“Really helpful staff”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Our stay could not have been better. The staff were totally welcoming and helpful. Excellent value for money. The location suited us beautifully enabling us to take a 20 minute walk to the town centre- a refreshing break after our long car journey.

Rooms are modern with very a comfortable bed. The room was clean and tidy. At the time there were two Christmas parties but no noise heard from the room, on the second floor. Would definitely recommend for a base to visit the surrounding area. Also very easy to find. Thank you.

Me and my Wife came here in November 2013 as we were visiting family in Kidderminster. The hotel has been there for over 30 years and shows it's age in places. However the bed was very very comfy, and the sound proofing was brilliant(Wedding parties!)! For the price we paid, I'm very happy with the staff and the room!

We couldn't have asked for anything better, Jill Adams co-ordinated our Wedding Day to our exact specifications and the day passed by smoothly & perfectly, we couldn't have managed it without her, she was exceptional as were all the staff who played their part in making our day even more special ! We had a fabulous day and night in a lovely comfortable room with an excellant breakfast the following morning.

We couldn't fault the Gainsborough or it's staff and would certainly recommend it to anyone organizing a wedding or even just accommodation!

Thank to all for our amazing Wedding Day !!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in November, 2013. We stayed on an all-inclusive basis paid for by our daughter as a birthday treat.

The welcome at reception was very good, and because we were a little early to check in, we went straight to the bar for our included lunch. This was excellent, freshly made beef and cheese sandwiches and home made soup. We were then able to check in , still before the advertised time.

The room was again excellent, large firm bed, furniture in prime condition, and a recently decorated room. The bathroom was a nice size, spotless, with very clean towels and extras for shower & bath, Air conditioning unit was easy to use to provide an ideal temperature, a flat screen tv, tea & coffee making facilities and free wi-fi.

The restaurant was quiet, but the service and food were top-quality, the menu mainly grills and pasta.

Breakfast was self-service, and the food was like the rest of the time, top-quality, with the bonus that you can eat as little or as much as you like.

The reception staff were helpful at all times and very easy to approach.

The bar area is fairly large with a tv, but a separate area away from it if you want to read or relax and chat.

All in all, this was a very pleasant stay in a lovely, spotlessly clean hotel with excellent food.

It is situated about a 20 minute walk away from the town centre and not far from Bewdley, easily accessible by taxi.

If you are staying on an all-inclusive basis as we were it is certainly very good value for money, wine, beers, soft drinks and tea & coffee included and available most of the time. I would certainly recommend a stay here.

We stayed at the hotel on a 2 night offer that included lunch, evening meal and breakfast. It was more than well worth the money for a number of reasons. The room was clean and ample for our needs. It was quiet and we slept soundly (though our stay was during the week so cannot comment on what it would be like at the weekend). The free wi-fi (available in the rooms too) was an extremely useful extra. The bar and dining room decor was chic. Above all the desk and waiting service friendly and helpful. In terms of location, this was also good as the hotel situated within walking distance from the main town. Therefore, package deal aside, I would definitely recommend this hotel for all the above reasons too!

We stayed at this hotel last week and it wasn't an experience I want to remember. First walking into the room smelt stale and unwelcoming. The other guests staying in the hotel were also a problem waking us up various times in the night which left us to complain to reception in the middle of the night (we weren't the only ones) the room was very warm with no instruction to turn the heating off or down. I will not be staying here again in a rush !
