Reviewed 19 May 2014

We went for lunch here on Saturday to celebrate my sons first holy communion and had a terrific experience .From we arrived the management and staff were so welcoming and friendly.We sat down to a beautiful meal and I have to say it was excellent.We got more than enough to eat and was very reasonably priced.They even gave my son a card and ten euro for his communion.I have to say I was very impressed their attention to detail.They made our day .We will definetly return in the future.

Its all about the location here, convenience and not luxury - that said, its a warm friendly place. fantastic music in the bar both nights and average toasted sandwiches - guinness was very good though..breakfast was disappointing..lumpy porridge and no fruit available..only tinned grapefruit..rooms are basic but clean for sure.

An excellent hotel. Was warmly greeted by the lady at reception who introduced herself by name. A very clean welcoming hotel. Rooms immaculate, bathrooms too. Hotel warm. Service excellent and food second to none. The hotel is very central right in the middle of Donegal town, perfect for small to large groups. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Have stayed many times and never got a bad room

Dropped onto this place on a short-notice business trip. I was desperate for a bed and when my sec booked it and told me it was 39 euro B&B I wasn't expecting a lot. How wrong was I? Great clean room, everything worked, staff with faultless attention to customer satisfaction. I've payed 100 euro for chain hotels not a patch on this. If I think about it really hard I can find a downside - I had to park 200m away - no big deal right? Fantastic, I'll be back in April.

Beautiful hotel, brilliant staff. We enjoyed our stay. Right in the centre of town. It had loads of entertainment, disco upstairs, musicians in the bar, night club downstairs and there was even a wedding on also! Nice bar to chill out in also for a few early drinks or lunch! The breakfast was tasty also :-D highly recommended. We will definitely be back :-D
