Two nights experience in June '16 in this Hotel was special because it was some 47 years ago in 1969 when my wife, myself and children last crossed the threshold. At Reception we were given a beautiful room with all the amenities and that set the tone for the rest of our stay. The meals served - breakfast and dinner... More

Very nice hotel, located centrally to see the beaches and attractions in and near Ardara, bit far from Donegal however, but has great attractions anyways. Town of Ardara is a very small village but still a fair bit to do as a family. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good. Dinner was better though, we enjoyed our... More

Inexpensive yet underpriced this hotel in the centre of Ardara is definitely a hidden gem,staff are helpful and friendly from arrival to departure,food was excellent and plentiful,Breakfast was good although not great the only slight downfall,rooms are spacious and comfortable with a high level of cleanliness. If in the area I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Good spot. Nice wee town. Friendly people. Good food. Loads of pubs and traditional music. Portnoo golf club ten minutes drive away. Off the beaten track if you are looking for somewhere to relax and spend a few days in peace. Great views also. Good late bar in the hotel aswell. Happy days. Will be back

Stayed for one night on a Wild Atlantic Way trip around Donegal. Hotel lobby and bar have been recently refurbished and are very welcoming. Rooms are a little dated but we expected that, however they were clean and warm. Ardara is a nice village and we would visit again if only to enjoy some more delicious grub at Nancy’s (see... More
