stayed in the valley hotel for 3days for a base to visit the fermanaghlakelands and enniskillen, bundoran beaches etc
Service, staff and hotel very impressive - bar and resturant brillant- staff coped very well until pressure at busy service times. Food amazing!!! rooms lovely, spaceous, up to date apart from the SHOWER- the SHOWERHEAD WAS TOO HEAVY FOR HOLDER so water was showering the taps not your body, which in turn soaked the floor-using 3 towels to soak up the water-in the end had to shower by holding the showerhead -the shower curtain was glued -screwed into the wall far to close to the tiled wall so it ment you didnt have room to shower yourself without getting the shower curtain stuck to you at all times!!! I cant say if this is the case for every room but it was for ours
This in turn DID NOT SPOIL OUR WEEKEND in any way but hope it is fixed for the next paying customers- WOULD RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS

  • Liked — the location as it was on the outskirts of all the places we wanted to visit
  • Disliked — the shower

Stayed here for 3 days on business, room excellent, service -couldn't be improved upon, hospitality-1st class.
I worked till late and on my return was offered the full choice on the menu long after the restaurant had finished for that evening, you couldn't receive better attention anywhere else.
Really enjoyed my stay here and having stayed at many hotels over many years I would rate this hotel 10/10.
I Will return here on my next visit to N.Ireland.
Not forgetting the food--superb!
Well done all.

I work in a four star hotel in Derry and this hotel does not compare with more expensive hotels in Northern Ireland. However, the staff were really friendly (even after we returned from a wedding at another hotel in the small hours). All in all for the money paid this is a great hotel.

  • Liked — Value
  • Disliked — It's in a quite rural area- I don't imagine there would be much going on...

We the Ruddy, Simpson, and O'Donnell families from Canada enjoyed our stay at the Valley Hotel. There were 11 of us - all family.
The family operating the Inn could not have been more gracious,
accomodating to our needs.
Mr. and Mrs. Williamson and family deserve a big "Thank You! for being such great hosts

I booked the Valley Hotel for a two night stay while in the Enniskillen area largely based on the good reviews the hotel received on Tripadvisor. It is ideally placed on the main Belfast-Enniskillen road and is well signed as you enter Fivemiletown.

A nice friendly welcome on arrival from the staff reception desk staff and they offered to have my luggage delivered to my room once I was checked in.

Rooms had been recently refurbished and were of a high standard. Initial impression was a clean, fresh smelling and spotless room which was well maintained and tastefully decorated. The room was well equiped and included data ports, an LCD television. plenty of electric sockets and an ironing board and trouser press.

The bathroom was gleaming and had a good selections of soaps, shampoos and lotions along with a sewing kit, shoe-shine kit and shower cap. It was nice to see that the Valley have retained these things when so many of the large chains are pennypinching and no longer provide them.

Dining is provided in the hotel in either the restaurant or you can order food in the Bar. I chose to eat in the bar. Meals are prepared fresh to order and I found them to be very good quality. It seemed to be busy on both nights and many people sounded to be local which is always a good sign. Breakfast was served in the Bordaux restaurant and again the service and quality of food was of a high standard.

Overall, the service at the Valley is outstanding. The major chains should go to the Valley to see good customer service in action. Too many times I stay with my work at major chains and find their idea of interacting with customers is limited to a few phrases learnt parrot-fashion which they repeat to every customer. It is refreshing to see that staff at the Valley have not gone down this route are all genuinely friendly and still treat their customers as GUESTS. They seem to go that extra mile to provide top class service and a superb place to stay.

Hope to be back there again soon.

We booked a two day break at The Valley Hotel, which included BB and one evening meal. The rooms, although small are spotless, really nice and comfortable and included a working plasma TV, a full hospitality tray, trouser press and iron. The bathroom was also spotless and had absolutely everything that was needed, including all those lovely little bottles!!

The food was excellent with generous portions. We eat breakfast ,lunch and dinner in the hotel and we were not at all disappointed. In fact I would make the 1 hour journey from Belfast just to enjoy the lovely food.

The staff are all so friendly and efficient. Could not be more helpful.

All in all I would say that this little hotel is a gem and in my opinion should be awarded 3 star status.
