As guests in the hotel we decided not to brave a winter's night and go to the hotel bar. It lacked atmosphere and served really poor Guinness. Should be a lot better.

Purchased a living social voucher for afternoon tea as a treat for mum and I and, I can say it was just average. I have been to many places in Belfast for afternoon tea so I have a lot to compare it with. The food itself was ok, nothing exciting, in fact it looked pretty boring! I didn't even take... More

I took my girlfriend here as a treat for a night as got a great offer on Bed, Breakfast & 3 Course Evening Meal, on a Friday night. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed. The check in process was quick and painless. I had booked a Superior room which was absolutely fantastic, a very very modern look... More

Ridiculously long wait to get our food even though the pub was barely half full. We were given every excuse in the book. Finally, we were told the pub shared a kitchen with the restaurant, which was very busy. Forty-five minutes to wait for food is simply unacceptful, regardless of the reason. And the food was only good, not great.... More

Fabulous location for cocktails if you are planning on a night at the opera house! Good choice of cocktails and light nibbles at the table. Bit of a wait for the cocktails as they only had 2 bar staff on. Cocktails are quite expensive and the wait for them annoying. But it's a lovely atmosphere and I'll just order my... More

If you happen to be in town when there's a concert, there is a very good chance that someone famous might be staying here. The cast from the Game of Thrones, well... at least some of them, passed by once when I was there in the bar. Cool place, kind of tucked away from the side of the lobby.

We are staying at the Fitzwilliam but had to review the bar separately because it's so good. The service we received tonight when we had dinner at the bar was second to none. To think we only ate here because the pubs across the road were busy!

I took my mum for Afternoon Tea at The Fitzwilliam Hotel today and was pleasantly surprised as how nice and relaxing it was. The food quality was top notch with choices of six sandwiches for us both, a wonderful selection of pastries, portions of Eton Mess and YUMMY chocolates with a choice of either tea/coffee/herbal tea. The staff couldn't have... More

Was here to watch the rugby and the bar like most got better as it filled up. Staff were good checking on the table to see if we wanted more drinks. Bar food was very good as well.

We had a couple of friends visit us from Manchester for the weekend. We enjoyed a lovely dinner in a nearby restaurant and decided to have a couple of quiet drinks at Fitzwilliam before going home. Upon entering the bar of the hotel there were no seats, apart from a couple of high chairs by the bar. Our friend, who... More
