Hi, I had reason to stay at Dorrians Imperial Hotel last week. Its an older Hotel, but there is nothing wrong with that. I arrived late and met the owner and some of the staff. I had a meeting room booked and we all put the room together to get the lay out I required. The staff were more than... More

My boyfriend & I stayed here for 2 nights (Friday & Saturday) in August as it's location is near to Tullan strand & Rossnowlagh beach which were on our itinerary. The outside of the hotel looks welcoming with flowers in the window ledges & old-style lights. There is adequate off road parking at no cost. However, we were put off... More

My family and I recently stayed in Dorrian's for 5 days and were really impressed with the size of the room which was large enough for two cots, a double bed and single bed and still had enough space for the kids to run around. The rooms and bathrooms were cleaned well every day. The room was not the most... More

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
