Myself, my mum and my 2 yr old boys stayed at the Gainsborough on Sunday for 2 nights. I must admit I was a little worried after reading the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised.

Dear Sir, Firstly, I am very surprised that you decided to write a review after 13months of even staying in the hotel. I am the Manager of the Gainsborough and I clearly remember the scenario.

Dear Guest, I am very shocked to hear your review as I handled you personally myself. You viewed the room before you even paid any money whatsoever. If you were not happy then you could have mentioned it there and then. I am amazed that you think our hotel would even have the cheek to give you a room with...
