I stayed at The Gateway for the first time last weekend when on a fitness and juicing retreat and it was fabulous. Angela kindly waited for me to arrive (rather late), provided a warm welcome and was the perfect host for the weekend. The Gateway is an immaculate and lovely Bed and Breakfast and I highly recommend you stay here...

The Gateway is a wonderful bed and breakfast and I've had the opportunity to stay there on 6 occasions now over the past 2 years. A friendly, warm, welcoming, immaculate and beautiful bed and breakfast. Truly a must when visiting Morecambe bay.

Angela welcomed us with a bottle of bubbly for our special stay before showing us to our room. A lovely big room with tea and coffee facilities and a fab sea view. The bed was so comfy, we did struggle to drag ourselves out of it but after a lovely shower with complimentary toiletries and fluffy bathrobes, we woke up...

Loved my week staying here, Angela really made me feel at home! Breakfast is lovely and if you want something slightly off menu Angela is more than happy to make it for you if she can! If I'm ever back in the area I will definitely be staying here again!

Great location, easy to find and park. We were welcomed by the lovely Angela and made to feel very welcome and at ease. Our family room was perfect, the hotel clean and tidy, and the breakfast great. The flowers in the back garden were truly amazing. What's not to like. Good value too. Just a great B&B!

Really lovely, comfortable b and b, with great hosts, the breakfasts are wonderful, and you also get little added extras in the bedrooms, jar of sweets, as well as the normal tea/coffee tray, but even that has plenty of items on it, the rooms are clean and bright, we had a wonderful stay, thank you

We'll definitely come again - great location and view. Angela was attentive to our needs and keeps a clean, well-appointed guest house. The breakfast was delicious, parking was easy and the hanging baskets a delight.

We were booked in for a one night stop. It was the start of cycling trip through Lake District and so further to John O'Groats in Scotland. The Gateway is a splendid B & B. Comfortable bed. Very welcoming hosts too. The breakfast was superb, full English breakfast and fresh coffee. Absolutely recommended.

Why bother with a hotel when you can stay at a place like this? Ideally situated just to the north of Morecambe, close to the picturesque bay, in the lovely Hest Bank, it gives easy access to the Lakes. It is great value at £60 per night for a large comfortable, well fitted, double room with an excellent breakfast. And...
