Fitzwilliam Hotel takes five-star status

By Margaret Canning

Belfast's Fitzwilliam Hotel has said it's reached a major milestone as it receives a five-star rating.

The Great Victoria Street venue has now had its luxury status validated by the AA, following an earlier accreditation from Tourism NI.

It joins the Merchant Hotel as one of two five-star venues in the city.

It was first opened in 2009 as a high-end venue by developer June Burgess, before it was sold on in 2015 to Hotel Partners.

However, it was ungraded until receiving five-star status from Tourism NI in November 2016. The hotel is in the middle of an investment programme - one of many such projects taking place in the city.
