What a great little find, perfect place to stay before your flight. A very friendly accommodating place, with lovely food and staff. Our parking, Taxi to and from Gatwick was organised for us. Will definitely stay again, either before flying or for a lovely weekend.

We stayed here for 1 night before flying , we had room 2 which was very nice,looking out onto the garden where we saw the deers roaming around.
We had a evening meal which we both really enjoyed,we left early so didnt have time for breakfast.
We had a taxi pick us up for the airport which was £10 and when we landed back in gatwick we just had to give them a call to come and pick us up to take us back to hotel to collect our car,all very straight forward to which the hotel arranged.
Will be using the hotel again.
As it happened when we got back our car tyre had a slow puncture to which the hotel staff had made sure it was pumped ready for us.

Room Tip: It is no smoking hotel,so if you smoke ask for room 1 or 2 as they are right by front door, so easy...

We stayed here before going on holiday to Gatwick, and were very happy with the experience. We stayed in Room 1, and it was nicely furnished, although the bathroom could do with bringing up to the same standard - but not bad.

We only slept at the hotel, no meals or anything - room 1 is right by reception and you can hear everything, so maybe not for light sleepers (someone called reception at 3am, not the hotel's fault but woke me up immediately).

The parking, taxi pick up and drop off all worked very well indeed and we were pleased to not have any issues on our return.

I would definitely stay here again, it's good value compared to the airport hotels and took the stress out of parking and lugging bags around the morning we were flying.

Room Tip: Room 1 is nicely kitted out but may be a bit noisy for some as so close to reception.

We have stayed at Waterhall several times over the last few years (apologies to the hotel for not posting a review before!!). It's great to be able to drive down from South Wales and leave the car for a very reasonable price. Back from holiday we stayed one night in the hotel. Lovely meal on arrival and a cooked breakfast before setting off back home. The staff are always friendly and we would recommend Waterhall to anyone looking to leave their car whilst using Gatwick.

We stayed here the night before we travelled from Gatwick. Lovely evening meal - husband really enjoyed his steak and ale pie. Excellent apple crumble and custard. Bar prices cheaper than many pubs. Room was small but comfortable and in good order (they had accommodated us on the ground floor as our bags were heavy). Loads of hot water for morning shower. We left early and our taxi had been arranged without issue. Our car was parked across the road. On our return it had been moved so that it was ready to leave and we had a really nice tea and toast breakfast for a fiver. Booked through Holiday Extras and would certainly stay again.

Delightful small country hotel 10 mins by taxi from Gatwick. Home cooking, spacious rooms and huge gardens make a relaxing start to a break. Much nicer than a room in a 'big box' hotel nearer the airport. Staff very welcoming. You can leave your car there for a small daily fee.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the back garden

As a party of three we stopped over before flying; we booked two double rooms. It is a great location and a lovely building.

The evening food service was excellent, the food above average and in line with good restaurants.

Oddities abound and a few little issues to note, however these should not prevent you from booking:

1 - the walls in our room were paper thin and we could hear 'everything' our neighbours said.
2 - being offered the menu on arrival is a little odd, maybe leave a copy in the room,
3 - WiFi signal very week.
4 - car park is a little unruly, lines would be useful to define bays.

This is a guest house, very low key and quirky; aside from few issues above it will be our choice of destination each time we use Gatwick in the future.
