Stayed here for three nights in July and found the hotel to be fantastic. We had a beautiful room, it was huge and very, very clean, and the whole hotel was to the same standard. Definitely not in need of renovations, perhaps upgrades have taken place since those negative reviews were written. The food was great and very affordable and the bar had a very friendly atmosphere due to the staff. Dont be put off, I had a great experience and will definitely be returning.

My husband and I just had a wonderful two night b and b and one dinner deal at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel. We had never been there before but would recommend it because it was excellent value for money, staff very friendly, lovely views, great facilities and a nice room. The only slightly negative point - but not a major problem, was that someone had obviously smoked in our room before and we are both non-smokers, but everything else was super. The food was very good - we had dinner our first night and were impressed at the value for money, so decided to eat in the hotel the next night too! We decided to eat in the bar and the barman could not have been more accommodating. Would definitely go back!

We booked this hotel through Lidl breaks 130euro for a one night stay including dinner for two adults and two kids.
The hotel was fully booked but that did not affect service at all. Our room was a triple room with a camp bed as all family rooms were taken but it was clean, spacious and well maintained.
Dinner was great and could not be faulted - they even had wine specials of 12euro a bottle or 10 euro for 50cl - great in this economic climate.
Our boys enjoyed the pool which was not busy surprisingly! Don't forget your swimming caps thoug. It was clean and we even got a turn in the steam room and jacuzzi. There was a well equipped gym as well.
Breakfast was good too.
There was a kids club but we did not use it.
The staff were all well mannered, friendly, helpful and local and deserve a special mention.
We hope to return soon and would recommend this hotel for families.
