Scotland to Ireland

A travel blog entry by jasndan

So it was another early start up 6.30am bags out and breakfast at 7.15am or so..bus departing for a city Tour of Glasgow. It was weird doing a city tour on a Saturday morning at 8.30am. There wasn't much open and no traffic on the street. We got dropped off back in the main square by 9am when the shops were opening. Dan and I wandered down the …

We have been lucky enough to do some travelling together as well. So far, we have been to Scotland with a group of other international students (blog coming soon on that!), and a two week tour of Europe - countries including Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary (yes, blog coming soon for this trip as well.. stay tuned!).

Belfast Xmas markets

A travel blog entry by nat1198

... 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 ...

... on the city of Belfast and the time leading up to and during the building of the Titanic. Like any museum you're dealing with other tourists wandering in front of you, lingering in front of things you want to read, etc so I had to pick and choose what I was reading.

After going through the open discovery area you move into a replica area of the building shipyard and then a ride that gives you some background history on what happened in each ...

Thursday 8th of August 2013 - Edinburgh to Glasgow, Scotland One of my favourite things about this tour is the drives are not long, there are none of these 12 hour days unlike Norway. We left Edinburgh in the morning and arrived in Glasgow around midday. My first opinion of Glasgow is 'small town'. Which is rather amusing because it is Scotland's largest city, it really did not feel anywhere near as big as Edinburgh did. As we arrived too early to check in, why not check out ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Plaza, Belfast

    No Business Suit? Don' t Bother

    from

    My family and I stayed at the Ramada in Belfast in the fall of 2005. We booked the hotel through an agent in the UK and were given a very good B&B rate (compared to the listed rack rates)for 6 nites. The front desk staff was, in general, very helpful as was the concierge. However, those were the only good things about the hotel. We were on holiday in the UK from North America and not business people. I will attempt to keep my comments short and concise. We were told over the phone the hotel was 20 minutes away walking distance from the city centre, it was 20 minutes away by taxi-60 minutes walking. Everytime we tried to use our room key we had to have it re-swiped. that meant 15 extra trips to and from the front desk to our room. very frustrating!! The room itself had cracks all over the walls as if there had been an earthquake; there were coffee stains all over 3 of the walls in the room. when i nicely asked the front desk manager (older, balding)to have it cleaned up he replied snottily "yeah, uh, okay".. needless to say when we returned to the room 10 hours later a small portion of the stains, on one small wall, had been messily rubbed over. during breakfast one morning we noticed a hotel manager come out of the kitchen and pick a sausage out of the chafing dish with her fingers, even though the tongs were right on the lid that she had to take off in order to get her piggy little fingers on the sausage. The food on the breakfast buffet was adequate, however, they served the same bowl of kiwi fruit and sliced fruit for 4 days. it was slimy, congealing and disgusting. remember, this is a 4 star hotel. the food in the pub was fairly good,however,the service was horrible. unfortunately the majority of service we received was by one young lady. i don't know her name since she didn't wear a name tag. she couldn't be bothered to get you a drink, remove a plate or see if you want to order. remember, this is a 4 star hotel!! her attitude towards her job and the patrons was hostile and patronizing. Everytime we had to deal with a member of the staff we felt that because we were regular people, not business folk, we were lesser patrons. it was a horrible feeling. our bed was not changed once while we were there although it was made. All in all it was a horrible experience. we loved belfast itself, we had a great time with the people and the sites. we would NEVER return here nor would we recommend it to anyone. On a positive note, Geoff from Black Taxi tours (they are in the phone boodk) made our trip. He was awesome. Belfast was great, especially Kelly's Cellars and Benedicts and the trip to Giants Causeway was super cool!!

    Ideal if you are looking for a quiet location superb value for money

    from

    I stay in the Ramada almost every week and the hotel provides modern rooms - with a very comfortable bed and no noise at all. The swimming pool is very nice - and never too busy. The staff are friendly. The cost-quality ratio is excellent.

    On the negative side, the breakfast is mediocre, the bar lacks atmosphere and the evening food is not good. The Indian restaurant next door is quite good and reasonably priced.

    The hotel is GBP5-6 taxi ride from the centre of Belfast.

    I was impressed enough with the Ramada

    from

    I stayed in the Ramada for 3 nights with my girlfriend who was up from Co. Mayo to visit me in Belfast. We took avail of the Summer Specials offer...meaning it was only £27.50 per person per night B&B...which is not a bad price indeed!!!

    Ignore these bad reviews!

    from

    My partner and I have just returned from a 2 night stay at the Ramada Belfast and have to say that, contrary to some of the reviews here, we could not fault it at all. The room we had was comfortable, spotlessly clean and had every facility we could need. We had one of our evening meals in the Bistro and it was perfect and the breakfast had everything anyone could wish to eat. The swimming pool and fitness centre were extremely clean and well kept.We had no problems with the staff and found them helpful, courteous and pleasant and always willing to help. The hotel is not in the centre of Belfast city but that is made clear in their advertising but it is in a very nice countryside park area and the city can be reached in a few minutes by car.We will definately be going back there again and, hopefully this time, to say longer than two nights.

    30th Disaster

    from

    Do not stay in this hotel, the management are rude beyond belief. Below is a letter of complaint I have just sent to the Ramada and I doubt I will hear anything from them

    Good hotel in peaceful location

    from

    Returned to the Ramada after a gap of six months. In spite of criticisms by other people on this site, we still think this is the best place to stay in Belfast. Very peaceful location overlooking the valley of the river Lagan, close to the best part of Belfast and only two miles from the city centre. Plenty of free parking. Large, well furnished rooms and one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had in staying at more than 200 hotels all over the world.

    Particularly good location for anyone who enjoys jogging in a very beautiful area.

    Our only real complaints relate to the unreliable key cards and the fact that there seemed to be only one person on reception in the evening.

    Useless Keycards

    from

    I stayed here on business Jan 2005. I had five trips up and down to reception before I got a keycard that worked. Nice room when I finally got in!!! However it was Very cold. Finally got moved at 10pm that night-so much for my early night! Planters need to be under the stairway or you can walk into it coming out of downstairs room. I did and damaged my neck. Desk staff very pleasant but ineffectual. I got a one night complimentary stay IF I return to Belfast. Why would I? Teacher, Scotland

    Great rooms, poor service

    from

    The front of house staff were incompetent. Clearly they were in training but all seemed to have a long way to go. There were problems with the simplest things at both check-in and check-out.

    The room we had was however very good indeed. The overall design of the hotel is not very interesting.

    Don't forget that this is some way outside Belfast city centre.

    Dirty breakfast tables

    from

    Stayed a Saturday night. The rooms were fine. The health centre was excellent.

    However, service at breakfast was atrocious! We were shown to a table that had not been cleaned. The crockery was filthy: in particular, one teacup was filled with glitter and confetti, etc . I showed it to the duty manager, who offered to replace it, but was not in the least perturbed. We had to ask four times before we got coffee, and then had to ask for milk too.

    I would have filled in a feedback form, had one been available!

    Pick of the bunch

    from

    I have stayed in all of the four and five star hotels in Belfast and would recommend this as the best value

    The only drawback is its location which is a little way outside the centre

    It is clean, the staff are friendly and the food in the restaurant last week was excellent quality
