Belfast's Fitzwilliam Hotel Scores Five Star Rating
One of Belfast's top hotels, The Fitzwilliam, is celebrating becoming Northern Ireland's newest five star property.
The hotel, located on Great Victoria Street, was awarded the top rating under the Tourism NI accommodation grading scheme following the completion of £2 million refurbishments and approval on planning permission for a £6million extension which will bring extra rooms and a rooftop terrace, reports belfastlive.co.uk.
"Since opening in 2009 the Fitzwilliam Hotel has quickly established itself as the premier hotel in the city which has been in part due to our exceptional location, the quality of our product and the levels of professional service from our team," said hotel General Manager, Cian Landers, adding that the rating is "down to the hard work and dedication from each and every member of staff".
Landers added: "With a continued increase in demand spurred by the growing number of visitors to Belfast, there is a need to increase the stock of premium hotel rooms that are relevant for the international traveler and local visitors alike. That is why we have undertaken refurbishments and will be progressing with plans to extend the hotel."
