Superb food- great staff. Very reasonable prices. 2nd visit here was still amazing - menu has a wide variety. Beer battered haddock to die for! Caters for kids as well as adults and gives free dilute juice with meals. Desserts great- especially hot chocolate fudge cake- so light!! (Served with vanilla ice-cream).

Stayed here at the beginning of July and I have to say that it has definitely improved since I last visited in Feb 2013. The rooms are all being painted and modernised with new bed linen and I have to say they have made a grand job so far. Rooms are immaculate, showers great and the bathrooms very clean too.... More

Went here at weekend and constantly had to go to bar to ask staff to take food orders and ask for dessert and the bill each time. The food was ok. It wasn't bad but feel it should be better at the prices paid. The decor inside was very outdated and the tables and chairs were very low down and... More

We spent 3 nights at The Highlands Hotel in Glenties this week, and have resolved to return to this beautiful part of the country again, very soon. Part of what made our mini break special was the service, food, friendliness and atmosphere in this family run hotel. Our room was clean, comfy and had a great sized bathroom. We ate... More

Comfortable, homey rooms. Spotless housekeeping. Hospitality and warmth of owner and staff are beyond description--everyone there is either family or performs as such. Response to any question or concern is prompt and pleasant. Food is fresh and well prepared. We will return.

I stayed at the Highlands due to the death of my younger cousin and the owners, Christine, Johnny and family were so supportive and kind. It is a lovely hotel with excellent food and the staff are warm and friendly. Irish hospitality at its finest.

There is no mat at the front door but if there was it would have to be huge to accommodate the word 'Welcome.' This is Glenties, a small town with a great heart, wonderful people and a hotel which naturally looks after all who enter. The Highlands is a hotel, a community centre, a meeting place, a must for local... More

This old-fashioned country hotel has not changed throughout all the years I have been visiting the area. They do a good trade in food and drink and it is a good social hub for the environs wth the usual crop of drama society meetings, traditional music and dancing lessons. I had two dinners in the hotel and both were very... More
