there was a very relaxed feeling, staff were very helpful to our needs. rooms were spacey and clean, over all would go back to bayview at a future date. no
The thing that I liked best was the day that I left. No smoking room requested, given a smoking room, one room no heat requested staff to help turn on heat for a disabled person, request ignored completely, had to request help again late on that evening with a heater offered for room, ridiculous in this day and age, cold breakfast given to room on first morning, no facilities offered by staff in hotel, staff moaning about delivering drinks to room.
Nice location in the middle of Killysbeg. Free Wi-fi in the room. Awful value. The bed spreads in the room were seriously worn and actually had small holes along the top sides. The room and furniture looked old. Be sure to get a room with a nice view. Unfortunately, we didn’t have a harbor view. Instead, when the curtains were pulled apart all we saw was a clear view through a window showing guests walking back and forth down a corridor in the hotel.
the toilet extract fan was very noisy during the night even though we had switched our room off
The staff were friendly, food good, bar atmosphere excellent and location excellent.
The staff was great. They were helpful and friendly. The food was good as well. Best wings I've had since coming over to Ireland from America. Our room, although clean, was old and tired. The room we were in could stand some updating, new carpet, bed spread, etc. The tub had a horrid gash in it. Windows needed cleaning on the inside.
Leisure suite including pool, sauna etc. Good breakfast. Excellent location
The food and drink was very nice. The staff were also helpful. The man who served us our food in the bar was a delight.
the friendleness of the staff and locals the food was nice ,it was homely but not gourmet or much variety
Downtown Killybegs location is excellent. Tour buses use this as an overnight stay and the bar/restaurant serves very good bar food...nothing fancy. No complaint, but it seems to be getting a little worn around the edges. We hear a new owner has taken over.....it needs sprucing up. I've stayed at the Tara Hotel across the street and will continue to do so.
Excellent staff, very friendly. Nice comfortable room, clean, good view of harbour. Value for money. Killybegs in november is not a tourist hotspot
Spacious room with balcony and great views. Breakfast was excellent as was hotel restaurant. Nothing
the thing i liked most was the staff they were excellent and very friendly and the hotel and food was fantastic
The views were spectacular, staff friendly,hotel spotless and the dining mouthwatering None
It was good and clean and where I wanted to stay in the harbour
Staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. The location, overlooking the harbour was lovely. It may have been noisy during the day, but at night it was quiet and I had undisturbed sleep. Good breakfast. There is no free internet connecton as advertised: they charge 10 euros a night which is, frankly, antedeluvian. In any case, I couldn't get a connecton in my room, so took my computer to the hotel down the road where there is free wifi throughout.
View over the harbor . Had to complain twice to keep the heating on.
execellent value for money
Staff was very kind, very good breakfast.
location and proximity to Sliebh Laoig cliffs. Food and service could be recommended to anyone visiting the locality There was a noise from some type of cooling machienry during the full night which was probably something to do with very nearby fish factory
Great hosts; comfortable bed in spacious room; wonderful breakfast. Also appreciated local knowledge & map of regional highlights. Definitely recommend. No
It was certainly close to town ! Maybe a little too close. It was not a 'value add.' In other words, not what I expected for the cost, especially in comparison to other similarly priced B and B's. This is not a 'home' B and B, but more like a hotel. It was not as clean as it should be.
The setting of the castle is breathtaking when you drive up,and the friendlyness of all staff was outstanding, and our room was luxurious.We cant wait to go back!!!!!!!!!! Nothing.
Bed was luxurious, bathroom was exquisite, staff excellent their service was second to none, garden and grounds gorgeous Food from lounge bar dissapointing
the hotel was very attentitave to us but not to the point of being invasive which we have experienced elsewhere. the room we were given had a disabled bathroom and shortly after we checked in we were offered a room change. a very pleasant stay and will definitely return. unfortunately we were dissappointed with the main course of our meal. However again no complaints about the staff or the ambiance.
Fantastic staff, fantastic food, fantastic room.
Friendly, helpful staff in all areas. Excellent food and wine. Comfort and general peacefulness. Overall very high quality and nothing pretentious. Brief disturbance by one noisy guest in the middle of the night
The live music provided by Mark Langan, the quality of the martinis and the excellent array of different foods for breakfast. Everything was great, although 300 euro was pretty steep for the room! The bar staff are great but service was a little slow at times.
The peace and quiet of the situation, first time I really enjoyed staying around an hotel, very relaxed and the lounges and grounds wonderful Just felt that in the dining room at dinner, the dining room was very busy but either the staff were not experienced enough or they do not have agood system for serving the guests. Had to ask four times for a glass of wine, despite this am really looking forward to our next visit to Solis.
Size of the room especially the bathroom. Attention to detail such as up-to-date copies of magazines, herbal tea as well as black, light in wardrobe and two wash hand basins in the bathroom. There wasn't music or live entertainment in the bars any of the three nights that I stayed there, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The hotel was a bit too quiet for a Saturday night!
We went there to get engaged. They gave us champagne, wrote congratulations on my desert dish & put rose petals all over the room. It just made our stay so special.
The staff were all very helpful without being over attentive. The grounds of the hotel were stunning and very peaceful
The castle was amazing. It looks recently renovated so it doesn't have that spooky feel. There isn't much to do on the grounds except relax and enjoy the scenery which is perfect for a romantic night's stay. Just a note- when booking the castle, not all rooms are in the castle itself. You may be in the quarters in the back.
this hotel is good for the purpose of our visit - viz a family wedding. The whole reception and subsequent fesivities went almost flawlessly, and all without exception enjoyed the experience. would come again if we ever needed to visit that part of the world again.
The staff and service at the hotel was excellent. The hotel is a well furnished and comfortable hotel and the location is excellent. I attended for a wedding and the management of the wedding itself was first class. The hotel was very cold. There did not seem to be adequate heating provided as the rooms and indeed the function room we were in was very cold. Every one who was staying there commented on this. Taking into account the time of year this made my stay very uncomfortable as was cold and looked forward to going home.
Very nice food and staff Not enough towels in the room, food a little expensive.
Staff were friendly and extremely helpful and polite
comfort, friendliness of staff, good service. and excellent food,as usual.
nice athmosphere, nice comfortable, modern surroundings
The food. The leisure centre was shabby:the first day the pool water was very cold and the shower outside the steam room didn't work. Steam room very shabby - broken lights, broken seat, dangling black strip from ceiling. Two staff cleaned and hosed while I was in the pool after bfast - cleaning fluid came into pool. Better if cleaning is done outside leisure centre opening times. Stafff in leisure c poorly dressed.
It's a large full service hotel which is bit of a surprise for Ireland and yet it still manages to feel like an inn. Our double/double room was large and quiet. Full Irish breakfast is included, there is a pool and restaurant on premise. This is not something we didn't like but a heads up to other travelers. We stayed one night, a Friday in July. I called the hotel a couple of weeks in advance to ask if we needed a dinner reservation to eat there and the person told me no. When we arrived the restaurant was nearly full and they asked if we had a booking! Fortunately they were able to fit us in.
friendliness of staff and cleanliness
Food was good. Facilities were also good The bed was hard and uncomfortable
Nice location, VG room and food Diffident reception. Ringing phones and the computer monitor came ahead of me. Over 2 hours to get a bath plug and no apology,
Central location, rooms were clean and spacious. Good night out had in the bars!
Very comfortable room and a friendly, efficient staff. Shower control was a bit shaky.
Convenient location, good sized comfortable, clean room When booking, I requested a room away from the bar and nightclub yet was accomodated directly above the disco. Disco every night until 2am made it impossible to sleep. Nobody on reception to answer the phone at night
loved use of swimming pool
Staff very friendly. Spacious, Clean & Warm Rooms. Excellent value for money. Centre of Town. Will definitely be staying here again. No WiFi available in hotel
Nice room with a jacuzzi bath Very soft mattress. Not a great choice for breakfast and I hate buffets. Why not cook it fresh for each person. We are being charged enough!!!
Right in the town centre Extremely busy hotel would not recommend to someone looking for a relaxed time
The hotel is central to everywhere, staff are friendly and helpful
The location of the hotel was so convenient and the use of the next door hotel's leisure facilities was a plus.
The food was excellent. Large bathroom. Centrally located. The beds were old and sagged in the middle.
The room has a nice look and was very clean had a ground-level room and could hear the people above me all night. I was next to the exterior stairs as well and they make quite a racket.
Friendly, helpful staff. Within walking distance of some of the attractions we wanted to see. Small but cozy room. Thin walls - could hear people laughing next door. Bed was a bit on the harder side (personal taste though, not the establishment's fault).
i liked everything a wonderful experience. No
The standard of food and the welcoming staff. Nothing
Location is great but hotel is very old and needs bit of repair and it's not worth that much money
Swimming pool Rooms very cold and not worth €150 would not stay there again
the surrounding countryside I have written a letter of complaint to the hotel
Not much hotel to old and ran down , staff where unpleasant and one with glasses was annoying . Way over priced 150 for one night a real joke .
The hotel location was good. Hotel was a bit 'aged' but still fine
Good size room, great views, clean, good bathroom facilities Nothing
We had booked to attend an Elvis weekend that was on in the hotel so staying in the hotel was brilliant
The room and breakfast was very good, the staff were very helpful (in particular the receptionist on the day of my check out -she was really under pressure but remained cheerful and patient).
Everything! We have already given information to other friends!
Brilliant location,good selection of quailty food, lovely beach.with weather chilly outside the rooms were very warm.good friendly service. I would expect the price of the room to be a bit more competitive given the time of year.
I liked the cosiness of it, the view from the window, access to the beach. Breakfast also very nice and staff were very efficient Nothing I didn't like really. Would have been nice to have tea and coffee making facilities in the room
good areas to relax in during the day, great atmosphere. The conservatory and balcony were really good
friendly and efficient staff, good food and a view to die for
The welcome by the recptionist was second to none.She could not do enough to make our stay pleasureable No tea making facilities
Location is superb - right on the beach. Our room was lovely - superior sea view double room. Meal in the restaurant was very good. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Accommodation and meal were both good value for money. I thought the bar facilities could be better. We were looking for somewhere to have a dink and relax after our meal. In the foyer there were some lovely chairs seats by the fire but no drinks are allowed in that area for some reason. The lounge was very quiet and I felt not wholly enviting. After some time we realised that you could go in behind the counter in the lounge to go through to the Surfer's Bar. That was a bit of a strange setup and not very obvious that there was another bar through there! The Surfer's Bar was a bit if craic and had a bit of atmosphere. But I did feel that with all the space in the hotel it would be nice if there was a nice lounge area or some comfortable couches to lounge about in after our lovely meal.
A most relaxing break, the food was excellent.
Great view of sea from bedroom - very relaxed - excellent breakfast and relatively quiet. Arrived too late to have evening meal
The strand is great for walks, hotel is really splendid.
staff were generally helpful room cold and hard to find and very very dated
Log fires in reception and christmas decorations.
Great location and all the Facilities were first class
The food in the bistro was poor, a chicken maryland dish should consist of more that 2 ingrediants.
The ball room is nice for weddings. The rooms are very smoky
Leisurely atmosphere and friendliness of staff Given dinner vouchers on arrival a little more information on what we could have on these vouchers and the difference in the bistro and dining room
it was very central in ballybofey yes we were placed in the older part of this hotel and as we were at a wedding function in the new part it was almost impossible to find my room and the rooms were not very well signposted. hotel not well sign posted from the town.
The freindly staff and the swimming pool. they were great! Our room looked out onto a roof and there was a very noisy fan/air conditioning vent which also didnt smell very nice.
The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the generak ambience of the hotel was warm and welcoming. The late night nightclub generated a high noise level and both the room windows had to be kept closed (the room was above the club courtyard area.
the room and bathroom. welcome on checking in. view over lough at breakfast. no entertainment at nite.
The food in the main resturant was excellent.Bar food was good. I stayed in courtyard room which was not in keeping with the overall standard of this hotel.The room was old fashioned and fusty.
I loved this Hotel as it was pure luxury all the way. The bed rooms are out of this world and there is no need to ask for any thing else Nothing
Beautiful landscape. Stayed in the least expensive Courtyard rooms, but feel they are best as excellent view of Lough Eske right outside room door. Request a room facing Lough. Would have stayed for longer if I could have. N/A
good food plenty of space eg residents lounge lack of sports and swimming facilities lack of radio service on tv even thoughit its availability was advetised
Hotel room -first class Restaurant was excellent but service was terrible.
I loved the whole set up, the surroundings, the staff, the food, it was just what we needed, complete relaxation. Next time I hope to stay in the fabulous Executive Suite which has to be seen to be believed. N/A
Luxurious rooms and warm friendly atmosphere. Staff very helpful and friendly also. Location and setting very special. We had booked a family room and although given a free upgrade we did not find sufficient bed space for 4 people. two beds in our room that were both small doubles and it really was a tight squeeze.
We were upgraded to an executive room and it was beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and the service was great.
Our little poece of heaven and indulgence in a totally peaceful environment. Everytime we go back it jus sems to be better and better. Staff are so friendly and atmosphere so peaceful. If the world was ending next week this is where i'd like to spend my last days.
I was very happy with my room this time, it was clean, quiet and great valu for money, and the holyrood is a great location as it's only 1min away from the slots!!! lol
The room was spacious, with a couch as well. The staff were helpful with recommendations for places to eat. The bed linen needs changing - the sheets were very coarse and the blankets very scratchy. There was no remote for the TV in the room, and no WiFi available within the hotel. Overall, not a bad hotel but just ordinary with no added extras, I wouldn't rush back.
I did not like the food and I did not like the smell in the bar as it was of cooked cabbage.
It was nice to stay mid week for a good price, good to get to use the swimming pool, Breakfast good, Was very quiet not many staying at that time of year, no Dinner available at bar, Dinner not as good as hoped.
Food was nice, hotel clean, good entertainment When we arrived, the Hotel was doublebooked so we were told that we had to stay in The Great Northern Hotel for one of the nights then pack up and come down to the Holyrood for our last nite of out stay Generally most of the staff were helpfull with the excption of one of the girls on Reception, who was very rude...
Spacious rooms and bathrooms, comfortable and good bed Bad tv reception, very few tv channels and wireless internet was on in function.
The room was decorated very modern and had a hairdryer and television which was good. The spa was excellent, best part of the trip. Food in bar nice also.
Very little The room we stayed in wasn't clean, the bathroom had mould growing on the grouting, and it was noisy. Breakfast in the hotel was adequate, however queueing for up to 20 mins outside the dining room just to get breakfast was unacceptable. The evening meal (which was part of our package) was poor. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
The hotel was very comfortable and friendly. I really enjoyed my stay Unfortunately the dining room during evening meal was a wee bit hectic
Location of hotel No iron or fridge in the room and when requested it was not provided.
central to the town
We enjoyed or stay. relaxing, dancing, going for walks,the amusements.value for money Maybe the T.V. Needs to be upgraded
Lovely view, great location Very poor check in. Took over an hour with no line. Had to have the keys done 3x. Poorly trained desk staff.
nice and the front desk very nice
central to most facilties breakfast was very disorganized, we had to clear away dirty dishes ourselves before using tables
This is an excellent Hotel. Clean and well run with nice friendly staff.Bar food was good and breakfast was excellent.I though overall it was excellent value for money.Enjoyed our visit as did the couple who were travelling with us on our way to a wedding in Co Fermanagh.Would like to visit again sometime. Feeding the meter for the car parking is a little bit of an inconvenience.
Rooms v comfortable .Cosy bar Excellent location. Good value
No atmosphere Food and service
My stay at the Grand Central Hotel was brilliant and I couldn't have asked for better service! I thought there should have a been a bigger car park as we had to pay to park it somewhere else
very friendly staff room and water allways warm the room smelt of smoke and lingered on a bit but that not the staff fault
Breakfast was a bit overdone and I have tasted better
On arrival, changed the room to accommodate a disabled guest
Rooms were to hot & heating could not be regulated Seemed to be short on staff, which left breakfast a free for all
great location, good breakfast booked non smoking and got smoking
The great view from the bedroom No fruit for breakfast
Our brealfast was diabolical. cold we pointed this out to the staff but it was liitle better when returned. The rashers were like leather, no fresh fruit, no yoghurt very poor for the price. We were not told about the short cut through the leisure facility to the car park. It was an inconvienence.
Bedrooms outdated. No heat in bathroom. Tiles around shower area in bathroom - grout needs cleaning - build up of soap, grime etc. No choice for breakfast - only one option full cooked breakfast. Hotel is not very good for older guests, whilst it does have a lift, there are lots of steps in corridors, reception area to get to dining/function room, steps to bar areas. Access to hotel is difficult - no real drop off area, parking at the back is restricted and once again lots of steps to get into the hotel from parking area.
Clean and comfortable. Staff most helpful. Good central location for touring Donegal county and beyond. Breakfast, although adequate and nicely presented, was not served hot. Most items were cold at time of serving and this appears to be an ongoing problem. (I overheard others making similar comment).
it was very relaxing
the friendliness of the majority of your staff whiles respecting my privacy. A special thanks to your restaurant staff. Their willingness to prepare a different breakfast for me. being directed to the restaurant when I asked for coffee in the lounge and when I asked if room service could serve coffee in my room
