Our review of a top-notch hotel with a stunning view.
Located in the heart of the Fermanagh Lakelands, close to the Enniskillen town center but just far enough away to enjoy the tranquillity of the Lower Lough Erne shores. The hotel itself is quite large with just under 80 rooms yet still feels like a family run homely resort.
As soon as you enter the welcoming gates of the Manor House country hotel you really get a sense of relaxation. Driving past the large green gardens and getting a glimpse of the sun reflecting off the calm Lakeland’s. On check in we were greeted by the front desk and even received a friendly call to the room when I clumsily forgot my drone bag at reception.
The hotel has a fairytale feel to it with a charming country house ambiance, from the classic fireplaces to the vintage chandeliers, you almost feel like you’re in a medieval castle.
The room itself was extremely spacious with a large living area that alone was bigger than my apartment’s living room, it actually took much difficulty even getting a picture of the whole room as it was so enormous. The living area came kitted out with a large TV, fridge, tea & coffee facilities, large table to work on, comfortable sofas and of course an incredible view of the Lakeland.
Leading on from the living area was the cozy bedroom with a sizeable bed that has more than enough room for three people never mind a couple. Looking out from the bed you have a large balcony that has some of the most scenic views we have seen from a hotel, we even managed to take off a drone from the balcony it was that large.
Yet the bedroom or living room wasn’t even the best part of this hotel room, in the bathroom, you have two large sinks, a shower and the pièce de résistance the jacuzzi bathtub with a monitor to relax while watching some late night television.
The Manor House doesn’t just have amazing rooms though, the food is incredible as well. The hotel offers a variety of dining options; their AA Rosette Belleek Restaurant, Cellar Door Bar & Bistro & Watergate Bar. We especially loved the true Irish breakfast that was served up every morning with a smile that starts your day off perfectly.
After you have tickled your taste buds, the Manor country house offers numerous in-house facilities for all your needs, including a complete leisure center with a large swimming pool, steam room, Jacuzzi, Sauna, fitness suite and Outdoor Hot Tub. Also on offer is a 9 Hole, Par 3 golf course, tennis court, pitch and putt and an option for a luxurious cruise around the Lakelands on the Lady of the Lake Cruiser.
Overall, The Manor House country hotel really is a Northern Irish gem, it truly is a perfect relaxing retreat where you can arrive and not have to leave the comfort of the resort. The food is incredible even in the bar and the facilities are top class. When taking the price into account it really is a first class hotel even for the upgraded suites including breakfast it beats the price of many hotels yet has so much more to offer. The only issue we had was the internet which was slightly slow for our needs but for just scrolling social media or checking your emails it would do the job for most.
