I had provided a very positive review of the Farset some time ago and you can see details of that by checking out my previous submissions. Some of what I wrote then still stands but I'm afraid a recent experience of the Farste Hotel requires a significant re-review. I made a booking via email on for a Saturday in July... More

Every time I have stayed in Belfast I have stayed at the Farset. The value for money is outstanding and the friendliness of the staff is second to none. What you see is what you get from the Farset and it is an ideal base for exploring the city. Would always recomment this place to anyone going to Belfast.

Booked the Farset after it was recommended by a friend. Absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean and well kept. The breakfast was amazing and really enjoyed by all. The staff were terrific, nothing was too much bother for them. Thanks Ruth and her staff. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a clean and affordable place... More

Always bring my school groups here due to friendliness n value n location. Out of city centre on Springfield Road between communities. Wonderful view across pond of distant Belfast. Breakfast included and can arrange for take out lunches and dinners on location.

Stayed here for 5 nights recently and frankly it was pretty poor. The lady who I believe manages the place was very nice indeed and would go out of her way to assist you. The rooms were a bit manky with mould on the shower curtain, mouldy lamp covers, blood on the sheets, no new towels, bin never emptied in... More

The Farset had a very friendly and homie enviroment. The staff went above and beyond to make sure that our group of 13 was comfortable and well feed. Ruth made sure we had croissants in the morning and they were the fresh out of the oven. The continental breakfast was good with a yogurts, fruits, cheese, cereal, coffee, tea, milk,... More

The rooms were spacious and clean. Ruth was amazing! We had a group of 13 staying at the Farset, and she took such good care of us. The breakfast was small but very nice with warm croissants. There is only wifi in the lobby though.
