This is a great hotel, it has a very relaxed atmosphere. Stayed here on Saturday night with 6 other girls. Rooms very very big and had everything we needed. Staff were friendly and we had a lovely breakfast the next morning.

Great hotel, found that the room was too hot. We could not keep the window open as the machinery out the back was too noisy. Needed to use the night porter and found that the problem was dealt with swiftly so 10 / 10 for that. Breakfast was spot on. The choice of cereals, juices breads and hot food was... More

Stayed in the hotel for two nights. The hotel has everything you need for a great stay. The staff are helpful and friendly. The food in the Upper Deck is really nice. We had a party of six and there were no complaints, everyone enjoyed their meal. The rooms are spacious and if you get a room at the back... More

Enjoyed a few days here touring the Area. The hotel is very conveniently located in the centre of the town with many restaurants and shops nearby. The hotel gives you a car park to key to use in the adjacent pay and display Car Park. Tuesday night entertainment was good but mainly set up for Bus Parties as they getriority... More

Stayed for one night in this hotel and was presently surprised. We had a spacious room overlooking Donegal Bay, stunning views. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. Probably the best nights sleep I've had in a long time! The shower was fantastic - would put some 5* hotels to shame. Breakfast was nice enough but... More

It was impossible to park my car close to the hotel. So,I had to find a temporary parking spot on the busy Diamond. Walk to the hotel and then get instructions on the nearest public car park, which was not secure for an overnight stay. Even though there were lifts As my room was at the back of the hotel... More

Beautiful hotel and saddened by very loud door slamming. This is because the door handles don't turn, so everyone pulls the door shut and it can be heard from all over. Thin walls also. Yes the rooms are nice, but the noise is considerable.

Went with my husband Dave for the weekend. We had a nice room at the Central Hotel, looking over Donegal Bay. We met Jenna at Reception and she was very nice and very helpful. We have recommended this hotel to our daughter and her boyfriend for the August Bank Holiday weekend. We took the Waterbus around the Bay. This was... More
