Belfast’s largest hotel group, Andras Hotels, has unveiled a £500K upgrade in the conferencing and banqueting suites of its flagship property, The Ramada Plaza, Belfast.
Over 150 guests were treated to a sumptuous five-course meal with entertainment from world-renowned mentalist, David Meade in the newly refurbished Malone Suite.
The finished project, which was supported by Danske Bank and designed by multi-award winning interior designer, Philip Rodgers, boasts a major upgrade of the hotel bar and conference centre. The contemporary finish in neutral colours gives a new modern vibe to one of the City’s longest running hotels.
The work completes stage four of the five-stage plan for the leading hotel, which recently benefitted from a £1million refurbishment, which included a complete transformation of its Grand Ballroom, lobby and Laganview Suite.
Rajesh Rana, Director of Andras Hotels commented; “We are thrilled with the end result of the next stage in our continued growth and development.
“This refurbishment has been design-led, with designers Philip Rodgers providing a unique look that feature handmade fittings and bespoke items of furniture and lighting that will ensure that the Ramada Plaza is offering customers the very best it can and compliments the rest of the hotel’s exceptional standard of interiors.
“The result is a 5-star level of fit-out, guaranteeing that we can provide a wide range of top class events facilities to suit our clients tastes and requirements.
“We anticipate that the upgraded conference centre and new-look Malone Suite with new pre-function area, will secure further business and gala events to the hotel and we look forward to strengthening our burgeoning conferencing and wedding markets.”
Hugh Black, President of Belfast Chamber of Trade and Commerce commented: “The work unveiled here this evening is absolutely first-class and a real a testimony to the hard work and dedication that the Andras Group has given to the Northern Ireland hospitality industry over the past thirty years.”
