Convenient central location

Very comfortable room, and good breakfast buffet. Breakfast, however, did not start at 7.30am. The restaurant doors were locked until 7.37am with no information given.

Worst hotel

We were over in Donegal for a family wedding and had fond memories of the Abbey Hotel. We were unaware that the hotel was being refurbished so the hotel was noisy with work being carried out from 8am throughout the day!! I found the restaurant staff to be pleasant and efficient but the quality of the breakfast was poor. On arrival a smile from the receptionist would not have gone amiss. I can understand why the refurbishment is going ahead as the hotel is very tired looking but still accepting guests - I don't think so!!!
