Don't expect anything when you book this place. Me and my partner stayed there for 3 nights and we would never again. The man who welcomed us was very straightforward, asked if we are staying for 3 nights and when we said "yes" he asked for our CC to take the payment. We could feel that he's only goal was... More

Gainsborough Lodge is one of several properties, bed and breakfast, along Massetts Road in Horley. The town borders Gatwick Airport on the north, and the airport is easily accessible by train (three minutes), car (six minutes) or regional bus (ten minutes). Our booking at the property was by default; our two preferred properties were sold out for our dates. Gainsborough,... More

I stayed here for three nights. When I first arrived, I was told I had to pay extra for car parking because I had booked through a company. Car parking for guests should be free. I have stayed in many b&b's and guests never have to pay extra for parking, this was an extra £4 a night, so thinking I... More

I was supposed to stay with my sister two nights in this hotel, but after the first one we decided to leave immediately even without getting our reimbursement back. When we entered in the room the bed's sheets had some red spots, the bathroom was dirty on the floor and in the shower/bath we found some dead spiders! When I... More

We stayed one night, arrived late as flight delayed. The key was on the counter for us. Room was small but bed was comfy. Bathroom looked newly renovated and very clean. It did what we wanted - provided a bed vey near Gatwick airport. We didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that! Good value, no pretensions, a comfortable night's... More

The stomping could be heard quite clearly from the upper floor, otherwise the neighborhood was peaceful and we could leave the window opened for the night. We ordered the English breakfast for extra 5£, and the size of it was quite pathetic. Otherwise breakfast with cereals and some toast was included in the room rate. They arrange transportation to the... More

Our room was very bare and quite cold considering it was June time. The shower was barely a dribble. Breakfast is ok but small rations. There are so many guest houses on the same road, I am sure you will get better quality for your money elsewhere.
