Surprisingly very nice British-style pub, with: - perfect beer (maybe, not so good as in Europe, but for the Gulf it is really good). A selection frome a dozen of sorts. - perfect food. My burger tasted like a good burger, not like a shoe sole (like it often happens in other pubs). - perfect music. Thanks for the rock-n-roll...

Although the Gulf Hotel had been highly rated, it was only through experiencing the service that one can really appreciate the quality of this hotel.

Did not enjoy staying here. Small rooms. Service was terrible. An hour to get a drink at the pool. Then 45min wait for the cheque. Service in the restaurants was very slow too! Long queue at check in and check out. Definitely not 5 star service! Will not come back.

This is an average hotel in Bahrain, not a 5 star. I've stayed in better and I wouldn't select this hotel again. The welcome was good and check in very quick, as was the check out. The room was average, it had everything that we needed, but no special touches, that you'd expect from the hotel. The bed was very...
