Absolutely fabulous in every way.

Disappointed but great bar
I have stayed at The Merchant on several occasions and have always been very pleased. On this occasion I had booked a double room as it was a valentines getaway. I was very disappointed that we were placed in a twin room and when I rang the front desk to complain I got no answer. We were placed in one of the Victorian rooms (317) which looked a bit tired and could do with a freshen up. The cocktail bar was fantastic and the breakfast was also very good. I am undecided if I will return as there are several other good places to stay in Belfast.

Christmas present
This wasa Christmas present to my daughter and her husband while here for Christmas from Spain. When my daughter and her husband visit they would normally have an overnight stay in Belfast and she has said on several occasions that she would love to stay in the Merchant and it didnt disappoint.
