Just back from a 2 night Living Social Deal at the Clanree Hotel. Arrived mid Saturday afternoon, very easy to find, there was a wedding in progress and everyone seemed very busy, we had no problems checking in, the receptionist was very friendly and helpful, told us all the required information needed.
Our room (Rm 200) was quite small but nice and clean, it had everything we needed.
As the hotel was very busy we went out for the evening into Letterkenny a short drive from the hotel, there are ample bars, and places to eat if you are looking for somewhere to go. We returned to the Clenree later in the evening to have a little difficulty finding a parking place due to the wedding guests, but we did manage to find a place at the back of the hotel. After a few drinks we decided to watch a bit of TV, great range of channels and a good size flat screen tv.
The only problem we had on our weekend was the constant noise from the lifts beside our room, it seemed to go on and on till the very small hours, kept us awake quite a bit, altho on Sunday morning on the way to breakfast the lift was out of order, and I must say we weren't sorry to see the sign as we had a peaceful nights sleep on Sunday. Also ask for extra pillows if you need them, we did and no problem got them.
Food at the hotel was good, breakfast was ok both mornings, and as part of our deal we had dinner on one evening, which we decided to have on Sunday evening, we went down stairs shortly after 8pm but didnt realise the restraunt was closed on Sunday, but as the bar was open we didnt mind eating there, but were told by the bar staff the kitchen was finished and the chef had gone, the bar staff said she would find out if anything could be done, with in a minute the manager come out and said they had managed to catch the chef before they left and we could have dinner after all, well we were very impressed, and the food was well worth it, excellent.
Well done chef and thank you to the manager and the bar staff for the great friendly service.
I have read lots of the other reviews and agree this hotel is a little dated, but overall everything else is good. We would stay here again.
