Stayed for two nights as a weekend break to see derry and donegal area. The coastline of donegal is amazing and would recommend malin head very much. However the hotel was a little bit disapppointing. Good bits first. Front desk amd bar/lounge was very good. Comfy and relaxing with a good welcome that felt sincere. The breakfast was fantastic and was a real highlight of the stay with great locally sourced everything and wonderful tastes. The bad. Rooms (allegedly executive doubles) were a bit small and basically a standard with a dressing gown in it. Rooms were hot. Small window with no air con. So warm we had to sleep on top of duvet. Bathroom sink and bath had tide marks in (apart from that the bathroom was clean and the shower was great). Evening meal was ok, but nothing exciting.
Could have been so much more of an experience, but the little things let it down. And at this price point the little things are important.
Having said all that, the area is not festooned with amazing hotels, it is a poor area getting back on its feet after the troubles. And at no point did i feel i had to raise a complaint. Just feel that its just a rough diamond that needs a bit more polish.
