The Gungate

I stayed one night having picked The Gungate at random on the internet. Excellent value for money. Nice clean well-appointed room, tea-and coffee in room, quiet room with shower & comfortable bed. 5 minute walk to several pubs and a couple of restaurants for an evening meal. The English breakfast is good and the owner (Sue) very welcoming & helpful. Can't find fault, highly recommended.

So impressed

“So impressed with the service provided at this hotel. Even my 5 year old son was happy when we returned from a meal and his bedding had been changed to Thomas the tank engine duvet set. Great end to our trip to Thomas land (Drayton manor)”
