Stanhill Court was originally built in 1881 as a family home for the Scottish landowner and Lloyds of London underwriter William Young. The hotel has a warm feel thanks to the carved, pine panelling throughout the hall, minstrel's gallery and barrel roof. There's also a gorgeous window of original stained glass, which depicts the family coat of arms and adds a unique 'wow' factor to the lobby.

Set in 32 acres of gardens, with a further three acres of forest, Stanhill Court has country views from every window, and feels a world away from those hectic runways. The atmosphere here is of understated class, with high-quality furnishings, décor and food, and an emphasis on superior service.

Plenty of space to park in the rolling parklands

For those travelling to Gatwick airport by car, Stanhill Court is an excellent choice. The hotel is located just a 12-minute drive from junction 10 of the M23 and an easy 10-minute drive from both the north and south terminals, yet offers a country atmosphere to help you relax and get into the holiday mood.

If you choose to stay at Stanhill Court, your best parking option is to leave your vehicle in the hotel's secluded, on-site car park for the duration of your holiday. To get to the airport, simply have the hotel book you a taxi for a flat fee of £10. If you’re coming by public transport, Gatwick airport and Horley train station are both about a 10-minute taxi journey away.

Staying at Stanhill Court allows you to start your holiday early, with a memorable dinner in the high-quality Restaurant 1881, which offers truly excellent table d’hote dining and has been awarded two AA rosettes. The hotel also has a Patio Bar, which serves a simple menu of sandwiches and mains and is open until 11.30pm for drinks. There’s also free wifi throughout the hotel and a cosy library just off the lobby – the perfect place to enjoy a nightcap.

We recommend the Stanhill Court for:

Character – Stanhill Court is a beautiful 19th-century family home, which has been well maintained and faithfully renovated into a hotel bursting with character. The lobby and lounge area has real 'wow' factor, with wood paneling and stained glass, and the rooms exude period glamour with dark wood, antique furniture and high-quality fabrics. This is not just any airport hotel, this is a genuine country house that's your home for the night.

Food and drink – The food at Stanhill Court would put many top London restaurants to shame. Restaurant 1881 holds two AA rosettes and offers a very reasonably-priced table d’hote two- or three-course menu for both lunch and dinner. The bar also serves a selection of hot and cold meals, and the lounge area is a relaxing place to start your holiday with a fine wine from the hotel’s extensive list.

Nature – Just because you need to be close to Gatwick airport the night before your holiday doesn’t mean you need to be sleeping right on top of it. Stanhill Court is located in 35 acres of beautiful grounds and features views of the South Downs and surrounding woodlands, yet it’s just a short 10-minute drive from both the north and south terminals. You won’t see planes taking off from your window; instead you’ll enjoy a country atmosphere in an unbeatable Gatwick-adjacent location.

Couples – The rooms at Stanhill Court, especially the four posters and character rooms, have a romantic and relaxing atmosphere, and Restaurant 1881 is a fairytale dining room, perfect for couples, thanks to its historic fireplace, chandelier and candlelight. Couples can also head out into the grounds to stroll hand in hand and get cosy over drinks in the wood-paneled library.
