Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Adie69 Good experience
This was my second time staying at the holiday inn express in Belfast. Staff were friendly, room very clean and modern, breakfast good and a great location close to Queens University. Price was very good value and hotel has a private and secure car park. Overall a good experience again. Thank you!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SM Brum Great service, but...
The room, the main focus of anyone's stay in a hotel, was a little surprising. We thought we had booked a double room, but 'standard' obviously meant twin. Whilst my wife found her bed perfectly comfortable, I was less happy with mine. Yet, despite being a room for two, there was only towel rail enough for one. The other oddity was the absence of drawer storage, a bit of a necessity for any stay longer than one day. There were a couple of maintenance issues, such as a broken shaver point in the bathroom. Whilst I can only commend the speed of the response once this was reported, the fix was a shaver plug to be used in the room, which wasn't ideal.
All that said, the room was very clean and in good order. We found the staff exceptionally helpful, and the choices for breakfast were better than expected.
The location of the hotel is perfect for Queens University, the Botanic Gardens and the plethora of restaurants and cafes around that area. It's a fair hoof to the city centre, but the Botanic train station is close by.
I would have included a picture of the pleasant view towards the city, but the review website's upload facility didn't seem to be working. Shame.
