The Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast
Ranked #3 of 45 Hotels in Belfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 2, 2010

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Fitzwilliam over the Valentines weekend and absolutely loved it! We stayed in a superior king room and were amazed at how big the room was! We couldn't fault the quality or the decor, which was very nice! I have never stayed in a hotel with such an unusual style, and i loved it!

We had dinner in the bar downstairs and weren't really impressed with the service; the barman walked past me 4 or 5 times before actually acknowledging me, which I could understand if it was really busy, but at this time the bar wasn't. However, the waitressing service more than made up for this, they couldn't have been more helpful and were very quick with drinks orders.

We had to stay for 6nights,otherwise we would have moved. Terrible lack of staff training and no managers around until several complaints were lodged by other members of the group. Rooms unmade at 5.30pm .Shortage of towels, even though they mention them in their ads. Gym, not as described. No water, dirty towels on the floor. Noisy, uncomfortable dining room. Poor service, terrible breakfast buffet that was not replenished all the time..
Bathroom had one small shelf for toiletries.Only 2 drawers for clothing and they were at floor level. Very dark corridors. Designer chic gone mad !! Do they ever stay in the hotels they design?

i am a frequent traveller to Belfast and this was the first time i had stayed at the Fitzwillliam. I remember passing it on open top bus tour of Belfast when i was over last September and thinking `gosh that looks lovely - i could never afford to stay there'. Well , low and behold, when i was arranging my recent trip i was surfing hotels in Belfast and clicked on a `mystery hotel' which had an offer on - you dont actually see what hotel it is until you pay for it. I clicked on it and , guess what ? i got the Fitzwilliam. I was not disapointed , From moment i booked in till moment i left they could not have been more helpful - the reception. breakfast staff, night staff......everyone !! Big thankls to Amy for sorting out my wine on the sat night when i couldnt get the cork out the bottle !!!(no laffing at the back now) My friend came down on the sat night and she was very impressed . I am already arranging my next visit over to Belfast later this year and will certainly be staying at the Fitzwilliam. My one, and only, moan - cost of breakfast very very expensive - mind u it does set you up for the day.

Truly fantastic hotel with great rooms, spotlessly clean, ultra smooth service, fantastic breakfast, ultra smooth bar, great design and a cracking restaurant by any standard and certainly well above the standard of most hotel restaurants included in what is probably the best hotel I've stayed at in all of the UK. Location is great close by some fantastic restaurants within literally 1 minute walk - James St South and Deanes.

We stayed here for a weekend trip to Belfast and I can honestly stay it was one of the best, hotels we have stayed in. We were met at our taxi and bags taken to room. Check in was friendly and fast. The room was gorgeous with a spotless bathroom, large room, wine in fridge, music player, huge window overlooking belfast, very comfy bed, just perfect . The room service was excellent, the burger was special! We also ate in the restaurant which is lovely and the food quality is second to none. Its a very design conscience hotel and the lobby is very stylish. Tips - eat at St James street south, or Cayenne (michellin Bib Gormand award) both were ridiculosly good. Shopping is only a 5 min walk away and the hotel is a 7 pound taxi ride from the airport.
Will def be coming back.

The hotel was very pleasant and the Concierge took care of my car immediately. While there were road works immediately outside the hotel but their noise did not intrude in to the hotel itself. Check in was very prompt and courteous with that beautiful Ulster charm effortlessly offered. The room was lovely, modern, colour pastel green on black and clean. I was out for the evening and returned to find the bed turned down and the curtains drawn. I had to leave before breakfast at 7 a.m. Checkout was efficient and effective.

Stayed at the Fitzwilliam easy access to all the shoping areas and concerts. Parking was just across the road. Had a lovley room overlooking the city . The bedroom was modern and the bathroom had separate shower and bath.However the room was very warm and the air condition wasnt cool enough. All areas of the hotel was very warm. There was no body lotion in the bathroom just shampoo conditioner and shower gel.You had to ask for a bathrobe and slippers which for a 5 star should be in the room.I would prefer the Merchant Hotel as it has the little extras which make it special. I think it is more for a younger age group as the decor is funky and trendy.
