“Should be an option for 6 stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We spent one night at the Strand Hill on a twelve day tour with Vagabond. I truly wish we could have stayed longer. Ernestine and Tom was gracious hosts, the rooms were delightful and clean, and the breakfast was excellent. The location is perfect. If you want to spend a few days (or longer) in the north, it would be a great place from which to do day trips. When we get back to Ireland, the Strand House will be one of our stops for sure.

The strand house is a very familiar B&B direct to the coast of Portstewart. The owner, Ernestine and Thom, are very friendly and helpful. They have also tips, where you can have a great supper. Particular the breakfast is like in a ***** hotel! Also the possibility to play golf next to the B&B on a fantastic course is lovely. On the whole a perfect B&B not only for the weekend but also for a week.

We had a wonderful stay in the penthouse and a superior Irish breakfast. I would recommend the Strand to anyone. Ernestine is a jewel. I can't wait to return. We were traveling with three children and all were impressed,

Stayed one night while attending a golf outing in the nearby club. When I booked I was aware that I would be in the small single room but it was perfect for my requirements. Not a lot of space if you had a lot of luggage (I did not) but comfortable bed, nice armchair, clean compact en suite and everything immaculately clean. the whole house was very well presented but it was the people who really made the stay - so friendly. The breakfast was wonderful - great variety and super quality. I look forward to returning!

I have just spent two nights in the Strand B&B with friends and I can strongly recommend this accommodation.Tom and Ernestine gave us a warm welcome with tea and scones. Our rooms were lovely and spotlessly clean.The breakfast was great and Geraldine was most attentive to anything we required. I would most certainly pay a return visit.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room at the front with a sea view

A truly fantastic place!! The house and accommodations were absolutely first rate and the husband and wife who run the B&B could not have been nicer. The rooms were spotless and looked brand new and the beds were very very comfy. The breakfast was probably the best we had during our 7 day / 6 night (and 6 different B&Bs!!!!) tour. The house is just a brief walk into town but you don't even notice the distance since you have beautiful homes on the one side of the street and the ocean on the other.

Ernestine and Tom could not have made us feel any more welcome and we can't wait to return!!!

The hosts Ernestine and Tom make guests feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. This was our second visit and they welcomed us like old friends. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The beds are wonderful. There is a wide selection for breakfast with plenty of excellent coffee. The location is excellent as it is an easy walk into town where there are good restaurants and shops - and a beautiful walk along the sea.
