Pauline was very welcoming on a rare sunny day (it's been a wet summer). We stayed on the ground floor right beside the breakfast room; it was lovely and cozy with a small en-suite bathroom that met our needs. Pauline made sure that we knew all of the best places to grab a bite to eat and provided a tasty... More

Hi - Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay here with us. I am so glad you were comfortable and enjoyed your breakfasts complete with the edible flowers! They do make it a bit different from the normal breakfast. The weather has improved very slightly from the time you were here - but not by much!!... More

As others have already noted, there really is nothing adverse to report about this little gem of a guest house, overlooking the bay. Pauline is a proprietress of some distinction, being business-like but friendly from booking right through to departure. There is virtually nothing she won't do to render one's stay more comfortable, and is justifiably proud of her policy... More

Pauline leaves no stone unturned to ensure that her guests are well served. She provides information and advice on local amenities, breakfast served in a room with a view on a pristine white table cloth. For this and her genuine kindness to her guests, I give Hargreaves House top rating

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.

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
