“Perfect start to holiday!”
Reviewed 11 October 2012

This quaint little hotel is located ten minutes from Gatwick yet tucked away in a lovely rural location. Our room was clean and cosy and we saw deer in the gardens upon arrival which was lovely! There is no restaurant so we ate in a nearby pub but you can also dine at their sister hotel and get a discount off your food bill.

The price included a return taxi to the aiport (which were both extremely prompt!) and parking of our car for eight nights at the hotel. What a lovely hassle free way to start your holiday, I can't recommend this place enough and will defo use again!

This hotel is just minutes form Gatwick Airport, the hotel is set in a very rural area, we saw lots of wild life on our brief overnight stay,there is a small carpark opposite the hotel,keys are left in reception and on your return most cars are moved to their sister hotel, The hotel is spotless and breakfast plentiful, your pickup by Taxi is prompt, (payment was made directly to the taxi driver).
Evening meal is not available at this hotel, there is a local pub but they finish orders at 9pm!! June summer a little early I thought!! But overall good value, and a good stay, would defo use again.

This hotel in a quiet country lane is an ideal base from which to fly from Gatwick. The room was large and looked out over a substantial garden.\r\n\r\nGuests should be aware that breakfast at the weekends is a simple self-service buffet consisting of juice, cereals and toast, but this was perfectly adequate for our needs. A full cooked breakfast is available on weekdays.

We stayed here prior to flying to Canada, we got very pleasant welcome on arrival and given very large room behind reception.
Arrange transfers for next morning and our return, and it all went very smoothly.
Did not take breakfast so cannot comment, but if you are flying from Gatwick this is the place to stay

My wife and I stayed there for 1 night before our flight 14 Sept What a lovely welcome we had from the receptionist she even came out to the middle of the road as we could not find the place how kind. Excellent room clean comfortable bed. Breakfast was buffet which was great as we do not have full english. I would stay there again when flying from gatwick.

Convenient, efficient, and friendly.
A lovely country house, such a nice change from an impersonal hotel.
Bed a little 'lumpy' but despite this we had a good, quiet nights sleep ready for our early flight from Gatwick.
The taxi service to and from the airport is excellent and so much better than waiting for a crowded bus. Our car was waiting at the sister hotel on our return - no hassle at all, so a calm relaxed end to our holiday preparing us for our onward journey.
This represents excellent value for money, even though we left too early to sample the breakfast. I believe there was food available before 7 am if we had wanted it.
We certainly recommend Waterhall Country House and will book again next year. Thank you.

I found the place easy enough, it's a lovely property with a dining conservatory overlooking a huge garden - it's hard to believe you are adjacent to London's second airport!
My en-suite room was adequate and comfortable. There was a freeview television, free wi-fi access and tea / coffee making facilities. Breakfast was served 07:00 to 08:00 and this was excellent (full english for Moi thank you very much) and it also suited my schedule.
My airport transfers were included in the price, you park-up opposite the Hotel and you are free to use your car until you depart for the airport, as it is not placed in storage until you have departed for the airport. This in handy if you wish to go out to dine etc. On return I called the taxi company and they were there within 5 minutes.
All in all I was quite impressed and could certainly recommend, I will return when I next fly out of Gatwick.
