I myself stayed at this establishment in August for 1 night. I was with a group of friends and we spent a lot of money here. Without going into full detail. The Manager is not a man of his word and made promises that he never had any intention of keeping. The hotel itself is mediocre and the food same....

Dear Withheld 1967, Following our email correspondence I see you have chosen Trip Advisor to tell half a story. Trip Advisor is an excellent forum for travellers to express their opinions however I am not sure how this review will benefit potential guests. The story as we both know is that items were removed from your car which was situated...

Booked in for three nights in sept from Thursday to Sunday. We asked for a sea view which was 20€ a night extra. This is not advertised on their web site. It was a lovely room, clean and bright. The breakfast was as basic as you can get. Fresh fruit was a bowl of grapefruit. In 2014 people are health...

Thank you for your review following your recent stay.

We stayed in Bundoran for one night. The hotel is fairly basic and you get what you are paying for. It is a large hotel attached to a big restaurant, bar and entertainment room. The room we stayed in was large with comfortable beds although the interior is fairly dated and the bathrooms probably need an upgrade. We found the...
