From the moment we arrived at the hotel everything was top class. The concierge was very nice and so helpful. Our Art Deco room was stunning. We had two meals one in berts and the great room both were equally lovely. Cocktails out of this world and the barman was very nice. Location is unbeatable right beside everything. The only thing that I didn't like was that you had to pay £20 pound a night for parking but that won't stop me from returning. We also missed the opportunity to do afternoon as it was booked out. Hoping to return at christmas time for the christmas markets and to sample the festival afternoon tea at the hotel. The merchant hotel was just top class easily the best hotel I have stayed in. Even the little touches were so nice such as when we were leaving and the concierge brought my car back they had left a little packet of sweets in the car! 5 ⭐️ All the way!!! Thanks guys

As a native of Belfast I had very high expectations of the Merchant as it is the only 5 star hotel. I organised a dinner party in one of the private rooms for around 20 people. Whilst those who stayed rated the actual accommodation highly , the food was not even mediocre and the service could only be described as dire ! Fish was cold and undercooked and we waited over an hour for ice ! Would not recommend for food nor service .... Go to the Europa or Culloden !

This place is very nice. I stayed one night on a deal I got through another website. I definitely would not pay over £200 a night to stay here. The breakfast was nice and the staff in the Great Room were very good. The bed was very comfortable. The main thing that got to me was that when I came to check in the reception staff told me to take a seat and they would call me over. I waited about 20 minutes whilst they checked in several people who arrived after me. This annoyed me and I had to go over myself and ask to be checked in and the staff never even acknowledge the fact that they had made me wait and forgot about me. Iv had better service in rural towns in the back end of the USA in comparison to this.

Stayed for our wedding night.
Amazed by the interior styles, though it can be very difficult to find your way around the maze of corridors.
The front desk staff were pleasant, though the attitude of some of the staff in the great room and bar leave a lot to be desired.

We stayed in the suite, which was beautiful. However the noise from the clubs on the same street vibrates through the walls until well after midnight (I suspect as a listing building it isn't possible to sound proof).

Recently stayed at the merchant hotel , hotel is lovely , staff very friendly , rooms lovely and breakfast was excellent , would defiantly recommend this hotel . We tried the cocktails and although they were very nice I thought they were a little over priced at almost £22 for 2 with service charge included in that , girl working in the cocktail bar was lovely very pleasant .

Room Tip: We had room 532 room was lovely but did not have a good view .
