Fodor's Expert Review Benedict's of Belfast

7–21 Bradbury Pl., Belfast, Co. Down, BT7 1RQ, Northern Ireland

Friendly, lively, and convenient, Benedict's looms large on Bradbury Place in the heart of the action beside the bright lights of Shaftesbury Square. Guest rooms on the second floor have wooden floors and soft pastel decor; the simple but comfortable carpeted rooms on the third floor are darker. Beds are fitted out with Egyptian-cotton sheets, feather-topped mattresses, and plush goose-down duvets. If you don't feel like straying too far from your home base for some nightlife, Benedict's has a buzzing bar and restaurant serving fine Continental food. The "beat the clock" promotion is a good deal: before 7 pm all main-course prices are £7.
