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

If you are looking for an inexpensive clean overnight stay I recommend he Gainesborough Lodge. I have stayed there for years and it is now being renovated. Breakfast is nice and it's conveniently located to Gatwick airport. The shuttle runs on the half hour.

Chosen for proximity to airport and thed relatively inexpensive parking. Unfortunately there was some building work going on so noise in the afternoon was a pain. Having said that it does need some modernisation so maybe now something is being done. The room was basic, towels threadbare and bed OK for 1 night. Breakfast was nothing to write home about... More

I choose it for the location- almosst next to Gatwick airport. Room very basic- but I was not looking for luxury. Shower was strange and not very effective which is one big con in my opinion. All in all- worth their 34 GBP which I paid for the room.

Friendly place to stay but the rooms need some love and attention, the decor is very dated and the bed was old with linen and blankets when most people, including me, would p[refer duvets these days. there are signs of building work going on at this time, hope that they improve the place as it is in a great location...

5 minutes drive to North terminal Gatwick for under £40 a night, what more do you want? arrived about 5pm and left the following morning at 5am so can'r comment other than about the room. Internet in your room is chargeable, I don't think they make this clear on the Booking.com page (free in the lounge). Tea and coffee in... More

I can't understand why there are so many terrible reviews about this place, i stayed here on several occasions as i was working in the local area and only booked it because it was the cheapest i could find so i wasn't expecting luxury accommodation, i had no problems with any of the rooms i stayed in, they were basic...

We stayed here just before flying off on honeymoon- we just needed a place to rest our heads and I must say that for the money you pay, the rooms are pretty good! They have tea making facilities, bed and shower with toilet- what more do you need? And for such a reasonable price so close to the airport, what... More
