Just returned from our second visit to Pontoon, we had the most enjoyable stay! Special thanks to Noel for looking after us so well in the bar. Great to see the familiar faces again! We stayed 2 nights and dined in both the bar and the restaurant. Food was delicious and the drink was even better! Will be highly recommending... More

Our group arrived late afternoon and after about half an hour we had a copious dinner with great choices to chose from. The view over the lake from the dining room was extraordinary and the sunset was absolutely fantastic, prompting most guests to take pictures. Personnel at the desk, as well as in the restaurant, was polite and helpful. After... More

The weather was very good so we sat out on the balcony and enjoyed the view (amazing).There was music in the bar and people up dancing. Staff behind the bar were... More

I have read some of the previous poor reviews below and can honestly say that the poor remarks about the place were not how we found it. My friend had booked her 50th birthday celebrations at this hotel for a group of 6 woman for a long weekend. Our rooms were fabulous and huge and very clean. Must admit I... More

Hotel beautifully located with some rooms overlooking the amazing Lough Conn, other rooms at front of hotel facing the road. Limited parking in hotel car park. Restaurant had great views overlooking the lake, pity the windows were not daily cleaned as weather during stay was warm & balmy. Food fresh and local and nicely presented. Staff young and inexperienced in... More

First, this hotel is in a great location with fantastic views from rooms at the rear. Unfortunately it is not very dated and seems neglected in places. Staff were very helpful and friendly though. Reminded me of the hotels in Dirty Dancing and the Shining!
