Reviewed 31 May 2013

Very friendly helpful staff, clean rooms and a very warm welcome. They took us to the airport for 7.25 and ensured we had breakfast before we left. Will definately stay again when travelling out from gatwick as they also look after the car while you are away and pick you up from the airport upon your return! And it is only£6.00 more than the cost of the car parking. Brill! Must go to 6 bells for dinner, wonderful!

If you want a great place to stay before flying out of Gatwick choose Gable End. Comfortable warm rooms, with an excellent breakfast, which all added up to good value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We also left the car for a fortnight at a good rate, with Joseph taking us into the airport included. A taxi back was only £8 for 4 people!

Room Tip: Review based on the experience of three different en-suite rooms on the first floor.

We stayed here before and after our holiday. It is just 5 minutes from Gatwick airport with free transfers by Mary or Joseph who are just the most wonderful hosts. Parking - paying to leave our car at The Gables for just over a fortnight saved us a lot of money (OK, the limited space does mean someone will probably have to move it while you are away and you might find leaves on it when you get back ... but who cares about that). We stayed in room 5 a spacious room which is bright and airy. Breakfast was delivered piping hot and made fresh to order. This was our first flight from Gatwick as we are from Lancashire and i picked the Gable End because of the positive reviews i found on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. I would definately stay here again if travelling from Gatwick and I would not hesitate in recommending it to any one.
Mary emailed me before our trip to ask if we would be wanting to dine in the evening of our arrival and suggested a Thai restaurant in the village and also the six bells pub and restaurant. Mary offered to book a table for us which are both only a short walk from the Gable End.
the Six Bells really is as good as other reviewers have stated, almost every Trip Advisor review says the same things about The Gables, proof that the proprietors get it ‘right first time’ for just about everyone who stays there, a superb commendation. It takes a huge amount of time, energy, commitment, personality and love to create and run an establishment like this and when you meet Mary and Joseph you’ll soon realise why The Gables is as good as it gets.

We stayed in May on our way to, and back from, Portugal via Gatwick. Gable End is a super, super “I’d recommend it to anyone” Guest House and here’s why. 1. Hospitality - Here’s one example from many we could quote. Thanks to the M25 we arrived late, very irritable, hot and tired. Mary took one look at us and made us a pot of tea with biscuits. 2. Cleanliness - the whole place is absolutely spotless, bright and cheerful. 3. Comfort - no problems whatsoever sleeping here. 4. Location - about 10 minutes drive from Gatwick (and the M23). Mary and Joseph will do a free taxi run to and from the airport for guests as required (up until 9pm). 5. Parking - paying to leave our car at The Gables for just over a fortnight saved us a lot of money (OK, the limited space does mean someone will probably have to move it while you are away and you might find leaves on it when you get back ... but who cares about that). 6. Food – breakfast is as good as you’ll find anywhere and Mary and Joseph have a talent for ensuring that a good time is had by all, even first thing in the morning. For evenings, the nearby Six Bells really is as good as other reviewers have stated. 7. Other reviews on this site - almost every Trip Advisor review says the same things about The Gables, proof that the proprietors get it ‘right first time’ for just about everyone who stays there, a superb commendation.
It takes a huge amount of time, energy, commitment, personality and love to create and run an establishment like this and when you meet Mary and Joseph you’ll soon realise why The Gables is as good as it gets.

We last stayed with Mary & Joseph 7 years ago when we used to go long haul out of Gatwick.We live in Bristol & only 20 mins from the Airport and Because of the high cost involved,we decided to fly from Gatwick & we saved a lot of money, and you won't find a better friendlier place to stay than the Gable end. we went up the day before our flight so as to go for dinner at the 6 bells -- an old pub just a short walk away, Joseph will be happy to give you directions.we had a lovely room at the Gable end and as it happens it was the same room that we had on our last trip,.we also had bed & breakfast on return, the breakfast are excellent full english with more than you can eat options of cereals & toast etc, Mary & Joseph are great host's, we will go back again without hesitation. nothing is too much trouble for this charming couple. Mary we love you --- Joseph keep giving out the shorcut information -- i am a lot fitter now. Ray & val xx

I book the room for the day after a long overnight flight. If you like clinical, mainstream hotels this one isn't for you. But if you want character, value and excellent customer service stay here. We couldn't have been made more welcome. I would stay here again without hesitation. Thank you Mary and Joseph.

The first time I stayed with Mary & Joseph in 2004, I had such a great experience that I wanted to come back. I was in West Sussex just over a week ago, and flying out of Heathrow, so instead of staying near Heathrow, I stayed at Gable End, then took the express coach to Heathrow from Gatwick. That's how good this place is. Mary & Joseph make you feel like you're part of their family. The place is clean, the beds comfortable, and it is very peaceful and cheerful. There is wi-fi in the room. There's a lovely historic pub, Ye Olde Six Bells, just a five minute walk away for meals. The breakfast at Gable End is excellent. They have courtesy shuttle service to and from Gatwick Airport. On this trip, I misjudged the time of the next bus from Gatwick to Heathrow, and Joseph made sure I got to Gatwick Airport just in time. I highly recommend Mary & Joseph and Gable End!
