Recent reviews

Fabulous 8.6 From 57 reviews

Very Good 8.0
We enjoyed our stay. Ideally placed for exploring Inishowen.The bed was comfortable and the room perfectly adequate. We ate in the bar where the staff were very attentive and friendly. Decided against the restaurant as we thought the room (where we had breakfast,) looked uninviting for a romantic dinner.
