Recently I visited this hotel for a family wedding. The staff seem very friendly although some of the younger staff don't seem as pleasant. The meal for the wedding wasn't the best. The venue was great for a wedding although to get to my room I had to walk outside because there was a function in the room between our...

Attended a wedding. Setting was lovely but food was just ok. It was bland and we were all hungry after. They came and lifted our gravy boats when we were still eating and offered extras 20mins after we finished.....made no sense at all.

I always start my reviews by saying I'm extremely picky! I expect a lot for my money, especially cleanliness. The Inishowen Gateway Hotel ticked all the boxes even at such a busy time of year (Easter weekend). The location is fantastic - great road links, on the beach and within walking distance of the town (which although small has plenty...

This place isn't perfect but we would go back. We didn't get round to using the swimming pool or spa so can't comment on those. The bad: We were given the option of paying for our stay on arrival. We then found out later that we couldn't charge things to our room (although the bar did let us run a...

Staff very helpful. Upgraded to seaview and it was lovely. Rooms good size but could do with being painted as paint patches everywhere. Food in bar was good and leisure facilities great. 2 kids with us and was great to have the kids play area supervised for kids over 4 while we had an hour to ourselves. Great family hotel...

Very good family oriented hotel. Stayed over the Easter weekend, the hotel was full and very busy, despite this the staff were very helpful and attentive. We had dinner in the bar and it was delicious, piping hot and served in a timely manner. The buffet breakfast was also of a high standard with lots of choice on offer. The...

We found the hotel excellent. We just went for a short break for our anniversary along with two other family members who were celebrating one of their birthdays. The hotel rooms are lovely decorated and very clean. We were impressed that there was coffee and tea making facilities in the room. The staff were very nice and helpful and the...
