My wife and I stayed for 5 nights from the 14th June. A warm welcome greeted our arrival and we were taken to room 5 on the second floor. An excellent position with lovely views of Boston Square gardens to the sea beyond. The room was well laid out with lots of tea, coffee and chocolate sachets. In addition scones... More

The Gables is a beautiful house with lots of original features. The owners are helpful and accommodating. Lovely furniture and a very comfortable bed. Lovely breakfast cooked to order. It is close to all amenities in the town. Thoughtful added touches like scones and homemade biscuits in our room and fresh flowers in the breakfast room added to a very... More

We have been 6 times summer 2010, winter and summer 2011, summer 2012 and winter and summer 2013. All in all we... More

The owner phoned the next day to cancel our booking saying that children were not... More

We have made the decision this year to not accept young children and we quite clearly state that we do not accept children under the age of 7 on our web site and feel this is a totally unnessassry usage of this review site and we feel that no apology is necessary on this occasion. More

We stayed at the Gables for just the one night, but we were very impressed with the room for the price, £30 off the normal price for late booking or our last minute decision to visit family in the area. Yes we booked literally last minute, the day we decided to go but what a bargain for the service provided.... More

Just spent a lovely Xmas break at the Gables. The welcome we received and the little touches of chocolates and mince pies in the room made the visit all the more special. Will happily visit again when next in the area .
