Arrived 4 hours before check in time and front desk attendant went out of her way to welcome us. She called housekeeping and put a rush on our room and we only had a very short wait. From check in to check out and everyone in between we were made to feel welcome. Would definitely stay here again.

i stayed in this hotel from 15th May to 17th May with a group of people. The staff were very helpful and the food was good. The views were outstanding. The room was very big and well kept. The price was great and would recommend it to anyone travelling that side of the country

What a lovely hotel with the most friendly staff. My partner and I just became parents and this was our 1st "family holiday" with our new baby. The hotel was perfect and I can't recommend it enough. From a price point of view the hotel was great value, very comfortable and clean and the scenery in this area is stunning.... More

I had an amazing time here. Hotel was of average standards but the Staff were amazing. We went with a large group for competitions in Buncrana. The Hotel was so accommodating to our needs and helped us out every way they could. We had food in the bar on Friday night. The food in the bar was great and they... More

Have always stayed in the sister hotel to this one in the centre of town "The lake of shadows hotel" although the rooms in the lake of shadows are a bit inferior to this one that is where it ends. My Husband had to book us into this Hotel a few weeks back as the other one was fully booked.... More

The Inishowen Gateway has wonderful views, a gym and pool, two restaurants and a spa. Rooms are old fashionedly decorated but large and comfortable. Breakfast was substantial and they cater for gluten intolerance. There is a good selection of evening meals and the portions are ample with a generous serving of side dishes too. Their wine list is sadly mediocre.... More

We chose to stay at this hotel following a Recommendation. I phoned to make the booking and found the receptionist very 'curt'. She wasn't very friendly but I didn't let that put me off. I had to phone back a little later as I didn't receive any confirmation of the booking and the lady I spoke to the second time... More

Stayed here a couple of times, the hotel does great deals for dinner bed and breakfast, food is always great, evening meals are super choice and very tasty, great buffet breakfasts. One downside on the last visit was that evening meals where served in the bar due to hotel being less busy, this was disappointing and definitely worth checking this... More
