Reviewed October 17, 2012

After traveling all the way from Australia, this is an, 'exceptional accommodation,' with excellent hospitality and genuinely friendly owner / operators, who 'go the extra mile' to ensure clients. have a comfortable and memorable stay. Absolutely, 'NOTHING LIKE 'FAWLTY 'TOWERS', and there is no, 'MANUEL' waiters there either. Excellent 'tucker' too ! Definately staying there every visit to the UK and highly recommend it to EVERYONE !!!

Thank you for taking the trouble to write to Trip Advisor, Alexander.

We are so pleased that you have put your earlier experience of that other guest house behind you, and have found a 'Home' when 'Away.' Please remember us at Vulcan Lodge when you eventually get back to the heart of Australia's cattle country.

It was really entertaining having your company for three days. Hopefully, next time you will make arrangements to stay rather longer.

I have stopped here for several months now and I could not fault the rooms or Karen and Colin. They are so welcoming and friendly that it does feel like a home from home. The rooms are immaculate and Karen is so attentive to detail. The welcome you get when you enter is friendly but not intrusive and you even get a good welcome from the dogs Sake and Oscar. I would stop here again in a heartbeat and I would recommend it to all.

Richard, thank you for taking the trouble to write to Trip Advisor, and for making such nice comments. Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Actually, I have only just found out that there is such a facility.

It is always such a pleasure to have nice warm, gentle, and humorous personalities such as yours gracing our humble guest house. I do hope that your company will find you more work closer to your home in future, though.

As we have said, you are always welcome to stay if you are flying out of Gatwick. I am sure Colin would be happy to create another Pure Malt tasting session.

I have stayed here three times now and I always have a great experience. Karen and Colin
Cater to your every need. The food is great, the setting is comfortable, the location is a few minutes walk from the train station, and the water pressure is perfect! Love staying here every time I come.

Wonderful place to stay, room lovely and wonderful breakfast. Just the thing to set us up for our flight to Orlando. Karen made us feel very welcome and the family pets are just great. Stay here before your flight, you won't regret it.

Extract from our email on returning home to NZ:
Hi Karen and Colin.
We just wanted to say a big thank you for making us feel so welcome at Vulcan Lodge.
We really did enjoy our stay in Horley with you (despite the Beautiful British Weather!), it was so relaxing.
And you are so perfectly located for all of the facilities in and around Horley – a walk to the shops, cafes, pubs and mainline station.
Next time we come to England we will book with you and will definitely recommend you to our friends who will be coming to UK next July 2012.
We also miss being around Oscar and Sake, they really are lovely dogs and great company.
Take care and we hope to see you again.
Love Sue and Terry

..for a pre flight stay. Great value good sized room, large and comfy bed (though sheets smaller than bed!), charming hosts and good breakfast. The location of this place is very good, well set back from a busy road makes it very quiet.

My group of 6 were heading to a rugby match at Twickenham and rather than stay in the hustle and bustle of London, we decided that Horley would be nicer. I had stayed at the Vulcan Lodge before so the choice was easy.

Karen remembered us from our last visit. She remembered that my partner doesn't like dogs and has hidden hers away for our arrival. She also remembered that on our last visit (4 years earlier) my partner had a broken leg and she enquired about her well being, which was a nice touch.

The rooms were ready and Karen let us know the combination for the front door and checked to see if we needed a taxi to the airport for departure.

The premises aren't a luxury hotel, but the rooms were spotless and comfy. Breakfast was good and hot and at the time we asked for it.

Horley village is five minutes walk and there are a couple of pubs. 2 indian restaurants, a chinese and a tapas bar. Horley train station is 10 mins walk with good connections onwards to Londinium.

I've stayed there before and I'll stay again!
