Positive Reviews

Pleasant town centre location near the beach

Offering easy pedestrian access to beaches, town centre shops, the railway station and various dining options, this bed and breakfast won praise from reviewers for its convenient location in the picturesque heart of Portrush. For motorists, there was also straightforward access to sights and attractions along the County Antrim coast.

Praise for rooms with views

Stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and Portrush Harbour were admired by guests in certain rooms. There was also praise for the comfy beds. Reviewers largely said the rooms were clean and tidy, although some travellers were critical of the en suite shower rooms for being quite small.

Popular breakfast and welcoming hosts

Many reviewers said they experienced a friendly welcome from pleasant and obliging hosts who made guests feel right at home. Diners frequently said they were well-fed in the mornings, enjoying the plentiful and well-cooked Irish breakfast.

Negative Reviews

Limited free Wi-Fi access

Although travellers appreciated the availability of free Wi-Fi access in public areas of this property, it disappointed some reviewers that the signal didn't cover all the guest rooms.

Occasional cleanliness and maintenance issues

Maintenance issues like occasionally weak water pressure and tired-looking decor were noted by critics in some rooms. Cleanliness standards also attracted occasional criticism. Reported issues included dirty windows, stained towels, inadequately cleaned bathrooms and build-ups of hair and dust.

Thin walls blamed for occasional noisy nights

Plenty of visitors reported that they enjoyed a peaceful night's sleep at this property. However, light sleepers occasionally had their rest interrupted and blamed thin walls for enabling sound from adjacent rooms to travel too easily to other parts of the accommodation.
