Our stay in The Old Rectory nicely decorated and ensured our visit of Belfast. The Old Rectory situates very well off Belfast centre, but the bus or taxi connection makes the distance from city centre negligible. Bus stations in both directions are nearby the entrance from the

My friend and I stayed at the Old Rectory for 5 days. It was a delightful stay. Breakfasts were always great. The rooms were clean and we loved the view from our window. Aine was very helpful when we had questions about the local area, bus and eating places.

Do you have air conditioning for hot days?
HI R Bruce, Yes as Mike H mentioned we don't normally have weather like this in Belfast, not since the 70s anyway! So no air-con, but we do have some fans for the rooms on the upper floors. Best, Old Rectory

Hi there Anne, You can take the 8A, 8B, 8C buses from directly opposite the guesthouse into the city centre, where you can alight at the Europa bus station. They run about every 15/ 20 mins and the journey takes about 10/15 mins depending on traffic. A day bus ticket costs £3.40 (A single £2.00) and will take you on all the buses in the city, you can pay in cash on the bus and they will provide change. To continue on to the Titanic exhibition, you can alight right in the city centre (last stop, by City Hall) and then take the 26, 26B, 26C to the Titanic Quarter (they run every 12 mins at peak times, every 25 mins off peak), this journey takes about 10 mins. When returning to the Old Rectory, our stop is Myrtlefield Park, there is an electronic sign at the front of the bus which will display the stops. We look forward to welcoming you here at the Old Rectory soon! Travel safely.

"I was accommodated with satisfaction in the room #5, however I believe that it was a standard for all other rooms."
"best breakfast! so many options!"
"If you need en suite rooms, please request this when booking. All bedrooms are upstairs."
"If stairs pose a challenge, you can request ground floor accommodations."
"On a main road, so presume rear rooms would be quieter than our twin room. But it didn't stop a good night's sleep."
