This was a lovely way to end our month long Italian vacation with two nights at the Vulcan Lodge, before leaving for our home back in Canada via Gatwick. It's a 350 or so year old, quaint home beautifully restored and renovated and tastefully decorated throughout. Very comfortable rooms nicely attired in traditional English Laura Ashley fashion. Breakfast was wonderful...

I had a great stay at this property, and they offer an out of hours method of gaining entry after 10 pm. It was very quiet even though its a couple of miles from the airport; the B & B doesnt have a shuttle service but local taxis are good value. All my emails with the staff were very quickly...

Sadly I didn't get to spend an awful lot of time at Vulcan lodge because I was delayed arriving until nearly 11pm, and I had to leave early next morning for a 6am flight. But my hosts were excellent at arranging that I could get in ok, and even stayed up to say hello and see me to my room....

This is a superb guest house ideally situated near to Gatwick Airport. It is ideal for staying the night before a flight, and the owners, Karen and Colin, will look after your car for you whilst away by keeping it safely on the hotel's premises rather than having it removed off site.The main attraction is the warm welcome given to...

We have tried a number of guest houses or cheaper hotels (expensive ones too!) for stop overs pre early flights. Vulcan Lodge is up there with the best. The welcome from Karen (and a lovely dog!) was warm and friendly. The room was comfortable and spotless with nice touches including water filter, bottled water, tea/coffee etc. We left too early...

Karen and Colin were absolutely fabulous hosts during my 10 day stay at Vulcan Lodge! Their B&B was clean and very quiet and I really appreciated being in a non-smoking environment.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ideally situated for airport access, while within very easy walking distance (200 yards) of the town centre. The Lodge itself, is a charming period house that sits within one third of an acre of typically quaint English gardens, and gives the impression of being amidst the beautiful Surrey countryside. Established as a guest house for some twenty-five years, it is regarded as one of the premier establishments in the vicinity of Gatwick Airport. ... more   less
