“Lovely Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in July. It is in a lovely situation near Pickie Play Area. Just a few minutes walk in to town centre. We had a front room with a splendid sea view. The room was lovely and clean, had a large flat screen TV. Breakfast was very good, served by very friendly staff. We would come again. Could park just at the front of Guest House. Lovely quiet street.

Visited here in August 2013 and was genuinely shocked at the value for money. Wasn't expecting much but would easily be prepared to pay £60-£70 for the quality of service we received. Staff are a credit to the house and could not be more helpful and the breakfast was amazing. Only trouble was the twin room has a conjoining room and door and we could hear the person in the other room breathing but really wasn't a massive issue. Could not be more satisfied with my stay to be honest.

Room Tip: Can only talk from experience so if we were booking again we would book a double room rather than a...

We had come over for a wedding nearby. What a pleasant B&B with a really peaceful atmosphere. Really great sized room with all mod cons and a good sized flat screen TV. But wow what an amazing view of the marina, you could of been in the south of France or Miami! The staff were really helpful and caring. The breakfast was a real quality start to the day. Thank you for making our trip to Ireland so wonderfully memorable

Very clean. The location here was very good. Close to downtown and also to walking along the shore. There is a beautiful children's park nearby. Friendly with a good breakfast. Our room was small but very clean and more than adequate

Stayed here in July 2013, got a good rate and where very happy with the B+B. The rooms were modern and we had a front room looking over the Marina, Breakfast was good Was a few minutes walk from the town centre but still located on a very quiet street with no noise at night!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the front rooms.

our stay in the Astala guest house in Bangor was most enjoyable. Very comfortable accommodation overlooking the marina. Staff were very helpful and obliging. Breakfast was excellent. Room was spacious and clean. Overall was a very enjoyable experience. Rachelle, the manager was extremely helpful and accommodating.
Our thanks to all concerned. We look forward to returning again next year.
John and Sheila,

Astala Guest House is perfectly maintained, quiet and our twin room was large with a handicap accessible bath, which we did not need but gave extra room. A real plus, this B&B has an elevator which after carrying bags up and down stairs all over Ireland, was much appreciated. The location by the Harbor was great and an easy walk to many restaurants and bars.

Rachelle was ever so helpful. We had to get a very early start in the morning (before breakfast was served) and she insisted on giving us snacks for our room to have with coffee or tea in the morning. This is truly a good value and lovely residence.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have a nice view of the Harbor.
