Collected from Gatwick Airport as arranged with the Hotel car facility, shown smoothly from reception to the annex of the hotel. Twin bedded room, usual refreshments on a tray, and TV. I felt very happy to have found such a well run, quiet and professionally run hotel. I meant to review it some time ago, but life distracted me! But... More

GBP39.00 doesn't buy much by way of accommodation. My room only had 3 single beds, No globe in lamp and a rather poor shower. Staff friendly enough. The breakfast was edible, it was a full English breakfast...but very minimal. I felt that everything was skimped but other low cost places I have stayed at near Gatwick not really any better....

Stayed at the Gainsborough Lodge for one night in July. I had a very early morning flight from Gatwick Airport the following day so needed somewhere to stay the night before that wasn't too far away, The Gainsborough was just the job for this, My single room with shower for £38 (including £4 parking) for one night was fairly reasonable...

This place is truly just one step away from being a dosshouse; smelly, noisy, scruffy and somewhat how I imagine a Seventies B&B catering for asylum seekers. I only stayed because it was late, I was tired and due to fly early the next morning. The bathroom was outrageously poor with cracked and dirty grout, ineptly repaired fixtures and fittings... More

Don't be put off by bad reviews here. I am quite a fussy wotsit and I found it perfectly acceptable for an overnight stop at the airport. I arrived at 1am and was soon checked in and helped with my case. Excellent!! The room, whilst a little dated was clean, comfortable and quiet. Good dark curtains for sleep quality. Nice... More

I used to stay here regularly until around five years ago when I discovered another guest house up the road. I made the decision to make a return solo visit since The Gainsborough is much cheaper for single rooms. I'd always found it to be basic but acceptable so I'm glad I didn't read the negative reviews here. I can... More

I have stayed at Gainsborough Lodge twice in the last 2 months when in the area on business, on both occassions for just 1 night. The hotel is very close to Gatwick Airport, and so the cost is competitive. The rooms are clean, but basic. The breakfast is of a good standard, and the man who cooks and serves it... More

We booked this B&B from their website while we were waiting in Barcelona for our plane to London. We arrived and the hotel owner was out picking up quests from the airport. So we left our bag and proceeded to the train station to go into London for the evening. It is very convenient to both the airport and the... More

We stayed here for one night before our flight. The staff and Rasheed (I'm getting old, I'm nearly five!) were so welcoming and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the breakfast cooked to order and a taxi service is available. We were so well catered for that this will now be our hotel of choice if we should fly... More

I actually stayed at the Lodge for three nights at the end of a long UK holiday, and couldn't have wished for better accommodation. The room was clean, with spotless linen on a very comfortable bed. The full English breakfast was well cooked and served by a pleasant young man, in a clean, airy dining room. The lodge is also... More
