We had a lovely stay at the Gattonside Heritage. A lovely large bedroom on the ground floor. The traffic noise was a concern, but it didn't wake us up at all. The location gave us easy access to Salamanca Market and restaurants, the B&B was City Central. The breakfast was fantastic, though here was no choice from a menu selection.... More

Five minutes from Salamanca and the 'Blue eye' restaurant in a lovely restored mansion with a silent room. Lounge and breakfast rooms are very stylish, and the food was good. Truly attentional personnel, and then we had some long discussions with Christine. We tasted her red wine, which was very good, but as she was not there the last morning... More

Had a fabulous stay at gattonside. Enjoyed the amazing breakfasts very much, and our host Chrissie Richardson provided us with some excellent suggestions for our trip to to Derwent Valley. The location allowed for lots of walking to restaurants, into the city itself, sightseeing wonderful old buildings. The room was beautifully appointed, bathroom large and we had internet connection when... More

I expect attention to detail when paying for a 'premium' stay. The room was small and rather down at heel. Wifi so slow as to be useless, a fact acknowledged when complained about, the part-time manager didn't have the correct dates for our stay, dying flowers in the bathroom,stains on the carpet,odd broken hooks(?) on the back of the door,...

Don't bother trying to get in before 2pm, this is a self-service 'boutique' B&B. The 'manager' sits in a little office behind the residence, so you'll have to rely upon other guests to show you around when you arrive. The comment "Hey, are you trying to take my job?" was beyond ironic. The room we're paying $250+ per night for... More

We stayed at this B&B for three nights. Our room was exactly as pictured but somehow was actually even better than the pictures. It was clean, spacious, and comfortable. There was a fresh bouquet of roses that smelled amazing to welcome our arrival. Our bathroom was very large, and we were both able to soak in the tub while watching... More

From the moment you contact the Redawning Group, which manages Gattonside, your experience is made easy. Redawning understands that once basic contact details have been provided and payment made it knows enough. Hence you can arrive at Gattonside when convenient, enter the assigned code to the external door and find your room. Too easy!! Our room felt exceptional; bright, beautifully... More

Everything about this wonderful property made us think how wonderful it must have been before "brand" hotel chains! Staff were welcoming and could not have done more, location was ideal and the price was surprising and great value. The room was beautiful and maintained in exactly the way you would imagine it would have been 100 years ago (with all... More

We cannot say enough about this gorgeous heritage B&B and its staff! We arrived at night but found our rooms ready, handsomely furnished and cosy. Unfortunately 2 of us were suffering illness, but next morning Christine, our hostess, not only knew of a nearby doctor, but actually called to get us an appointment first thing and then took us there!...
