“Lovely little stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We stayed at the Silver Tassie from Sunday to Wednesday, on a bed and breakfast basis.

We arrived after dinner-time on Sunday night and check in was very simple! We got room 102 which was in a fab location, really close to all the facilities. The room was lovely, not ultra-modern but nice and "country" and very spacious! The bathroom was very clean and we got fresh towels every day no bother. The room has a handy little pop up ironing board and iron near the door, which was really handy!

We ate breakfast 2 out of the 3 mornings and it was fab! you could help yourself to cereals and fruit juice etc while you were waiting on your tea and cooked breakfast, we had the small fry every morning and it was the perfect size for breakfast. We ate from the bar menu twice, once as a late lunch and once for dinner. The sharing starter was lovely, as were the main courses. It was nice that we were able to stay at the table after dinner and enjoy drinks next to the fireplace, which was lovely with all the Christmas decorations up! The guy at the bar also let us charge up our ipad as we ate... Great service!

Free wifi was a bonus.... Didn't get it in our room but that wasn't a big deal, we enjoyed using it in the bar while we had tea and coffee.

Location is really good, it's not in the centre of letterkenny but it's a fab base, not too far from anything and its actually nice being a little further out. Driving up to the hotel from letterkenny gives a great view of the hotel, especially at night when it's all lit up!

Overall, we would definitely stay here again, was a great price and a lovely place.

My husband and I enjoyed a two night stay at Halloween. We had booked a great value break at €99 for the two of us for two nights, midweek, with breakfast. Very hard to beat that. We received a very warm Donegal welcome on our arrival. The room was clean and very comfortable. Staff in restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The food was good. We treated ourselves to a massage and facial in the Seascape spa and thoroughly enjoyed it. We could n't fault the hospitality we received and we look forward to getting such a good deal at some other time.

My wife & i had Sunday lunch here on Sunday 18th November 2012 we were there for 1pm 5 course lunch €21.50 each food was fantastic we skipped the soup which is served to you went straight for the starter table it offers a vast selection of cold meats, salads & seafood the whole salmon was fantastic as was the smoked salmon.

Main course is the usual beef,stuffed pork.lamb,salmon, honey ham & turkey that was the best i have had recently it was perfectly moist & tasted like real turkey not the processed rubbish a lot of hotels are now using. There was other opotions available for main course, The vegetables was also excellent chunky carrots & cauliflower cheese, lovely stuffing & good mash potato.

Dessert also offers a vast range of choices i just had a chocolate & peanut dessert which was lovely. Tea & Coffee self service all in all great choice & good value we will be back.

Also all staff were very friendly.

Probably the worst vegetables ever served to us in all our travels - they would have been heated up from lunchtime and were terrible as was the roast of the day, tough and dry. The steak was on the menu with a choice of side order but then they restricted us to a choice of three, and wouldn't give the required side without paying extra for it. They don't deserve the business with this attitude and quality of food. We have been past here since and driven on by to another location - our advice is for you to do the same. Its a pity as it is handy, a nice place and the service was good. Sorry.

I went to the Seascape spa for a Full body Hot Lava Shell massage. It was my first time in the spa and I was greeted by the lovely staff as soon as I walked in the door. I was quickly shown to a lovely little changing room to change into my robe and slippers. Once I was ready I was shown to the steam room where you could stay as long as you wished and then I chilled in the lovely cosy relaxation room before the lovely Olivia collected me for my Massage. It was my first time getting the Hot Lava shell massage as they are new, but it was by far the best massage I've ever had. An Hour of complete bliss. Following the massage Olivia showed me to the snuzze room and gave me a lovely cup of herbal tea. I was allowed to relax there as long as I wanted which was great.
All in all I spent about 2hours in the Spa which I thought was great value for 60euro.
Great experience in the Seascape spa, would definitly recommend it to any one wanting to pamper themselves. I will be returning very soon.
