                Breakfast was very good and was served promptly.Staff where friendly and co-operative.View's from hotel room good.

                Although the room was clean,the shower was in a bad state and had mould in it.The write up for the hotel said all rooms had hair drier but none of them had.(I had booked three rooms for a party of 8)

                the hotel was very good, the staff was polite and the room was very nice and comfy. the location was also very good as it wasnt too far from the pleasure beach and the night life

              • Group of friends
                5.4

                Basic but expected for the price however rooms could have been cleaner and more modern. Good breakfast and location.

                Warm welcome from Nathan & his family, Rooms, Linen, Carpets very clean. Lovely breakfast food hot and good portions. Will return for another visit.

                Staff friendly but language issues. Good breakfast.

                One of the rooms smelt of sewage - had to move rooms - the lock on the second room did not work. The whole hotel is in need of repair - water stains on ceilings etc

              • Older travelers
                3.4

                hotelroom cold/damp, door lock didnt lock, television worked on two channels only,no bar or eve meal, needs a good clean and make over

                the full hotel is well past its use by date the bathroom wass just a cupboard the door needed to be left open to use the wash basin. Paid for three nights stayed one

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                We stayed at the hotel over the 22 - 24/7/11 weekend, staff from reception to dinning room very friendly and always willing to help. The location was great, rooms clean although quite tight in terms of space. We would return to this hotel as it was value for money however it is a beechfront hotel and not the ritz.

                Friendly staff. Made friends. food was very good would stay there again.would recommend to friends.and only a short work to the town and pleasure beach.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Friendly pleasant staff made welcome from arriving to leaving .breakfast was superb.

                Room probably a bit too basic and very small.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Gainsborough location is wonderful, every time you look out of the window you would see the road very lively & sea front rooms have excellent views.

                I think small fine tuning would help lift the standard by much. E.G. fridge in some of the rooms, upgrade the room furniture etc

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Staff were fantastic, friendly and helpfull made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was excellent ,great sea view

                6.2

                The food was good.

                Was very decieving frm the internet to what it astually looked like and I didn't get a sea veiw.

              • Older travelers
                4.6

                Good breakfast and location we paid the extra for a sea view and it was money well spent

                There was no entertainment apart from television or cds, glad I paid the extra for a front facing room because the other rooms looked out over the rear car park and 3 walls
