It was only for one night before an early morning flight back to Spain so we went cheap and paid for two rooms at £35.00 each for the room and an additional £10.00 each for a three course evening meal. The hotel is dirty, smelly and one of our rooms had no heating because the radiator controls were missing so... More

We didn't pay much for this hotel thankfully! The initial appearance of the hotel is lovely..... Then you walk down the corridor to towards the bedrooms and you start to get the idea of what the rooms are going to be like. Very dated! We entered our room which felt very small and was very dated. The bathroom roof was... More

If you took any of the furniture of this hotel to a charity shop, they would refuse to take it. The whole place is damp, grimy and unpleasant. The bed was old and uneven. It felt like it had been there far too long. I suspect it was bought secondhand from an epileptic walrus. I wouldn't store anything in the... More

Stayed overnight for an early flight. Hotel lobby was cold, grubby and the furniture dirty and shabby. The upstairs lobby area was really dark and unwelcoming. To make matters worse, the hotel had lots of immigrants/refugees hanging around. The room was barely adequate and lots of smears/stains on the walls. Thankfully the bed was clean and comfortable. The only redeeming... More

Sadly this hotel is not being looked after. While it is great for parking near gatwick the rooms and hotel over all is dirty and unpleasant. I would advise people to pay a bit more and stay anywhere else! Hopefully the owners can give the place a clean and get rid of the smell of drugs in the halls. Staff... More

This is THE WORST I repeat THE WORST hotel I have ever had the misfortune to stay in. They sell you a vile room which reminds me of the worst of the 1960s seaside doss houses. If I didn't have to give it one vote I wouldn't. There is no parking as its full of cars staying 2 weeks flying... More
