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.

We stayed one night before boarding a plane at Gatwick. Free airport transfers both directions. 5 minute walk from Horley downtown. Comfortable room. Perfect location. Coffee and kettle in the room. Good towels and bedding and comfortable beds.

The most soulless hotel I've ever been in. Granted we only used it as a stopover before we boarded a plane at Gatwick but there was no pretence that they wanted to be of service or cared about their clients. We waited well over an hour for someone to appear, the rooms were small and drab, the breakfast indifferent. It... More

We were staying here for two nights as we travelled down from Gloucestershire and were going to a family wedding and needed to be near relatives we were meeting before the day. The man on Reception was not very talkative and seemed annoyed that we asked to see the room. The first room was not nice and the second one... More

Gainsborough Lodge provided us exactly what we needed, a cheap place to crash for the night before we high tailed it the next day on our holibobs from Gatwick. At 45 GBP per night, it suited our budget. The airport transfer was 5 GBP, which didn't break the bank either. The room was a lot nicer than I expected, if... More
