We have just returned from a lovely weekend in Belfast with Friends, and to visit close family who live there. They recommended Ten Square to us and we were not dissappointed. After checking with the hotel that we were getting the best rate I booked on-line and at £89 per night we were more than satisfied.
We took an early morning flight from London and arrived at the hotel at just after 9.30am, the friendly young lady on reception took our luggage to store until the room was ready, she then gave us loads of advice on what to do for the rest of the day and gave us city guides so we could get our bearings.
The hotel is directly behind City Hall and we spent the morning wandering around nearby and going for a ride on the Belfast Eye. We had Guinness & Irish stew for Lunch in The Crown (a wonderful olde pub). Again the staff here were so helpful and booked us a "Black Cab Tour" which picked us up from right outside. You MUST do this tour it was so interesting and informative (our driver Mick, was again very friendly).
He dropped us back to the hotel and we were show to our rooms (307 & 305), both really lovely rooms. We had booked just the standard rooms, but were extremely surprised by the size and little extras which were included. Massive beds, large vase of fresh lillies, large towels, dressing gowns,slippers, tes & coffee making, flat screen TV. we had chocolates on the pillows and the turn down service! (yes there is a little lip on the edge of the bed & I too cracked my knee once, but hey, I we had drunk 3 bottles of champagne that night).
The bar area is trendy and very atmospheric (dark and moody), and was very lively on Saturday evening, the restaurant is similarly decorated and the food was very good. (I had a fillet steak which was cooked to perfection!).
Saturday morning our men went off to play golf, and my girl friend and I ordered Breakfast in the room for a lazy girly morning!
sunday morning we ate breakfast in the restaurant (a little late, so they had run short of a few things), full Ulster was delicious (I'm told) and my Smoked Salmon and scrambled egg was to die for!.
Reception area and corridors are a little dark and they have candles and fires to add to the modern contemporary, and relaxing mood.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will be back without a doubt. I only wish I could afford to stay in on of the mini suites for a romantic weekend the next time. (I will add photos soon)
