John made us so welcome. The room was lovely with really good quality towels in the ensuite. He very kindly took us there and back to the restaurant in Reigate that we had booked for the evening. Then he ferried us to Gatwick the next day, looking after our car all week and collecting us on our return and charging us less than half the Gatwick price. All in all a delight to stay here.
From the moment I opened my car door on the gravel drive, I was wholeheartedly made welcome by John. A fresh cup of tea was made and I immediately warmed to this charming environment.
Everything from beginning to end - the surprise glass of wine, chat with Judith (as well as finding out that we knew someone in common!) and great nights' sleep in a magnificent room followed by some of the best breakfasts I have ever eaten (muesli followed by cooked breakfast!) - made for the best weekend I could have hoped for!
Nothing was too much of a problem for John or Judith. The conversation was stimulating, the environment was just perfect, the food and drink were amazing, the bed exceptionally comfortable and the closeness to Reigate and Gatwick really helpful for the purpose of my visit.
I will most definitely put John's place as my number 1 on AirBnB. If you ever want a place to relax, feel like a hone from home, this is the place. John loves people and in turn, people warm to him. I wanted to stay for ever, but sadly my normal life beckoned me back. That said, I will return!
Thank you so much, John and Judith, for welcoming me as part of the family!
John was an extremely welcoming host. He very kindly picked us up from our daughters house nearby, as she had recently had twins. So not a lot of room left for Granny & Grandad! Throughout our stay, he drove us and collected from her house whenever we needed it. We were offered a drink as soon as we arrived at his home and made very welcome. Our room was very comfortable, the bed was lovely and we slept very well. The en-suite bathroom had everything you need. Breakfast was fabulous! Not only did John bake his own bread, but the choice we had was wonderful - from fresh fruit to the full English Breakfast, everything cooked to perfection. We will certainly be going back to see them again as we got on so well and had a lot in common. Gren & Catherine Rigby
Everything about staying with John was great! His cottage is in a beautiful rural setting, yet convenient for Reigate, Gatwick etc. He welcomed us with a cup if tea and then very kindly took us to and collected us from the wedding we were attending. The room is just as pictured, with a very comfortable bed, plenty of towels, toiletries, drink making facilities - John has thought of everything.
The breakfast was fantastic with fresh fruit, home-made bread, home-made jam and a delicious cooked breakfast.
Last but not least, John and Judith are good company and we really enjoyed chatting to them.
Merci beaucoup à John pour son accueil, sa disponibilité, ses conseils, sa patience.
Le petit déjeuner de John est super.
La chambre correspond en tout point à ce qui est décrit.
John est disponible pour accompagner à la gare, au pub
Nous ne pouvons mettre que 5 étoiles, mais selon ma fille, il faudrait pouvoir en mettre 6.
Un grand merci de Gaïdig et Cécile pour ce séjour
John and Judith were extremely welcoming, especially given our late arrival. John's house is a tranquil haven which takes you by surprise being only 10 minutes from Gatwick. We had forgotten our bag with papers/boarding passes etc in and John very kindly let us print off new passes (and supplied toothpaste), thus alleviating my partner's growing panic! John prepared a light breakfast and even ran us to the airport at 4.30am for which I am eternally grateful. I was impressed with his intelligent and gracious manner and would thoroughly recommend him and his lovely home.
It was a great pleasure to come back to John's house for a second time within one week England, before our return home to Belgium. John was as usual, very nice welcoming us and making us feel at home in his house.
We had a fantastic overnight stay with John. The room was wonderful, his directions clear and breakfast so delightful we almost didn't want to leave. John is also well travelled and gave us some tips and the loan of 2 guidebooks to help us on our holiday. All in all a 5* experience; we heartily recommend!
What a good choice we made to start our trip through England at John's house. He and Judith were just lovely, very concerned about our comfort and well-being.
Merci beaucoup, cher John, c'était super. Si l'occasion se représente, nous y retournerons sans hésiter!
John and Judith were warm, friendly and welcoming hosts in their comfortable home, in a lovely, peaceful rural setting. John makes the best breakfast in the south of England! I would definitely visit again.
Judith and her friends were pleasant guests, friendly and easy to talk to. Communication beforehand worked very well, always a plus when arranging check-in times. We had an enjoyable time chatting in the evening and over breakfast. Recommended as guests!
John and Judith are simply lovely. It was such a treat to meet them during their visit to Seattle. They were wonderful to communicate with and were amazingly accommodating when dealing with a random and unfortunate maintenance issue that arose during their visit. I am very appreciative of their flexibility and proactive outlook, and I look forward to seeing them again and checking out their fabulous property in the UK. Thanks guys!
