Dear Josephine M Your review is very much at odds to the feedback we received from the wedding you attended at the weekend past. Many of the guests at the wedding we knew personally and having spoken to many of these guests not one said anything remotely like what you state in your review. It is unfortunate that you did...

stayed in the hotel recently for a 2 night break with friends. The rooms were lovely and clean and had a fabulous view over the golf course and lough. the only problem was that there wasnt a walk in shower which caused difficulties. The breakfast was excellent, the evening meals were good apart from the turkey which was dried up...

We have stayed in this hotel a couple of times over the past 6 months as we recently got married in Buncrana and needed a base to stay. The location of the hotel is good and there is a lovely view from the breakfast room/dining room over Lough Swilly. A lot of the rooms will overlook, and are very close...

We had a lovely stay. Our rooms were spotless. Staff are very friendly. The breakfast was delicious. The sausages were so tasty I had three. The wheaten bread was also very nice. We did have to ask for coffee and tea as it wasn't offered but maybe this was just an oversight. Definitely a lovely scenic area.

This hotel is in a superb location with a golf course and the sea to the rear. We got a two night break deal over a weekend. This hotel is adequate, it is in need of a bit of a facelift, however it has good spa facilities and an adequate leisure centre ,but it is definitely a 3 star facility....
