The swimming pool was sparkling clean and all changing areas were good. We enjoyed excellent meals in the dining room which has fab.... More

Lovely room overlooking golf course. Very pleasant home cooked 3 course dinners and the buffet style breakfast had all you could wish for. Staff are lovely. I fell and hurt my arm and the hotel staff were very kind and helpful. I required a taxi to attend the local doctor and they organised one for me. I have to say... More

I would have given this hotel a higher review but for the staff shortage and ok food. Yes the food was nice, but not great. The breakfast was nice, but with not alot of choice tbh. The staff were VERY helpful, but it was very clear they were understaffed the whole weekend. The hotel staff and waiting staff were fantastic,... More

Lovely hotel. Stayed here on a Sunday evening with my husband and three 1/2 year old son. Food was good, room was lovely (king-size and single bed), very comfy beds. Swimming pool, kids pool and jacuzzi good. The hotel is in a really beautiful setting looking out over a golf course on the coast. Reception staff not overly friendly but... More

Once again have just enjoyed a mid-week break in the Inishowen Gateway. Usual efficient, friendly staff from reception to housekeeping. Special mention of the restaurant staff - they are terrific,especially Laura. Rooms are spotlessly clean as is the rest of the hotel. Will be back!! Try to book room with view over Lough Swilly - well worth it. My husband... More

We visit the Innishowen Gateway several times a year. It's obvious that we like it! We take quite a few mini-breaks and always measure the standards of our accommodation against the Innishowen Gateway. Our very recent stay was up to the usual standard - huge, clean room, overlooking the sea, generous sized bathroom with all the towels etc we could... More

A good hotel close to the shore of Lough Swilly with only a little stretch of golf course between the hotel and the sea - I'm not sure what the access rights are. The staff were great, from the very professional and welcoming receptionist on arrival, through the great barman in the lounge bar to the hardworking (overworked?) staff in... More

Rooms are OK, tad dated. The staff where spot on, good service provided. The wedding main course meal, chicken was bland and dry and the mash potatoes were pathetic, very dry. The breakfast was great. Used the pool which was nice, clean and modern. Location is good within walking distance to Buncrana town, play park etc.
