Located on a quiet, tree-lined street in an affluent neighborhood in South Belfast, Malone Lodge Hotel & Apartments provides easy access to local attractions. It’s also close to Queen’s University.
Families have plenty of room options at this hotel, including multi-bedroom apartments that feature a kitchenette. There is no pool or children’s program at this hotel, but families are within walking distance to the large botanic gardens where the kids can run and play outside and the Ulster Museum that displays Belfast’s artworks, history and science with lots of kid-friendly exhibits.
The onsite restaurant and lounge at the hotel offer breakfast, lunch and dinner and kids will love to enjoy a spot of tea with scones and finger sandwiches at an afternoon tea party served in the lobby.

Stayed three days in the Malone lodge Hotel in Belfast last week, this is my second visit to malone lodge, simply stunning, excellent staff and marvellous Food.
They serve a Breakfast which is absolutely Fantastic, the menu has quite a big
Variety, and is cooked to order which I think is the sign of a great Hotel.
The Hotel was full for the days we were there and we were lucky to get upgraded to one of the suites across the road. It’s an easy Hotel to use as a base to explore the city and easy driving to the major attractions. We will certainly be back in the Malone again....some of the best staff I have come across in my travels are in the Malone.
While there is no pool or children's program at this hotel, families are within walking distance to the Ulster Museum and the large Botanic Gardens of Belfast, and a short drive from the Belfast Zoo and Titanic Museum.

Planning & Tips
All About the Extras
Complimentary Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel and apartments.
Street parking is available on the mostly residential street and a small parking lot can also be found behind the hotel.
International Electrical Outlets
The hotel is happy to provide international adaptors for the electrical outlets at no cost.
The currency in Belfast, located in Northern Ireland (which is part of the United Kingdom), is Great Britain's Pound. The hotel does not offer foreign exchange services, however, post offices throughout Northern Ireland will exchange currency with no fee. There is a post office within walking distance to Malone Lodge. There are also ATMs and banks located nearby. The hotel will not accept the Euro.
The Best Time to Visit
The summer months, specifically June through August, are the busiest times for families to visit. Northern Ireland's weather is often unpredictable, with sun, clouds and rain sometimes in the same day, but temperatures often range from the high 50s to the low 70s in the summer months.
Located in Northern Ireland, this hotel is about 30 minutes from the Belfast International Airport and about 90 minutes from Dublin International Airport.
Malone Lodge Hotel is situated near the Queen's University campus in a more affluent neighborhood of Belfast. The tree-lined streets and sidewalks make it comfortable for families to walk to nearby restaurants, museums and parks. Belfast is a bustling city so expect traffic and congestion a few blocks away from the hotel. If families have plans to explore more of Belfast, a rental car or taxi is needed.
Adults will love to grab a pint at Macklin's Bar and enjoy it in the lounge or outside on the terrace on a warm summer day.
