Beautiful hotel located on sea front. All staff very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms and in general the hotel really clean. Cannot comment on food other than breakfast and it was delicious. Extremely well set up for Covid restrictions. Fantastic views from hotel rooms and plenty of parking facilities. Enjoyed my early morning beach walk. Hope to be back here soon and explore Donegal a little more. Ann

Nice Hotel
This is nice hotel with nice decor and friendly staff, however if your looking for a top class menu this might be the place for you as the menu can be quite limited.
