We always love to return with our family to the Doonmore. It feels like coming home. Comfy beds. Rooms serviced daily and clean towels in great abundance. Fantastic breakfasts and generous portions of bar food. Great value kids portions too. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Ask them for anything and they will try to accommodate you. (For example ice pack for my son's ankle provided in the middle of a busy service). Bar cosy and buzzing every night with great traditional music. Lovely pints. Very well located for the nicest walks on the Island. Staff seem happy, which I always see as a good reflection on how a hotel is run. This isn't the poshest hotel we have stayed in, but it is the nicest and it's the one we keep coming back to. Thank you Andrew and Donna for such a warm welcome.

The hotel was very good, the room was ok, the shower was superb. However the best part of the stay was the staff. They were all very friendly and helpful. The food was superb. Andrew and his wife were very welcoming. It was a memorable holiday for all the right reasons.

Dear 2jennypat,

Thank you for your review and I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. Our food has received a lot of compliments, especially the sea food, but I agree, the homemade burger is a tasty meal!

Dear edmoore2017,
Thank you and it was a pleasure to have you and your family staying with us. It shows how a young couple like yourselves can thoroughly enjoy a stay in The Doonmore while your young children love it every bit as much. The magic of Murrays and the beauty of Bofin are inseparable.
I look forward to your next visit and I have no doubt there will be many more.
Thanks again for your lovely review.
Andrew

Thank you Andrew and team for your great hospitality. We has a really enjoyable stay. Food was good. Service great. Room tight enough for 2+2 but grand overall.
Trad session brilliant but starts bit late for younger kids to enjoy as much as possible.

Dear David N,

Thank you for your lovely review. I'm delighted that you enjoyed your visit so much. We love to make our guests feel welcomed and at home when staying with us, leaving all cares behind on the mainland for a few days.
We have music almost every night during the peak months of the summer, and every weekend at least during the early and late months of the season. 9:30 is the usual start time for the music and to be honest, it is intended more for the grown ups than children.
We like to see the kids out and about all day on their bikes or playing on the beaches, not in the bar at night. The music is timed to start for the grown ups to relax and enjoy after their evening meal but still early enough for older children interested in music to hear some before heading to bed.
Thank you again and I hope we see you all back again next year.
Regards,
Andrew
