We were picked up and dropped off at Gatwick Airport without any problem, as promised by the Manager. He was pleasant, courteous, unpretentious, and helpful. Gainsborough Lodge is cozy and quaint. It is steps away from Horley Town Center on a quiet street. I noticed there were a number of other lodgings but like my son said, " I love... More

Despite the reviews of this place, you cannot fault it at all. It's basic and does the job, is only 5 minute walk to a pub and near Gatwick if you need it. The rooms were clean enough and spacious enough and did the job Cannot fault it at all for the price. Parking was also handy

Stayed here as I was flying to Turkey on an early flight. The hotel is dark, rooms very basic, tiny shower and I was kept awake by very noisy door banging all night. I know you get what you pay for but I was hoping for a bit more than 2 hours sleep. Wouldn't stay here again

We booked a double room online for one night B&B ensuite for two for £50. Big triple room, clean and tidy, comfortable bed - friendly staff, nice cooked breakfast. Shuttle available to Gatwick airport and long-stay parking available at just £3/night. We weren't flying anywhere just needed a hotel - all good value. Two minor problems, the bathroom door had...

We had a bad experience last year with a budget hotel pre-flight but this was much better. Everything was plain and simple and if that's all you want it's perfect. It's clean. The bed was comfortable. There was very little noise (all from the room above rather than the airport). The cooked breakfast was freshly prepared with self-serve cereals, fruit,... More

This hotel came at a good price and was close to Gatwick which was important as I had an early departure. The room came with ensuite bathroom and the bedding was clean. Horley was a few minutes walk down the road with many bars, restaurants, supermarkets and hairdresser... all a travellers needs. However what let this hotel down was the... More

We stayed about a maximum of 7 hours between arriving late from work and leaving early for a flight from Gatwick. Appreciated the tea and coffee in the room. Reception could use some better people skills, but not rude. We've tried other places for the same reason which we enjoyed better, but overall, it adequately meets a need.

This place was booked for me and was not my choice. The room was basic, the bed was OK, but everything was a bit jaded and poorly laid out. On arrival we were informed we had to pay £4 per night for parking. WiFi was £5 per day extra. There was no hairdryer in the room. The kettle was entertaining,... More

First piece of advice - take the negative comments here with a very large pinch of salt. There seems to be a "complain for complaining sake, let's see if we can get some money back" culture going around these days. Second, if you are looking for somewhere decent and clean that doesn't cost the earth and is in a handy... More

This is a basic guest house but it is very handy for a short trip to the airport. Room was clean and bed was comfortable and shared bathroom was spotless. I will use the place again as it is great value when the surrounding hotels are all very expensive Drd
