“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 3 March 2010

I would recommend this hotel to everybody. It was amazing. We did not want to go home. Everyone was very friendly (except the bar staff :( ) The rooms were fab. Great value for money.

My wife and I were very impressed with our two-nght stay at the Fitzwilliam. The staff were welcoming and very helpful. We arrived well before noon after an early morning flight from Edinburgh, and were able to check-in right away. My wife had flown into the UK from Canada just two days earlier --and appreciated the opportunity to catch up on her sleep that first day. We enjoyed dinner at the restaurant as well as our daily breakfasts. Highly recommended as the place to stay in Belfast.

We were both very much looking forward to returning to Belfast and staying at the Fitzwilliam. We were made very welcome and were very impressed with the hotel decor and ambience. Lunch in the bar was very nice, staff were efficient and cordial. Our room was art deco, bright and welcoming and very comfortable. All normal factilites available apart from the white bath robes (which I thought were a norm) had to be requested from reception!. We decided on check-in to dine in the restaurant. We were heading to the Odessy for 7pm and checked that our 5.30pm would allow us sufficient time. We arrived at the restaurant at 5.30pm exactly, we were the first. We were asked if we would like breads with some olive oil, we declined. When we looked at the menu we would have been charged £4 for this. In all other top restaurants we have been to, this is normally free. We chose the A la Carte . We were told the starters would take 6-8 minutes which we were ok with but our mains arrived at 6.30pm. We had told the waitresses of our 7pm appointment. The food, well presented but bland, at those prices and with Kevin Thornton's reputation, we had high expectations. Side of vegetables does not conjour up aubergine, courgette, onion and tomatoes - horrendous and at £4 per little bowl. In addition, our bottle of wine disappeared out of sight to the ice bucket once we got our first glass. We stared at our glasses on 2 occasions - they were empty! I asked for the remaining wine to be sent to our room. They definitely expected us to drink it direct, hot and from the bottle - no ice bucket or glasses. There were 4 waiting staff on duty when we arrived but they were doing anything apart from taking care of their guests. Why else would you dine at 5.30pm unless you had another engagement. Overall, we found the food service poor and expensive (Cooked breakfast at £18 - saw it and it looked nothing extra for that price!) for what we received. We would recommend staying at the hotel but go to The Europa next door for dinner or Victoria Square.

I booked this hotel via Laterooms and a three night stay cost £212. Breakfast was on top but well worth paying for as all was freshly cooked. The interior,modern by design but not minimalist gave a feeling of stepping into luxury.
The bar serves the best cocktails and the staff are lovely.
The bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms are too.
A nice touch in the bedrooms was the fresh coffee and cafitierre(a welcome change from the usual sachets of instant)

I booked this hotel at the last minute, without having read any reviews and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms were big and airy which is unusual for a city centre hotel. The bed was the most comfortable I have slept in in a long time, the bathrooms are really big with a separate bath and shower. The staff are very helpful and the food in the restaurant is exclellent.

Have just come back from Fitzwilliam Hotel. We booked a standard room for 2 nights. Check in was fine, receptions extremely friendly, room was lovely, big and spacious. We went out for a walk, great location, situated between Jurys and Europa and only a walk away from all the shops. When we got back, there was a note put under the door telling us that there was going to be be building work going on at 8am the next morning, wasnt impressed with that, thought they should have told me when i was at reception. Anyway, went out and had a few drinks and a nice meal, next morning as promised the building work started, so that was us awake for the duration. Anyway, when we went down the next morning, I mentioned it to the receptionist, told her we were away for the first time in 3 years on our own and wanted to be able to have a lie on. The girl was so helpful and seemed to totally understand where I was coming from. She apologised and agreed a note shouldnt have been put under the door, anyway, she upgraded us to the most beautiful suite right next to the penthouse. Have to say it made our weekend, it was georgous, huge room, so relaxing. The shower was built for 2 or 3!! Anyway had a meal that night in the restaurant, i got quail, followed by venison and my husband got the pumpkin soup and steak, it was one of the best meals we have had in years. The waiter, a new zealand guy was extremely friendly and was able to talk knowledgly about everything on the meunu without being over the top. Anyway, im rambling now a bit, before we had kids we travelled a lot and stayed in some beautiful hotels and this is up there at the top!! Would go again in a flash and would recommend it to anyone.

stayed here for two nights at the weekend. Had previously contacted hotel to confirm our late arrival and confirm a pre booked car parking space. On arrival there was no car parking space for us and we offered a space to park in the loading bay but were told we would have to get up early on saturday morning to move the car - hardly what you would call valet parking!! the lady who checked us in was very helpful and friendly giving full information on dining options and breakfast the next morning. Our room was on the 5th floor and was very impressive although as previous reviewers have mentioned very warm and it did take a long time for the room to cool down when the air conditioning was adjusted. I was very disappointed with water pressure in the showers - my power shower at home is easily twice as powerful and on the saturday night we both had to shower with lukewarm water - again very disappointing for a 5 star hotel.
Breakfast room was lovely and we were quickly seated and tea and coffee brought to our table. The continental breakfast on offer was very poor for a hotel of this standard and on sunday morning was very slow at being replenished. The cooked menu was extensive and the quality of food was very good and served quickly. Check out was fairly quick and again reception staff were helpful. We did have to wait in the pouring rain for around 10 minutes on the concierge to bring our car round to the front of the hotel as they had forgot we were waiting!!!

Bar service was excellant although floor staff were very slow at clearing tables and we had to ask for the table to be cleaned on two occasions when other guests had left.

Overall we had a lovely stay but i feel that had i paid full rate for this hotel then i would have been very disappointed. Would i go back - only if i got a really good deal - you can certainly get better service at other hotels in the city and at a much cheaper rate.
