A COMBER bed and breakfast has won a major hospitality award.

The Old Schoolhouse has been named AA Guest Accommodation of the Year for Northern Ireland at this year’s AA B&B Awards.

All the winners were nominated by AA Inspectors who inspect and rate over 2000 B&Bs throughout the UK.  The awards were presented at the annual ceremony at the London Landmark Hotel .

The winners received their award certificate together with an engraved Villeroy and Boch decanter for all their guests to see.

Terry and Avril Brown purchased the Old Schoolhouse at Ballydrain as a school in 1984 and transformed it into an eight-bedroomed inn.  Each of the rooms are named after American Presidents of Ulster descent.  

Guests benefit from the genuine Irish welcome and Avril’s sumptuous breakfasts including her famous Guinness Wheaten Bread. Dinner is also available in the two AA Rosette restaurant run by Avril and Terry’s son Will and his partner Karena.  

Avril said: “We are highly elated and delighted to have won this prestigious award.”
