About Glenfield

Situated in a peaceful spot on a working farm, Glenfield B&B offers guests simple country accommodation in a tranquil location, and is convenient for many of County Antrim’s attractions.

The rooms are simply furnished, with a bit of a classical feel, and feature colour TV with freeview channels, tea/coffee stations and hairdryers. One room is en-suite, and the rest share a bathroom.

Guests are welcome to relax in the guest lounge, and there is plenty of free parking on-site.

Both full cooked breakfast and continental versions are available each morning, while the hosts are also prepared to prepare packed lunches on request. For other meals, the hosts will be happy to offer suitable dining recommendations.

Ballymena is about 10 miles from the B&B and has much of interest, including the Ballymena Museum. Belfast is approximately 20 miles to the south.

Positive Reviews

More than ample breakfast

Glenfield Ballymena clearly lives by the motto of breakfast being the most important meal of the day. Several guests mention being able to totally forego lunch, such was the size of the portions served up every morning. But it was not only the portions that impressed, guests were more than happy with the taste and variety as well.

Friendly and welcoming host

Guests were very complimentary of the host, who is described as very sweet and welcoming, always seeing that her guests have all they need for their stay. The hot tea immediately on arrival was especially appreciated.

Plenty of parking

While perhaps not surprising, considering the B&B is located on a farm, guests did comment that they were very happy that there was more than enough parking. It was one less thing to worry about when returning from their travels.

Negative Reviews

A little difficult to find

Like many rural properties, it was mentioned that Glenfield Ballymena was quite difficult to find. SatNav is often thrown for a loop in these cases, hopefully not leading to rather comical episodes of cars driving into lakes. In any event, entering the precise co-ordinates into the SatNav may help, or failing that an old-school map may be the best bet.

Shared bathroom across the hall

Only one of the rooms has a private en-suite bathroom. The rest share a bathroom down the hall. While it was not mentioned often, this sort of set-up can cause guests to feel a bit awkward, especially when using it first thing I the morning while still in their pyjamas.

No Wi-Fi in the bedrooms

While it seems that Wi-Fi was available downstairs, guests mentioned that it wasn't accessible in their rooms. This led to a little frustration.
