We recently stayed for one night after getting married at the Merchant the year before. Such a fantastic experience from start to finish! We had a personalised letter congratulating us on our anniversary and complimentary truffles. Then up to the roof top hot tub with prosecco and panoramic view of Belfast, just incredible. We then went for cocktails and had...

You must stay here at least once in your lifetime and if you come once, you will come again. I love the art deco rooms - so much style and space. victoriana is a bit over the top for me but the rooms are still luxuriously lovely. the dining room for breakfast is spectacular and the food and service lives...

From arrival to departure could not jhave received any better treatment and any queries were met with most helpful positive responses. Good food, wonderful surroundings with personnel who are good ambassadors for not only The Merchant but the...

Just home from a lovely overnight stay in The Merchant Hotel, to say we were treated like royalty would be an understatement...nothing was too much trouble, we were warmly welcomed and very well looked after throughout our stay! We were shown to our Art Deco bedroom by Peter who was very friendly and helpful, and our room was very comfortable,...

Save for the occasional, distant church bell, which was hardly noticeable, the Merchant Hotel was an extremely quiet oasis. Art Deco touches with modern comfort, including very efficient, quiet air conditioning, add to the comfort and elegance. Great rooftop gym with sauna overlooking the city and outdoor jacuzzi viewing the Leaning Tower. Breakfast in the The Great Room is a...
