A warm welcome to The Malone, Northern Ireland’s finest, four-star boutique hotel, just minutes from the bustling heart of Belfast city centre.

We think you’ll love the tradition, tranquillity, elegance and warmth of our Victorian townhouse hotel, set in the leafy avenues of the University Quarter and opening on to Belfast’s Lisburn Road, lined with fashionable and unique boutique shops.

The Malone is a veritable secret, hidden treasure boasting everything you want in a hotel: spacious bedrooms and suites, function rooms for inspirational wedding celebrations or corporate events and the very best of that famous Irish hospitality, every step of your stay. The Guinness is perfectly poured in our Greyhound bar – enjoy with a bowl of steaming mussels or indulge in a meal to remember in the Gallery Restaurant.

Here at The Malone, we have generations of experience in welcoming guests. First opened in 1945 as ‘The Bowness’, for the last 20 years, The Malone has been owned and run by two generations of the Macklin family.

Relax and unwind with us. A warm Irish welcome to you!

Facilities and Capacity

A dedicated ceremony site is available for couples to use at this location. The Malone Suite provides an elegant space where almost-newlyweds can exchange vows and begin the first chapter of their life together. Here, chairs may be laid out either side of the aisle so that guests have an ideal vantage point for the big moment. At the head of the room, the couple can stand, hold hands, and declare their love for one another. The space is defined by mirrored ceilings with exposed beams, lending the area a graceful refinement. After the ceremony, the newlyweds can make their way to a site of their choice to enjoy some photo opportunities. The Malone is not far from The Botanic Gardens and a number of other landmarks, meaning that beautiful backdrops are readily available. When the time comes for the wedding breakfast and grand reception, everyone can make their way inside to enjoy the rest of the evening.

The Deramore Suite offers a spacious room where everyone is welcome to gather and enjoy each other’s company. Tables and chairs may be set up for the all-important meal as invitees settle in to enjoy the occasion. A top table offers somewhere for the couple and select wedding party members to sit and deliver toasts. Overall, the maximum capacity of The Malone is for 240 people while as few as 30 people can also enjoy the venue.

Services Offered

A variety of wedding packages are available for couples to peruse. The three main offerings are the Embrace, Cherish, and Eternity collections, and these can be customised to suit. Dedicated staff, including an expert wedding coordinator and master of ceremonies, take pride in ensuring that The Malone lives up to expectations. What’s more, catering specialists delight in crafting delectable fare. Various other features include tasteful accommodation, dance floor, entertainment facilities, parking, and much more.

    Highly recommend

    I booked Malone Lodge Hotel for my wedding evening reception for 29.09.18 as I got married in Cyprus 1 week earlier. The wedding planners were very helpful with the organisation and communication with the decoration team putting my mind at ease. Special mention to Katie and Suzi who helped keep myself and husband stay calm in the lead up to our big reveal. The timing of the evening was on point and the food was delicious, everybody commented on how lovely it was. I would highly Recommend this venue to Brides of 2019

    Excellent Venue for a Wedding

    I am about a month late writing this review but I can honestly say that this Hotel is a perfect location to hold a wedding.

    We had our wedding here in early September and I have to say that the staff were excellent, so helpful and easy to work with, especially Katie and Richard who we dealt with the most. They always provided helpful advice through-out the whole process and were on hand during the day if anything was required.

    The food was of the highest quality and we even met with the chef beforehand, who discussed the origins of all the produce, and how the food would be served on the day. Service was prompt and all the guests commented on how much the enjoyed the meal.

    The function room was dressed by Charm and I would really recommend this, as the room looked amazing.

    The next morning the hotel organised a late breakfast for the wedding party which was a really nice touch, the breakfast was lovely and there were a number of options on the menu.

    All in all , we were extremely happy with how the day went and that was due, in no small part, to the extremely capable staff at the Malone Lodge.

    Not a bad word to say!

    Like most brides I had 2 or 3 venues on my mind and was deliberating which to choose from, until I met Katie the wedding coordinator at Malone Lodge, her interest, enthusiasm, time and dedication to us as a couple was enough for me to lose a deposit on another venue in favour of Malone Lodge, with such an intimate, personable and family feel for it Malone Lodge is a beautiful venue and setting for a wedding, we had the most magical and memorable day and a lot of that was because of the interactions with the staff, Katie and others, they were all so involved in the wedding leading up to it to make sure that everything went according to plan and it if there was a change to be made (or I changed my mind about something as brides often do) nothing was ever a problem, in fact the team went out of their way to ensure that me 'the bride' was happy and content with every single aspect of the day, from arrival until going to bed! As for the food, as a couple we were so involved with the choice and tasting of food that we were on first name terms with the chef Michael, he checked in with us also to ensure we were happy, my only regret about the day is that I can’t do it all over again - and if I did I wouldn't change a thing about the venue! Above everything else their customer service and communication skills are 110%!

    We very pleased with our day and couldn’t have wished for better, so thank you for your planning and organising and the rest of the staff who helped. We would recommend Malone Lodge to anyone!

    Outstanding service

    We had our wedding here in May of this year and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough!! The entire team went above and beyond, they decorated the room for us and kept everything running smoothly all day. The food is amazing, our guests still talk about how good the food and service was! We have also been back a few times for dinner and the food is always amazing.
    The rooms where really neat and tidy and clean, they have been modernised recently so they look really nice and are a great size! Our room also had a big jucuzzi bath which was a bonus!
