We have been coming to the Ostan Loch Altan for many years now and when we decided to get married in Donegal, there was only ever going to be one winner as far as hotel choices went. From the moment when we chose the Loch Altan, our arrangements were handled with a calm professionalism by Sean McElwee, the General Manager.... More

We were allocated a family room which was excellent, being roomy and very comfortable the only drawback there was no view at all from the room. As part of the Living... More

The rooms clean and comfortable and the food, though not fancy and pretentious is good wholesome enjoyment. Thoroughly good value for money you... More

My Partner and myself returned yesterday from a three night stay in the Ostan Loch Altan Hotel. The hotel is lovely and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We ate in the bar for the three nights and the food was really nice. I would recommend this hotel for a quiet break and we will definitly be returning.

By and large the hotel was good with the exception of dinner on the first night which looked like it had been cooked before and re-heated in the microwave! Hence we did not eat there on the second night!! Room was very comfortable and warm even though it was on the small side and overlooked the road although there was... More

Went on a one-night Groupon deal. Nothing to complain about as the room, dinner and breakfast represented very good value for money. Free car parking and free wifi, despite earlier reviews. Would definitely do again.
