My husband, 3 children (11, 8 and 6) and I are just back from a 3 night stay at this hotel and we had a fabulous time! Our room overlooked the car park, not the best of views, but we had no problem sleeping at night and noise was not an issue. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious (even with a camp bed located at the foot of the double bed!!)
Our package included daily sessions for the children in Planet Active and one session each at Planet Imagination - the kids loved it all!! The staff in the kids club are amazing - very friendly and great fun to be around. We felt very happy and safe leaving our children with them.
The leisure facilities were also very clean and the children enjoyed a couple of swim sessions every day.
The weather wasn't great while we were in Buncrana, but it didn't matter as we had to force the children to leave the hotel and go for a walk along the seafront - they were having too much fun within the hotel complex!
The food in the restaurant is best described as good old fashioned Irish cuisine - which suited us perfectly. It was tasty, warm and plentiful. However, we ate in the bar one lunchtime and were very disappointed with the paninis (maybe the chef was having an off day?!).
We found all the staff, no matter where we were within the complex, to be polite, friendly and very helpful.
This was our first visit to this hotel but it definitely won't be our last!
