      The staff, the room and the cleanliness

      We had a wonderful stay at The Abbey hotel. They upgraded us to a suite because we arrived a bit earlier than expected. The location is out of this world. I would highly recommend The Abbey to anyone going to Donegal Town.

      My husband and I stayed in the Abbey hotel last Saturday night. It was a special occasion and on arrival there was a bottle of champagne in our room compliments from the hotel. We thought this was a lovely gesture. We had a lovely meal in the hotel, then met friends and had a great nights craic. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

      This hotel needs a refurbishing.”

      The reception did not know if I paid thru Agoda. The beds were terrible. The lighting in the halls only went on when you stood underneath them. One plug in the room. The soap and shampoo was squeeze bottle attached to the wall. Black cherry for washing and green apple for shampoo. Come on, had to ask for a bar of soap. The key system is antiquated. When we got back to the room couldn't get one of the lights to stop flickering. Tried to unscrew it but the bulb was locked, I guess so no one would steal it. We were on the third floor and still heard the thumping of the band below. When I went to check out I told them I had a dinner charge to pay for and they said it's been charged but could no give me a receipt. I received three calls the next day because the dinner was not charged and they needed my credit card info. Gave it to them and hope that will be the end of me ever hearing from the Abbey Hotel again.

      I found the hotel in a great place and it was clean. The room was at the back so quite, however, as a solo traveller I did not go out at night and I found their tv coverage lacking, they need to get some form of cable for their customers, as a lot of the people did not out after dinner

      Antiquated property in a great location ”

      This hotel is smack on the main diamond of town. Friendly staff and general cleanliness could not make up for lacking electrical plugs and a poor functioning toilet. Housekeeping had to show me how to jiggle the broken flush handle and give it a double pump to get the flush right. Good value for a night if you’re not fussy, but if you want to plug in a cell phone and simply use the toilet this is not the place for you.

There was a champagne cork on the floor from the previous occupant, the canopy over the four posted bed had seen better days, with a pin holding it together , another hole in it and a stain a large stain of some kind. Not what you want above your head. The Jacuzzi bath didn't work. And not cheap to rent.
