I recently spent 11 days working in Bangor and was strongly advised to book into the Cairn Bay Lodge - you can't beat local know-how. It was an 11-day rest cure. A lovely double room ("Island View") with a large bay window looking out across the beach and bay. The cheery welcome I received from Chris set the mood for... More

We stayed here on Friday night past, and I cant recommend it highly enough. Chris and Jenny were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much bother. The room was bright and airy, clean and with a comfortable bed. The breakfast was also delicious and would be worth going back for alone!

Charming and quirky decor, a lovely room with super-comfy bed and a wonderful breakfast from a menu that would put top-class hotels to shame. Close to town, but situated on a beautiful bay, it's a terrific location too. This was a lucky choice for us and we'll definitely be back. Thank you!

After turning up without a booking the hosts were incredibly generous in accommodating me. They put me in the Snug, this had a very nice homely feel about it and was very well presented all round with good Internet connection (free) and nice snacks available (also free), including some awesome carrot cake outside the rooms. Any enquiry put to the... More

Just back from another great stay with Chris and Jenny on our trip home to Bangor from Scotland. Island View room has such a comfortable bed and a superb view over Ballyholme Bay. Breakfast is top class with fresh fruits and cereals and a cooked breakfast which cannot be bettered. Thanks again!

Really nice room, with great facilities! Hot chocolate and Tayto's as well as you usual tea and coffee. Lovely spacious bathroom - had a slight problem with the toilet, but let Chris know and it was sorted straight away. Really lovely location, just off the beach with a gorgeous view from our room. Bangor was much nicer than some of... More

This is the place to go. I would definitely recommend the superior rooms in order to enjoy the breathtaking sea view. I also have to say that I would travel to Cairn Bay Lodge even if it were just to have breakfast... this is always an incredible feast! Brilliant location and very caring tenants!

We have stayed for one night in June this year. Just after arrival we regret why just one night. Everything we have liked: the location, the cozy room, the house with its many touches (it's like a museum!), the breakfast... just all! Thank you so much for devoting all your time to make our stay so enjoyable.

This was our first trip to Cairn Bay Lodge and it was highly recommended by family who had stayed there previously. My husband and I stayed in the Ballyhome Bay Suite, while our teenage daughters shared the Balcony Suite. From the moment of our arrival, we were swept away by the charm of the lodge and the hospitality of the... More

This was our 2nd visit to Cairn Bay, this time with our 9 month old son and as with last time it was great, the room was spacious with a stunning view out over the bay, plenty of room for the crib that was supplied and immaculately clean. The breakfast was superb and it was no trouble for them to... More
