I stayed here in July 2012. This hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of Donegal Town, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly and after some hard travel, so appreciated. The room was comfortable, bathroom was nice, super clean, great water pressure in shower, nice windows on courtyards, rooftops, and with town views, theres a gym and pool on the ground floor. Pretty quiet for the center of town and a busy lobby and bar. Buses stop pretty much at the door, taxis across the street, great restaurants steps away (Castle Bar, Blueberry Cafe). I am frequently in Donegal, and this will now be my place to stop.
Also, locals frequent the bar and restaurant which is such a plus for many reasons.
I have read a few other reviews and am baffled by the negative. If you are expecting a Doubletree Courtyard Hotel Corporate type of experience in Ireland, you might not have the same experience as I did. But if you'd like to enjoy a real Irish experience in an incredible Irish town, this is a good place.
If I had one request, it would be for maybe a ceiling fan or something in the room...I was there in July and it was a bit humid...though I don't know how often that would be an issue... ;->
