So we fancied a night out in Belfast. Good food and good company was the order of the evening with a cheeky stay over sown in for good measure. Dukes at Queens had recently been renovated so it seemed as good a choice as any. Or so we thought. It turned out to be a fantastic couple of days. Dukes at Queens is situated at the junction of Botanic Avenue and University Street in Belfast. With free on street parking just outside the hotel or a two minute walk from the Botanic Avenue train station, Dukes is easily accessible. This area of Belfast is cram packed with things to do and a hub for good diverse food. A real must go area of Belfast. And with their location right at the start of the avenue, Dukes at Queens is the best place to stay in this zone. I would say at their prices, the best place to stay in Belfast. We stayed in a standard double which is was a steal for the comfort and space we got. The room had the best bed in the world, it was like climbing into a huge marshmallow. It was so comfortable that I slept through the entire night. I never sleep through any night, not even in my own bed. I would check in at Dukes any day just to get that much out of a sleep. Dukes is a luxurious boutique style hotel. The rooms are plush with an extensive en-suite providing both a large bath and rain shower. Remember this is a standard room. With in room coffee and tea facilities the room also had a great view of Botanic Avenue and Queens. The staff were exceptional. Everyone we spoke with was courteous and helpful, in fact they couldn't do enough. Everything we experienced at the hotel was 'top notch'. I have stayed in some of Belfast's high end hotels and the experience left me wanting. Not so at Dukes. The restaurant continued the luxurious décor. Beautifully lavish. The ceilings are marvellously panelled, gilded and painted. Seating is on plush velvet and leather upholstery. No expense has been spared. The conversation starter for us was the 'whose who' portraits around the walls. These where of historical medical giants. Maire Currie and Alexander Fleming to name a few. But it was good craic to try and guess who they where and what they had done or invented. The live music the décor and everything about the restaurant was fantastic. But did the food live up to the scene that had been set. In short, yes. Fresh ingredients and perfection in preparation meant our meal was of the highest calibre. Jawbox cured mackerel with pickled cucumber salsa to start. What a combination. The mackerel was full off flavour with just the touch of gin left on the plate and the salsa was so refreshing. This was seriously good cooking. Miriam had the spiced crispy squid. This was so good, we ended up fighting over the last bit. It was exactly what we thought The spicing was warm and fully flavoured and paired well with the squid. The shin of beef pie was nearly as comforting as the bed a slept in. Braised shin beef with baby silver onions and carrots and the 'flakiest' pastry topping. Served with buttered greens and fluffy mash it was dream, indulgent and so deeply satisfying. Great work chef. Miriam's battered haddock and pea puree and tipple cooked chips was definitely not normal. Crisp thin batter and the fluffy white haddock was a thing of wonder. Triple cooked chips are good at the best of times when done right but these where the benchmark. To finish I had the coconut panna cotta with lime sorbet and strawberry jus. The jus was presented in a syringe in keeping with the medical theme, brilliant and a great way to finish a great meal. Miriam had freshly cooked churros with hazelnut chocolate dip. I could have ordered this dish three times in a row. If you are thinking of staying over in Belfast, seeing a show or just taking in some of the sights, then Dukes at Queens is where you need to check in. Dukes renovation is refreshing. Their attention to the guest, the great atmosphere and environment with great on-site dining, makes this a great contender for your Belfast stay.

Stayed at hotel last night when wee in Belfast to see a show at The Opera House. Check in and out was very fast. Room was ready for us and was very spacious. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The hotel is a short walk into the city centre. Breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked to order. All staff were warm and friendly. A special mention to Sian on reception who even provided us with a large umbrella, we promised we would return it when rain had stopped. Would definitely stay again.
