I recently stayed in the Donard Hotel as I was attending a Wedding Reception in Newcastle. I booked the room and was very pleased with their competitive rates for one nights bed and breakfast as I couldn't get booked into the hotel in which the wedding was taking place in.
I was very pleased with the service prior to my arrival as reception were able to give me advice on the phone as to parking in the town. The hotel has a small private car park to the rear, but unfortunately it was full upon my arrival, and with their advice I was able to park nearby until I got checked in and then I could move the car later on.
I was delighted with the hotel initially on arrival, I was warmly welcomed and checked in easily, and was escorted to my room via the lift. Located at the rear of the hotel, it was a clean and tidy, bright and airy room, well proportioned with a sleeping area, dining area and bathroom. Good facilities in the room, and was to be a cosy and comfortable nights sleep!
After a very late night at the wedding party, the night porter on duty let me in and I went to bed.
The very late night turned into a late rise in the morning, and I had missed breakfast, but the very kind receptionist went above and beyond the call of duty and organised a cooked breakfast, toast and a coffee for me (which was much needed!!) to set me up for my journey home.
The overall service during my short stay was fabulous. I would highly recommend the hotel to all as it provided a very comfortable stay for a competitive rate.
I know I would have no hesitation in booking The Donard Hotel again in the future.
