He had no idea what it was and became rather irate and told us we were going to have to pay again. The receptionist was lovely and took the confirmation and told... More

Ostan Loch Altan is very cosy and friendly and in the heart of the Gaeltacht area in Donegal. We stayed there for two nights and had a wonderful time. We ate in the bar on the Friday night and the meal was very nice and great value too any 2 courses for €14.95. What we loved about the bar area... More

Room sufficient for our needs, breakfast and evening meals good. No lifts in the property so would not meet the needs of anyone with mobility difficulties. Communication with hotel bad, despite sending a query when booking via website and 3 separate emails, no reply received. Rang the hotel direct and got answers to my queries. However was told that there... More

The rooms are still full of 70's furniture! The old fashioned TV had only 2 channels. It's like something out of Heartbeat!!! The bar carpet is filthy. If you are looking for a good hotel pass this one by. much nicer out there. Definitely won't be back.

Hotel Loch Altan is a cosy venue with a local, familial and casual vibe. The decor is somewhat tired but perhaps of its ilk. The carpets seem to have a lingering must scent and the paintwork is chipped with poor attention to cleanliness in the bathroom downstairs. Parents shower room was much newer and better, however was an absolute slip... More
