California Lodge
Ranked #11 of 16 Portstewart B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Spent one night in this B&B. Very clean but overpriced for a single room - wasn't aware that it was more expensive on a Saturday night. Room was small with a sloped ceiling. No plug near the mirror for the hair dryer!!! Free parking near the door. No melon, grapefruit or prunes at breakfast :-( but good variety of cereals.

Never stayed in a B&B before but was pleasantly surprised. From arrival to departure I had no complaints. Lovely, cosy room, clean towels daily, fabulous breakfasts, free parking, helpful staff. We will be back in the autumn. Book now - you won't be dissappointed!!

I had never stayed in a B&B before and was pleasantly surprised by our stay at Meadowpark lodge. Rosie was really helpful and friendly, we had an en-suite room, very warm, cosy, clean and comfortable. Full Irish breakfast next morning was cooked to perfection. It was perfect for us after a long day of touring the coast - we had privacy, felt secure and had the freedom to come and go as we pleased - would definitely stay again.

We had a lovely time staying at Meadowpark Lodge, food was excellent, room and en-suite were spotless, very clean and welcoming, we would certainly go back again as it was very peaceful and relaxing with a very friendly atmosphere, hostess was a lovely lady and i would recommend Meadowpark Lodge to young and old.
The only down side was we eventually had to go home...
It was home from home and we will certainly be going back...

Room Tip: All the rooms were excellent so you will be spoilt for choice..

we stayed here for 3 nights when guests at a wedding in the town. The wedding was grand by the way and the Meadowpark was just as good. Facilities were very comfortable and the breakfasts were excellant with good range of choices including full Irish, continental and others (decision required the night before). We missed our first night booking due to a domestic upset and were not charged for this.

Room cleaning worked unobtrousively around our odd comings and goings as set by the marriage agenda. We'd not waste any time looking for other accommodation should we be in Port Stewart again.

Stayed here for two nights, its never a good sign when the plants at the front door are dead! On arrival the host did not introduce herself and there was NO effort made to communicate with us at any point in our stay. The room was basic and shabby with damaged decor and worn and badly marked carpet to mention a few. The bed was comfortable but there was nowhere to sit.
Breakfast was good but there was no atmoshere in the house. We have stayed many times in various places in the north coast and felt this was over priced. We will not be back as I am sure you have gathered.

We stayed here for two nights in June and we wish that we had had time to stay longer. Everything was immaculately clean and Rosie was very welcoming and helpful. Excellent breakfast menu and all beautifully prepared and served. Plenty of off-street parking in a quiet but very accessible area and very convenient for reaching most of western and central Northern Ireland and Donegal. The Causeway Coast is almost too beautiful for words and the whole of the region is so varied and beautiful.
A little bit pricey - but a very enjoyable place to stay. We would use it again.
