My Husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for a midweek break . It was our first time to stay in this type of accommodation Lodge / Motel. From the first telephone conversation the staff where very friendly. The room is basic but clean & warm and the sheets on the huge King size bed where so comfortable. We only had breakfast here and it was amazing on both mornings, served to your table which I like, I hate all the getting up & down for buffet breakfasts. We are at the Local Indian restaurant one evening and the staff & food where fantastic . On another evening we ate in Harveys Point and again our food was excellent. The house attached to the Lodge and where breakfast and Lunch are served is a very beautiful old house. There is loads of parking space and you literally on the door step of Donegal town if you wish to do some shopping or walk to a bar or restaurant in the evening as The Gateway stop serving food at 5. We will return and I will definitely tell our friends of this little Gem .

We had the pleasure of staying in the gateway lodge in October and what a wonderful place to stay. The staff went above and beyond to be helpful, particularly as we were stranded with no car, including allowing a late check out. The breakfast was truly the most delicious we ever had and our children we greeted with kindness by everyone they met. A wonderful base to explore donegal town and the hospitality it has to offer.

Visited Donegal for our honeymoon and this was the best hotel that we visited. We loved our cute spacious room and the amazing restaurant next door (Blas). Within walking distance of the downtown area and the Donegal Castle. Best experience and would love to go back.

Location is great in walking distance to town main strip with good few restaurants. Good base point for exploring attractions which this part of country has to offer.Lady on reception was nice and professional. Room was located on small curt yard. We got key so no need to walk through reception every time. Room was ok size, minimalistic but has everything you need during short stay. It was clean with comfortable bed maybe bit dark but it could be down to weather as sky was grey during our stay. It’s nothing spectacular but it’s all what I need for this kind of short break and definitely value for money. Best part of our stay was breakfast. It’s served in cafe which is part of building. Decor is beautiful and breakfast is just amazing.Very clever menu with plenty options. Everything cooked perfect. As not big fan of traditional fried Irish breakfast I was over the moon to see alternative options. Goat cheese on toast sourdough was amazing. Husband had full Irish and was equally happy. Service was perfect as well attentive but not over the top.Bravo. I would stay again.
