“Great Service Irish Style”
Reviewed March 15, 2009

I stayed here for a few days while taking exams at Gatwick. Outstanding welcome from the owners and great service. Convenient location if working or travelling from Gatwick Airport. Free WiFi exemplifies the owners' attitude to catering for their customer's needs without 'cashing' in like many competitors.

Stayed March 2009, traveled on business

We have stayed at the Gable End twice. The first time was a planned visit and the second time we stayed because of flight problems. Mary and Joseph (the owners) are fantastic people! They provide transportation to and from the airport, as well as a fantastic breakfast in the morning. The rooms are very comfortable. There is also a great pub within walking distance (it is either the third or fourth oldest pub in the UK!), Ye Old Six Bells. A fantastic place to stay!

One short night on the way from Poland to Senegal and one of the most pleasant experiences in my life! I picked the Gable End Guest House by chance and it turned out I'm a really lucky girl!

The moment I entered the House I felt home. The inside reminds rooms taken from the 19th century novels. Really nostalgic. Everything so sweet and clean that it makes you love it.

The lady at the reception desk becomes your close friend in no time at all. Very cheerful and ready to help you with everything and anything, very tactful at the same time.

Now , bedrooms...!!!! I wish I had slept there for another one hundred years or so. Some special atmosphere lets you have a really calm sleep.

In the morning.....what a delicious breakfast!!! It was so tasty (despite the general opinion about English food) (sorry, Mary!) I couldn't stop eating! Plethora of food!

Mary, Joseph (the owners) and the staff? You just must meet them!!! It is a great pleasure to have a friendly chat with people who know what real hospitality is.

  • Liked — friendly atmosphere, perfect cleanness, perfect food, nice decoration
  • Disliked — no lift

Because of my job I stay in the Gable end guest house for a few nights every month. I just would not go anywhere else. The property itself is absolutely beautiful, the rooms (and I have been in quite a few of them by now ) are the one better than the other, Clean, well presented and comfortable. You instantly feel at home. But the biggest asset of the guest house as I find it are the people that own it. Mary and Joseph make you feel welcome the moment you step in and are more than helpful with anything you need. To me they are the friends and family I don't have in the UK. Their warm welcome, their helpful ways the beautiful breakfast, the lifts to the airport their personal interest to your wellbeing is what makes your stay so special. I would recomend this guest house even with my eyes closed as we say in Greece.

Very friendly couple, such a warm and inviting welcome on a bitter cold night. As i arrived in my taxi i was warmly invited inside and advised that i should have just called them and they would have picked me up!! I was staying one night before flying out in the morning. Very warm and inviting house. Feels very homely. Rooms very warm and bed very comfy just what i needed before the long day traveling. Very stress free tasty breakfast followed by a very short and stress free drive to the airport. Would highly recomend and will definately be visiting again the next time i fly out of Gatwick!.
