“Excellent Hotel and very memorable stay....”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

I stayed on a Saturday night with my girlfriend. The room was excellent and it was spotless. The staff at checkin were very friendly and helpful, as were all the staff throughout the hotel. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Hotel. This was a special stay for us as I asked my girlfriend to marry me in the Hotel room that night................ and she said yes. The Fitzwilliam Hotel will always be a special place for us and I am sure we will make a few return visits in the future.

This is a perfect example of how far a first impression can go. We arrived in Belfast a bit early and I simply went into the hotel to ask a quick question for directions. When told I was checking in later that day Phillip, the Concierge, not only asked my questions but also had us checked into the hotel and all of our activities arranged for and booked for our entire two day stay. Before you knew it we were in our room waiting for our black taxi tour to come pick us up. The taxi driver was already instructed to take us to our post tour destination and what time we needed to be there. He then booked us a table for dinner that evening and gave us instructions for going to the Causeway the next day. Not to mention a few recommendations on some pubs we could visit as well. The room was fantastic as well. We had no problems with the room but a service manager came and did a check on some lights anyway. I guess an earlier guest had problems but it was fine while we were there. The location was great for us. Close to everything we wanted to see, including The Crown Liquor Saloon which is a must see across the street from this hotel if you stay here. I highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Fitzwilliam with friends , the hotel was central to a fantastic weekend in Belfast, central geographically as well as importance. I rather get the "is it a four or five star?" debate in some reviews. On one hand the staff are spot on, it's really well laid out and appointed in all areas. The bathrooms are great with a separate large shower and bath, the decor is nicely designed, beds and bedding crisp and comfortable. But if I am being very picky, and five stars are to be picked at I suppose. The settee in the room was a little frayed, not through wear more by bad design. We didn't take a newspaper our friends did and it turned out not to be complimentary as is usually the case in top hotels. Oh and a Coors Light in a Peroni glass......tut tut ;)
That said it's a top hotel and really well located, and it will definitely where we head next time over, four, four and a half or five star.

Stayed just the one night on Saturday in an exec room. Room was spot on as were the staff which made our stay just that little bit better.
Would recommend this hotel it's location was spot on. If we ever return to Belfast we will stay at the Fitzwilliam.

Just back from a one night stay that i won with work to this hotel. Hotel has a great location. Central to everything. Room was ready on check in at 12.00pm so we were delighted. Room was spotless. All staff through out the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much bother to them. Breakfast was included and plenty of choice with excellent service.
We would definitely stay here again.

I am just back from 2 nights in the Fitzwilliam hotel for my birthday. It was our first time staying in the hotel.
The hotel had been paid in advance by my friend as a gift so we were both looking forward to the weekend ahead.
On arrival we were greeted by one of the girls on reception who was very friendly but when we tried to book in she told us there was no room booked. We spent 15minutes trying to get the issue resolved as meanwhile she answered the reception phone to deal with other peoples queries.
Finally we got to our room. First thing that we noticed was that the main mirror in the bedroom was being blocked by a tv . So we had to try and use the bathroom door as a mirror but it was impossible to see as it was so dimly lit in the room.
The power of the shower was not great and in cheaper hotels in belfast its much better
We then headed down to the bar before we headed out...we tried to have a conversation with a few of the male staff that served us but we merely received grunts or just yes or no as an answer. Very poor customer interaction.
We headed out and later returned to our room. Only to realise that the heating would not come on. I contacted reception on the number provided and a man from the foyer came up and handed up a heater to plug in!! Not what i would expect from this hotel!!
We tried to get to sleep but the bed / pillows were unbelievable uncomfortable. So then decided to go outside for a smoke only for the same man from the foyer to say to 'should we not be sleeping' in a rather horrible tone.
on our second night we had drinks ordered to our room before we went out only for the person delivering then to drop empty bottles and glasses all over the floor.
The whole experience was not what i expected and a birthday treat turned into a very poor weekend!

I booked 2 nights here as a surprise for my boyfriends 40th birthday and it was absolutely amazing. The room was stunning, toiletries were really luxurious and the staff were very welcoming and friendly. Check in was meant to be from 2pm but as our flight was early and there was a room available straight away, they did not mind us checking in early.
Our room was on the 7th floor and was very quiet.
I would definitely stay here again and would certainly recommend to anyone I know coming to belfast :) xxx
