This visit (July) was a couples night. Staff were as pleasant and helpful as previous visit. Rooms are all non smoking now. Food was lovely, unfortunately my husbands steak... More

Inishowen Gateway is one of my usual stops when in Buncrana. It is the second time I have been here this year and the food has gone from mediocre to bad. We had a large family dinner here on Sunday evening and besides the steaks the portions were poor. The turkey and salmon plates were mainly dry mash potatoes and... More

I stayed here for a weekend while attending a wedding and really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are very basic but we had a lovely view. Some people in my wedding party had issues with being overcharged and charged twice for rooms, but I found the whole process simple. Friendly staff and such great facilities. Great food at the wedding... More

Our coach party were given private facilities for our evening meals and the menu was first class. Breakfast was served in the restaurant and again first class. We had a twin bedded room which overlooked the bay.... More

On first impressions, this hotel seems to have it all. Spacious public areas, large pub and restaurant, health club and more. However, for me, the important issues are sleep quality, cleanliness and the provision of advertised services such as Wi-Fi. As the hotel is in a coastal resort, and as my stay was during school holidays, there were a number... More

Stayed here on business last week when visiting the area, hotel is easy to find with plentiful parking. Rooms aren't spectacular but are very solid for the price paid, also ate and had a drink there and were generally impressed by the service and the food was very nice. Will happily return when back in the area.
