It was fine but not special. Clean enough, not especially comfortable. I think you could do better but hostess, Mrs. Rosie was very nice. It was just kind of spartan. I would not stay again.Nothing to be frightened of and we stayed during a horsebackriding trip but if you don't need to board a horse, I would stay elsewhere. Even the horses did not love.
Was staying in Donegal town and decided to call at Moorland Guesthouse for some reflexology. Just arrived without appointments but Rosie was free and was delighted to accommodate both of us with treatments straightaway. I had stayed here before so I knew what to expect from my treatment and I was not disappointed. It was an hour of total bliss in her beautiful treatment room. Afterwards I sat outside drinking tea and enjoying the tranquility of the moors while my friend had her treatment. It was the most peaceful afternoon I have had in a long time. Thank you Rosie and next time I am in Donegal I will call again.
This was a nice place near Donegal Bay but not in the touristy area like many of them. It was clean, but the beds were a little uncomfortable and there is only a single share TV and no WiFi. The couple running it are extremely nice and the food was great.....all-in-all a good experience
We were on a weeklong horse riding trip and the Moorland Guesthouse was the one we had to stay in on account of horse boarding. Having stayed at quite a few hotels and B & B's we had come to expect a certain standard. This place fell well below our expectations, the room was spartan, a small piece of used soap in the bathroom, no TV, no internet,no kettle for tea or coffee, no water bottles.The dinner consisting of salmon was overcooked, very overcooked. The profiteroles, ok. Only later we found out about the lounge, we were never informed but found out from other guests this was no loss. The host, Walter never introduced himself, nor did Rosie but t least we saw her! The breakfast was very poor, there was a shortage of Muesli which was substituted with corn flakes.Sorry folks, not our cup of tea.…
No coffee/tea upon arrival... none in room either...no water provided (tap water was brownish altho it tasted ok)... no soap in room, beds were miniature.... meal was merely adequate... Beautiful location altho no trails etc offered for walking if available.... no tv, no wifi....you need a book if you plan to stay..... Place has a lot of potential.... w energized owners
... kind of remote, but a very easy 15 minute drive into Donegal town through some pretty countryside. On one trip into town we actually saw a complete rainbow arch, actually hitting the ground on both sides on the flat meadow. No guarantee of that, of course, but it wouldn't be possible in the town itself. Rooms lack TV, but if you are busy in Donegal and venture out to Slieve League, you'll be tired enough to do without it and be ensured a peaceful night's sleep in the Irish countryside. In contrast to some of the other comments, we found the hosts to be extremely hospitable and friendly - no complaints!
Property situated in very remote area! Rooms clean but sparsely furnished! No teamaking facilities or televisions in rooms though clients have use of lounge! Tap water was very discoloured which we found offputting! Food average! Hostess very helpfull! Good place for horseriding & walking!
The only plus to my stay at the Moorland Guesthouse was that it was clean. The guesthouse is truly in the middle of nowhere and extremely inhospitable. The food was greasy and lacked taste. The rooms were dull and there were no tvs, not even in the 'lounge'. There was also no wi-fi. Furthermore, the male owner was very crass and made me feel unwelcome; I couldn't get out of the guesthouse soon enough.
The ' Moorland ' is located about 15 minute drive from Donegal Town. It was reasonably priced and breakfast was included. A three course evening meal was also available. The rooms were roomy and simply furnished in pine and very comfortable with a shower room attached. There was no TV or tea making facilities but we didn't find this a problem as it was such a delightful location. The view from the upstairs lounge was fantastic. We really enjoyed our stay and were made made very welcome. An excellent base for exploring, Donegal and Sligo.
Stayed here as a last minute break having been at a wedding in North Donegal. We travel a lot in Ireland and have experienced everything from B & Bs to 5* hotels. This was a disaster. The guest house gives a whole new meaning to the word 'Spartan'. The bedroom had none of the facilities we have come to expect from Irish hospitality, no kettle, no TV, no radio, just a lot of pine furniture (the smell of varnish was palpable in the morning). And then there was the 'Lounge'.......OK if you want to sit to attention and maintain an upright posture...more pine and two upolstered refugees from a decommissioned pub. Food ....of the overcooked canteen variety, my salmon had a sauce that was so yellow it looked radio active. breakfast very poor when compared to other B & Bs we have experienced. One other guest had ordered poached egg and that is exactly what she got...so over cooked it could have been used as the ball at Lansdowne Road .On the plus side pleasant staff/owners? wouldn't know as they didn't introduce themselves. On retiring to bed at a very early time...nothing else to do once you had been for a walk...you could hear all that was happening in adjoining rooms! The whole experience was so disappointing and certainly not value for money or a good example of a 3* guesthouse.…
