We have just spent 10 nights in Ballymena at what would have to be the best B&B we have ever stayed at. After much long distance planning between Perth, Western Australia and Ballymena, Northern Ireland, we arrived in pouring rain, on the train from Belfast, with two gigantic bags. George was at the station to meet us, and from that... More

I travel a lot for work and the outstanding places to stay are those that make you welcome. Heather and George were absolutely excellent, and all the small treats made the business trip into a holiday. Cream tea on arrival, glass of wine after a long day at work. The most comfortable bed ever and a very decent hot shower.... More

We had a friend's wedding at Galgorm Manor - resort and spa - and in searching for accommodation we stumbled across Pinegrove lodge online. At first my partner and i were a little apprehensive about staying in a 'B&B" (aka someone's home, for example)…. although from moment we arrived there was something different about Pinegrove. The reception and warmth we... More

We were attending a wedding at the Galgorm and were unable to get booked into any of the nearby hotels as it was a last minute decision to stay over. After reading all the fantastic reviews we decided to book at the lovely Pinegrove Lodge. Heather could not have been more accommodating on the telephone. Upon arrival Heather and George... More

We were attending a wedding last weekend and reception was in Tullyglass Hotel. We were unable to get booked into the hotel but managed to get accommodation in Pinegrove Lodge. We got a really warm welcome from George and Heather and felt at home straight away. They could not have done more to make our stay comfortable. The bedrooms are... More

My children and I had already rented a house from George and Heather a year ago which was superb but not available this year. So in August 2013 we stayed instead at their bed and breakfast. We have never been so warmly welcomed. George and Heather could not do enough for us - nothing was too much to ask. The... More

George and Heather are the best hosts anyone could ask for. They are so welcoming and friendly. Heather is a first class cook. Her home made scones, jam and biscuits are exceptional which we enjoyed on arrival. It is undoubtly a 5* B & B. Pinegrove is very, very clean and very comfortable and cosy. George insisted he would drive... More
