“Fab room. Everything you need.”
Reviewed 6 August 2012 via mobile

Stayed here for four nights and it was great. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff were all friendly. The bedrooms were luxurious and everywhere was immaculately clean. Hotel is within walking distance of all major attractions. Would definitely go again.

My wife and I have stayed at the Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast on the weekend of 27th-29th July. We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel and if we are lucky enough to return to Belfast in the future, we will now automatically book the Fitzwilliam.
The reasons why we enjoyed the hotel:
Great location, Pleasant staff, Good value for money, nice rooms (bed was incredibly comfy), good hotel to relax, clean hotel, we didn't require anything else as it ticked all the buttons for our weekend trip. The hotel bar is also a very good spot to relax. We had been sightseeing during the days we were there, so we wanted a relaxed environment to enjoy a few drinks, have bite to eat and chill out. We could do all of this in the hotel bar, fantastic addition to the hotel. I would also like to recommend the bar staff, all very courteous and my wife tried a few of the cocktails and said they were all superb. Also, I would like to say thanks to reception as although we were not due to check-in until 3pm, a room was made available to us at 12-30.
So all in all, thanks to the Fitzwilliam hotel for a great weekend and I would definitely recommend this hotel and we will stay here the next time we return to the city.

Our second stay at the Fitz in 3 years. Into an unchanged reception area, smiles and speedy, efficient check in. To the fifth floor and a lovely, spacious, comfortable room with a decent view of the Jury's opposite and the city beyond. The bathroom had both bath and a large raindrop shower. No need for an engineering degree to operate this equipment. A nice touch was the smallish area of the mirror that didn't mist up after the shower was used. We appreciate that this can't be cheap but could it be a little larger to accommodate all heights rather than the average as we found it?

Downstairs again - in the seating area the FT & local papers were readily available and a range of books was displayed. Outside, the Grand Opera House was next door and across the road the institution that is the Crown Liquor Saloon or Bar. A visit here is mandatory; the place is a throwback to the 1930s. The beer was good and the clientele friendly. Sadly, they'd stopped selling baseball caps & t-shirts. Shame on them!

10 minutes to the City Centre and on to the Cathedral Quarter. Back in the Fitzwilliam and the welcoming bar; they served good snack food and decent wine & cocktails at acceptable prices.
The only poor piece of service happened here on Monday (30 July); two barmen on duty and the experienced guy went to make love to the bar computer leaving the 3 day man to cope with several orders including our Rusty Nail. We passed on some advice to the older guy as we left the bar!

There were lots of bars and reataurants in the immediate area; we tried South James Street but but were told we needed reservations as it was fully booked. This was disproved about 90 minutes later when a glance through the window revealed more empty seats than at the Olympics. Avoid!

So it was over the road to Irene & Nan's. We were not put off by our first impression; a little attention was needed. The food, wine and service were all impeccable and represented very good value for money.

Our Fitzwilliam room had more than sufficient wardrobe space, a good TV, iron & ironing board, safe, CD player and a mini bar. The aircon was discreet and although some street noise reached us, it was not intrusive.

Our final morning and under the door was a fully itemised - and totally accurate - bill. Checkout was smooth and our luggage was stored for us via the Concierge who later handled our taxi transfer with professional aplomb.

We're happy to recommend the Fitzwilliam as a good base for enjoying Belfast. We will be back, soon.

Room Tip: The fifth floor suited us nicely.

The Fitzwilliam is similar to some of the high-end contemporary / boutiquey versions of well known 4-5 star hotels that have sprung up in London over the last few years; only the Fitz has way more character and doesn't make you haemorrhage money.

Everything was top knotch; friendly greeting at reception, large comfortable room, huge bed, free wi-fi, great housekeeping. The location is great too. I can't remember exactly how much we paid, but it was a fairly modest amount and the Fitz definately over-delivered against expectations.

The highlight for us was the (family friendly) cocktail bar. We came to Belfast mainly for the Titanic exhibition but if anything's going to make us return, it's what mixologist Jonathan has up his sleeve for Manhattans / old fashioneds!

Nice new Hotel in central Belfast, but I found the room was very small and despite their best efforts, they couldn't get the Air Conditioning to work (well they could, but only blowing out hot air!).
Decor was nice, but shower and bath arrangements were let down by poor water pressure (half hour run time for a bath).
Staff were very friendly and helpful though.

Room Tip: Avoid room 301

I arrived at half past midnight after a long hard day, an obligatory work dinner and probably one too many glasses of red wine. There was no booking for me as the travel agency had messed up. The staff on the counter were immensely helpful and after some bustling around (I wasn't sure they were 100% sure how to resolve the situation - they seemed very young and a bit green to be on the counter at nearly 1am), they managed to get me into the last room. Thanks chaps.

The room was really lovely and I am sorry I wasn't staying longer to enjoy it. I was up at 6am, enjoyed the lovely coffee in my room (very decent quality), ironed my clothes (didnt need to ask for an iron), blow dried my hair (at last a hairdryer in a hotel that wasnt designed for a baldie with a combover). I then went to the 1st floor and had a great breakfast. I found the waiting staff to be attentive without being annoying (especially at that time of the morning!) and the range of food on offer as part of the continental deal was varied, fresh and delicious.

Standard room booked.

Good points:-
Comfortable bed,
Spacious bathroom with walk in shower with seperate bath,
Clean and well maintained room,
Quiet room with little or no road noise (might have to request this on booking),
Bathrobes (on request),
Good selection of tea, instant coffee and ground coffee in room tray.

Bad points:-
Bathrobes - one size fits all!
Don't think so, unless you are under 5'5" and thin (mental note - now I know why the receptionist smiled when I requested a set).

Overall a lovely hotel in a central location providing much needed rest and luxury.

Room Tip: Request quiet room away from main road if view not important, or room on upper floors. If bathrobe...
