest house is superb. The Bedroom i stayed in was bright and spacious, tastefully decorated and very clean. There is also a good sized kitchen and lounge for residents to use. I met Jenny who was very accommodating and helpful. Would have liked to stay longer!

A very clean and bright B&B with very friendly and helpful staff, who do all they can to ensure your stay is enjoyable. A choice of breakfasts to 'set you up for the day' is freshly cooked with no waiting around. The room was spacious and comfortable and ours had a sea view and en suite. This B&B is just about 3 minutes walk away from the sea and the impressive harbour and coastal walk. It is also very close to the shopping centre and train station. We loved our stay there and would recommend it without hesitancy.

I travelled with my partner and my sister and her husband for a weekend stay to Ennislare guest house. We had a really warm welcome by Jenny. Our room was lovely, very clean and had everything you need for your stay. Breakfast was lovely and Ann the owner was also very friendly and welcoming. I would highly reccomend this place if your planning to stay in Bangor. This is the first time I have ever wrote a review, I feel the Ennislare is worth it and we really could`nt have a nicer time thanks to Jenny and her hospitality. We hope to get back again soon.
