“Beautiful 5 star hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Just arriving through the entry is very nice. There are walking trails along the golf course & lake. The staff is quite friendly & welcoming. The lobby & public areas are very Irish-the fireplace is always going & charming. Huge bathroom & nice rooms. I do not think there is a poor view anywhere. The one problem is no air conditioning. We did not feel either restaurant was very friendly & poor service.

We spent five days driving around the sights of Galway and Connemara so by the time we reached the Lough Erne, we were ready for a rest. Perfect! We were greeted as if we were already friends and I have never experienced such warmth and professionalism from luxury hotel staff before. Special mention must go to Neil. Thank you Neil.
The hotel, the setting, the food and facilities, all superb! We had afternoon tea and it is truly the best I have had.
We have promised ourselves that we will return and ----- we will!

Room Tip: We had a courtyard room so didn't expect a view but that was not a problem. We were above the en...

This is the first review I've written where I give 5 stars to any hotel without air conditioning. OK, I know that's an American thing, but I've been burned (no pun intended) by hotels/resorts/castles in "mild" climates with no A/C. No air conditioning or not, this is an incredibly comfortable resort with plenty to do and with staff that are the epitome of superb service. From the front desk, to the restaurant wait staff, to the concierge, to the maids, to the golf shop employees, there have been none friendlier nor more efficient than those at Lough Erne. The food in the restaurants is probably about 3 1/2 star - really good, nothing spectacular. If there's an area for improvement, that's it. The golf course is superb in every respect. It is a wonderful layout (choose the right set of tees or pay a huge price) that is in immaculate condition. I can't remember when I've enjoyed a course this much.

From the moment we arrived and Neil greeted us and took our suitcases we were treated as 5* guests. At reception we were informed of an upgrade to a deluxe suite which although welcome hasn't influenced this review. When the hotel first opened we stayed in the Nick Faldo suite so we already knew how luxurious the rooms and setting where.
What was different this time was the level of service we received and the quality of the food. To say they have upped their game is an understatement. I would say it was the best level of service we have received in any of the numerous hotels we have stayed in.
Our dinner in the main restaurant was the type of fine dining experience you hope for in a 5* hotel but don't always get. On our first night we dinned in the golf clubhouse just past the entrance into main reception. This also was a great experience. Don't confuse this clubhouse with the one on your right as you drive up to the hotel?
To all the staff I would like to say thank you for making our short stay so memorable.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a lake view

Recently I was treated to afternoon tea at this resort. It was a birthday present from my daughters and granddaughters. I had never been to the resort before and had the most wonderful afternoon. The hotel is spectacular, both inside and out, and the staff are so pleasant and attentive. A special mention to Anna who served us and talked us through our traditional afternoon teas and Andrew and Kris who very kindly brought me a complimentary birthday slate and sang 'happy birthday'. The food served with the tea was beautiful. We enjoyed the experience so much that my daughters have decided that we will come back every year for my birthday.

We stayed 1 night for a wedding. Our room was very large and decorated to a very high standard. All the staff were very good, we had a really nice breakfast which is served to your table that looks out on the lough. The hotel setting is spectacular right on the lough with endless views.

The hotel is 5 star however we felt there were a number of things that didn't live up to 5 star expectations. The room had no AC which in the middle of July meant the rooms were uncomfortably hot, the water pressure in the basin was so poor you could barely was your hands and curtains didn't fully close, things you don't expect of a modern 5 star.

We stayed for 1 night at this gorgeous resort and will definitely be back. We loved everything about it from the Thai Spa, the fine dining restaurant, lovely breakfast, and helpful staff. The location is beautiful with lovely lake views. Special mention to Nicola in the main restaurant who was excellent and Thomas our waiter of our 4 course beautiful meal. Service a little slow in the bar this was our only complaint, cannot wait to return here again very soon.
