Outside of hotel gives a good impression, plenty parking offroad parking spaces and nicely present. Reception person pleasant and professional, but things went down hill from there. My room was very small, with the wardrobe nearly in the bed with me! However, for the very low price I could live with that. What was not really acceptable was the hairs... More

We stayed here for two nights on a Living Social Break. Normally we stay in Innishowen when we visit Donegal, but this time we decided to explore the more westerly area of the county. The hotel is set in the little hamlet of Gortahork, about 9 miles along the main road from Dunfanaghy. It is set on an inlet of... More

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago for a weekend away with my girlfriend. It had its good points and bad points. We went on a GroupOn deal, and were given a fairly big room which I was suprised by. On the other hand, another couple that came along with us on the same deal were given probably the... More

After a long days driving, we stopped in for quick bite when passing one evening. Sat in lovely lobby, got some food which was so nice and very good value. There's a great variety on the menu. Great friendly atmosphere for a busy place. Very relaxing, could have sat all night. Also very family friendly, kids around too.

A recent stay at the Ostan Loch Altan proved to be enjoyable and welcoming. The staff are very pleasant, courteous and friendly even when busy! The quality of the hotel is 3 star but could do with a little TLC. The room was clean and tidy although the sheets were torn around the edges but nothing too bad. The bar... More

Just back from a 2 night stay here, read a couple of poor reviews but I got to say they must of been staying somewhere else lol. Room was spotless as was the ensuite and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay again if in the area.

On checking in the receptionist didn't seem at all interested in us. We weren't told about dinner reservations etc. we later learned that although we had booked 3 b n bs and one dinner the restaurant was only open from Thursday till Sunday and as we arrived on Sunday thus wasn't available to us. So we ended up with a... More
