Went here for my wife's 40th Birthday. What a feed we had with offers of more food if we wanted it. Left totally stuffed and satisfied and well priced. I would highly recommended this place. Thank you for bringing out my wife's surprise birthday cake. A real personal touch. We will be back. By far the best food in innishowen.... More

We spend there weekend break. When we arrived there, hotel seemed to be very nice and spacious. Our room was quite big - but bit oldfashined - with nice views. Overall very clean , but something was missing. Food in the restauran ( dinner) average, but breakfast very nice with good choice, excellent service.

Room was awful. Dirty walls broken lights and tv was from the 60's! Bed was comfortable and clean at least. Breakfast was disastrous. Took about 15 minutes before anyone came to serve us - and only then because i called her. 2 tiny sausage, an overcooked egg, 2 pieces of bacon and a half of a tomato. AND INSTANT COFFEE!!!!!...

Fortunate that the weather was great, but the hotel added to to experience of yet again another wonderful stay in Donegal. Food and drink were excellent and the service brilliant. The aroma from the turf (peat) fires is absolutely terrific and everyone is so friendly

The staff at the hotel were extremely professional and friendly at all times. The service in the hotel was very efficient and the food was extremely tasty and great value for money. The hotel itself has a very friendly and home from home feeling that allowed me to relax during the entire break

We were served by a lovely lady who was fantastic and the manager came around to ensure we were happy with our visit, excellent customer service. The atmosphere of the hotel was very warm and welcoming.I... More

We stayed 2 nights for a wedding and had a really lovely time. The family room we had booked had lots of room, lovely views and good beds. The breakfasts were very well done, the staff were always there and ready to help (even at 6.30am when I needed coffee before getting ready for the wedding). The rates were a... More

Great value 5 course meal for 20 euro. Suitable for a large group of golfers, walkers or just hungry people. Good plain food. Recommend the prawn cocktail and chicken wing starters, both delicious. Pay 5 euro extra for a sirloin steak, well worth it, served with potatoes and vegetables and with chips and coleslaw on request.Beautiful light Bailey's cheesecake was... More

We had a very nice break here. The staff are friendly, bending over backwards to make us feel at home. This was not my first stay at the Strand, and will probably not be my last. Highly enjoyable and would recommend it to everyone.
