A POPULAR north Belfast hotel has closed its' doors temporarily as it undergoes a refurbishment.

The Lansdowne Hotel, on the Antrim Road, is expected to be shut for several weeks to allow renovation work to be completed.

Several posts on social media expressed concern that the closure was permanent, but the hotel moved to allay fears by clarifying that it was to enable a refurbishment.
