An elegant country house, 10 minutes from the airport

When is a Gatwick airport hotel not a Gatwick airport hotel? When it's Stanhill Court; a historic country house, set in more than thirty acres of grounds, with unique bedrooms, filled with character, and a fantastic restaurant, all within easy reach of both Gatwick terminals.

Very good. All went according to plan and good to have a nights sleep before the short trip to the airport

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, decor 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.

We recommend the Stanhill Court for:

Character – Stanhill Court was a beautiful 19th-century family home, which has been faithfully renovated into a hotel bursting with character. The lobby area has real 'wow' factor, with a gas fire place, wood panelling and stained glass. Most of the rooms exude period glamour with high ceilings and wood panneling on the walls. This is not just an airport hotel; it is a genuine country house hotel that's your home for the night.

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 Executive rooms at Stanhill Court have a romantic and relaxing atmosphere with most featuring views of the South Downs, as well as high ceilings and extra amenities Couples can also head out into the grounds to stroll hand in hand and get cosy over drinks in the Residents Bar.
