Friendliest B&B in Belfast?
Posted Jul 2, 2013 on Hotels
When you book though hotels.com the default seems to be two days hence (always wanted to use that word) and two people. Problem is, I wanted the B&B for that night, not two days hence! Also, I am only one person. I thought I had lost my deposit but, Sean, the owner of the Ardmore Guesthouse, was very accomodating and allowed me to use the money I had paid two weeks later when I had another trip. I had never met Sean before, but it was like being greeted by an old friend when I arrived at the B&B. The room was clean, comfortable and cosy, and breakfast was perfectly cooked by Sean himself. I told Sean that my only complaint was that the bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get up the next morning! Sean also owns 'Opera' pizzeria on Belfast's busy Dublin Road. The actor Damon Quinn described it as ..."the warmest, friendliest little restaurant in the world." If you're feeling flush, Opera also boasts the most expensive pizza in the world on its menu (among many other very reasonably priced pies).
