Grand Central Hotel - How did we do?

Published by Northside • 2nd August 2018

The Grand Central Hotel, the seventh hotel in the Hastings Hotels collection, opened to guests in late June this year.

Situated in the heart of Belfast, the hotel is a magnificent contemporary reincarnation of a Victorian hotel with the same name that glimmered on Royal Avenue from 1893 to 1979. Inside the hotel, grandeur meets glamour, just as it did in the original Grand Central. The hotel is truly something to behold, a new jewel for Belfast with an old soul. For us, this means it is extremely important that all their printed materials matched this level of quality and brand image.
The Grand Central Hotel and Northside Graphics
As we have been already working with the Hastings Hotels Group for over eight years, supplying a wide range of print collateral to all their existing hotels, including The Culloden Estate and Spa, the Slieve Donard Resort and Spa, The Europa, Stormont, Ballygally Castle and Everglades - we were thrilled to be involved in the printing of many of the materials and menus required for this newest addition to The Hastings Group.
Perfect Print Partners
The launch of such a prestigious hotel was a massive and exciting project and it was essential to ensure that all the printed materials were ready and in place for the first guests’ arrival in late June.
We’re delighted to be their chosen print partner for this major project, supplying a wide variety of print across all departments of the hotel, including:
Door hangers - Do Not Disturb and Room Breakfast Menus
Employee handbooks
Business cards
Bar & Cocktail menus
Seahorse Restaurant Dinner, Breakfast & Afternoon Tea Menus
Promotional strut cards & posters
Car parking signs
Grand Café collateral – including all menus and signs
Foamex panels - Welcome Signs for the Restaurant
Cocktail, Bar and Afternoon Tea menus for the Observatory Cocktail Lounge
Here’s what Joanne Harvey, Group Marketing Manager from Hastings Hotels had to say about their partnership with us:
”Northside Graphics have been a key supplier over recent years and we are extremely impressed by their consistent high levels of quality, service and reliability. From straightforward small print requirements to more complex and intricate jobs where I required advice on paper choices and samples, they always meet and exceeded my expectations. Having them working closely with us for the launch of our latest flagship hotel in Belfast City Centre was a huge benefit as it was vital that all our printed collateral was of the highest quality to reflect our stunning new branding and design for all parts of the hotel.  At times some of our deadlines were very tight and David and the team always delivered on time and even in person at very short notice, to ensure we had ever single item of print in place for the first guests arriving.  I look forward to continuing this fabulous partnership as we look at many more print projects in the future!”.
