Had stayed here many time this time not so good not enough bar staff on to take orders for food had to wait long time it was same for trying to get a drink also fan in my room very noisy as my child sleeps with light on and the other lights when you turned one of they all went of also when we were in the pool they closed of shallow end and middle of pool for swimming lessons which is very dangerous especially for anyone who does not swim very disappointed with hotel

As previously we enjoyed our time in the mount errigal. Staff were friendlyand always speak to you, in particular the excellent barmen(Conor especially). Food was lovely and value for money. Deputy manager Paul sorted out a big mix up with our food to a very satisfactory outcome, he is a gentleman. Room was very clean. We could have done with more bath towels as there were four of us and the fan in the small bathroom didnt work. The swimming pool area was spotless but I suggest stopping patrons blocking up the changing rooms with their belongings. The movie room for kids is a great idea. We will definitely be back.

Lovely hotel had fantastic bar food when we arrived on the Friday evening and plenty of choice on both morning for breakfast. Unfortunately the bed in room 301 was so uncomfortable only about 5 hours sleep on both nights it would put me off staying here again

The hotel was clean and well presented. We did not receive good service unfortunatelly. The radiator in the room was not working and we said that to the receptionalist but she did not do anytihng. The staff in the bar was tired and the service was poor. Thank you

Mount Errigal Hotel was the last word. We had four for our family room, but had trouble from we entered our room when our son and daughter saw a double bed for them to sleep in. Lovely lady on housekeeping immediately landed with a single foldup bed for my son, heaven again. Staff, service, food, and pool was fantastic. We will definately go back again on a holiday. Ten out of ten to the Errigal. Frauline and Desmond Young, Ballyconnell, County Cavan.

Friendly and helpful staff, we asked housekeeping for top sheets as the duvets were to heavy and it was v warm and it was no problem even down at swimming pool asked for extra towel for my hair and no problem either. Would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable and central, breakfast was very good and tasty. The roast beef at dinner the previous night was taste less. Cooked & sliced then kept hot for the rest of the day. Enjoyed our stay in your hotel. D. Sheehan

The food at Mount Errigal would not tempt me back there again. The model seems to be quantity instead of quality. Starter too big, veg and mash with mains - overkill. Steak was a bit chewy for a fillet but edible. Wifey ordered salmon without mussels and prawns or sauce. Disappointingly it all arrived but sent back and re-plated. Overall disappointing. Good bar staff, good staff at reception and good value for money but not going back as i like a bit of a wow factor with my food. Turkey and ham looked good going out I thought

Beautiful hotel!! It is great for families with its spacious family rooms, swimming pool and staff are very kind and tolerant of hyper children! Highlight of our stay was checking in to our room and finding five amazing cupcakes with a note to say welcome back as this was our second time staying at the hotel! Customer service at its finest! Will definitely be back. One wee recommendation though, bring your own swim hats as they are 3 euro a pop, might not sound like much but 15 euro for 5 swim hats is a bit steep!

This is a fantastic hotel for a family break. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed for two nights in a family room which was big enough for us. There is plenty to do in the vicinity with Glenveagh national park, Derry City and excellent beaches within a 30 minute drive. I would have given this hotel 5 stars however the mattresses and pillows were a uncomfortable and could probably do with being upgraded. Having said all that we are looking forward to going back in the future.

Myself and my 3 kids had a lovely time in the Mount Errigal last week. We booked a non-smoking room but were mistakenly put in a smoking one. When we complained later that night we were moved to a larger and more suitable room. The pool was a bit cold at times and the kids pool was closed but otherwise it was great. The hotel showed a kids movie every night at 7.30pm which was well received. We dined in the hotel one of the nights and though the food was lovely. The hotel is in a very good location for touring and for the town. I would recommend this. The staff were very helpful and nice too.

Stayed there last Friday night. Two adults and two children. There was a small mix up with rooms when we arrived but nothing that couldn't be resolved. Which it was.. smoothly. The staff couldn't have been nicer.even carrying our bags to our room! . Dave the manager went out of his way to make us feel welcome after a long drive as well as the lovely receptionist on check in. Keep up the good work mount errigal staff...we will be back

Hotel is fine to have a break in you are a family as the pool is great and very clean. Hotel staff very pleasant. We had a family room, one really comfortable bed and one not and the shower leaked very badly to the extent we had to get more towels to mop up the water.

We stayed here 2 nights for our easter break, hotel staff were very friendly and very helpful. Our family room was of good size, clean and in a quiet area. Swimming pool was excellent and kids pool was a great size. We had bar food in the evening which was very good and breakfast was excellent, one of the best I have got so far. We were asked at reception whether we wanted to pay on arrival or we could pay on departure. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and plenty to do for kids in Letterkenny. We would definetly go back to the Mount Errigal and would reccomend.

When we arrived we found the receptionist unfriendly but thorough and we were also asked to pay for our room inadvance when we checked in (Usually when we stay in hotels we tend to settle our bill when checking out not inadvance). We had two young children with us, we were hardly going to do a runner in the middle of the night. The room was big and clean but very tired looking and needed modernised. The staff in the leisure centre were very nice and really helpful. The swimming pool was a good size and it had a great children's swimming pool. I would advise future guests who wish to use the swimming pool to bring swimming caps with them. We were charged 3 euro for each swimming cap which were not individually wrapped and were quite cheaply made - very poor quality. In total 12 euro for 4 cheap caps which will not be used again. We ate dinner in the bar the food was OK. The bar staff were very nice and friendly. Breakfast was also nice and the staff serving breakfast were nice and friendly. Overall we had a nice stay but I do not think I would return to the Mount Errigal and would prefare to try another hotel.

THE HOTEL IS VERY GOOD TOURING BASE TO EXPLORE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL COUNTY. tHE STAFF WERE FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.iiT WAS ALSO VERY CHILD FRIENDLY WITH LEISURE FACILITIES IE SWIMMING POOL FOR KIDS PLUS AN NIGHTLY MOVIE SHOWN EACH NIGHT. THE FOOD WAS OF GOOD QUALITY AND WELL PRESENTED. H. OWEVER OUR ROOM WAS NOT SERVICED DAILY AND BASIC SANITTATION IE FLIES IN ROOMS IN DINING AREAS AROUND FOOD LEFT A LOT TO BE DESIRED. tHIS WAS ACCELERATED FURTHER WITH VARIOUS FIRE EXITS AND DOORS BEING LEFT OPEN THROUGHOUT THE DAY. tHERE WAS LITTLE EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THIS PROBLEM WAS BEING TACKLED PROPERLY. 2 OUT OF 5

just back from a lovely relaxing break,the swimming pool was great,loved the kids play time,the bar and restaurant,had friendly staff,with good service,the room was large and airy,plenty off space for us.the only problem we had was minor,there was no remote control for the television,we asked at reception five times and were told each time that housekeeping had it at the top of there list,we never got it ,this i found annoying and nobody listened to us,in our case its the little things that matter and because of this felt the service at reception was poor,but an enjoyable break

by Angie on Apr 3 2013 21:22

No complaint about the room, the service the food or staff, however I was shocked about the behaviour of other guests and parents who obviously left their children alone in their rooms so they could go off drinking in the bar. Children as young as 6 years old were running and screaming down the hallways throughout the night through to 2-3am in the morning. On the first night I stayed I did not complain as there was a wedding on and I assumed it was guests returning to their rooms, however it was pretty obvious on the 2nd night that this was not the case. I think it is a disgrace that parents have such little regard not only for other guests staying at the hotel but also for their own children. Hotel were good enough to put on a movie for children at 7pm each night unsupervised. Some parents took that to mean that they did not have to stay to look after their own children, that they could leave them in a room with strangers and go to the pub to drink. I felt sorry for Hotel Staff who had to deal with this type of behaviour, however I would recommend if you put on movies for kids that you insist that there is at least 1 parent present!! End of Rant!!

Very enjoyable stay at the Mount Errigel Hotel on Saturday 23rd February. We used the Leisure Centre which was fine, would have liked Shower Gel in Showers but everything else great. Rooms were great, plenty of space. Meal was lovely and entertainment in the bar very good and the Price was excellent.

Hi stayed for 2 nights, the room was very small, had two kids 10 and 13 and the beds were very small. Had expected two single beds in a family room, they did not have any other type rooms when I rang reception to see if we could move to a bigger room. The lockers in the changing rooms of the leisure centre did not have any locks so could not leave watches etc in there, had to go back to room. The pool was full of chlorine and the water was cloudy on our second morning, was told it was air locked and sorted but would take some time to clear. The tiles around the edge of the pool were very uneven, my son stubbed his toe on them. The food for breakfast was very good, we did not eat otherwise in the hotel. The hotel would need to updated before I would return.

Lovely Hotel, very nice Staff, Food wonderful, leisure centre great, BUT our room was small more like a single, shower not great and on first night mattress was passed it best, compained next morning and we were moved, so that was good. would I stay again for the deal I got, Yes, BUT other wise no. Oh and if you don't like shareing your space with kids, then don't stay in this hotel, if you have kids it seems good, well set up for their needs. Best bit Food! worst bit Mattress! 4 Stars for Food!
