                It was quiet and comfortable beautiful beds and friendly

                We had to walk through the rain and wind to get from the room to the hotel for breakfast althought umbrellas were provided a covered would be much better.this would put me off going back for another visit

                9.6

                Beautiful location, excellent staff, luxury accommodation.

                The water in the swimming pool was very cold!

                Comfort, luxury, location, charm, character, experience

                Design and distance of walk way to room, Spa outside of hotel.

                10.0

                The people were very nice and the spa was relaxing

                The restaurant was overrated.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Wonderful hotel! Beautiful grounds and the hotel itself is fabulous - Rooms are huge, and the pool/spa area is very relaxing. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

                The restaurant is a little pricey, but we preferred to head into some resturants in Donegal town in any case!

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Staff were good humoured and very helpful. When my wife could not finish the almost perfect duck breast she ordered for dinner, they were very happy to make the remaining portion into a delicious sandwich for our travelling the following morning. Drawing room and bar are full of atmosphere. We noticed that the restaurant patrons included locals, a sign of its reputation.

                A small matter - really a question - why did the extra room in our suite not have the desk/ electronic facility as in most suites rather than in the bedroom where I had to wake my wife when using the computer in the morning.

              • Family with children
                10.0

                We eagerly anticipated our second visit to Lough Eske during the recent May Bank Holiday weekend and once again it lived up to our expectations in every way. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone of the staff from arrival at reception to the concierge to the restaurant and bar staff and indeed the housekeeping staff. The food is excellent and the atmosphere and service (attentive yet discreet) throughout is very conducive to a relaxing and luxurious break. In conclusion, this hotel has it all- Fantastic location, conscientious and friendly staff, sumptuous rooms with palatial bathrooms and five star food and drink. I look forward to a return visit in the near future.

              • Couple
                9.2

                We had a great stay, the castle is fab! The staff were excellent at thier jobs very professional. The food was excellent but the menu was a bit off putting with the way it was worded. Will definately be returning for another stay soon.

                Beautiful hotel in a tranquil setting and wonderful staff who helped make the most of our stay.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Luxury, food,

                Rooms over priced, 235 euros too expensive for Court Yard room, would only stay again if getting good deal or special occasion such as wedding.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Beautiful setting, fabulous location, excellent and very attentive staff, welcoming and very relaxing environment, a perfect venue to chill out and relax and recharge the old batteries.

              • Family with children
                6.6

                Picturesque location, large room, comfy beds, loved the bath room!

                Expensive. While not a big issue I thought cleanliness could be improved (looking at the shades on the lamps in the room).

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                Country location, close to Donegall town. Very friendly helpful staff, great food but pricey enough. Large comfortable rooms

              • Couple
                9.2

                Lovely hotel and staff. Breakfast was excellent and grounds are lovely too. We really enjoyed our stay n would return.

                Bathroom was really opulent but we didnt have hot water for bath n receptionist didnt seem overly concerned when i told her this when we were checking out - didnt even record it anywhere.

              • Couple
                9.2

                Efficient and friendly staff and beautiful front to the building. Luxury bedrooms and bathroom.

                Thought it was overpriced considering the size of the hotel. We thought it would be more exclusive and should have paid attention to the amount of rooms. It is a huge hotel and the rear carpark is like a supermarket car park.
