“Great place to stay, excellent value”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Myself, the girlfriend and her friend headed to belfast for a weekend and had botanic rest booked. Told our names to the owner at the start of our stay and that was it for the weekend, every time we passed through the weekend we were asked how we r gettin on? Wat we are gettin up etc etc. the staff were very friendly and helpful, great suggestions on where to eat/ drink/ things to do.

The rooms were great too. Very comfortable and clean and a brand new ensuite bathroom, big tv and tea making facilities.

Basically he next time I'm heading down there, the folks at botanic rest will be the first ones I will ring.

Keep up the good work!!

Stayed August 2013

Myself and a group of friends stayed here on Saturday. It was a great base for our girls night out - the locations is excellent, being close to all the major attractions and night life in Belfast. (The Empire is a 2 minute walk - always a good night out there).

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The owner, (think his name was Conal), greeted us and carried all our bags. Our ensuite rooms were really lovely - very modern and fresh. We also had free wifi. The cooked breakfast was delicious, highly recommended.

This place is more like a boutique hotel than a b&b, with a very personal service and good atmosphere. We will definitely be booking in here again!

We took a twin room for 3 night in August 2013. I can't praise enough this B&B!
The service is flawless, the rooms superclean and airy, the bathrooms/showers superclean too. The B&B is super central, 10 minuts walk from the city center, 5 minuts from the Botanic Gardens and the Queen University. We were extremely pleased. The staff was so helpful and friendly, always at our disposal.

Excellent stay in Belfast!

Place was ideal for what we wanted, very friendly staff,spotless room and great location for touring the city.Ten minute walk from the city centre and five minutes from some great bars and restaurants.We're a young couple and found the area great for semi lively bars and restaurants.Students are off, so maybe during school term area might be wilder. Still a great location very friendly staff.

I spent 2 nights in Belfast staying at the Botanic rest in August 2013.The room was spotlessly clean,and the management and staff went out of their way to make sure everything was good.The breakfast is included in the price and very tasty with plenty of options.The B/B is sited near plenty of amenities ,just a short bus ride to the city centre and very close to a rail station.I recommend this B/B and would stay again.Thanks Colin.

My partner and I struggled to find anywhere in belfast on thurs the 1st of August as we had not pre booked and the world games were on, we saw the botanic rest on trip advisor and went in to see if there was space, luckily for us there was a late check out and the man behind reception and the manager said they could quickly clean that room and give us that, as they were aware I was pregnat and we would really struggle to find anywhere. The price was fantastic and room was compact but modernised, this also included breakfast which was very well set up and a good variety on offer , also served by a female emloyee who was pleasant and friendly. Overall id recommend this b&b and will def be back if we are over staying in belfast again.

Hi collettestewart,
We were only too happy to be able to help. We couldn't see a pregnant woman struggling to find somewhere to stay in a packed out Belfast.
Maybe you will return someday to stay in our Family Room!!
Everyone at Botanic Rest wish you both all the best with birth of your new baby!!!!!!!

We stay at the the Botanic Rest in June, and we were very lucky to have found them. Super friendly, clean, and well located. Every single person was extremely helpful. Breakfast is included and is a broad menu, and very delicious!
