This family hotel is welcoming and friendly, really excellent food and location. Rooms a little basic , though Meryll Streep has stayed here ! Value for money is ourstanding and the range of local beer and of course well served Guinness is excellent.

Brilliant weekend, great staff, very friendly and the food was outstanding, Truly one of the best. The bar was a little pricey compared to local bars (still under 4.50 euro's a pint). The choice of menu and the service was compatible with any 4 star restaurant.

It's a great hotel in a small town, where everyone knows each other. It seems like living with family, as everybody is so friendly and welcoming. Eimer is the most cheerful person and great to see her at reception welcoming everyone. We stayed there 3 nights and got to meet the owners Christine and Johnny Boyle, who are a lovely... More

Stayed in this classic hotel last week and loved it. It's not grand or pretentious. It's the real deal, an old style hotel in a small town in a beautiful county. It has a lovely atmosphere, clean rooms, good food, and above all friendly staff. Great value, I'll be back :)

Room was ideal, hotel was beautiful and very easy to find- on Glenties main street. We had dinner that night and was great, very friendly staff and couldn't do... More

We celebrated here for my Dad's 60th in mid April. As early as June last year we were harassing and harrying the staff with ludicrous requests that would make the day special. No requests was too big or too small and everything was done with a smile and a simple "no problem". A small example of this was we asked... More

Went there recently for a christening. The bar area is quite dilapidated and needs some TLC. The reception on the TV was incredibly bad given the advent of HD television and pretty sure that this was an analogue signal given the fuzziness of the picture. We had a sit down meal with family. Service was mostly excellent and having to... More

We had this bought for us as a gift on Living Social and had not read any reviews. On arrival we realised that this was not a hotel for us and stayed only the one night. The room was very cold, bed hard and not a good sleep. We did eat there that night, as it was freezing outside and... More

Back again to my favourite hotel in Ireland. This hotel is perfect for families, couples, groups and people on their own. The staff are really lovely and are really helpful, they really do go out of their way to help you. The food is brilliant, really tasty and the portions are very generous. The prices are very good too. I... More
