    Check in was very fast and efficent allowing me and my husband to get on with our stay. Breakfast was fabulous

    Setting (helped by the good weather), staff, ample parking.

    The rate I was charged for my room. My standard room cost 130 euro for the night, but a friends room was only 80 euro for the night and it was of a far superior quality!!! We both booked our rooms around the same time so the price difference should have not been that great for such a difference in room standard!

    relaxed atmosphere

    dining room not big enough for breakfast so had to wait 30mins on sun morn they have an excellent location beside the sea yet they have moved the dining room to our side of hotel with a view of the car park

    The rooms were quite comfortable and the evening meals were okay.

    Yes, I had asked for a non smoking room as I am asthmatic, but the smoking and non smoking rooms are all in the same corridor and the smell in the corridor and our room with all the smoke was actually horrific. I felt sick most of the time and had to leave all the windows open, It was terrible. On the Sunday morning we had to queue 15 mins for breakfast. The receptionist said it was due to the heavy volume of people on a Sunday morning. When we eventually got into the small breakfast room, everything was empty we had to ask for tea and toast twice. It was very apparent there was not enough staff on and they were clearing tables and honestly half the speed they could have been working at. It was very disorganised.

    We had a very relaxing stay.The staff were extremely friendly pleasant and courtious and couldn't do enough for you.The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the views were spectacular. No noise first thing in the morning which meant that you could have a little lie in before breakfast. Food was just gorgeous with a wonderful selection of food types to suit all palettes. I would highly recommend this hotel as one of my top three and great value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed the trad sessions in two of the local pubs.Thank you so much.

    Fantastic value, great location beside beaches, nice bar food, lovely pool and staff were very friendly and helpfull.

    The steam room in the leisure centre was like sitting over a boiling kettle, apart from that everything else was perfect.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    I enjoyed the peace and quiet. Good walks along the beach or just a short drive further up the Inishowen Peninsula to enjoy some beautiful scenery. Great to be at the golf course to play or just watch,but the friendliness of the staff made the experience of staying at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel a very enjoyable one. I would highly recommend it for the choise and quality of the food in both the main restaurant and the lounge.

  • Group of friends

    I really enjoyed my stay over easter, service was fantastic, staff were very attentive and freindly and the food was best i have had i a hotel for long time.

    just to mention room need a bit of attention little bit outdated, and dressin rooms for swimming pool a little cold when changing.
