From the minute you're greeted by Jim and Joy you feel at home and comfortable. The Ulster breakfast was designed and built in Harland & Wolfe! We could not have asked for more from our hosts, as they gave plenty over and above the norm for B&B. Jim gives sterling advice about the local eateries and were best to see the local attractions. Joy keeps him straight! It was a great holiday made all the more special by this great couple and their home.
Many thanks JIm & Joy for allowing us to join a small part of your lives.
Kevin and Sue Pollett.

Jim and Joy were very accommodating, friendly and made us feel at home. We required an extra bed and were happily supplied a cot. Good size family room.
Got very good tips on where to go and what to do in N.Ireland as we had never been there before..
Great breakfast, kept us going for the entire day.
We would definitely stay there again.

I had the immense pleasure of staying here with my wife and 17year old daughter, whilst in Larne during May. Where to start.....Firstly the welcome by both Jim and Joy, two thoroughly lovely people whom couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. The bedrooms were spotless and well appointed, with a homely feel that you can't get in hotels. The Ulster fry at breakfast was a sight to see and a challenge to finish, but well worth having a go!
A special treat was a helping of "Irish porridge" which can only be described as superb! (Praise indeed from a Scotsman!)
I have no hesitation in recommending the Inverbann, whether you're young, old, single, married with family (or without),or a group, I'm sure the welcome will be the same.
Just be careful not to laugh too much as the 'craic' over breakfast was non-stop. You'll need a handkerchief to wipe away the tears of laughter.
We will be sure to return.

We stayed at Inverbann for one night with friends on our tour of Ireland, we were made most welcome, and Jim even sat us down for a drink and a chat before driving us to the local restaurent for a meal.
Rooms were good and breakfast was excellent
Really good hosts and worth a visit if you stop in Larne.

My wife and I found the Inverbann to be the perfect B&B. It is located two minutes from the ferry dock in Larne - in a nice residential area on a street that is actually the Costal Route along the beautiful Antrim Coast toward the Giant's Causway. The house and our well-equipped large room were spotlless. The free WiFi connection was the best (fast) that I have encountered while travelling - and it wasn't even mentioned in their ad. We made a number of free Skype calls home to Canada through our netbook computer and saved ourselves a lot of writing.

I could say more about the great breakfasts and the hosts' good humour but I would sound like an ad. The place suited our needs to a tee and the location was ideal for us (after a day on the road driving down from the Scottish highlands). In fact we stayed at the Inverbann for two nights - the bus to Belfast stops practically across the street - it's inexpensive and saved us parking hassle (and cost) in the city. I am so glad we chose Larne as our entry point into Northern Ireland.

Jim and Joy Scott were the best of hosts, going way beyond the call - you would travel a long way to find friendlier service.

Hi all

My Partner and i stayed at this B&B on the valentines weekend, This B&B is very gay friendly and we had a romantic stay at this B&B. It was good to get a perfect Ulster Fry and booked it last minute. At the spare of the moment. It had all the plesentries of being at home from home. You Had tea and coffee making in your room. Myself and my Partner had a romantic drive along the causeway coast road up as far a garron point on the Saturday. We Stopped in Carrfunnok Country Park for a walk and it was beautiful after that we had a drink in the Olderfleet and it was friendly(my old local when i lived in Larne) then for a meal we went to Carrages and we had two 3 course meals for £30 with a drink included in the price. It was class. You have to stay in Larne to feel the warmth of the people.

To sum up this B&B is a nice place, Gay Friendly and most of all it was a home from home

We will return

David and Darren
