It's in a nice location, average room since there is a dozen of lodges down Massetts rd all for around the same price. At 955 am we were told to vacate the room for check in at 10am, although we had been there 4 nights they still didn't hesitate to kick us out. We moved lodges after that.

When we first arrived, there was a note on the desk which said the guy had gone to do an airport run and would be back in 10 minutes, but it was actually about 20 minutes - bit annoying as we were very hungry and wanted to get food. When we got to our rooms ( a double and single)...

This is an absolutely awful B&B and would not recommend to anyone. It is filthy, smelly, the room was far too hot and could not be cooled down. The shower room was also awful. The man that was in charge was rude and obnoxious. When I booked this room with Laterooms there was nothing mentioned about paying for parking which...

The room was large with a double bed and two single ones , the room was clean the bedding unlike previous comments was perfectly clean to. The shower was very small...

This was a late booking and cheap so can't complain too much, although I was unhappy to see a bed that looked like it had been slept in as the duvet was crumpled and creased, need less to say I slept on top of the bed. If you are a larger person avoid the top floor as the toilet space...

This accommodation was close to Gatwick Airport where we were changing planes. They sent a detailed note on how to reach them for a pickup. We were leaving for an early flight but luckily someone was coming in on a shuttle so we got a ride to the airport with them. Shuttle cost can be added to room. We were...

Collected from Gatwick Airport as arranged with the Hotel car facility, shown smoothly from reception to the annex of the hotel. Twin bedded room, usual refreshments on a tray, and TV. I felt very happy to have found such a well run, quiet and professionally run hotel. I meant to review it some time ago, but life distracted me! But...

GBP39.00 doesn't buy much by way of accommodation. My room only had 3 single beds, No globe in lamp and a rather poor shower. Staff friendly enough. The breakfast was edible, it was a full English breakfast...but very minimal. I felt that everything was skimped but other low cost places I have stayed at near Gatwick not really any better....

Stayed at the Gainsborough Lodge for one night in July. I had a very early morning flight from Gatwick Airport the following day so needed somewhere to stay the night before that wasn't too far away, The Gainsborough was just the job for this, My single room with shower for £38 (including £4 parking) for one night was fairly reasonable...

This place is truly just one step away from being a dosshouse; smelly, noisy, scruffy and somewhat how I imagine a Seventies B&B catering for asylum seekers. I only stayed because it was late, I was tired and due to fly early the next morning. The bathroom was outrageously poor with cracked and dirty grout, ineptly repaired fixtures and fittings...
