Historical Traveler Reviews Benedicts Hotel Belfast
Valentines weekend never to forget
booked in on the saturday to make a weekend of it.
the executive rooms are nothing short of stunning.
the food in the resteraunt was fabulous and the extra touches like the rose for the ladies and glass of champagne just finished it off
i would recomend it to anyone going to belfast as all the staff i encountered
were very courtious and professional
EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY
I stayed at Benedicts Hotel on 05/01/2005 with my faince who treated me to a night out in Belfast for my birthday. This hotel came highly recommenede and i was not disappointed. The food, service and the room was great. I was best pleased with the luxury and comfort of the executive room and at only £75 B&B sure who could complain at that.
On comparison i stayed at The Holiday Inn, Ormeau Avenue just before christmas and found the room shabby and not great value at all although the food was good. The room to say the least was not clean with stains on the settee, carpet and mould around the bath. I did not even bother completing a comment card as it appeared to me that the room had been like that for quite some time.
BUT I WILL DEFINATELY STAY AT BENEDICTS AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Honest personal experience
We stayed in Benedicts on Thursday 20th October 2004. From the moment of our arrival, I found one member of staff (who shall remain nameless as I don't want ANYONE losing their job) particularly condescending and extremely unhelpful. We were NOT charged what we were quoted over the phone and we could not have a cooked breakfast delivered to our room despite the fact I had specifically asked about this when booking. Might sound trivial, but we were attending a wedding on the Ormeau Rd and then travelling to Newcastle for the reception. Dinner was not served until 18:00hrs and as everyone knows, wedding days are very busy so we didn't have time to eat. Hence, our overnight stay in Belfast was ruined and all because one person was not prepared to accept responsibility with messing up our booking. Final word - don't stay in Benedicts. I will gladly respond to any comments from the management - in particular Mr Jim McLoughlin.
P.S I do not normally complain but I felt the service provided to me in this instance warranted some mention. Also, the reason for this late submission is because I have been unwell since returning home
Great food and atmosphere
I stayed recently with my husband for 2 nights in Benedicts and we had a great weekend. We had dinner in the restaurant the 1st night and it was so good we ate there the second night as well. The bar itself had a great atmosphere and had a good mix of people. The service was really good and everyone was really polite and helpful. I have recommended this hotel to many friends as it is also in a great location for shopping in the town.
All of the reviews here are correct - even the negative one! It all depends on your priorities. We had great difficulty getting to sleep in a room on the front on a Thursday night. However, subsequent nights we managed ok. Food is very good value - esp their beat the clock menu - and sometimes when you arrive somewhere you just want a bit of food and a bit of drink and a bit of people being helpful and nice to you. And that is what you get here I think. And it is near the fantastic food - and reasonably priced wine - of Cayenne. And you're a five minute walk from the Crown Liquor Saloon too!
Loved the food!!!
We recently stayed two nights in Benedicts hotel. On the first night we opted to eat in the hotel restaurant. What a good choice ......! The food was absolutely superb and the service was first class. We ended up spending the entire evening in the hotel such was their hospitality. The good food didn't stop there. Breakfast on both mornings was better than most other hotels we have stayed in.
Busy Bar with Rooms to Rent, not Boutique Hotel
I stayed 3 nights in Benedict's Hotel recently. While I agree it is good value for money, I would not be in a hurry to return here. I was pretty shocked at the noise and crowds spilling our from the humungous bar when I arrived at 10pm on a Sunday. That said, not too much of the noise filtered up to the bedroom (which was nice and big) and I maanged to get a decent night's sleep. Keep in mind this is a very busy theme pub with some rooms to rent above - not a boutique hotel. Eating breakfast at 7 am in a pub with all the smells of the previous night's exploits is not my idea of a fragrant start to the day. The chef was late for work on the second morning which meant a cooked breakfast was not to be had. Also, there is no hotel car park, although you can park outside the hotel from 6 pm to 8 am free of charge. I did this and somebody tried to rob my registration plates! On a positive note, Benedicts is very close to Cayenne, Paul Rankin's restaurant where I had a sublime meal. I also had dinner in Benedict's anther night and the food was tasty enough and good value. I am sorry to disagree so much with the comments from the other reviewers, but it just shows that we are all so varied in our expectations and needs when travelling.
WEEKEND OF BLISS
Visited the Hotel for a 3 night break and it was fantastic.Family of 3 in the Executive suite and all the mod cons available.Staff were very friendly and location was bang in the middle for what i had to do.The Reastaurant was excellant and of course the beers..("<)Would and will go back and stay when visiting again..TRY IT...
I enjoyed my stay here. The Executive room is massive, lots of storage and hanging space and they really have thought of all the little extras - ironing board, iron, nice cookies, all the toiletries etc. The breakfast is great and freshly cooked to order. I ate dinner here 3 times, and the food was brilliant - the restaurant is always full. My only complaint was that with a room on the 2nd floor and at the front, I could hear noise from the road and from the bar downstairs - so go for something on the 3rd floor at the back. I will be back........
Excellent! Stayed for 3 days last weekend, and had a wonderful time.
Value for money restaurant, busy bar and very helpful staff. What more could you ask for!! Everytime Im in Belfast, I will definately be staying at Benedicts.

... Fergus's place we still had some time to kill, being Ireland we thought this could easily be done in a bar, however these seemed as rare as hens teeth.
After a bit of a drive we finally found one but having not had lunch we were after food as well, again something that was not on the menu. Continuing our search we tried another bar that looked lively and thankfully we got some wedges and a couple of pints of the good stuff.
It was dark and wet and ...
... the station is located in the Railway Hotel, built in 1885 and she would have been an extremely grand place, beautiful brick build with elaborate windows and wrought iron trims. Looks like the doors have just been shut and everyone left never to return. Just looks so tacky now. The town of Ayr which we passed thru in the coach to Cairnryan looked very clean and tidy. Maybole town beautiful manicured and Prestwick - how many golf courses does that place have!!! Have ...
... in the day I walked around West Belfast a bit, took some cool pictures but I'll get back to this, I read all about The Troubles and the history of the neighborhood online in the hostel's lounge that night, I would go back on Saturday with a new perspective on where I was.
Saturday started with the Crumlin Road Gaol. I wrote an official review of this but for the sake of this entry I'll say it was a surreal experience. Most of the prison ...

Looking south, we could see the beautiful cliffs of Portaneevey. I got some very nice pictures from the island and then we made our way back across the bridge. The line to cross seemed longer so I was glad we had gotten there when we did. Near the bridge, we ...
... European, selling little crafts and gifts, and foods from all over. There was 2 beer tents also which we were duty bound to visit. These beer tents were ok but after visiting Oktoberfest this year they just didnt live up to the same expectations. But everyone there seemed to be having a good time so we made the most of it. Afterwards we went into some more bars in the city and eventually dragged our very tipsy selfs home! A little worse for wear the next morning we went for breakfast ...
