“A five star property that feels like home”
Reviewed 3 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have stayed at May lodge twice now and both times found it to be an excellent experience. This time we arrived at Christmas, and our young children were very excited to find that the house had been fully decorated for our arrival. Once again Rosemary and John made us feel welcome at a home away from home. The house provides five star quality accommodation with every need catered for. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

“Excellent accommodation, very well equipped and tastefully furnished.”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had stayed in May Lodge 3 years ago and liked it very much then. The recent refurbishment is a great success and has enhanced this lovely property. The new en suite facilities and decked area which commands fine views of Belfast Lough are great additions. There is great attention to detail throughout the property. We have also stayed at the Coach House round the corner (which we always have loved) and in common with that property, May Lodge has all the advantages of being very conveniently located as a centre for exploring Belfas/ district and beyond, being at the start of the Causeway Coastal Route in one direction and about 10-15 minutes from Belfast in the other via the M5/M2. Rosemary and John are the most thoughtful and friendly hosts you are ever likely to meet. You won't be disappointed if you stay there!

Good, quick and friendly communication about the rental. Warm welcome by owner.
Nice, clean and spacious house with everything you need. Good beds.
Easy bus transport to central Belfast, in front of the house.

Even the cyclists of the Giro were so nice to pass the house.

We will come back when we visit Belfast the next time.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive review of May Lodge. We loved having you and your wife to stay - and especially arranged for the Giro to pass our grounds so that you would have a ringside view of them ! I'm so pleased that you enjoyed Belfast as well and hope that you will return sometime and bring your friends with you.

“Wonderful cottage for a family vacation close to Belfast”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at this quiet, well maintained cottage. We found it as it was described. It is spacious and had everything we needed as a family. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked almost every night. It was far better than staying in a hotel and is close to Belfast. Our boys had fun walking down to the beach on Belfast Lough. May Lodge surpassed our expectations and when we visit Belfast we will certainly stay again.

“A perfect home away from home!”

A group of 5 of stayed here very comfortably during our UK Tour of Evita. We are a mixture of performers and musicians and all in all we had a brilliant experience of Belfast, made better by having May Lodge to relax in after a hard day's work at the Opera House. The location of the Lodge is beautiful by the coast and the train station a very short walk away, meaning our journeys into town were very quick and easy to make. It feels like a proper family home and we enjoyed having the chance to cook for each other and relax in comfort without it feeling crowded at all. The owners made us feel especially welcome and I would recommend this letting to anyone wishing to visit Belfast! Many thanks from us all! :)
