“Just fab!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I have been to Whitepark House on a number occasions and have to say I think it is wonderful. The attention to detail is second to none and it is the perfect base to explore the coast. Bob is a true gentleman and a fantastic host and nothing is a problem. Freshly brewed coffee and homemade shortbread, couldn't ask for better. The decor is befitting of this house and there has been great attention given to each and every room. The gardens are wonderful and are great to walk round. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Thank you, Bob, for another wonderful stay in your beautiful home. I LIKE all the "tat". Nothing could be further from the truth. Staying with you is like being enveloped in a cocoon of luxury with nothing to worry about, because you have it all in hand. We must have been visiting Northern Ireland now for seven years and have rarely missed the opportunity to stay. The friends and family we have brought along all feel the same. Keep on doing what you are doing.

This was such a wonderful stay. We would return just to sleep in the bed ! Marshmallow, clouds, heaven - would all describe this level of absolute comfort. It is a fabulous B&B house (with plenty of quirky and interesting objets d'art!) in a prime location for this northern Irish coast and to see the Giants Causeway. The rooms and the B&B are just great, the Irish breakfast a real winner.
The hosts sre delightful and I cannot recommend highly enough. Go on, spoil yourselves :)

Just had a lovely night staying at this B&B. Bob the owner was so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. The bedrooms are very spacious and comfortable. The views of whitepark Bay are stunning. Bob had a lovely afternoon tea ready for our arrival and the cooked breakfast was gorgeous. Would recomend this hotel to anyone thnkng of staying in te area. Our teenage sons enjoyed the stay as well.

Room Tip: Try to get a room to the front of the property as the views are stunning.

Although this house is a beautifully restored Georgian home it was not all it was cracked up to be. There was so much tat around that it really ruined and undermined some of the quality furnishings. You could almost hear the 'hotel inspector ' saying "declutter and get rid of the tat, especially fake plants and cheap knick knacks - you have a gorgeous house that is being hidden behind junk!".
This accommodation is overpriced and is so pretentious about itself, trying unsuccessfully to be upper crust. While Bob tries to be a helpful host, he does not like questions or to have the spiel he gives you upon arrival, interrupted. He has set ideas about dining etc . We found a very friendly pub to eat in where the food was great, well presented and served with courtesy and a smile. Bob obviously felt we had chosen a place 'beneath' that of what a Whitepark House guest should consider!
The twin room we stayed in was claustrophobic and we feared the overhanging false greenery and other items above the beds would fall on us. The bathroom however, was spacious and of a very high quality.

Room Tip: If you require a twin room this is not the place for you, unless you are happy to be cramped

We arrived with high expectations and certainly were not disappointed. Cosy, comfortable and choc a bloc with interesting items it certainly is full of character and charm. Bob has found his niche is life as the amiable chef/patron and is full of local knowledge. Highly recommended. Tea in front of the fire and delicious freshly cooked breakfast puts it well ahead of any hotel in the area

Room Tip: I imagine all the rooms would be as charming as ours

We spent only one night at this beautiful B&B but with host Bob's guidance we were able to make the best of our time in the area. Loved the welcome tea in front of the fireplace. The room was beatiful and comfortable with everything you may need. Breakfast was delicious! We had a small accident hitting a backpack against one of Bob's beautiful lamps and it broke. Bob was nice to make sure we did not feel too bad about it and despite the offering he refused any money for the broken item. The lcation and service could not be better. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiong Northern Ireland for aday or a week. I am sure Bob will make you feel at home! :)
