Lovely little hotel in a beautiful situation.. Comfortable, clean bedrooms with windows that open wide, thank goodness. Could do with a full length mirror. Had meals both nights that we stayed there and enjoyed them very much although it would have been nice to have a seafood option. Lovely cosy sitting area with a fire and friendly bar. Delightful staff. Without doubt we will return.

One of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. This is a really good hotel. It is light and airy, with a welcoming charm. Our room was large and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have slept in. There is a private sitting room overlooking the lake for residents. Service and food were brilliant and this was our favourite stay so far on the Wild Atlantic Way

Although the food was generous and hearty, we would have enjoyed some local produce, crab perhaps? Breakfast was pretty basic, but the white pudding was amazing. Overall we enjoyed our stay, loved the bright room and the friendly staff. Seeking to buy some Slinkie whiskey now.

We enjoyed our stay at the lake house, very much; the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating; the food was very good and the sizzling steak on Saturday evening was second to none. The only niggle I would have was that our room was rather small.

Most convivial and relaxing holiday. Mary and her staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The area around Lake House was outstanding, being on part of the Atlantic Way. The hotel itself was very comfortable, well appointed and we would heartily recommend it to anyone thinking of a holiday in that area. Thank you for a lovely stay, we would certainly come back again!

My children and I stayed in July in a Family room. We found the room to be be clean, neat, and ample size. Beautiful Narin strand is just a short walk. There are many other places to visit a short drive from the hotel. Mary and her staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. We look forward to returning in the future.

We had a lovely stay at lakehouse hotel in Portnoo right beside the golf course and the stunning beach. South-west Donegal is such a hidden gem of a place and the people and hotel staff we so welcoming. I think we must have gotten the best room in the hotel. Superb ! We will surely be back !

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lakehouse. Our room, although no view to talk of,was very comfortable. The hotel staff were very friendly; in the restauant and at breakfast nothing was too much trouble. Add to that the quality of the food it made for a great weekend break. We would love to come back again at some stage...

I had a truly enjoyable four-night stay ot the Lake House Hotel, Portnoo. The friendly and professional staff keep all areas of the hotel to a very high standard with extremely comfortable bedrooms and spacious, welcoming lounges and dining rooms. The breakfasts and evening meals were outstanding - the abundant clientele of "locals" is always evidence of consistently high standards and good value. The location is excellent with lovely views and glorious beaches. Donegal people have a natural gift for hospitality and Mary and her staff are up there with the very best in this fabulous county. My first visit and already looking forward to staying agian at the Lake House Hotel.

We just love this hotel, and have been coming back over many years. It's the friendliest hotel we know; the staff could not be more helpful. The food is very good. It's very well situated; close to the finest beach in Ireland and a first-class golf course. It's the perfect place to "chill out" and relax, and it's also a great venue for any kind of family gathering. The Lake House is our favourite hotel!

I stayed at the Lake House on the night before they closed for the winter season. Despite being very quiet and having only 2 staff on duty they were pleasant and welcoming and the service was good. The hotels' location is excellent and the views from there were splendid on a sunny evening.
