We have stayed here on two occassions so far and ready to book again!! By pure accident we fell upon this Hotel in Oct 07. A hidden gem! The food is great, so much so ,we ate in the hotel throughout our stay. The rooms are lovely and if you are lucky you might get one of the rooms overlooking the pier. Staff are friendly and ordered taxi's when needed. The atmosphere is friendly and lovely walks nearby (although the coast walk can be hard to follow in places)!! Give it a go!

We stayed at the hotel in May 07 and Hallowe'en 06 both times were fantastic.The food is brilliant. We had a great time there for Hallowe'en and the staff were so friendly.The craic in the bar at night was great with the locals and a wee band.The views are out of this world especially when sitting outside on the summer seats on a warm night.We returned in May 07 with our 8 year old daughter she just loved it and the staff were very good to her.She was allowed to stay in the bar at night.The hotel is so relaxing yet close enought to go into Bundoran and close to beaches.My husband fishes so he loves it and Ralph gave him some tips.He also cooks a great breakfast.We will return the only reason we havn;t been since is we've had a baby.I know she 'll love it too like us.It's very family friendly,superb food, views and staff.Our favourite hotel.Can't wait to return asap.

A friend of mine recommended this hotel to me so as i was on holidays i decided to try it out. Me and my boyfriend only stayed for two nights but it was absolutatley fabulous.The staff were friendly and new there jobs well, the locals were more than welcoming, the saturday night music attracted quite a crowd and provided an evening full of entertainment. Ballyshannon and Rosssnowlagh are only down the road brillliant location and views. I was aprehensive about this trip as my friend that recomeneded the hotel was several years older than me and being a young couple i wasnt sure if it would be right but i would recomened this hotel to any couple. Its fantastic!! Value for money and service with a smile!! One of the other reviews mentioned it was cold well i didnt find it cold but however the staff accomadated anything we requested for the room so im sure if requested heating could have been turned on. Maybe im just biased because i had such a wonderful time!!

we only stayed here for one night but i got two days fishing in.You can fish right outside the hotel and expect to catch pollock, conger,wrasse, mackerel on the rocky left and flatties on the sand to the right hand side of harbour. The food was excellent and staff friendly especially to our two young children.The room was a bit on the small side but still very good value for money.

We stayed in Creevy Pier Hotel for St Patricks night last year. We were a bit apprehensive about noise and asked to be put in a room far away from the bar but this proved to be unfounded. The bar itself was very pleasant and cosy. The room was okay, a bit on the small side and the bathroom was a bit tired looking, but clean enough. And as the others say, the views are lovely. And it is very reasonably priced so you can't expect a huge room.

The big problem was the lack of heat. To say the room was freezing doesn't even begin to describe it. I slept in my tracksuit (luckily clean) and was still unable to get warm. The bed felt damp with cold. At 5am I'd had enough and had to leave. As I was going I found another unfortunate couple wandering around who also hadn't been able to sleep because of the cold.

I had stayed there before and liked it. In the summertime! Unless they sort out the heat I'd say avoid. I'm Irish and used to being cold but this was beyond anything I've ever experienced!
