We were a family of 7 visiting Belfast for 4 days. The Old Rectory is located in a nice area outside the city center. There's a bus stop very close by. (And a cab to/from the city center is also quite inexpensive, at least compared to what I'm used to, which is Norwegian prices). The hosts were friendly and service...

This guesthouse is located in a quiet highend neighbourhood, about a 10 minute bus drive from city center. It is a guesthouse with at least 6 rooms.The rooms are charming and well-equipped. What I appreciated the most was the friendly hospitality of the owners. From the time we booked the stay until we left they helped us book tours, taxis,...

This was our second visit, stayed in the Newsome room for 2 nights, same as last time. Have your own bathroom, and very roomy and comfortable. Awesome breakfast! Got the Irish breakfast the first morning...too much food, but we saved some meat for our lunch. Second day, I had an omelet and hubby had the small Irish breakfast...again awesome! We...

Cannot say enough great things about this place. We were a party of three, and had two rooms. We were given the top floor rooms, and they were perfect. Spacious, clean, ensuite bathrooms, great views. The B&B is on a very busy street, but once inside you never hear the cars, it is very peaceful, and wonderfully decorated. The options...

Thanks very much for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. We recently replaced all our windows, so it's great that you felt the rooms were quiet and peaceful. We're glad you enjoyed your 'breakfast-on-the-go', hope you liked the freshly baked banana bread treat we popped in. Safe travels and hopefully we'll see you again.

Hidden gem! Our family of four stayed at the Old Rectory and we loved every minute of it. Their attention to detail is like none other. The homemade breakfast choices feel like a 5 star restaurant and the atmosphere has a true "homey" feel. Our children ages 10 and 14 shared a room and my husband and I had a...

If you're looking for a B&B in Belfast, this is a definite must. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom and to top it all, a wonderful choice at breakfast. The wifi worked without a hitch and the staff are welcoming. It's also in a great area where you can easily catch a bus into town or go for a stroll...

Many thanks for taking the time to leave us such a fantastic review. We're over the moon that you had such an comfortable stay and enjoyed your breakfast. We're really lucky to be situated so close to the Lagan tow path and the city centre, it's great that you found it handy. Until next time!

Brilliant hospitality from the get go. Lovely staff, beautiful old-fashioned bedrooms and very delicious breakfasts. Only stayed one night but we would definitely stay here again if we come back to Belfast. Close to the city centre, great restaurants and shops. 10/10 would highly recommend!

My wife and I stayed for 6 nights while we toured Northern Ireland. We were just blown away the moment we stepped in the door. We were greeted by Aine and she made us feel welcome right from the start. Our room was ready even though we arrived early for check in. We had the Newforge room with ensuite. And...

Lovely, well maintained old rectory turned into bed and breakfast facility in a relatively quiet area of city conveniently located to downtown Belfast. Very trusting owners, we were given keys to front door of the fhome to come and go as we pleased yet the owners were available if needed. Special touches such as the fine china, linens, a reading...
