We stayed here overnight, prior to going to the Stone Roses concert just down the road.
On the plus side, the Guesthouse was well positioned to the centre of Belfast &, as a Victorian Terraced property, had character. Our room was pleasant enough, if a bit jaded & was certainly big enough. The staff were also cordial & chatty.
However..... for starters, the bed wasn't as comfortable as it should have been & sloped, (I nearly fell out at one point! I'm over 6 foot, but that shouldn't have happened!) & the en-suite shower was useless. If you wanted any heat, the pressure became almost non-existant. The breakfast, though ample wasn't a full one, so if you want rashers, sausages & pudding, forget it.
Worst of all though was the fact that we were awoken 3 times in the night, 2.30. 4.00 & 6.30 a.m.
This obviously wasn't the fault of the staff, who can't legislate for ignorant & thoughtless guests. However, because the owners/staff weren't about, nothing could be done to address this. I did talk to someone in the morning, who I think was one of the owners & they were most understanding, but I was a bit too cranky at that stage.
Look this place is OK, but it's not great. I'll be looking elsewhere when I next go to Belfast.
