Stayed here with friends, the hotel is looking tired and in need of some refurbishment. On arrival there was a large group of men surrounding the entrance smoking. Although two people booked per room we were only provided with towels for one so had to ask for more, the door to the bathroom also had no handle which meant it... More

Myself and a friend stayed here for the night to catch an early lowcost flight the following morning. Yes, there is an airport shuttle - but there is something to keep in mind. Should you book through the hotel website directly, or call the hotel directly to book a room - you will receive a complimentary airport transfer each way.... More

If you're looking for a 5 star hotel and a bed for a night prior to flying the night before there are plenty of those around Gatwick ( This guest house is not one of them!) however, if, like us, you need a place to sleep in clean sheets, with staff who are very accommodating, a great cooked breakfast for...

I like it here. The rooms are clean and tidy and look like they have undegone recent refurbishment. There is a pick-up and drop-off service to and from the airport (London Gatwick) for £5 a go from 6am until 11pm. You just need to contact the accommodation for this. The only downside is that there is no disabled access or... More

I do not like to give a bad review however, please please please avoid this terrible place. Everything about it is horrific as backed up by most of the other reviews so i am not going to go into detail with regards to that, it is not worth my time but the worst for me personally was the loudness of...

I have stayed in a fair share of dumpy hotels/hostels but this one was the absolute worst! When you walk inside the lobby, it smells disgusting! There only seemed to be two people working at the hotel, a young guy who seeemd to do everything and the obese owner who just rips people off. The poor young guy had to... More

I stayed in the probably cheapest room you can imagine. It is located in the annex. The communal area in the corridor is dirty. The room itself is tiny. I expected it to be cheap for the money I've paid, but it was worse than any expectations. I can probably tolerate worn and scratched furniture. But it is not OK... More

Stayed here 1 night before going to Gatwick for an early flight. It was about a 5 minute walk from Horley train station. We had a room in the annex which was ok, warm and clean enough (could've done with a dust to freshen the room up though). Odd sign in the bathroom stating that unless the door was closed... More

We stayed for one night only for half the price of the cheapest Gatwick hotel. The room was compact but very clean and modern and the en suite likewise. The bed was also very comfortable, ensuring a good night's sleep before an early flight. It is a 3 minute train ride from Gatwick and a 10 minute walk from Horley... More

Six of us stayed here prior to a flight from Gatwick the next day. The 3 rooms were basic but clean and comfortable and for 1 night it was fine. The transfer to the airport took 5 minutes and was perfect - pick up on return was just as good The staff were helpful and we had dinner in a... More
