The Central Hotel - Donegal
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Donegal Town
Reviewed August 14, 2013

The receptionist really could not be bothered with us, stapling menus was more important. The place decour was very tired. We were Kept Awake Until 7:30am...Ruined our next day. The manager was supposed to email us as told by the desk clerk to apologise....never happened.
Some staff were helpful but overall the place sucks....Except for the location in a loverly town.

I stayed with a group of friends for 2 nights. Donegal town itself is lovely and the hotel is basic but nice enough the problem is the staff! Everyone seemed nice enough although me made 4 phone calls to reception during an exceptionally hot weekend for ice and were told repeatedly it was on the way... never arrived. I made the mistake of leaving personal property in the drawer when I left, I realised it very quickly and told them and it was still thrown out...5 phone calls later and still no-one has phoned me back or responded to my letter and to top it off we were charged for breakfast even though our package didn't include breakfast! I wont be going back!

Great short break and lovely area. The staff were polite friendly and very helpful. I would recommend and go there again. It is locate right in the center of town and has easy access to buses, coaches and taxi. The gave a good rate of exchange at the service desk. The food was very good and the room service too.

Room Tip: We had a family room that overlooked the river and you could see otters swimming up and down.

We had lunch in this restaurant during the august bank holiday weekend. Beautiful food, very tasty, reasonably priced in a kind of art deco setting. Staff were very courteous and pleasant. We really enjoyed our lunch and actually will come to stay in this hotel on our next Donegal trip as it is beautifully done.

excellent hotel. My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights in July and everything about it was first class. From the staff to the food and everything in between we could not fault anything. It will be our 35th wedding anniversary in October and we'll certainly be going back.
