“Amazingly friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Went with my wife and son just after easter. It was a lovely sunny few days and we booked into the hotel. The owner/manager heard we inquired if our room was sea view, it wasnt, but after a few mins moved us up to the top floor looking out over the atlantic ocean for no extra charge. The room was large and clean and comfortable with the most amazing view. The breakfasts were delicious and worth getting up early for. Very friendly and helpful staff and the hotel has a strong family feeling to it.

The only problem we had was leaving after a few days, we will definitely be back.

This is a lovely family run hotel with beautiful spacious rooms and fragrant bedding, delicious freshly prepared breakfast tailored to each individual guest, and warm friendly staff. We were kindly upgraded to an ocean view room and our little boy was treated like a little king by the staff. We enjoyed a meal at the bistro, our five year old declared the smoked chicken tagliatelle as the most delicious meal on his holiday!

Stayed here on the Donegal leg of our trip. Recommended by friends, did'nt disappoint. Food in Bistro great, wine and drinks selection excellent. Service professional and very friendly and we had a ball!!
Freshly cooked breakfast too much for me but hubby delighted.
Free WiFi throughout hotel. Beautiful spacious seaview room at no extra cost, thanks to Gerry at reception. Room comfortable and very clean. We'll be back!!!!

Room Tip: Ask for the seaview rooms

Have stayed in Fitzgeralds the last 2 years during weekend of the Cara Bundoran Run.The hotel I find comfortable and the cuisine and breakfast enjoyable .There is always a reason why patrons return to such establishments .Looking forward to returning again .

Stayed here for a couple of nights with my wife, and had a lovely front room with sea view, and with the aid of a bay window could see along the street in both directions. Breakfast was excellent and staff were willing to "mix and match" from regular listed menu items. Bathroom was clean and shower hot; bedroom was clean but decor is due a revamp. Quiet at night time as there is (thankfully) no disco downstairs. Didn't get to use the restaurant as we had outside bookings for both nights, but would be happy to go back for that purpose. A good place for a rest if you want to find good family accomodation, and all in all reasonable value for money.

Room Tip: Front rooms have sea view, but downside is moderate noise from street.

Having recently stayed at this hotel I was very disappointed with the whole experience.
When we arrived at the hotel,no receptionist at the desk ,had to ring a call bell and wait for a little old lady who asked us what we wanted.
Then an older man arrived and showed us to our room,
on the way he showed us the tea&coffe vending machine.
The fire exits in my opion would have been more important,
When we got to our room on the first floor,we were asked if we wanted more pillows.
I said no we were fine with one each.
Getting the door open with the card we were provided with was an experience in itself
The bed was rock hard.
Room smelly and décor must be 30 years old,carpet smelly fusty
We put on the Tv to watch the news while we were getting ready to go out.
No RTE in 2013 on the Tv,we mentioned at check out and the lady told us it was because the location was near NI
what a joke.
we are just back from Marbella and could get all the irish channelsin the apartment we stayed.
View from the room wasn't sea view but a view of the back yard&carpark
No safe in the room
This is not a hotel
Its a guest house with a bar
It is over priced at 90 euro for a Saturday night.

We were not surprised to receive a review from this guest. At checkout, guest, while mentioning the TV as her only complaint, had alerted the Receptionist, in an exceptionally detailed and opinionated manner. to the unrestricted facility provided on Trip Advisor to make comments later.
Notwithstanding that she had voiced only a minor complaint in respect of her brief stay her attitude alarmed the Receptionist and, as it turned out, with good reason. We do not understand her motivation other than it may have been an ego trip exercise of power or, perhaps, that she had hoped to be offered an incentive not to review. In the event her review has turned out to be dismissive, inaccurate and so mean spirited as to border on being malicious. In response, the following matters deserve mention:
-a bell at reception is a common feature in many small hotels;
-senior staff members disliked the ageist and offensive comments made against the checkin personnel; insulting remarks have no place in any review and we are surprised that Trip Advisor has allowed these to stand;
-teas and coffees are free on a self-service basis; these are not dispensed via a vending machine;
-we do not recognise the room condition as described in such scornful and untruthful detail by guest;
-all Fire exits are clearly marked in rooms, on the corridors and on the stairwell; instructions, in three languages, are displayed in the rooms and on the Hotel lift;
-if the TV problem had been mentioned prior to checkout it would have been rectified within minutes;
-guest had the option to book a seaview room and did not do so;
-room safes are not a requirement at our Hotel grade;
-our breakfast selection compares favourably with other Hotels of our grade and is freshly cooked to order;
-our Hotel prices are competitive;
-we make every effort to deal promptly with guests' concerns once we are notified;
obviously, this is not usually possible at or post checkout.

Had dinner in this resturant on Saturday night omg . It was recommended by friends of ours and boy was it good . On entering the hotel it was so cosy . The bar area had a wonderful atmosphere about it and there was a great buzz about the place . Out meal was just the last word . I have eaten in alot of resturants and bundoran was always a place I bypassed but not anymore . Bistro where have you been . The duck starter was beautiful but leave it to my mains of lamb shank the most succulent piece of meat I ever did taste . My husband had the mushrooms which he enjoyed alot as did he his mains of medium to well done steak with all the trimming's . We did have a look at the dessert menu but there just wasnt any room left . Well done to the staff and management . We will be definitely recommending this fine resturant and we look forward to dining with you again in october .
