    Historical Traveler Reviews The Lawn Guest House Horley

    Unwelcoming hosts made for an uncomfortable stay

    from

    We felt very unwelcome at the Lawn Guest House. Our hosts said fewer than 3 sentences to us and thier attitude was cold. The rooms were OK but the beds were samll. There are lots of signs posted like "ring this bell, don't ring this one", or" do you have one of our keys in your pocket", I felt like a child in my parents house". Nothing to recommend this one. There are B and Bs all along the street so there are other choices. Its better and cheaper to be in town than one of the airport hotels but not this one.

    PS the Hilton connects to the airport so if you have the money its convenient.

    Comfortable Convenience Personified

    from

    This is the second time I've stayed in The Lawn Guest House, and would go back for a third and more times. It's just excellent value for the money. Mr. Grinsted is a most gracious host, and very organized with his time. His rooms (I've stayed in a single and this time, in a double) contain everything a weary traveler could want. Breakfast is great, too. The little town of Horley is fun to walk around, and there are any number of eateries and pubs to have a lunch or dinner. My favorite is an old pub called the Three (or is Four?) Bells - great food, sitting by the river, and the pub itself is hundreds of years old. Mr. Grinsted gives travelers a gratis ride to Gatwick Airport - so it's nice not to have to bother with a taxi for the ride there.

    Fantastic

    from

    We couldn't have been more pleased. The Lawn Guest House was extremely convenient for traveling via Gatwick Airport. The innkeepers have all the bases covered: clean, quiet, all non-smoking rooms, ample breakfasts (full English and/or fruit and muesli), shuttle service to Gatwick and very pleasant service to boot.

    It was everything we'd hoped for. We will stay here again.

    Couldn't Be Happier

    from

    Excellent guest house very close to Gatwick Airport. Very helpful and efficient hosts. Large comfortable room and lovely breakfast. Host will transport you to the hotel and even makes internet available. But book early because this is a favorite for many travlers.

    Don't bother with Hotels, this is much nicer

    from

    Have stayed at a number of pre-flight hotels in and around Gatwick and have researched many others.

    This is by far the nicest and most economical stay I've had.

    The room was nice, the breakfast was just right and the cost was even better! Would definately recommend this place to others.

    Great place

    from

    Very charming, clean and excellent breakfast.....Only 7 euro taxi from Gatwick. Free return transport to Gatwick....Very, Very nice couple the runs it. Waited up for us for a midnight arrival from italy...I would return....

    Great value

    from

    The Lawn Guest House was a special find! Not only did they pick you up and drop you off at Gatwick AT NO EXTRA CHARGE, but the room on the front of the house was lovely and the breakfast was excellent! Extremely professional - they have this down to a science - no foul ups when making airport connections. Plus our room had a ceiling fan to keep things cool. SOOOO convenient. Try it - you'll like it.

    One Of Our Best Discoveries In England

    from

    We have stayed at The Lawn on several trips and always find the quality to be of the highest level. The guest house is located within an easy walk of the train station, shops, and a variety of good restaurants. Adrian and staff are a wonderful source of hospitality and travel information. Transportation to and from the airport is available; however, if you decide to take a taxi from Gatwick, the fare is very low. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. We always look foward to the hospitability basket including tea, coffee, chocolates and biscuits....especially when adjusting to the time difference in the middle of the night. A list of recommended restaurants with menus and directions is in the room along with loads of other amenities......even wash cloths (a rare find in Europe). We feel that finding The Lawn was one of our best discoveries in England. In fact, we look forward to staying there again in December.

    Wonderful place to stay!

    from

    My husband and I stayed at this guest house for one night before our flight left the next day back to the United States. We enjoyed the stay very much! Although the owner was not available to pick us up when we got there, the son met us at the door of the beautiful cottage-like house after we arrived in taxi and told us about several places to eat in the area. We took his highest recommendation and went to eat at an 1,000-year-old pub nearby and had a wonderful meal! The room at the Lawn was impeccable, and very nice, with an en suite bathroom and comfortable bed. We had a great sleep and woke up the next morning to a very complete English breakfast served by the amiable owners. Then we were whisked off to the airport in their car in time for our flight. The room was also very reasonable in price. We would most definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone!

    Wonderful find !

    from

    We stayed at the Lawn Guest House for a one night stay on a return from Italy to Georgia. We had pre-booked the reservation directly with Mr.

    Grinsted, the owner. he delivered all that he said.....upon our arrival at Gatwick, we cleared customs and called the Lawn. Within 5 minutes, Mr., Grinstead was at the curb to pick us up. He loaded our luggage and drove us to his home. We were immediately checked in and he took our bags to the room. The room had all amenities that one could want. A typical English breakfast is served and Mr. Grinstead returned us to the airport to catch our departing flight. What a nice alternative to a hotel ! The area is loaded with other guest houses and my family will not stay in hotel in the London area again.

    What is there to say about Harrods? As a department store, it certainly broke the mold. There are over 330 departments encompassing everything from clothing to electronics, home furnishings to individual jewellery counters for Cartier, Tiffany's, de Beers, among others. We passed a Porsche department on our way in. There's ...

Thirty minutes pounding the pavement, and I was done. So it was back to Swiss Cottage for a rest. I'll check out the restaurant and bar at the hostel tonight, and plan a more active schedule for ...

    ... Base Court. When Wolsey fell from grace (and the grand estate may have had some influence, but it had more to do with the Pope not granting Henry an annulment of his marriage to Katherine of Aragon) the property was taken over by Henry, as was Wolsey's London house.

    Between 1528 and 1540 Henry spent the equivalent of about $A30 million on renovations to Hampton Court, turning it into a palace and adding magnificent gardens, tennis courts, and ...

    I was booked into another walking tour, called the South Bank tour, so I took the train back to Covent Garden from where the tour left (the same place as the pub crawl). This, too, was a cool area, but I did not have too much time to admire it: I quickly got a pizza at Pizza Express and hotfooted it to the tour meeting point. I ...
