The property was a great location! Rooms were nice and the pools were amazing. My only complaint would be the restaurant was closed for lunch and dinner. The breakfast was expensive and not that great. Lots of places to eat close by so next time I would skip the restaurants.

We stayed at the Gainsborough as part of our minimoon. Prior to arriving the hotel staff were helpful in arranging reservations for us outside of the hotel and arranging some additional room requests. The hotel is in a great location easy to find, within a few minute walk to the major attractions and just off the high street. The hotel wasn’t offering valet parking however the underground car park at Southgate shopping centre is literally 5 minutes away and offers secure parking with cameras. The hotel is very well presented and the check in process was easy, the staff are friendly, welcoming and very attentive. The hotel bar sets a nice atmosphere for drinks with no reservation needed however, it is quite small and very hot as it’s above the spa bath. There were no facilities for room service / restaurant but due to the location of the hotel this wasn’t an issue for us. The room itself was spacious beautifully decorated and well thought out with all the facilities we required and ample storage. The bed was comfortable and firm. The hotel spa baths are open with reservation for hotel guests only, id highly recommend a visit they were so relaxing and quiet with only a few others sharing them which enabled us to use all of the different baths and facilities. All in all a very pleasant stay in a lovely fresh and welcoming well located hotel.

The hotel is well located and has a good spa facility. The hotel was unable to provide us with breakfast on either day ("fully booked") despite the very high daily room rate. Staff were lovely but reception seemed understaffed. Room was ok but nothing special for the rate charged.
