A new hotel experience has arrived in Belfast with the opening of the eagerly anticipated Hampton By Hilton Hotel located in Central Belfast within walking distance of the fashionable Victoria Square shopping centre and many of the city’s attractions.

After a busy day, unwind in your spacious room with a clean and fresh Hampton bed.
Hampton By Hilton is a modern hotel with 178 bedrooms and family friendly facilities and only 15 minutes by car from Belfast City airport so this is the perfect place to stay for business or pleasure.
So it was delight all around at Robinson Services Laundry when they were selected to be the chosen linen supply partners for this exclusive hotel which is set to become a Belfast landmark.
David Robinson , Managing Director Robinson Services commented :
“Robinson Services Laundry already provide linen and washroom services to many hotel across Northern Ireland and this new and unique hotel located in the heart of the city will provide a unique experience for people who are tired of the usual and want something different. We are now delighted to add this additional high profile customer to our list of satisfied customers who trust Robinson Services Laundry to provide laundry and linen to an exceptionally high standard and look forward to being of service to both the hotel and the restaurant for many years to come.”
For the second year in a row Robinson Services has featured in The Belfast Telegraph top 50 largest employers in Northern Ireland. New business opportunities with Northern Ireland Electricity, Randox Laboratories and Belfast Metropolitan College has seen our position change from 34th to 33rd, representing a 9% increase in employee numbers. Whilst not measured by employee numbers, we have also enjoyed increased growth from within our laundry and hygiene businesses.
David Robinson, Managing Director of Robinson Services, commented;
With business growth on the island of Ireland at its lowest since 2013 and the number of businesses reporting to be in stability mode at its highest since 2011, we are naturally delighted that our turnover and employee numbers have both increased during the previous 12 months. Whilst conscious of the increasing pressure on the high street, the spectre of inflation and uncertainty around Brexit, it is reassuring to see that Robinson Services has been listed amongst the top 50 employers in Northern Ireland once again.

The Jungle’s mentally stimulating and physical challenge was just what the management team needed.
