    I have given this property 5 stars all round, maybe others would not mark amenities at 5 but I feel hostess Deidre does absolutely everything to make you welcome. I forgot to say we had a Coeliac amongst the four of us arriving at 22.15 so at 22.20 Deidre went shopping for gluten free sausages. She made the lounge and the dining room seem like home to all of us. My family decided at the last minute they were coming with us which meant a late booking for a Portrush guest house for my wife and stepdaughter. My wife visited on one of the 5 nights the family was there and was made most welcome. She could not believe Deidre's generosity after talking about her recently departed mother and wanting to get a Mary statute for her grave, Deidre gave one to my wife. If you think that MOTHER Theresa's don't exist in Britain visit this guest house please.

    Really well looked after - Deirdre was so nice. Accomodation was exactly what you need - well located and great breakfast. Great location for golf and for visiting all the coastal attractions.
