Pretty much as per the title. The staff however I cannot fault they are welcoming and attentive. The issue here must lie with management. The partying went on till 3am. We were not warned and were placed in a room overlooking the car park. I should have checked on here firs!

Comfortable and warm hotel for two weary (and wet!) motorcyclists, staff were generally helpfully and polite but the next day showed the star as I had foolishly left my iPad in my room on check out, calling later Paddy advised the iPad was found, and would be posted to me asap, calling again later he checked my address, and then...

They were well organised and couldn't do enough for you. The food is fantastic as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone,definitely worth a visit

Shower freezing -no hot water. Hotel cold and food appalling . Walls between bedrooms paper thin. Could hear next doors activities and talking all night . Kettle in room-what for... More

We are perturbed to read the reviewer's comments and must offer our apologies if their experience proved a genuine disappointment, however we believe that the review is overly critical on a number of points. The guest arrived at the hotel during an extremely busy evening when there were a number of major functions taking place. During warm weather patrons tend... More

Some lights not working, bed very uncomfortable, no hot water (lukewarm), shower pathetic a dribble of water, again lukewarm. Cereals on display, the breakfast has to be order separate, tea was cold, had to order a pot of tea not much better, cold!! No stair lift. What a dump, spoilt our holiday!!!

While we are disappointed to read the comments of the reviewer we feel we must take issue with a number of points. The room was checked prior to the guest arriving and all lights were working, as was the case after checkout, so we are at a loss to explain the particular problem. There are no issues with the bed... More

I would'nt normally review a place twice, however, having visited the Fir Trees two years ago with my Wife and loved it, we returned with the kids. As any Parent will know, this dramatically changes the dynamic. That said, The Fir Trees delivered once again. Fantastically spacious and well equipped room which was very clean and comfortable. First class service... More

This hotel is on the outskirts of Strabane. A modern enough hotel with small but adequate rooms (everything worked ! ) The reception and a man for all seasons was Paddy who really can respond to every question in a most helpful way. Very popular with the immediate neighbourhood environs as it seems to look after a lot of weddings... More

I stayed here for three nights to celebrate my friends birthday and visit her family. This place just has a lovely welcoming atmosphere from the minute you walk through the door.
