Very large room with huge comfortable bed and bathroom with bath and shower over. Always very clean, and surprisingly quiet, even when a function on. Best part, the really friendly staff who could not be more pleasant and helpful, makes it a superb home away from home. Dinner in the hotel, the food was excellent with a varied menu with... More

Stayed overnight at a wedding function. The function suite facilities were well appointed and modern. The meal was good and the bar well staffed. The accommodation was nice and comfortable but the stand out feature was the friendly staff who were really pleasant and helpful.

This was my first stay at the Gailes and it was for a single night. I was due to be in the area for 4 nights but had to stay in 2 other Hotels for various reasons. I decidedly would have preferred to spend all my time at the Gailes. The room was large, comfortable, well appointed and very clean.... More

Very large room with huge comfortable bed and bathroom with bath and shower over. Lovely toiletries. The shower head was fixed and quite high up and there was no complimentary shower cap, but that was the only (very trivial) negative. Had dinner in the hotel both nights. The food was excellent with a varied menu with something for everyone and... More
