Feedback

We know you will enjoy your stay at Woodlands Manor. But don’t take our word for it … See what our guests have said…

  • “Returning is already a forgone conclusion, best Airbnb experience I’ve had by a mile.”
  • “The apartment is beautiful, spacious and very modern”
  • “Who could be nicer and more helpful then our hosts Heather, Johnston and James. We had such a fabulous trip to Northern Ireland all because of their assistance in many ways – ideas, planning for transportation, working with the weather, places to go and when….etc etc. And always so warm and wonderful.”
  • “The accommodations were perfect and we would definitely stay with them again. Highest praise for them!”
  • “The pictures really don’t do it justice –  It’s far more spacious than the photos allow you to get a feel for. This apartment is the perfect mix of home-comfort with that hotel-like privacy.”
  • “The ideal ‘home-away-from-home'”
  • “Great location with great hosts.”
  • “Very spacious apartment decorated very tastefully with great amenities. Hosts were very welcoming and accommodating to all our needs especially with our baby. Would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Belfast, and would definitely return!”
  • “Couldn’t have asked for a better stay and we will definitely consider here to stay if we are ever in Belfast again.”
  • “Beautiful large space! Heather, Johnston, and James are so helpful and kind. This was a lovely stay.”
  • “All the rooms are tastefully decorated with all the thoughtful amenities that you’d never quite remember to enquire about, but are so glad and thankful that they are all there. Private balcony overlooking a quiet road, that’s ideal to sit on with the first brew of the morning and the local paper. The location is good too, as the transport links are local and easily accessible (walking distance) and taxi fares into town are inexpensive, if that’s what you prefer. But most importantly are the hosts; welcoming, engaging and so organised. It’s the little things like ensuring washing up liquid and enough dishwasher tablets (for the duration of your stay) are provided, that go such a long way.”

Why Belfast?

Belfast may not be the most obvious choice for a UK city break, but it’s fast becoming one of the most popular cities to visit in the UK.

There are fantastic pubs and restaurants located throughout the city. There is lots to see and do from the world famous Titanic Belfast to the award-winning St George’s Market and the famous Belfast murals.

It’s also a great base for exploring the rest of Northern Ireland and all that it has to offer.
