Doorway pages are created to do well for particular keywords rankings. They are bad for users because they are created to spam the index of search engines. This type of pages send the users to different page instead of that results in search engine.
Ofcourse it is the black hat SEO technique to set poor quality page for particular keywords in search engine which is not useful to users.

Doorway Pages are basically created to rank highly for particular search engines queries. Google has itself proclaimed it as a web spam. The Google search team is constantly working on techniques to reduce impact of such web spam.

So I guess you have already figured it out by my explanation that this technique comes under black hat.
