Stayed at the hotel for a week while working in Letterkenny. The room was spacious and modern. The breakfast is served from 7.30 onwards which was a wee bit late for me (most hotels would serve from 6.30 / 7 onwards), however a good selection of hot and cold. Staff a very friendly and the hotel is spotless. The leisure area has a good size pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. Would recommend a stay here!-

This is a nice hotel but it's a taxi drive away from restaurants etc. Two restaurants Aileach which only seems to open if the hotel is busy (wasn't open while we were there), McGettigans - pub grub which was fine but as the menu doesn't really change could get boring. We booked an executive room which I was disappointed with as it resembled a double room in most hotels we have stayed in - couldn't justify the extra cost! Highlight of my visit??!!......Fuchsia beauty salon!! A small salon run privately by a lady called Margaret Rose, I had a manicure/pedicure, my husband had a back massage, while totally professional this lady was fab in advising us of all the local hotspots! The treatments were divine!! And I felt I had made a new friend - lovely lady, would highly recommend a visit! The staff in the hotel are really friendly and helpful and the hotel was very clean.

We stayed here for one night after a long day travelling. The hotel itself is excellent and the rooms are modern and spotless. Breakfast choice was probably the best I have seen in any hotel. The only downside was the road noise. Boy racers appear to use the road outside the hotel as a race track at weekends. We were kept awake by car racing until 3am.

Beautiful hotel. Room and public spaces were spotless. The Dining room is a joy to eat in. The food was tasteful, well prepared and service was excellent. Staff could not have been more helpful and all in all a very comfortable place to spend a few days. Henry.

Lovely hotel,we had an executive room it was brilliant. People complain about having to wear a swimming hat in the pool , considering the night mares that happened in lanzarote recently I think it's quite right. This is a lovely place to stay and we had a great time . Well done Clanree.

Great place. The first impression formed by the fantastic staircase, is very positive. It sweeps up and the massive chandelier above, adds to the effect. The rooms are large with clean washrooms. Unfortunately, the beds in our room were not comfortable. The bed springs in the middle, had sagged and this created problems at night. To further compound out problems, it was very noisy at night, with guests running about and shouting in the corridors. The door was unable to keep the noise out and many a time we woke up from slumber. These irritants aside, it is a good hotel.

We really enjoyed our facials from the welcoming Margaret - we left feeling refreshed and armed with many helpful tips which we will put to good use. She spared no effort! Well worth a visit. If you are time-pressed and need to get a gift, then a voucher will make an ideal present for all ages, male or female….Brid & Anna

We stayed here for the Bank Holiday at the end of May. Happened to fall on a Sunday. On looking at the website I found a fantastic DBB deal. Which you couldn't beat. Staff on arrival were excellent and accommodating. We managed to change rooms so we had interconnecting rooms. Shannon on Front desk was very helpful in sorting out the rooms for us. There was no problem with this. Food was great in the restaurant. We did have to move tables as the doors leading into the restaurant let in a daft. But again this wasn't a issue. 4 course meal was fantastic and even got glass of wine included in the price. Breakfast in the morning had a great variety of items for everyone available. The only fault I could make was that there was no conditioner provided in the bathrooms. Only shampoo. Which is a small item and didn't spoil the trip too much.

I booked this hotel for 2 nights after purchasing a Groupon- 2 nights for 2 with leisure access, glass of wine each and late checkout for £69 - BARGAIN! Booking was easy and staff friendly. On arrival we had a warm welcome, speedy check-in and all the info we needed for our stay. Our room was large and spacious, very clean and modern and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom was large with a walk-in shower. It also had underfloor and behind mirror heating which gave this hotel a special touch! We ate in McGettigans on our first night and took advantage of their specials offer and enjoyed our glass of wine and a delicious meal followed by cocktails at the bar. The staff again were extremely friendly and welcoming! Our breakfast was in a lovely function room. There was a good selection of food available and replenished regularly by friendly, attentive staff- cooked breakfast, continental style breakfast, cereals, pastries and plenty of juice. We used the leisure facilities a few times during our break making the most of the pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. The pool was a great size. The only (slight) negative would be the slightly green scum gathering around the sides- possibly due to chlorine. Otherwise, very clean and enjoyable- must wear swim hats as is the case with a lot of hotel pools these days. Again, staff were lovely. There was handy parking facilities at the hotel and there are shops across the road. It is a little noisy as it's situated between very busy main roads; however, we requested a room towards the back of the hotel which was slightly quieter. Just a 20 minute walk from Letterkenny town centre also. I would highly recommend this hotel as it is spacious, clean, modern and comfortable and the staff couldn't have made us feel more welcome- I will gladly return in the future.

We booked into clanree at the last minute for €60 each which included a 3 course dinner, room for one night & use of the pool. Could not fault a single thing. A+. Room was large and clean, food was good, staff were friendly and pool/sauna/jacuzzi were fantastic. Will definitely return.
