“hotel clean”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I stayed in Gallaghers for a Saturday night, Room was clean & tidy, Bathrooom was ok, I had to call in one of the room maids to fill up the shampoo dispencer as it was almost empty. It does not have any little shampoos or shower gels which is a pity as it would enhance the hotel. Also most hotels provide a small pk of biscuits in the hotel room with the tea & coffee but this one had none & none available to buy. I would come back but it would not be my 1st choice.

Dear Brendan JM,
Thank you for your lovely review and your kind comments in relation to the cleanliness and location of the Hotel, apologies for the lack of soap in the dispenser this was an error on our part we are at present upgrading from dispensers to individual bottles for shampoos and lotions in all our guest rooms, and I hope you will see the improvements on your next visit if you choose or decide to visit Letterkenny again.
Many thanks again Brendan.
Kind Regards,
Antoinette Coyle.

I stayed here over New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. We found the service to be brilliant for such a busy time and staff were very helpful and friendly.

The room was basic but pleasant and very clean. The room was very reasonable so our expectations were met from the moment we opened the door. It was a last minute decision to go somewhere for NYE so we were convinced the whole trip that we had made the right decision and that we would definitely return.

Also the food was brilliant and nothing was too much trouble (I'm a veggie) they were perfectly happy to accommodate me.

The staff at the reception were very nice and helpful during check in, we asked for a quiet room and we got it without any problem - we stayed on the 3rd floor.
The room was quite basic but clean, the beds were very comfortable. There was quite strong smell going from drain in the bathroom so we kept the bathroom door closed.
There was no wifi in the room, it looks they have it just in certain hotel areas, it wasn't such a big deal for us since we didn't need it this time but if you know you are going to need don't forget to mention in when checking in.
The breakfast was good, you can choose from full Irish or continental breakfast, the selection isn't huge but there is something for everybody and the food is nice.
The big plus is the free parking just behind the hotel, it just might be a bit hard to find a spot if you are arriving late in the evening.
The location of the hotel is great, just at the end of the Main street so it's within walking distance to all the shops, restaurants and pubs.

The first thing that hits you about this hotel is the smell inside, like cooking fat. Quite overpowering. Still, the lobby looks quite nice in spite of this. Reception - not a great welcome overall. Our receptionist was a bit like a sergeant-major, very controlling, not in the least welcoming. In fact, it was like she was doing us a favour by letting us stay in a room that we'd paid for! Very unpleasant. We were determined not to let this bother us however. She directed us to a room that had a view of a solid wall, so a bit claustrophobic. Okay. At that point I should have requested a change but the experience with the receptionist stopped me doing that. However, the room was clean and beds comfortable so that was nice, Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner - much cleaner in fact, so I didn't have the luxurious bath that I had been looking forward to after a long drive. The air in the room was very stale and it was difficult to sleep because of that - had to keep the window open to get a breath of fresh air. Breakfast was really good, great selection and very fresh and the staff at breakfast were exceptionally friendly and helpful, couldn't have been nicer. Overall, this wasn't a great experience because of the smell, frosty reception and lack of air. On the positive side, bed was clean and comfortable and the room was spacious enough, Don't think I'd go back.

Room Tip: Don;t go for 223 unless you want to face a wall.

We stayed here for a hen night at the weekend and I was really impressed with everything about the hotel - particularly the staff!! Everyone was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble! The food was lovely (dinner and breakfast) and also a much deserved mention to the barman who was very accommodating when it came to our late night cocktail requests in the residents bar!! Would definitely consider going back!

Stayed here Fri 1st March -stayed here 3-4 times before. Brilliant stay and great value for €50 for a double b&b. Staff excellent,very friendly and efficient service at breakfast and staff very kindly provided an ice bucket for our wine even though they had a limited supply. Did not have evening meal here so cannot comment. Check in and check out very quick and staff very friendly. The staff definately make this hotel-they are a credit to Gallaghers. Will definately return.
