The Fitzwilliam Hotel Belfast

Anyone who has visited the Fitzwilliam Hotel on St Stephen’s Green in Dublin will feel at home right away at this five star hotel beside the Grand Opera House in Belfast city centre. You’ll find the trademark chic Fitzwilliam modern classic style and great attention to detail throughout. 


It’s an enviable location, and the hotel impresses from the outset with its friendly concierge (valet parking) and the understatedly sumptuous foyer. Designed to look and feel like a (very classy) living-room, it has an aura of calmness and serenity, with comfortable contemporary leather chairs where you can relax while watching the passing street parade through the floor to ceiling windows.


Offering comfort and style, this Belfast Hotels foyer sets the tone for the remainder of the building – and who could fail to be impressed by the glass walled boardroom suspended above it?


Public areas include a stylish and friendly bar that (as in Dublin) is firmly established as a fashionable meeting place for lunch or a drink after work or shopping – helped by the central location, near the famous Crown Bar Liquor Saloon (owned by the National Trust) and only a couple of minutes walk from the main shopping and business areas. Be prepared to spend time perusing a drinks list offering 700 spirits and liquors – where, happily, even the best bubbly is available by the glass.


Modern and design-led, an air of relaxation prevails in the bedrooms, where comfort is the order of the day. With luxurious beds (Egyptian cotton sheets, duck down duvets), plenty of nice little extras (fresh flowers, VOSS mineral water, Fitzwilliam umbrella, complimentary newspaper), and sumptuous bathrooms with separate bath and shower, mist-free mirrors, quality toiletries, robes and slippers, your room will be hard to leave - especially if you’re lucky enough to get a corner room, with windows on two sides overlooking the city.


And, with in-room amenities including desk, laptop size safe, broadband access (free), great hair dryers, iron/ironing board, coffee/tea/mini-bar bar unit with cafetière for fresh coffee, sound system with CD library, LCD TV and electronic checkout, the rooms are equally suited to business or leisure guests.


 


Conference/banqueting (3 rooms) 55/20; business centre; free broadband wi/fi. Fitness suite. Children welcome, cots available on request (no charge).


Rooms 130 (6 junior suites, 106 executive, 7 disabled; all with separate bath & shower and no-smoking.) Room rate from about £120. Lift. 24 hr room service. Valet Parking. Open all year.


The Restaurant


You can take the lift from the foyer but there is also a separate street entrance to the first floor dining room, which is undoubtedly the pièce de resistance of the hotel.


An accessibly priced all day restaurant, it offers (a particularly good) breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner, in an informal atmosphere.


The surroundings are the essence of casual chic - communal lightwood tables sparkling with polished glassware have runners and striking deep pink high-back chairs, while subdued lighting makes the booths along the walls perfect for intimate dinners - and the emphasis is on simple quality food, at affordable prices.


Pleasing surroundings, good cooking and slick service make this a popular dining destination for non residents as well as guests staying in the hotel.

2 euro Denotes genuine Irish food culture, ie special Irish food products/companies/producers, and highlights the best places to shop for regional and artisan foods; the selection excludes obvious 'non-Irish' elements regardless of quality, eg ethnic restaurants and specialists in coffee, wine and other drinks, unless relevant to local production or history. Eat & Stay establishments are chosen for their commitment to showcasing local produce and Irish hospitality. Outstanding Location, building or atmosphere Previous Georgina Campbell Guides Award Winner The "Best of the Best" - Only the very best establishments across various categories have been chosen for this accolade

This small hotel is in a choice corner location overlooking Belfast Lough and Bangor Marina, and offers contemporary style - together with the hands-on hospitality that is not easy to find in larger establishments. It’s a pleasant place to stay and not only handy ...
