We stayed overnight in Portrush after a trip to the wondeful Giant's Causeway. Portrush is just 10 minutes drive from hee and you also have Dunluce castle close by which is well worth a visit.
The gueshouse is a fine old house - we had a queen double with sea view (the view was a lovely view of the harbour and the sea beyond) and we took a second room - a triple for the kids.
Very reasonably priced and both rooms were comfortable and en-suite. I found the shower a bit tricky but I like a challenge.
What I look for in a B&B is comfortbale rooms, good clean facilities, good location, friendly staff and excellent breakfast. The Avarest has all of these and while some may find fault with a few fixtures that need attention these things do not bother me - in fact they add a little character.
The breakfast - a large Ulster fry - was probably worth the price alone although it was wasted on our fussy children - however there was plenty of alternatives available to keep them happy.
The town is mostlyone way but we found the house easily enough and thee is ample on road parking outside.
All in all a really pleasant stay in a town I will return to - the Avarest will be top of my list for accommodation when I do.
