I travelled to Bangor to visit my kids after nearly 4 years. I just wanted to spend time with them if they will have me!!! My wife organised the whole trip including this accommodation for a week long stay!! Pauline was the best hostess ever, her charming and helpful emails about taxi and trip form airport etc., and she also made number of phone calls from the UK to Australia despite minor issues like massive time differences , all n the name of customer experience.

We are mighty impressed and would recommend Hargreaves and Pauline to anyone , whether you are travelling on your own or with family, it is the place to be!! Oh totally forgot the scrumptious home made country breakfast!!! I cannot wait to go back, this time with my Family in Sydney!!

A beautiful, cozy, waterfront B&B that we will definitely visit again. The hostess, Pauline, was incredibly welcoming and helped us plan the rest of our trip. She even stored some of our luggage while we went to Scotland so that we didn't have as much to carry, then met us at the train station to deliver it! The very best B&B experience we've ever had!

Room Tip: We had the room with the world's smallest bathroom, which actually worked quite well! If you li...

Hi - Thanks for taking the time to make your lovely comments on your stay with us. So glad you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seeing you again in the not too distant future. Perhaps next time you would prefer the larger double room on the first floor with the larger bathroom complete with corner bath although I am sure you will not find it as 'intimate' :-)) Thanks also for the beautiful flowers - they lasted for well over a week. Also hope you managed to get home your luggage and contents safely! The couple in San Diego can't wait...........

We have just returned home from Hargreaves House B&B, it was lovely, quiet, clean and very cosy. The breakfast was just perfect, with the basil and nasturtium adding that finishing touch. Pauline was very attentive, friendly and an excellent host. The children really enjoyed our stay in Bangor. Thank you, if you want a B&B in Bangor you will not get better than this so book it now!

Pauline was great and knew everything we asked, and advised us on lots of things , and it was never too much trouble for her ,and most of the time arranged it for us. The room was clean and tidy at all times. Food was great ,and even did our breakfast when we were late on one occasion. The location was perfect and had everything close by. I would recommend it to anyone and will use paulines b&b in the very near future “thanx for making our stay very simple

Stayed one night at Hargreaves House last weekend, we completely enjoyed our brief stay! Everything was just perfect, the breakfast was wonderful, our room was small but grand, Pauline pays attention to all details to make your stay tops! "Aunty" Pauline was very nice, kind and thoughtful, she even rode us with a wee bit in our car to guide us out of town...We would highly recommend her B and B to everyone staying just a few miles outside of Belfast (don't forget to take Susie Millar's Belfast tour). The only bummer was that the TSA took my two homemade jelly with whisky jars from my backpack in LA on the way home! I was really looking forward to having a bit of Ireland back home - thanks for all Pauline!!!! Allen & Janet

Hi - Glad you made it home safely but sorry you had your whiskey marmalade taken from you! Taking steps to sort that out! Luckily we have some more guests in at the moment from the US. Anyway, perhaps you will be able to stay longer next time you visit Ireland? One night just isn't long enough.

The Hargreaves House ist a very nice bed and breakfast with a brilliant hostel warden called Pauline. She was very nice, courteous and supporting. The rooms are very individual personally. Breakfast and breakfasttime is requiring by the guest.

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Wir waren und sind noch immer kolossal begeistert.

Liebe Grüße aus Rostock, Leipzig und Potsdam
