Reviewed 21 June 2005

The hotel is spotless but sterile. No fun to be had. The lights in the bedroom made it feel like a hospital. And why build a hotel a mile outside of town without a sea view? A dreadful breakfast and poor service in the dining room. Very nice staff on reception though.

Having said that, at least it was clean and didn't smell of old smoke and grubby carpets - which is more than could be said for McNamara's in Moville.

Stayed here just after Easter 2005. Accomodation requested was for a family room actually got 2 ajoining rooms, really spacious up to date and spotless. Really surprised at least we had plenty of room and the kids enjoyed their own space. (Ages 5 and 9). Staff could not do enough for us, requested extra towels, nothing was a problem for them.

Would definitley stay here again and recommend it to families looking for that something special, as rooms were great.

I stayed at The Harbour Inn Hotel with my wife and two kids in July of this year. Is is only a new hotel and the rooms are very modern. My wife commented on the level of cleanliness maintained by the housekeefing staff as our room was spotless.
The staff were all lovely and we got to know many of them well by the end of our stay (a personal touch that is often lacking in this day and age!)
I am taking the time to write this review as I feel praise should be given where due, and I want to alert other tourists to the hotel.
All in all I was delighted with our stay and will definitely be staying there on my next trip to Buncrana.
