The room was large, but the bathroom tiny. The electrical outlets were oddly placed...for example the room had an electric kettle, but the only outlet by the service was in the closet. Light switches were just weird, the fan would run in the bathroom (noisily) if the power switch to the outlet by the bathroom sink was used to charge... More

We had 2 rooms in July 2015. They're spacious and clean. The hotel staff are friendly and were helpful in recommending things to do in the local area. It's a traditional hotel, with quaint (but clean and tidy!) decor. Breakfast was good and it has free wifi service. There is car parking available behind the hotel. It's a great location... More

My husband and I enjoyed a weekend at Dorrians Imperial Hotel June 2015. We were in need of relaxed break from the stress of everyday life and Dorrians turned out to be just the ticket. We arrived late the first evening, after a long drive. We were met with such a warm reception by the owners and reception lady. As... More

Stayed in this hotel for one night, this is an old hotel that needs serious investment. But I would still recommend this hotel, rooms are perfectly adequate, clean, well equipped,(old style tv) Bar and lobby need upgrading, the actual bar counter and shelves are beautiful, the dining room is old style, but the staff are very nice and helpful, chatty...

This is the most pathetic excuse of a hotel i have ever seen. It is definitely not 3 star. The biggest laugh is the dining area. The paint is flaking off the walls, glass is cracked and in some cases smashed. The place is a total dump. We went for the carvery. All food was prepared out the back which... More

We stayed one night after a function in the hotel, we had a lovely big room, lots of storage, 2 sinks in bathroom, nice view over the rooftops to the mountains in the distance, table & 2 chairs, so unusual these days as most hotels only provide 1 chair in a room for 2 people, why?? We also had a... More

Stayed for four days over August, lovely hotel and the staff are fantastic. Would recommend the hotel for anyone travelling around Ireland. The Thatch bar is amazing and well worth the visit and the atmosphere is unreal. Gives the impression of an traditional irish gig in a little old pub.

I stayed in Ballyshannon for the Rory Gallagher International Tribute Festival. It was very busy for the entire weekend and it was great to escape to the quiet of the hotel situated in the centre. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. The room (309) was clean and just the right size for a single use - the quality of... More

We arrived to a very warm welcome. The room we had was very spacious, comfortable, very clean and well furnished. The whole hotel was beautifully decorated and staff very pleasant and helpful. The Irish breakfast served every morning was a brilliant start to each day and we had very nice meals in the evening. We stayed in Ballyshannon for the... More
