Stayed with family in two separate rooms and loved it. Pauline cannot do enough and breakfast was excellent. Very tasty with the personal touch and a wonderful view of the water. Rooms are excellent and very comfortable.

Nice bed and breakfast close to the waterfront, to the port and the center of town. Very friendly staff and good service. We were there for a conference and enjoyed being able to retire here for the night. My place to stay in Bangor.

It was good to get your review and see that you had decided that 'this was your place to stay in Bangor' - we look forward to seeing you next time - perhaps for a holiday rather than just business? Pauline More

Pauline went above and beyond to give us a wonderful stay in Bangor. We arrived 12 days into a 3 week trip and were so happy when she offered to drop off and pick up our laundry (and even hung up some delicates to dry when I casually mentioned they might shrink!). As we were leaving for our day trip... More

Glad you enjoyed N. Ireland - specifically your stay with us. Hopefully the trip across the water was just as enjoyable and that you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. Perhaps you will decide to come back to us another time and maybe spend longer to enable yourselves to see even more of the country. Pauline More

Pauline's hospitality and beautiful accommodations make this seaside inn the place to stay while visiting Belfast and the surrounding Bangor area. Not only is it an easy hop on the train to see all of the sights in downtown Belfast, Pauline offers an insider's view of the must-see attractions and tips for a wonderful vacation in Northern Ireland.

Upon arrival at Hargreaves House in Bangor, I realized this seafront b&b is the perfect home base for day trips to Belfast and elsewhere in Northern Ireland. The highway system and train schedules make staying in Bangor easy. And Hargreaves central location in Bangor provides access to all of the amenities of a small town, such as restaurants and shops,... More

After having been fortunate enough to discover The Hargreaves House, and intending to stay a night or two, my wife and I moved in for an entire week. A week that could not have been enjoyed more. Pauline and Ambrose treated us as though we had been friends forever. Any questions that we had regarding local interesting sites, or history,... More
