We have been returning to the Vulcan Lodge for over 8 years now, staying there the night before whenever we fly out from Gatwick airport. The B&B came highly recommended from a family friend who also used the establishment for many years. The B&B is run by the delightful couple, Karen and Colin, and is always warm, clean and welcoming....

Just returned from a delightful one night stay with Karen and Colin. The guesthouse is set back from the road -so it's lovely and quiet and the room was very comfortable and warm. Karen and Colin are perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble. I will definitely go back and stay again and can highly recommend. Thanks for a...

This was a lovely way to end our month long Italian vacation with two nights at the Vulcan Lodge, before leaving for our home back in Canada via Gatwick. It's a 350 or so year old, quaint home beautifully restored and renovated and tastefully decorated throughout. Very comfortable rooms nicely attired in traditional English Laura Ashley fashion. Breakfast was wonderful...

I had a great stay at this property, and they offer an out of hours method of gaining entry after 10 pm. It was very quiet even though its a couple of miles from the airport; the B & B doesnt have a shuttle service but local taxis are good value. All my emails with the staff were very quickly...

Sadly I didn't get to spend an awful lot of time at Vulcan lodge because I was delayed arriving until nearly 11pm, and I had to leave early next morning for a 6am flight. But my hosts were excellent at arranging that I could get in ok, and even stayed up to say hello and see me to my room....

This is a superb guest house ideally situated near to Gatwick Airport. It is ideal for staying the night before a flight, and the owners, Karen and Colin, will look after your car for you whilst away by keeping it safely on the hotel's premises rather than having it removed off site.The main attraction is the warm welcome given to...

We have tried a number of guest houses or cheaper hotels (expensive ones too!) for stop overs pre early flights. Vulcan Lodge is up there with the best. The welcome from Karen (and a lovely dog!) was warm and friendly. The room was comfortable and spotless with nice touches including water filter, bottled water, tea/coffee etc. We left too early...
