... that chunk of land at him. The myth says that the steps were created by the Irish giant Fin MacCool so he could walk over to Scotland and fight its giant. So once it was built and he got to Scotland and saw how big the giant was and ran home. Once he got home he got in his baby's crib and pretended to be a baby. So when Scotland's giant came over and saw how big his baby was he couldn't imagine how big the dad must be, so he ran all the way home destroying ...
... we were going to ask on the streets of Belfast...but.....later we talked on the stairs and his voice dropped to a whisper as he explained that his Great grandfather has been a founder of the Orange Order...which had originally been designed as a Christian organization for young men...with very Christian values...he explained that it had become militant later...I asked why he was whispering....he just said that Catholics might overhear and become upset. So with that ...
This morning I was up, packed, and ready to catch the bus to Belfast by 8:00. The bus runs almost hourly, but I wasn't catching the bus until 12:00. That way I got into Belfast at 13:45 and could check-in at my next B&B at 14:00. Since I was ready to go so early I headed down to the breakfast room about 8:15 to see if anyone was around. I had never been told what time they actually started serving, but I was obviously too early as they were ...

... was a beautiful stretch of coast. It rained an gusted the whole time but we loved it. Michelle couldn't understand why we were excited about the rain and didn't mind getting soaked, so we had to explain about droughts and failed crops and people committing suicide because their farms are dead. It was so cold by the time we had seen the causeway that we headed straight for the nearest pub, which luckily was just at the top of the hill. I thought it was the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Belfast City Queens Quarter
Friendly clean and a great bar to
Advertised as a budget hotel this exceeded expectations, from the friendly greeting on arrival to the efficent checking out this was a good experience. The unexpected gem was Chambers the attached bar / restaurant that has a wonderful atmosphere and served up the best meal I have had in a long while. Only stayed the one night but breakfast was also good, even though we were not down till almost the end of the session yet there was still plenty of everything available and hot. Ok the hotel isnt 5star luxury but it never claims to be, but for its price location and overall presentation it was perfect for me and I wouldnt hesitate to book there again
If you are part of a stag or hen party then this hotel will be ok for you.
If you like to sleep at night then think again
Terrible customer service - Never going again
Have stayed at this hotel previously without any issues - central, quiet, good varied breakfast, clean basic rooms, same as other holiday inn expresses basically. However had the misfortune to stay there recently. All was fine - myself and my room mate went to have showers late Sunday morning prior to our late check out (and going for a flight) and shower was cold - phoned reception, assured that it would be fine shortly, staff visted room, checked and said try in a few minutes and it would work .... did so, still cold .... phoned reception again, gave up waiting and started to use shower .... told was an issue on whole of floor (worrying as we were a late check out, could a hotel run out of warm water) told could use another room .... but on separate floor and over other side of hotel .... it was the indignation that we were greeted with when we checked out which was the most galling. I know that all hotels can have problems but to be greeted by a smile from one member of staff and a shrug from another when we stated that we were not happy with what happened is insulting ... it may be minor but, in my view, shows a lack of respect for paying customers! NEVER GOING THERE AGAIN
Great breakfast! friendly staff
We enjoyed our stay knowing this was a budget hotel.Not too far from the city centre and reasonably priced.Clean well kept, overall good value!
Good except heat and noise
Stayed two nights on one of many business trips to Belfast. The Hotel is located close to many resturants in the University district of South Belfast. Reception staff are efficient and welcoming. A cooked breakfast buffet was included in room price.
My room was reasonably comfortable but not very large. Everything worked. Bathroom was a basic "wet room" design and the shower with its mini skirt curtain did just that - soaked the whole floor.
It was summer, the room was hot and aircon seemed absent. I had to open the window for ventiation which let in traffic noise from busy road outside the front of the property. Also the walls, and doors adjoining rooms, have inadequate soundproofing. A noisy neighbour kept me awake until I phoned him to complain.
Whilst a bargain, I prefer a hotel where I can sleep undisturbed.
Great Value Hotel
I stayed for four nights. Its very good value. The Buffet Breakfast was excellent, a good variety of food and always well stocked.
The staff were generally very young, always had a smile and were very very helpful.
My room was adequate and the shower was good, maintaining a good pressure at all times.
For the money charged, this is a really good value Hotel.
Its only a short walk from the Centre of Belfast.
This hotel is as described in the previous reviews, bland (and why not?), efficient, and in a nice neighborhood. The early morning continetal self-service breakfast was excellent - and self service is a great improvement on porr service. I was delighted with the good value that this hotel represents - so as it delivers exactly what it promises - I rate it excellent.
Predictable, reliable....and bland
This is very much the standard Holiday Inn Express experience. Rooms are reliably functional, if a little bland. The hotel is 'non-service', so don't expect the fripperies that 3*+ hotels normally provide (and normally charge the earth for).
That said, the location is good, in a salubrious student-dominated suburb within easy access of the city centre and a five minute walk from the very appealing bars and restaurants of Malone Road and Botanic Avenue.
If you want a reliable hotel at modest cost in an appealing location, this is the place for you; if you're after something with character, try elsewhere.
We stayed in the Holiday Inn Express in Belfast on 5th February 2005. The Hotel was in an excellent location as there are really good bars and restaurants nearby. We initially were given a room that was supposed to be non smoking which smelt quite strongly of smoke and the lights didn't work, but this was quickly resolved and we were given another room that was ok except it had a shower for the disabled. Apart from this the hotel was clean, the staff were v helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.
Clean and comfortable
A clean and comfortable place to stay, decent double room with cable tv, decent bathroom and competent staff who all seemed very young and inexperienced but nonetheless competent. The place is built from a hotel template so there will be no pleasant surprises here, you get what you expect but nothing else... which is fine. No room service.
They have a carpark which is handy for this city.
