The Europa Hotel first opened its doors for business in July 1971 and has been opening its doors to history in the making ever since.
It has even made history itself – once holding the dubious title of the most bombed hotel in the world. Depite this reputation it was the place that President Clinton wanted to stay during his first historic visit to Belfast in 1995.
In the Headlines looks at the history of the familiar Belfast landmark and its changing fortunes over the years. Packed with contemporary colour and archive black and white photographs the book also features any interviews and memories of past members of staff, journalists and celebrity visitors.
Scoular’s fluent style and thorough research provide a book which rises above mere marketing-speak to tell a unique story well. It is worth picking up. Ulster Tatler, April 2004
