“A warm and friendly Guesthouse”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

This was our first trip to Belfast. My wife and I chose the Camera House based on the description in Rick Steve's book on Ireland and we weren't disappointed. Our hosts Danny and Miriam went out of their way to help us identify the key sites to see, find good restaurants and make us feel at home. Miriam's cooking is awesome: the full Irish breakfast was the perfect start to our mornings. The guesthouse is located on a nice residential street near Queens University, a short walk from the Botanic Garden and the Ulster Musem. We found it a reasonable walk to the Botanic train station where we made connections to other sites such as the Ulster Folk and Transportation Museum. The only quirk we noticed is that flushing the toilet activates a rather noisy pump - particularly noticeable in the middle of the night. (Nothing that caused us to lose much sleep, just full disclosure.) The Camera House has character unlike the hotel chains and the hosts Danny and Miriam are very welcoming. We had a wonderful stay and wish it could have been longer!

Room Tip: We wanted our own bathroom so we chose a double room en-suite. Our room had large windows with a nic...

After a very disappointing weekend in Dublin... My fiancé and I arrived in Belfast with the hope of rejuvenation. After a few knocks on the door, two friendly, smiling faces answered and welcomed us in. The Camera Guesthouse was truly a breath of fresh air. Danny and Miriam showed us around and brought us to our room. A very clean, well put together bedroom that provided us with a much needed, comfortable rest. We awoke ready to tackle the day, and to our delight, with the smell of the Camera Guesthouse breakfast. What a great way to start the morning! This was the Ireland that we came to visit!! Danny and Miriam went out of their way pointing out the local attractions and recommended a visit to a local botanical garden, literally a few minutes on foot up the road. It's gorgeous... seriously worth the short walk (http://www.discovernorthernireland.com/Belfast-Botanic-Gardens-and-Palm-House-Belfast-P2787) I will continue to recommend the Camera Guesthouse. Danny and Miriam are incredible hosts. They made us feel like we were visiting old friends, opening their home to us.

I'll start with the good parts about this B&B: it's in a nice location with ample street parking, it has a great history to it, and the owners are wonderful. We had to leave very early in the morning to catch our flight and they set us up with breakfast so that we didn't have to leave without food. The beds in our room were horrible though. I had major back pain from trying to sleep in the bed, the 2nd night, my friend chose to sleep on the floor instead.

Many thanks for your positive comments. Despite it not being reflected in the overall score, or in the review headline, we're happy that you enjoyed almost every aspect of your stay at Camera Guest House. Whilst we're very sorry to read that you found the bed uncomfortable (which has now been replaced), it should be noted that we were not made aware of this issue at the time. Had we been informed - rather than learning about it on Trip Advisor - we would have done everything possible to rectify the problem.

This was not our first choice of place to stay in Belfast, but we wre pleasantly surprised.Although it is a little worn around the edges the rooms were comfortable and clean . Breakfast was great served in a quaint little room everything was freshly cooked and plenty of choice. the owners were very helpful and it only took us a few mins by car to get back the the city center. walking would take about 20 mins and there was always a bus.Plenty of places to eat nearby. Don't be put off by the one star rating as this guesthouse has everything you need including Wifi. would stay here again.
