The kindest thing to say in reviewing Down Royal House is that it is well below even a reasonable standard which is now expected in a guest-house. The allocated room was freezing cold and we decided to leave after an hour. The heat in the room was clearly only put on only when we arrived. The outside temperature was heading... More

It's very affordable and comfortable, the food is simple and great. The staff are very helpful and friendly. There's a race course nearby that you can run... More

My family and I spent Easter Holidays at this place. Great accommodation and good breakfast. Very clean. The owner is very friendly and ready to help. We also had our dog with us and he was welcome too. It's handy to stay there and visit Belfast.

On booking, I was not told that room 6 was an internal room, with only a skylight. This would not have been a problem if the skylight could have been opened. The room was stuffy, and the fan provided, so noisy that it could not be used. I stayed 2 nights and had to lie on top of the bed,... More
