I waited too long to book a hotel in Belfast and the last minute availability was very pricey! This was a very nice surprise! I'd travelled through Moira before and it is a quaint village with a cute variety of shops, cafe's and restaurants. I'd never thought of staying there as opposed to Belfast. The guesthouse is very easy to spot on the only main road in Moira, it is a convenient location just off the main motorway.
The best parts: the room was huge, clean and modern looking without being overly modern. It was clean and comfy. The staff were wonderfully helpful and welcoming. It was fully booked that night however it was hard to too as it was very quiet. Wifi was readily available in our room as well as in a lounge at the front of the house.
Not expecting: The car park disaster. I like having a car park available, it makes life easier when traveling with a car! The description did state there was a free car park available, and there was. However I didn't count on it being a Georgian property with the typical Georgian 'coach house' bridged drive way. It was a stressful few minutes of trying to navigate the very narrow tunnel to get to a slight bend and through a slightly larger tunnel to the back parking area! The car fit, however it was VERY tight getting through mostly due to the awkward angle you're forced to use from pulling off the street. That said, the car park is very secure and locked at night...a bonus in any area! Later we left for a drive and opted not to park back there again instead of using one of the available public parking spots in front of the house.
Breakfast was great and the options were plentiful. The coffee was amazing and the breakfast room had nice modern touches including fresh flowers at each table. Another nice touch was a few sweets on our coffee/tea tray in our room!
