Stayed at the Gainsborough Lodge in readiness for an early Gatwick flight. Rooms are small and basic but clean and certainly good value for the price. Parking is available within the hotel. It's a 5-10 minute walk at most into Horley which is a pretty little town. We found a great pub with a two meals for £8 menu and...

I arrived kowing or at least thinking my cardhad already been charged fir the trip. Turns out it had not. Yet I had received information that it was charged. I will have to check my statement when I get home. Anyway I arrived way too early and had to wait for the first available room. I was happy they gave...

The room was small, but comfortable. It was advertised that we'd have a bath, we had a shower. There only included a small towel, so it was hard to dry your self.. the shower was quite dirty. The only thing I can really say is it done the job, we slept for a few hours before catching a flight. They...

PROs + close to Gatwick Airport (within walking distance) + comfortable but slightly small beds CONs - £40 per night is very expensive for such a low quality old house that has been re-purposed into a hotel - rude and unprofessional Eastern European staff - staff smokes like a chimney and gives out the constant scent of cancer - room...

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...

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...

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...

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...
