Our in-laws won a free nights’ accommodation (including breakfast) the Malone Lodge Hotel - how lucky is that?
When they decided to utilise the voucher they treated another family couple to the same package as it was their wedding anniversary and certainly worthy of celebrating.
My husband and I did not stay overnight, but viewed the rooms which were fine, though not outstandingly fabulous!
We did have a meal in the restaurant, the new “Knife & Fork Deli” and I'm delighted to report it was very enjoyable; excellent service and lovely ambience. Unfortunately there didn't seem to be many around for a Friday night - the bar had only 3/4 clients, and the restaurant another table of 4 and 2. There was however a large party to swell the numbers and they arrived about halfway through our meal - all gentlemen (very well behaved) - possibly 16 or so in number? But I’ll tell you more about that in a restaurant review!
There’s little doubt our friends weren’t allocated a room in the new executive wing of bedrooms, and they certainly weren’t in the Presidential suite – even though they would have tried given the opportunity! But, don’t get me wrong – not one of the party of four staying over had cause for complaint – they were very comfortable and informed us that breakfast was good.... they slept well too, so everything was fair enough!
It was rather a shame though to find a large skip just outside the front door on the pavement when we arrived so needless to say 1st impressions weren’t all that good.
The foyer and lounge area (just inside the front door) is indeed “spacious and luxurious” as stated on the web and the situation of the hotel is also described “to a T”; within easy reach of Belfast city centre (possibly 30 minutes walk / short walk followed by a bus ride or via taxi; yet within minutes of the main routes out of the city.
It’s not far to the Lisburn Road either which offers a plethora of shopping opportunities and eating establishments (3/4 minutes), and turning left (in the opposite direction) upon leaving the front door you can easily walk to view the beautiful Queens University building other, the Ulster Museum and Botanic Gardens .
The Hotel is located in a residential area though, so don’t be expecting roaming gardens or sitting to relax whilst watching the world go by! Sometimes it can be quite difficult to get a parking space close by too.
