preached right on the beach front off a beautiful stretch of golden sand the location of the hotel couldn't get any better this coupled with a room with a sea view near guarantees views of stunning sunsets each evening. At first we thought the sound of the ventilation system was going to be intrusive until we realised it was the...

On arrival, even though we were there before check in time we were able to take our room .. The receptionist personally...

This is one of my favorite hotel in Donegal but I get the sensation this hotel is getting worst with the time. Hotel rooms desperately need a refresh as the floors are extremely noisy even if the beds are still good and comfortable. Food has become really mediocre and made me recently sick even if the reception couldn't not accept...

Ideal for a relaxing, romantic break. One night wasn't enough. We were surprised to have full view of the beach from our bedroom. Room was very clean and spacious although a little dated. Parts of the hotel seem modern and up to date and others dont. The charm of location definitely trumps any issues with hotel. We understood the hotel...

The hotel is nice enough and in nice location. We had 2 rooms booked for one night. First room we got moved due to flooded bathroom -after one shower the bath leaked out the bottom. The hotel acted promptly and upgraded to new room. In the 2nd room we booked( not the upgraded one) I had no heat as the...

Oh how we all wished we had more time to stay here. I had back trouble and would have loved to go to the Spa. Everything was perfect, the scenery overlooking Donegal Bay. Dining room was lovely as it too was situated to look over the Bay as one eats. The twilight, clouds and waves all brought an end to...

The Sandhouse is in a great location. I immediately started to unwind after arriving into our sea view room. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The fry the next morning was one of the best I've had in a while. I am knocking off one star only because the room we were in, whilst spotlessly clean, was shabby insofar...
