Called in for lunch today, they had lunch menu and a la carte menu, great choice to suit everyone. Was very busy due to good weather and mother's day weekend. The two staff members covering floor and bar were so friendly and laid back looking after everyone. Great food and service today and everytime I visit. Best In buncrana.

What a beautiful location - beautiful countryside and a beautiful harbour. The room was a very good size and was very clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was included in the room price and was great value. Dinner at night at the restaurant was also very good - very welcoming atmosphere. Plenty of car parking....

Lovely place to stay, the beds are so comfy and the breakfast is tasty. Would be a great stay in summer as it's just across from the beach and only a 5 min drive to town. The bar and restaurant are great to, really friendly staff and great food. Highly recommend!

Lovely place for food. Good quality food at reasonable prices. Very good early evening meal deals. No booking required unless a lot of people or a very popular time. The staff were excellent -attentive, efficient & friendly. I will definitely return.
