Its a hotel, I'm not at home so is this the holiday? Fairly uneventfull drive from home to this hotel which will allow us to leave the car here until we return. Its a nice place, big room, comfy, has wi-fi so what more do you want? Taxi to Gatwick tomorrow morning and then the flight to Toronto so hopefully the next blog will from some distance away. Didnt spot any moose on the drive
Today I was on as a back-up.
Pretty much that means that I rock up at the required time in uniform, and I either get put on the shift and work the whole shift or get sent home and still get 2 hours pay.
I got the latter.
At first I was a bit annoyed as it's not much money, but then I went to look for work at a place that I REALLY wanted to work.
I first heard about ...
... a picky eater. She insisted we eat there and we found a great restaurant with a good set meal special and ate until we could not eat any more.
That was our last night out but on the way back we ran into some Americans and we discussed how cold it has been. This is by far the coldest I have been in London, in fact some of the towns just outside have had enough snow that they cancelled school. On tv it Evan looked like the ground was white but we only had flurries.
... a month in Bali is what I said! From SA we head to the great city of Hong Kong for a few nights and then it's on to Bali, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and then road tripping through the states - ending in Vegas where we plan to marry Elvis style in the chapel of love ;-) perhaps a wee honeymoon in Mexico after this but will see about time and moola at that stage So peeps, feel free to comment on any blog postings we put up, send ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Waterhall Country House, Gatwick Crawley
I have stayed at this "home from home" retreat on many occasions on business and have found it to be consistantly outstanding in all respects.
When away on business this is a wonderful bolthole to get away from it in fantastic surroundings. The owners cannot do enough for you and the food and "Tea" (beer) are excellent.
There is no aircraft noise at night and I have never been disturbed.
Top rate place, you can keep your big hotels, this is by far the best in the area.
Couldn't agree more with previous poster. Awful place with arrogant owners and located right under the Gatwick flight path. They conveniently fail to tell you about this and you won't get any sleep staying here - not the best way to start a holiday! Give it a miss.
Very convenient,friendly, helpful - a very good place to stay
Wonderful service, homely - could`nt wish for anything more - and convenient for travelling out of Gatwick- now on our 3rd visit.Keep up the good work.
Under Gatwick Flight Path!
If you want a sleepless night then stay at Waterhall!
The location is nice as the blurb says but they forget to tell you that you will see, hear & feel jumbo jets day & night! Not a good way to start a holiday -would also agree with previous review that the owners were unfriendly.
Best place to stay near Gatwick by far.
If you need to stay near Gatwick either to visit friends or for the airport I cannot recommend the Waterhall highly enough.
Not only is it a lovely place to stay but the owners Anne and Andy make complete strangers feel like old friends.
The accomodation was immaculate with excellent facilities in the bedrooms.
I stayed in the Waterhall Country House, in a deluxe double room so that I had easy access to Gatwick the following morning. The room was absolutely spotless and furnished to a high standard. Andy was fabulous - we arrived late, he lugged my extremely heavy suitcase up the stairs then pointed us in the direction of the 'Lams Green' pub. Go there if you can - lovely pub, log fire, fabulous food and the service was outstanding. Anyway, back to Waterhall House. Breakfast in the morning was lovely - full English, perfectly cooked. No deer in the garden but loads of squirrels jumping about! Andy then took me to the airport (5 min drive). I would definatly go there again, and recommend to anyone.
Many thanks to all at Waterhall House - you are a credit to your trade!
First, I must say I have been looking for a website to Waterhall House for a long time. I stayed at this very picturesque B&B back in 1998. I was leaving the UK after staying in London at the Florida State University Facility on Great Russell Street for the summer. Upon arriving at Waterhall I was treated very well. The room was very comfortable and spotless. The next days breakfast was stupendous and made my day as I was on a trans-Atlantic flight to the US that morning. The staff was very nice and offered to call a taxi for me for my trip to Gatwick. I don't know if it is still owned by the same people but if I ever get the chance I would love to stay there again. A very comfortable stay for the traveller.
Home from home
Stayed for three nights whilst away on business and made most welcome at Waterhall by Ann, Andy and Molly the dog. What a wonderful house in a gorgeous location. Just far enough away from Crawley to forget about work. Loved dining in the conservatory overlooking the fantastic garden. Ate breakfast watching deer, squirrels and birds in the grounds!! Everywhere is spotless and the food is great. Evening meals are definitely a bonus for those nights when you are too tired to venture out. What a treat to come back to a home-cooked meal in such a lovely house! Everyone made us very welcome and were very kind and helpful. Thanks for a very comfortable stay. See you again soon.
Lovely place, nice people.
Lovely house in lovely grounds. The hotel was absolutely spotless throughout. The rooms were very comfortable. The food was DELICIOUS.
The owners cooked a special request meal that I asked for in advance although the meals on the menu are lovely.
Felt very at home.
Andy, Ann and the other staff were very friendly and helpful. We watched deer, squirrels and other wildlife in the garden as we ate breakfast. I am going again next week!
Nice accommodation but unfriendly management
This B&B was extremely convient for our stay, since we were making a trans-Atlantic flight from Gatwick the following day. The room was fantastic and food good. I was, however, rather alarmed to overhear the management discussing myself and my girlfriend rather loudly in the kitchen in the morning. Their comments were inaccurate and extremely insulting, not to mention unprofessional. On our return to collect the car, I was accused of damaging a cushion in the bedroom and attempting to hide it. When I offered to compensate, my money was refused - I was left feeling guilty for damage I had been totally unaware of. I was not shown the supposed damage. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
