Greyabbey is one of the best places to stay in and around Belfast and Strangford lough. Being originally from Northern Ireland, I have travelled all over ireland for the past 15 years staying mostly in Bed and Breakfast. I was fortunate enough to stay at the Retreat with my wife and I will tell you, it is one of the best I have ever stayed at. B&Bs are all different, but this one has everything you could ask/hope for. Quite location, great surroundings, great house, privacy, great, large, modern room.
The attention to detail was great. Nice linens, great bed, tv/dvd player and movies, large bathroom, fruit basket, bottled water, snacks, fresh milk. Absolutely great. You just don't find this degree of caring at most B&Bs.
The owners really treat you like a friend and really go out of their way to make you feel at home. They don't seem like someone who has been doing this for 20 years and treats you like just another guest. They will crack a beer with you and have a laugh.
The breakfast room and breakfast was superb. They do not cheap out and provide you with great quality products and variety. You will be spoiled. We travelled on to other B&B's and right away you can see the difference.
I highly recommend this place, it is worth every penny.
Great time. Thanks a lot guys.
