Good location, very quiet, and once upon a time very salubrious; walking distance from University, Ulster Museum, Ryan's Pub, and solid walk to the City. The outside of Camera House, the lounge, and the breakfast room are great. The staff really helpful. There was free WiFi. Breakfast was good. But the place is tired and worn, and really needs some...

Be aware, this property is deceptive. Looks good from the outside, yet shabby inside. No hot water, shower not working as you would expect (apparently requires you to hold the on button in for half a minute or so to work, yet there was no sign to advise this!!!). Beds awful, and just not a good experience overall. If you... More

Greeting upon arrival was nice. When we got up to the room it had been half cleaned and we had to wait like grapes for the person who I guessed was the manager to get clean pillow cases. There was a plastic bag full of some sort of used soap on top of the toilet which had probably been left... More

My wife and I are totally dissatisfied with our stay on 27 June. Why? Curtain was inadequate to cover the window at night. Noisy, archaic and frightening pumping system for the toilet. Water pipes running vertically through the bedroom. Tiny shower unit that is impossible to enter unless you are quite small. A single socket available for plugging in anything... More

Negatives: No hot water in our bathroom sink for the duration of our stay. Other guests had same problem. Perhaps the boiler wasn't switched on as showers were electrically heated. We had a very small shower enclosure with old and wonky shower head. The shower doors didn't close. Toilet and waste water are pumped electronically from the wastes in the... More

Having booked a room six days in advance,by phone, received a call at 16.26 on day of arrival, already on route , to say " sorry mistake made, no room available". No offer of help to secure alternative.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Camera Guest House is an authentic 19th-century Victorian building situated in the leafy suburbs of South Belfast. It takes its name from the many photographers who stayed here during the 'troubles' who wanted to avoid the bigger, easily-targeted hotels. Camera Guest House is a family-run business that provides a warm welcome and makes an ideal base for both leisure and business visitors. ... more   less
