Near to quite a few very good restaurants. Beside the beach great for lovely walks. The bedrooms could do with updating. Asked for a sea view room which...

My wife and I went on Sunday evening on a sudden impulse. We got a great deal of a 4 course dinner, bed and breakfast - E130 all in. This was our first visit to this hotel and certainly will not be our last. The hotel has a very picturesque setting and we were extremely fortunate to get a table...

However the floor in the ladies changing rooms was really unclean so that put us off a bit, bed room was ok but very dated. Food and staff in...

Everyone we came into contact with was pleasant and professional. This includes the front desk staff as well as housekeeping and the servers in the breakfast room and...

Excellent location, walking distance into Buncrana town, & by the sea. Note, due to the golf course, there is no direct access to the lovely beach, however beach is accessible just 2 minutes walk along the road. It is very pleasant to sit in the downstairs bar/restaurant watching the golfers play, against backdrop of lovely sea views. Bedroom was spacious,...

The staff were very young and not well trained. I ordered chips with my meal and was given mash, then when we ordered desserts we waited 20 minutes and had to call the waitress who...

Visited here with our 2 children aged 6 and 2. The hotel certainly is family friendly and the staff are lovely. However on our first nite we booked into the restaurant at 6pm. Our starters arrived promptly at around 6.30 but at 7.30 there was still no sign of our main courses. Having 2 very hungry and now tired young...
