Went to the hotel with my friend on an itison deal from our hubby's. Fantastic stay, spotless rooms, great food and the staff - I've never stayed anywhere with such happy, friendly staff. Will definitely return!

Spent a great evening in the Gails for a family birthday party, the party was well organised by the team at the Gails a special mention to Emma who helped make the night run smoothly. The food was enjoyed by everyone even the kids menu was excellent. The team let us into the room we hired early so we could... More

We stayed for a wedding on 8th February and found all the staff incredibly helpful and friendly, from the reception ladies to the cleaners and the waiting/bar staff. It made our stay such a happy one and thank you. Rooms were spotless , well equipped and comfortable. The annexe for the wedding venue was very stylish, spacious and once again... More

Visited this restaurant at lunch time, the food was nice. However I felt the service was rather slow considering the amount of staff. I would visit this restaurant again however I would stay clear of the cheesecake as it was very disappointing.

My daughter just very recently got married in the Gailes Hotel and several family members stayed there for one or two nights. The family meal we had the evening before the wedding was lovely, a good menu with plenty of choice and the food was really nice and well presented. The bedrooms were very clean and comfortable so a good... More

visited over the weekend. PArty of 15. Food average. Nothing spectacular. Average choices on menu. Staff forgot things that should have accompanied the meal and had to be asked to bring them, Sticky toffee pudding was smallest thinest portion I have ever seen, warm, not hot and very sparse on the sauce. Asked for warmer portion with more sauce and... More

Staff were all really friendly and accommodating. Rooms were nice and clean, looked more like a premier inn or travel lodge than a 4 star hotel though. Food was ok, fish and chips portion sizes were weird - about a teaspoon of mushy peas and loads of oversized chips. The fish itself was good but the chips were pretty horrible... More

Stayed at this hotel using an itison voucher. Couldn't believe the quality of the hotel and food for the bargain price we paid. The staff were attentive. Great standard of hotel. Golf course next to it. The spa was very good too.
