Guests that stayed at this property said

The cottage's cleanliness is generally satisfactory, though one review mentioned a dirty kitchen floor and a mouse sighting, suggesting room for improvement. However, no other reviews raised cleanliness concerns, indicating these may be isolated incidents.

The location is highly praised for its beauty and convenience as a base for exploring Donegal and nearby counties. The proximity to Ardara town and scenic spots like Glengesh Pass adds to its appeal.

Comfort is well-regarded, with mentions of a comfy bed and hot water bottles. However, suggestions for better mattresses and cushions indicate that while the overall comfort is good, there is room for enhancement.

Facilities receive mixed feedback. Guests enjoy the traditional features and board games, but note missing game pieces, the absence of a tin opener, and issues with the shower drainage. The coin-operated heating is a point of contention, affecting the overall experience.

While guests appreciate the historical charm and the provision of hot water bottles, there is no mention of gifts or extra touches that would indicate thoughtfulness in hospitality. Therefore, this category cannot be scored.
