Take a seaside boarding house, plonk it in the city, inject it with growth hormones and you've got the Citilodge. Not a surface, bedspread or wall space is bereft of chintz, stripes, paintings and large-scale murals. It's the city's biggest B&B and the location keeps converts coming back for more. Wifi in all rooms. Call for room rates.

We arrived at Citilodge on the way back from great digs in Donegal and felt downhearted by the atmosphere. The staff were friendly but the overall feel was shabby. Granted it was St Paddy's day and the streets were noisy with drunk students, but there was no onstreet parking available and I was forced to leave the car a couple of blocks away. The room was on the top floor and although there was a double bed and small ensuite, the room was basically a single room with one lamp beside the bed. Having slogged all the way up several staircases, there was hardly room to get the luggage through the door. The bedding was not as fresh as we would expect. There was a flat screen television though with no remote. Tea making facilities were on the bottom floor. The low point was when I took a shower and there was no hot water. I went down stairs and the chap said he would put the water heater on. Breakfast was "continental" with no cooked food on offer.

I agree completely with Stuart Mitchell. I live in this part of Ireland, and find it shameful that these kind of establishments are allowed to trade! It may be hard to believe, but this B&B used to be a great little place to stay, & the breakfast & hospitality of its owners were brilliant. When these particular owners sold it on, it went down hill rapidly! Its a gut wrenching place to stay, no exaggerating! Close this place down, its an embarrassment to our wonderful little city of Belfast!

We have just returned today from a wonderful 4 days touring the Giants Causeway coast and ending up in Belfast for 24 hours. We found Helga Lodge on your website before we left and pre-booked there for one night. The from the bus station we took a Taxi to Helga Lodge, and the Taxi Driver asked us if we were sure as it was disgusting and he had heard lots of horror stories, we said yes and on arriving there were groups of people outside smoking, we asked to see the room and it was disgusting, broken furniture, mould and mildew in the smelly bathroom, sticky surfaces, smelly bedlinnen and no towells. We said to the woman in reception that it was unacceptable and we didnt want it, and she just said that she would take our £60.00 anyway as she had our card number from pre-booking (is this the sort of money making policy you condone?). We ended up having to stay as they were taking the money anyway and we were on a budget, but all night there was slamming doors and lots of noise. We complained at the tourist welcome place in town and they said they had had lots of complaints but couldnt do anything about it as they didnt recommend nor condem anywhere. We stayed in some really lovely places up the coast, and this hovel really spoiled our visit, we feel you should not be listing this place until you inspect it unnanounced and see for yourself the state of the place. We didnt stay for breakfast as when we saw the state of the kitchen it was disgusting. Helga Lodge is not the norm for your wonderful country, and not a good advert, they should be removed from your website immediately. Other visitors should not experience this degrading place.
