I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Belfast. This renovated old bank is in an excellent location near restaurants and shopping. The front doors open to the grand room where there is restaurant seating. The desk for checking into the hotel is actually on the side of the building.

I have just had the most amazing spa day with my daughter who treated me for my 50th birthday. I can't tell how fantastic this day has been. The treatments and staff were fantastic. I would definitely recommend having the tea ritual at the spa and then go for some cocktails in the bar !!

My stay at the Merchant Hotel was a delight. The staff saw to my every need and made me feel right at home. The food was excellent and my room was pure luxury. The soaking tub was a wonderful world of relaxation. I look forward to my next stay.

We have five little ones at home, so an uninterrupted night's sleep was our main priority. Slight noise outside around... More

We arrived to a very warm and helpful welcome. The hotel is very attractive. We stayed in "The Art Deco" side in a beautifully designed room. The bed and bedding are top quality, never slept better !! The grand room, where we had a tremendous choice of breakfast food is stunning. Breakfast was excellent too. Central, to the city centre...

I had been planning to visit the Merchant for a long time now so when I did finally book in I couldn’t wait to get there. My worry was that I had heard so much about it that there was no way that it could truly live up to its hype. So in the back of my mind I had... More
