... and you lose some!
I have also indulged in probably a few too many tasty dinners and treats from some local places. Of course, I did the typical tourist thing and took photos of all the delicious meals :)
My favorite restaurant in Belfast so far is Made in Belfast. All their is sourced from Northern Ireland, and tastes amazing. The ...
As we were leaving Dublin and sailing up to Belfast, the Captain came over the tannoy system to tell us that there was a huge area of low pressure coming down from Iceland and this heralded a severe gale and force 10 winds. He therefore took the decision to get to Belfast and stay overnight to wait out the storm which meant our trip to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis was cancelled. It was a shame that we were to miss out the Scottish island as we ...
... hand is a different story! It appears that this trip granny has returned to her former baking glory and has been making all the things that Sam has told me about, jam tarts and rhubarb tarts are eaten by the Beattie men just as fast as they come out of the oven. Since I have been here granny has pulled 9 large round jam and rhubarb tarts out of her oven and in less than a week they have all been eaten. Pure gluttony! Today we ventured to Carrickfergus which is ...
... are so strong and it would be silly to move over to euros, but he still calls himself Irish. Northern Ireland will still be a part of Britain unless the whole of the country agrees to being the Republic of Ireland and this just does not look like it will happen any time soon. We were not involved in any of the demonstrations, the most we saw was about 50 policemen lining the streets with armour and guns getting ready for it, we were advised to stay in our hotel and to only leave ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Belfast City
OK, for the price
Travelodge is kind of like a Motel 6 in the U.S. It's a place to stay and not much else. It did the trick for my husband and me, but I really wish we would have asked for a room that didn't overlook the courtyard since there's a noisy bar down there that kept me up. Otherwise, the location was great and the room decent.
We stayed at the Belfast Central Travelodge over the weekend of August 12, 2006. We (wife, adult daughter and me) arrived at 1pm - two hours before check-in time but was warmly greeted at reception and given Room 708 immediately. This room is on the top floor overlooking the small Amelia Square. The room was large and clean and tidy but looking just a little tired. The management are aware of this as a refurbishment programme is under way.
Judging from other reviews, we were expecting an unpleasant 5 day stay, but we were wrong! Great location, close to city central, the train and bus station, Queen's University, many restaurants. Perhaps it is noisy at night--just request a room that does not face the plaza below and sleep undisturbed. We were out late, and never felt frightened. We would stay there again.

I stayed in the travel lodge for ine night. I booked a twin room online but on arrival i was informed that our booking had been changed to a double room due to a lack of availability. This change was made without my consent.
I really wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone, sorry, but I'm being honest!
I went to belfast for a weekend and stayed in this hotel for 2nights. The rooms are on the small side but clean and tidy enough. Staff were helpful and friendly. The location of this hotel was the best part being right next to the bus and train station and near all the pubs and clubs and within walking distance for most other things in belfast. Would go back.
We stayed one night on 29th December 2004. We were able to check in early which was very useful. We got a lovely room on the 7th floor with everything you could need, plus is was very clean and tidy. We also purchased the breakfast which was excellent value for money. Central location and very close to the bus depot for return to the airport. One of the better Travelodges we have stayed in.
Close to town center and train station
Stayed seven night at the travel lodge in downtown belfast . Rooms small but ok. The location is close to the town center and shopping. The famous crown pub and robinsons is near. The victoria st train station is only a block away and it will take you to the central station and from there you can get a train to anywhere. There is some noise from the pubs at night ,but is acceptable.
Central at least
My room wasn't bad - big bed, sofa, TV, desk, tea and coffee making facilities. My colleague's room was awful though for the same price - tiny cramped room with loads of stains and stickers on the mirror.
Staff were friendly enough but a bit young and clueless. There was a bit of confusion over whether or not our company had prepaid and when it transpired that they hadn't they seemed very stressed about us paying as soon as possible as if we were about to run of with the furniture in our suits and laptops. Our floor (4th) absolutely reeked of paint and a couple of the lights didn't work.
Location is very central but immediate area seemed slightly dodgy. Okay, but I wouldn't return.
What can be said about the Travelodge in Belfast thats positive, well location, its central so no taxis required to get to and from the bars and many clubs in Belfast City centre, as the hotel chain admits, they dont splash out on luxury bedrooms just a comfy bed and shower, the rooms are basic, shower, sometimes with a bath, colour tv, tea and coffee facilities. The staff are usually friendly but sometimes they dont seem to be able to cope when more than 4 people arrive to check in. they are pretty strict on the 3pm check in time so dont arrive early but you can leave your bags, the bar in the hotel is average but be warned there is a hostel for the homless next door and its not recommended to walk outside at night, if you get a bargain and I have, as cheap as £5 per room you cant complain but prices do go upto £65 room which would make me look elsewhere.
