At least it's Central!

Awful view of a wall with an extractor fan just outside the bedroom window which was very noisy. The shower flooded the bathroom floor and the toilet flush handle fell off. The evening meal was appalling. We had Turkey & Ham which was really dry, and sausages and mash, again the mash was far too dry. The turkey was served without gravy for some reason and the sausages were served with gravy despite asking for pepper sauce! On a positive note the breakfasts were excellent and the bar staff very friendly. The Hotel is also very centrally located but I don't think it would be particularly suitable for folk with difficulty getting about - lots of stairs and uneven flooring. The Reception Staff could do with some training on the basics such as providing us with a wee bit of information on the Hotel on check in.

comfortable bed

this was the most comfortable bed we found in Ireland. the hotel is in the heart of the city - easy walking to everything - just around the corner from Donegal Castle - and a great base for exploring the smaller towns along the Atlantic Coast.

old fashioned and expensive

The Central Hotel, on the main street of Donegal town is certainly in the heart of the town. the rooms were very old fashioned, with no air conditioning, which meant that we had to leave the windows open to the noisy street. As a result, there was not much sleep to be had. the plus was the excellent staff who went above and beyond to help us solve problems of a broken car, This hotel desperately needs an update, but the staff couldn't be better. The cost was the equivalent of the Hilton in Dublin, but much less comfortable.

live weekend

My second visit to this hotel, I had an excellent weekend, Donegal live was an added bonus, weather fantastic, hotel is very central to all amenities, pool great. Staff very pleasant, although expected more local staff, slight problem with foreign staff understanding our comments, but overall great , and we will certainly return.

Great Location

The staff at the front desk were very welcoming, but we were missing a couple small items in the room that took 4 trips over 5 hours to get resolved. The facilities were very nice compared to other similar hotels throughout Ireland. Our room itself though had a view of a roof area that apparently becomes a smoking area at night. People were literally smoking right outside our window. We had to close the window and the curtains.
