My husband and I stayed at Ostan Loch Altan for two nights B&B at the beginning of this week. What a great find! We arrived on Sunday afternoon to be greeted warmly and directed to our room. We were pleasantly surprised by the size and décor of the room. It held a double and a single bed, and had a... More

My husband and I are just back from this hotel, a birthday treat for me, we had a groupon deal for three nights B&B. We could not fault anything about our stay, the staff who were all local, were very helpful and attentive to all our needs.

We stayed in this hotel from Sunday 17th August to Thursday 21st. We had two children with us aged twelve and nine. We were struck by the friendliness of the staff from the moment we arrived, the food was only fantastic in terms of quality, freshness, presentation and taste - the best we have had in years. The rooms were... More

Situated in the Irish-speaking Gaeltacht area, the hotel is in a lovely situation. The staff ( mainly local unlike in most Irish hotels) were excellent. The rooms were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. All good so far, so why only an average rating? Well, we ate there on both nights of our stay. The first night's meal was adequate,... More

We are on the second of 2 nights for the hubby's bday and could stay for a week. And...we're in the lobby using the wi-fi! Yes it's intermittent but it's in the middle of Donegal and we're here for a break so we're not too bothered. All the staff are very friendly and attentive and I love hearing them speak... More

Visit this area a couple of times a year, always found this hotels staff very friendly and helpful .
