I really like this place, have enjoyed lunch and dinner there recently. My one pet hate thought is where they charge extra for Mayo/ketchup!!! I think when you have a meal these should be a part of it!

The hotel is newly renovated but only the outside and the lobby which actually looks nice. The room we had was certainly dated. There is no air conditioning, therefore we had to keep the windows open. Sadly that would allow bugs to enter, which we had to kill whenever we returned from our day trips. The wifi internet did not... More

We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay here in The Ivanhoe. In all honesty we have never needed air conditioning in Northern Ireland where the temperature is usually low and we have never advertised that we do offer air conditioning. The windows have net curtains which should keep out any bugs. There certainly was a... More

We stayed here June 20th for the weekend. Staff and other guests were so friendly. Made our stay even better. Only gripe I had with Belfast in general was it was way too expensive for drinks only did bottles of pop and not draft pop in all pubs.

Just called in to Bistro around 3.45pm and received a friendly welcome and very quick service. We both had a lovely meal and the desserts were to die for! Although they are quite pricey for a 3 star hotel. Another negative was the price of the drink. In future I would opt for a carafe of water.

Great night. 4th July barbecue, great food and music. Diff worth a visit. Excellent staff, couldn't be more helpful. The bar and waiting staff are on a par with any top hotel in the city centre. The improved decor/restyling have made the Ivanhoe one of the top hotels in Belfast.

Obviously the recent renovations cost a lot of money and it seems that that money is now being recuperated in overpriced food prices. I note they charge £2.50 for a jug of diluted orange (80% of which is tap water!). Most four and five star proper hotels don't even stoop that low. Extra wheaten bread (because they only brought out... More

Had dinner In the bistro last weekend with my husband. He opted for the roast sirloin of beef, I had the hake with chorizo. Well if we were children this wouldn't have filled us, the roast beef must have been cut with a razor, 2 wafer thin slices, which were tasteless. My hake also tasteless was served with a little...

Myself and my partner stayed here for two nights. Hotel looks lovely from the outside. That's pretty much the highlight of our stay. We arrived and checked in. Service was good. We went up to the room. First of all the toilet didn't flush unless ferociously forced. There was a light outside our window which was on ALL night and... More
