Tourism NI has awarded Peartree Hill Bed and Breakfast in Dundonald a five-star rating under its accommodation quality grading scheme.
This luxurious bed and breakfast offers two themed rooms, each with en suite facilities and treats guests to a locally sourced breakfast served with fruit grown by proprietors, husband and wife team Ian and Avril Hunter. Caroline Adams, Tourism NI Quality and Standards Manager commented; "Peartree Hill is an excellent addition to the visitor accommodation portfolio in County Down. I commend Avril and Ian for their strong commitment to creating a memorable stay for guests from booking to departure. The focus on local produce on Peartree Hill's breakfast menu, which includes ingredients sourced from dedicated artisan producers and home-grown seasonal fruit and vegetables from the property's garden, continues to be a hit with local and international visitors." Commenting on the five star award Avril Hunter said, "During our first year of business we welcomed guests from 28 countries who have enjoyed our five-star luxury accommodation within easy reach of Belfast. I'm truly delighted to achieve a five-star quality grading for Peartree Hill and this accolade is a great marketing tool that will help Ian and I attract more visitors."
