My partner and I were moving house and needed somewhere to stay for one night locally. We found this and what a find it was. The lady was so helpful when we phoned and even though we were arriving after 10 she was so accommodating for us. We walked in and were astounded with the place it was absolutely beautiful... More

Although I am originally not too far from the Birches Guest Lodge, my husband and I returned home for a quick holiday and not wanting to impose on friends or family, we decided to stay for two nights. The room was immaculately presented and the bathroom was very modern and spacious. Since it was late November, the place was decorated... More

Mary and the staff bent over backwards to cater for our family group of 8. Not my first stay so I already rated highly but not at all surprised that ALL our group loved the place. (scratching my head at the negative reviews - nonsense). Top class establishment

This is simply a fantastic place to stay. We had no trouble finding the Birches even though it is in a rural location. Our room was very spacious with an enormous, extremely modern bathroom which was spotlessly clean and most importantly the bed was very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and breakfast was wonderful. We stayed in... More

The room was very clean and comfortable. the accommodation is advertised on the website as a hotel but it is a B&B with no bar or restaurant. They advertise free breakfast but they asked us to pay for the breakfast in cash before we left

The rooms were very comfortable with a great shower. Wifi works very good everywhere including the bedrooms. The breakfast was made to order and everything was delicious. There was... More

This is a beautifully furnished and well-kept guest house. Though a bit 'out of the way', it is near the M1, which made it very convenient for getting to Belfast the next day. Arriving after 8 pm, our host, Mary, made sure we got a good meal in a restaurant in nearby Portadown. The continental breakfast (included in the basic... More

We go over to Northern Ireland on a regular basis and usually stay with family, but this time we had our young granddaughter with us and decided to book into somewhere. We originally chose the Birches Guest Lodge because of it's convenient location just of J11 on M1 but I have to say that we got much more than we... More

Found this wonderful Lodge by mistake when looking for another B+B we used previously. The reviews looked fantastic so we decided to give it a go for a 3 night stay visiting relatives. What a great decision everything about the place is 5 star+, the house and rooms are immaculate, the staff very helpful and Mary Kennedy who I booked... More
