There is then the option to extend the lease further up to March 2019.

Dalata will next year open its fourth hotel in Belfast.

The Ballsbridge Hotel, a separate hotel to Dalata's Clayton Hotel Ballsbridge, is a four-star, 392-room hotel located on Pembroke Road and adjacent to Lansdowne Road, in Dublin 4.

Dalata has operated the hotel under lease since January 2012.

Dermot Crowley, Dalata deputy CEO, said: We are pleased to extend our lease with Chartered Land on the Ballsbridge Hotel for the busy 2018 season."

The company operates the Clayton Hotel in Belfast, as well as Maldron Hotels in Londonderry and at Belfast International Airport.

It is due to open another Maldron in Belfast city centre.
