“To good not to share”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

The holiday begins with a stay at Cumberland House. Superb up to date accommodation that has recently been tastefully refurbished. Carmel and Clive never fail to greet with a warm welcome and and will go the 'extra mile' to ensure that a stay at Cumberland house is never less than perfect. An excellent breakfast is a great start to any holiday and you won't be let down at CH.

Room Tip: ask on booking and I'm sure your needs will be accommodated.

We recently stayed for 5 days in June with Carmel & Clive, they are such warm and lovely people.

They were so very helpful to us, and the accommodations are exceptional.

Very clean, comfortable and the breakfasts were very good! Pictures are true and everthing
is as advertised.

Great location for getting to and from LONDON without too much fuss. We found our way around
very quickly and had a lovely time in this area. Great service, warm people, and a good nights sleep for a very reasonable price with pickup and delivery to the airport included
what more can you want?

Will be back...see you soon!

This time we arrived at Portsmouth by ferry from Bilbao, in northern Spain, too late to travel further north that day. Nor did we need an excuse to stay with Clive & Carmel again. We had not approached the House by car from the south before, but found that access was very straightforward.
They have continued the up-grading of the whole house & we stayed in the last room to be refurbished. Large Queen bed, comfortable upholstery, properly appointed bathroom. Facing away from the busier, main road the night was quiet. Next morning, Carmel's usual gargantuan breakfast was right up to the mark including, for the first time, both black- & white-puddings! Pigs, or what?
Car parking was, of course, on the premises & is included in the remarkably valued B& B rate of 75 €.
Can we find an excuse for another visit this year?
Clive was his usual entertaining self &, somehow, malt whisky always seems to feature in the conversation!

Room Tip: Try to avoid a room facing the Brighton Road.

Cumberland House Gatwick was recommended to us by a colleague for an overnight stop before we flew off to Canada and certainly came up trumps! From the time Carmel met us at the door of the B&B with a friendly face until the time we arrived back in Gatwick airport we were very well cared for.

On arrival the cup of tea and delicious muffins were especially welcoming and the restaurant recommendation and table booking much appreciated. The bedroom was immaculately clean with a lovely comfortable bed, a newly refurbished bathroom with powerful shower and all modern facilities.

We were luck enough to be leaving for the airport at a reasonable hour, so able to experience a traditional Cumberland House breakfast, big enough even for my partner who has a very healthy appetite! It was also nice to see local produce on the breakfast table.

As promised the complimentary drop-offs to and from the airport were both quick and efficient giving us peace of mind that we would be in plenty of time for our flight as I understand the traffic can be especially bad around the M25.

Overall a great experience so thank you Carmel and Clive for giving us a great start to our holiday, next time we will be looking out for flights from Gatwick just so we can visit you again!

Room Tip: Ours was great so I'm sure they are all good!

Stayed here the night before early morning flight. Hotel is lovely and clean, comfortable beds (and pillows) and nice bedding. Owners are lovely and made sure everything was ok. Free transfer to and from the airport was added bonus. I did not have breakfast as I left so early but was told that I could help myself to anything in the dining room before I left if I wanted to, which I though was going that extra bit, most places its tough if your leaving early! Another bonus is that your car is left in their own car park and not moved to some lock up else where, Best recommendation is I'm flying again in October and will be booking my overnight stay and car parking here again.

We found this fabulous B&B when looking for somewhere to stay overnight where we could leave the car on site. When we arrived Carmel very kindly made us a cup of tea, which after a long journey was very welcome - even though there were tea/coffee making facilities in the room.
Our room was on the ground floor, which was good as we were not likely to disturb anyone when leaving early in the morning. It was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and a beautifully up to date bathroom.
There is a great pub restaurant to get a meal or just drinks, just a very short stroll along the quiet road, so we had dinner there.
Carmel took us to the airport in the morning and collected us on our return. The only downside was that as we left so early we didn't get to take advantage of the fabulous full breakfast, but did enjoy the good selection left out for us.
On our return the car was all ready for us to drive away and we look forward to travelling from London Gatiwck again just so that we can stay at Cumberland House.

Me & my husband stayed here for nth time a couple of weeks ago prior to our holiday from Gatwick and as always, it was excellent.
Carmel had just baked the most delicious muffins which we ate with a cup of tea when we arrived. It's a lovely gesture as we get the chance to catch up.
Our room was what had been the original breakfast room and has very recently been refurbished. The bed is large and very comfortable, the shower is great and everything is so fresh & clean, it really is a pleasure to sleep there.
Breakfast is served promptly at the time we request it and it's fabulous, really nice ingredients, freshly cooked and really sets us up until lunch onboard our flight.
Clive dropped us off at the airport in the new courtesy car, which is very spacious and comfortable.
We left our car with them for the duration of our holiday and Clive was very prompt collecting us on our return.
We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when flying from Gatwick and I can't recommend Cumberland House enough.
Thanks Clive & Carmel for another warm welcome and lovely stay.
