Overlooking a marina, this impressive lakeside period house makes a fine hotel, and the scale of the Victorian architecture and the style of furnishings and decor lean very much towards the luxurious in both public areas and accommodation.
Immaculately maintained and regularly refurbished, it has an impressive conference and banqueting area with its own separate entrance, which has been discreetly added to the side and rear of the original building and, despite its large size and more contemporary approach, in no way detracts from the appeal of the old house.
Spacious bedrooms range from interconnecting family rooms to deluxe doubles and romantic suites with canopied four-poster beds, and front rooms have stunning views.
The hotel’s air conditioned cruiser, Lady of the Lake, offers catering and bar facilities for up to 56 for tours, corporate events, conferences and parties.
Conference/banqueting (400/350). Leisure centre, indoor swimming pool; beauty salon. Children under 3 free in parents' room (cots available). No pets.
Rooms 81 (all en-suite, 2 suites, 12 junior suites, 3 single) B&B about £70pps, single £90. Special breaks offered.
The Belleek Restaurant:
The restaurant is beautifully appointed (even more so since a recent refurb) and well positioned to make the most of the lovely view.
The hotel has always had a well earned reputation for its kitchen and culinary ambition is reflected in sophisticated menus sporting some esoteric ingredients. But, that aside, menus express the admirable philosophy “True to the region, true to the season”, and dishes that are memorable for real flavou can sometimes pack quite a punch.
Good teamwork between pleasant, experienced staff and well trained younger people backs up the good work done in the kitchen, making for an experience worthy of this lovely venue.
The Enniskillen area offers some excellent dining venues and there is no doubt that the Manor House must be giving them a run for their money - and the ace up its sleeve is the wonderful setting.
Like the food, service is in tune with the grand surroundings - making this a good choice for a special evening out.
