As a single woman travelling on business I had the pleasure of staying many times at The Gulf Hotel. I was always more than pleased with the outstanding meals, exceptional service and do not miss the atmosphere of the Sherlock Holmes Pub!

the staff at the entrance were exceptionally friendly and helpful too. the buffet spoils us with choice. the check in/out desk personnel however, not so friendly. the complimentary vallet service was available to the hotel guests as well as visitors, so, make the best use of it.

Compliments to the all the staff. Every restaurant was great. JoJo, the bar manager at the Typhoon Lounge is always professional and nice, as well as his staff. It is my favorite hotel in Bahrain and will always stay at this hotel during my visits.

We stayed here for 4 nights recently. The hotel was lovely. The platinum lounge was great to take some time out. The rooms were cleaned every day to an exceptional standard. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here on a business trip. As we stayed in the hotel much of the time when we were not working, it was comfortable and decorated as a five star should be. Two complaints. First, the previous tenant smoked in the non smoking room. Not the fault of the hotel. Two, the a/c was in the process of being modified.... More

Boasting 15 different restaurants, an excellent gym & lovely landscaped gardens, this is a classy establishment. My room was big, with an excellent power shower. A good availability of English language channels on the TV. Breakfast was a buffet-type affair, with a varied selection of hot & cold food. For the first time ever I encountered 'veal sausages'.....and hopefully the... More
