Found on checking bill, that an extra £100 had been taken off the bill to cover for smoking in the room, the resident refutes this allegation and having spoken to the duty manager Stephen they have refused me a refund. DONT STAY THERE PLEASE.

Due to many reviews such as yours I decided not to respond on TripAdvisor for a number of years however I do have responses for each review prepared. Angela Pownhall smoked in a non-smoking bedroom, she admitted doing so to the head housekeeper and the duty manager, and photographs were taken as evidence. She was also aware of the smoking charge and that it is illegal to smoke in a smoke-free area. Your threats as others before you, to negatively review our business if we do not refund are dishonest and unjust. Be aware that, in addition to our fair decommissioning and cleaning charge, the hotel under this Legislation may inform the Local Council who may take further legal action and impose greater fines against individuals who breach these Laws.

does the hotel have a dog policy ?
Sorry don't know. Give them a call. I have the same problem but only use the restaurant for meals and don't bring my dog as I live a short distance away

Does anybody know how far away this hotel is to Arneau Park?
Hi Joshua! Never heard of Arneau park! There is an Ormeau park in. Belfast if that helps. It is about 12 miles away. That's pronounced Ormo!! Kind regards. Hubert

Yes, but I think it costs a little more ,however there is a heated outdoor covered smoking area which is comfortable to use and kept very clean by staff. It is very close to the bar so handy to use.

Sorry, didn't mean fogs or frogs for that matter - fogs are dogs in case you hadn't guessed (oops)!

"If possible get a room at the front of hotel"
"choose a room at the back if you stop on a Saturday night"
"Room 226 is a triple above the area where beer is delivered, and rolling metal kegs is a noisy activity, especially early in the morning."
"Find another hotel if you wish to get any sleep on a Saturday night!!!!"
"Rooms at the back are quieter"
