This is a very comfortable hotel with 20th century charm, and on entering one is welcomed by a hearty coal fire; surrounded by numerous stuffed (replica) dogs. The foyer and dining room areas are tastily decorated with local and Irish photos and some nice antique pieces. All of the bedrooms (on our ground floor corridor) along the front are designated...

This venue proved a real Winter Delight. I do love older hotels and I surely did not go wrong on this one. Parking is a bit tough though there is a carpark around the back with tight egress. I got a great spot on the street, however. My chambers were large and roomy with good matrasses. As it was January,... More

We picked this hotel for no particular reason and were pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. Everything was clean and tidy,the room was spotless and although there was a wedding in the hotel and the staff were very busy they were very accommodating. Truly a nice stop. Thank you Jim&Shawna McGonigal

My only complaint is that the wifi was not working in my room and as I needed to use my laptop I had to sit in the foyer to get signal . The... More

We have just returned from a 5 night stay and found the hotel very clean and the service excellent. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was always freshly cooked and a good selection of cereals and fruit was also available. Good soda bread as well. The location is good for sightseeing... More

I stayed in Dorians recently for a night and it was a mixed experience. The hotel has a large enough car park with direct access to reception. The receptionist (owner) was very welcoming, helpful and full of chat. The reception area is huge with loads of comfie chairs and an open fire. I went to my room which was on... More

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
