Originally owned in the 1950's by Mrs Caldwell, Cranethorpe House developed into The Park Avenue Hotel Belfast. In 1962 Mrs Caldwell retired and the Park Avenue was bought by the Stephens family; who prior to this acquisition were renowned for their outside catering business 'Cambridge Caterers'.
This 4 star Belfast hotel progressed in 1963 with the addition of the Cambridge Rooms, being a 5000 sq ft ballroom and sitting adjacent to the main hotel.
The Park Avenue hotel Belfast ran in it's original form until the 19th February 1964 when it was tragically burnt to the ground, leaving way for the erection of the new hotel, which reopened in June 1967 with 39 bedrooms.
In the early 80's this luxury Belfast hotel developed further when the 'Chalet' was demolished and the Oxford Suite emerged as a function room of 3100 sq. ft, which could be divided into three separate areas. Taking advantage of this new area an additional 14 ensuite bedrooms were built on top of the Oxford Suite. In the early 80's the 'Cambridge Rooms' underwent major refurbishment along with the hotel bedrooms. Still wanting to progress and keep up with demand an additional 17 ensuite bedrooms were built in the early 1990's, along with renovations in the Hotel Ballroom and the major redevelopment of the foyer and reception entrance.
The Park Avenue 4 star hotel in Belfast as it exists today, a luxury hotel, on 3 acres of its own grounds, has a total of 56 ensuite bedrooms with extensive conference and banqueting facilities.
