Stayed here with a coach tour for three nights. Driver handed out keys before we entered the hotel. There was no one to help with luggage. My room was clean with comfortable with tea and coffee laid on but no biscuits. An older hotel and the corridors were a bit of a maze. The staff were cheerful and polite and... More

As part of a Coach Tour we did not expect too much but what a disappointment. On arrival coach driver told us the room number and then collect keys from a table in the lobby. Told by someone that it was on third floor but no other directions. Eventually found a lift (not told about lift in the lobby) and... More

Stayed here for a wedding. Very impressed with the service provided by all staff and particularly Eamonn. He pulled out all the stops for the wedding reception and was fantastic throughout our stay. Food and facilities were excellent. A memorable stay.

We had a lovely break in Donegal Town. Was made all the more memorable by the hospitality and warm welcome at this hotel. Our room overlooked Donegal Bay and the view was stunning. We dined and were then entertained every evening in their lovely function room with great sea views. We worked off all the overindulgence in the spa and... More
