This is a very old and dated hotel, that added wallpaper to one wall and a throw pillow on the bed. It can make a picture look appealing. They did have large screen TVs in the room also. That said, the sheets on the beds were worn, the duvet cover seem was torn. The doors to the room are flimsy and noise travels loudly. I was shocked and disappointed when we checked in, and it didn't get better.
The only redeeming aspect was breakfast. Yummm. I wish I could have slept elsewhere and eaten there.

Room Tip: Be aware rooms are up a steep flight of stairs

We booked a business stay, while attending a local Foodie Event. We arrived and were greeted by a lovely hostess and given room 26, which was at the back of the building away from any road noise. the Room was large and well appointed with very comfortable beds and everything was impeccably clean. We were delighted that in addition to the normal ensuite ammenities, it also included face cloths.

The Breakfasts were wonderful, one morning I opted for the salmon and scrambled eggs, that were well seasoned and presented in a very professionally pleasing way, and the next morning I opted for the pancakes with maple and bacon, which was ultimately more than the sum of it's parts, Fantastic.

The owners are lovely people who are both warm and friendly. We would recommend this to anyone. We will be returning.

Chose to stay here for a wedding at Harvey's Point rather than the venue itself. 5 mins to town and 10 mins to wedding venue was the perfect location. Donegal manor exceeded my expectations, a friendly welcome followed by a cracking clean, well appointed room. Sofa, big TV and a super king size bed. The breakfast was quality with everything you could ask for plus home made cakes and preserves. All in all a top notch place to stay if you're visiting Donegal or going to a wedding at loch eske. The owners are just the nicest people.

Arrived wet and cold following a bike accident. We were welcomed in and were treated with such care and compassion we soon felt so much better. Hotel is spotlessly clean, rooms are spacious and have everything you need. Breakfast was a feast of freshly baked delights, home made preserves and excellent cooked full Irish. I cannot recommend this gem of a hotel highly enough. Such genuinely nice people.

Donegal Manor is a gem! Our room was spacious and clean and the selection of homemade breads at breakfast was incredible and so delicious! I wish I could sign up for their cooking school! The location is right off the main road to town. The innkeepers made us feel welcome and appreciated.
