Professional and attentive staff

The hotel’s staff members are highly praised for their professionalism and friendly demeanour. Guests feel welcome the moment they arrive and this feeling continues throughout a stay here. Guests are also impressed with the housekeeping staff and the way they keep the rooms and public spaces clean and tidy.

Outstanding breakfast

Guests are very satisfied with the Express Start Breakfast offered each day. They comment that the food is generous in quantity and is also varied with tasty options ranging from freshly cooked bacon and eggs to lighter choices such as cereals and pastries.

Convenient location in Belfast

The hotel is located in the Queen’s Quarter and guests find this suitable for their needs. Queen’s University Belfast Campus is within walking distance and the city center is about a mile away.

Negative Reviews

Car parking issues

The hotel has its own car park and this is a useful amenity for those guests with a vehicle. However, they mention that it can sometimes be tricky finding a space as it operates on a first come, first served basis.

Rooms on the small side

In an ideal world, guests would like to have a bit more space in the rooms. Larger families, in particular, find that the rooms are a bit tight with limited storage space.

Can be a little noisy

Not a major issue, but at times guests are disturbed by banging doors and noise from other guests.
