Reviewed 24 March 2014

Booked to stay for two nites only stayed the one... Staff were not very obliging to us at all. Room was dirty bed linen had stains all over no hot water or heating.. food was far to basic and not presented very well.. decor is outdated needs a re.vamp.. could do with updating the hotel and having a better welcoming.

We have stayed here on several occasions and have always been very happy.We are a party of 2 adults and 2 teenage children. The rooms are always clean and tidy with tea/coffee facilities. The staff are extremely friendly and willing to do anything for you. The food is first class and plenty of it. Delicious steaks and seafood as well as other grills. Cosy bar where food can be eaten or alternatively they have a lovely dining room. kids loved the free wifi. Nothing is a bother for them, would recommend to anyone. Give it a try you wont be disappointed!! :)

Considering how much I paid to stay here, this was fantastic value. You get what you pay for in life and hotels are no different. Pleasant staff, bed to sleep in and genuinely brilliant food. The steak I had on Saturday night was really delicious. Could do with a little modernising however.

We have always liked this hotel for a meal and the welcome and homely atmosphere. I had not eaten here for a couple of years as the last time it was very poor. I went back reluctantly as my wife was very fond of it over many years. I had beautiful fresh fish,potatoes,chips and veg. for €10. There seemed to be a lot of older locals in for their daily meal and it is a great service and a place for them to meet. There are a lot of cafes and hotels in Donegal who provide a reasonably priced meal daily for locals. I hope and am sure they make a profit but the meeting place they supply is invaluable.

We stayed at the hotel over 2 nights and it was an excellent base to explore Southwest Donegal. The staff are extremely helpful which is the standout aspect of the hotel. The room was clean and comfortable and had everything we wanted for the few days. Traditional music on a Thursday too which adds to the charm.

...it's ok. Like others we ended up over a very wet weekend using a living social voucher. Plus points are that the hotel is in the middle of a busy little town with a couple of other bars and places to eat. Staff are friendly and the family run aspect certainly shows through. Room is ample sized if a little cold. The breakfasts were very good but only the cooked Irish breakfast on...and so close to Killybegs I would have liked to have seen some kippers! It would be unfair to comment on the dinner as it was part of the deal, and it's never going to be great, though think decent canteen food and you're somewhere close.

My biggest gripe is the bar area...it is desperately depressing, badly lit, dated and hopelessly planned. I know Donegal has been losing bars and hotels over the years, but a small investment in this area of the hotel would reap benefits.

In general, not bad. Good stop over hotel for a business traveller on the road, or a few days as a tourist.
