I arrived for three nights after my over night sailing to Dublin and motorbike journey up to Belfast on the off chance of checking in early around mid day. Reception was very busy so I was asked to wait in the lounge and would be attended to. Due to rooms being prepared presumably due to being fully booked given my... More

Botanic Lodge should have been a safe choice for staying based on its size and location however immediately after arriving i regretted it! An old building, fair enough, this could actually be charming but no! it was dirty, undecorated, actually very dirty! with towels lying everywhere and a musty smell. The girl at the front desk was disgraceful, didn't care,... More

I have stayed in a few B and Bs in my time but this is one of the worst places I have ever stayed in ! It was fairly expensive for the room and we paid for an upgrade to an ensuite which was a glorified warderobe with a sliding door - very pleasant ! The walls were filthy, the... More

I stayed here in April of this year and I must say I wasnt expecting much for the price (£30 standard) however I was plesantly surprised. The staff were more than helpful with my queries, they went out of their way to make my stay a plesant one. Clean sheets, clean towels,old but cosy room, cooked breakfast and made feel... More

I would not recommend Botanic Lodge to anyone. The place is old, dirty and in a very poor condition. The girl that helped us seemed nice, but wasn't very interested. The room was tiny, all the closests were crooked, it smelled very stuffy and I had to walk a long way to the nearest toilet in the hallway. I did'nt... More

This is absolutely true, no need to embelish -We usually research where we stay but on this occasion went along with a recommendation from a local. We now know that was only because it was the closest cheap (at £45 a night) B&B to where we neeeded to be that night. It was certainly not worth half that amount. Five... More

Botanic Lodge is old and therefore there are evident maintenance problems and it is not spotlessly or sparkling clean. The room I stayed, an ensuite double room was small but the toilet was good. The shower had a good stream of hot and cold water. The staff is polite and friendly and the breakfast is average. The good thing about... More

Good, clean. Staff really nice. Some rooms noisy on Botanic Avenue, but good location has some bad points sometimes. Not many en suites, but I was happy enough to share the clean bathrooms. Much better than previous owners from 2006. Old, but nice. Lovely Breakfast.
