Our Review of Grand Central Hotel

The Grand Central Hotel is the new shining star of Belfast City. Located in the heart of Belfast on Bedford Street, this hotel dominates the city skyline, with its awe-inspiring height and beautiful contemporary design. The seventh hotel in the Hastings Hotels Collection, the Grand Central Hotel is Belfast history reborn as it perfectly represents all the glamour and grandeur of a top-class modern hotel while also paying homage to the vibrant history of the previous Grand Central Hotel founded in the 19th century that was an integral part of Belfast history.

Opulence and quality weaves its way through each and every aspect of the Grand Central Hotel including the dining offering which is as versatile and exciting as it comes. Visitors have a choice of three restaurants within the hotel which cater for all tastes and occasions. The Seahorse Bar & Restaurant, named for the city’s maritime history, is a showcase of beautiful contemporary design. Enjoy your meal in an expansive space with high ceilings and walled windows that take in the city’s sights. The restaurant ingeniously transforms from bright and relaxed daytime dining to the more intimate and dramatic atmosphere of evening dining. Enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the restaurant’s bar and choose from a range of creative cocktails or spirits and beers. You’ll be impressed with the hotel’s collection of both local and international suppliers.

Hastings Hotels have always championed and prioritised local food and this ethos is felt keenly in the Grand Central Hotel. Locally inspired menus reflect seasonal foods and feature the very best of regional meat, poultry, fish and seafood that is wonderfully presented and seasoned with an exciting array of ingredients. During the day, visitors can also enjoy a leisurely Afternoon Tea in the Seahorse Lounge. Sip on an indulgent glass of champagne as you savour delicate savoury creations and delightfully dainty homemade desserts!

You can also enjoy an intriguing Celestial Afternoon Tea during the day, which brings this popular food experience to a new level.
