I highly recommend Ravenhill Guesthouse to anyone staying in Belfast. The location was very convenient (both to sights in Belfast and sights further north). Several restaurants are within walking distance as well, making it easy to eat after a long day. But the best thing about Ravenhill is the breakfast. The owners offer guests a menu of options the night before, and then it is ready for you when you are ready for breakfast. Everything was fabulous, from the tea to the homemade oatmeal to the french toast.The owners offered other special touches, such as tea and cookies in each room.I'll also note that the owners were very patient with me, as my arrival time kept changing. They never made me feel as if I was inconveniencing them.I can't say a bad thing about Ravenhill. I give it the highest marks.

We stayed here for two nights on our trip to Belfast. We had a very warm welcome, including tea and lovely home made biscuits and a quick introduction from Olive to some of the things to see in Belfast. The rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely presented. Breakfast was great with a choice of cooked options and a good selection of cereals and several different types of home made bread - wow! Ravenhill is very well positioned in terms of access to the main sites of Belfast. The bus into town is only 5 minutes walk away. You can buy a ticket on board which lasts the whole day, costing £3.50.All in all, Ravenhill is a great option for anyone wanting to spend a few days in the lovely city of Belfast.

Ravenhill guesthouse was a beautiful property, old style residence but modern inside, comfortable beds, room was spacious and bathroom well appointed. There was off-street parking which was a great boon. Roger and Olive were great hosts and we really enjoyed our time there - though quite brief!Vicki Matthews
Reviewer:Vicki Matthews | Thu 15th Mar 2018
Dont bypass Belfast on your trip to Ireland. There's so much to see and explore and Ravenhill Guesthouse is the perfect spot to rest in between. Ravenhill is perfectly situated for easy access to all Belfast has to offer - definitely the best city we've found for ease of navigation! The rooms are well appointed, comfortable and the breakfasts delicious. You will even find off street parking for your rental car. Roger and Olive are wonderful hosts and will ensure your stay in Belfast is memorable for all the right reasons. If the luck of the Irish finds me and I can get back to Belfast, I would stay here again!
Reviewer:Dianne G | Thu 15th Mar 2018
A very warm welcome from Roger who showed us to our room at the front of this Victorian house, the room was warm and the bed extremely comfortable. We were given advice of the local eateries - all within walking distance and a huge and varied choice!There is parking and the city centre is an easy bus ride away.Breakfast was superb, everything was home made and delicious and reflected the care and hospitality of the owners.Avoid corporate city centre hotels and stay at Ravenhill - well worth finding!
Reviewer:Dianne48 | Thu 15th Mar 2018
Everything works perfectly here and even the smallest details have been thought through to ensure a relaxing stay in a period house. Roger and Olive made us very welcome from the outset and gave us excellent tips about both sightseeing and restaurants. The breakfasts are delicious and include many home made treats such as the granola, muesli , breads and freshly squeezed orange juice. My fresh banana drizzled in honey on home made bread with almond butter made me feel very spoilt . Even the milk for your room comes in hygienic dinky screw top mini glass bottles . The shower is a myopic bather's delight as it is both large and simple to operate without glasses .The bed was very large and comfortable and our room was all restrained William Morris i.e. the strawberry thief and willow wall paper but without dark Victorian paint and heavy furniture. All spotlessly clean too and even the toiletries are top of the range.It is a short bus ride into town but the advantage for us was off street parking and no need to drive into the centre of an unfamiliar city. There are many good eateries close by too on Ormeau Road.
Reviewer:Dorisdoormouse | Thu 15th Mar 2018
From the very warm welcome to the day of my departure I could not have asked for anything more. This is a relaxing and well organised guest house. My single room (I was in Belfast on business) was quiet and relaxing-with a good work area (not large but entirely adequate). The breakfast experience is superb-the food is excellent and the attentiveness is just right i.e.entirely helpful but never intrusive.
Reviewer:RodTravels | Thu 15th Mar 2018
Roger was excellent in his attitude, cheerfulness and helpfulness. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This was a great place to start our 14 day trip to Ireland. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. The breakfast was first class and the location worked great for us.
Reviewer:Berkley L | Tue 28th Nov 2017
I had an unexpected overnight work trip to Belfast and stayed in Ravenhill. I had a really lovely stay and Roger was extremely helpful and very accommodating to me, I am a vegan and was concerned about breakfast options however I was completely spoilt for choice with plenty of options including a gorgeous fruit salad, porridge, almond butter toast as well as really good coffee. Roger also very kindly left almond milk in the fridge outside the room so I could enjoy a cuppa at night. All in all a lovely stay in a beautiful place. would highly recommend staying here! The room was spotless and really cosy.
Reviewer:NicolaW | Tue 10th Oct 2017
Ravenhill House is located in a residential area, just a short walk to a street with a wide variety of restaurants. Our host Roger provided a warm welcome and orientation to the house and the neighbourhood. Our room was sunny and inviting with a bow-window seating area looking out to the front garden. We enjoyed the tasty and filling breakfasts, which included fresh fruits and breads, plus a choice of cooked items ranging from kippers and eggs to the full Irish breakfast.We took a taxi to get to the Titanic Belfast for its early-bird admission, but were easily able to walk back through the downtown area, visit the Ulster Museum and nearby gardens, and go back to Ravenhill over the course of the day. There is also good bus service from this B&B.

Reviewed 25 May 2017My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely home in a residential neighborhood for 2 nights in late April. Upon arrival we were greeted by Olive who welcomed us with tea and a lovely fire in the fireplace. She was very helpful in planning the activities during our brief stay and recommended a great place for dinner at the First Floor, a BYO that was a brief walk away.We were fortunate in that we were the only ones staying that night so after dinner we were able to add another log to the fire and enjoyed an album from their great music collection in the living room. We felt like we were staying in our own home.The next morning we met Rodger who prepared a delicious breakfast that prepared us for our visit to the Titanic museum and hop-on-hop off tour of Belfast. He also gave us a brief history of what is was like living in Belfast for the past 20 years.If your travels take you to Belfast do yourself a favor and stay at this charming B&B run by two great people!!!

We live in the area and have booked friends in here in the past, so I was happy to secure a room for one night for a guest speaker from GB, attending an event.This is a good location, on a main traffic route so easy to find but really quiet at night.'Our man' said the welcome was terrific, the bed was really comfortable, he liked the ambience and was amazed by the breakfast.Our guest took the contact details so he can bring his wife to stay for a longer visit (it was his first time in Belfast)so definitely 5+ stars to Roger &Olive!
Reviewer:Mrs. Anne Given | Fri 25th Mar 2016
Staying at Roger and Olivia's house is like coming home to a wonderful place where you can get a great start into your day after having had a good night rest in one of the lovely decorated rooms and charged up with yummy and healthy food including home baked breads, fruits and muesli or hot dishes. Dietary requirements are taken gladly into consideration which helps me a lot since I have to be gluten free, dairy free and sugar free. Coming home after a long day and getting greeted with a nice cup of tea, being able to relax in their comfy living room and than retiring in a cozy bed is what I call feeling welcome and at home.

Always a warm welcome.The rooms are comfortable and well appointed (where else would you get a proper big bath towel?), the service is always good and the breakfast excellent.It's a convenient location (twenty minutes by bus into town, and handy for major road routes to the S and E);there are local shops and restaurants five minutes' walk away, and a large shopping centre just up the road if there's something you need.But most of all it's somewhere I (as a regular visitor) feel welcomed and can relax in comfort.I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Belfast.

We booked a cosy attic room for one night. It was as luxurious as any top class hotel with the thickest white towels we've ever used. The welcome from Olive was warm and friendly. The tray of tea and home-made biscuits was also a kind touch. Breakfast was amazing, mostly home-made and all freshly prepared to order. We cannot fault this guesthouse and would definitely stay again. Nigel apologises for inadvertently taking our room key away with us. It has now been returned by post!

Overall, highly recommended.

I stayed here for one night. Was late arriving and met with a warm friendly smile and a personal first name welcome by Roger. House has an excellent finish but kept true to its period. Comfortable private room with beautiful en suite. The extra touches made the room and surroundings a hotel standard but with a little bit more character.Breakfast was a pleasure. Nice to have a cup of tea from a nice classic cup. Dining room was spotless and had a touch of class.Check out was pain free.I would highly recommend Ravenhill.

We found the welcome warm - it was great to be offered a cup of tea on arrival by Olive. The room was comfortable, warm (a bit too hot the first night) but sorted by turning off all radiators and opening the skylight. Breakfast was excellent. The room was quiet at night - despite being on a main road, but wth the skylight open - the early morning traffic was noticeable from about 6am onwards but not overly intrusive. Surprisingly the dawn chorus of birds woke us before the traffic - which was not unpleasant.Parking off road. Roger gave good advice in terms of what to do for a couple of spare hours locally.
