This luxury Belfast hotel is great for city breaks with kids as well as for parents' breaks, babymoons and baby breaks. Occupying a listed former bank building in the city's central Cathedral Quarter, it oozes history and character while offering modern-day treats including a sparkling spa and a rooftop gym, hot tub, sauna and steam room. Its roof garden with its retractable roof is transformed according to the seasons – expect an Alpine lodge in winter and a garden party theme in summer.

Babysitting is available, whether you want to get out and about exploring Belfast of an evening or plan to stay at the hotel, sampling its champagne lounge, jazz bar, cocktail bar or pub. The dramatic Great Room restaurant offers a nine-course tasting menu as well as family-friendly dining, with a great kids' menu including the likes of Hereford beef and grilled fresh fish. The Merchant also serves some of the best afternoon teas in Belfast, and is a great place for a family Sunday lunch.
