Stephen gave us the best welcome and guided us in every way he could. There was a difficult guest ahead of us and I admired his endless patience!!!. The bar food was...

We stayed 2 nights in a suite for a bit of added luxury during our stay. The suite was lovely with a fantastic 4 poster bed and lots of facilities. Some of these were a little tired. The whirlpool bath didn't seem to work and some of the furniture was loosing the odd bit of trim. The bed was really...

The hotel has an excellent setting, with the little lake, golf course and woods, but is clad in the rather grey uniform of concrete - a bit bleak and forbidding on the approach rather than impressive. Once through the doors, the decor seems to take a dive 100 years into the past, with gloomy wooded interior and on the corridors...

Four of us stayed here. I was using a voucher so had to upgrade to use it. I felt the quality of the room and the layout of the dining room was far below what expected for the price paid. The food was good but the presentation again did not compare with other hotels I use which at the same...

I've never felt the need to post a review before, but felt I need to make this one my first. Stayed here with my family when visiting relatives in Kesh for an engagement party recently. Had stayed here in years gone by, during the heyday of the Lough Erne Hotel, and used to love the place. Unfortunately though now things...

My fiancé booked flights from Newcastle to come over for this 2 night stay that I had booked and given to him as a Christmas present.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lough Erne townhouse hotel is a little locally run 16 bedroom building with a small but key staff who deal with our guests on a daily level, providing a more personal service that certain guests love time and time again. The Hotel is situated in the heart of Fermanagh's lakeland on the banks of the Glendurragh River 1 mile from Lough Erne itself, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you on your arrival at the Lough Erne Hotel. Our Riverside lounge and Bridgewater restaurant offers an excellent choice of menu. Regular entertainment, weekend and midweek breaks throughout the year. The Lough Erne Hotel began life as a Royal Irish Constabulary barrack in 1862. It was built by the governors of the Vaughan Charity who then owned the village of Kesh. The building cost £650 and the police paid £30 per year for rent. A year after the barrack was built it was burnt down in an accidental fire. Some repairs were done immediately but further work was carried out in 1921. For example stabling for horses that was provided behind the hotel in what is now the Glendurragh Suite. One of the RIC officers stationed in Kesh, Constable McCormick, was a very famous boxer. In fact he once fought the British Heavyweight Champion, Billy Wells. Another local man, Bob Irwin, was also a famous boxer in those days, once beating the Welterweight champion of the Rhine Army. ... more   less
