Andy McNeill, Stormont Hotel GM

“The Stormont Hotel has had a great year and I’m delighted to report that our occupancy and events business is continuing to grow steadily,” says Andy McNeill, general manager. “Last year we completed a £1m renovation programme and, as part of this, the lounge was extended to twice the size with a new bar and coffee station, the capacity of the Grand Ballroom was increased from 340 to 400, the restaurant received an extensive redevelopment and 20 bedrooms were upgraded.”

And, following on from its recent investment, the Stormont is currently renovating another 30 bedrooms to maintain its high-quality standards.

“We are also building upon the growth of our events business and I’m delighted to report that in 2019, and indeed the next two years, we have an increase in bookings for weddings, corporate events, tribute shows and Christmas events.

“We’ve also been attracting larger conferences, gala dinners and business functions which we didn’t in the past, so I think the Stormont is now being given the recognition it deserves as being one of Belfast’s leading hotels for all types of events.”
