General Manager Suzi McIlhatton said this year would mark the beginning of a new era for the boutique hotel which has been in business since 1991 and is now in the hands of a new senior management team of herself and Operations Manager, Chris Kilpatrick.

“The owners recently disposed of a number of our apartments to focus on delivering a best-in-class hospitality experience,” she said.

“We have big plans to rejuvenate the whole business from top to bottom. We have been conscious for some time of the need to re-position our offering and update our brand.

“Our new offering will play very much to our proud Belfast heritage with excellent food, beverage and exemplary customer service as cornerstones.

“We believe our new brand will be perfectly suited to the new, confident Belfast.”
