I've never felt the need to post a review before, but felt I need to make this one my first. Stayed here with my family when visiting relatives in Kesh for an engagement party recently. Had stayed here in years gone by, during the heyday of the Lough Erne Hotel, and used to love the place. Unfortunately though now things... More

My fiancé booked flights from Newcastle to come over for this 2 night stay that I had booked and given to him as a Christmas present. Having picked him up from the airport and driven to the Lough Erne Hotel it was clear that upon simply driving into the car park that this hotel was not going to meet the... More

At £65 a night through laterooms.com, we weren't expecting much from our short visit other than a comfortable bed for the night. However, what you do expect is that in February, with temperatures outside around 3 Celsius, that the heating would be turned on. Coming back from a wedding at 9pm, with cold radiators and barely lukewarm water coming out... More

Chocolates on arrive....5 Quality Street in a tied bag! Rooms damp and smelly. Bed clothes ripped. Powerless shower. Cold and very basic! Breakfast was awful,... More

My husband bought this deal on Groupon. Due to various family circumstances our daughter was over from England and was staying with us. After contacting the hotel to ask if we could add another person to the booking we arranged an alternative date which was Friday 24 and Saturday 25 January 2014. The member of staff was very helpful on... More

First of all we bought this 2 night deal on groupon thinking it was the Lough Erne resort! (How wrong we're we) extremely foolish of us not to check this out but thought we would give it a go anyway. Arrived Friday early January, room was quite small but was grand for all we wanted it for. Bathroom was freezing... More

Hi Jenny, Thank you for your review, however there is a couple of issues that you have mentioned that we disagree with. You have made a couple of comments about the food that you received on your first night. You claim the "fish turned to a watery paste" and that you're partner's dish came with a "skin" on the sauce.... More

Hi Pisces731959, Thank you for your comment, however there is a couple of comments mentioned that we disagree with. You commented on the breakfast lacking fruit, yogurt or soda.

The Lough Erne townhouse hotel is a little locally run 16 bedroom building with a small but key staff who deal with our guests on a daily level, providing a more personal service that certain guests love time and time again. The Hotel is situated in the heart of Fermanagh's lakeland on the banks of the Glendurragh River 1 mile from Lough Erne itself, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you on your arrival at the Lough Erne Hotel. Our Riverside lounge and Bridgewater restaurant offers an excellent choice of menu. Regular entertainment, weekend and midweek breaks throughout the year. The Lough Erne Hotel began life as a Royal Irish Constabulary barrack in 1862. It was built by the governors of the Vaughan Charity who then owned the village of Kesh. The building cost £650 and the police paid £30 per year for rent. A year after the barrack was built it was burnt down in an accidental fire. Some repairs were done immediately but further work was carried out in 1921. For example stabling for horses that was provided behind the hotel in what is now the Glendurragh Suite. One of the RIC officers stationed in Kesh, Constable McCormick, was a very famous boxer. In fact he once fought the British Heavyweight Champion, Billy Wells. Another local man, Bob Irwin, was also a famous boxer in those days, once beating the Welterweight champion of the Rhine Army. ... more   less
