Hidden gem! Our family of four stayed at the Old Rectory and we loved every minute of it. Their attention to detail is like none other. The homemade breakfast choices feel like a 5 star restaurant and the atmosphere has a true "homey" feel. Our children ages 10 and 14 shared a room and my husband and I had a...

If you're looking for a B&B in Belfast, this is a definite must. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom and to top it all, a wonderful choice at breakfast. The wifi worked without a hitch and the staff are welcoming. It's also in a great area where you can easily catch a bus into town or go for a stroll...

Many thanks for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review. We're over the moon that you had such an comfortable stay and enjoyed your breakfast. We're really lucky to be situated so close to the Lagan tow path and the city centre, it's great that you found it handy. Until next time!

Brilliant hospitality from the get go. Lovely staff, beautiful old-fashioned bedrooms and very delicious breakfasts. Only stayed one night but we would definitely stay here again if we come back to Belfast. Close to the city centre, great restaurants and shops. 10/10 would highly recommend!

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights while we toured Northern Ireland. We were just blown away the moment we stepped in the door. We were greeted by Aine and she made us feel welcome right from the start. Our room was ready even though we arrived early for check in. We had the Newforge room with ensuite. And...

Lovely, well maintained old rectory turned into bed and breakfast facility in a relatively quiet area of city conveniently located to downtown Belfast. Very trusting owners, we were given keys to front door of the fhome to come and go as we pleased yet the owners were available if needed. Special touches such as the fine china, linens, a reading...

My friend and I had a delightful stay at the Old Rectory. Gerry and Anya were kind, professional, and very helpful with suggestions and organizing activities. Our room was on the top floor and very comfortable and clean. The location was good - the bus dropped us off at the end of the driveway, and we could walk to the...

We had a lovely two-night stay at the Old Rectory. Gerry and his daughter were amazingly helpful in getting us sorted for dinners, and the breakfasts were so good that I was afraid I had misunderstood the price of the room, which seemed awfully low for the quality of the accommodations and food. You choose your breakfast from an extensive...

What could be nicer than eating a breakfast consisting of freshly squeezed orange juice, porridge laced with whiskey, followed by an Ulster Fry and then toast with home made marmalade, while logs crackle on an open fire? This is an altogether lovely B and B, lovingly converted, as its name implies, from a former rectory. We found the staff to...

I stay in a variety of hotels and guest houses on business, usually for a night or two and this is one of the best I have found.
