I stayed here for one night before an early morning flight in mid-August 2012. After reading some of the reviews on this site, I was a bit concerned, but in the end it was absolutely fine. I had booked a basic single room without en suite, which cost only £32 for the night. I called from Horley train station (around...

We have often stayed at this hotel when we have taken US holidays, the last time we stayed there the place was under new ownership. Avoid at all costs, the place has gone to the dogs!! On arrival we were kept waiting in reception for almost one hour as the owner was out collecting guests from Gatwick Airport. It was...

Like other travellers, we too stayed here in June 2012 because our flight came in at around midnight. We had to wait over half an hour to be let in. Eventually they opened the door and the room key and the instructions were left at the reception desk! The room was awful, dirty, smelly and tiny for us, we had...

I have given this a one star, only because I had to give it something. I arrived at 12:00 noon and they sat me in the reception and asked me to wait 10 minutes as my room was not quite ready yet. 1 and a half hours later they informed me it was ready. I went to my room only...

Horley is very close to Gatwick airport and is home of many B&Bs and lodges. I needed a place to stay for one night and was lured by the price, wireless and shuttle service (some reviews claimed it is free - it is not; it is 5 pounds each way for a 5 minute trip and costs slightly less than...

Very close to Gatwick Airport (less than 10min drive) and 10min walk to the train station to the center of London (45min approx.). Rooms are of a good size (bad mattress) and clean but a bit noisy. Staff is nice.

Further to my mum's review "Fly infestation" last week, I have uploaded some pictures of the fly infestation I woke up to in my room. These are only of the source - there were most flies around the room. After getting a partial refund I only ended up paying £17 for the single en suite room but I still think...

On arrival the place looks in serious need of a paint job. I commented to my boyfriend that from the road it looked a bit like the Adams Family house! The guy was helpful on reception. We had a room in the annex part and it was fine for noise levels. The room felt like it could be tarted up...
