This was a return visit to the simply superb Avarest. We stayed in room 19 which was spacious and nicely decorated but the best bit was the beautiful view. The hospitality from the owner is as good as you'll get anywhere and the breakfasts are excellent!

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and have to say it's a First class accommodation, fantastic breakfast and friendly helpful staff. Location is convenient but without the noise element and the views from the accommodation is breathtaking.

Our room was on the first floor which was handy and for those with heavy bags or reduced mobility it had a lift. The room was well presented with all the...

Our girls booked this for us a weekend away in this lovely family run business in Portrush. The room was with a sea view it was clean tidy modern and warm at night. The food we can't complain as the breakfast was good and filling set you up for the day.

A very warm welcome greeted us on arrival after which we headed up to our room. The room was spacious and also spotless, decor was pleasant with a beautiful sea view. Lastly we...
