“A real Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

In late July I had the pleasure of enjoying a 5 night stay at the Cul Erg in Portstewart, while visiting friends as well enjoying the fantastic golf courses that are available to play within the surrounding region. The facilities and service offered at the Cul Erg are outstanding while the hospitality and friendlyness offered by JJ and Marie is second to none that I have experienced anywhere in the world. It's close location to the main Portstewart Promenade provides easy access within walking distance to all the local restaurants, cafe's and bars as well as the retail shopping outlets. I couldn't fault the place and have no hesitation in recommending this B & B as a high quality establishment well worth the visit. You won't be disappointed. I will most certainly return again sometime again in the future.

Just spent 2 wonderful days with freinds in Portstewart. Maria and JJ were fabulous from the start offering advise and local info. Lots to see and do in the area. They even booked a local eaterie for the 7 of us so we weren't trawing round looking for somewhere to eat. It was late when we arrived so this was very welcome. The breakfasts are enormous, so much choice and the tea and toast just kept coming. no need to ask for seconds. The rooms were well apponted and had everything you need to make your stay that little bit special. Will definitely put it on our list to go again.

We have just returned from a lovely visit to Port Stewart. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance of a number of restaurants and bars. Our hosts, Marie and JJ made us feel so welcome. Our room was well appointed and comfortable and there is a lovely lounge too. The breakfasts were excellent offering a wide choice.

The people here were more than friendly. The area is abundant with scenery ans golf. There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance and area attractions are in easy driving distance making this is a good location for branching out on day trips. Weather here is often cool so plan accordingly. Be sure to have rain gear for sudden light rain may often occur. Rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable. Not overly large but if your on tour you need only sleep here and that is well accomplished. Setting rooms were very nice and breakfast was as always in Ireland excellent.

We had two nights at the Cul Erg, to go to a wedding.
We had a back room with a view of the sea and everthing we could possibly need.
JJ & Marie were so welcoming and helpful even putting an ironing board and iron out ready for our wedding gear. The breakfasts were fantastic lots of choice, high quality and as much as you wanted to eat. We would definately recommed and hope to return one day.

Room Tip: A back room if you want a sea view.
