Visited Mother's Day with my mother in law for lunch. Food, service and setting were very good. I highly recommend the deserts as they were excellent. It's a bit far distance wise for us so probably won't be back but highly recommend for locals.

Stayed at Gailes Hotel as part of a wedding party last weekend and loved the place. Everyone is so nice and friendly here. Had some great banter with the Bar staff. The rooms were spotless and food excellent. Cannot fault the experience one bit. Well done to everyone at Gailes for making our visit so enjoyable.

We stayed here for an overnight that we had purchased on Itison. The hotel itself was clean and tidy even if it did feel a little like a Travel Lodge when you enter the Lobby. Reception staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, which was to be the theme of our stay. Our room was pleasant, if not outstanding, although my... More

Visited a few times now either just for a coffee and cake, breakfast or meal. Friendly staff. Good food at a reasonable price. Lovely setting. Only downfall are the awful bread like scones. The worst I have ever had. More like a fruit bread than a scone. No where else bakes them like this, even other Simpsinn places are slightly... More
