“Tonia & Darren - Excellent as always!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

We have stayed five times now at Vulcan Lodge and look forward to it almost as much as our holiday! Karen and Colin are perfect hosts who make us feel very welcome every time we stay. The rooms are lovely, very clean, comfortable and quiet. Only a five minute taxi ride to Gatwick airport and local pubs are within walking distance. We are booked to stay again in September 2014. Thank you Karen and Colin!

Tonia & Darren what can I say, just like Auntie Susie and the 'plastic plant', it'll be visit number seven in September!!

Joking aside, thank you for such a glowing report, it's always a pleasure to flip the diary pages to see your names, and to look forward to that big hug on when your arrive.

Take care and see you in September with the kids!!

Perfect for anyone wishing to stay overnight before a morning flight from Gatwick.
Very welcoming owners, cosy and spotless accommodation ad a very wide range to choose from for breakfast. Will most certainly return.

Greetings Steve
Many thanks for taking the time to write a wee message on TA, and such a fab one at that. It's always nice to know that we manage to tick the correct boxes, and look forward to welcoming you and Nina the next time you find yourselves flying in/out of LGW.

Kind regards

This is my second time at the Vulcan Lodge and it was perfect again, Karen and Colin made my stay just wonderful. I love the rooms and the location. Karen helps whenever she can, she is always there for you. The breakfast is all you are looking for. The Lodge is close to the airport, the train station (35 minutes to Victoria) and to the local pubs. It is quiet although so close to the airport. Everything is clean and spotless. For me it was like seeing friends again.
Hope to be back soon. Thank you for everything

Kirsten, thank you so very much for your glowing report, and for the flowers, chocolates, and the soap is fab!!

I'll keep a look out for Eileen in the town, and if I do bump into her, perhaps she'll have a tea/coffee with me.

Take care and look forward to seeing you again soon.

1) Great location - Close to shops, restaurants, pubs, the train station and a 5 minute taxi ride to Gatwick Airport. Yet it is quiet in the rooms and easy to sleep.
2) Exceptionally friendly welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely hosts.
3) Food - Breakfast was of a high standard and plentiful.
4) Comfort - The rooms are very clean and in good order. A good sized TV, kettle and nice touches of bottled water, tea, coffee and biscuits available in the rooms. Free wifi is available throughout the lodge, and is fast & secure.

Thank you for your most complementary review of Vulcan Lodge.

We always enjoy hosting our Antipodean guests, with their sunny outlook on life. We were just sorry that you have had to endure a storm-embattled England over the first part of your visit. However, the weather is on the mend and looks much improved for the rest of your stay.

We look forward to catching up with your latest adventures prior to your departure for Australia.

We stayed with Karen and Colin over Christmas, leaving our car. The place is extremely comfortable, warm and friendly, as are the hosts. Good eating nearby. While we were away the Great Floods came. Karen kept us fully in touch, even offering to move the car to higher ground if necessary, and giving it a run now and then. This was above the call of duty and much appreciated. We have stayed at several Gatwick B&Bs, and this is definitely the Best, most comfortable and best value too! Many thanks!

Hi Mike & Sandy

Thank you for your kind words regarding your stay at Vulcan Lodge. As for looking after your car, and keeping you up to date with the flood situation, it was a pleasure, and just thankful that we only suffered surface water in the back garden, sadly, there were some who were not so lucky!!

Enjoy Vietnam, and look forward to looking after you and the car again at some point this year.

Kind regards
Karen

Stayed one night at each end of three week holiday flying from Gatwick. Have stayed elsewhere in Horley before but the very high quality of this accommodation means that it will be our first choice in the future. On site parking at a reasonable rate, very comfortable rooms and good breakfast. As to detail, I agree with all the good things mentioned on other reviews. The exceptionally high standard of all the categories to rate means that it is good value for money and the location could not be better for easy access to the airport although Vulcan Lodge itself is in a quiet position and off the main road. Glad to finally have found somewhere that gives a comfortable and relaxing start/end to a holiday.
