We have just returned from a 4 night stay at The Central Hotel. It was a great break. The choice of food was very good. Buffet style breakfast and at night 3 starters to choose from, 3 main courses ( meat, fish or vegetarian) and 3 desserts. Our room was kept very clean and had everything we needed in it.... More

Spent 4 nights here on a shearings holiday, our room was a bit small but very clean and everythink you needed, the food in the hotel was really good, and all the staff were all pleasant and helpful, the town gets quite noisy at night so you should ask for a room at the back.

Spent 4 nights at The Central Hotel as part of a coach holiday. Well maintained, clean, comfortable and well appointed. What, to me, made this hotel so enjoyable - the staff. Pleasant, polite, efficient and helpful - but always time for a chat. Our room, 157, was let down a little bit by a lousy view and being overlooked by... More

Only stayed one night but loved it. We paid a little extra for a river view and weren't disappointed, our very big room had a huge window looking out across Donegal Bay which was stunning. Massive comfy bed, big bathroom with separate bath and shower all spotless. Staff were very friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay here again.

First off, the hotel is in a great location, right in the heart of town, a few minutes walk from the waterbus, the tourist office, the Abbey, the Castle and the Railway Heritage Center. The staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast was tasty. The view from my window was a three day Kodak moment. The hotel has free... More

The hotel is centrally located, Everything in town is in walking distance. ATMs and bus stop right outside. You have to park down the street at the Visitor's Centre, but once your luggage is in the hotel, you really don't need a car to get around the town. The hotel itself is neat and clean. The staff were friendly and... More

Hotel is worth the money it costs to stay here. Bar food is nice and very reasonable. Staff are friendly and room was cleaned everything morning. Great location right in the middle of town. Never used leisure facilities but friends said it was very nice. Would recommend for a visit.

Quirky but neat hotel. A solid 3 star spot in the middle of town. Only complaint was their booking web site which implied no charges in advance. Assuming my credit card was simply being used to hold my reservation I was surprised when i was billed in full non refundable immediately upon reserving 4 months in advance! I would advise... More
