The Merchant Hotel - Belfast

Cleggy tries not to speak at conferences on a Saturday - but we usually say yes to the FONT conference in Belfast so I can come along and we can have a cheeky night in The Merchant.

 We have a tradition of going to Mourne Seafood for our lunch

It's difficult not to have the seafood chowder, but this time I had salmon and tempura beans. Deeeeflaminlicious.
Cleggy had pudding...I had an espresso Martini...just how I roll.
(Lets not pretend I didn't share his pudding too!!)
Then we go back to The Merchant.
It's right up there is my favourite hotels ever - 
Not only is is a beautiful building steeped in history but the service is amazing and the cocktail bar is voted one of the best in the world.
On our last stay it was indeed all about the cocktails...
but this year it was all about the room!
We got the upgrade of upgrades.

I think I might actually have squealed when I opened those padded gold wardrobe doors to reveal a lit dressing area!
I LOVE that lady etched on the bathroom door.

 And the furry headboard. Not thrilled about the amount of mirror...but soon got over it!
The following day  we have breakfast
(nice jugs)
then while Cleggy does the work bit 
(there's a pattern to our trips!!)
I have a little crochet and take some more photos of the building. 

This year I also had a look through the visitor book. There are some really interesting people in there, 
(Seamus Heaney, who I studied for my Literature degree)
and to please my more shallow side Ant and Dec and Robbie Williams.
Then before we catch the plane home we go for a little wander - 
both to Avoca 
(for lunch and a mooch)
After a couple of hours at St George's market
 There are some brilliant buildings in Belfast - and, as in all our big cities, a wonderful mix of old next to new.
 This year we made one purchase - this card!
It's always one of the best 24 hours of the year
and 2015 did not disapooint
