Known locally as the Wellie Park, a moniker adopted by its nightclub, this Belfast institution is a grand survivor of the city's more turbulent times. Established in 1957 and family owned, the hotel has undergone a recent refurbishment and is both an excellent business venue and a party haven for the 20+. Look around the large foyer and adjoining dining areas and you'll find an impressive collection of Irish art. The Piper Bistro is named after local artist Raymond Piper whose drawings of local celebs adorn the walls. The bedrooms are stylishly sedate with floral bedcovers, handcrafted furniture and pristine bathrooms. A great Queen's Quarter location and plenty of free parking are added bonuses for Wellie guests.
