Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had come over for a wedding nearby. What a pleasant B&B with a really peaceful atmosphere. Really great sized room with all mod cons and a good sized flat screen TV. But wow what an amazing view of the marina, you could of been in the south of France or Miami! The staff were really helpful and caring. The breakfast was a real quality start to the day. Thank you for making our trip to Ireland so wonderfully memorable

Very clean. The location here was very good. Close to downtown and also to walking along the shore. There is a beautiful children's park nearby. Friendly with a good breakfast. Our room was small but very clean and more than adequate

Stayed here in July 2013, got a good rate and where very happy with the B+B. The rooms were modern and we had a front room looking over the Marina, Breakfast was good Was a few minutes walk from the town centre but still located on a very quiet street with no noise at night!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the front rooms.

our stay in the Astala guest house in Bangor was most enjoyable. Very comfortable accommodation overlooking the marina. Staff were very helpful and obliging. Breakfast was excellent. Room was spacious and clean. Overall was a very enjoyable experience. Rachelle, the manager was extremely helpful and accommodating.
Our thanks to all concerned. We look forward to returning again next year.

Astala Guest House is perfectly maintained, quiet and our twin room was large with a handicap accessible bath, which we did not need but gave extra room. A real plus, this B&B has an elevator which after carrying bags up and down stairs all over Ireland, was much appreciated. The location by the Harbor was great and an easy walk to many restaurants and bars.

Rachelle was ever so helpful. We had to get a very early start in the morning (before breakfast was served) and she insisted on giving us snacks for our room to have with coffee or tea in the morning. This is truly a good value and lovely residence.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front have a nice view of the Harbor.

We got a very good deal for one night in this lovely guest house. it was worth every penny we spent. The house is located in beautiful Victorian building right next to the harbour. It is a perfect location for exploring Bangor and a short drive to Belfast. Breakfast was also very tasty and staff is professional and helpful.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the harbour was fantastic.

Stayed here for 3 nights it had a good central location. Warm welcome and given all the info we needed on arrival. The Room was ok but had an interconnecting door (room 1) . Breakfast was nothing to write home about but was perfectly acceptable. I would have given much higher ratings if we had stayed only 2 nights unfortunately on night 3 the adjoining room with the interconnecting door was in use . We were trying to sleep when the occupants arrived, the light shone brightly through the interconnecting door and whilst the occupants were not speaking loudly we could hear every word said including tv, tea making etc etc I felt that neither room offered any privacy and found it difficult to sleep due to the light and noise. So if you are not in either room 1 or 2 I would recommend.
