Stanhill Court Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We thought the hotel staff were excellent, as was the restaurant food and service. THIS IS AN EVENTS HOTEL WHICH ALSO OFFERS A PARK AND FLY SERVICE. Our review relates to the park and fly service only. The taxi service, crucially, is reliable and efficient. the fare is a fixed @ £10 to and from the airport and it operates from at least 6:00 am; we don't know if you can get earlier bookings. The same company will pick you up on your return. There are no lifts, so if you can so arrange it, leave the hold baggage in your car and retrieve it before you depart.

We stayed at Stanhill Court hotel twice over the last few days. The first time was before travelling for a weeks holiday with an early flight. We had the three course meal option and were very happy with our meal. The taxi turned up the next morning on time. Although we hadn't planned staying another night, we decided to stay another night on our return and once more were very happy with our stay. We also had a meal in the bar area this time that was very good. We certainly loved the hotel and after coming back from a stay in a very modern 5 star hotel, we appreciated the cosiness of Stanhill Court. We will certainly book again without hesitation next time we have an early flight from Gatwick. In fact some of our friends have booked for next week. Thank you to all and special thanks to the lady at the reception for not rushing us yesterday morning

Chose this hotel for a bed and parking before leaving from Gatewick. Everything went smoothly. Lovely setting, parking safe, good evening meal, Taxi on time to take us and prompt pickup on return. Would use this hotel again

Before we went to Cuba we booked at Stanhill Court on a dinner, bed and parking deal. Every thing was excellent the room first class (four poster bed) and the food was of good quality. The only downsize was that there was no lift. Not very good if you need to get large suitcases up stairs! Would use the hotel agin but make sure we only took a small suitcase upstairs.

We stayed here for the one night and left our car for two weeks whilst flying away on holiday from Gatwick. Reception staff were courteous and helpful and booked the taxi to the airport for our early morning start. The hotel is a beautiful manor house set in large grounds and with plenty of parking. It was quiet and not on the Gatwick flight path. Our room was comfortable and the facilities were perfectly adequate. A nice little bar in which to have a pre-holiday drink. The only negative comment would be that there is no lift which made getting our heavy cases upstairs quite an effort!

Wanted a quite place to stay a little week, close to Gatwick airport and train-station, and this aim, was surely full-filled :) - The hotel had nice and calm atmosphere. If you want to walk to the nearest town, you shall only do in daylight, as you must walk in the side of the road - The surrounding park could do with a gentle hand.

Hi guys I'm glad you took the time to read my review on the Stanhill Court Hotel... This hotel is of the year 1881 and is a beautifull piece of historic architecture. Upon arrival I was greeted at reception by two beautifully presented staff both were very helpfull and polite even thou I was suffering with Australian flu they made me feel at home and welcome at all times... I booked my room through booking .com so it cost me £89 which i thought was a bargain for such a lovely place the bed is firm which suites me as I have a bad back the room was clean and very tidy really pleased.... I had dinner in the bar resturant which was delitefull and the steak and veg I had was exquisite very well cooked and very tasty All in all I would recommend this hotel 110% book with confidence An added service is that if your flying from Gatwick they do a car drop off service for 10 ukgbp a week which is very good... ok guys please see the photos attached very good hotel

We used this place as a pre flight booking for Gatwick 10 mins away. What the attraction was leaving the car there instead of the airport. The car park was ok but not well lit or well maintained. Some near by parking for blue badge holders which my wife is was closer to the door. Unfortunately what we hoped would be a quite pre flight stay over wasn't. We arrived to find the place jammed packed with a Wedding party in progress. I got my wife safely through the crowd to our room near the back of the hotel. Then after about an hour or so I then started ferrying the cases through the remaining crowds blocking the door way / stairs. The room was nice and clean with a four poster bed but unfortunately because of the wedding party the food option was awful. We had to join a Christmas set meal what seem to be a works party. Food service slow and food average so it wasted a lot more time there than we wanted so we left well before the end as we had to be up for 6am the next morning. The other quests were noisy. Reception doesn't open before 7am and while closing time is 11pm in the evening it was shut well before that time. There was a phone option but that seem to wake someone up not at the hotel when I rang at 6am (as I didn't know what to do with the key as the doors had to be locked with the key) I would like to try it again without a Wedding event on or the need for an early start. One nice plus was it had a few carp ponds outside. Would have been nice to see it in good daylight (but likely to hit more wedding parties I fear in the summer if arriving on a Friday as we did) Tea facilities and quite a few stairs so not ideally if you have limited mobility. Décor was very nice

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in May, the night before we flew to Mexico. We found a deal with holiday extras, we got a night in the hotel and 16 days parking for around £100, and in and around Gatwick we thought that was a pretty good deal. We arrived around 5ish from what I remember after getting stuck in standstill traffic at Heathrow! And we were quickly checked in and off to our room we went, if I remember rightly, we stayed in room 4, we had a four poster bed, fairly new ensuite and a view of the front of the hotel. We were offered to eat in the restaurant but declined and ate in the bar area, and then sat out on the terrace as it was a beautiful evening. The food for what we had was a little overpriced, but looking at the restaurant prices and that standard of food that was served, it looks about right and we wished we'd eaten in the restaurant instead. We booked a taxi transfer to the airport through the hotel, and they do a special deal for only £10 each way. The hotel is situated around 5 miles away from both North and South terminals, yet somehow gives you the feeling of being no where near the airport, it's surrounded by gorgeous views and fields of green as far as the eye can see. We had such a relaxed evening before our flight, and the hotel service was great. We can't wait to book our next stay.

After reading the varied reviews about this hotel we decided to try it out for ourselves. All I can say it was a lovely hotel! The room was huge with a four poster bed! The dinner was amazing (all three courses) If you’re after a modern style Hilton hotel this isn’t the place for you. If you’re after a classic 19th century hotel with stunning feature and brilliant customer service, this is definitely for you! Will I be going back....oh yes, yes, yes!!
