This is motel-style accommodation so you can park close to your room. The lovely lady on reception upgraded us to a beautiful room, large with plenty of space to unpack all our things. A bath (hooray!) and even a rubber bath mat without our having to ask. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet, even though it is close... More

The restaurant and bar on site provided excellent dinner choices at a very affordable price. The room price includes a full breakfast- which was delicious. Fresh produce... More

Great little hotel with excellent restaurant. Staff is friendly and rooms are awesome. Right across the street from the harbor and golf course. Love it. Not far from downtown Buncrana and the shopping district. Very convenient location.

We stayed here twice this month to attend weddings locally. On both occasions the rooms were clean & simple & the beds very comfortable. We found the staff very helpful & had a really good cooked breakfast on both occasions. Well placed for touring Inishowen.

Myself and my husband were here recently for 2 nights. The hotel itself is on a busy road but we had a room out the back so we didn't hear any traffic. The room was a good size, the bathroom spotless. Breakfast was lovely as was the bar food. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Buncrana. It's approximately... More
