“Great hotel for a stag.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

Stayed here for the Sea Sessions festival this year. It was also a friends stag weekend. Have to say I thought it was great. The festival was less than 5 minutes walk away, so you could head back to the hotel for food or a drink at any time if you wanted. The room was nice and clean. When you're used to going to festivals and sleeping in a tent this room seemed like heaven. There was about 20 of us on this stag and we are all in our mid thirties so it's not like we were going ape in the place or anything. But the staff we very accommodating to us even when some members of the party got "a bit excited" in the early hours. We ate in the bar every day and it was great. To be honest it was a great hotel for a lads weekend away but I would say that it might be a bit lively for families/elderly people. Oh and thanks to I think the girls name was Sonia for putting up with us for the weekend. See you next year!

booked double room, the room was clean, struggled to get the window open, very very old, they could do with gettin some new ones in, re decorating rooms as it is very old school. The food in the bar was nice, but the roof had a leak we had to move tables as the was a constant drip coming through the ceiling. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough as regards making sure everything was okay. Nothing much to do in the place, no music so we went down the street to great lively bar.

stayed here a while back and booked a family room , . The room we got was at the back of the hotel and had an adjoining room with 2 single beds the main room was very spacious and had a double bed at one end and a table and chairs and a settee , we also had a sea view the food served in the bar was very good and well priced to compete with all the other eating places in bundoran , would go back again only downside is they dont have a swimming pool but you can use the other hotels in the area for a small fee.

just back from overnight stay at this hotel my partner an i travel to bundoran often we enjoy the buzz there an of course the slots. our first time staying this hotel an maybe our last, there are definately better locations an cheaper rooms. we arrived there at 5 got seen to ok staff at front desk was pleasent enough got our key an went to room, it was average not very spacious an the decor was dated kind of felt like i was staying at my grans. we ate at the resturant food was nice huge portions, but when we tried to go into the bar we were being asked to pay 20 euros each? because of a euro surf weekend that they were taking part in, bit ridiculos if u ask me seeing that we were residents in the hotel surely we were entitled to drink at the bar of the hotel we were staying at without having to pay extra fees for this luxury.

Room Tip: pick a different hotel.

I write this review sitting in a very warm comfortable hotel room, Fortunately it's not the grand central hotel but the Raddison!!!!!! We got a groupon deal to stay for 3 nights at the grand central hotel, with our 10 week old and toddler, to find a COLD dated family room. We had to carry the pram up 3 different blocks of stairs ( all 5-10 steps) and down 2 in order to access our room which was shameful considering it was family accommodation!? we stayed the first night after layering up for bed and the next morning we headed for Sligo! I was disappointed because Bundoran has so much to offer in regards to the beach, amusements, dizzy dens, the farm and park etc but next time we'll not go by the pictures on a website which were clearly 10 years old but from word of mouth! I hope you find your experience a lot better I'd love to have liked it as I'm normally a positive individual. Staff however were very helpful & chatty!
