Owner and Belfast local, Melanie Harrison, has woven past and present throughout the hotel into an individual celebration of her city like no other. Each of the 17 rooms is named after creatives with links to Belfast, such as Jonathon Swift, CS Lewis, Percy French and Samuel Beckett.
The curated design of each chamber pays homage to their namesake with eccentric curios, local craftsmanship and quirky surprises behind each door. The locally made toiletries in every room are provided by Field Day Scents.
The Harrison celebrates what is great about Belfast – carpets from the makers of the Titanic’s floorings, railings from the Ebrington Barracks dating to 1840, and floorboards from the nearby Royal Victoria hospital. Selected wallpapers have been hand-designed by local designer Grainne Maher.
The buildings themselves are restored Victorian merchants’ residents dating from 1879, and are ideally located close to the Queen’s University area.
Room types range from the smaller Bohemian to the spacious and luxurious Aristocrat. Rates range from £95 – £150 per room per night. Continental breakfast from £15 per person. Free parking is available at the rear of the property.
