From the second we arrived we were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the general feeling we got from the place. Our room was large and bright, nicely furnished and we had a sea view. The bed was very comfortable and... More

We got a weekend break at the Inishowen Gateway for 2 nights B and B and one dinner. We didn't have massively high expectations but we had a great stay. The outside of the building isn't very attractive - a bit industrial looking - but don't be put off. Inside is lovely. We had a great, genuine welcome from the... More

We spent two nights in this hotel on the beautiful Inishowen Peninsula the staff were very friendly however as the hotel was quiet there was not much atmosphere. The view from our room was lovely. Food quite good service bit slow however overall we had a nice break reasonably priced.

Good controllable heating meant that mid winter was bearable but there was only 1 radiator to dry clothes on! Unfortunately we had to endure the stensh of cig smoke every day in our corridor. Breakfast was served... More
