We arrived and thought we had booked a hotel in run down Eastern Europe from the exterior (sickly pink & dirty cream chequered), however not to judge a book by its cover we checked in. After checking in we found that the lift didn't work and we were on the top floor, we entered our room and there were stains... More

The hotel was shabby and you could only open the window a touch. Staff all very nice and helpful but just not up to scratch. Shabby rooms and decor kettle tripped lights and shower leaked all over the bathroom floor.

The Gilson is located close to the train station, St. Stephens and Princess Quay (Primark). It was very easy to find when arriving by train. The room was decently sized, had big fluffy pillows and a tiny little TV. The room was clean. It had creaky, carpeded floors (like every hotel I have ever stayed at in the UK). I... More

We stayed here for one night as a couple, we had to stay in a twin room as no double rooms were left which was fine. However, the single beds have a plastic topper under all the bedding, so the sheet kept sliding off through the night and the plastic was rustling and quite irritating! The room was very hot...

Although bed clean the room smelt of cigarettes. And attention to the cleaning in corners and on sills could be improved. Staff very friendly and food good. The hotel was in a perfect location for the town centre.
