“Beautiful hotel, will def be back!”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I stayed here recently with my boyfriend for his birthday! The staff were v friendly and the room was beautiful! We got a deluxe room with great views and a brill bathroom! Everything was v clean, we didnt eat here but thought we would try some cocktails in the bar that night! The bar was very crowded but the bar man gave us a sample drink for having to wait! The cocktails were amazing and not over priced! All the ingredients were fresh, only draw back was I thought breakfast sounded very overpriced!
Will def try this hotel again! Excellent location and it should be the number one hotel in Belfast!

my boyfriend and I had missed
our train so shortly after 12am we went to the fitzwilliam.
We had been excited to go in as we had planned to go here on our anniversary but after that experience we wont be back. Most hotels offer a discounted price when u check in so late but no... £109 for a basic small viewless room and no breakfast. The receptionist was not a bit friendly she actually appeared
to look down on us! not 5* service!

I have to say i love the decor of this hotel and the dark corridors but this is the only thing i loved. the room was like a sauna.. we couldnt even sit in it never mind sleep.
Of course when we phoned reception about this and the internet not working she said nothing could be done til morning... which was useless considering we were only staying one night. God
forbid she would have to get up off
her seat for 5mins.

i ended up lying awake on the sofa the whole night while my boyfriend tossed and turned.
On checkout we brought the issue up with the receptionist but she didn't even acknowledge the fact that we spoke.
There is no exaggeration in this story as i am sure you will find out.
Whoever rated this hotel must have had a put on show for the night as it is not 5*


We ended up at the malmaison for our anniversary!

Surprised at the poor reviews....I loved this hotel. Room was clean, bed was super-comfy, decent iron in the room, well laid-out, spacious, nice bathroom (although agree about the lack of toiletry space!), wifi was straightforward. Very happy would definitely return.

Very grand entrance and reception. Check-in was fine. Our room was on the 8th floor, so suffured no noise problems. Bar staff were fantastic!! The bar is really popular all day long.

Really nice rooms, good to have a bath and a shower, plenty of towels and hangers.

Our only gripes were,
1 - (although, prob our own fault) it advertises that there is an i-pod player, I presumed that ment you could charge it also. But there was no charger, I asked the concierge, and he said they only had one, and they didnt know when it was coming back, and maybe it was best to buy one.

2 - I wanted to get my wife a balloon taken to the restaurant we were going to celebrate her 40th birthday, but wanted to do it in secret, so asket the concierge for help orgainising the getting and delivering of the balloon, again, no help. If it had nothing to do with the hotel directly, he cant do anything???????????

3 -- I know mini-bars are known to be expensive, but that one takes the mick!

Apart from that it was fine. There are other hotels just as good at a better rate though I thought.

Room Tip: Any rooms at the front or on the corner will be quite noisy

Good location for city hotel, easy walking to all amenities. Reception was busy upon arrival, though staff were very efficient. Bedrooms just perfect and very well designed. Great friendly staff both in restaurant and bar, food excellent, best food quality breakfast we have experienced in a long time. Well done to Gareth the Restaurant Manager and his team. We will be back!

Room Tip: Go for a high floor less traffic noise.

Review for Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast -- 4th Floor Room.

Pros:
- Good Location for walking around Central Belfast

Cons:
- Check-in was slow and inefficient -- too many people checking in/checking out and not enough front desk staff
- Bathroom Shower had black mold around the base and on the walls.
- Bathroom wall was missing a couple tiles.
- Very limited counter space for bath toiletries.
- Room had stained carpet in a number of different areas.
- Thin walls -- could hear the TV in the adjacent room.
- No clock in the room.
- Business Center printer did not work until I fixed it, and then it was out of ink.
- We checked our luggage with the Concierge, and upon return were asked to identify and retrieve it ourselves.


Conclusion:
- Would not stay here again.
