We travelled as part of a very large group and our party of 3 was extremely surprised by the size of the family room we booked. It was enormous - 2 separate rooms - one double and one twin. Beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spotless. We didn't have dinner and unfortunately the staff were unable to cope...

Stayed here during the week just past, we were very impressed with the large room and bathroom. The room was tidy and cosy and in a separate area unlike a traditional hotel. The food was nice in the restaurant and unfortunately the bar was closed for renovations. It is well located for traveling around the Buncrana area.
