This hotel is great for children and families especially the free WIFI all over the hotel. Although only a 3* we have stayed in a 4* on the North Coast and there was very little difference except the price!! We got a great rate booking directly with the hotel. Hotel is pleasant. It was warm for a cold autumnal break. Rooms are very clean, decor is a little dated e.g. terracotta walls but all is in working order. Staff everywhere are very pleasant especially in the leisure centre.
We had a dinner included with our package. Food was good but a little on the cool side. We had seafood chowder, steak, turkey and desserts were very good. Portion sizes were generous. Ask for your food to be piping hot!
Breakfast is the normal buffet style but with beautiful views over Lough Swilly.
Planet Active has a great range of activities for kids. Very secure and well staffed.
The swimming pool is warm and steam room, sauna and jacuzzi very hot. Just relax and enjoy. Swim hats must be worn.
We ate in the sister hotel Lake of Shadows. Exceptional value. Two courses for E12.70 or £10.66 Mon - Thurs. Selection was good but the best was a hundini coconut ice-cream with caramel and white chocolate! To die for!!
We went to the beach and Swans Park. Lovely walk and beautiful weirs and waterfalls.
Would definitely visit this area again and stay at Inishown Gateway.
