We were made very welcome at this classy B&B. The owners were thoughtful and rooms very well equipped and beautifully decorated. Our classic cars just about fitted into the car park and the proprietors ensured that we were happy with every aspect of the B&B. Breakfast was excellent and presented beautifully. We highly recommend this little B&B for anyone passing... More

The owners are really caring for their guests. We were given good advice about places where to go for eating, what could be seen, etc. It is a perfect place to stay, having excellent location for going to town as well as to harbour. The room was clean and the breakfast was absolutely superb.

I stayed at Derrin Guest House one night after a long day travelling. Felt very welcomed and found the room to be spotless, nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed to fall into exhausted. Would like to see more of Larne next time: it is a nice wee town. Found a good restaurant nearby. Breakfast was marvellous - my favourite... More

Haven't always had a good experience of bed and breakfast but this was really really good. Needed an overnight before a ferry to Scotland with my partner and dog. Booked this for one night excellent value at £65 - worth more in my opinion. Lovely welcome from Ivy one of the owners who showed us to a nicely decorated ensuite... More

Top marks to Ivy and Siebe for an excellent friendly B&B. We stayed for 4 nights and found the guest house well appointed and clean and tidy. Great breakfast with plenty of variation - salmon and scrambled eggs especially appreciated

I can't fault this B&B for it's cleanliness or breakfast, in fact if my review was on that it would have top marks. I am writing this to confirm that what Mrs Gouck says in her review is true! My husband and myself were in the same group, and stayed there for 2 nights, and to be honest it was... More

We only stayed one night. But it was the perfect starting point for the Antrim Coast Road. The accommodation were excellent as well as the cost. The GPS took us straight to it and downtown with a couple of good restaurants was an easy walk. We recommend this B&B and would stay here again.

We recently stayed at the b&b. The b&b is in an old house but with all modern facilities. However, the beds were too soft. I think we are used to firm mattress. The breakfast was also great. But it would be helpful if there was a menu so we know all the choices offered. Lot of places that we stayed... More

Myself and a group of 9 friends recently visited this B&B with a age group of 11-57, we stayed here for 2 nights, the B&B was clean and tidy it was in fact a lovely B&B, the only bad bit of the B&B was that we were told that the lounge area closed at 11pm at night, we obliged on... More

Thank you for saying that we have a lovely clean and tidy B&B. We close our guest lounge at 11 pm at night as it is under one of the family rooms which was occupied on the night of your stay. We explained this to you and you finally vacated the lounge at 11.30 pm. The next day you asked... More
