Bit of a mix up when we arrived.....15 lads on a stag dooo, quickly sorted by the excellent reception staff who then gave us vouchers off for drinks and breakfast, which turned out to be very useful.

Rooms are well decorated excellent bathrooms, nothing more that i can say really.

Great hotel, really helpful and friendly staff and tip the barman/maid they are stars.

Belfast is a great city absolutely loved me long weekend there cannot wait to go back.

Clean and fresh new hotel in the transforming Cathedral area of Belfast. Location good, and whilst there are some run down streets on the doorstep these can be avoided and there's good restaurants and bars close by.

On the whole a good stay, would think carefully whether I would revisit.

First the positives:
- Reception friendly, almost all staff through the hotel friendly
- Rooms well designed, feel more spacious than they are, good shower and comfy bed.

And the negatives:
- Rooms have no air con, odd for a new hotel overlooking a dual carriageway, windows open a few inches only
- Nearby nightclub very loud till about 3.30am, every night. You have a choice - close window and sweat, open and don't sleep. Hotel has sun on all day so rooms hot.

Niggles:
- No transparency of pricing - fluid room prices, no bar price list, no indication of breakfast cost etc...
- Breakfast fair. Holiday Inn express type continental, backed up by cooked if you order. Good range - but ingredients are at the cheaper end - think "value brand" rather than "finest". Would put you off evening meal.

Sounds more negatives that positive - but if you are going to Belfast and intend to party - this will be a great bolt hole just a bit away from the main nightlife. If going to work, visit sights - make sure you get a back /side room and come in winter.

Dear ManxQueenies,

Thank you for your comments and feedback on your stay in Ramada Encore Belfast City Centre. I appreciate the time it takes to supply constructive feedback on your stay.

I'm disappointed that you felt the quality of breakfast did not meet your expectations during your visit. We take pride in the quality of the food served in our restaurant - we source only the best local produce and our chefs liase closely with our suppliers to ensure the quality matches our expectations.

Our room tarif pricing is indeed fluid and we are keen to negotiate the best value rate for each and every guest who stay with us. Our bar prices are available in the menus on each table and are comparative to the public bars in the Cathedral Quarter.

Ramada Encore Belfast City Centre is located in the heart of the fast developing Cathedral Quarter - the centre of culture, arts and nightlife in Belfast and the area is a vibrant and exciting place to be.

I thank you once again for your comments and I hope I can welcome you back to Ramada Encore Belfast City Centre in the not too distant future.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Topping
General Manager

Stayed at the ramada encore for one night last weekend. The hotel is very clean, the staff are lovely and the decor is very modern and bright. The parking next door is free and the room rate was great. The bedroom is very basic but functional and clean. Loved the wet room style shower...loads of room. Very close to everything in Belfast and we stayed in an odd numbered room and heard no noise all night.

Stayed at the Ramada Encore last weekend..... Very good value, clean spacous rooms and very friendly staff. Major advantage is that they have car parking which some of the other city hotels do not have.I would have no hesitation staying here again

We chose this Ramada based on its location to the City Center. The hotel opened in April of this year, so everything is fresh & new. The lobby area, bar & restaurant are all on the ground floor and have a very modern look and feels very upbeat. We stayed on the 5th floor in the room right above the Encore sign that has all of the curved windows. Needless to say we had a great view. The room had a wood laminate floor which was very attractive. Bed was comfortable and lighting was good. Bathroom had a shower with glass partitions. Wifi was not available in the room, but was free in the lobby area. Breakfast in the morning was very good. It was continental style but you could order an Irish breakfast at no additional cost. Service from both the front desk & restaurant staff was very good. Everyone was smiling and responsive. The front desk recommended Nick's Warehouse for dinner which was excellent. They also sold us tickets for the 90-minute bus tour which picked us up directly in front of the hotel. Free parking was available next door in the parking garage. All in all a very good stay and a very good value.
