Beautiful surroundings and great value for money. The staff were helpful and the food in the restaurant was lovely. The rooms were clean and modern with little to no noise. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay. Conveniently located to the magnificent atlantic drive.

We booked a night in the hotel with breakfast at the last minute in a rush to explore the Ireland coastline. The Hotel is on the main road and it is quite possible to miss it but we quickly made a U-turn and left the car behind the hotel. Checking in was a breeze and we should have heeded the... More

When I booked this hotel, I did realise that it was on the main street of Downings. Thinking that this hotel was going to be noisey but it wasn't. The only problem I did find was that I nearly drove past it and we could not find the car park. It wasn't until we checked in that was told were... More

Just returned from a Saturday night stay at this hotel. The hotel is lovely, friendly staff ,with quick and efficient checking. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. We had a meal in the JC bar in the foyer and the food was gorgeous. Breakfast was lovely. The only thing is the nightclub attached to the hotel. The music went... More

Stayed for two nights to unfortunately attend a funeral , and the hotel locally was more like a family home with their hospitably and accommodating such a large group. Room nice, staff nice, location nice, excellent hotel. I will be back for another in beautiful Ireland.

Stopped for a night on a trip around the Malin coastline. Large rooms and good bar food in a quiet, out of season resort. Very close to the beach and probably busy in high season, but nearly empty at the beginning of September... close to village shop and a couple of pubs, but we ate bar snacks that easily met... More
