“Lovely rooms with great facilities. Attentive hostess and gorgeous breakfast.”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

A treat after a long day driving from Belfast and visiting the Giant's Causeway and Carrick-a-Rede bridge. Lovely greeting by the hostess Rosie. Beautiful room decorated with a great attention to detail and including a well-appointed bathroom both spotless. Comfortable beds--we slept very well. We did not travel in to the town of Portstewart as we were tired after a long day so went to the restaurant across the street and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. Wonderful breakfast in the morning with lots of choice and freshly prepared. Would not hesitate to recommend or stay again in the future. Great value for the price.

Room Tip: We were facing the road and had the windows open, the noise was not a concern.

I stayed here for around 19 weeks with 2 other PGCE students from September 2011 to May 2012 and it was quite simply excellent! The room was always clean, homely and full of all the modcons you could possibly need. Rosie is always welcoming and friendly and was so kind to us throughout the year. We were always welcomed with a smile and made to feel at home and Rosie and Pauline took great care of all three of us. I would recommend any post-primary PGCE student to stay here while at Uni in Coleraine, it is the perfect place and an absolute paradise, you will not find a kinder owner or as stylish and modern B&B anywhere!

Room Tip: Room 5 was my favourite but all the rooms are excellent!

Very friendly and most welcoming, Found it on Tripadvisor and would agree with many of the reviews, a little expensive but we were there during the Irish Open Golf Competition. Excellent Breakfast.

Took my mum and Dad to this B&B back in May. It is such a beautiful place with lovely decor, very clean, spacious and extremely friendly people who just make your stay worthwhile. Nothing was too much bother to them. Thank you Rosie for being such a lovely host.

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!!
