“What a Find! ”
Reviewed 28 February 2014 via mobile

From the offset this hotel exceeded our expectations and continued to do so for the whole stay! Great size rooms with everything you could need. Bar and restaurant area are great and the breakfast was superb - variety and quality (best mushrooms I've ever had)! We used the hotel as a base for a trip to the West Midlands Safari Park which is within spitting distance. Very helpful and professional staff advised we could buy discounted tickets from them which was an added bonus. It's rare you get more than you expect - but we definitely did at this hotel.

The Gainsborough House Hotel is lovely. Iv stayed there twice an will defiantly going back, in fact we're booked in for the Champagne package in March. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. It's a shame we don't live nearer because we would be visiting alot more :)

We took two friends to stay at one of the local hotels as a treat to ourselves, and if we were ever asked to recommend an Hotel local to Kidderminster then we could do so with confidence.

This hotel did not disappoint, the receptionist was friendly, humorous and efficient.
The rooms are clean and well appointed with very good en-suite facilities.
I personally do not like to have television in an hotel bar. Neither do I like a 'One arm Bandit' in a Reception area, but I know others that do so.
Breakfast served from 8-00am - 10am is self service with a good choice of starters and a full English is offered, so that you can have as much of each item as you wish, the only downside for us was that scrambled egg was the only egg dish available. A continental alternative breakfast is also available, and a vegetarian option if you prefer..
I would have liked to see a bowl of sugar next to the cereals instead of finger packets of sugar at the table,
If you are in town stay at the Gainsborough.

Clean room, modern decor, breakfast buffet was good quality and good value. The lounge/bar and restaurant had a good modern, chic atmosphere. The main reception had a slot machine in it which I thought out of place and lowered the tone (perhaps move it to the bar area?).

I stayed here for one night on business. The hotel is nicely decorated with comfortable surroundings. All the staff were amiable and the food was very good. The breakfast is a buffet breakfast and given the choice I would prefer fresh cooked. The room was comfortable. No complaints, would stop here again.

We attended an event at the Gainsborough and had a lovely evening. On arrival, there is plenty of parking - reception looks a bit dated but when we went to our room we were very pleased. Very clean and fresh with a comfortable bed.(No disguised toilet smells, all very clean).
We had a good evening in the events room and breakfast was lovely; with pleasant ladies serving and nothing seemed too much trouble to them.
I left my apple plug and charger and was thrilled to hear that they had found and kept it for me. I now have it safely returned. Thank you Gainsborough. We would recommend you to others.
