Historical Traveler Reviews Cumberland House Gatwick Horley
Really enjoyed our stay the night before our honeymoon and the night of our return from egypt.
The rooms are very comfortable with tea and coffee facilities and the best shower I've used in a very long time!
Lovely english breakfast in the morning.
Will certainly stay again.
Great Hosts! Wonderful Accomodation.
Stayed at the Cumberland House on June 10th, for one night. Carmel was a sweetheart. She collected us from the airport and made two trips due to the six people in our party. All the rooms were well appointed and each had a fan to help cool the air. Just happened that we came on a 30 degreee day but still found the rooms comfortable with windows that opened. We really enjoyed the wonderful accomodations and superb breakfast. Clive met us in the morning and returned us to the airport with plenty of time to spare. Carmel gave us great direction for a short walk to the downtown to poke around in the morning. As others have said Six Belles is an interesting pub just a 2 minute walk away. It has lots of history within it's walls. * Just a note... we wanted to run a tab for the 6 of us for dinner and drinks and that meant we had to stay inside the pub. They have a very nice outdoor patio but you need to pay as you go out there, I believe. Food was good and pints were right. The old church yard next door was interesting as well. Check it out if you need a little stroll after dinner.
All in all... I would highly recommend the Cumberland House for overnight stays as well as longer ones. It is central to the area around the Gatwick airport and only a 30 minute express train ride into Victoria Staton in London. Cheers!
Clean,Comfortable,Welcoming and Great Location
This was our first stay at Cumberland House but certainly not our last. The first good thing of note was the property was easy to find with clear easy to follow directions not the usual panic or squabble about whos fault it was because we were lost!. Next the welcome from Carmel and Clive was warm and genuine and it just kept getting better when we were led to an excellent, clean room with everything the weary traveller needs. Next morning we were provided with a hearty, well cooked ( not swimmimg in grease) breakfast and later we were provided with an efficient transfer to Gatwick. On our return from the States we were met by Clive and taken the short distance back to Cumberland House where our car was waiting for us. All in all this was a great stress free experience and is highly reccomended.
Just the facts, Ma'am
This B&B is about 5-10 minutes from Gatwick Airport. The owners provide transportation to/from during their listed hours, otherwise it is a 5 pound taxi ride. The owners are extremely gracious and helpful. It is about a 3 minute walk down to the Six Bells Pub (restaurant) which is not to be missed if passing through this area. Although the B&B backs up to a relatively busy street in Horley, we slept with the windows open and were not disturbed. Our second floor room was comfortable, not opulent, but very clean and utilitarian. The full English breakfast will 'set you up for the day'. Due to its small size the owners are able to be responsive to guests needs and requests. If passing through the Gatwick airport area, this B&B is an excellent alternative to the large hotels, both in price and service.
A Very Welcome Rest!
We recently traveled to North Africa and returned to our home via London where we stayed at Cumberland House. What a delight! We had a wonderful time, and our hosts Carmel and Clive could not have been more generous and accommodating! We found them both to be helpful and considerate, particularly as we had a small baby with us, and were made to feel very welcome.
We would highly recommend Cumberland House to all travelers!
What a shame
We stayed here for one night before leaving for a holiday. We found Carmel very welcoming and hospitable both on the phone and when we met her in person. Our room was comfortable and clean and breakfast was good. We also enjoyed a meal at the Olde Six Bells pub that they recommended. What a shame then that during our lift to the airport, Clive found it acceptable to air his racist views.
Home away from home
We have been guests at the Cumberland House several times over the years when traveling through Gatwick.
It is a very convenient location, and Clive and Carmel are the most gracious of hosts. We hope to continue visiting in the future and the Cumberland House will always be our choice of where to stay. Highly recommend!
English hospitality combined with Irish charm
My wife Elizabeth & I needed a stopover near Gatwick en-route from Inverness to Paphos, Cyprus. Our initial enquiry to Cumberland House, by email was answered within minutes by Carmel. That kind of response is always very helpful when planning any kind of trip. Carmel's email contained all the relevant details to enable a booking to be set up. The offer of free collection from Gatwick and return there the following morning courtesy of Carmel's husband Clive, was gratefully accepted. The welcome at Cumberland House on a very cold and frosty night was unbelievable. Clive helped us in with our luggage while Carmel fixed us up with a glass of delightful hot mulled wine. After a perfect night's sleep in a warm, comfortable room, we woke up to some delicious aromas escaping from Carmel's kitchen. Refreshed after a great shower - English B&B showers can be very temperamental - they can either scald you you or freeze you to death, but this one was superb - plenty of pressure, combined with an ease for getting the temperature just right. We knew by the smell of freshly baked bread coming from the kitchen that the breakfast was going to be something special- it was..!! Perfect poached eggs with sausage & bacon, washed down with pots of piping hot coffee. Clive and Carmel are English & Irish respectively - a great combination..!! They obviously enjoy what they are doing and it shows. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Elizabeth & I stayed with them again on our return from Cyprus. A different room this time, but every bit as clean and comfortable as the first had been - and, yes another great shower & another great breakfast....
I first stay at Cumberland House in September of 2003, spending an entire week while visiting with a friend. In 2004 they were sadly booked up and I had to stay elsewhere. My, Cumberland House had certainly spoiled me and when I came back through on that particular trip I took a chance that they'd have a room and stopped by and they did have a room for me. It's always a bit like coming home. And the wonderful breakfasts! I stayed again in 2005 and now in 2006 and I must say that Carmel and Clive always take very good care of me. They provide transport to and from Gatwick, and did I mention the breakfasts? Despite being close to the airport it is very quiet and Six Bells Pub is just down the road and Horley is a great town for shopping and meals. I will always try to book in to Cumberland House when I am passing through Horley and I know I will be treated very well when I do.
An Excellent Stay
Last November 2005 I had a long journey from Cornwall to Gatwick with the National Express coach and needed somewhere comfortable to stay overnight near Gatwick Airport. I was very fortunate to find Cumberland House. I was made to feel very welcome by Carmel and Clive, both on the telephone when booking and on arrival. My room was spacious and comfortable with all mod cons and breakfast next morning was an excellent start to a very long day travelling to Florida! Highly recommended.

... on a hop on hop off bus tour around London we hopped off at the Big Ben and took a picture of big Ben in front of the Big Ben. We had lunch and then went to Madame Tussuad's there was a humongous line but we thankfully pre booked so we skipped it. Inside was very cool and kinda creepy how lifelike they looked. There were some fake photographers in the movie stars section and ...
Our accommodation at Horley was comfortable and well situated but not rare due to the proximity of the suburban area to Gatwick Airport where we were catching our plane to Paris the next day. We wandered about the town and down a cemetery lane to the Six Bells- a historic pub, where we enjoyed mulled cider and generous servings of pie, mash, chips and a feta and broadbean burger. Curry again for dinner, this time we managed to go get it ...
... UK hahaha. Just kidding, I love France! I even got to see the Lamborghini store since it was on the road I just happened to be walking down. I got back on the bus and it went down Piccadilly road again with lots of shops and famous places, like the royal grocery store. Then after passing the national mall, the bus went over the Tower Bridge (not London Bridge because these are two different kinds of bridges). While ...
