“Will definitely be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and i stayed here on the last Sat October. We called on the off chance that they might have availability and were advised that the Lodge is under new management bed they had not planned to take bookings until the start of November but took us anyway. And we were so glad that they did! We had a lovely stay, the location is fantastic, rooms were lovely, ours was en suite (i think all the rooms are) and nothing was too much trouble for the lovely couple who run the lodge! I have paid more to stay in hotels in this area where the service and facilities have been nowhere near as good. We were offered a cup of tea on arrival which was just what we needed after a long journey. We had a good night's sleep in room number 4, the bed was SO comfy! And the breakfast was lovely, portions very generous! We are already planning to go back and stay for a few nights over the Christmas holidays, can't wait!

Booked this place that was advertised as a 4 STAR B&B. Not even fit to be ! STAR. The previous owners had departed and the new owners carrie on trading under the previous owners Standard.
What a failure, cold room, cheap beds, shabby towels and the breakfast was of the poorest quality imanigeable. What a fiasco. I suppose things can only better. Although I doubt it. Please remove all the pretence and be honest and reflect in your extortionate prices what you are really worth.

We reserved and paid well in advance. When we arrived in the evening after a long journey we were told in a rather unfriendly way that we could NOT stay because of unfortunate family events. Such would have been known for days already. However, we had not been informed neither by phone nor email, and we seem not to have been the only ones mistreated that way. Moreover, when we asked for alternative suggestions in Ballycastle, we were told by the owner that he could not recommend any other B&B in town! In short: avoid Carnately Lodge!

Hey Guys just a quick apology for being closed whilst we watched a family member suffering from terminal cancer. We just hope it never happens to you. Also we could not recommend anywhere else.

Lovely B&B-certainly better then the hotels we stayed in during our trip. Lovely views, very quiet. The room was spotless, the bed and pillows really comfortable. Fragrant bed linen, large thick soft towels, lots of nice little touches. Breakfast was really good -good coffee, excellent yogurt, good fruit salad. Sounds as if I'm raving a bit, but it really was such a lovely place. Owner very helpful.

It's slightly far from the village but it's easy to go. Rooms are nice. Environment is what you expect of that area. The owner is friendly. They have cows, it's like a farm, but all is absolutely clean.

Carnately Lodge is about 20 minutes drive from the Giant's Causeway site. It is very well appointed and Robert is very helpful. The breakfast was delicious with smoked salmon and fresh, local eggs. He pointed us to a very good restaurant, The Cellar.

Stayed in eight different B & Bs during our 2.5 week trip throughout Ireland and No Ireland. This was far and away the best! Great rooms, wonderful breakfasts, convenient location. Robert was friendly, so helpful,and a very gracious host. Trevor's breakfasts are not to be missed and he will accommodate to meet your needs. Rooms are immaculate with up to date amenities. Could not recommend it more highly. Serene location with charming views.
