    Historical Traveler Reviews Benedicts Hotel Belfast

    Valentines weekend never to forget

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Very hospitable

    from

    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!!!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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...

    Excellent value......

    from

    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........

    Fabulous

    from

    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.

Well, much to our disappointment, Belfast is no different than Scotland; no children after 8pm, which means no music for us :( We decide to just eat at our hotel, a Ramada, the only American style hotel we'll be staying at this whole trip, but there has been a wedding and all the guests are taking up what few tables they have and so we ...

    Today we left Glasgow and headed for Belfast. To get to Belfast we needed to drive a few hours across Scotland to the ferry terminal in Cairnryan. Unfortunately we got caught in traffic due to a motorcycle vs car accident we were literally only 4km away from the ferry terminal but we were stuck in traffic for over an hour and a half! A helicopter came and collected the driver of the motorcycle and when we drove past the scene we saw the motorbike was literally in half. The actually ...

    ... to hit Angel station. A short 5 minute walk took me to Joe's door. He was packing and getting everything finalised for our trip. We then went for a few pre-trip drinks in a bar called Prague. We enjoyed, funnily enough, a few Czech beers that were sure to smooth the road ahead for us.
