"Our guests could not have been more impressed with The Merchant. You and your team, made it their home for the last four days and to quote a couple from South Africa, The Merchant was the best ATR Trip hotel, that they have stayed in to date. From the warmest of welcomes in reception, to the elegant, delicious Private Vault Dinner and wonderful cocktails in the bar, followed by luxury rooms, where housekeeping had attended to every possible detail, this will without doubt, be a most memorable visit to Belfast for them all."
