Clive and Carmell know just what to do to make a stop over with them absolutely on the button. There is no hesitation in giving their hospitality all the circles above. We as many others have enjoyed accomodation over several years now and the recent refurbishment has lifted the house to a new level. The tea and muffins on arrival... More

Convenient location for Gatwick but also perfect for the Six Bells restaurant just a 5 minute walk away. Carmel and Clive are exemplary hosts and the drive into Gatwick is just about 10 minutes to north or south terminals. We also received a free room upgrade. Excellent breakfasts.

Stayed at Cumberland House on 30th September for 1 night before flying off to Florida. Can't recommend this hotel enough. Clive even ran us to a curry house and collected us again in the evening. Lovely breakfast, everything you could ask for, lovely people, wouldn't stay anywhere else. Booking for next year.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at Cumberland House and I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I have a flight to catch from Gatwick. Carmel and Clive's generosity and hospitality is exceptional and the newly renovated rooms are always clean and comfortable. Breakfast is lovely and the free airport shuttle helps to make any trip easier!
