The Gateway Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Swinford
Reviewed 12 May 2007

The Gateway is a lovely boutique style hotel in the centre of Swinford town in Co. Mayo. We stayed only one night but we are already determined to return. Overall it's a combination of things that made the stay very nice. First of all its a newly renovated hotel and the rooms are first class, 6ft bed and flat screen tv and a really plush bathroom. We got the impression from the moment we checked in that nothing would be too much trouble. The breakfast is a very relaxed affair, buffet style with really good choices and again I am sure if we'd had any special requests they would have been provided with pleasure. The hotel has a really nice bar attached to it and there was a great atmosphere in it on the Friday night. We had lunch there on the Saturday after we'd checked out by chance (the group we were meeting had it arranged there), again the food was hearty and tasty and served with great efficiency and hospitality.

We would really recommend this hotel if you have reason to be in or around Swinford (a great place to base yourself if you are touring in the area). You will not be dissappointed!

Oh, we had a lovely chinese on the Friday night in the Welcome Inn on Market Street (not at all impressive from the outside but fabulous, tasty chinese fayre at really reasonable prices - give it a go!!!

Stayed in this hotel on a business trip with three colleagues. Not that inspiring from the outside but absolutely wonderful on the inside. Large rooms which have been recently refurbished, bathrooms are very good, and overall the accomodation is superb for this size of hotel. Located in the middle of a small town and with a reasonably nice bar attached. The best thing about the hotel was the staff who were very, very helpful and friendly. After checking-out we were waiting in the lobby and the receptionist asked if we would all like some coffee whilst we waited. Never had that happen before in this size of hotel. Fully recomended to anyone staying in the area.

I stayed in this hotel on the 18th of April 2007..It is newly refurbished and can only be described as a lovely hotel. I was travelling with 4 business collegues and we were all in agreement that this an exceptional hotel. Bedrooms are very tastefully decorated and the staff could'nt be more helpful. I do not believe that there is a hotel in Swinford, Co. Mayo that is better than this. If you are travelling to Swinford, Co. Mayo i strongly recommend that you look no further and stay at this hotel. You certainly will not be disappointed. Tea and coffee, along with biscuits were offered even after check out while we were waiting for another collegue, a nice touch. A+++++
