        The original room offered smelt damp and had a broken window. We asked to change and were given a much nicer room. This leads to the question why were we not offered the second room originally? The staff were very polite and helpful in what looked like difficult circumstances. A real shame as this is a really nice hotel but Bundoran appears to be a dying town.

        The original room offered. There were more than 60 bedrooms and the hotel obviously was not full.

        The Receptionist didn't give any special instructions how to find the room, the lift went to the 3rd Floor and you then had to walk upa stairs to the floor, very poorly signed posted when exiting the lift to find the room number and no clear directon from the receiptonist either... The Plates used for serving our breakfast were piping hot and you couldn't hold them when walking to your table...crazy.... The Breakfast Waitress asked us if we wanted Tea/Coffee before we were seated and hence none arrived to our table, we also had to dress our own table....find clean cups etc... Breakfast quality was very poor and very little continental breaskfast was offered. All in All Value for Money it was very poor.

        Hotel has no car park ,no gym and when we went to the room there were no shampoo or conditoner in the bathe room we were put in a front room and doh we had some drinks we got no sleep because of the noise of the crowds till 6 in the morning and the traffic was the same

        The Grand Central Hotel is central and is a hotel; it certainly isn't grand. The best thing was leaving.

        Wi-fi did not work and they didn't seem bothered. The shower was for disabled persons and the temperature of the water was uncontrollable and was ridiculously hot. The hair-dryer didn't work. There is no parking and a very casual staff attitude.

        Location wise it is a good location.... But very noisy!!!!!

        Tv did not work, bedrooms need a complete makeover. Rooms and hallway smell damp and smell of smoking

        The reception staff were very good--friendly and helpful, even when we had to complain about poor service and being overcharged for our (group) dinners, they remained helpful--and eventually sorted it out.

        The restaurant service was very poor--and slow--for dinner on the saturday evening. We had booked our mmeal for 7.30 to 7.45; but were not called in to our table until 8.15; food orders taken at 8.45 and our meal was being served around 10pm--even though our starters were mainly salads. Even then, they got some of the meals mixed up (presumably with other diners) but by that stage we were hungry enough to eat anyway. When the bill came we had been overcharged--for an extra meal plus other extras--but the receptionist sorted it out next day. Thanks to her, our family group left without complaint.

        Room was above bar area and live music was too loud

        The breakfast was great.

        We hardly got any sleep due to kids being up late out the front of our room making noise, car alarms going off etc. They need double glazed windows or to give people the option of not staying on the road side of the hotel.

        I Booked room for non smokers,but everywhere on my flooor I felt smell cigarettes it was not nice..

        Simple 3 star hotel. Spacious rooms. Excellent breakfast. 78 Euros for B & B for 2 people excellent value for money for short break.

        Staff could clean outside the hotel door from time to time as litter makes it look tacky. Also our room had a damp smell (room 506). However friends were staying in other rooms and they had no problems at all.

      • Group of friends
        8.8

        Confortable accomodation and easy access to town entertainment.

        Very early season so few visitors staying and no entertainment in hotel
