I could not find anything in Belfast centre so looked further afield. So pleased I found this hotel. Its a 20 - 25 minute drive from Belfast city which is no big deal especially if you have a hire car. I use Holiday Inn Express quite a lot so knew exactly what I was going to get. Plenty of parking...

Lovely clean modern hotel room. A bit clinical but to be expected from a chain. Nice and clean not dated and everything worked. Reception bar area nice and relaxed. Breakfast quite good with good choice of items. Would stay here again without a doubt.

Stayed here for one night last weekend. The staff are very friendly and the room was warm, comfortable and very clean. Although the hotel is situated near a main road it did not affect us. It is very convenient for visiting the North coast. The breakfast was excellent, plenty of choice. Would definitely stay again.
