“Wonderful B&B!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

I stayed one night at either end of my journey in December and January. Mary and Joseph were so friendly and helpful - they made me feel very welcome. The 2 rooms I stayed in were spacious, clean and very comfortable and the breakfast was brilliant. Just what I needed after a late arrival following a delayed flight into the early hours. There was a simple system for ensuring that I could get in at that time as well! I had a lovely meal at the Six Bells Inn, a 5 minute walk away. I'm delighted to have found this B&B following an internet search and will definitely be back next time I'm flying from Gatwick. Highly recommended!

I was traveling to Gatwick to sit CAA exams and Gable End was just what I needed.
Lovely welcome from Mary and Joseph, despite a booking error on my part. The room was really nice, warm, quiet and comfortable with a desk that help me with some last minute studying.
Breakfast was flexible and tasty. Overall fantastic value and in a very handy location with easy links to Gatwick and the surrounding area, with no traffic problems even at 9AM on a weekday.
I will be staying again next time I am in the area.
Many thanks guys!

Stayed the night before and on return from trip to Florida.
The warmest welcome ever from Mary, we felt like family nothing was too much trouble.
Pick up and drop offs at Gatwick went smoothly spot on time Joseph friendly and helpful.
Would highly recommend a stay at this wonderful friendly B&B, fantastic choice of breakfast service second to none.
Mary and Joseph know how to make every guest feel special looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Our upstairs room was quieter when other visitors are leaving for early morning flights.

We stayed at Gable End in October, before an extremely early flight the following morning.

Mary's welcome was warm and friendly, she made a fuss of the children, nothing was too much trouble.

Our room was very comfortable and clean. If I had to pick one criticism, it would be that it was quite cramped. We had a double bed and 2 singles squashed into one of the front rooms as the family room was booked out to a family staying longer than us. That said, it didn't spoil our stay, we were only in the room for a 8 hours!

We helped ourself to a fabulous continental spread at about 4.30am the next morning.

Once again, Mary's wonderful hospitatlity greeted us when she collected us from the airport on our return journey. She even helped us unload our suitcases and then ran indoors to get the children some biscuits. I almost can't wait to book another holiday from Gatwick so that we can return to Gable End.

If anyone asked me to find some negative to say about Gable End Guest House, I would have a huge problem. Since my now good friends (family) Mary and Joe started this venture, I was one of their first guests to be picked up at Gatwick way back in 2000. I was standing in the queue at the Information Desk when Joe approached me and asked if I was looking for a place to stay. From that day on I have been staying there at my second home (I live in Norway) with my second family, every single year. Sometimes I stay twice a year and I usually have a gang of Norwegians (between 6 to 28 guests at a time) with me. Never once have I ever heard a negative word said by anyone of my fellow Norwegians, nor have I heard any such negative comments from my family and friends in England who have stayed there at my recomendations.
This place is unique and it is run by people with hearts a big as the heavens above. I am due there in February, this time with 28 Norwegians who are bound for the Caribbean with me. Beleive me when I say that I am just as excited to see "my family" at Gable End as I am with seeing my folks in the Caribbean. Pity we only stay there one night each time. I also agree with every single positive comment on this site so I won't repeat it. I will however say this. Please Mary and Joe, don't you ever leave that place or I will not only lose a home, but a family as well!

Room Tip: Don't worry, you'll always be satisfied!

It was easy to ring and arrange a pick up from Gatwick airport (we had been given clear instrustions on how to find the freephone). Mary arrived promptly and really made us feel Like valued guests.
She phoned to book us a table in the local pub/restaurant (which i have also reviewed and is great) too, which is over-and-above service.
The rooms were well appointed and had everything we needed for an overnight stay. The breakfast was spot on the following morning.
We were driven back to the airport to get our plane and given a very friendly send off.
We will definately be using Gable End the next time we fly from Gatwick. Staying there is a good way to begin a holiday.

We spent one night at the Gable End Guest House. Mary picked us up promptly from the airport, and after we settled into our room she drove us to the small village where we had a look around. The guest house is clean and adequately appointed. The full breakfast was spot on. Joseph arrange for a taxi to drive us to Heathrow at a rate that was very competitive with the bus (for two). The hosts will recommend Six bells pub for your dinner. Make sure you get adequate directions or you will find yourselves walking down a dark lane in a graveyard. The difference here is the attitude and actions of mary and Joseph. They instantly become your best friends. You have a sense that they really love what they are doing, and you will too!
