“Horrible”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Would not recommend this B&B. On arrival the smell of smoke and animals was overwhelming - disgusting. Can only agree with the previous comments regarding the owners dirty clothes. Disgusting. We arrived on a Saturday and the owner wore the same t-shirt for three days. It was covered in food. Again disgusting and made us feel rather queasy. One morning during breakfast we heard the owner shouting at the Bulgarian waitress. She could not speak English but was pleasant and seemed hardworking - made us feel a bit uneasy. The décor throughout is extremely dated and as smoking and animals are allowed the place stinks. Had it been clearly advertised that smoking and animals were permitted we would not have considered staying. Don't waste your money staying here.

This cozy place has everything you need for a cozy night and great breakfast to start your day. Alan, the friendly owner, was kind enough to give us an excellent recommendation for dinner (the mermaid) and even a lift into town. A cab ride back was only £3.50! And I met me new boyfriend here, Alfie the dog.

After arriving late from the time we said we would be there due to traffic in Londonderry, we were greeted by a man in a dirty T-shirt who told us the he put someone else in our room. He was very rude about it, seeing as we paid the deposit for the room and the sun was still shining. Having not invited us into the B & B to help us with arranging alternate accommodation, he was unhelpful and unapologetic for the situation he inflicted. But I think it was a blessing in disguise because it did not look like a desirable place to stay.

me and my girlfriend booked up and paid for 3 nights. but we only stayed for 1 night in the end cause we hated the place. would never stay here again.... he put us in a smelly, damp caravan and charged us 45pounds a night that didn't even include a breakfast not that we wanted to eat there once we saw B and B. its rite on a main road and all we could hear all night was cars and drunk people shouting.

We had a great holiday in Portrush and stay at Brae-Mar. Breakfast was tasty and Found out this B&B is right on the route of the North West 200 Bike race in May so I will definitely be back for that.
Was clean and welcoming.....good value for money too.

Really enjoyed our stay. Free sky sports, free parking, free wi-fi!!
Rooms and beds were really clean. The vegetarian breakfast was lovely and the guy that owned it couldn't do enough for us.......will definitely be back.
