Inside the Chambers
Sumptuous comfort and quality linens, en suite ‘rainforest’ shower room and many have standalone Victorian-style baths. All have hand-made, individually-wrapped, locally-manufactured, animal-free toiletries by Field Day Scents, paying tribute to our native flora, with a crisp, fresh smell to leave you relaxed. Each room is suffused with a bygone elegance, offering a stylish, edgy yet raffish aesthetic and with many exquisite original features. All are named after creative legends with links to Belfast.
CS Lewis Suite
In the Bronte room, consider how Patrick Bronte’s life took him from Tullylish in Co Down to those windswept Yorkshire moors which inspired Charlotte, Emily and Anne to literary immortality. Or in the Ruby Murray room, ponder how a young girl from the Village area of the city came to have five hit singles in the UK charts AT THE ONE TIME.
While Melanie offers no guarantee that the wardrobe in the CS Lewis room will lead to Narnia, relax and let your mind soak in the ambience of the city which produced the writer of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
Twin Lavery Room
Dean Jonathan Swift served in the city, and on a clear day you can just make out the resting giant shape of Cave Hill which is said to have inspired his timeless Gulliver’s Travels.
In the Anthony Trollope room, try to figure out how the prodigious writer found the time to invent the postbox while stationed in the city, or think about how the city fed into classic album Astral Weeks while resting in the Van Morrison room.
