Sometimes it's strange how you come across places. On my way to Derry (London) we needed something to eat and we turned off at Strabane and found The Fir Trees. Well we had a very good meal at a very reasonable price, taking into account the change over from Euro to Sterling and we also decided to stay for the... More

Lovely hotel, friendly helpful staff, particular mention to Eileen and Tina but all the staff were lovely. The hotel ensured our Family reunion was a brilliant success, the venue, food and general hospitality was excellent. Thanks again.

Charlie and Donna would like to take the opportunity to express their gratitude to Johnny Kelly and the staff of the Fir Trees Hotel, Strabane, for their professionalism on the occasion of our recent wedding on 21/3/15. Attention to detail was perfection and nothing was "too much bother". We would like to especially mention John Duffy, Paddy Houston, and Joseph... More

Then we ordered our food which was absolutely disgusting I took it home for my dogs! And waited yet another hour for the crappy food! Not one waiter came up to... More

This review in no way represents the standard of food or service that typifies the Fir Trees Hotel, as attested to by the vast majority of reviewers. Having spoken to every member of staff who was on duty during the period I am convinced that the incident did not occur and that this is a purely malicious review; the fact... More

We offer a hugely popular ''value for money'' lunch menu serving on average 200 covers daily. This menu was devised having taken into account comments and requests from our regular customers, and it has proven to be a major success. The menu is designed to offer customers a light lunch and a speedy turnaround, and this is reflected in the... More

I could write an essay on the night in question but i will just raise my biggest concern. I ordered a fish dish from the new menu - the cod. When the dish arrived it was not correct, it was meant to be an indian spiced cod but on the plate there was what looked to be a creamy chorizo... More

Given our excellent reputation for food we are extremely disappointed at the comments expressed by the reviewer, particularly as the person is a regular who has previously only had good dining experiences at the Fir Trees Hotel. We serve in the region of 3000 meals weekly and whilst we strive to ensure excellence at all times (and we seldom have... More

It's the only hotel on town and is in a lovely position. It is in serious need of an overhaul and refurbishment to make theist of its potential .

We are disappointed to read the negative comments contained in this review particularly as the proprietor of the hotel dealt personally with the guests and their ''issues'', even offering a deluxe upgrade, which the guests refused on the basis that ''all was ok''. Initially I would like to address the so called ''breakdowns / malfunctions'' (1) We have recently upgraded... More

Would like to commend the Hotel on its special package deal on 13 February. The deal was a four course meal, including a cinema ticket to the premiere viewing of Fifty Shades of Grey. The meal provided was outstanding; both in presentation, quality and quantity. Complements to Mandy and Paddy for securing the booking; the Chief for the wonderful meal... More
