    Beautiful hotel located on sea front. All staff very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms and in general the hotel really clean. Cannot comment on food other than breakfast and it was delicious. Extremely well set up for Covid restrictions. Fantastic views from hotel rooms and plenty of parking facilities. Enjoyed my early morning beach walk. Hope to be back here soon and explore Donegal a little more. Ann
