“Well kept clean and Attentive Staff”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We stayed here for a one night stay this weekend. The hotel is in great condition with tasteful décor and notably excellently clean. I must say I was impressed and if you see my other reviews it takes a lot to impress me . First impressions were good with quick friendly receptionist - Cathy! The room was good with everything we could have wanted for in 4* and free WiFi throughout! We dined in the Restaurant at the front of the hotel but were disappointed in the starters which were surprisingly bland, in fairness they were quickly taken from the bill when settling up. Restaurant staff were very attentive and took time for a chat, Breakfast buffet had everything you could mention for a full fry including black and white pudding etc, here the staff were excellent and very attentive quickly resolving any minor issues with a quick chat and a smile

I must say we would recommend and stay here again as on this occasion we didn't try the spa which we certainly will the next time!

This is not a criticism but if I did have anything to note that would have increased the comfort of our stay I would ask the management consider installing wide screen LCD televisions and also consider bath robes for the rooms.

Otherwise this was one oft the best hotels I have stayed in for comfort, cleanliness, friendliness and efficiency of the staff.

Many Thanks

Room Tip: ask for a widescreen TV

Myself and my other half have just returned after a 2 night stay at the Villa Rose Hotel....We booked the Archway Suite which was beautiful with a large round bed and jacuzzi bath... Our room was spacious with a well stocked mini bar. We had a lovely relaxing experience, topped off by gorgeous food and friendly atmosphere.... Staff were helpful with Mr Gallen particularly ensuring we had a lovely stay..we most certainly will be back :-)

Room Tip: A Suite is highly recommended for that little extra treat ..... Beautiful !!

Spent a fabulous few hours here in the V Spa with my family and had a fantastic time! Therapists were very skilled and friendly. I had a back massage, facial and neck and shoulder massage after spending a relaxing hour in the thermal suite! Five stars Villa Rose, well done :-)

We stayed for a four day break in February 2014 and we were so impressed that we came back for another (sequence dancing) break on 11th - 14th May 2014. This was an organized break with everything laid on. The staff were very attentive, the food (we had dinner and breakfast) was first class. The room was very good indeed and the decor, cleanliness etc. was second to none. We have stayed in hotels throughout the world and, whilst it's a matter of "horses for courses" the Villa Rose would certainly be our choice for a weekend or short break away from home (we live in Country Antrim about ninety miles away). Whilst both of our recent stays were organised ones we would certainly go back for a one-off break. The Villa Rose is pretty central as far as trips are concerned - on one of our afternoons off from dancing we went shopping in Donegal Town and on another we drove over to Dunfanaghy and Falcarragh. I don't know how many stars the Villa Rose has but it's certainly first class.

Room Tip: we've had room 276 twice this year and it's very good indeed
