Jackson's BallybofeyPosted Feb 7, 2016
Pros: The location being only a few mins walk from ballybofey was great.
Cons: The old part of the hotel needs a makeover
Location: There are some lovely local shops in the town
I chose to stay at Jackson's because its a family business I like to support local people the hotel reception was lovely and the staff where great but I was disappointed with our room we brought our two dogs so we where in the pet friendly side and it definitely needs an upgrade I would go back and hope things improve soon.

Location is this hotels only positivePosted Jan 2, 2016
Took a while to check in- 2 weddings on so that was to be expected. First room smelt like stale urine, asked to be moved. New room was old fashioned & the view from the window was looking out on to other windows of the hotel. The hotel itself was overpriced for its condition. I may not have minded staying here if it was cheap as I'm a firm believer in getting what you pay for, but I stayed in a neighbouring 4 star hotel the evening beforehand & actually paid less! The noise from the floor boards above the room woke me up on numerous occasions (I'm a deep sleeper!) Damp patch on ceiling in bedroom. The breakfast room was old & run down, however the food itself was nice. Would not stay here again!

convenientPosted Nov 23, 2015
Pros: Closeness to villa rose where I was attending wedding
Staying at this hotel due to hotel next door being booked out for wedding I was attending. Rooms are very very dated, furniture could do with being replaced or even guven a lick of paint. Left shower on for ages to warm up it looked like a power shower but was nothing close to that. Bathroom very dated also.

Great hotelPosted Nov 4, 2015 on Hotels
We read reports prior to arrival and were apprehensive - some very grim reports but we were attending a wedding at the hotel and had no choice. From the minute we arrived it was fantastic. Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. They did a fabulous job of the wedding and everyone in our large party of guests really enjoyed their stay. The shopping in Mcinennies is brilliant as well!!! Great hotel and staff - well done!

Handy to townPosted Nov 3, 2015
Pros: Food, rooms, staff, location, facilities,
Cons: in need of general maintenance and care.
Location: great shops near by, good sporting facilities and handy to many good tourist locations.
A comfortable hotel with good amenities and facilities. Starting to look a bit worn and in need of a "lick of paint". Very comfortable rooms and a friendly and knowledgeable staff.

in the heart of DonegalPosted Oct 17, 2015 on Hotels
I stayed in Ballybofey on business. The hotel is in the town but I had a lovely view over the river from my window. Staff were very helpful. I stayed in the old part of the hotel. The newer section is separate and an older couple I met found the walk back to their bedroom very long as he was not very mobile. Lovely to have the pool to relax and unwind after the day's work.

Wedding party StayPosted Oct 12, 2015
Pros: As I have already said in my earlier statement, The staff are a credit to the hotel, and the big open fire in the reception as very cosy.
Cons: I booked this stay via Expedia 6 months prior to the wedding however despite that we had only been booked in one night at the higher rate! cost more!

We attended a family wedding which meant we stayed 2 nights B&B the overall experience was excellent, we stayed in the new wing and the rooms were very clean good size and modern. Some of a family experienced issues with their Hot water in the morning. In my opinion it is the staff who make a hotel great, and this is the case with Jacksons the staff cannot do enough for you especially the breakfast staff and the bar staff.
