Overall, very nice place to stay. Busy with lots of tour groups and buses…lobby can be hectic. Facilities a bit worn but comfortable (remember, this is Donegal Town…not Dublin). Very accommodating staff. I arrived a bit grumpy and after checking in to hotel and getting in to room had to return to front desk with a list of needed items. They got them all together and soothed my frayed nerves. It was unusually warm, we asked for a fan (no AC), and they produced one (I think they took it out of their office!). We stayed 3 nights and 2 of the nights there were high school proms in their club...big crowds of young people. But it was quiet as a church in our 4th floor room. BTW…we typically decline help with our bags and we did in this case…but if you're on the 4th floor and they ask if you need help with bags…say "Yes!" Elevator only goes to 3rd, then stairs to the 4th. Apparently, wash cloths in the rooms are not standard issue..our room was without and it wasn't a mistake…but they rounded some up on our request. We stayed in Ireland about 3 weeks in several different places, including 4-star hotels…this place had the most comfortable beds we found! Buffet breakfast was good but lacking in variety.
Just re-read the above and it sounds negative, but overall it's a nice place to stay, a good value, and we would stay there again.
