Will the fitting be hot?

Hot to touch, yes! Most lights create heat.
Halogen bulbs do tend to produce the most heat, which can be uncomfortable for some.
Fluorescent energy saver options produce much less heat, which is another good reason to use them in lights that operate for extended periods or areas that are already warm, like a kitchen during dinner prep or dish washing.
LED light sources are cooler again, but emit less light as a consequence. This is why LED’s are popular for use in gardens and where children may be able to touch the light.
