Solid Choice in Buncrana.
Right on the main road outside of Buncrana so it's easy to find. Seemed like ample parking. Excellent service, room, and restaurant. Breakfast is very good as well. Plus, it's right next door to a modern Applegreen.

This is an awkward review to write. Everything about the hotel is very good: service, rooms, price, cleanliness, access, etc. For my partner and I, though, the place lacks a certain charm. To both of us, it reminded us of very nice roadside motels across the U.S. If you like this style, it is absolutely a good choice.
