My wife and I spent one evening at the hotel prior to flying home to Canada. The hotel is located within a five minute drive to Gatwick and offers a free shuttle. The Gainsborough is also located two blocks from the center of Horley, which was quaint and offered a number of dining options Our room was a little on... More

Just stayed one night before flying off from Gatwick. Tiny room, bare minimum provided for comforts. Everything was cheap, tatty and old including the decor. The place needed money spending on it. The room had a tiny flat screen tv. Very nice breakfast lady but fry-up a bit mean. But check out the photo of the sign on the back... More

The lodge is only about 5mins drive to Gatwick airport. Rooms are clean. Shower head was leaking pretty badly, water out of head was just enough to shower with. When checking in and organising to leave our car their for a week, the receptionist wanted our keys and said we leave the car at our own risk- I was a... More

Our room was spacious and very clean. Breakfast was good, self service for cereal and toast but you were served your cooked breakfast. Despite being fairly close to the airport we never heard any noise from the planes. The number 100 bus very close by and the Gainsboro is only a short walk from the town centre where there are...

We stayed here after returning from Amsterdam. It was around 22:30pm which a taxi from the hotel picked us up which was great. Staff were friendly however there was a sign stating no eating charge £50 in our room. I wasn't happy about this as where it was rather late and our flight had been delayed I couldn't wait to...

We stayed here after arriving back from our holiday. The room was clean and the beds were so comfy. There is a TV in the room and you have a little station to make a cup of tea. You get free transfer to the airport after a certain time of the day. The lady who greeted us was lovely and... More

This hotel came up as one of the best priced for an overnight stay before flying from Gatwick, so we gave it a go. The host seemed to do everything - transfers, booking in and out and breakfast, so he had to be well organised, but he seemed to manage. Our room downstairs was basic but clean. There was some...

Typical for the area this is a B&B primarily used by people flying in and out of Gatwick Airport which is barely a couple of miles up the road. It offers long stay parking so that you can leave your car there whilst away and collect it when you return from a holiday or business trip. Basic and cheaper than... More
