“A great little find”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Excellent hotel, everything we wanted for a overnight stay prior to a early morning flight out of Gatwick.
Very close to the airport, very good value for money, and especially with the car parking included - excellent.We would definitely use it again, and be recommending it.
Upon arrival we wer given instuctions about departure and arrival back to get our car and the keys - all very straight forward, as we were leaving early before brekkie - receptionist was a pleasant and friendly lady which was nice to arrive to, room was great, a little dated, with a very modern recently done walk in wet room shower - we were in No 8. Room and hotel spotlessley clean, we had great night sleep, did not hear planes at all - but was so tired.
All in all went very smoothly and couldnt have asked for anything better for the price - taxi that had been booked, arrived right on time as promised. Flew out on hols. When we returned to collect car all very straight forward once again, and the owners were there this time, invited us in for a cuppa which was most welcoming after a 10 hour flight, and asked if we would like brekkie, which we declined, but we thought was a lovely touch.

Cant remember the lovely mans name but wife was Anne, and they were both charming, had a lovely chat with them about the hotel, and the decor, which is the only thing if I were to be critical, I would so lovee to get my hands on this place and resign/decorate it for them, doing Interior design, I think about it everywhere we go. Spoke to the lovely owners, and Anne seemed very intereted on what I thought which was just lovely. This lovely couple, eat sleep and breathe this hotel, with endless and tireless efforts, they so genuinely want people to enjoy their stay there, to have a nice time and go away with nice memories. They trulyseem to genuinely care about the hotel and the people that stay, which is lovely in its self. We will defiantely be returning to this hotel when we fly again

Thanks again to all of you at Waterhall !

PS. Did you have a look at the stag head wallpaper ??? Looking forward to see the rooms soon x

Thank you so much for your review. We also enjoyed chatting to you to and loved your ideas. I did look at stag wallpaper and would like to incorporate it into the décor somewhere. The rooms are great, can’t wait to show them off……….

We stayed for one night on Saturday as we had an early flight from Gatwick. Check in was great and everything was explained in a friendly way. We ordered some food and it was delish ( Does not come from a Microwave ). My partner and I stayed in room 8 which was cosy and had a great bathroom.
Also look for Polly such a friendly member of the team. Will deffo stay again.

Stayed overnight in room no1. Hotel was clean and staff/owners very friendly. Hotel was quite a homely place. My wife had mislaid her phone we were allowed to use the hotels phone at no extra charge. Airplane noise was virtually non-existent
One minor niggle was they had run out of tomatoes for breakfast, one more serious one is that we could feel the mattress springs, which made for not a very good nights sleep. To be fair I would return.

Oh dear! That was my fault we had no tomatoes. I forgot to buy them when I went shopping. I promise to cook you a double portion if you come & see us again.
We are decorating room 1 at the moment & there will be a new bed in there when it is finished. I am mystified though as there weren’t any springs in the other one? We look forward to welcoming you again.

Found this place on the evening before we were due to fly. Arrived around 7ish and had dinner was was very good to be fair. Nice bottle of red wine. Very friendly and welcoming staff which made a business evening more jolly. Only saw this place in the dark so pictures look great of the garden. Room was clean tidy and functional. All. Good. Ask Georgina if she was pleased to have Elvis staying in the building!

Room Tip: Room 8 was good size and nice wet room shower area.

I think Elvis caused quite a stir with the staff & they thoroughly enjoyed your company. They were quite upset when he left the building!

We had a wonderful overnight stay at the Waterhall Country House before flying out from Gatwick the next morning.
Our room was luxurious and all the staff most friendly and helpful. It was a beautiful evening so we could enjoy the lovely grounds. We had a delicious evening meal before a very comfortable and restful night.
After an early breakfast the taxi arrived on time all arranged by the hotel and they looked after of our car whilst we were away. It was an excellent start to our holiday and we would thoroughly recommend the Waterhall Country House.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4 which was a beautiful and very large comfortable room over looking the garden.

My partner and I stayed here before and after a three week trip to Australia - returning last weekend. We chose WCH because it was convenient to Gatwick for the early flight and the car parking. We arrived to a very warm welcome, had a delicious meal and stayed in a very comfortable room (No.8). We found all the staff to be polite, very pleasant and eager to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
I had a fall while we were away and needed a stick to walk on our return and the receptionist offered to move us to the nearer room which was kind but not needed. We had No.8 again which once again was cosy and clean and we weren't disturbed by the planes. Don't you expect to hear planes near an airport?
We returned very tired in the early evening and although my partner had hoped to revisit the delights of the beef pie we just couldn't have done it justice so we fell into bed without an evening meal. We had the full breakfast which was very tasty and appreciated that we weren't rushed even though we were a little late leaving due to jet lag.
The whole experience was delightful and we hope to revisit this gem soon.

Room Tip: No. 8 ground floor convenient for restaurant. Great wet room
