Wonderful place to stay, room lovely and wonderful breakfast. Just the thing to set us up for our flight to Orlando. Karen made us feel very welcome and the family pets are just great. Stay here before your flight, you won't regret it.

Extract from our email on returning home to NZ:
Hi Karen and Colin.
We just wanted to say a big thank you for making us feel so welcome at Vulcan Lodge.
We really did enjoy our stay in Horley with you (despite the Beautiful British Weather!), it was so relaxing.
And you are so perfectly located for all of the facilities in and around Horley – a walk to the shops, cafes, pubs and mainline station.
Next time we come to England we will book with you and will definitely recommend you to our friends who will be coming to UK next July 2012.
We also miss being around Oscar and Sake, they really are lovely dogs and great company.
Take care and we hope to see you again.
Love Sue and Terry

..for a pre flight stay. Great value good sized room, large and comfy bed (though sheets smaller than bed!), charming hosts and good breakfast. The location of this place is very good, well set back from a busy road makes it very quiet.

My group of 6 were heading to a rugby match at Twickenham and rather than stay in the hustle and bustle of London, we decided that Horley would be nicer. I had stayed at the Vulcan Lodge before so the choice was easy.

Karen remembered us from our last visit. She remembered that my partner doesn't like dogs and has hidden hers away for our arrival. She also remembered that on our last visit (4 years earlier) my partner had a broken leg and she enquired about her well being, which was a nice touch.

The rooms were ready and Karen let us know the combination for the front door and checked to see if we needed a taxi to the airport for departure.

The premises aren't a luxury hotel, but the rooms were spotless and comfy. Breakfast was good and hot and at the time we asked for it.

Horley village is five minutes walk and there are a couple of pubs. 2 indian restaurants, a chinese and a tapas bar. Horley train station is 10 mins walk with good connections onwards to Londinium.

I've stayed there before and I'll stay again!

I read the reviews on here and got on the phone to book an overnight stay for 7th May before our next day flight at Gatwick. The owner Karen was really friendly on the phone and couldn't have been more helpful if she'd tried.

We arrived around the time we'd arranged and as we got out of the car, Karen, her hubby and lovely two border collie dogs were there outside the door to greet us. After been shown to our room and given fresh milk they suggested a few places to eat and confirmed that they had booked our taxi to the airport for us.

The room was spacious, the bed was comfy and the en suite adequate for our needs plus there was a tv with freeview and a tray with an assortment of teas,coffees and biscuits, there was also a pc in the hallway for customers to use which was free We had a cooked breakfast the next morning which was delicious and were waved good bye when we left.

We left our car there, didnt have to leave the keys and knew it would be well looked after.

Best customer service and hospitality we have received for a long long time and the Vulcan Lodge will always be our first choice now when flying from Gatwick.

What a gem of a place and owner and only 5 mins drive to the airport.

We first stayed at Vulcan Lodge last year on our trip to England and there was no question about where to stay this time around. Karen is a fabulous proprietor and very welcoming and attentive to your needs without being nosy.
She made us feel right at home-which it was for 5 days. Even Sake and Oscar came out to greet our son, who had made friends with them last year.
The cooked breakfast was well worth the price and my husband still raves about the portobello mushrooms!!
The location is perfect,within walking distance of high street Horley and the train station if you want to nip into London for a day.
We would definitely stay at Vulcan Lodge again when back in Surrey.
