Very friendly staff, lovely relaxed ambience about the hotel, but then it's in the heart of Donegal! Food in the bar was adequate, breakfast was excellent. The hotel is in a great location to visit around the coast of Donegal and the wild Atlantic way

I stayed with my wife and young baby in this hotel. We had purchased a groupon deal which was an absolute bargain. We got our breakfast each morning which was lovely and our dinner on the first night was also great. The chocolate fudge cake was lovely even tried it because of the previous review.

Most people do as they like to sit down and relax and have the breakfast served at their table instead of the buffet style self service. It may be more traditional and old fashioned but most of...
