“Tiny rooms, filthy hallway carpet, wifi nightmare”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Having to "sign in" every day with a complete interrogation and voucher code to be able to reach the internet - each day - is a huge pain. Narrow hallways to reach our room, which was very small, hardly any room to put suitcases. The plug for the computer was in an awkward place. They DO have an obvious hairdryer hanging on the wall in the bedroom, and a trouser press. A trouser press? Really?

Hotel needs a Major overhaul.

I recently arranged a formal for all of the biological sciences students at Queen's university and the night was a huge success. The wellington offers an exorbitant package at a very affordable price. The staff were also a huge help in the process of arranging the formal as well as on the night. I would highly recommend anyone looking to arrange a formal for any reason to consider the wellington, it was an incredible night and I can't thank the staff enough for their assistance in making it so.

stayed one night May bank holiday week-end for family get together. Must thank Malachy (manager) for looking after us. Very pleasant staff, quick booking in process, happy with room (suite ). Bed very comfortable and facilities in the room good.
Hotel bar area very spacious and again staff very efficient. Had bar food which was of good standard.
Location within walking distance of city centre. Would stay here again but would agree with other reviews that hotel needs refreshing .

I booked this hotel through Trivago, after checking it online. The pictures on the website of the bedrooms were very impressive. I booked a double room and was greeted and dealt with promptly by the reception staff.
The corridor leading to the room was narrow and dull, the decor tired. On entering the bedroom, I was immediately disappointed, the carpet had debris on it and the desk had crumbs on it.
The bedroom furniture was sparse however the bedding was clean upon inspection. I decided to have a shower freshen up, but to my disappointment the shower produced nothing more than a trickle that ran down the shower hose and it was cold. I was forced to kneel in the bath and was myself from the bath taps. In addition the bath handle was hanging off.
I contacted reception who sent a manager and eventually a handy man to fix the shower. To be fair, they responded quickly.
There appeared to be some building work going on in the hotel, as during the afternoon, there was continuous banging from another floor with a hammer or something.
This hammering started again the following morning shortly after 09:00. I had only just finished a week of night shifts and was looking forward to much needed lie in. I gave up that idea and left the hotel.
I travel a lot with my job, staying in many hotels throughout the UK and don't think I have ever been so disappointed with the standard of a hotel. The bedrooms are not reflective of the website pictures. I emailed the hotel immediately to tell them of my experience but to this day I have had no response.
That's a shame because the only thing that was good about the hotel was the staff, they weren't outstanding but were courteous and polite.
The Wellington Park Hotel..... I would have preferred a night at Norman Bates motel :0(

Room Tip: If you want a decent hotel don't book this one

Definitely not 4star standard. My boyfriend had book a suite as this was our engagement. 1st room we were offered, is not what I would class as a suite. It had a double bed! My boyfriend went to reception who changed our room which was more acceptable with a queen size bed, not the most confortable but acceptable. The room was extremely warm and the window only opened a small crack to deter smokers but you could see from the burn marks around the pvc, it didnt. We didnt have dinner here as we had already a table booked elsewhere. We did have breakfast, buffet style, usual fruits cereals and hot food, nothing special as the potato & soda bread were left in hot plates to go soggy, bacon over cooked and had dried out in the hot plates.
This definitely wasnt to 4 star standard, ive stayed in better 2 star places but thats my opinion!

Two night stay here. Located in a nice part of the city close to the botanic gardens, so great for an evening stroll. Choice of several and varied places to eat nearby too. The accommodation was comfortable albeit a bit on the tired side decoration wise. What impressed me most was the friendliness of the place and the willingness of the staff to be of service in a natural, pleasant way. Not a fixed-grinned corporate mission statement in sight. I happened to have booked on the same night that a party of 60 hyper-active school children were staying over, and the night staff were more than accommodating in seeing that I was not disturbed. Thank you!

Room Tip: Go for a suite if you fancy something different - split level with a bedroom on top with its own bal...
