    5.0

    Courtesy of restaurant staff. Breakfast.

    The hotel is in an excellent location and enjoys the advantage of a beautiful building. It enjoys the services of good culinary staff. Otherwise, there is little about this hotel which suggests insight into the needs of those guests who seek a four-star hotel. The lack of monitoring and oversight leads to basic and embarrassing inadequacies in the service given to guests; the management of cheaper and less fortunately-situated hotels in which I have stayed across Europe and Africa have shown far more acumen, care and skill in service delivery. I have paid half as much for service four times as good. I have already begun to advise business associates, professional colleagues and friends to avoid The Gainsborough!

    Friendly, efficient staff. Great and convenient situation for tube station and also within walking distance to Knightbridge, including the famous Harrods! Is situated in a quiet street away from all the hustle and bustle of the thousands of visitors to London. Several excellent, reasonably priced restaurants within 5mins walk from the hotel. Would recommend this hotel to family and friends who are on limited budget

    Small, friendly hotel in a very convenient location for the Albert Hall.

    Shame about the alarm on Friday morning 5 August! With many people not drinking caffeine these days, some caffeine free/herbal tea would have been appreciated. I had to go out and buy my own.

    The friendliness and professional manner of the staff. The room was very comfortable and clean. The location is excellent for the museums, Royal Albert Hall, Kensington High Street shopping is a walk away, as is, Hyde Park and many other London 'must see' sights. Good breakfast.

    For a 4* hotel, some of the areas looked a little 'tired' - the wallpaper near the lift on the second floor was dirty and had been drawn on. The curtains in the lobby had a hook/s missing and therefore did not hang correctly. I was surprised to find an old style tv in the room, rather than a flat screen.

  • Single

    The cleanliness of the hotel is good. The location is perfect, so near to National History Museum. Behind the hotel is a perfect corner with different Restaurants to dine. The staff members are ready to help any time.

    I have found the bed not confortable at all. Not all the matrasses are clean.

  • Single
    10.0

    The hotel was quiet and the rooms around not noisy, nor was the traffic. I liked very much the classical music, at breakfast which, having the Continental, I found excellent. I found the hotel very convenient for bus and tube travel.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    It is within walking distance of South Kensington tube station and in a quiet side street with no passing traffic. The staff are very pleasant. Convenient for the V&A and Science Museum.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    I liked my stay in Gainsborough hotel and felt comfortable there because of the location, cleanliness and very friendly and supportive staff.

    I didn't like the room as it didn't have a window. One small window from the bathroom looked at the backyard which was a rather depressing site...
