Could not fault this hotel. Room was beautiful with four poster bed and spa bath. Enjoyed a meal in the restaruant and breakfast in the morning. Both of which were great quality meals. Central location. All staff were really friendly and helpful. Would highly recomend this hotel.

The new extension and public areas we visited had been tastefully decorated in a contemporary style that complimented the outside of the building . However our room , which was a good size was stuck in the 70s . The regency stripe wall paper in the bedroom and bathroom was not a good style . The bed was comfortable and...

We recently married at the gables hotel on 21/02/17. Our day was fantastic and all our needs were met! We could not have asked for a more perfect day. The food was delicious and the service from the staff was brilliant. The rooms are in need of some attention but overall this did not detract from our experience. Thank you...

Frankly the hotel wasn't quite what I'd expected. The website photos suggest an upmarket boutique feel, however, on arrival it's not as smart. Public areas feel dated and a little rough. Pet hate, throughout the hotel/ rooms, were hand-written/typed notes sellotaped to doors/ windows throughout the place - "don't open" - "no entry" whatever...Even had one blue-tacked to the mirror...
