“Fab weekend”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

My partner and I just spent 2 nights at the clanree.. And it was a joy all weekend.. Pleased to be appointed and executive room on arrival, good leisure facilities (which are awaiting renovation). And other sections of hotel undergoing renovation to improve., Food was delicious and staff friendly., would definitely consider a return journey when full renovations complete!

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

my wife booked us a weekend break in the clanree hotel in letterkenny. booking in was made easy by the receptionist who was very efficient and friendly and explained everything in detail. rooms were spacious and clean with all facilities available if I bit tired in the decoration but having said that a major refurbishment is already underway. on the Friday night we ate in the bar though being packed we were served very quickly by friendly staff. the food was excellent. on the Saturday night we ate in the restaurant which was also excellent both in food and service. both nights were spent in the mcgettigans bar which is large but has a great atmosphere packed both nights staff great and friendly live entertainment every night over the weekend. great weekend will be back.

Helpful and friendly staff and our stay was ok. The bar had great atmosphere, particularly on weekend nights, with good music. But the bar was the best part of the hotel. The whole place was in desperate need of renovations. The en-suite bathroom in our room was clean but rusting and falling apart. Our room was facing the front of the hotel and the main road was very loud all night. The gym was literally two small, smelly rooms with some random equipment in them. The swimming pool also needs renovating and was often busy with swimming lessons; family friendly but definitely not romantic if you're looking for a couples retreat. Make sure you bring flip flops to get through the changing rooms! There are lovely restaurants in Letterkenny, don't bother paying for the over-priced, mediocre food in the hotel. At least they are aware of the need for renovations as the last day of our stay the foyer was filled with scaffolding and work men.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel so you're not listening to the busy main road at the fro...

Stayed in the Clanree for three nights for our 25th wedding anniversary, the Hotel was lovely and although it is under going renovations we were not inconvenienced in any way..The pool was very spacious an pleasant..The restaurant Decor was amazzin and we hit lucky on the Monday night With the steak night which was super value and the steaks were mouth watering yum !! the room was very comfy,The only Fault we could have about the Hotel was the heat !! (don't get me wrong I like the heat) But It was really over bearing they need to turn the thermostat down a little.. We turned our radiators off in the room but it made very little difference,Other than that we loved our stay here an will definiteliy retun Lovely Hotel ....

My sister and I had a lovely stay at the Clanree Hotel last night. We began with a super lunch in the bar where the staff were very friendly and courteous and the food was beautiful. From there we moved to the beauty salon where we both had a facial and a massage, many thanks to Margaret and Ailish who really helped us feel very relaxed and chilled. Really enjoyed the experience, best facial I've had for a long time- would highly recommend a visit to the salon. We had dinner in the restaurant and again the staff were friendly, courteous and efficient, the food was very tasty and we didn't feel rushed even though they were busy. Overall a lovely stay and we would definitely like to go back !

I stayed here Thursday to Saturday and very much enjoyed it. The hotel is very conveniently located and an excellent base for exploring Donegal. Check in was fast and the desk staff were very helpful. I got a room with a double and a single bed (and I was a single traveler) which was very comfortable and clean. The TV was modern and the water was clear (don't judge the hotel on the photos on this site alone!) Breakfast was buffet style and there was a large selection of cereal, fruit, bread, cold meats and also hot food, eggs, bacon, etc. Dining room staff attentive! I also had an evening meal in the hotel bar as it was included. The surroundings were very nice, must be quite newly renovated, and my meal was very tasty. Swimming pool was good, there is also a steam room and sauna, and the gym looks well equipped though I didn't try it.

I booked this hotel as the price was good value, although the reviews in this site are mixed. I think some of them must have stayed elsewhere as their reviews weren't indicative of my experience at all. Would recommend and stay here again!
