Beautiful Rooms, loverly hosts, fantastic Breakfast and fabulous location over looking the Bay, also fresh cakes baked every day to have with afternoon tea if you want, just help yourself at no extra cost! Near to Bangor centre what more does one need?

This B&B is in excellent location for visiting Bangor. 5 minute drive to town center. The breakfast was excellent. We had reserved the Garden Suite for 2 nights. Received email the day before, on the way to the airport, that the manager had overlooked another reservation for that room, and was only able to "offer" us one night's stay. That... More

I stayed at The Cairn Bay Lodge for one night whilst on business, the location is perfect, right on the beach. I was met by Chris who was extremely friendly and offered me a double room even though I had only booked (and paid) for a single. The room was very clean and nicely appointed with tea, coffee and cake... More

We had a very relaxed comfortable stay in the attic flat, delicious breakfast, plentiful tea And cakes. Plus a very good honesty bar. Cafe opening too. I would thoroughly recommend. Great sea views and will return.

It has been 10 years since we visited Bangor and this was our fourth time at Cairn Bay Lodge. Chris and Jenny haven't aged and neither has their great service and breakfast feast. We are back in Bangor next year and will book here earlier enough to get our favourite room.

Stayed here on Saturday the 23rd May, we were put in the snug room, small room with one chair, sockets at carpet level in behind table and television stand and difficult to reach, shower door faulty and difficult to close, Chris said it had just happened that morning, cooked breakfast very disappointing, I was asked if I would like sausage...

It's always so gratifying when you come across a place that's willing to add those little touches that sets them apart from the rest. For Cairn Bay Lodge and for our visit it was : fresh milk being available from a fridge on the landing at all times; the willingness of the owners to have a very early breakfast buffet... More

Rarely do I give negative comments but unfortunately after one of two nights stay ruined by a kids party/sleep-over then you lose your sense of humour. Yes, it is a wonderful B&B, great breakfast and charming and friendly hosts, great views, just like everyone else says, but why or why then let your kids run riot all night above all... More

We took the kids to cairn bay for an overnight stay during the Easter holidays. The children love it when we go for breakfast & have been asking to stay over for a while. We came away feeling totally refreshed. The kids had a ball, we played on the beach, played with the dogs in the garden, chilled out in... More

I have stayed in many a B&B in my time, this one will stick in my mind forever. My brothers and dad stayed here last weekend on Sunday night. On entering this incredible arts and crafts house, with a gorgeous wooden paneled hall, it was a delight to meet the lovely Chris and get a tour of all the interestingly... More
