The rooms are very clean, comfortable and there is a good supply of tea, coffee & biscuits in the room. Breakfast, as always, was excellent!

We have stayed at the Gainsboro before and again Sue and Stuart made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and comfortable with complimentary tea, coffee with biscuits. The breakfast was delicious with a great choice. The house is very convenient near to the train station and sea front with just a short stroll to the town centre.... More

We stayed for the second time in the family suite at the Gainsboro for a seven night stay and once again the experience was first class. The family suite is ideal as the boys (aged 13 and 15) have a room of their own with a connecting door to our room. Stuart and Sue made sure every aspect of our... More

We have stayed at the Gainsboro a few times before but did not visit last year. We thought that we would make the most of the good weather and booked a weekend to celebrate our anniversary. Sue and Stuart have improved the decorating in some rooms since our last visit and the previous great service has not changed. The rooms... More
