I stay in a variety of hotels and guest houses on business, usually for a night or two and this is one of the best I have found. From the moment I arrived to the point of leaving the host was helpful without being intrusive, even offered to drive me to a restaurant as it was raining (I borrowed a...

My colleague and I come to Belfast once a month for work and started out in an hotel, however we haven't looked back since moving to the Old Rectory B&B. The rooms are great, the beds extremely comfortable and the breakfasts very good indeed (favourite so far is the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Mary and Gerry are lovely to...

We have stayed twice at 'this B&B and the hosts are utterly lovely. They are happy to make dinner reservations, book taxis and give advice of what to do. The breakfast is truly awesome with about 15 different options on the menu - I loved the scrambled eggs with salmon and my husband enjoyed porridge with honey and Irish whiskey....

A friendly welcome, pleasant rooms, excellent service and a top-class breakfast. Direct bus to city center, 10-15 minutes walk to the Lisburn Road shops. Also a good base for walks along the Lagan river!

This B&B was equipped with more then we anticipated. Not only were all the staff extremely kind, welcoming and friendly - they answered all our questions and even arranged us rides. The breakfast is very well prepared and in a lovely room. The rooms are done nicely and each room has their own private bath. I would highly recommend this...

Stayed at the Old Rectory whilst visiting our daughter at Queens - really handy for the university and the city. For quality of accommodation and food you won't find better in Belfast - guaranteed! - will come again whenever we visit Belfast.

We just never felt completely at ease. The "house rules" were something not encountered in any of the 17 other b&B's on this extensive trip.....Leave your room key as you go out. Tell us precisely what you want for breakfast tomorrow, and at what time....etc. These were some of the things which were a bit annoying. The price also seemed...

Dear Tripadvisor user, I'm terribly sorry that you didn't feel at ease here, as we endeavour to make all our guests feel at home. We do ask guests to choose their breakfast the night before, only because we have such an extensive breakfast menu, with 16 options and we aim to freshly prepare everything and keep waste to a minimum....
