The Titanic Hotel, Belfast is situated literally next door to Belfast’s signature attraction, the Titanic Museum, which makes it an ideal location for a short break. You can also purchase ‘Titanic Experience’ rates which include entry to the museum. Created out of the old Harland and Wolff buildings it is however more than simply a hotel as the entire place is suffused in the history of the ship designers and builders and, of course, the Titanic itself. Everywhere you look are information boards featuring the history of the firm, of the individuals who worked there and of the eponymous ship. If you are interested in the Titanic you can spend hours simply working your way though all this information. The nautical theme is continued across the corridors (rather too well as they are decidedly gloomy) and the rooms, (verging on the functional rather than the luxurious), but it is used to terrific effect in the two main communal areas, the Drawing Office Two, (a bar located in the old drawing office where the plans for Titanic were created) and the Wolff Grill, the main fine dining restaurant. Service is excellent and even under Covid restrictions was friendly and efficient. A special mention must be made for the food in the Wolff Grill. We enjoyed an exceptional meal one evening. The location was for us ideal although if you are looking for a scenic outlook this is not the place for you, situated as it is in the old docks. But it means you are right next door to the Titanic Museum, next door to a stop on the (excellent) Open Top Bus route, and on the edge of the modern waterfront development. It was an easy stroll along the riverside and past the marina into Belfast city centre. All in all this is an excellent choice for a Belfast city break, giving easy access to a fascinating city and comfortable surroundings in which to enjoy them.
