Family recommended the Highlands hotel for food. Staff were friendly and attentive. Menu was OK. Chose the homemade chicken curry. I think management should rethink the wording on the menu as this was not homemade. it was clearly a mass produced product supplied by catering firms or the like. Other meals ordered were nice but portion sizes were visibly controlled.... More

Got a great deal on this hotel through Groupon for an overnight stay and evening meal. The hotel itself is very old fashioned and could do with updating. Food was just ok. Staff were not really very friendly and I would not stay here again. More suited to older people.

The hotel has limited wifi, which worked well around reception but we couldn't... More

t's by no means a 5 or 6 star resort in Dubai but I doubt you could find friendlier, more homely accommodation anywhere in the world. The family / staff are genuinely caring people, even after check out and when a coach load of tourists were filling the restaurant they took care of my wife and two rather demanding little... More

The Highlands is a lovely hotel - warm, traditional welcome, with friendly, helpful staff, a relaxed atmosphere, and yum food (and plenty of it). Great base for exploring Donegal. Definitely recommend it.

A large group of us stayed here recently. We stayed 2 nights and had dinner and were in the bar all evening. Christine 'hung around' outside rooms checking if we were drinking in our room. I brought a bottle of Cava and asked for ice to my room on arrival which we were given no problem. ( I alone spent... More
