Festive Prosecco Afternoon Tea at the MalMaison Hotel, Belfast

I bought Amy vouchers for afternoon tea at the MalMaison Hotel in Belfast for passing the first year of her PHD. We finally got the chance to use them at the weekend.

When we arrived at the MalMaison we were told that we would be eating from their festive afternoon tea menu instead of the regular one, which was a lovely surprise.

The Hotel

As soon as we walked in we saw this gorgeous Christmas tree at the entrance. The whole hotel is completely decked out for Christmas and I actually felt festive for the first time this year! The staff at the MalMaison were really friendly and attentive, which made the whole experience even more enjoyable.

The Food

The amount of food was got was insane – but of course, we completely cleared our plates. We got:

  • A glass of Prosecco each
  • Fruit Scones with Jam and Cream (the scones tasted of cinnamon – they were to die for!)
  • Turkey, cranberry and stuffing wraps
  • Mal Sliders (two mini burgers)
  • Pigs In Blankets served in a Brioche roll
  • Christmas fruit cake
  • Mini Mince Pies
  • Two Christmas gingerbread men
  • Chocolate Yule Log
  • Sherry Trifle
  • Two big pots of tea – there were so many different types of tea to choose from. I went for Darjeeling – but you name it, and it was on the list!

I’m not usually a huge fan of Christmas cake or mince pies but I really enjoyed them here. I think that’s testament to how good the food is at the MalMaison.

The price for two people was £50.00. I think it was worth the money especially when you consider the quality of the food along with the quality of the service. Whilst it’s not something we’ll be doing every weekend, it’s perfect for an indulgent treat. I would definitely recommend the MalMaison for afternoon tea, especially if you can get yourself booked in before the end of December to try their festive menu! You can book your experience here.

If you’re not based in Northern Ireland, don’t worry, MalMaison have a number of hotels across the UK! They have hotels in: Aberdeen, Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton, Cheltenham, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Oxford and Reading. So hopefully you’ll be able to find one near you.

      For all the bad press it’s had in the past, it’s an amazing city and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else 🙂 x

    It sounds fantastic. I hope someday to make it to the UK and see every one of those cities you mentioned.

    This sounds wonderful. The Christmas tree is beautiful. I live in Canada, so I can only dream of coming to the UK and Ireland. I wish you and your family a beautiful Christmas season.

    I/we looked at Malmaison in Edinburgh for the wedding. Obviously, we got married in the wrong season. Do-over with that tree in the photos.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    I also want to improve SEO of my website. Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Jan Zac
