We have been to the Fitzwilliam a few times but on this occasion we found the room a bit shabby and not to the usual standards that we would expect from the Fitzwilliam. The restaurant and cocktails were fantastic and the hotels location is perfect.

Hotel's Favorite
This is my second time staying in the fitzwilliam , in the early days they were finding their feet as you would say and boy they have done this well , the staff are so switched on , nothing is a problem even the hall porter with the eccentric moustache is a star of the foyer . Our room was large with a lovely art deco feel everything there that you require to have a enjoyable time down to an umbrella the two seater was a little hard but sure the bed made up for it giving us a lovely sleep , everything was so clean even the shower and bath perfect and believe me I’ve seen them all . I love the dark corridor spooky but Victorian feel as you approach the lifts again a speedy lift with clean buttons . The restaurant was lovely very oriental looking but with a lovely host James , needs a hoover now and again but still nice , my food was ok, my steak was slightly over cooked but I ate it and said nothing , the cocktail was nice too as was the price , a cheeky 12 % service charge was added but sure it saved me hoking out some cash for the tip . Breakfast was delivered to our room on time and hot we got one butter between the two of us but the girl quickly delivered more , breakfast again was good , potato bread was just ok but the rest was lovely (£56) Altogether this hotel has settled into the Belfast city as good as the most bombed hotel just up the street and it is 5 starred too , definitely a treat to stay , but if you want looked after this is the hotel bang smack in the middle of Belfast ps if you say to the porter he’ll get you discount on your overnight parking across the street .

A stunning hotel that has everything you need and will do everything to ensure your comfort/satisfaction. You are looked after from the moment you enter. Rooms are modern, comfortable and have great views over the city. We stayed in a Junior Suite and it was simply stunning. The valet service was superb on arrival/departure. We will definitely be back!

The bed was comfortable, the bathroom spacious and plenty of towels, robes and slippers. No usb charging points so take an adapter as well as your cable. I personally found the room very dark and gloomy but we were only staying overnight anyway. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food in the bar was very tasty, even the nibbles with late night drinks were decent quality. The lobby seating area was pretty cold so take something warm. We went for a performances at the Grand Opera House and it couldn’t have been more convenient, really just steps away, you could mak a dash for it if you didn’t want to take your coat. I am a light sleeper so I didn’t sleep so well with the sound of road sweepers/bin lorries on the main road in the early hours but once the work traffic started it was actually surprisingly quieter. There was less noise than I expected from revellers given it’s on a main night life road and little from ambulances so close to the Royal hospital. It is in the city so I did expect noise.

Terrible experience. We stayed 3 nights in a family room. This room was not suitable for children. The room is very small with no room to walk. The kids bed was an uncomfortable pull out sofa with hard and sharp metal edges. My kids were cut up and bruised hourly from this bed and things in the room. Every table top has glass on top of it. There was so much stuff in the room (espresso machine, hot water maker, plates, 6 glass cups, spoons, etc) that there is no room to put any of your own stuff. There is no counter or shelf space in the bathroom other than a very tiny glass shelf over the sink. The sink is high and cannot be reached by children, we had to move the one chair in the room into the bathroom so our kids could wash their hands. There are only 2 outlets in the entire room to charge phones (not near the bed)! Whoever designated this as a family room does not have children. This room is dangerous for kids. We attempted to go to the restaurant at 530pm and were turned away being told they were fully booked for the night. We tried to eat at the bar and also told there was no space. Mind you this was in February! Room service is 10 pounds for delivery and then you run into the problem of having no space in your room to eat due to all the unneeded junk they put in your room. We sat on the floor behind the bed to eat. Terrible. We booked the hotel on their own website after making a Preferred Hotels account. We tried to change our stay from 3 nights to 2 and were told that because we used the Preferred Hotels Promo Code we would be changed an extra 100 pounds if we stayed one night less. Concierge was very nice and helpful. This place is a joke, stay away.

Dear DrJay85, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at The Fitzwilliam Hotel. I read your review with a heavy heart and wish you to know that I am deeply sorry to know that you returned home so disappointed with your experience. I am truly sorry that on this occasion we failed to meet your expectations in so many ways. Please know that the duty manager would have been more than happy to offer a room move or at least show you some room options; we want all our guests to feel comfortable and for the room to meet their needs. We are in the unique position of having a large variety of rooms and suites that vary in size, aspect, and layout, so we feel sure we would have found a room you would have liked. We understand your decision not to stay with us again, but we hope you might reconsider in the future. We genuinely value your input, and we'll use it to enhance our services for future guests. If you do wish to give us another, try, please email me directly at trenner@fitzwilliamhotelbelfast.com. and I will personally oversee your stay and make sure you receive the true Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast experience. Warm Regards, Trisha Guest Experience Manager

Daughter had bought package for myself at Christmas.When we arrived in room wasn't wowed mini bar had water and bedend all scratched up. We went to reception and said abt minibar they said they put some complementary items in 2 small wine and popcorn. Went for 2 course meal which was enjoyed small portions ordered dessert and we had still water was told dessert £10 each went to pay it was £26.50 was charged £6.50 for a bottle of water. Found all staff unwelcoming any request seemed a bother. TV meant to have all these channels we had 10. We didn't sleep at all room stuffy. Went for breakfast daughter ordered full fry was asked did she want beans came without beans I ordered eggs benedict small portion was asked would I like sausage or bacon on side I said bacon please came without had yo ask for bacon. I really don't think are room 5 star or our stay 5 stars

We have absolutely loved our stay! The wonderful staff helped us arrange some fabulous dinners and tours. The room is so wonderful - with the most amazing towels, robes and tub to soak in (complete with candlelight). The little details make everything even more special - we especially love the chocolates! I would definitely stay again.
