“A place to enjoy”
Reviewed 24 July 2007

My wife and I have just returned home from a four-day stay at Ostan Loch Altan. The superb scenery around the Donegal Highlands is well known to us, but we hadn't actually spent a night there for many years. Around the hotel there is plenty of parking space. Our first impressions were very favourable - along with its change of name, the hotel was enlarged and completely transformed not many years ago.

We found our room 219 clean, bright and well-equipped, with plenty of space and no noise intruding. The bed was firmly comfortable. As the days passed, all too quickly, we discovered that the room was also well serviced.

The breakfasts were well-prepared from a varied menu, and on two evenings we returned to the hotel for bar meals - we had excellent food, again from a varied menu. Unusually, there are places outside the bar where you can eat if you prefer to.

Without exception the staff were courteous, friendly, and helpful. We had taken advantage of a mid-week discount, but looking back, we are still impressed that we could have such a good hotel experience for slightly under 40 Euro per day per person sharing. Our only hesitation in recommending Ostan Loch Altan to everybody is that some guests may have to be able to climb the stairs - we didn't find a lift.

  • Liked — The room - airy warm clean bright quiet comfortable well serviced good view
  • Disliked — no lift (though we didn't ask)

Myself and my young daughter spent 4 nights here over the June bank holiday weekend and it was absolutely fanastic. From the moment we entered the hotel could feel the friendly atmosphere and especially the warm reception for children. The staff could not have been any more welcoming and helpful from reception girls to bar and lounge staff to dining room staff. Rooms could do with a make over but we spent so little time there it did not matter. Breakfasts brillant and
bar food fanastic and very reasonably priced. Would definitely return as would my daughter who loved it - just a pity they do not have a swimming pool!!!

Location also fantastic - fab beaches a few minutes drive either side, Dunlewey pet farm and playground for children a few minutes drive away.
