Hands down the best bramble I have ever tasted. Nice location and a very knowledge bar tender- anyone looking for style and sophistication this is the place to go. Lovely home made nibbles for the table too. The decor is very impressive. I recommend to all my friends

Great place to stay. Our Art Deco room was fabulous, large, ultra comfortable with lovely bathroom. We had a wonderful meal in the restaurant - what a fantastic space, main hall of the old bank. Pricey but worth every penny, with impeccable service. I'd definitely go back.

Every time we replied that we were staying at the Merchant, locals responded with "ooh." Clearly it's well respected in Belfast and for good reason. The service is top notch, the rooms clean and well appointed (but a bit dark), and the bar a hip gathering spot. The included breakfast was varied and generous, making a stay here a great... More

We stayed in The Merchant shortly after it opened. We returned for an anniversary stay after viewing the rates available on their own website. A lot of 4 star hotels were only around £30 cheaper. From the quality of the welcome from the conceirge and reception staff, to the quality of the room from the decor to the most comfortable... More

I booked the hotel for a surprise birthday lunch for my other half. The staff were fantastic and helped make the gathering a memorable occasion. The service during the lunch was first class and the food was of a very high quality. I also booked one of the suites for a night away after the lunch. The suites are amazing.... More

Stayed here a few times. Love the art deco rooms especially, they are spacious and luxurious. The roof top hot tub is a must! We've had afternoon tea in the great room,it was lovely. Also don't leave without trying a cocktail or two!
