So I've just walked into the Waterhall near Gatwick
and right underneath my feet is an example of 1840s flooring.
It's period features like this that you can expect to find throughout this 18th century guesthouse.
It's just six miles from the airport, but rests in this peaceful, rural setting.
Where there are 34 acres of grounds, including this immaculate garden, to enjoy.
And if you're really lucky, you might even spot some of the local deer.
Coming into the hotel via the conservatory extension and you're in the dining room.
British classics are served here in the evening and this is also where you'll get breakfast
in the morning. A cooked breakfast is available from 7 to 9,
but there's also a cold buffet option as well.
Moving into what's referred to as the bar, although frankly it's a bit more like a sitting room
where you can buy yourself a drink, you'll find a relaxed,
laid-back atmosphere that feels a bit like home.
Next door to the bar is this snug, with its very own open fire,
which is particularly gratifying in the Winter months.
And nowhere is that homely guesthouse-feel more prevalent than in the bedrooms,
where every single one has been finished to a completely different style.
Some are quaint and cheerful;
others are plush and luxurious.
When it comes to getting to the airport, the hotel will arrange a taxi to come and collect you
Cabs are available 24 hours a day,
and take between 10 and 15 minutes to reach Gatwick airport.
So that's the Waterhall at Gatwick, a friendly, warm family-run guesthouse
that definitely deserves a look-in.
