The Gables Guest House
Ranked #1 of 1 Tean B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 8, 2011

We stayed this weekend at The Gables with some friends, for a wedding we were attending locally. The lady was friendly, however the place is in real need of some investment/ repairs, it seems a bit uncared for.

Our room was really small and the bed lumpy and squeaky, with pictures falling off the wall. The bathroom was tiny, and the shower in our room was either boiling of freezing. Our friend's shower came out as a fine mist (she rinsed her hair over the sink!) and another friend's shower had no hot water at all. There were a few sachets of shampoo etc in the bathroom which had come free with a magazine and were old and yellow.

When we went for breakfast here was water coming through the ceiling into the breakfast room. It had clearly happened before, as the ceiling was patched up. A towel was put down to soak up the water, which everyone had to walk across as it was in the doorway. The hole in the ceiling was right next to the light and when the light fitting filled of water, we had to ask for it to be switched off as it was looking dangerous! The breakfast was fine, there were cereals, orange juice, tea/coffee and a cooked breakfast that was nothing special.

So, all in all, not a stay we would want to repeat - especially not at £70 for the night!!

We as a family of four, went with another family of four to Alton Towers and had booked the guest house as it was one of the few we could find in the area with two 'family rooms' that could accommodate us.
The rooms on our arrival consisted of very old very very thin mattresses on extremely squeeky beds that were the most uncomfortable we ever slept in. The children 3 of whom are tall teenagers, slept on small mattresses as hard as rocks on the floor, the beds were all cramped together and the rooms looked nothing like the website. The 'en suite' consisted of a caravan type bathroom with peeling celings. Cleanliness was not the best, the lady of the house was welcoming enough when we arrived but the man of the house was a little too personal at breakfast the next morning. The food was cheap, cold and although presented well the dirt of the kitchen floor which could be seen from the dining room was quite off putting. We were charged £70 per room which we thought was very expensive for the facilities available, we got absolutely no sleep and left the next day feeling jaded. We would definately not return. The property needs a lot of money spending on it to bring it up to date, it was like showering on a campsite and sleeping in a shed.
