Wonderful seats besides the musical ensemble. Very attentive staff and excellent afternoon tea. Coffee was a little strong and after an hour of eating could have done with being freshened up, but only a minor issue and if I asked I sure it would have been sorted. We then enjoyed cocktails. Still the best hotel in town.

My wife and I stayed in the Merchant last night on a bed breakfast and dinner basis and what a great experience we had from the receptionist on arrival who shook our hands then the porter who took us to our art deco room on the 4th floor which was very spacious with a huge bathroom
and a very comfortable bed. We had dinner in the state room which was brilliant the waiter was very helpful in recommending several of the dishes. Breakfast was served at the table and once again brilliant. The management most take credit for training the staff to a very high standard well done the Merchant Hotel we will return

I recently stayed at The Merchant Hotel on a business trip. I had been told it was the best hotel in Europe but I was sceptical until I arrived. It is definitely the best hotel I've stayed at. From the minute I arrived to my departure the service was friendly and impeccable. I have never quite stayed in a room so large and the bathroom was magnificent. All the staff were very friendly and both the service and food were excellent. The hotel is also in a great location especially if going out in the Cathedral Quarter. I will most definitely be going back - this time on a personal trip and I'm looking forward to going to the Spa this time.

We stayed at the Merchant Hotel for a few days and we all had a super experience. From the welcome on arrival to the best wishes on departure our stay was first class. All the staff that served us were very professional and the surroundings were stunning. We will definately return and stay the next time we visit Belfast. One point, The Merchant Hotel is not the least expensive in Belfast, however it is certainly one of the best.
