I stayed for 1 night at this hotel which was booked through my company and must say that, this is lovely hotel which still holds some of its feel of a boarding school. As soon as I entered, I was greeted a big smile from Michelle who jointly owns and manages this hotel with Robert her husband.
Robert also is the Chef and prepared a lovely evening dinner and went out of his way to cook me something that did not feature on the evening's menu - I really appreciated this which is what makes all the difference between a large corporate run hotel and a local, family run establishment that can adopt and personalise service. Breakfast was freshly prepared, nice and hot and tasty just as the evening meal.
My room was lovely, spacious, clean and tidy throughout just like the rest of the hotel. Just before my evening meal I had time to have a bit of chat with Michelle and Robert who showed me some of the old photos of the school staff and students - amazing history which has been retained to some extent by the couple.
I would definitely stay again and would most certainly recommend to anyone who is visiting Gainsborough for business or pleasure.
Thank you Michelle and Robert.
