“Stress free start to our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

We used Gable End for the night before our Gatwick flight and to leave our car for the eight days we were away. It was a stress free start to our holiday.. By staying in a guest house we had a delicious breakfast included in the price plus a free transfer to the airport. We arrived back late in the evening so got a taxi from the airport and our car keys were waiting in the safe. If we fly from Gatwick again we will definitely use Gable End. Mary and Joe were very friendly and the room and guest house very comfortable.

Room Tip: This is located near a fairly busy road so if thats a problem ask for a room nearer the back. We wer...

I stayed here prior to a trip to Madeira and thus is one of the best Guest House I have frequented. A seasoned traveller, I was amazed at the all round quality. Everything was first class and thus us better than some if the top hotels I have stayed in. Nothing was too much trouble. Excellent service and delightful hosts. I was due to return again recently and unfortunately had to cancel due to illness. I will be back , its the best in the area by a mile.
Thank you Joe and Mary ,truly lovely hosts

Room Tip: It will make no difference. All first class

Thank you so much Joseph and Mary for a wonderful last night in England. Since we have been there several times before we knew we would not be disappointed in our stay. Joseph kindly picked us up from the car hire company, and again in the morning took us to the terminal at Gatwick without charge. We all had a great sleep in comfortable, perfectly clean and cosy rooms, just as we remembered from our last UK visit. finished off by a delicious breakfast and a ride to the airport - what more could anyone wish for.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

We booked a one night stay prior to a flight from Gatwick.
The warmest of welcomes, given by the nicest of people. The room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and the bathroom was bright and also very clean. Breakfast was a real treat - especially the bacon - good thick rashers and not the least bit salty. Just how we like it.

Mary also gave us a voucher for 20% off food at our favourite gastro-pub in the area (Ye Olde Six Bells) which we had booked in advance. Good job we did because even on a Monday evening they were turning people away!!!

Mary took us to the airport the next day - and even kissed us goodbye - made us feel like part of the family.

Mary - if you read this - we hope you enjoy your trip to the Holy Land. And many thanks to both you and Joseph for a great start to our holiday.

Would we recommend this Guest House? - most certainly.
Would we stay here again? - of course we would.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor twin room - so no lugging cases upstairs. But if you have an overnight bag yo...

Have stayed here 4 times over the years. Mary picks you up promptly from the airport or train on arrival and will get you back there on time when you depart. Rooms are cheerful, some smaller than others, some with bigger windows, but all nice. Very good restaurant within walking distance and not that far to the village. Don't know much to see in Horley but a nice dinner and stroll became a tradition for us our last night before flying home. Reasonable rates and you feel like family. On two occasions Mary has taken time from her busy day to help with special errands for us.

Rather than stay at an airport hotel,I checked Trip Advisor for guest houses near to Gatwick Airport,and found wonderful reviews for Gable End,and rightly so.We were greeted by Joseph,and we're fed a good hearty breakfast the following morning.Only downside?Didnt get to meet Mary,as she was away at the time.Hopefully next time.
