This charming hotel is situated overlooking the Diamond area in the centre of Donegal Town. We arrived here with Canadian relatives to stay one night while showing them the sights of Donegal. While booking the room over the phone the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. This positive attitude continued when we checked in the following day. The rooms we were given were large and well-equipped with lots of storage space. The bathroom had a bath and an in-bath shower facility although my wife found the shower a bit slippery - perhaps supplying a non-slip bathmat as standard would help. There was an iron store in the corridor near our room for guests' use which contained an iron and ironing board - this seems a good idea to me rather than cluttering up the room!
Breakfast was very good with a range of cereals (including porridge) and fruit juices. I would have liked a better selection of fresh/tinned fruit as well rather than just grapefruit.
There was a range of freshly cooked hot items served by a pleasant waitress who gave large helpings.
The hotel also offers free wifi - an essential for the modern traveller. The hotel has little parking on-site, but they do give free parking at an extensive public carpark 100 metres from the hotel.
Overall this hotel is easy to recommend. It has a central location, the rooms are good, the staff are friendly, the food is very good and the prices are very reasonable. What's not to like!!
