Beautiful Buncrana
Lovely hotel right on Lough Swilly. Beautiful views, clean rooms. Nice service and reasonable prices in the restaurant. Be careful when booking a family room. could not enter a room for 3, it only showed 2. They noted it for the hotel to see. However when we arrived they wanted to charge approx 50 euros more for an extra person. The manager came over and said to charge me 6 euros more. Either way it wasn't appropriate since my receipt said 89 euro. I will be addressing this when I get home.

One night stay.
Only ok. Requested a quiet room. But found it a bit noisy. Mostly because of bathroom usage on either side.

Lovely view
Very nice hotel, we seem to be unlucky in booking our stats always a wedding on. Just makes car parking a bit harder but these quests very very respectful. Beautiful breakfast. The gym is a bit dull, but a revised workout got it done. Lovely setting just a bit out of town but if you have a car it's not an issue. Nice stay
