We enjoyed our stay in the hotel which was well situated in the middle of the town of Bundoran. The staff were very friendly and approachable. The only real compliant would be the cleanliness of the rooms. The rooms appear a little predated and could do with being a bit modernised but comfortable to sleep in. Also as a non... More

Stayed here for a weekend with daughter. Lovely staff esp reception and waiting/bar staff. Room fine apart from a bit of a whiff off carpet. Offered to move us but we didn't really want to pack and unpack again. housekeeping used Shake and Vac a couple of times and it helped. We were happy to stay in our first floor... More

Hotel on the main street. Central to everything. Staff excellent especially the lady on reception. Rooms a bit old fashioned but very clean. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room and free entertainment on both nights we were there. Good cooked breakfast. Excellent value for money. Would definitely book to stay there again.
