“Fantastic guest house”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We booked two nights at this guest house after seeing the other reviews on tripadvisor and we are pleased to report that it did not disappoint! The location is great, it is walking distance or a short bus ride to the centre of Belfast but in a nice, quiet area with plenty of shops/cafes/restaurants nearby. The room was perfect, very clean and well maintained. Breakfast was delicious, with a good selection of hot and cold food, and Alice was a very friendly and helpful host. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Great location for Belfast city centre, clean comfortable room, excellent breakfast. Alice was a very friendly host with lots of knowledge of the area, the rest of the staff were lovely too especially Mark. A little gem, great place to stay. Will be back on our next visit to Belfast.

Avenue Guesthouse is a gem! Many B&Bs in cities are small, but Avenue is spacious, clean and comfortable. Its location in South Belfast is convenient for accessing the center city, and is close to many restaurants, bars, and sights. Alice was a great host, welcoming us to the city with maps and ideas for activities. She was very professional and flexible with us. Avenue offers an extensive breakfast menu, and the food is delicious! I would highly recommend Avenue to anyone visiting Belfast!

This guesthouse has very comfortable rooms and makes a great place to stay for access to the center of the city.

Eglantine Ave is in the University are and is just off Lisburn Road - a nice quiet area of the city with lots of restaurants near-by for evening meals.

We (staying as a family) had a fantastic welcome and the owners were very helpful with local info.

Breakfast was great - Set us up for the day !

Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed her two nights In June, 2013. Alyce put us in the top room which was a bit of a climb but absolutely beautifully appointed. It was full of light, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding, and Alyce is extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this guest house.

Room Tip: If you don't mind climbing stairs, the top room is lovely.

I stayed at the Avenue for one night when attending a work reunion. Having looked for a low cost hotel and their adverts about £39.00 rooms, the actual cost was in excess of £70.00 for any of them.

A Google search for Belfast Guest Houses resulted in the Avenue and I was persuaded by it's rating on Tripadvisor. I booked on-line at £50.00 b&b. On arrival, I was shown to my room, which had a double and single beds and was really spacious, taking in two bay windows right across the front of the house.

The level of decoration is just as good as any 4 Star hotel and the facilities included a 32 inch TV with DVD player and a fridge. Most guest houses and hotels have good televisions these days, but many have poor ariels attached to them resulting in a limited choice of channels. This is not the case at the Avenue and there really wasn't anything that could have made my stay more enjoyable.

Breakfast the following morning was just as good with cereal and a cooked breakfast with plenty of toast and excellent coffee. On occasions when I have an overnight in Belfast, I'll not be looking anywhere else!

There were 4 of us in our group and we booked 2 rooms for 3 nights. The rooms were both very charming, clean, and quiet. The breakfasts were delicious, with lots of choices. The Inn itself was ideally located to getting around Belfast. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again in future visits.
