The brilliant friendly staff and lovely food
Very bad water supply for first few days until last day it improved greatly, could do with some decorating, up dating some what
I needed to get away somewhere for a break, even for one night. Up came Lake of Shadows at a silly price and I was off. Buncrana is my favourite Irish place as I learned not to smoke there over 60 years ago. The Lake hotel is right next to the beach and giant car-park is beside hotel. The room was spotless and staff were very helpful. The breakfast next morning was great and set me up for a day just driving around with my sat-nav switched off. I will be back at Lake of Shadows soon.
The corridor lights were supposed to come on automatically. Sometimes they did, sometimes they did not. Not a big deal, but annoying.
A nice friendly welcome.Lovely warm family atmosphere.Wholesome tasty food.Lovely bath in my single room.Set in stunning natural scenery around Buncrana.I felt so relaxed and content even after just one day, An absolute tonic..
The attractive location, walking convenience to local town and to nearby City of Derry, comfortable, clean, quiet rooms, top car park convenience and wonderful staff plus very reasonably priced. Would look forward to returning in 2 years
All more than wonderful. Truly, no negatives

Hotel needs refurbishment and especially bathroom area which was very basic.

the staff were amazing - the food was brilliant - the overall experience was great.
Heating went on and off electric sockets of 3 hours
nice friendly hotel great food good value and close to town centre
the breakfast was at eight am earlier would have suited me but its not the end of the world
The mannerly staff
The warm welcome and attention I received during my stay was notable. Judging from a conversation I overheard between the receptionist and two elderly customers who return regularly for the food, that feeling of being made feel welcome is part of the hotel's ethos. The single room was clean and warm, and I couldn't fault the service. Excellent value for two nights B & B.
Food was excellent :-)
No hand rail in shower
