ABOUT GATWICK BELMONT HOTEL

The Gatwick Belmont hotel, in Horley, West Sussex, was originally built in 1901 by a local doctor for his family home, it was named Mena House and then many years later it was changed to a Guest House by Mr Gucci. Being in such close proximity to Gatwick Airport it soon turned in to a thriving business, in 1996 Kevin & Kathleen Hagerty purchased Belmont House with 7 letting bedrooms. Due to the increasing demand, they soon asked their son, Gary, to help run the hotel. The guest house became increasingly popular and was extended 4 times expanding the hotel to 18 bedrooms and a bar restaurant.

The name of the hotel was changed from Belmont House to Gatwick Belmont and is a registered company in the UK under Gatwick Belmont Ltd.

The hotel employs a team of 20 staff to cover the various shifts that make up 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

FAMILY HISTORY

The Hagerty family became interested in buying a bed and breakfast close to Gatwick Airport due to their friendship with Graham and Rosie Everett who owned Gainsborough Lodge Guest House which is located just across the road.

They had run Gainsborough Lodge for a number of years and when another Gatwick B & B came up for sale The Castle Lodge Gatwick Graham put the owner in touch with the Hagerty family, the whole purchase process began and things were moving forward. But as is often the case with the UK property system the owners of the Castle Lodge Gazumped or pulled out on the final day and final hour which left the Hagerty family after selling there own family home no where to live and forced to rent a flat.

As is the case with many things in life luck was on there side, within weeks another property went up for sale – this time, The Gatwick Belmont Hotel – and everything went to plan. Soon after the purchase completed the expansion started to turn a small guest house in to a hotel and 20 years later this is what we have.

WHAT TYPE OF CUSTOMERS STAY AT GATWICK BELMONT

There are numerous reasons why customers stay in the Gatwick Airport (LGW) vacnity – of course most of it is related to flying, many people book worldwide flights that only fly from Gatwick and not their local airports, so people have to drive from Cornwall, Devon, South Wales, Midlands or even from the North of England. Many customers even a lot closer will drive up the night before to avoid the risk of getting stuck in traffic and missing there flight also people from the Channel Islands who cant risk a connecting flight will stay the night in Gatwick.

We offer Gatwick Parking for all our customers while on holiday which they find a very convenient service especially with airport transfers which is actually closer than many of the off site Gatwick parking facilities.

American and Canadian customers have favoured the Gatwick Belmont Hotel there place to stay for many years, weather in-between flights, seeing family or visiting London and the South Coast. Many European customers use the Gatwick hotel due to LGW being a major hub for flights to the rest of the world.

Business travellers, people working or training in the area also find our Gatwick bed and breakfast accommodation rates very competitive while having to stay away from home and the cozy atmosphere creates a home from home feeling.
