Stayed here end of novemeber for 1 night, in order to catch an early flight from Gatwick. We arrived pretty late at night due to traffic but was checked in very quickly. We had an enormous room!!!! We were so impressed!! And what felt like a super king bed which was so comfy! An adequate bathroom which is perfect for... More

We booked this with a Gatwick airport car park stay. The room was modern, clean, well decorated, with a nice bar area. Staff were helpful and I believe there is someone at reception 24 hours, as we arrived at 22.00. We would definitely do this again, as it was a stress free start to our holiday. Approx 10 min drive... More

We have stayed at the Menzies Chequers Gatwick several times over the last few years, with a Hotel/ parking package through Holiday Extras, normally with a meet and greet service on the return. The hotel offers reasonable value and the food in the restaurant is also reasonably priced. The rooms are a bit basic and fairly comfortable, although we always... More

I booked two rooms for colleagues to use in January and was tipped off by someone in the know that the hotel had closed. I'm still waiting to receive notification of the closure. Had I not been advised my colleagues would be turning up to an empty hotel - disgraceful behaviour on the part of Menzies.

We also stayed one night in November 2013 before flying to Florida and had no idea that the Hotel was closing. Good thing that we slid in by the skin of our teeth. Now off to check the pub at the Hotel.

We booked this hotel for a one night stop just before travelling to Sharm el Sheikh due to the high price of booking an additional night at the Marriot Courtyard (wanted £25 for one night's parking) and were amazed. The reception had a welcoming (fake) log fire burning which seemed to set the standard. I explained to the Richard on... More

It comes as a bit of a shock when you return from holiday to find the hotel has closed down as the company has gone into liquidation!There really is little else to say except that a little advance warning would have been nice.

This was a great start to our holiday, checked our cases in at the airport, then had a nice meal in the pub attached to the hotel, a good nights sleep and a short ride to the airport for our flight to Orlando. The room was quite small but nice and warm and clean and perfect for our needs.
