If you want a value location just a few the Lisburn Road for a quick break from the shopping or from meetings, pop in here. It’s cheap and cheerful in the best way - unbeatable value.

We were staying up the road at the Malone Lodge Hotel and Apartments. We had breakfast at The Mad Hatter Cafe one morning and it was so much better than what was being offered at the hotel. Highly recommended.
