“Pleasant and comfortable stay”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

My daughter and I stayed at Maranatha House over a weekend in November. Arrived early evening on Friday and Kelly was very pleasant and friendly and immediatey and after showing us to our room on our request got us a taxi so we could get something to eat at a nearby pub. Our room was clean and comfortable as was the rest of the house with little touches that you would not expect, the breakfast was good and plentiful. There was a lounge especially for guests with a homely atmosphere and a laptop and printer for our use. The Maranatha is situated opposite Ormeau Park and a 15 minutes walk over the Albert Bridge into city centre. We found it ideally placed for Belfast and with Kelly's good knowledge of Belfast we found everywhere easily with her instructions and maps she had given us, nothing was too much trouble.

I stayed at Maranatha House for a long weekend, the staff there were lovely and very helpful, telling us all about the area and what to do. Breakfast was delicious and there was lots of choice, the staff in the kitchen even made me a sandwich to take away as I was not hungry but did not want to miss out. The room itself was very nice, we were at the top of the house, the bed was large and very comfortable and clean. The B&B is just outside the town but it is a very walkable distance, generally very good.

I stayed at the Maranatha Guest House with my friend and we were pleasantly surprised. The room was more like a hotel than B&B. Very clean room with all you could need. Kelly, the owner was extremely nice and very helpfull. I had to leave for an appointment the next morning by 7.40am and she got up 1/2hr early to make my breakfast, she even threw in an extra egg as she knew I wouldn't be able eat after my dentist appointment. :-)

I really enjoyed my stay at this place. Kelly was very helpful and very knowledgeable of the area for shopping,tours,etc. She called cabs for us, as needed.Brochures of tourist attractions were available in the house. The sitting room was very nice and had a computer and printer for guest use. This was a nice feature, especially when you had to print tickets for events. The breakfast was very good and filled you up until dinner time.The menu had a wide variety to suit anyone. Her kitchen staff was also very nice and helpful. I would reccomend this place to anyone staying in the Belfast area. Ormeau Park is across the street and a very beautiful area for a nice walk. Kelly was very accomodating with all of our needs.

This B&B is a cut above in many ways. The bedroom we stayed in, the dining room and the living room were all clean, well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast menu was varied and delicious - not the standard Irish breakfast fare we had experienced throughout our two week stay in Ireland. Kelly, the manager/owner was more than gracious in helping us navigate the Ryanair website (another story without a good ending), allowed us to stay and use the sitting room, called us a black taxi for a tour, and was just friendly and helpful on all accounts. We left there feeling well cared for and greatful for having found such a nice place and experience.

The best B & B we've ever stayed in. Spotless accommodation, comfortable bed, perfect Ulster Fry for breakfast made for a most enjoyable three nights. Kelly and Myrtle could not have possibly been more helpful to two people who knew next to nothing about Belfast other than the airport or motorway.

Touring Europe over 8 weeks we are staying at many B&Bs. Maranatha House would be up there with the best. It is a well maintained, clean and professionally run business with all the personal touches that make a good B&B. Hosts Kellie and Dennis are extra helpful and seem to genuinely enjoy their guests. Breakfast is varied and delicious and plentiful. For a small charge Kellie washed and dried some laundry we desperately needed. Thanks Kellie!

Room Tip: It is 3 stories so if steps are a problem ask for a lower floor.
