“Stress relief”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

My wife and I stayed here overnight before flying out of Gatwick. This was our first time here after staying at 3 other guest houses 7 times in 8 years. We were so impressed with the friendly atmosphere and wonderful room after our last nightmare in Horley. Mary and Joseph were so welcoming, even though I did manage to jam their front door, sorry!! They provide a breakfast to die for, so much so that I couldn't manage any food in the "v" room in the north terminal. Even better they are a short walk to the best pub, in my opinion, in Britain. Ye Old six bells. Thank you for our stay, we will return.

After staying in seven different locations in England and Europe during our two week vacation, Mary and Joseph's guest house was the perfect ending to our trip. Mary picked us up within minutes of us calling from the Gatwick airport. On first meeting her, she is very warm and outgoing. The house is clean and comfortable. Our room was the largest room we had stayed in during our trip. The breakfast was way beyond the normal "continental" breakfast. After breakfast, Mary dropped us off back at the airport. The next time I travel to London, the Gable End Guest House will be my first choice.

Room Tip: We stayed in the family room which has a private attached bathroom.

Three years ago we found this place by accident, having popped off the wrong exit of a roundabout on the way to Gatwick airport. It was so lovely we knew we must stay there when we came to England again. Joseph & Mary are the consummate hosts, and the rooms and food are excellent. This is definitely a Must Do.

We have stayed with Joseph & Mary at Gable End Guest House several times now, usually before travelling abroad for a holiday. They really are lovely, friendly & amusing people, who give everybody a very warm welcome. The house is delightful with clean, comfortable rooms and so conveniently situated for Gatwick Airport. Highly recommended!

Had a very brief overnight stay for an extremely early departure, which sadly meant we were unable to take full advantage of breakfast. Having said that, there was fruit, cereal and juice available for us to help ourselves to. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our taxi to the airport in the early hours of the morning was organised for us. Our car was looked after during our absence and we were collected from the airport within a few minutes of our call. Can't fault that for service!

Just a word of warning....if you're leaving at 3.00ish a.m. and the lower part of the house and, more importantly, staircase is in darkness then don't press the 'light switch' at the bottom of the stairs as it's actually the bell for service and woke mine host!

We were unaware that there is a light switch, for the purpose, on the upper landing. We'll know next time. Sorry Joseph!

Mary and Joseph run a wonderful guest house in Harley which is just minutes from Gatwick airport. It's clean as a whistle and very comfortable. But, what's even more important is the personal attention that you'd get with any issue or concern that you might be facing. For example, during my most most recent trip to England in May, I was not really prepared for the cool Spring evenings. Mary looked at me as I was heading into London for an evening of Bach at St. Martins in the Field and decided that I could not possibly wear a casual windbreaker. She actually lent me her own pretty raincoat, literally giving me the coat off her back. Needless to say, my evening was a great success. I highly recommend Gable End in Horley, which I will continue to visit on an annual basis..
