Stayed here for my birthday and had a great time. Lovely restaurants, just a shame we couldn't take our child in to Sherlock Holmes bar but that's their rule.

We have stayed at other hotels in Bahrain that are very nice urban hotels, but we continue to return to The Gulf as it is truly an oasis in the middle of the city.
