A big country house with a little price tag

The Russ Hill began life as a country manor and still retains a charming, rustic feel. Although this large, friendly lodge is just 10 minutes' drive from Gatwick's terminals, it enjoys picturesque rural views of nearby Surrey – something of a rarity at an airport hotel.

Cosy, comfortable and close to south terminal

The Russ Hill offers well-soundproofed and comfortable rooms, a cosy bar and an informal dining room which serves breakfast and buffet-style dinners. The Russ Hill’s theme is traditional British – from the wood-panelled walls and high-backed armchairs to the roasted dinners and local pub feel of the bar; it’s a refreshing contrast to the familiar chain hotels that dominate the area. All rooms are en-suite and have a television, and free wifi is available in the hotel's public areas. A bus runs hourly to the airport terminals (see Getting There for further details); or it’s a quick taxi ride.

The hotel was stunning on arrival so had high expectations. Didn't sleep once though as it was so uncomfortable and hot, window was tiny with double windows on so it was hard to get air and the air con didn't work. Not what I needed before an early flight

Miss Leggett (Gatwick Russ Hill)

Everything went smoothly, however the whole place could do with an upgrade or at least a lick of paint. staff were very helpful.

Mrs Davies (Gatwick Russ Hill)

The package was spoilt by the 50 minute wait at Gatwick airport pick-up point on the way home.
Hotel was fine.

Mr Pringle (Gatwick Russ Hill)

Hotel was dingy and found mould in the wardrobe. We arrived late, and the carvery was cold and had obviously been sitting around along time as it was fairly unedible. Noise outside our room in the early hours of a large group of drunk guys. Would never stay there again.

Miss Williams (Gatwick Russ Hill)

Just perfect.pick your car up from where you left it:no queing to getyour car keys back as you didn't hand them over and nobody else drove your car.Will definitely use again.Good bar and food at reasonable prices.Rooms a bit on the small side but adequate for purpose.

We recommend the Russ Hill for:

Rural charm - the hotel is set in a green and peaceful location that’s still within easy reach of the airport.

Comfort - clean, pleasant rooms with springy beds decorated in light, fresh colours make for a good night’s sleep.

Families - there’s a choice of family rooms with double and bunk beds, so no matter what your family arrangement is there’ll be a perfect room to suit. Kids are well catered for at the hotel’s restaurant and are welcome at the bar.


Check-in is from 3pm, and the latest check-out is at noon.
