So many things to think about before a departure and so many last minute doubts!
We are always available for any curiosity but here you can find the questions we are most frequently asked! 🙂
Where can I park my car?
Viale Manzoni, right in front of the hotel, is the ideal place to park your car for free: cool, shady and very quiet.
Alternatively we have a private parking space in a covered garage (m. 2.20 x m. 4.70 with a height of m. 1.75) 2 minutes walk from the hotel available at 15 € per day.
Do you have services for cyclists?
Yeah, every year in May, Donegal sells out with event attendees. Nine Hills; also the enthusiasts who come on summer holidays with their families and the "beloved bicycle" find here the ideal place!
Among the services: reinforced breakfast also in particular hours (on request) room/workshop for bicycles deposit, air compressor and basic equipment.

How are lunch and dinner arranged?
The menu is by choice and, for the best organization of the preparation of fresh products that we use every day, the favorite dishes should be booked the day before.
We have 3 main starters which vary daily (meat, fish and vegetarian) + the 4 fixed options always appreciated by children: meat sauce, tomato, white and butter; 3 main courses (meat, fish and vegetarian) and desserts : spoon desserts, traditional cakes and doughnuts depending on the day, lemon sorbet made by us, fresh fruit in season and ice cream every day. At lunch and dinner, cooked and raw vegetables and tasty snacks are served as a buffet.
As an alternative to hotel meals, we offer the "picnic basket" with pasta or rice salad, fresh sandwiches of your choice, fresh fruit and slices of homemade cake.
Do you accept animals?
Yes, small size and free of charge. It is sufficient to communicate the presence of your Four-legged friend at the time of booking for the best accommodation.
Within a radius of 4/10 minutes walk from the Hotel you can choose the equipped bathing establishment:
Bagno Conti 39 (tel. 0547 80449)
Bathing establishment 37 (tel. 0547 673103) in Viale Trento
Bagno Ferrara 43 (tel 0547 1938030) in via Carso.
These are the closest.
In the hotel, the spaces accessible to them are: the veranda, the garden on the avenue and the areas of passage to reach the room. Since we have many children, including very small ones, we recommend that they be kept on a short leash in these areas for the serenity of all.
