A spokesperson from the Merchant Hotel said: “At The Merchant Hotel, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our doors until 31st May 2020.
“It’s with a heavy heart that we must do so, but we feel it is the right decision in order to ensure the health and well-being of our wonderful team and valued customers. Rest assured, we are counting down the days until we can give you all a five-star welcome again.
“We will keep the situation under regular review and keep the channels of communication open for guests with bookings beyond this date.
“Please also be assured that over the next few days our reservations team will be in contact with all of our guests with bookings that will be directly affected by this situation. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding at this time. If you have an urgent enquiry, please contact us on +44 (0) 28 9023 4888.
“From the entire team at The Merchant Hotel, we wish to extend our thanks to all our customers for their continued support and understanding in these strange and unprecedented times. Stay safe and look after each other until we are back to do it for you. We look forward to welcoming you again soon for luxurious overnight stays, delicious food, sensational cocktails, soothing spa treatments and more.”
Please note this important information regarding Merchant Hotel Gift Cards:
We recently changed our policy for monetary gift cards; these no longer have an expiry date. This is applicable for all monetary gift cards purchased from 2015 onwards. All e-gift experiences will be honoured until the 30th November 2020. After this time, they may be exchanged for a service equivalent to their monetary value at the manager’s discretion.
