Stayed here for the night recently while on business in the area. Had the chance to walk around that part of the city in the evening and really enjoyed it, the hotel is surrounded by nice shops and some interesting buildings. Found the staff very friendly but did feel that they spent a lot of time standing behind the bar waiting for something to happen which wasn't going to happen due to lack of customers, they might well appreciate the opportunity to do a little sanding down and painting in the accommodation side of the building which is a bit let down by a lack of maintenance, particularly in the night time entrance and, in my bedroom, the grouting in the bathroom (see photo). Overall, I found the City Gate very warm and welcoming with an interesting menu together with the opportunity to purchase home made pickled eggs and pork scratchings to go with a good choice of wines and beers. I look forward to returning.
