This B & B is uniquely positioned if you are travelling to Larne by P&O Ferries. The guest house is almost directly opposite the entrance to the ferry port and so could not be closer unless it was actually in the port. The guesthouse is comfortable and well equipped. Three of us stayed we had the small double bedroom whilst... More

We booked this b and b to stay when attending a family wedding this weekend. Just called to check we could still check in early as discussed when booking to hear the news by a very rude lady that we had never booked and she had no record of our booking. After several attempts to blame us for the mistake... More

The guest house is situated opposite the vehicle entrance for the P&O ferry so you can hear the tannoy annoucements and is a mile away from the Stena ferry entrance. Parking is not on the gravel but on the cobbled area in front of the house so you need to shunt your car to drive out. As you can see... More

Stayed here the night before getting the boat to Ireland. Lovely house run by a very friendly couple. We were in the smallest room and it was perfectly comfortable, especially as we really just need bed and breakfast prior to our boat! It is directly opposite the P&O terminal and only a very short distance from the stenaline terminal so... More

Margaret and Peter could not have been kinder or more welcoming, despite our late evening arrival! The room was small, but nicely furnished and spotless. Comfortable bed and good shower. We were booked on a very early ferry and they kindly made up hot sandwiches and drinks for us to take with us, as we would miss breakfast. This seems... More

Margaret was very accommodating for us (late ferry). The standard was very high, very comfy bed and pillows (i'm pregnant - this was very important!) The room was lovely and shower perfect. The breakfast was one of the best we had that week out of 7 b&b's and the mushrooms were the best! The rhubarb yogurt was divine. I highly... More
