Myself and a friend stayed in room 1 at the back. Really quiet, spacious and spotlessly clean. The lady was super helpful and lovely (even providing taxi numbers when we got stuck on Sunday!). Breakfast in the fridge was sweet and just enough. The shower was unbelievable - really excellent water pressure. Definitely recommend and definitely will be back. Thank you.

We wanted a night away and chose the Central in Buncrana... The Hotel has set up a no contact entry system because of Covid restrictions. We got a text message the morning of our arrival with instructions on how to get in and where our room key would be. On arrival we opened the door, got our key and made our way to the room. We could see instantly that the hotel was very clean and well looked after. Our room was spacious, tidy and had everything we needed to make a comfortable stay... The hotel is situated right in the centre of Buncrana which is perfect for bars (When they reopen) walks on the beach, tours of the local area and lots more. The info pack in the room has all the details you'll need about local attractions, local services and whatever you need in the hotel itself. It was our first time staying in Buncrana and the town (Even with Covid restrictions) has plenty to offer. We'll definitely be back, and definitely recommend.

THEFT This was hands down is the worst hotel I've ever been too. Upon entering you'd think this would be a fancy hotel, but it was horrible.The room itself wasnt up to much.The place reeked of mildew, and the carpet had so much stains. The wifi, is RIDICULOUS didn’t work at all and the tv on the other hand was the same no signal at all . This wasn’t the problem though during our stay we had broken a small picture frame in the property in which I was willing to replace but it wasn’t good enough they tried to rip me of and charge me €150 for damage caused . I had forgot my car keys at the property in which the lady refused to hand over MY personal belongings which is stealing . So basically my car keys have been stolen by the owner of this property and now I’m been black mailed to pay €150 for my keys back ! Due to my keys been stolen I wasn’t able to carry out my job in the community and I am also the designated driver for my family as they cannot leave home due to COVID 19 ,therefore I’m the one has to carry out the shopping etc .Poor management and disgraceful behaviour!

Couldn't have asked for better accommodation...great price, great facilities, lovely clean room and a perfect location. Very cheap car parking also available just behind the location - i think only €1.40 per day. Literally can't fault it.

I chose the Central for its location. Within walking distance to many bars and a variety of restaurants. There was easy access to main road in and out of town. The pleasant surprise was the outstanding shower!

Can’t review as illness in the family caused us to cancel late. Still cost us full price at the discretion of the accommodation even though I contacted at the earliest opportunity.. No offer of transferring to another date or any other discount at a later date

Myself and three friends stayed at the central at the weekend. There was no hassle at all. We stayed in the family suite which was very clean,big and comfortable. There was a double bed, single bed and a sofa bed. There was a fridge with a continental breakfast inclusing milk and water. There was even a bottle opener. There was a great unsuite bathroom which had an amazing shower and even a hairdryer. It was located very conveniently with shops, pubs and restaurants very close. We all had a fantastic stay and will def return again

We really enjoyed our stay at The Central Accommodation, Conveniently located right on the main street. The newly refurbished room was spacious comfortable and warm & included all the amenities you could need. We chose a superior king room located on the second floor at the back of the building so very quiet. Check in and check out was hasslefree, hope to stay here again on our next trip

booked this at the last minute as we were let down by a hotel and there was no hassle at all. received a text immediately letting me know the very easy check in arrangements. The accommodation is on main st but it is very quiet and very clean. beds were very comfortable and really we couldn't fault anything. Continental breakfast was left in the fridge which was lovely. Definitely worth staying in

We stayed here for two nights at the weekend the room was fantastic. It's right on the main st and everything all around. There was breakfast in fridge which was great it consisted of cereal bars fruit scones Capri Sun jams and butters. There was also milk you just picked up your cereals at reception. The room was spotless and we had room with a view nobody bothered you they left you to get on with it. I will definitely be staying here again and will strongly recommend it to others.
