We could not have chosen a worst place to stay before going on holiday! It is in desperate need of a makeover and staff who are responsible for higher standards. The T.V. was old and sat on a dated, scratched unit. The Shower tiles grouting needed cleaning. The sink was cracked. There was a requirement to pay CASH for room... More

We had the misfortune to stay in this dump as part of a weekend package provided by Glenton Palmer (and that's another story) so we had no choice in booking the accommodation. This is a run down hotel maybe 25 five years old which has never been upgraded trading on its proximity to the airport. It is a dump. We... More

Booked this park and stay hotel the night before holiday. The hotel itself is really shabby and the bedroom we had was laughable. The bed is tiny and so is the TV. No space to swing a cat! We ordered a bar meal and the waitress brought it - bumped into someone - dropped food on the floor but carried... More

The room we had for our outward journey was adequate and reasonably furnished. As we left early in the morning we did not get a chance to have breakfast, so no comments. The hotel itself is close, adequate for the money one pays. However, please note that finding a parking place is not so easy, even though you reserve a... More

We were flying from Gatwick the morning after, so decided to stay somewhere in London close to the airport. We were off on honeymoon and the travel agent decided they would pay for us to stay. They looked at quite a few, and decided on this one as the pictures on the website looked really nice plus it had a... More

Reception was efficient and friendly. Room was basic - a bit tired and old-fashioned, but perfectly adequate for a stopover. We didn't find it dirty, smelly or falling apart but don't expect frills. Room was smallish but again OK for a stopover. Rather bizarrely the bed was placed asymmetrically in the room so my husband had about 6 inches his... More

Very convenient for Gatwick Airport and reasonably priced, but it needs some money investing as its getting rather the worse for wear. My second visit to this hotel was better than the first, where my room in the annexe was so small that when I lay in bed my head touched one wall and my feet the other (but I... More

Cannot believe how disgustingly dirty this hotel is. We chose this hotel for a park and stay from Gatwick and will never be going there again. The staff were so helpful and pleasant, it was bizarre that they could be so professional and remain positive in such an awful place. We had excellent service from them, but can't understand how...
