Had a great time in Dorrian,s Hotel. Stayed one night on April 13th. Fabulous warm welcome from the Owners to the huge glowing real fire in the foyer. The bedroom was huge, clean and the shower was fab. Really enjoyed our meal in the Restaurant and the breakfast in the morning. Thanks again. We travelled a long way from Cork... More

Stayed here a few week's ago during Ballyshannon Drama Festival. Had a great time! The rooms were spacious and very clean.The staff were friendly even when some of us had a few too many!! We didn't surface for breakfast but have heard it was delicious. Great value for money! Will certainly be back!

My husband and I stayed here on chance during our recent tour of Ireland. The staff and owner of the hotel were very helpful. We were given a large room and whilst it overlooked the road in front of the hotel we didn't find any road noise disturbing. Although the hotel's in the centre of Ballyshannon it does have its...

Have you ever walked into a hotel and found a sense of comfort from the very minute you arrive? We went on a tour with Bibby's of Ingleton (there in lies another tale of excellence) to Ballyshannon and surrounding areas (Donegal Delights). Dorrian's Imperial hotel was our base. We ate in the hotel for 5 nights and every night you... More

Just back from a wonderful weekend in Dorians. A group of cousins got together for a 'gathering' . The rooms were fantastic and the staff were most helpful - even putting a family crest on the menu for the meal. Lovely oldfashioned decor and furniture. The food was very good. We also had a great minibus driver from McGloins, who... More

We booked this hotel as it was the only one available that week end (mid Aug). Good points: position not bad, private parking available and pretty good breakfast, with generous portions. Bad: very old style deco (not in a nice way) and not so clean, rooms quite cold and beds with army style covers! In addition quite overpriced.
