A lovely Hotel with friendly helpful staff.The room was very comfortable. We loved the leisure facilities of the pool and sauna and jacuzzi. We arrived on Saturday afternoon (on a very good Booking.com flash deal) and Immediately went for a lovely swim. We didnt eat in the hotel (although it looked fine) but we went to a pub a couple of minutes walk up the road and had a nice romantic dinner by candlelight. Will definitely go back

We got a deal on Booking.com flash deals and stayed on a Saturday night, hotel was lovely, staff were very friendly. Our room was very spacious, clean and warm, but my sister stayed in another block, her room was not as comfy and very cold but we all did enjoy our stay and would visit again.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 274, was lovely, sister stayed in room 400?? room not so good.

We booked this as a last minute New Year trip. On check in, we got a lovely girl called Danielle who was so friendly and helpful. Throughout our entire stay, all staff were so helpful and professional at all times. Food was good, service in the bar and restaurant was excellent and the facilities for the children are fantastic..... we will definately stay again.

Just back from a one night stay to the Innishowen Gateway hotel. The family room was large, clean and warm. We ate in the bar and the choice of food was excellent and the portions were very generous. The food itself was really good - I was dubious following the previous reviews re food but concerns were not valid. The service from all staff that served us was attentive and friendly.

The leisure centre, especially the swimming pool, was great for the children and ourselves alike. All staff involved in the Santa's Kingdom were great and made our children feel special. After attending Santa's Kingdom the children were offered a movie night and a chance to play in the children's play area the morning after attending Santa's Kingdom.

Finally, having returned home, the Children have just received a letter from Santa thanking them for meeting him in Innishowen,

The hotel may be 3 star in grade but the service we received was 4 plus.
