“We Love Willowbank”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

My wife and I have traveled extensively throughout the US and Europe, but this was the first time ever that we hugged the hotel proprietors as we checked out. You do not have to hug Joan or Tom Foster, at Willowbank B&B, but you will love them. By the end of our first day we were friends. By the end of our second day we were family. Their home was immaculate and the breakfasts were fantastic. (I strongly recommend the Lough Erne Sizzler, pronounced Lock Air-n Sizzler). We sat on the bed and watched out our window as Irish Hares and wild Pheasants frolicked in the yard just feet away. I had read the other reviews about this place, but still was not ready for the beauty and peace and tranquility. Well done Joan and Tom!

Well Folks, what can I say after your very kind compliments. Tom and I loved having you stay with us and delighted you enjoyed it. We strive to provide a "home from home" experience and part of that is giving our guests a true taste of our beautiful county.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us and hopefully this is the start of many visits to the your ancestral home. Perhaps the weather will be kinder on your next visit.

Warmest regards

Joan and Tom

Just spent a night at willowbank. Joan is a very welcoming host and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely and clean with a lovely view of the garden. The highlight was the breakfast, lots of choice and cooked fresh it was outstanding i would go back for the breakfast anytime

We stayed only one night...our loss! Warm, welcoming hosts make you feel as though you are a guest in a country lodge rather than a B&B. The rooms are large and well decorated, and the bathrooms have everything you could possibly need. Breakfast is superb and an invitation to eat far too much. Joan cooks only local organic food that tastes superb, and you can feel it doing you good. A bit out of town but worth it. A wonderful stay.

I have paid yet another visit to Willowbank House and stayed 3 nights. I am running out of superlatives to describe this place and the hosts Tom and Joan not to mention the breakfasts.
Why not try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Room number 7 is in great demand!!

In September 2012 we visited Joan and Tom at Willowbank House again. We still love their house and their hospitality. And the breakfast can't be better: With fresh fruit, homemade bread and Joans fabulous menus! Everything is great, also the room. It is special to stay there!

This truly is a fabulous B&B, Tom & Joan make you feel like you have known them for years, they are so welcoming. Breakfast is better than you would get in most hotels, fabulous, great variety. Rooms are spotless and cosy and have everything you could need.

We stayed here for two nights at the start of October for our wedding anniversary. Joan and Tom are great hosts and even left us a lovely gift for our anniversary. The room was lovely, very clean, comfortable and like a home from home. Tea, coffee & biscuits were available in the room and if you don't drink Tea or coffee there is a water cooler in the hall. Lots of little touches that you would not get anywhere else!

Breakfast.................BEST EVER! We tried both the fry and french toast. Both were so great we could have stayed another night! The breakfast buffet is also great with fresh fruit salads and home made breads! The breads were delicious.

There is also a sitting area (we did not use this) but it had a DVD player etc. and plenty of magazines. If you like fishing there is a public fishing spot just down the lane.

If you need a taxi Joan will order you one and will keep you right on the best places to eat and visit during your stay. It cost about £10 return for a taxi from the B&B to town.

Thank you Joan and Tom for a most wonderful, comfortable and welcoming break. Will see you again!
