“Good Hotel -- Great Location”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for three nights recently and really enjoyed our stay. I had upgraded and we received a street facing, nicely appointed spacious room. Breakfast each morning was very good with plenty of choice and good service. The one evening meal we booked was somewhat disappointing but there are plenty of places to dine out due to the central location of the hotel. Staff were very attentive and courteous when called upon. In particular, the cocktail bar is very good indeed especially if you can get your hands on one of the cosy booths. Be warned though, this bar is a popular spot with locals and theatre goers on weekends. Overall I would recommend this hotel and will re-visit in the future.

Points to note:

1. Parking is quite expensive but is adjacent to the premises and secure.
2. Make sure you are billed in your own currency and not Sterling as you may not be asked.
3. Charges may be made against your credit card immediately and not pre-auth.

We had a fantastic stay at the Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast. To start the breakfast was fabulous and very accommodating to suit dietary requirements (vegetarian) and special requests that were not on the menu. The concierge and receptionist staff were ever so helpful, in particular Declan and John or James at concierge and Michelle at reception. Concierge not only checked in online for our flight home providing us with a print out copy (as could only check-in 36hours prior to travel), they also provided us with a map of Belfast pointing us in the right direction of points of interest and recommendations. The rooms were spacious and offered a large bathroom which contained both a shower and bath. The hotel we very central and within walking distance of all main attractions in Belfast and situated within a few minutes walk of the bus station which offered direct aircoach to Dublin. We would definitely visit this hotel again in the future.

Beautiful hotel! The design throughout the hotel is fabulous to say the least.. The rooms are spacious and well laid out! Bathrooms are a great size.. Very funky style throughout the whole place, loved the decor! Was such a treat to stay here.. Staff are lovely! And location was great.. Only let down was that parking is ridiculously over price as is the cost of breakfast at the hotel £20 per person!!!!!

We stayed here for 1 night last weekend on a dinner and b&b package. Having stayed here before, we were looking forward to our return trip but were left feeling a little disappointed. While the staff are still as friendly and helpful as ever the hotel itself is quite tired looking and in need of some TLC. The dark black & white colour scheme interior of our room showed up every scuff and mark that needed treating. 1 of the lamps in the room didn't work and we had to ask for a new iron as the one in our room was broken. The small shelf in the bathroom isn't big enough for toiletries. The bathroom is very dark - not great lighting for putting on make up ladies!! We also only had 1 bottle of water between us both and one glass, surely in a double room there should be 2 of each? We were very disappointed to learn the restaurant is no longer ran by Kevin Thornton and the standard of food has definitely slipped as a consequence. To be honest it was no better than a good gastro pub - but still the same price as when the "celebrity chef" was there?! Service in the restaurant was slow but it was very busy and when we asked for some water we were given two small tumblers of tap water, surely very restaurant offer a jug??! overall, the stay was OK, but disappointing.

Room Tip: The corner rooms offer brilliant views of the city below with floor to ceiling windows

Staff were very friendly and welcoming, hotel was modern and luxurious and food brilliant.
Considering the location, found it to be well sound-proofed and quiet. Fantastic location for exploring Belfast and the concierge are very helpful in booking taxis/storing luggage/providing information etc.
We were there as part of a hen party and did the Cocktail Masterclass in the Penthouse, it was fantastic - great views over Belfast and well run by the staff.
Dinner in the restaurant was of a high standard and breakfast the next morning was amazing. Can help yourself to continental-style pastries, yoghurts, fruits and cereals and then order a hot breakfast from the kitchen so it's fresh. So good!
I would definitely want to stay here if I visited Belfast again. Thanks.

On arriving I made eye contact with the girl at front desk and smiled, she promptly ignored me and looked away. Our room had a few small tiles missing from the shower, the grey netting over the window was ripped and roughly sewed up, a bit shabby for 5*. When ordering a drink in the bar that night there were three bar staff on and yet it took between 10-15min to get our drink to the table. On checking out the same delightful girl was on the phone talking about a night out, she continued to do so while I stood there for a while and eventually told her friend she would call her back in 5!!!!! She was obviously annoyed with me as she made no eye contact and didn't crack a smile. Altogether a poor experience, they could learn a lot from The Merchant, now that is pure 5* !

This was our second stay in the Fitzwilliam in Belfast and both times have been lush. Each room we have had has been extremely comfortable, amazing decor, minibar,sofa, cracker views, heated mirrors to prevent steaming up and luxurious finishes to make your room perfect. The attention to detail throughout the hotel is certainly noticed, we even had a little welcome plate of treats in our room as it was a birthday trip.

We did not use the other services in the hotel due to plans being made outside of the hotel but on our next stay we will avail of the food etc. However, I did see the car valet service in use which is also a great service to those drivers.

Location is perfect for people wanting a city break or even a break to kick back and relax.

We seem to have been very lucky as on both stays the hotel had famous people also stay so you never know who you might meet :)

Minibar prices are VERY expensive, even for a bottle of water. There is a Tesco Express across from the front door of the hotel which sells everything you would need.
