Set in a Victorian townhouse in the leafy Queen's University Quarter of South Belfast, this 4-star hotel is metres from the shops and cafés of bustling Lisburn Road. The Malone Lodge has been a family-owned operation for over 20 years. A refurbishment in 2013 left the hotel looking as good as new, so much so that it won the Northern Ireland Tourism Award for Commended Hotel of the Year in 2014.
The hotel is less than a mile from both City Hospital and Botanic train stations, and is within walking distance from major cultural spots such as the Ulster Museum, which features an impressive collection of art, history and natural-science treasures from around the world.
The hotel offers a range of dining options, with meals included with your room rate if preferred. Light snacks and refreshments are served throughout the day in the elegant Malone Lodge Lobby. With its leather armchairs and marble floors, Macklin's Bar provides a relaxing spot for an evening drink. The Knife and Fork Grill and Deli restaurant, specialising in local cuisine made with seasonal ingredients, is adjacent to the hotel. Classic mains include rib-eye steak and roasted seabass. A full Irish or continental breakfast is served here, too.
Most of the modern rooms are spacious, and all feature flat-screen TVs with cable, free Wi-Fi, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Suites and family rooms offer more space, but for a more independent stay, choose the self-catering 1- to 3-bedroom apartments. These are a short walk from the main hotel building, and come with fully equipped kitchens (with microwaves, washer/dryers, fridge/freezers and dishwashers). All rates include free parking.
