These guys were just great. Aside from a beautiful home and surroundings, a perfect place. We had run into some travel glitches. Without even being asked our host and hostess jumped on their computers and researched information for us. Our anxiety level was up at one point, but Elaine and Mannix took every opportunity to find the information we needed.... More

Accommodations were excellent, rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was excellent, close to downtown Belfast. Hosts were gone on vacation, but their did an excellent job in their absence. Would recommended everyone to stay at this B&B. We would stay there again.

The b&b is extremely nice: the living room, the breakfast room and the rooms are beautiful, clean and well equipped. The breakfast was great: loti of foods and the typicalIrish breakfast!! The owners are really friendly and welcoming. Great!

Enjoyable stay here at Somerton House, late check in not a problem. The twin loft room we booked was spacious for 2 people with ensuite bathroom, cozy beds, plenty of room to hang cloths and store bags. Only grip was the shower, it wasn't very powerful other than that our room was perfect. WIFI throughout the house included in the... More

Stayed here last weekend to attend an event, arrived in the early afternoon and the room was all ready to go, unusual as most places expect you later but we were thrilled to be able to settle in and leave our bags before exploring Belfast. We were met at the door by a very helpful man, Mannix I think who... More

You can book here with confidence. It's decent value for the standards offered. Makki is a decent host and makes the effort to converse with every guest. The ensuite double room is large with period features and décor. The bathroom itself is a bit small, but functional none the less. Parking is easy on the street. One neat touch is... More

I stayed here at the end of my round Ireland cycle trip and chose this bnb due to its close proximity to the ferry port. Mannix was extremely helpful and knowledgeable of the local area. They accommodate my bike securely in their locked shed. The room was of a high standard, flat screen TV, tea and coffee. I chose a... More

We stayed here for two nights during our trip in Ireland and WOW!!! The House seems a movie set, it's a old Victorian house. Our room was little but the view very suggestive, above all during the sunrise :) We had the bathroom ensuite, very small and the ceiling was low but it's not important, it's a ancient house. A...

Somerton House is in a nice, quiet neighbourhood, away from the hustle/bustle of Belfast. As well, the Lancaster Inn is very close by, with a nice pub/restaurant. The best thing about Somerton House's location is the easy access to public transit -- it's far nicer to enjoy the sights of Belfast's downtown by taking transit, than trying to drive oneself....
