I booked this Guest House as we needed somewhere inexpensive and convenient to Gatwick Airport. Having read the trip advisor reviews I mistakenly thought The Lawn Guest House fitted the bill. I was terribly dissapointed. On the positive side, the guest house is conveniently located to Gatwick and minutes from a wide selection of restaurants. However the service provided falls...

Thank you for your comments, All our 'double beds' are standard 4x6 size so they are not glorified single beds as you call them. I should advise for you to confirm the size of the bed prior to booking the double room. We charge £7 for an airport transfer outside our free operating hours, and if this person knew we...

Let me start by saying that it was definitely cheaper to stay outside of London and pay to ride the train into London everyday. For tourists who will be visiting various sites/attractions in London, we were able to get 2 for 1 tickets for a lot of the attractions because we had a rail pass. Something to consider if you...

I would like to recommend this as a stop over when flying from Gatwick. Very clean and friendly. Convenient to get to the airport. The family will arrange transport and most of the time if you are staying on return they will pick you up. Would definately stay again for a stop over.

This was a good B & B for the night before an early flight out of Gatwick. Our host Quasim was very welcoming and helpful regarding restaurants nearby and arrangements for our early continental breakfast (including a variety of cereals, breads for toast, fruit, yogurt and coffee). Our ride to the airport at 6:45 arrived on time and cost 7...

We have stayed at the Lawn House a number of times when it was under the management of the previous owner who maintained a high standard in all areas of the B&B. My recent stay we did not experience those high standards. We had an early flight the next morning, therefore we were to have breakfast at 7 and a...

Thank you for taking the time in writing a review.

Please note that we start cooked breakfast at 7am and its served from 07.15, how could we possibly prepare...

This three-night stay was our first B&B stay outside the US. We were very pleased with the quality for the price, with the easy access from Gatwick Airport, and with the facilty and staff. The breakfasts were good as well. We highly recommend it.
