"Great place, Wonderful Spa"
My Wife and I stayed here for our second wedding anniversary on Monday August 28th, you can tell just from entering you are in a class above everything else, the hotel is huge, has amazing décor and the staff are all very friendly and couldn't do enough for us, we stayed in room 212 which was very spacious (especially the extra large bathroom and bathtub), and a nice surprise for us was to walk into the room that evening to find a balloon, a card and some chocolates, little things like this really do matter.
As we were treating ourselves we decided to book each other a full body massage in their Spa, now I have had quite a few massages before in other 5 star resorts but this was by far the best I have ever had, my therapist Emma was excellent and I told her I would be mentioning her by name on this review as she deserves to be recognised by the hotel for her dedication, we will be returning to the spa without a doubt even if not staying the night in the merchant
We didn't have dinner in the Merchant but had breakfast and it was once again delivered with a smile and was fantastic, I had the omelette and my wife had the fry and there were no complaints about either. All in all we had a lovely stay in the Merchant, its a little more expensive than most places in Belfast but it is the only 5 star hotel in Belfast, I would definitely recommend a stay here and would urge you to give the Spa a try.
