Karen and Colin were absolutely fabulous hosts during my 10 day stay at Vulcan Lodge! Their B&B was clean and very quiet and I really appreciated being in a non-smoking environment. Vulcan Lodge is now my home away from home when visiting family in the area. If you're flying into Gatwick and have a layover, I strongly suggest you look... More

I have just stayed here for two nights and was very impressed. The cleanliness of the rooms and the facilities were excellent. Karen was very welcoming, but not intrusive, and being greeted by the dogs and cat made the visit even nicer. It would be an excellent stopover for travellers flying from Gatwick and, like myself, an excellent vase to... More

We have stayed here a couple of times and have nothing but praise for Karen & Colin, they have made The Vulcan the best B & B in Horley, the rooms are lovely and quiet and everywhere is spotless.

I stayed here one night in transit as I was flying in from Gatwick and back out the next day and did not fancy going all the way in to London.

This was our second stay in the Vulcan Lodge this year and the fact that we have already booked for a third stay, says it all ! It is set back from the road which means that the windows can be opened at night without hearing the traffic noise. It is only a couple of minutes’ walk into Horley centre... More

Karen and Colin are lovely hosts. Nothing is too much trouble - it's so relaxed. The rooms are gorgeous - fresh, clean, delightful. The breakfast is excellent - perfect situation of 'help yourselves' if you are out of hours, but fabulous, too, if one is able to have the luxury of sitting and being waited upon!! Love the dog....all great!... More

Established as a guest house for some twenty-five years, it is regarded as one of the premier establishments in the vicinity of Gatwick Airport. ... more   less
