I stayed one night here with my 2 children. We booked last minute as I had made a mistake on a flight booking from Dublin. Luckily I got seats from Belfast airport, but had to stay in Belfast the night before. We got a taxi from Europa Bus Station, which cost around 7 pounds i think. There is a bus... More

Maybe we caught these folks on a bad day, but to say they were not warm, welcoming or friendly is an understatement. There are much nicer people deserving of the business in Belfast. It's a little further from the City Centre than advertised in the guide we bought and used as a recommendation - wound up paying for cabs. Overpriced,... More

A very friendly run B&B only a short drive from Belfast City Center. Upon arrival the hosts made you feel very comfortable and advised us of all close amenities. the room was clean with views of the well maintained garden. Would definitely stay again.

Located in a quiet neighborhood, a short cab ride into downtown Belfast. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. Our host was rather preoccupied, and always seemed to be in a rush. However, he was very quick and kind in giving us a few pounds for our cab ride to downtown and dinner, until we were able to exchange our... More

For our first B&B during our two weeks in Ireland we were met by Mannix III, a very accommodating and gracious young man. He showed us the guest parts of this very cosy manse, and then took our bags up to our rooms, explaining the amenities (such as the wi-fi) the whole way. Our rooms were spacious and warm on... More

I was on the top floor and I found that it had lots of light and space. I had an en suite bathroom which was a decent size. There was also a television, coffee maker; all the things you would expect in a hotel. Given that this is a bed and breakfast I was very happy with the facilities. The... More

Somerton House was a nice little place to stay- I was only in Belfast for a few days, but this was a nice quiet place to relax and wind down at the end of the day. I had an odd little room up in the gables of the house- but it was cute- it had character. And the bathroom was... More
