Marlagh Lodge is a beautifully restored old country house, there are lots of little details in the interior that looks like a living (but comfortable) museum. There is no dinner on Sundays, but our host kindly helped us to select a good restaurant and ordered a taxi. Breakfast is the best we had on our tour of Northern Ireland!

Your greeted by Robert and shown to your wonderful room, decorated traditionally but appropriate for the style of the building. Breakfast was also delicious!!! Highly recommended B&B

We had the most wonderful stay in this beautiful Victorian home, very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Robert's cooking (dinner and breakfast) is excellent and he was very friendly and attentive. Amazing value for money! We will be back.

Lovely quiet location with a good location close to Ballymena. Lovely decorated rooms. Delicious breakfast menu. Very friendly host. Would definitely stay again. Suggestions: Privacy option for doorknob on room. Just a personal preference. Also beds were too hard for me although someone else may like.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Our room was perfect and breakfast was amazing (Porridge with local whiskey, who'd have thought!?) Absolutely worth a visit. We will definitely be back!!!

I have literally just checked out of this wonderful little place. If you find yourself in this area I would highly recommend. I stayed with my partner and our adult daughter, there are only 3 rooms so we took two of them. All the rooms are very spacious and decorated to suit the character of the building. Lots of attention... More
