We stayed here whilst visiting our daughter-in-law's family in Buncrana, and couldn't have been more pleased with our room - immaculate and up-to-date amenities - the warm welcome, and its location. The attached restaurant and bar were warm and cozy, and the food good. This will be our "home away from home" when we return for future family gatherings. Recommended.

When with a group of friends for a catch up on a quiet Monday night, did book a table the week before and we were very glad we did, even at 7 pm on a Monday evening it was busy. The waitress didn't rush us, and came back several times before we all ordered,this was not a problem. Our starters... More

Great location on main road and there is no significant traffic noise . There is no restaurant but does good bar food and irish whiskeys. Rooms are very comfortable with beds affording a good nights sleep. Breakfast is very good except for the sausages which seems to be the norm in inishowen. room rates are reasonable.Would definitely stay again

Stayed for two nights. Rooms were wonderful and clean. Atmosphere was just brilliant and food so delish. Steak was cooked just perfect and starters were mouth melting. Perfect prices for a perfect stay. Barry d waiter was funny and really helpful. 100% recommend the place.

What a marvellous little gem this place turned out to be. The rooms are very well kept, staff are very friendly and the restaurant, food is delicious. Well worth another stay. Very reasonable rates too.

My 2 children and I stayed here for two nights last week as we explored Donegal. Initially, we were put in a room where the wifi did not work. When I inquired about that issue, I was told that that was the one room in the hotel where the wifi did not work. So, they immediately moved us to another... More

We stayed 2 nights and had 3 rooms. All were large, clean and comfortable. Fantastic staff throughout from checkin to breakfast to restaurant. Bbq ribs are superb. Evening pub is full and fun. Literally cross the street to lovely beach on lough swilly shore. Visit the "gas station" next door - delicious treats await in the cafe inside!

Large rooms, great bar, great food and great service. Friendly and very helpful staff. Excellent breakfast served in nice surroundings. I will be back to stay on next trip to Donegal. 30 minutes drive from Malin Head which is a must see for dolphin and whale watchers.

Room was outstanding, very spacious with a large ensuite. Everything supplied, shower gel Shampoo etc. TV in room - only Irish Channels though. The staff were very helpful. Would not recommend the restaurant. We have eaten here before and should have known better, but we were tired and didn't want to go into town. Ordered the rump steak and ribs... More
