Went there recently for a christening. The bar area is quite dilapidated and needs some TLC. The reception on the TV was incredibly bad given the advent of HD television and pretty sure that this was an analogue signal given the fuzziness of the picture. We had a sit down meal with family. Service was mostly excellent and having to... More

We had this bought for us as a gift on Living Social and had not read any reviews. On arrival we realised that this was not a hotel for us and stayed only the one night. The room was very cold, bed hard and not a good sleep. We did eat there that night, as it was freezing outside and... More

Back again to my favourite hotel in Ireland. This hotel is perfect for families, couples, groups and people on their own. The staff are really lovely and are really helpful, they really do go out of their way to help you. The food is brilliant, really tasty and the portions are very generous. The prices are very good too. I... More

Lovely stay. September 5th-7th . Welcoming staff. Older hotel but everything works and great atmosphere not just as per dancing but in hotel in general. People reading books over a pint etc. Food excellent. Really enjoyed the stay. Cannot understand the reviews from earlier years. For an older hotel this place has everything you need either on a break like... More

Unfortunately we didn't stay at the highlands hotel but we did go there during our holiday for an evening meal, so my comments reflect only on that and not on the quality or otherwise of the establishment as a hotel. We visited the hotel on Thursday 20th August 2014 for, as I said an evening meal, and we had a... More

We were entertaining our daughter and her family and had booked a couple of days at this hotel to break up the stay at our home for everyone and it turned out to be a wise decision. This was our first visit to this part of Donegal and took a bit of a chance that everything would work out but... More

Stayed 2 nights in the Highlands this week. Booked it through Living Social so for what we paid it was ok. Was disappointed as reviews I had read portrayed a nicer hotel. There were damp spots visible. The window in our room had mildew on it. I love the old fashioned decor but there was an odd odour in the... More

Perfect for 5 of us and we booked the Thursday night so as we could also experience the sessions traditional music in the lounge bar. When we... More
