“Mary & Joseph are fab!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Booked this little gem ahead of an early flight from gatwick. Flew in to gatwick from Belfast and were picked up by Joseph at no charge, straight to hotel. Recommended a pub, 5 minute walk away. Rooms clean and spacious- decor is quaint with lots of patterns but adds to the character of the house. Got up early next morning and Mary made us breakfast - including full cooked for the gents- this was despite us leaving prior to 7:30am. We were driven to the airport at are elected time, again at no charge.

The owners are so friendly you feel like you are staying with family. The trinkets/ abundance of ornaments & Irish poems add to the character of this value for money & convenient gem. Would defo book again especially for flying in & out of Gatwick. :)

I travel on a very tight budget, and so this place was a bit of a splurge for me, but it turned out to be not only the best place I've ever stayed, but also completely affordable. Mary and John run a free pick up and drop off service to Gatwick Airport, and unlike any hostel I would have stayed in, linens and a truly excellent breakfast were included. The hose is clean and very cozy, the room cozy and comfortable but by no means cramped. In general, very quiet and the best night's sleep I've ever gotten at a hotel. I've also never met owners of a guest house so genuinely friendly and happy to meet their guests. I will certainly be staying here again the next time I'm laid over in Gatwick.

My husband and I have stayed here several times in the last 2 years both on our own and as a couple when we've been travelling to the Caribbean from Gatwick Airport. It was recommended by a friend and I think the fact that we've returned to Gable End tells you all you need to know. We will both be using Gable End in a few weeks time (but separately!)

Joe and Mary couldn't be more helpful. One big plus is being able to drop bags off at the airport the evening before and being picked up by Joe -the airport is only 5-10mins away. The cooked breakfast is wonderful and they provide help yourself cereal, fruit juice, yoghurt etc.

The rooms are always spotlessly clean with comfortable beds. I've never had a problem with the wi-fi.

As others have mentioned, The Six Bells pub is great but busy at the weekends. They have a split sitting on a Saturday night, last seating on the early is 1845, first on the later sitting is 2030.

I would heartily recommend Gable End.

As our flights out of Gatwick to Jamaica are in the morning, my husband and I stayed here twice before with great pleasure. Now that he has passed away, I returned last weekend to a single room. All the furnishings seem like new, great flat screen TV and all that is necessary for a very comfortable single room. The big Irish breakfast was as good as ever, with help yourself juice and cereal. Within ten minutes of your call, Joe picks you up at the airport and drops you on departure at either terminal - just a ten minute drive. Mary made me feel so welcome back again. You can also leave your car there if you are a UK resident going away. The Six Bells Pub was pretty good too, though very busy on a Sunday afternoon. Will definitely be back to Gable End.

I stayed at Gables End a couple of times. I called from Gatwick and got pick up from the airport in just few minutes. Mary and Joseph are very friendly and made me feel very welcome. The rooms were clean and very cosy. The breakfast was delicious. There was wifi connection as well. The best B&B I’ve ever stayed at by far.

There's not much we can add to all the great reviews on here but we just wanted to thank Mary & Joseph for a great stay. We arrived on Honeymoon and Mary could not have been more welcoming, friendly and helpful. We had dinner at the Six Bells pub which is a 5 minute walk away and it was very good value and a nice relaxing pub atmosphere to soak up - not the usual soulless hotel nosh!

The B&B was great, excellent breakfast and super and easy transfers to and from the airport.

Thanks again and we will definitely be staying next time we fly from Gatwick.
