Lovely property. I had room 3 overlooking the front which had a king-size bed with no footboard, perfect for the taller gentleman! Spacious room and large bathroom too, all clean, tidy and good quality. Wifi was available though I didn't make use of it. Breakfast was served in the conservatory which offered a great countryside view. David and Julia were most welcoming hosts. Everything just perfect. Highly recommended and I would definitely stay at Trumbles if I was flying out of Gatwick. No aircraft noise at all despite their proximity to the airport.

We have always stayed in airport hotels before, but got fed up with their high prices, appalling food and general contempt for the traveller. We found Trumbles following a newspaper review and now wonder why we have never done this before. Our stay was the perfect way to start a holiday. Our room was huge, spotlessly clean, fabulous bed, beautiful en suite. The bathroom (shower AND bath, hooray) was sparkling, the toiletries full and plentiful. We felt as if we were the first people to have stayed there, and that's what you always want wherever you stay. The breakfast was lovely - great scrambled egg NOT microwaved (thank heavens), good coffee and very good quality bacon and sausage. This is an absolutely first class B&B, tremendous value for money with impeccable service. If you're flying from Gatwick this is the only place to stay.

Room Tip: We had room 1, at the back and overlooking the garden. There is also a ground floor bedroom for anyo...

Charming and well appointed Inn run by David and Julienne. Clean, very attentive hosts to one's overnight needs, lovely gardens and rural gem in a major city location. The rooms were spacious, the linens spotless,well washed and crisp. The mattress top line and plenty of pillows. The en suite bathroom was well stocked, the water hot and brisk. The decor was antique, the room overlooked a field of wheat with the gardens below. David suggested several restaurants nearby and they were fantastic - so trust his judgement. Breakfast was spent in the garden conservatory bright with sunlight - either a well stock international breakfast or hot breakfast of eggs, meats, and a variety of crusty breads served on clean linens. As Americans, we were looking for a spot close to London to view the historical sites - David and Julienne directed us to the train in Horley and in 40 minutes we were touring Westminster cathedral, the White Tower, etc. Meanwhile, we took a side trip to Dover and Canterbury which was within an hour. Overall a delightful place, well appointed and well established - and minimal traffic conditions. I would recommend to friends

Room Tip: Corner en-suite room spacious with windows on two sides.

We stayed for one night and were made to feel very welcome. My husband has mobility issues and David could not have been more helpful. We arrived at the airport stress free courtesy of David and were picked up very swiftly on our return. We would definitely stay here again.

At the airport we normally go for ease and go in hotel on site but this time the price was, well to be frank -STUPID! Look I only want to sleep in a room not buy the hotel! This lead me to check out the B & B's near Gatwick and found a little gem in 'Trumbles'.

Here's what great, you actually go to bus stop 9 and David picks you up in the Trumbles Mini Bus, here's for me were personal service count's. David was great and gave us lots of local info and on getting back to the B & B he lugged our bags up to what was a really nice homely room with a great bathroom, in so many ways better than the hotel experience...

Julia made us some food and we were able to use the guest lounge which was brilliant as we had lots of work to do - nothing was to much trouble for David and Julia and as you would imagine breakfast was even better than the hotel...

So next time you are at Gatwick airport think B & B, think David and Julia, think Trumbles and you won't be disappointed...

This was, I think, our third stay at Trumbles. They are both friendly and efficient. Strongly recommend. Nice breakfast and all transport was on time. We'll certainly be using them again in the future.

This was our first time at Trumbles and we found it very comfortable. We stayed for one night before our flight from Gatwick and we left our car here. We were greeted by David, who was a great host, but we never met his wife. The room was very nice and spacious, as was the bathroom. The only disappointment we had, was not being offered a cooked breakfast because it was a weekend, however a cold breakfast of cereals etc, was left out for us to help ourselves to. David drove us to the airport, and collected us when we returned. Our car was kept onsite, which was a bonus and I felt happy to leave it. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. Thank you.

Room Tip: Room 1 was nice.
