            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Reception and ground floor of hotel are well decorated

              Rooms are very tired and dark and are in need of refurbisment, particularly the bathroom

            • Older travelers
              5.8

              Reception staff were pleasant. Location suited our needs

              Room allocated was facing the front street, this was very busy up to 4am so noisy++ and not suitable for a mature couple. Also some blinds on these windows would be helpful.

            • Single
              10.0

              The staff were very friendly. The atmosphere in the hotel was fantastic. It was right in the centre of things, very convienient to everything.

            • Single
              8.2

              Too noisy, could not sleep until disco was over at 2am and fire alarm went off at 2am and 3am on second night.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              Location , friendliness ,breakfast superb stay

              Possibly could have done better rates for single rooms for a few days stay

            • Single
              7.8

              Good central location. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Lively bar with entertainment. Only stayed overnight and would go back again.

              It was very wet when we arrived and car parking was a bit far away from hotel.

            • Family with children
              9.6

              The helpfulness of the staff and the location were great. Also, it's really nice to have a carpark so close and easy to usel

              The mattresses were a bit old and not the most comfortable and for two of us vegetarians the breakfast eggs were not great; but everything else was wonderful.

            • Family with children
              9.0

              They had very nice fitness and pool facilities available. Hotel staff very pleasant and friendly.

              Unfortunately, there was a summer festival going on the night we stayed there and people were in the streeets right outside our window and in all the hallways of the hotel until 5 am. Very noisy and hard to sleep. I think this is not the usual circumstances. The hotel manager was very appologetic and did not charge us at all for our room for the night. I did not expect such generosity.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Loved it and have been visiting for short three or four night stays over several years.

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              Convenient for my trip

              Room needed good clean,hairclips on floor so room hadn't been hoovered bathroom ,grubby door water taps loose,very noisy at night,no room service when asked for cup tea and sandwich after ten was told to go to takeaway up the street.I Think if hotel was updated it would br brill.

            • Single
              7.4

              The Location was very good...right in the heart of Donegal Town. The staff were nice and I had a very large room.

              The toilet flush in my bedroom was very poor and it would take a number of flushes before it worked effectively. My room was on the 4th floor and there is only an elevator to the 3rd floor and then you have to tackle the stairs to the top.NOT great for older people or wheelchair users.

            • Couple
              10.0

              Ideal location 10 out of ten service is the best u could get nice modern rooms helpfull staff all in all cant wait to rebook hotel again

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              I arrived at 12.20pm & I asked if I could check in early (as I was attending a wedding) & I was accomodated by the hotel.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Loved the location (bang centre of town), the architecture (traditional Irish), the staff (friendly, helpful, professional), the pub (met nice people whilst singing along to Irish music), and the price was right!

              The breakfast is mass produced and by the very nature loses appeal and taste.

            • Couple
              6.6

              the hotel was welcoming and on first impressions very good value for money,

              however the beds in the rooms are past there sell by date and are in need of upgrading, i would return to the hotel once this problem was to be addressed.
