A recent one night stay here was a pleasure, the staff here are so enthusiatic and motivated they would put others in bigger hotels to shame.
We had dinner in Faras restaurant and it was terrific, the starters followed by perfectly cooked and served steaks were a delight.
This hotel has two sections, one fronting onto the main street and the newer one reached via a covered walkway which is where we stayed, my room was spacious with modern furniture and fittings, both it and the bathroom were spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was from hot bins but surprisingly the elements were all fresh and appetising, despite my abhorrence of breakfast served in that manner this was very good so maybe this hotel has found the solution to hot food in bins becoming practically inedible, if so well done.
The location of the hotel is not terrific from an aesthetics point of view but if you can ignore the immediate surroundings and you want top quality, fantastic staff, terrific food and all at a very reasonable cost you won't beat this hotel in this area in my opinion.
Plenty of free car parking and being located right in the centre of Ballybofey are more plus points, make sure to ring in advance for directions to the car park as it will save hassle trying to locate it.
Mention of and well done to Niamh and her managerss in the restaurant along with Cathy on reception, all of whom were fantastic and a credit to the hotel.
No problem in giving the Villa Rose a top recommendation.
