Reviewed 16 August 2013

Stayed here for two nights, mid week.
Excellent service from friendly, helpful staff (had an incident with a shower leaking from the room above - it was all sorted out within 1 hour). Bed was the most comfortable ever - wanted to take it home. Rooms very spacious. Location was good: approx. 5 minutes walk into the city centre & numerous restaurants within walking distance. Food was 5 star quality: best food we had in Belfast. DJ in the ground floor bar 10pm - 11pm and then live band until 1am. Even though our room was on the 2nd floor, we were not disturbed by the entertainment (could barely hear the band). Only one slight problem: there wasn't a net curtain on the window, only heavy curtain - we were overlooked by apartment block on a very hot day!

We stayed in Benedicts in July/August 2013. On the up side: the bed was deliciously comfortable, more comfortable than our bed at home, as were the pillows. Best place we slept out many hotels & b&bs. On the down side: the housekeeping was Not Good. There was a thick layer of dust on the back on the bed and in the corners of the bathoom (this in one of the so-called 'executive suites'). There was No Air in the room: the windows opened about 3 inches wide and No more. We had to ask for a fan, but even with the fan, the air was limited. The theory behind the windows appeared to be Keep Air Out of the Room. Irish hoteliers don't realize that it gets HOT in Ireland and the rooms get unbearably stuffy.

The breakfast/eating area is the ugliest I've ever seen (of about 30-40 hotels). There, too, air is lacking. At meals and at the front reception desk and generally, the staff was not unpleasant but not excessively helpful. They tended to give incomplete or inaccurate answers to questions, not out of unkindness but out of ignorance or lack of training.

Nevertheless, Benedicts was better than other hotels I've stayed at in Belfast. But I would never stay there again in the summer, because the pervasive airlessness was unpleasant.

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent location. Food and drink orders were collected quickly and regularly and all food brought to the table in record time considering there were 16 people at our table. Good value for money and great quality!

We stayed at this hotel for one night and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were really warm and friendly, the food was lovely and very reasonably priced, the room was spacious, nicely decorated and very clean with lovely comfortable beds. We loved the bar area which had a great atmosphere and we came back late at night for fantastic music from a band called "The Untouchables". We loved the atmosphere and everyone was so friendly - we could not believe it was so busy on a Monday night! this was our first time in Belfast and we loved it and want to come back again very soon! By the way there is a special offer on at the hotel at the moment where you buy a bottle of champagne and get one night's b & b free!!

Room Tip: We had an executive room which was light and spacious. Lovely bathroom with spa bath.

Perfectly situated, nice executive rooms, very friendly service, but too noisy with all the pubs and bars around and in-house, maybe also because of the International Fire-brigade Games! But comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights and i would highly recommend this hotel to everyone. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome (the complimentary drinks voucher went down a treat). Our room was spacious with a lovely bathroom and the bed was amazing which meant a great nights sleep! Our room was quite warm because of the extremely warm weather outside, when asking at reception about getting the room cooled down the sent up a big fan which was a great help. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly but professional; nothing was ever a problem. The food was very nice and the beat the clock was a nice feature too! The hotel itself is not too far from the shopping centers which I liked. We loved our stay at the hotel and hope to be back soon! Thanks to all at Benedicts Hotel.

Benedicts is quite unique among Belfast hotels in that they offer all the comfort of the high profile hotels yet come across as a local guest house whose staff always remember you and make you feel at home. You even get a voucher for a complimentary drink in the bar (well, bar is an understatement, it's a classy joint and very friendly as the night goes on with superb live music every night - a great place to be and deserves a review of it's own). The restaurant is extemely atmospheric and the food is great. Breakfast is always a pleasure too. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and wifi is uncomplicated. It really has a feel to it that the big multiples can't ever match. It's good and central too with many decent eateries nearby if you don't fancy eating in house. The only downside is the lack of parking but the 200 metre hike to the car park is a small price to pay (I had to write something negative or else the review would have looked as though it was written by the owner!).
