Castle Lodge
Ranked #12 of 30 Horley B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 28, 2010

To be honest we picked the Castle Lodge because it met some very practical needs. My wife and I were traveling out of Gatwick early the next morning with our 11 and 13 year-old kids and we did not have a car and needed the most economical solution to stay the night and get to the airport with 4 people. We also needed a way to get from London to our lodging. Paul was so helpful via email ahead of time to give us advice about how to travel out of the city to Gatwick and call from the bus stop. He picked us up about 5 minutes after we called from the automatic phone at the bus stop. Since we were a family with kids he recommended walking to the Ye Olde Six Bells pub for dinner and we had a great meal and even better desserts. We had an early departure so the self-serve breakfast in the dining room was terrific for a quick meal and then Paul was ready to take us to the airport right on time. The room was spacious and pleasant for a family of 4 on a very quiet street, although I think that most streets in Horley are quiet. The wireless internet was not functioning when we were there, but I am sure it is up and running now. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else when traveling through Gatwick.

Stayed for one night and parked for 10. Nice, clean little guest house. Continental breakfast available at 3.00 in the morning - you just help yourself. Taxi booked to airport included in price - very punctual and friendly - dropped right off at arrivals. Lovely large room at top of house. 5-minute walk to shops and restaurants (and Chinese and chip shops). We brought a takeaway and ate it on the lovely large patio in the guest house back garden. Bathroom spotless. Phone call on return prompted the owner to be with us at airport extremely quickly. Car ready and we jumped straight in and home (after horrendous traffic jam on M25 - welcome back to England!). All-in-all extremely good value.

The Castle Lodge guest house is a great location for Gatwick airport with train access to London and thus wherever you may choose to travel in England. A very clean, spacious, and quiet room. The owner carried our bags up and down the stairs for us. Breakfast was not a hot one but was quite adequate. We were pleased with it. It is a short walk to several interesting restaurants and pubs. The owner himself gave us a lift to the airport and completely accommodated our schedule.

Stayed here for 1 night and it was good. The rooms were very clean and lots of space even though we didnt need any space as we arrived so late we just needed a bed for the night. Good clean bathroom .Breakfast was fine in the morning. And the couple who run the place seen very nice as well and they gave us a lift to the airport in the morning. Only thing i would say is if you get the taxi driver from the airport to Castle lodge that we got . Get ready to hear his thoughts on everything from Airports to the goverment. .

Judy and Paul were very helpful as to getting to London. She even drove us to the train station! The room is large, fully appointed and clean. WE arrived late from Amsterdam and they had given us directions to call cab. Had room key all ready for us in the hallway. Breakfast room was lovely and had plenty of choices for a continental.
A great choice for value if you dont want to stay in London and/or are coming in or out of Gatwick. Getting to London is easy and the price is a fraction of a London accommodation.
