I stayed here for 2 nights in early January 2012 for a business trip to Ballymena. The house is about 4 miles from the town centre and is close enough to nip into the town or taxi it. Private parking is good, large grounds, well presented. I received a warm welcome from Margaret and was shown the facilities to use. My room was upstairs, ensuite shower, clean and well presented. Very comfy bed and pillow, which is always good. A room heater was supplied to help keep me warm. Tea and coffee is available downstairs when required, and biscuits. I travelled alone and got a good sized triple room for £40 per night, a nice price for a solo traveller. From their website, £60 per night for twin or double (2 people). Overall I enjoyed my stay and was glad I stayed here.
Breakfast, cooked breakfast was offered at a time that suited me, great! 2 sausage, bacon, egg, 1 potato bread, toast, orange juice. And it was nice too.
Stay here again, yes I certainly would and I'd recommend it to friends.
