The Old Rectory is a charming proper old school B and B style house. The rooms are quaint and gorgeous. The breakfast, especially the famous Ulster Fry is just outstanding. It's perfectly situated in a lovely leafy part of the city close to the university. It has some parking available too. Highly recommended. Real old fashioned Northern Ireland hospitality. Tip:...

We spent 2 nights at the Old Rectory and absolutely loved it. Our room was spacious, bright, and had absolutely everything we needed. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. And the breakfast was just fabulous! We cannot wait until our next stay.

We were a family of 7 visiting Belfast for 4 days. The Old Rectory is located in a nice area outside the city center. There's a bus stop very close by. (And a cab to/from the city center is also quite inexpensive, at least compared to what I'm used to, which is Norwegian prices). The hosts were friendly and service...
