      Historical Traveler Reviews Redcastle Hotel Moville

      Mixed review

      from

      Stayed one night at the carlton redcastle and have mixed reviews. As mentioned before rooms are very nice and our room had quite a good view. The restaurant was very busy - the waitress said they had 185 for dinner - that did not count ourselves as although I booked with the restaurant on booking via phone our reservation was not made. The food was good but the service was slow where our plates sat on the table unremoved for at least 15-20mins after each course. I do not mind waiting for good food but not having my empty plate left sitting. Although I enjoyed my mussels for starter and lobster for main my tummy did not as at 2.30am, 3.30am and 4am I felt very sick and had severe diarrhoa. At reception on paying my bill I informed the staff I had been unwell and was asked to wait to see the manager. After waiting 15-20mins the pleasant receptionist informed me the manager was too busy to come and they would have the mussels tested. I then paid my bill asking for a charge of water to be removed which had not had at dinner. The upset tummy may have been just me I don't know but I was not impressed when the manager did not come- they probably couldn't be bothered. I will wait to see if I hear anything from them as I asked the receptionist to make sure I do.

      Liked the toilets.....

      from

      Good decor and quality, rooms not bad fittings and furnishing wise. Got the (a?) presedential suite, dissappointment! Had expected at least a sea view, got view of carpark and derelict pub in the next door property.........not what I expected from a suite in a hotel selling itself on view and location anyway?

      2100 was finish of food in the bar........bar meal refused despite queing at bar since 2050. Why were we penalised for their inefficient and slow service??? blank refusal by staff when we explained the situation, and they knew we had been there for 10 min. The chef even came out to telll us with a smirk how he was not taking more orders at about 2101.

      Managed to get into restaurant at 2200 to be greeted by service which was painfully slow and difficult, by staff who looked and acted like their companion dogs and favourite granny had just died.........most unfriendly and unhelpful.

      Could have been so good, was soooo disappointing, we won't be returning.

      Suggest you try Letterkenny as you'll have more chance of seeing Lough Foyle from there!

      A modern take on an old favourite

      from

      We spent a weekend here in February 2006 and the weather was great. The misty days added to the mystical feel of Donegal, and the sun rising like a huge red ball over the hills of Derry was amazing. The hotel has re-opened after a massive makeover and the addition of a thalasso spa. The style now is modern contemporary with lots of dark wood and leather sofas. The room was very comfortable, the choice was sea view or golf course view. We had a sea view. Food in the restaurant was excellent - surprisingly good, imagainative and well served. Lovely local staff were very helpful. The spa was particularly nice, especially the aromaplasty facial.

      A Change for the Better!

      from

      I have stayed at the newly refurbished Carlton Redcastle Hotel twice in recent weeks (25 - 27 November 2005 and 28 - 30 December 2005) and was certainly impressed with the scale and nature of the, perhaps overdue, renovations. Perhaps more importantly I was pleased that the hotel has retained its greatest asset - the staff.

      Naturally there are some rooms which are bigger, brighter or better located than others but in my experience the reception staff were more than helpful in ensuring we were happy with our accomodation.

      The new spa is impressive and beautifully appointed, with dedicated pool times allocated to guests with children. The hotel bar manages to retain some character, the restaurant is bright and comfortable and on the two occasions I had dinner the food was excellent. Meals eaten in the bar were similarly enjoyable.

      The Redcastle still retains a certain Donegal 'charm', the West of Ireland having its own version of 'island time'and if you are a perfectionist then it may not be for you. The kitchen does seem to be under pressure in the mornings and on our most recent visit the TV set in our room only received two channels.

      However, a stay in the Carlton Redcastle will give great value for money, the staff are fantastic and Donegal is a beautiful part of the world.

      Well worth visiting!

      from

      The Hotel has recently completed a massive refurbishment and extension programme.

      The staff were extremely courteous, friendly and nothing was too much bother for them.

      The Spa was really worth the visit, we ended up spending nearly 90 mins sampling most of what was on offer in the pool area.

      We had evening dinner and the quality and portions were unbelievable.

      Our bedroom was of an extremely high standard and the bathroom had adequate lotions and towels. The shower was really good and had a great powerful spray. (Why don't other Hotels offer the same facilities, after all they charge the same).

      To sum up , if you ever are passing close to this hotel, make a point of stopping and sampling everything this Hotel has to offer.

      Excellent PLace

      from

      I got married in October this year and we held the reception in the Redcastle Hotel, Co.Donegal. What a fantastic time we had!!! The hotel has just reopened after undergoing a major renovation and the new staff and surroundings helped to make our day a success.

      The staff were extremely helpful and courtious and all our guests commented on the hotel. The bedrooms are finished to a very high standard and the honeymoon suite is massive!One nites stay is not enough, so we will back again.

      I would highly recommend this hotel to any couple who are planning their wedding or to anyone who is looking for somewhere special.

      Bad Value.

      from

      I stayed for 2 nights at the Redcastle in Aug 2004. I was with a wedding party. The wedding reception was good but the room I stayed in was terrible for the price. It cost us Euro 260 for 2 for 2 nights. The room was small, a 4'6" bed which you could just barely get around. The decor was gloomy. The room was also over the hotel pump which went on and off all night and kept me awake. The walls were very thin and all noise in the corridor was audible.. I could not sleep at all there.

      The breakfast also left a lot to be desired. The toast was leathery as was the potato cake served. Fried eggs were not freshly done and scrambled eggs were grey and overdone. The black and white pudding was inedible.

      The leisure centre was closed for refurbishment.

      At this price I expect some luxury and if they have to refurbish the leisure centre then the price should relfect this.

      I have been in other hotels in Ireland for about this price this year and had a very big room with 6' bed, perfectly functioning leisure centre, good breakfast. I was very disappointed with the the Redcastle.

      Amazing place!!

      from

      What an amazing place!! The setting is out of this world! Hotel right on the beach and so private, views over the sea, own golf course which you can play for free as residents!! Hotel itself was great - food very good and staff friendly. Made to feel very at home and had a country house hotel feel. If you're reading this you should definately stop here!

      Relaxing Break & great wedding reception.

      from

      Stayed at the Redcastle for a few days when my brother got married. The wedding reception was held here and couldn't be faulted.

      Very family friendly, my son was 10 months old & the staff couldn't be more helpfull. Excellent food, relaxing atmosphere. The only problem was that it was so good we didn't want to leave!!

      Up early this morning to a full spread of breakfast organised by Mabel of course. Then in the car as they are taking us along the northern coast of Ireland. We started in port stewart, along to port rush and onto the giants causeway which was really cool. They say the giants causeway was caused by the plates in the earth pushing lava up to the surface however there is also an Rubin legend that a giant lived there. Quite a fascinating ...

      Anyway, I was moved to hear him speak about how the world needs to increase consciousness and question what our morals are. He had also stated that there is a gap between pledging to ...

We went on to Doagh Visitor Centre where Patricks family has lived for XX years. He has built many exhibits that talk about the Irish Famine and other problems of poverty throughout the world. It was very interesting and sobering. After stopping for lunch at ...

      A quick walk around Glenarm harbour in the drizzle before returning to the car.

      Several miles of vague mist and cloud and we arrived on the north coast at the Carrick Rope Bridge, a small rope bridge connecting the mainland to a small island used by fisherman to get to the best salmon.

      With better visibility now reaching up to 2-3 miles we walked the short 1/2 mile along the cliff tops listening (and smelling ) the bird ...

On this drive we did coach speed dating – the person in the isle seat moves down and talks to the next person. When we got to the giant's causeway we got audio guides and walked down the path to the site itself. There was lots of things to take pictures of and i was with a group that was getting to know each ...
