The hotel is nice it is a bit dated, the hotel layout is like a maze. The room was comfortable even though the beds looked uncomfortable they were decent. The breakfast was very good and the location was great, and the price was right also.

I booked this hotel on the rating here on TripAdvisor. Faded, used room with a busted bed. Carpet I would not put my bare feet on. Stained and dirty chairs and mattress. The elevator doors were drenched in some unidentifiable dried liquid. I did not want to touch them. Unfortunate as well is the smell from the swimming pool which... More

This hotel is located in the heart of Donegal and seems to cater for large tours that pass through on their way around the Wild Atlantic Way. The hotel looks small from the outside but spans back onto the river. There is a lovely view from the River View rooms so try to get one of these if possible. The... More

The room and food were excellent and the staff was most helpful and friendly, it was a pleasure to stay there and we are returning this September ,2016. When I experienced difficulties with my rental car the staff went out of their way to help resolve it .
