... other side. While there, there was a lot of protesting going on between them both. Police sat in their vehicles on the side of the roads 24 hours of the day, as trouble often occurred. We went to the Titanic museum for the afternoon. Unfortunately it was bucketing down so we were unable to walk to the large dry dock, where the Titanic was built and eventually sailed to England from. We returned to Billy and Lorraine's to prepare for our early morning train to ...
... 8217;t have worried so much about Goldilocks. The guests from the wedding had drifted away in dribs and drabs after a communal carvery lunch in Newcastle the previous day and it was just the core family who were left for the carpark pow wow before setting off to accompany Lou and Mart on their honeymoon! Yes. They said the wedding was casual so instead of disappearing on their guests they agreed to travel with us for a few more days. Their honeymoon proper will be in ...
... yet another Travelodge. We checked in to the hotel, but with an hour left on the meter Kerin and I insited we walk down to City Hall before returning to move the car. Half way through our walk another seemingly out-of-nowhere hailstorm descended upon us. At this point we were equidistant from City Hall and the car, so we just decided to trek onward. The closer we got the harder the hail fell. Luckily we were able to huddle with ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Plaza Belfast Aldergrove
other than this hotel being a two minute walk to the international airport there is no real redeeming value in this hotel. The food was over priced, the rooms where small, no mini bar, the seperate rooms for the toilet were very very small. The TV had almost as many channels announcing the airport arrivals as they did actual channels. The sheets were cheap and uncomfortable and there is no internet in the rooms. There are 2 computers in the lobby for the guests to share but only one prints. But the worst part of the hotel is that it is a thirty pound taxi fare to the city. There is nothing around the hotel. The staff was marginal at best, except for the bartenders who were easily the friendliest and most helpful of anyone who worked in the hotel. Save yourself the aggrivation stay at the Belfast hilton if you have the option.
If this is what passes for a top-quality hotel in Northern Ireland then God help us and I say this as a resident of the province for almost 30 years. The room was functional at best, contained a LOCKED fridge which required a key from reception which opened but didn't actually work, and a toilet which reminded me of a holding cell. The very handle had been put on incorrectly so it required one to almost dislocate one's wrist in order to open it.
Poor service and food
Stayed at this hotel in September 2005.
The hotel was very poor and certainly not a 4 star.
Service was particularly bad - staff didn't seem to care much. Restaurant/bar food overpriced and tasteless.
Simple things like the drinks machine not working and yet still taking money and staff not able to refund or even put a notice on the machine that it was not working !!
Try another hotel, don't go here!
I stayed here for a night befoire flying out on a 2 week holiday. I thought it would be a good idea as the room was so cheap for the night, and it turns out that was the only good thing about my stay.
Spoilt by the catering
The rooms are average,be careful when using room service as it is more expensive than most 5 star hotels carries a £3 charge per tray.Breakfast is £12 and is below average with a large number of international guests a poor selection of breads and pastries at breakfast and empty bowls were items had not been topped up during service.Overall an average 3/4 star hotel with pleasent staff but over priced on the catering .
Hotel is nice, but rooms could use some newer furniture. The restaurant is extremely expensive and always seems empty, so just eat in the bar next door.
It's a minute walk to departures.
No internet access in the rooms, but the two computers in the lobby (they call it a 'business centre, but it's far from) have good high speed internet access. They say you have 15 minutes free per day, but that is enforced and you can use it all you want for free.
Buses leave every 30 minutes to downtown, which is a 35 minute ride+.
Comfortable rooms, quite okay for one night.
But, my goodness, the food in the restaurant is ridiculously expensive. They are really having a laugh, as the prices for the main meals dont include any veg or anything!! Dont eat there, eat in the bar area, as its much more reasonable and less fussy.
Good Guiness, try it!
Not quite what I expect from a 4 star
My wife and I spent two nights in the Park Plaza over Easter. It is very close to the airport (about 50m from the exit). Staff were friendly but a little slow to attend to us - no real excuse use as the hotel was very quiet that weekend.
Main disappointment was the room - the mini bar was locked and when I asked about it I was told they were no longer in use and I should order what I wanted from room service - in fairness they gave me a key so that I could make use of the fridge. The sheet had a hole in it the towels were small and thin and one of the light switches was broken.
It was the quality I would expect from a motorway motel not a 4* Hotel
Very good Hotel
A very good hotel in a great position for the airport. Have stayed here many times and each time the stay has been good.
Have mainly used it for work and come over the night before I then have to be in Belfast. This is great as after a plane journey you just walk out of the airport and 100yds later you are in the lobby checking in.
Rooms are smart and offer good accomodation for business travellers. Food is also good.
It is not so good for people visiting Belfast for pleasure as it is a good 30mins outside of the city.
Finally do not worry about the noise from the airport, once you are in the hotel you cannot hear any noise from the planes.
Excellent All Round Hotel
Stayed here on the 22nd Aug 2002. Had our wedding reception here. We were given a honeymoon suite free, as we were flying out early the next morning. The hotel was very clean, very well furnished, and very high standard. The staff where excellently trained, and very professional, courteous and friendly. All our family members stayed overnight and they all share the same opinion that the hotel was excellent. The wedding breaskfast was superb, a sterling service, and a quality experience.
