    • Coach trip to Donegal

      Reviewed 08 September 2019

      My husband and I stayed at this hotel for four nights on a coach trip from Scotland to Dongegal. When we arrived the Reception staff were very helpful and efficient and when we entered our room, we were absolutely delighted. It was a great size with a king size bed and also a single with plenty of drawers and hanging space and we had a wonderful view over the harbour and water. There were two comfortable chairs with a table and TV on the wall and the Bathroom was also a good size with a bath and overhead shower. There was a kettle with tea, coffee and biscuits, which is always a welcome gesture after a long day out or at any time. The only small thing we found in the room was the bedside lamps were not very bright if, like me, you liked a read in bed. The dining facilities were in the Ballroom and the tables were set out beautifully and the food was very good. Full range of cereals, fruits, fruit juices etc., and then hot breakfast including, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, bacon, sausage, black pudding, tomatoes, beans and fried potatoes and we enjoyed all of this. There was tea and coffee served to you and all types of bread and a toaster. The evening meals were also very good and we had the soup to start with most nights and they were delicious and the main course consisted of beef, chicken, turkey, fish and there was always a vegetarian option available, which I tried one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. The sweets were amazing with three little choices on the plate, usually different cheesecakes, profiteroles or sponge served with cream. The staff are lovely and very attentive so well done all the staff at the Central Hotel. There is a good size swimming pool, steam room and jacuzzi and I used the pool and steam room, unfortunately the jacuzzi was out of order when we were there, but I enjoyed my swim and the steam room. We had entertainment every night and it was a male singer every night and they usually sang Irish and Country and Western type songs and played guitar. The hotel could not be in a better location right in the Diamond and so handy for the shops and Castle etc. and a few minutes walk to the Harbour.

    • Family wedding

      Reviewed 03 September 2019

      We stayed at the weekend for 3 nights out stay was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and more than helpful .. We stayed for a family wedding on the day of the wedding the staff were first class and the food was so delicious i could not fault the hotel in any way... The pool is a bonus as we have three children to entertain who all enjoyed their stay in the cosy hotel rooms.

    • Disappointing

      Reviewed 31 August 2019

      First problem was we couldn't get parked even with a Disabled Badge. Nightmare!! The reception area was reasonably well decorated and receptionist was very business like but not very friendly. On arriving at our bedroom we were really shocked as decor was very bland and it was rather small with no seating area at all and bathroom was miniature. Nowhere to set toiletries etc This was quite a shock as ON THE WEBSITE the Bedrooms looked amazing - good size and comfy seats etc. To make matters worse the bed was like concrete and I finished up in the single bed which wasn't a lot better. Cleaning could also do with more thorough attention. To finish it off the breakfast was cold and the service was also very average. The decor in the Hotel is quite nice. For the price we paid, it was a complete rip-off!
