“You get what you pay for”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

We stayed at the Clanree on 28th April 2012. My travel companions had booked us in for a one night stay with dinner for 45 euro. On arrival there were no rooms ready, we paid by cash and did not get a receipt. The triple rooms which we were assigned were spacious and comfortable. The rooms were clean. There was nothing spectacular though about them. The televisions were old and so too the furniture. Like most hotel rooms I have stayed in lately - in dire need of an overhaul. We had a 2 course dinner as part of the deal. The food was just okay. One of my friends tried the curry pasta, unfortunately she was very ill a short time later. Not recommended.
The water in the hotel leaves alot to be desired. We arrived for breakfast at 9am, the fry was not hot. In fact it was merely luke warm. When we checked out the lady at reception had no record of us paying. Thankfully she took our word and we left. Won't be back in a hurry.

Myself and my Mum treated ourselves to a 2 night stay here from the 25 - 27th April after purchasing it through Groupon, and can honestly say that we had a lovely time.
After reading some of the past reviews we really didnt know what to expect but I really dont see how anyone can complain about it, yes the rooms are in parts dated but when you are only paying £57 for 2 people for 2 nights u can hardly complain!
Check in was completed swiftly and the receptionist was very pleasant and made sure we knew where everything was.
We had booked a twin smoking room which we were given. There was a bit of road noise but not much. Room was spacious with a double and a single bed. Bathroom was massive and everywhere was spotlessly clean. Tea and coffee were well stocked in the room and inside kettle very clean also! Tv was of a good size which had all the normal channels as well as a few sky channels.
We decided after a long journey there to opt for the early bird menu that night which cost €20 each. There was a good selection on this menu and the barman was able to help us decide. We enjoyed all 3 courses. The only thing i would say was we had quite a wait between our main and dessert as there didnt seem to be many staff on. I will also say that that they have a huge outdoor area outside for smokers which is covered with heat lamps and tables and chairs, something we dont see too much up north.
Had a great nights sleep beds were very comfy.
We had paid for breakfast when we checked in and it was lovely. Staff very pleasant and tables were cleared quickly.
Letterkenny is about 5 mins drive away
which we knew as my husband and myself stay in letterkenny about 4 times a year and taxi's can be contacted from the freephone in the reception of the hotel.
Ate in Pats on the Square on our 2nd night which was delicious.
Used the leisure facilities on our 2nd night which were really good.
All in all we had a lovely 2 days and hope to return to the Clanree in the near future.

Second stay @ this Hotel. Value was brilliant, 99 euro for dinner bnb
on their own website. Check in was fine. The room was average but I
knew this from previous visit, small double bed with very old fashioned
furnishings which seem to be prevelant in many Donegal Hotels.
However the bathroom was very good with nice dove liquid soap, etc.
The Bar area is spacious and has a good atmosphere, Staff were helpful
and there was a singer, though I don't like country music.
The restaurant was a let down, they brought me the wrong meal, and
by the time the right one was produced my wife had finished her food.
The food when it came was fine.
After I made a complaint we were compensated with a free drink each.
Didn't try the leisure suite, though it looks good.
Breakfast was not good, Staff serving the porridge looked like they
had suffered a bereavement. There was a long wait for toast, which meant
your hot food had went cold. There was no fresh fruit.
This place has massive potential but the rooms need modernising.
All in all I would return because of the brilliant value and the location near
some of the worlds nicest scenery.

We stayed at the Clanree Hotel 16 to 20th April 2012 travelling with Glenton Tours and it was good.As part of a tour our food was organised i.e set menu with little choice but we could have requested special diets when booking the tour. The main course was buffet but served by the chef and you could have portions to suit, I would have liked a salad bar and more varied veg.Breakfasts very good Husband loved the drycure thick bacon. We had a room at the back of the hotel away from the noisy road which was comfortable. Loved the swimming pool. Our only problem with this Hotel was the busy busy main road, nose to tail traffic flying down, a bit like the M1 in rush hour. There is no bus service into Letterkenny or anywhere and although there was a footpath by the road it was unpleasant walking along it. Most of the cars at about 8.30am seemed to be occupied by young women alone so no car share here so not very green. We tried to go for an early morning walk on the roads behind the Hotel only to find they were a rat run into Letterkenny

Room Tip: If your easily disturbed ask for a quiet roomat the back

I am only back from my 2 nite stay at this hotel which i really enjoyed. I am heavily pregnant with my 2nd child and had taken my 2 year old daughter with us. On arrival my daughter said how beautiful the hotel was to the amusement of the receptionist. Our check-in was quick and easy and the room was very spacious. The room was clean and comfy. Bathroom was massive and my hubby and daughter made full use of the swimming pool and loved it. I would definately come back with my next child aswell because it was very family friendly and the food in the bar was lovely and reasonably priced.
We also opted for room only and went across the road (which is very busy) to the local mace oposite the hotel which had a cafe, it was very well priced and suited us better with having a small child and me being pregnant i sometimes cant eat much first thing. All in all had a brilliant stay and would recommend the hotel for families and relaxing breaks.

Room Tip: If u like quiet get a room at back of hotel away from main rood at front of hotel.
