Restful Nights at the Stormont Hotel
When you are away on business, the one thing you need is a comfortable base from which to operate. The Stormont Hotel, situated adjacent to Stormont Castle and Parliament Buildings, offers all you need in that sense. The hotel of choice for many news reporters, journalists, politicians and VIP’s. But it’s not all about work here either. Plenty on offer for the guest looking for a bit of pleasure in life too. Very close to Belfast city and the convenient City Airport. Location wise, an excellent base for visiting the region of County Down and city sights.
Comfort wise – as part of the Hasting’s group, it promises a high level of luxury for all its guests. Sir William Hastings bought a ten bedroom period home in 1966 and created this contemporary hotel. The Stormont keeps the ethos of luxury in mind.
Its 110 bedrooms offer high levels of comfort, rich fabrics, modern interior design, satellite tv and tea and coffee facilities, trademark feather soft beds and duvets, and stylish ensuite bathrooms complete with power showers, toiletries, robes, slippers and the like. Some rooms have great views of Stormont Castle and gardens. If you fancy moving up a notch on the ladder of luxury – the Titanic Suite boasts its own big bedroom and a sitting area with plenty of space for room service dining if you feel like it. Breakfast is the famous Hastings hot and cold buffet of local produce, which includes natural yogurts and house fruit compotes, Porridge with Bushmills and Honey, and all the ingredients for The Full Irish with potato and soda farls of the region.
Dining at The Stormont definitely means a trip to La Scala Bistro. A sassy light filled space serving lunch and dinner daily, open to residents and the public, with separate entrance. Being close to such important politic buildings and city, The Stormont has first class conference and business facilities. Fifteen conference rooms and suites and purpose built Confex Centre equipped with ten private meeting rooms. A specialist team-builder is also available. The Grand Ballroom can house 360 people for corporate events, black tie dinners and weddings and 600 for stand up cocktail parties. The Stormont Ballroom seats 300. Dunmisk and Barnett Suites offer a more cosy space for smaller parties.
