Having recently returned from a stay at this hotel,(22-08-2014, I can only say that we were far from impressed! To be fair the room was of a good size,with dated furniture that was in need of a refurb. The food how ever we can only describe as poor, and the only potato that appeared on our dinner plate was a... More

Hotel is centrally located in the heart of Donegal town, beware no parking outside. Rooms are spacious,clean and there is hair dryer & selection of tea coffee. As part of a coach tour mashed potato every night on the menu got boring, come on chef there is plenty of ways of cooking a potato. Food otherwise was good. Restaurant staff... More

My partner and I stayed here for a couple of days in August 2014, all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was large and spacious, overlooked the river and was spotlessly clean. The food in the very comfortable modern Market garden restaurant (in the hotel)was excellent and plenty of it, breakfast was the same. Hotel is situated... More

Recently spent a night at this hotel with a coach party. Our room was large and spacious and overlooked the river. The food and service was excellent. Would certainly recommend this hotel and would stop there again if I went back to Donegal.

Hotel centrally located, no hotel car park though, you will be given a concession for a public pay and display car park a couple of 100 yards away, park as close as you can to the garda station across the road to deter any potential anti-social behavior. Hotel lobby appears nice and inviting but unfortunately the same could not be... More
