Reviewed 27 April 2010

It truly was an enjoyable stay with hosts that go beyond expectations. It was our first visit to London as a family of 5 with 3 teenagers. The location was perfect for us, as it was close to the airport, train stations and in a great neighborhood where you could easily find a good place to eat nearby. Our hosts, Carmel and Clive cook up an amazing english breakfast (including gluten free products), and the muffins were a big hit as well. Room was immaculately clean, with comfortable bedding and it was spacious enough for 5 people. They graciously offered rides to train/airport, assisted with getting gluten free products, arranged sight seeing, and really just gave us the most wonderful memories of London. We stayed for approx 5 nights and will book this place again on our next trip to London.

Excellent place in close proximity to Gatwick. Carmel is a friendly host and very helpful. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The pub around the corner "Ye Olde Six bells" is delicious and cozy.

Anybody visiting or staying over at Gatwick should without a shadow of doubt stay at this lovely homely hotel.
Carmel and Clive are the perfect hosts making you feel at home the minute you enter the door.
My wife and I had an early flight and Carmel presented us with the most sumptuous breakfast you could imagine. As it was before 7am we only expected perhaps a bowl of cereal and toast. We had the full (and I mean full) english breakfast.
Our transfer to the airport and our return pick up were 5 star service.
On our return we were again presented with the full english breakfast before retiring to a spotless bedroom for a few hours sleep before our drive home.
Whilst we were sleepingj Clive got our car up and running as the battery had gone flat whilst we were away. Thanks Clive.
Carmel and Clive are the most charming and friendly couple, doing a job the way it should be done. We would never even consider any other place. Thank you Carmel and Clive for making us feel so at home.

We arrived late on the Sunday afternoon, to receive a very warm welcom from Carmel who showed us to our rooms, I was travelling with my mother inlaw and carmel thought she was my wife and vice versa.
After being shown to our room, which was clean with very comfortable beds, tea and cofee making and plenty of toiletries, we where made a fresh pot of tea which was served in the breakfast room. That evening we had a terrific meal at Ye old Six Bells just down the road, great food and ambiance.
The next morning we where greated by Carmel with the offer of one of her English breakfasts, Wow, to die for. After breakfast clive sprang into action and drove us the short 5 minuite drive to gatwick airport pointing out the collection point and where to call from on our return. A bright and cheerful Clive was there to meet us within a very short period of time after calling to say we were ready. Always being addressed by your first name, these two great people should set the standard for all guest houses, we shall be staying again in September as well as many more time i am sure. Keep up the good work.

Needing an early start at Gatwick for a winter holiday, we chose the Cumberland to book in and leave the car for a week while we sunned ourselves in Egypt. Could not have chosen better, Carmel and Clive offer exactly the right level of service: efficient, comfortable, welcoming and utterly reliable. What I particularly liked was instant communication, you always get a quick response and you know that everything is being taken care of.
Returning at 11 pm in the sleet of a cold February morning, Clive's prompt arrival at the pick-up (less than 5 minutes) completed the excellent service.
Thanks very much to both of you.

We had a disrupted flight...easyjet cancelled our flight and so we found Carmel and Clive by accident so it was not a planned stay. But...every cloud has a silver lining and Carmel and Clive was our lining..I would highly recommend this wonderful place.

We have stayed with Carmel and Clive quite a few times now and what a pleasure it has been from the minute we are picked up until the time we are taken back to the airport nothing is too much trouble we would not want to stay anywhere else from the warm and friendly welcome to the cosy quiet bedrooms and the wonderfull breakfast we cant praise it enough we will be staying in feb / march my husband is disabled and we are both vegetarians and we have no problems at all so if you are looking for good accomodation warm and friendly hosts who make sure you have a good nights sleep followed by a wonderfull breakfast and transported to and from the airport then this is the place to be. Do not think twice book it you will not be disapointed
