The Enniskillen Hotel
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Enniskillen
Reviewed 17 February 2014

My husband and I decided to 'seize the moment' and headed to this hotel for just the 1 night on Saturday 1 February. Its not pretty on the outside and doesn't have a welcoming reception space but so what. Our room was cosy, clean and had everything you could want for 1 night. Its an old building that has been refurbished so slightly creaky floorboards but we were not disturbed by any noise carrying at all. The bathroom was big, small sink though, huge hot shower. A niggle was the very small towel, I like to wrap up after a shower but these were very small. The bed was very comfortable with very good pillows. A more centralised mirror at dressing table height would be good for getting ready - but then I am fussy.

The highlight of this hotel was the service and food. Alex welcomed us with the cocktail menu and looked after us from 4.30 until 7 when we left to get dressed for dinner. In the restaurant, Alex reappeared a served us throughout the meal. What a credit and such a lovely guy. All the staff were pleasnt but he stood out for us in terms of hospitality. In the morning after a few too many scoops (finished off in the hotel bar after a bit of a crawl and a catch up with an old friend and a chicken sandwich - long story) who appeared with our breakfast tray of hot tasty food but Alex!! Stil smiling and still working hard. Great guy. We slept well, the room was slighty warm, but window accessible and I would rather be warm than cold. All the food was delicous I loved the seabass and my husband's steak was one of the best he has eaten in a long while.

We would stay in the hotel again as its warm and friendly as is the town which was good for a few beers and a bit of craic on the spur of the moment. Well done on making customers feel wanted in your establishment and good luck to Alex and his fiance for their big day in Harvey's Point.

Cheers

We called in for lunch when we were in Enniskillen and weren't sure what to expect. We were welcomed as soon as we walked in the door and looked after very well. The lunch we had was excellent as was the service. The staff were very friendly and made us feel very comfortable whilst there. If we are near here again we will definitely stop off for food.

My husband and I have just returned from the most fantastic 2 night stay in this hotel.

The young staff were absolutely fantastic!! They went out of their way to ensure that out stay was just perfect. Alex in particular is a real credit to their team. This man never stops!!!! Such a gentleman! Maria was a delight when we ate our evening meal also.

As mentioned in a previous review the room was very warm on our 1st night but then I noticed a temperature valve on the radiator so it was easily adjusted.
Room were gorgeous, clean and amenities fantastic!

The food also was of the highest standard and the cocktails delicious. Beautiful!!!

I will definitely be returning :)

Stayed at the Enniskillen hotel for one night on Saturday 25th January.
It's a bit 'squashed in' where it's situated but easy to find.
The staff are really fabulous, some of the best iv'e come across, the decor is amazing, very modern.
The food is unbelivable, from the bar to the restaurant. Only one thing lets the hotel down.... There's no music in the bar at all, not even a Saturday night, as a result we went elsewhere, even someone with a guitar would have created an atmosphere and kept people in the bar where they would spend their money, it's such a nice bar area... Pity really!
The Enniskillen hotel has set high standards for it's self and I look forward to returning...thanks to everyone!
