This hotel is outstanding. From the Valet parking and reception to the night down service at the end if the night. The Art Deco twin room in 530 was amazing. Huge and so tastefully decorated. Lovely bathroom. Breakfast next morning in Great Room was opulent. Lovely silver teapot and breakfast was soooo yummy. Can't wait to go back. Amazing.

Stayed here for a night and wished it had been for more. A very warm welcome from Steven on reception who organised for our room to be made ready as quick as he could, whilst another Stephen mixed some fierce Bloody Mary's for us in the bar. The Great Room really is just that. The old banking Hall of Ulster...

This is one of the nicest and best hotels I have ever experienced. Staff are fantastic, Art Deco room was large and beautiful. The food in the bar at lunch time and in Berts in the evening was fantastic! However we paid dearly for what was a pretty poor spa experience. The spa itself is very small, there is no...

I love the Merchant and have always enjoyed great service, delicious food, beautiful surroundings and a warm, friendly welcome. My recent stay with my friends (for 2 special birthdays) was wonderful and the 2 birthday girls were given treats to their rooms and a slice of birthday cake to our dining table- a lovely touch which speaks volumes about the...

When we arrived check in was friendly and efficient but unfortunately when we asked about dining in the jazz bar we were told it was booked out as was the Great Hall. As it happened when we wondered up to the restaurant they were able to fit us in. The food was surprisingly good. Afterwards we went to the jazz...

Staff were very welcoming and helpful and above all cheerful when we needed advice. Room was very comfortable and meals in the beautiful Great Room an experience. Will definitely visit again. Great location as it was central and within walking distance from iconic sights such as City Hall and Commercial Square.

This hotel is amazing. 5 friends travelled and were celebrating a special birthday. Cars parked immediately on arrival. The Cocktail bar was so welcoming and cosy for lunch with a beautiful open fire and wonderful food & drinks. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Especially Jamil & James who could not do enough! Art Deco rooms so spacious...
