The popular East Belfast hotel, which once hosted Arnie, is closing


A hotel that has been at the heart of the East Belfast community for 60 years has closed with the loss of 45 jobs.

Guests at the Park Avenue Hotel on Holywood Road have lamented the loss of the venue, which was taken over last year by the Beannchor Group, owners of the Merchant Hotel.

As well as hosting weddings and other family celebrations, it was a venue for everything from political party conferences to bodybuilding competitions.
