“Afternoon Tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

Had afternoon tea today at The Fitzwilliam as an early Mothers Day treat for my mum. From the moment we arrived our waiter Brian made us feel very welcome. We were given the choice of having it in the bar/lounge area or the lobby. We opted for the lobby beside the fire. Comfortable, quiet & more private than you would think.
Brian certainly knew his teas & the choice of sandwiches, pastries etc was scrumptious. I was also lucky enough to have a great choice of gluten free treats!
A lovely afternoon was had by all & we cant praise Brian enough for his attention throughout our 3 hour stay.

I booked in for the cocktail making class in March 2014. There was a group of 10 girls who took part in the cocktail masterclass at the hotel followed by a 3 course dinner in the restaurant.

The hotel staff were excellent, greeting us in reception and showing us to the room the class was taking place in. Our class was on the top floor of the hotel with great views of the city and the room was lovely. Our cocktail class was fantastic and everyone had great fun making and trying the cocktails. Our host was great too, he was called Dave and was very knowledgeable and patient with a large group of girls. He made us all feel welcome and gave us all a laugh. Canapes and champagne were also served whilst we tasted the cocktails.

After the class we moved down to the restaurant for our three course meal. It was excellent, there was a good selection, portion sizes were good and the staff were very attentive.

The staff couldn't do enough for us and nothing was too much trouble. We had a great hen party here and I would definitely recommend!

Stayed for 3 nights last weekend and loved every minute. we arrived at 11.15am and our room was ready and we were checked in promptly. Reception staff, very professional, a little too much for us, not much warmth, very business like.
Bar staff are outstanding, professional, funny, knowledgeable and mix a mean cocktail. Food in bar is nice, nothing outstanding but very nice. Bar itself is lovely, furnished in lovely bright colours, and very comfortable with a great atmosphere especially on Friday and Saturday nights with plenty of staff serving.
Rooms are marvellous, large, bright and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. We were on the 6th floor with lovely views over the hills. Very little traffic noise.
Breakfast was included and both the buffet and cooked selection was lovely and very tasty. Service attentive. One bug was the kitchen door slamming every time a member staff entered or exited, Most off putting and stopped us booking in to the restaurant just in case we got seated near it.
within walking distance of all major attractions, we hired a car to drive to the Giants causeway and then followed the coastal route back - outstanding. Hired from Europcar, just a 5 minute walk from hotel and great rates if you booked in advance on line.
Titanic exhibition is wonderful as is afternoon tea there, the Hop on hop off bus is great value and worth a ride.
Mournes Seafood and Howard street Restaurants are outstanding as is Kelly Cellars, best pint of Guinness in the city. Crown Liquor Saloon worth popping in to, the décor is so ornate it is breath-taking.
Airport bus 300 £10.50 return, get off at the Europa Bus Centre, 2 minute walk to the hotel.

Great hotel, service and location! We arrived on Saturday 22th March on a train from Dublin. It took about 20min to walk to the hotel. We didn't mind the walk and on the way we passed George's Market which is the best market i've ever been to in a city (open weekends only, voted no.1 UK Market 2014). we also seen the city hall on the way. However it was very cold so bring your gloves and coats for March.
Our Hotel room was on the third floor and had a lovely view of the mountains behind floor to ceiling glazing Rm 319. We splashed out and booked the Titantic package with Fitzwilliam. It was expensive to our usual budget but we wanted something special and modern for a change. The room was perfect with free wifi and a good selection of TV channels. The bathroom surprisingly had a bath and separate shower. The best thing we both agreed on was the breakfast. There was a good selection in the Continental buffet and the staff there were really nice and prompt. We were delighted to see pancakes on the menu and didn't hesitate to ask for bacon on the side. Sometimes the traditional breakfast is too heavy after that alcohol. If I have any Cons. The selection of main course's on the package menu was't great. I had the Organic Salmon with noodles. The noodles were too salty and i would of sent it back had i noticed abit earlier. Still it was a good trip 5/5

Room Tip: Rm 319 419 519 Etc.

The Fitzwilliam is a beautiful hotel, very centrally located, friendly staff, excellent amenities.
We had a good value dinner menu, which included wine, and the food was delicious.
On the downside, Breakfast wasn't in the deal and the car parking fee was a little pricey.
However, it's a great hotel and we had a lovely time.

My wife and I stayed at the Fitzwilliam Hotel last weekend for her birthday, and our overall experience was very enjoyable. The hotel is nicely designed with a bright lobby and reception area, where the staff are warm and welcoming. Even though the hotel was quite busy, the check in process was quick and painless. The Concierge brought our bag up to the room, which was spotlessly clean, and had a great view of the city. We were right beside the lifts, but there was no noise from the coming and going of other guests. Some cocktails in the bar went down well, before heading out to dinner. My wife and I don't often get away for the night, so after organising babysitters and spending money on a hotel, it means so much more when there is no stress or problems, just a really relaxing experience in a nice setting with brilliant, professional staff.
We look forward to staying again soon.

I stayed here in November 2013. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience in this beautiful hotel. Upon arrival myself & my partner were greeted by a lovely receptionist who dealt with our check in and the parking of our car in a very warm & attentive manner. I booked a 'Studio Suite' via booking.com in the special remarks I said that we were celebrating our anniversary so just if they could assign a room with since view as I already had booked an amazing suite I wasn't expecting much more!

Upon arriving to our room there was nice classical music playing softly in the background & a welcome card from the manager congratulating Mr & Mrs X on their wedding anniversary. Whilst it was a lovely touch it was funny as we are not married nor are we man & woman. We both got a great laugh out of this as did the receptionist when we told her when we were leaving that evening for dinner. It was a nice thought though.

The room was phenomenal with amazing linen, the bathroom is extraordinary and the view was gorgeous at night. The breakfast was great, with a good selection to choose from.

All the staff were helpful, pleasant & attentive. I could not fault this hotel in anyway, and have recommended it to all my friends & family!

I cannot wait to stay here again!! :)
