The hotel is very busy at weekends as Bundoran is a popular resort. Close to the excellent beaches and other amenities it seems ideal for a family break. My room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good, bar meals were well prepared and the staff friendly and helpful. Fair value for money.

Situated in the centre of Main Street Bundoran, this hotel is perfect for a couples night away. Lovely large bedrooms with good work and reading space. Breakfast is served in a spacious dining room with good variety of food. Bar food is excellent with a really extensive menu. Lots of fish dishes so big plus for myself. Staff are friendly...

Went in on the advice of a customer who met us while reading the menu outside and wish i had walked on. Boiled bacon was way overcooked and told server who did nothing, sons pasta was so watery and husbands goujons were tasteless. For a hotel was way below par.

Staying B & B for two nights. Found the room clean,functional,perhaps lacking storage (sufficient draw space). Usual tea/coffee making facilities,nice flat screen TV. Bathroom could benefit by replacing the shower curtain with a glass screen. Clean room with wash/ shower gel provided in a hand dispenser. Windows could be opened, we had a view of the beach/coast. Staff very friendly...

While out for a drive we were looking for a light meal. The Grand Central looked inviting so we went for the bar food which was served in a comfortable area near to a huge fire. Both of us had fish and chips. The fish was of a good size, cooked in a crispy batter with mushy peas. Chips came...
