We had out wedding reception here at the end of June 2014. As you can imagine, we were pretty nervous about the big day, but these guys had everything under control! Loads of our guests have since complimented the venue, the food, the staff, the pool, the view and the hotel in general. I suppose if we're nit picking, we prefer to email but it might be better to call this hotel. On the day everything was perfect, despite our nerves, and for that we say a special thanks to Jo for reservations and Breda and her team for organising everything before the big day and massive thanks to Ricardo and the function staff who was amazing on our big day! Highly recommended to all!

Stayed at the Ballyliffin Lodge from Fri 11th July - Mon 14th July and enjoyed it very much. We had booked a superior room at the front of the hotel as these rooms don't suffer as much from the noise from the function room if there are weddings (there were 2 weddings during our stay).

The room was large and well furnished with a fridge & safe at no extra cost. It had all the usual stuff, flat screen TV, easy chairs, small table, hairdryer, reasonable wardrobe space/drawer space. As we had a balcony we also had a table & 4 chairs on it (this particular room costs extra per night). The bathroom had the usual stuff as well with towels changed daily if required. Wifi was free but I could only get connected in the lobby area and not in my room.

Breakfast was fine just help yourself from a good selection. We ate just one night in the hotel, I was a bit disappointed with the menu, I expected it to be more varied.

Any staff we met were very friendly as would be normal in Donegal. The hotel was very fresh & clean.

We went down to the pool but didn't use it but it looked very nice, remember to bring a swimming cap as you must use one. They are also on sale at the pool for 3 Euro each.

We enjoyed our stay & would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel are less noisy if there is a wedding

Stayed here based on positive reviews. Nice hotel , friendly staff but a bit noisy, centered around a busy bar with adjoining restaurant. Food is fine. Likely a big hit with young families as seemed to be the case for the majority of guests. I would not go back but seems to be the best hotel option in the area at the same time.

Dear Guest, Sorry to read that you would not consider a return visit in the future and apologizes if you found the hotel a bit noisy. At this time of year we do indeed have a large number of visitors in the hotel with footfall at its highest with the hotel being fully booked most nights We never like to think of someone not returning so we would hope to see you in the future maybe in off-peak season. Many thanks for your review and Best wishes.

My husband, daughter and I have just returned from a lovely mid week break at the Ballyliffin Lodge Hotel & spa. This is without a doubt the loveliest hotel we have ever stayed in.
