Absolutely loved our stay at Gainsborough bath spa, staff are welcoming, hotel is beautiful. Favourite part was Spa village. The location was great, in the middle of city centre walking distance to all historical spots, shops, cafes and restaurants. We would love to come back in Winter during Christmas.

Good hotel, not very convenient if have a buggy as entrance to the hotel via steep stairs and there is no porter to lift the buggy up, thankfully concierge were very helpful. Breakfast was fully booked so we didnt get to enjoy it and the main restaurant is not opened which we were very much looking forward to it.
