Good but small
Wonderful staff and very helpful. Rooms were clean and neat. Only two negatives were no place for luggage. No luggage rack in the room, no dresser, only drawers were end table draws. So one has to put luggage on top of chairs to get to clothes. Second the shower is two and one half feet square. could hardly turn around in the shower.

Very Good8.0
Clean, comfortable and convenient
The room was clean and bright. The bed was clean, crisp and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was great. The breakfast was very tasty in a lovely restaurant. The location was perfect, good parking, walking distance to Donegal town, and great base for daily road trips around the county. The only negative I had was that the blinds on the window and door did not block out the light very well. Great place to stay.
