Culloden Estate and Spa

Bangor Rd, Holywood BT18 0EX, UK – 028 9042 1066

From the minute we arrived at reception we were made to feel so welcome and this was a theme throughout the entire hotel, from the Concierge, Spa staff and the Bar and Restaurant areas, great service. The Spa is so relaxing with everything within the same area centred around the bright pool area where you can have lunch or relax by the pool with wonderful views of Belfast Lough. I visited in April with my Sister and Cousin and we were upgraded to a lovely large suite which was a nice surprise. The food in the Mitre Restaurant was delicious and breakfast was to a high quality. All in all this was a great overnight stay and treat. The staff made us feel special and the old building and grounds provided a stunning setting. This was a lovely treat and I highly recommend this Hotel.

In my opinion the best hotel in NI for ambience. An old Bishops palace set in lovely grounds with views over Belfast lough. The inside is calm and coddling as you would expect from a 5* hotel. Service is good but the prices are also 5* as you might expect - a prawn cocktail at the bar costs £12! The bar lounge area is a lovely place to relax and have a cup of tea, or drink. Recommended for a lazy lunch, or whiling away an afternoon in wet weather, or a special stay.


48 Station Rd, Craigavad Cultra, Holywood BT18 0BP, UK – 07703 348081

It was really fantastic 😍 Very welcoming and sweet host. Beautiful house and private garden and stunning rooms. Clean and very comfortable 👍 You can walk to the sea and the centre of Belfast is just 10 minutes by car.

Cultra Inn

1 Cultra Station Rd, Holywood BT18 0AU, UK – 028 9042 5840

Lovely sunny weather and got the opportunity to sit outside. had a fantastic afternoon / early evening and we were very happy with both the service and food

place is not busy, would be busy of the food was priced to match value. most places serve you too much, this place cretainly wint be accused of that. what i got was tasty, and staff and surroundings were nice.

Travel Super Market search and compare prices for hotels all over the world. Could also be useful for you. I This said I was told by a hotelier that the way to get cheap rooms is to ring up the week before and ask for the weekend rate. You can usually get an absolute bargain as they will trying to book all the rooms that they have not sold! Could be worth a try!

Holywood Hill Country Cottages

40C&D Creightons Green Road, Holywood BT18 0HQ, UK – 07870 493651

The prefect accommodation for a young family visiting relatives in the area. The accommodation itself was fully equipped with everything we needed, and the welcome basket made life a lot easier. Knowing we had two small children Wendy had kindly put out additional supplies for them, kiddy cups and bowls etc. The setting was delightful as well, looking out from the Holywood Hills across the loch with views to the sea and Scotland. The house sits in a large garden which our eldest loved rambling through. From a practical perspective it's 10 minutes from Holywood with all the shops you might need, and another 10 minutes will get you into Belfast. All in all a great place to stay.

Slipway Cottage

Slipway Cottage, 12 Kinnegar Dr, Holywood BT18 9JQ, UK – 028 9042 8477

You can find excellent very well priced accommodation around Holywood using Airbnb!

We run an Airbnb bed and breakfast down in Devon (house below) - and we have stayed in Airbnb accommodation all over the place. You can find the wonderful little gems with totally committed hosts and really frightful places which you put down to experience! You absolutely have to read the details of each listing - and read the reviews! We have had people coming to East Quither Farm expecting to take over our whole house -  or our kitchen etc simply because they have not read the description. Basically use Airbnb wherever we go - but we do do our homework!

Bed & Breakfast Accommodation plus Guesthouses

Rayanne House

60 Demesne Rd, Holywood BT18 9EX, UK – 028 9042 5859

Very nice at a reasonable price with nice views and is situated in a very good spot near Holywood center. It is a very short walk to the nearest train station or bus stop making travel easy without a car

Big old house made into a modern guesthouse/hotel. Me and my girlfriend stopped here for the night as we where visiting the big city found it very cosy and warm and very quiet. Not far to Belfast City center either and breakfast was had lots lovely looking options I went for the banana crepe.

Ardshane Country House

5 Bangor Rd, Holywood BT18 0NU, UK – 028 9042 2044

If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!
