Fodor's Expert Review Jurys Inn Belfast

Fisherwick Pl., at Great Victoria St., Belfast, Co. Down, BT2 7AP, Northern Ireland

Step inside this city-center hotel and you will feel the refreshing glow of a place that has been given a £9 million makeover and upped its game. The bar and restaurant have benefited from a crisp new look, while the reception has introduced self-check-in kiosks to help speed up the process at busy times. But it's the 80-bedroom extension that steals the show, where pebble-gray decor and burnt-orange furnishings set the scene. Most coveted are the spacious executive rooms, which along with the superior rooms, are stylishly dressed with king-size beds, a/c, walk-in showers, individual toiletries, and free soft drinks. Each new room is also decorated with a large wallpaper mural showing local landmarks. The Kitchen menu is perfectly adequate for dinner (rather than the more formal restaurant) and showcases burgers, chicken, artisanal pizzas, and a range of healthy options including Greek, Caesar, or farmhouse salads at an average price of £17. But if you wish to venture out, there is a vast choice of eateries on your doorstep and attractions such as the Grand Opera House one block away.
