The Gables Guest House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the gables guest house in there 1st floor apartment and can not find fault with the service or accomodation. Would visit this guest house again. Great selection at breakfast and very helpful staff/owners in relation to local attractions. The self contained apartment is very spacious and we just loved the built in wardrobes and corner bath/shower.

Very conveniently located. Attractive building. Very clean modern room and ensuite fully equipped even to ear plugs which were not at all necessary. We had to stop the English breakfast after three days as trousers started to tighten up, but it was really difficult not to order it every day. However alternative equally tempting.Owners very friendly and ready to help with advice etc. We spent seven nights and could not find anything to criticise and would certainly recommend it to anyone and more importantly, we shall return when in area.

The Gables is set back from the busy Newark Road in a 1920's detached house. The rooms are spotless and furnished in the contemporary manner with all the facilities that visitors expect. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast the following morning was excellent. My only comment was that it felt a little soulless but the owners were friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: It can be noisy at the front if you need to open the window (the rooms get hot in summer).

We had a lovely stay here. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. I work long hours during the week so this was a needed leisure break visiting friends at the weekend. Breakfast finishes at 8:45am on a weekend, this was too early for me so I missed it. A later breakfast to even 9:30am on the weekends would make the leisure stay more enjoyable. However we couldn't fault the room and the host who very helpful and polite!

Many thanks for taking the time to write and leave your review
The timing for breakfast is set so as to allow people to finish breakfast then shower if they need to and then get packed up ready for check out at 10am which is the time the chambermaid service starts
We allow our two chambermaids 45 minutes in each room (both of them per room) so that all the little jobs (and big jobs) one would expect to be done are done and that the rooms are left in tip top condition as is the norm with us, ready for the next guest (which on this particular occasion was you)
With eight rooms to look after if all eight rooms are to completely change (and this does happen regularly) this take us right to the wire of 4pm which is when we start check in and new guests start arriving for their own particular stay

In this industry one is always battling against the clock but we do like to think that we have managed to get the balance right for the timing of the house to operate
I hope this helps explain how the guest house operates
In the meantime we are glad you enjoyed your weekend stay with us and hopefully you might consider using us again if you are ever in the area.

The Gables is a quality B&B. The rooms are furnished to a high standard and are very comfortable. Breakfast was very good with varied options.
An environmentally friendly place and the owners even passed on their experience on having solar heating fitted. Plenty of parking and a warm welcome from the 3 legged cat!
We booked as it was a good location to meet friends from Yorkshire.

Room Tip: Away from the front is best

Very homely and comfortable. Spotlessly clean. A great deal of thought and effort has gone into this excellent guesthouse. We stayed there for our daughter's Graduation from Lincoln University and the owner arranged for our early check in to enable us to get ready to attend the ceremony in plenty of time. Brilliant breakfast including lovely homemade and yoghurt. Excellent value for money. A great deal better than 4/5 star hotels we have stayed in. The cat in residence is wonderful.
