Clean, friendly and efficient the rooms were spacious and elegant, the bedroom large, well appointed with a very comfortable bed. Dinner was very good and the bar well-appointed (with an extremely helpful and efficient barman.) I only stayed one night but would regard it as an excellent centre for site-seeing and walking. The dining room is clearly popular locally and... More

What a charming place to stay oh my goodness I just loved it! Treated my husband to a night away for his birthday and decided to try somewhere different. So glad we did. Not everywhere has such a personal touch or such spacious rooms. Our room was a suite with a huge four poster bed, seperate sitting room and beautiful... More

I stayed here for a night in August 2015, at the end of a tour around County Donegal.It seemed a strategic, and pleasant, place for a drive down to Dublin next day to catch our flight home. It's a little bit tricky to find, navigation being useless (as of Aug. 2015 anyway)--the manager patiently explained on the phone but perhaps... More

I can't rate this hotel highly enough. Staff great, rooms great, food was marvellous with a wine list to match ( we had the Bordeau, highly recommend). Complements to the chef. A family owned hotel that has resisted all the changes that a large hotel chain would make. I love the original architecture, the old world charm with a hint... More

We went to Castlegrove for dinner after having been there once before a few years ago. We really enjoyed our return. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the drawing room where we had drinks was a relaxing space. It feels like a home not a "corporate" space as sadly many places do nowadays. The food was outstanding. Served at a... More
