We have stayed at the Gainsboro and so pleased with the location, So close to the station, handy for the seafront and an easy walk along the promenade to Abbey Sands for a coffee or meal, with the Princess Theatre so close too. Sue & Stuart make you feel really welcome and the house is spotless. Would thoroughly recommend the... More

The breakfast menu was excellent, with a choice of cereals, cooked breakfasts, (specifically cooked to your taste), toast,... More

Lovely and clean. Nice people. Breakfast nice but too early....start at 8.30 and finish at 9. Says free wifi but there was none. Short walk to the front and in a quiet area. Decent size on-suite with toiletries added in.
