Blogger Sleepover at Malone Lodge Hotel

When the Malone Lodge Hotel contacted Belfast Fashion & Beauty bloggers (also known as FABB), to see if we would like to come for a girly sleepover at their newly renovated hotel, we jumped at the chance. It was a great opportunity for us to explore somewhere new and spend time together. Malone Lodge Hotel's recent renovation has established its position as one of Northern Ireland's best hotels. A family run business, the hotel is friendly, fun luxury. Located on Eglantine Avenue, it is situated close to Belfast's trendy Lisburn Road and within close distance of the city centre and Queen's University Belfast. The staff are friendly, the rooms are modern but not too minimal and the food at the Knife & Fork restaurant is second to none. 

I shared a room with my blogging bestie, Sara from Belfast Beauty Love. Our room was huge (as was the bathroom!). The beds were super comfy and I noticed the large wardrobe which would be great for anyone visiting Belfast on a holiday. We were also kindly greeted with onesies courtesy of Bank. I was given a leopard Amy Child's number which says "Party Animal" on the back. Very apt! 

After dropping our bags at our rooms, we chilled in the lobby with some refreshing drinks. Below I am pictured with my Sara and Dawn. We were then were taken on a little tour of the hotel. I was very impressed with the Deramore Suite which can be partitioned off into smaller rooms or hold up to 240. We saw it set up for a 50th Birthday using half the room then the following day, for a wedding using the room at full size. Downstairs, the Malone Suite is a purpose built venue for civil ceremonies. They had converted this room into our party room for the night, showing that it can be used for many different functions! 

I loved the vintage inspired photographs displayed in the hallways 

We retreated to the Malone Suite in our PJ's where they had a huge bed (I think 3 double beds pushed together), cocktails, a stunning selection of food from the Knife and Fork, cupcakes from cakes by James and a lovely demonstration from the girls at Skin Medi Spa. Personally, I planted myself in the middle of the very large bed! I was tempted to sleep there for the night. This was then followed by a viewing of Breakfast at Tiffany's, popcorn and lots of makeup and girly chat!

I was kindly gifted Pure Cotton Revere Collar Dobby Heart Print Pyjamas (£25) from Marks and Spencer for the sleepover. As they are pure cotton, they didn't make me feel too warm and have the cutest heart print. They felt really traditional and cosy. I can't wait to wear them during the autumn and winter months. They would also make a beautiful gift as they are amazing quality for the price. They are pictured below with my Malone Lodge slippers! 

After a night's rest in our lovely rooms (okay, some of us didn't go to bed until 1.30am... too much to talk about!), we hit up the Knife and Fork restaurant for a scrumptious breakfast. I opted for the Full Irish Breakfast with a pot of Peppermint Tea (complete with cute tea pot!). Some of the girls got the pancakes which also looks delicious. 

Overall, an amazing stay at the Malone Lodge Hotel. I'd encourage anyone to visit this beautiful family run hotel either for a stay or for a steak at the Knife and Fork. They plan to start afternoon tea within the next few weeks which will also be an fantastic addition to their glamorous lobby.
