    The Gainsborough " Just be aware of the noise"

    Ratings scored out of 6
    Overall Score: 5
    Value for money: rated 4/6
    Location: rated 6/6
    Cleanliness: rated 4/6
    Staff Rating: rated 4/6

    I liked this hotel even though I had read about the noise from the nearby club at the weekends. I was in London on holiday and as I had no intention of going to bed early it did not worry me at all. As it was, it was not anywhere near as bad as what some reviewers had stated. Rest of the hotel is OK, staff friendly but all struggled to be understood.
