“"Fabulous"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

Strand House would give most 5* hotels a good run for their money. From the welcoming coffee and delicious tray bakes on arrival; the beautiful, comfortable bedrooms and the delicious breakfast. Every little detail has been carefully though of and the house is beautifully decorated and cared for. We were made so welcome from the minute we stepped into Strand House till we left next day. I would highly recommend it to anyone, at any time. Thanks to Ernestine, Kate and Jo for the warmest of welcomes - not to mention the chat, advice and laughs over a long leisurely breakfast. I'll be back! Bernie

From the moment we arrived at The Strand we got 5* treatment. The house is impeccable, beautifully furnished and in a great location. After settling into our beautiful rooms we were presented with Tea/Coffee and homemade treats. You immediately feel comfortable and relaxed in this beautiful home.

Breakfast the next morning was a feast of delights. Fresh, in season, fruits, delicious homemade breads and a great choice on the menu. There is no sense of you being rushed. We were set up for the day after our sumptuous breakfast.

I would highly recommend The Strand, it would beat a lot of 4* hotels hands down. Ernestine is a fabulous host and I know that I will definitely returning to stay here again.

Exceptional accommodation in a perfect location for the north coast. Bedrooms 'kitted out' like a 5* hotel. Superb breakfast sets you up for the following day. Friendly welcome guaranteed. Will definitely return.

This is a great and central location to explore the North coast area from, easy access to the amazing local attractions, beauty spots and the towns of Portstewart and Portrush.

The attention to detail was second to none and we were made most welcome from the minute we arrived. The rooms are very high quality with attention to detail. 5 stars in my book!

Thanks to all the staff led by the amazing Ernestine. Look froward to returning next time we are in the area.

A comfy, clean and beautifully situated guest house in Portstewart, the perfect jumping off point to visit Derry and the spectacular north coast of Northern Ireland including the Giant's Causeway. Warm and welcoming hosts offer hassle free accommodation and the best breakfast experience I've had in a long time!

A lovely place to stay. The owners are second to none - very friendly and they certainly know how to make their guests feel as if they are at home. I have often stayed in nearby hotels, and liked them, but I prefer The Strand for stay overs. I would say the Strand rates equal to many four star hotels and as a bed and breakfast it gets ten out of ten. The home made cooking provided by the hostess is Five star hotel equivalent.
