An excellent hotel. Was warmly greeted by the lady at reception who introduced herself by name. A very clean welcoming hotel. Rooms immaculate, bathrooms too. Hotel warm. Service excellent and food second to none. The hotel is very central right in the middle of Donegal town, perfect for small to large groups. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
