Arrived for my mums birthday meal. Food not warm, service not good, and parents up all night due to noise from a Hen Party. Apparently, no reason to complain as staff offered to heat the meals up......so there you go, its ok to serve cold dinners folks. O and pay €26.50 each for the privilege. Well done Inishowen Gateway.

Hello O Magh T Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We are so very sorry that your parents night with us was ruined by another party that also stayed with us on Sunday. The offending party had refused to co operate with our night team on duty and this led to a number of other guests...

We were going to stay in Buncrana for my friends 30th and I contacted the hotel to enquire about cocktail making. Jolene responded very quickly and informed me that there was an offer for dinner and cocktail making, the price was very reasonable, so much so that I had to keep checking I had read it correctly!

The food was beautiful. The hotel as a whole was clean and the staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful, would definitely use again if we found ourselves in that part of...

This hotel is located in a quiet area. Town centre a short walk. Lovely beaches nearby. Couldn't fault hotel at all. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Meals were varied and very tasty. Nice wee bar if you fancied a drink. Used the pool and spa facilities every day. Room was great too. Would love to come back.

Having asked for a room at the rear we had a view over the golf course to Loch Swilly at the pool end of the hotel away from the noisy function rooms. A family room, there was a large bathroom with power type shower, again plenty lighting but not overall bright but had plenty of sun during the day. TV...

My husband and I went for our second visit to the hotel - a deal for the over 60's! We had 2 nights bed and breakfast, 2 evening meals and unlimited golf on the lovely wee Buncrana 9 hole course behind the hotel. The breakfast was a buffet and the evening meal was 3 courses plus tea/ coffee. The equivalent...

This is an amazing hotel. Reception staff were friendly and helpful and the sea view from the room was beautiful. Breakfast was gorgeous and had everything we could have wanted. The local area was outstanding and we will definitely be visiting again.
