There were pros and cons to our recent stay at the hotel. On the plus side - the room was nice and spacious. We had a junior suite. Turn down service every night. The hotel bar gets crowded but Berts Bar and restaurant is terrific- ate there one night and the food was great. We loved the gin and tonic... More

There is so much to enjoy at the Merchant Hotel - I enjoy my stay there more at each visit. The team are fabulous, the last time I stayed the receptionist welcomed me by name on my arrival - I felt very much at home.

I follow a very strict diet due to allergies & intolerances. This means eating out can often be difficult. But not at The Merchant! I keep returning here because they're so accommodating! All I have to do is email them prior to my visit & they prepare an appropriate meal or afternoon tea for me. The chefs are excellent with... More

Excellent. Relaxed posh surroundings, warm friendly welcome, first class service, and lovely atmosphere. We had afternoon tea for four with the most delicious variety of small delicate sandwiches, hot scones with jam & clotted cream, lemon cake, and the most amazing range of pastry and desserts. There was so much to choose from and the range of teas available was... More

Stayed here with my wife for one night. I can't imagine how our experience could have been better. Staff were very friendly, room was perfect and breakfast was wonderful. The location couldn't be better. Will definitely stay here next time in Belfast.

Finally getting down to reviewing this amazing hotel we stayed in whilst enjoying an anniversary day out in Belfast. From start to finish the experience was superb. This was booked very last minute and the professionalism from the staff even on the phone was fantastic. Very courteous on arrival and we were shown to our art deco room. Fabulous size... More

We had a super time at this hotel. Everyone was so helpful. The room (suite) was outstanding as was the restaurant food. Will return when we are next in Belfast. Very highly recommended by us both. Thank you Merchant Hotel!

My husband and our 2 adult daughters stayed here during our trip to Ireland. This hotel is fabulous. Large rooms, clean, scrumptious bedding and linens. Our daughters couldn't stop talking about their room on the 5th floor. Only one "hick-up." They were awakened by a thump, thump, thumping at 6:30 in the morning only to find out that their room...

4th visit to Merchants have never been disappointed from the minute you arrive until you leave the service is first class. I'd recommend the full Irish breakfast. Hot tub on the roof let's you relax while watching everyone go by.
