Eco hotel brand room2 has announced its fourth property will open in Belfast on 16 October, 2023.

Owned by the Lamington Group, it will be the first room2 property outside of England, with existing hotels in Hammersmith, Southampton and Chiswick (which we reviewed last year).

The new property will consist of 175 rooms across nine floors as well as a café,  tea room, four meeting and event spaces, a gym, bar, restaurant, laundry room and a lounge available for guests and locals to work, relax or hang out with friends.

Each bedroom will feature a fully equipped kitchenette and separate living space. Rooms will also come with mattress menus to help guests create the ideal home environment.

In line with the brand’s focus on sustainability, the fully electric room2 Belfast will include occupancy-enabled rooms (meaning power is only operated when the room is occupied), 100 per cent renewable energy including solar power, and local sourcing of materials, products and artwork.

The building will also have 100 per cent of its embodied carbon rebalanced to zero, and 100 per cent of operational carbon will be rebalanced to zero on an annual basis.

The property’s design is focused on promoting a circular economy, with features such as a café bar made with recycled glass, a reception desk created with soap bottles, and carpets made from recycled fishing nets.

The hotel will also have its own plastic shredder and moulder from the Sustainable Design Studio to create items from plastic waste.

A sustainability wall explaining the hotel’s features as well as regular sustainability workshops will also be key features to help inspire and educate guests on eco-friendly practices.

Michelle Thomas, Lamington Group’s new openings manager said: “We are so excited to expand our portfolio and open our biggest hometel to date in the vibrant city of Belfast. We want our hometel to provide a place of comfort for both locals and tourists, further making our mark in the hometel sector of the hospitality industry.”
