There’s something about the Fitzwilliam Hotel in Belfast that screams elegance.
From the perfectly formed letters on the hotel’s sign, right down to the fluffy white bathrobes in the rooms - you know a night here is one you won’t forget.
Nestled in the heart of Belfast’s bustling Great Victoria Street the Fitzwilliam Hotel is the perfect location for a quiet weekend or a few days of shopping.
Across the street you’ll find Belfast’s most famous pub ‘The Crown’ if you fancy a quiet pint of Guinness or The Washington if you’d like to see a bit more nightlife.
We arrived just after 5pm and immediately checked into our gorgeous room on the seventh floor which came with an enormous bathroom fitted with power shower and deep bath.
Inside the closet were fluffy white bathrobes, perfect after an afternoon of relaxing in the tub. As we were travelling with our daughter the hotel arranged a small bed for her in the room while we had a king size bed exquisitely decorated in cool colours of yellow, white and black.
All rooms have tea and coffee facilities, as well as a mini bar in case you get thirsty.
Afternoon drinks can be consumed in the relaxing surroundings of the hotel bar where all drinks are served with a tier of nuts.
Dining at the Fitzwilliam Hotel is an unforgettable.
From the moment the cool white wine is poured into the large stylish wine glasses you know you’re in for a treat.
And the menu didn’t fail to impress either. Even the little people’s menu has been given that special touch by speciality chef Kevin Thornton.
Choose from a wide range of dishes including fish, chicken steaks and even rabbit.
But for me what made the dinner all the more special was the range of breads and tapinades on offer. Make sure your try the curry bread - it has a certain kick.
Next morning we were up early ready to tuck into the Fitzwilliam fry up which included bacon, Portobello mushrooms and sausage.
But if you’re not a fry person you can either opt for a continental breakfast, kippers or even pancakes.
