“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

My wife and I and another 49 guests enjoyed a wonderful 3 evening mid week stay in the hotel. The welcome was terrific, the room was super, the breakfast was outstanding, the evening meal was enjoyable and the location of the hotel could not be any better.
It is a great hotel for a stay in a lovely town and my wife has just booked to go back with her mother next month.

We had a great time here when we visited a few months ago. Food was great and there was an excellent selection. Room and good size and clean. Met plenty of nice people in hotel bar and myself and wife had a great time chatting and getting to know the other guests. Staff were very helpful at all times and we could not find fault with this hotel at all. We have been here a few times now and every time we go we always have a great break. Donegal town is a very interesting place to visit and I would highly recommend taking a few days to see around the place and take in all it has to offer.

Hi just about to go to the abbey in 2 weeks time for about the 10th or 11th time, if your looking clean dressing gown everyday, bed turned back for you everyday, quiet get away from it all hotel this isnt for you, you might get that 5 mile up the road at 3 times the price, if your looking warm irish hospitality and a bit of craic,good food,clean comfortable,warm room then this is a little bit of irish heaven, the staff are most friendly and helpful and as someone who has travel quite a bit in 1* to 5* accomodation i can honestly say this is second to none! The entertainment laid on is suited for all due to 3 different areas and different tastes catered for...roll on the 18th :-) Gary

Just come back from an Urquart New Year Coach tour to Donegal. Fantastic! Coach journey, including ferry, was excellent and well organised thanks to a five star driver. Abbey hotel was comfortable and food and entertainment was first class. Could not find any faults.

I stayed at this Hotel during a 5 day coach holiday recently and could not fault anything I experienced. The food was simply but well cooked, plentyful and hot, beds were comfortable and our bedroom was always warm. The staff were very pleasant and the Hotel itself we thought was clean and comfortable. breakfast was the usual self service starters and a canteen like service for your mains, but really nice food, even the fried eggs were done perfectly. Dinner had a choice of 3 starters,3 main and 3 sweets, which came plated, always hot and tasty. Usual hotel style performers each evening if you wanted to listen. Drinks above average price. Could not have asked for more.

This hotel has a very chic restaurant that produces very fine cuisine. The staff offer true Irish Hospitality with friendliness and attention to detail that makes for a really nice experience. tha layout provides for intimacy yet the staff are always to hand should you require any help. I would definitely recommend this venue
