Handy Location

The Kingsgate is in a very handy location. My wife and I caught the bus from the airport(free if you are a senior and off peak) and then just walked a little way up the hill to the hotel. Staff were courteous and we got an hour later check out when we left. It is handy to the Cathedral and also the Backbencher Pub where you can soak up the atmosphere in both places. Good value also.

Great Value City Hotel

Very helpful staff, in particular the guy running the bar. 15 minute walk to sporting events at the Arena so perfect for my trip to the football.

Great location!

I spent 2 nights at the Kingsgate. The room was small and a wee bit dated, but clean and perfectly adequate. The location though was majic. I could walk to my course, walked to dinner with my nephew and enjoyed seeing the sea and the beehive from my window! The staff were friendly and helpful and pointed me in the right direction on all my queries.

issue with procedure

My first night of stay went without a hitch. The rooms have very thin walls though and I heard most of a telephone conversation in the next door room. the second night however I was woken at 4am with someone knocking on my door saying it was the manager. I didn't get time to answer before a man in only his underpants and sox was let into my room. He had been drinking and had no idea where he was. I asked him to leave and fortunately he did. I rang reception and got no reply. a short time later reception rang me and apologised and explained that they had got the wrong room. The next morning I asked to be contacted (as the manager was not in the hotel) with the result of what was going to change in their procedures to make sure that this didn't happen again. three days later I am still waiting for an email. Not really good enough I think. Won't be staying at the Kingsgate again due to the very poor follow up/service.
