A luxury hotel in Belfast packed with interior design inspiration

1/4
When you’re seeking style in spades, the 5-star Fitzwilliam Hotel in Belfast city centre is where it’s at, with design-conscious touches at every turn. Choose an Executive Room and get to know the contents of your fully stocked mini bar as soon as you arrive. Pour yourself a glass of red and relax on the soft linens and velvety cushions, in pale pink and mauve tones, on your king-size bed. You’ll also have a sleek monochrome bathroom with a spacious shower.
Treating friends or your partner? Book in for an exclusive cocktail masterclass, where a resident mixologist will teach you how to make drinks like a pro. Or why not take part in a murder mystery night for a special birthday, work do or hen party? If you’re on a weekend shopping trip, you’ll be in luck: buzzy Victoria Square is just an 11 minute walk.
Make your way to the stylish hotel bar – a hit with the locals as well as guests. Order a mint julep and relax in the 1970s-inspired space, complete with copper lighting, crystal glassware and high-back chairs. Once you’ve wet your whistle, pop over to the hotel’s AA Rosette-awarded restaurant to take advantage of a menu featuring local produce like steamed mussels, venison and duck.

Grand interiors at a luxury hotel in Belfast

1/4

The luxurious Merchant Hotel is situated in Belfast’s historic Cathedral Quarter, a trendy neighbourhood full of chic bars and quirky boutiques. After something different? This Grade A-listed building has lots of amenities to test out, from a gym with an open-air rooftop hot tub to a lively jazz bar. Once you’ve checked in, go straight to The Spa, a relaxation centre with therapeutic lighting and quality treatments using Heaven Skincare, CosMedix and Darphin products. Relieve tension with a warm bamboo massage or a detoxifying wrap, or simply relax with a herbal tea in the hydrotherapy area‘s whirlpool, rock sauna and aroma steam room.

The hotel’s Great Room Restaurant is one of Belfast’s most impressive. Its Victorian interior has a stunning glass cupola, Ireland’s biggest chandelier and a rich colour palette of gold, black and deep red. The cuisine, meanwhile, brings together top-quality ingredients from local suppliers. To really indulge, sample small plates such as seared scallops with cauliflower puree and roasted quail with orange from the à la carte menu.

When you’re ready to hit the hay, your sleek Art Deco-inspired or traditional Victorian bedroom is waiting. Snuggle up under a velvet throw and feel spoilt in a generously sized space decorated in silk curtains, bespoke furnishings and period artworks.

A luxury hotel in Belfast with a boutique feel

1/3

For a date night with a difference, base yourself at the quirky Malmaison Belfast in the city centre. (It’s conveniently located just a 4 minute walk from Victoria Square’s high-street shops and a 20 minute walk to the historic Titanic Quarter). Check in to a standard or superior double and make the most out of the roomy king-sized bed, power shower and lounge-worthy sofas. Pour yourself a gin from the dedicated minibar and relax with a glossy mag. Sleek rooms are decorated in neutral earthy tones and subtle prints like paisley and checks on walls and throws.

Make a beeline for the Malmaison Brasserie, a bright and airy space featuring cosy booths, brushed steel tables and a menu of contemporary favourites. You can sample dishes as diverse as curried tiger prawns and West Country lamb here. If it’s an extra-special occasion, sign up for the hotel’s private dining service, where the friendly Mal team will look after your every need.

Continue the fun with a cocktail from the hotel’s Malchemy drinks list, full of innovative recipes like the Bee Have, a fusion of gin and honey, or the Fletcher’s Porridge, which is filled with oats! These options are inspired by the hotel‘s sister locations across the British Isles; test out the Irish Maid with Belfast’s Bushmills whiskey for a homegrown option.

Gorgeous river views at a luxury hotel in Belfast

1/4
When you stay beside the River Lagan at the Radisson Blu Hotel Belfast, they make it easy for you with convenient services like express checkout and filling breakfasts. Go for the Grab & Run takeaway if you’re keen to catch the next shuttle bus into the city, or spend some time making your way through a buffet spread combining tasty options from North America and the Continent.
Relax at the hotel bar later on, where floor-to-ceiling windows create a sense of light and space. If you’re ready to eat, look no further than the hotel’s Gasworks restaurant. Choose from deli dishes aimed at the Millennial crowd, such as avocado wraps and superfood salads, then balance out all those healthy choices with sinfully delicious desserts like Eton Mess with heavy cream. Pair with a martini and take in the views of the plaza and water fountain from the terrace.
Ready for some shut-eye? Wind down the night in your Scandi-style room. If you’re after more space – not to mention added luxury – plump for a Junior Suite. Catch up with the papers in the separate lounge area and feel your muscles loosen up under the hot water of your power shower before snuggling into bed.

A friendly and affordable luxury hotel in Belfast

1/4
If you’re after a dose of affordable luxury, consider Dukes at Queens. Choose a Standard Room where you’ll find double beds dressed in crisp linens and iPod docking stations to play your favourite tunes. Deluxe upgrades include Nespresso machines for coffee on tap – ideal for brewing yourself a latte to go with a bubble-bath soak in your Villeroy & Boch en suite.
As well as modern rooms, this hotel has a casual restaurant and a great location that’s less than a 10 minute walk from cool boutiques and the leafy botanical gardens. If you’re staying in, make your way down to Dukes bar to pick a G&T from a range of speciality gins. The live entertainment from local bands and artists is worth catching if it’s a Friday or Saturday night.
Dukes Bistro has a range of daily, seasonal menus featuring top-notch Northern Irish produce. So whether it’s a Sunday roast with the girls, or a romantic meal with your partner, you can eat a hearty meal in the restaurant‘s low-key environment. Try dishes like baked goat’s cheese with red onion chutney and sirloin steak covered in sauteed mushrooms, then finish with a creamy pannacotta before winding down the night with a decaf coffee.

A chic and contemporary luxury hotel in Belfast

1/3

Ten Square Hotel seamlessly fuses a genuinely welcoming atmosphere with a chic boutique-inspired style – something that you’ll notice throughout. The design cues echo 1920s style, with elegant interiors in shades of black, white and grey. Mid-century modern wooden sideboards and fittings add a touch of interest. Relax in the bar on quilted benches, or head to the rooftop terrace for a crisp glass of pinot with a view of Belfast.

The hotel is steps away from City Hall – so it’s pretty central – and less than a 5 minute walk to cosy cafés and lively bars. After a day out, rest up in your Classic or Executive Room, sinking into a super-king size bed with extra-soft bedding and pillows. You’ll notice the colour scheme here is similar to the rest of the hotel, combining crisp white with soft grey and the odd pop of teal on blankets or furnishings.

Ready for dinner? Order a house special at Jospers, like a juicy steak grilled to perfection in a specialist Spanish charcoal oven for a succulent and smokey taste. If seafood or vegetarian meals are more your thing, you might be tempted by dishes like pan-fried seabass with red pepper coulis or spicy tomato and goat’s cheese gnocchi.
