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

Arrived at accommodation with a few heavy bags. Guy behind the counter did not offer to help carry the bags up. The guy took me to the room and noted the bed hadn't been made properly yet. I asked if they were fresh sheets. He said yes. Unfortunately, come time for bed, the sheets were very damp! Bed went down... More

Stayed here for the night before flying from Gatwick - cheap, clean,very basic and smelt a bit musty. You get what you pay for and as it was only for one night it wasn't a problem but I wouldn't want to stay any longer than that.

Whoever cleans the Gainsborough Lodge deserves a bonus - it was exceptionally clean. The room was much as you would expect from a guest house of this type - we certainly weren't disappointed. The receptionist was unfriendly. The breakfast was not great and the prunes and grapefruit segments were, on our second morning, untouched and in the same bowl from... More

We stayed here for one night before flying from Gatwick, on a deal that included 12 days parking and free transfers to and from the airport. The hotel looks a little tired from the outside, but there was refurbishment work going on and we were given one of the newly refurbished rooms, which proved to be just fine for our... More
