We found the Merchant to be a very nice hotel. The staff at reception and most other areas of the hotel were very friendly, welcoming and accommodating.
The hotel itself has some very impressive architecture internally in the older portion of the building however we stayed in one of the more modern Deco type rooms which was very large with an equally large bathroom. The room was clean, quiet and the bed was very comfortable.
We did not use the spa though we did have a look at the gym which had an impressive set of equipment and the rooftop hot tub is a nice touch.
I have to say we found breakfast a bit disappointing and definitely style over substance.
I do think the hotel is overpriced for Belfast and wouldn't consider it value for money having stayed in superior hotels at much better rates in other cities.
All in all, though we enjoyed our stay, I don't think we would return.More
