We stayed at Hillcrest for four nights during a short break in Donegal. Our decision to stay at Hillcrest was based on the reviews on Tripadvisor, and we wanted to see if the stories of cosy rooms and the legendary Martin were true. They were! Martin is the best host, so genuinely friendly and helpful that it really made our... More

We stayed here for our first night in Northern Ireland after flying in to Derry because a TripAdvisor reviewer had said they'd wished they'd stayed here longer rather than trying to find a hotel in Derry. We were glad we took their advice - they were absolutely right. We had a warm and friendly welcome from Martin Anderson, a clean... More

We didn't like the city of Letterkenny, the property wasn't glamorous or luxurious, the room was small, as many reviewers have already noted. BUT the owner, Martin Anderson, made us so welcome, was so helpful with tips and directions, was such a great chef and so hospitable, that we would recommend this place to anyone. His friendly, open manner and... More

From the moment we arrived our host, Martin was the best ever! He was very personable and tried his best to make sure we had a great stay! The rooms were a bit small, as well as the tv's but all were very clean. The location was easy to find, (right on the main road, yet there was no road... More

In the Hillcrest B&B you can meet Martin Anderson the best host you can find, stayed in his B&B was a pleasure. It was the first B&B we've never been, but we felt in home. It is located a few minutes from Letterkenny town center, the room was en suite, it is not very big but it is confortable enough,... More

Hillcrest B&B is an immaculate guest house. All the rooms are en suite with tv and, tea and coffee making facilities, and the beds are extremely comfortable. From the moment you arrive, and are greeted by the most genial host you'll hope to find, Martin Anderson, your stay will be a pleasure. I don't know many B&B's, if any at... More

My husband and I recently stayed in a fantastic B&B in Letterkenny, Ireland. Our host was Martin Anderson who gave us a warm welcome and was helpful with our touring plans in Co. Donegal. The rooms were immaculate with modern bathrooms and comfortable beds. Martin is a gourmet chef who was trained in Paris, so we were offered choices of... More
