This excellent guesthouse is the perfect place to spend a night if you have an early flight from Gatwick. Less than 15 mins from the airport, it is in a beautiful little village with plenty of eating possibilities. The bedroom is lovely and the beds are comfortable. There is a sink in the room and tea-making facilities, and if you're... More

Brian and Farida are two of the nicest people you could want to meet. My wife and I were made really welcome.

We will dedfinitely use... More

Faced with a trek across London in rush hour I elected to travel out to the Horley area the day before my flight. I arrived just after the lunch hour dropped off my luggage and took the bus to Reigate to spend the afternoon exploring and doing a bit of last minute shopping. The guesthouse is a bit of a... More

Brian and Farida are a lovely helpful couple. The location is great for a local bus to Gatwick airport. The breakfast is well cooked. I tend to book the cheapest room which is small but the price happily reflects this correctly.

We had the ground floor room for our overnight stay prior to a trip to the USA. It was a little crowded with a double and a single bed in it but that's probably better than hauling your stuff up a narrow staircase. On our return when we went to pick up our car, I had a battery problem and... More

Brian and Falida were very friendly hosts, very welcoming, and great to talk to. Our room was fine and very comfortable. It's a little dated, but e found this to be fine to suit our need as a place to stay close to the airport. The location couldn't be much better for Gatwick as it's just down the road. The... More

I spent 14 nights in Melville Lodge as I was doing an electrical course in Crawley. Brian and Farida are very nice and helpful people. I can definitely recommend this place to everyone. They serve an excellent full english breakfast :)

Firstly brian and farida were so welcoming, we were actually transferred here from another hotel, and I was relieved when I got here, it was far cleaner, cosier and the owners were far more friendly. Would stay here again for sure.
