We have just got back today from an overnight stay in this hotel and, if you are contemplating staying anywhere for a break in Belfast then STOP because you have found the place! Yes, that's right, The Premier Inn in the Titanic Quarter of Belfast is probably the nicest, friendliest hotel we have stayed in anywhere in the world. It is definitely the best place to stay if you intend visiting the Titanic Experience (really good). We were a little apprehensive about going to Belfast for the first time and had some preconceived ideas about what to expect. We also read a review on this site about the staff being abrupt. All l can say is that who ever wrote that review was either staying at a different hotel or came into contact with different staff to the ones that gave us such a great welcome and wonderful service over the past 36 hours. We arrived at 8.20 yesterday morning and asked If the hotel would store our luggage until we could come back at the agreed check in time of 2pm. The girl at Reception could not have been more helpful. She told us that one of our two rooms was free and that we could check in immediately, she apologised that the other room was not yet available despite us being 6 hours early. After welcoming us to Belfast for the first time she took us through the check in giving us valuable information about the offers connected to the hotel and we were then given access to one of our rooms which was immaculately clean. We decided to go for breakfast and went down to the thyme restaurant. The same Receptionist handed us over to a member of the restaurant staff who also was helpful and full of handy tips about the city. The breakfast was outstanding and great value with all you can eat for eight twenty five. The real value was that with each paying adult a child up to sixteen years of age can eat free! We had one 15year old who ate more than the other four of us put together, for free. If you are a family with two kids under 16 this has to be the best value in the city. The breakfast was as good as some l have had in 4 or 5 star hotels with the exception of the fried eggs who's yolks were too undercooked for my taste. We did not get to try the restaurant for their other meals but the menu looked to be more than adequate. Not fine dining but you can get a steak and vegetarian options all at a reasonable price. The bar serves drinks at a very reasonable price and l would challenge you to get as good a pint of Guinness in a capital city anywhere in the world for less than three fifty. The staff, without exception, were kind, courteous, helpful and all had a great sense of humour. The hotel is only five minutes walk along a newly developed riverside to the Titanic Experience and right next to the Odyssey Centre which has top acts appearing throughout the year and a host of bars and restaurants similar to Newcastle upon Tyne's The Gate Complex. Belfast itself was an absolute revelation. It is a small, lively and, in places surprisingly beautiful city with great shops. It has its own cultural identity, which one would expect, but the most moving art for me was that of the murals in the Shankhill Row and Falls Road areas. Some of the 'Peace' wall messages are truly profound and moving.
What impressed me so much was the optimistic outlook and sense of humour of the people of Belfast. Everyone we met both in and outside of the hotel were genuinely welcoming and had a sincere interest in us getting the most out of our time in their city. We have travelled all over the world, USA, Australia, Spain, France, Scotland, Italy, Greece, Bangkok, Finland, Portugal, Canaries, Dubai and the Republic of Ireland. The nicest people l have ever met were in Belfast. Welcoming, helpful and very very funny. Special mention to Neil, our taxi driver from the airport, who started our mini break with great advice and finished it with thanks and laughter. Do the bus tour, have a pint in Kellys Cellars and remember that, as a tourist, you are in the second safest city in the world (but who's going to go to Tokyo for a short weekend?) See you soon xxx
