This is one of my favorite hotel in Donegal but I get the sensation this hotel is getting worst with the time. Hotel rooms desperately need a refresh as the floors are extremely noisy even if the beds are still good and comfortable. Food has become really mediocre and made me recently sick even if the reception couldn't not accept...

Ideal for a relaxing, romantic break. One night wasn't enough. We were surprised to have full view of the beach from our bedroom. Room was very clean and spacious although a little dated. Parts of the hotel seem modern and up to date and others dont. The charm of location definitely trumps any issues with hotel. We understood the hotel...

The hotel is nice enough and in nice location. We had 2 rooms booked for one night. First room we got moved due to flooded bathroom -after one shower the bath leaked out the bottom. The hotel acted promptly and upgraded to new room. In the 2nd room we booked( not the upgraded one) I had no heat as the...

Oh how we all wished we had more time to stay here. I had back trouble and would have loved to go to the Spa. Everything was perfect, the scenery overlooking Donegal Bay. Dining room was lovely as it too was situated to look over the Bay as one eats. The twilight, clouds and waves all brought an end to...

The Sandhouse is in a great location. I immediately started to unwind after arriving into our sea view room. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The fry the next morning was one of the best I've had in a while. I am knocking off one star only because the room we were in, whilst spotlessly clean, was shabby insofar...

I stayed two nights in Sandhouse hotel with a seaview room on the 3rd floor. The room was perfect, well laid out and comfortable. I moved my bed so I could see out of the window as the view was stunning and I wanted to see the sea as well as hear it. I ate in the hotel for breakfast...

Stayed for one night bed and breakfast. We requested a seaview room. We travelled down from Donegal town and the journey was roughly 20 minutes. We were made very welcome by the receptionist Caroline, who was really lovely. We were in room 327 which was a beautiful seaview room. The room was very clean and cosy with a good sized...

A beautiful hotel with elegant and well kept furniture. An open fire greeted us at reception with comfortable sofas giving a cosy feel. Relaxing atmosphere in the bar for pre dinner drinks. Food was amazing at dinner with efficient service and again at breakfast with so much choice. Restaurant situated on the 1st floor with glass front gave great views....
