Overall rating: 88%by 250 guests
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.

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 dhote 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 hotels extensive list.
Nature Just because you need to be close to Gatwick airport the night before your holiday doesnt 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 its just a short 10-minute drive from both the north and south terminals. You wont see planes taking off from your window; instead youll 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.
