On the surface this is a more than suitable stop while touring Northern Ireland. Nice enough hotel, comfortable rooms, excellent staff.....so what could go wrong?.......this hotel must specialize in weddings because there was one on each of the nights (Fri& Sat) of our stay. The music and dancing went on well after 1 a.m then the after parties and "hallway...

We stayed there recently for a week-end. The phone in the room didn't work and when reception where told they didn't seem too concerned or bothered to get it fixed. The breakfast is pretty poor for standards these days pretty much full Irish or eggs different ways this could definitely improve with the times might take some inspiration from the...

The receptionist was very friendly as were Bella, Eileen, Douglas and of course Willly the bar man. I wouldn't advice the pizzas mind. However the steaks are...

Rooms are clean and basic with...

Thank you for your time in review. We appreciate your comments. Apologies about the mix up on check in, that should not have happened. To get the most from a visit to Inishowen a car or bicycle is certainly required!!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights B + B. We found the room comfortable and the breakfast was lovely, the restaurant setting had great views over the local coastline. All the staff were friendly and made us feel most welcome. We left a coat behind in the wardrobe and the staff kindly sent it back to us...

I am disappointed to read your review and I am more disappointed that I did not get the opportunity to discuss your experience with you prior to departure. I would expect any guest that was not happy with their stay to make that known on check out so that we could deal with it. The ocean view room that you...

The bridal suite was very clean, though traditional. The bathroom was immaculately clean. We dined in the bar of the hotel on both evenings. The food was...
