We stayed here for one night and picked Somerton House as it was close to the ferry terminal for our early morning ferry. We were delighted with the room: it was large, light with plenty of windows, nice furnishings and a functional bathroom. However, we did find the shower a bit tricky to control. We liked the quiet area and enjoyed our walk to Belfast Castle. As it is in a mostly residential area, the dining options are few and far between, but being close to the ferry was our main requirement. We left too early to sample the breakfast. Mannis was welcoming and helpful.

We recently visited belfast and had a lovely stay at somerton house. Mannix was very welcoming and recommended places to visit such as st George's market. Somerton House was a lovely bed and breakfast, not too far from the city centre. The breakfast provided was perfect with the option of a cooked breakfast or fruit and cereal. Would definitely recommend belfast and somerton house to others!

We have been three times already to somerton House and each time it has been perfect. Can't ask for anything more. We feel so at home here and Mannix can't do enough for you. We wouldn't stay anywhere else now. Such good value for money and breakfast is fantastic, back in February and looking forward to it.

Somertton House was perfect for my needs in Belfast recently. I arrived fairly late and was shown to my room by a young man who made sure I was aware of all they had to offer. As I had to make an early start in the morning, the young man booked me a taxi which turned up exactly on time the following morning. The room had everything I needed and represented very good value.

The location was very handy for Belfast. Our manager enjoyed the stay. The staff were very friendly during booking and at the B & B. The only drawback was that breakfast was not until 8 and this was too late for him. It would be good to be advised of this time for breakfast in advance. Gale

B&B owners were lovely and the breakfast was good. Unfortunately our room wasn't particularly clean, and it didn't have a dressing table, only 1 mirror hanging above the tv, so it made getting ready for the wedding we were attending difficult. Not impressed that my booking and card details were stored by the booking process and then released to another couple staying at the b&b. Had to cancel my card and was reliant on the good nature of the other couple that nothing worse happened with my credit card details.

Mannix put our friends and us in one of the apartments across the street so we had privacy and a kitchen and living room in which to enjoy each other. The staff was wonderful and our accommodations were more than adequate. We really enjoyed our stay there. Mannix was also helpful in telling us how to get to places since we were using public transportation.

I much enjoyed my stay at the Somerton House. The rooms were clean, spacious, and had a sink. It is somewhat inconvenient to have to go down one flight of stairs to access the toilet or shower, but that was not such a severe problem. This was by no means the kind of bed and breakfast where the staff is looking over your shoulder and you feel as though you have no privacy. The breakfast setup was also lovely. Overall, a very positive experience.

When booking I informed you of my intention to leave early to catch the 0730 ferry. I was not therefore in a position to have breakfast. I was charged the full price for b&b. It would have been nice to have been offered a sandwich or light snack to have on the ferry. Otherwise I was happy with my stay.

I booked a comfortable single room with on suite. It was a loft extension room. In a hot summer this might be a problem if you used the room during the day. The windows were open when I arrived in the evening because it was a hot day. This is probably why 5 out of the 8 individual small milk cartons were off. Very nice helpful staff. I did not have time to mention but the maid would have seen all the empty cartons. The shower door was in need of repair consequently I flooded the floor. Nice B&B and I would use it again.
