5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We arrived here as a party of four and a small child. We had got a deal on travelzoo which we were using. On checking in we realised I had got dates of stay mixed up and we were meant to have been there the previous evening. The hotel was completely fully booked which meant there was no room for...

I had the pleasure of staying at your hotel last weekend with my partner for a family wedding on 5th February and I want to say it was an absolute amazing time.

Just spent 2nights on a Living social deal for hubbys birthday. Paid extra €50 for superior sea view room - fantastic view of the beach and ocean. Allocated number 104 - room called Aughrim, above the residents lounge. Not sure what their standard rooms are like but for us it was well worth paying the extra. Massive room very well... More

It's been a number of years since my last visit to this great hotel and I'm glad we returned for a quiet break. Hotel has been maintained to a very high standard and clearly benefits from ongoing investment. Our room was spacious, with all the necessary additions, only small issue was the view onto the air conditioning units and the... More

I have to agree with the previous review. The rooms were lovely,clean and spacious. Most of the staff were courteous and approachable and engaged in friendly conversation. The leisure facilities were wonderful and I used them on the two days. I had a spa treatment which was pleasant, but the spa is situated too near the entrance to the pool... More

A truly lovely hotel with super staff on the North West corner of the Inishowen Peninsula and in February the weather is beyond bracing. It is Arctic! A group of eight of us went to play golf! At least I brought our clubs, even though they didn't leave the boot. The place would get five stars but the food was... More

Arranged a weekend here with family, (12 in total). Staff were fantastic and catered well for larger parties and were very good with the children. We had a meal in the hotel and the food was good as was breakfast. Restaurant also has good facilities to keep the kids occupied. Looking forward to returning.
