I stayed at this hotel on a Saturday evening. On arrival the hotel looked like an old country house with, unfortunately acres of grounds covered in tarmac and given over to airport parking. I thought this was a shame as it was along a quiet country road. I booked in and was given a key to a room on the... More

We stayed at the russ hill hotel for 3 night whilst working in london. The hotel is extremely out dated and has absolutely zero atmosphere. The room we had was absolutely horrendous. We had one tiny window, which couldnt open fully because there was a huge white wall about 12 inches from the window. If you get a key with... More

My son likened Russ Hill to Fawlty Towers but without the laughs. The beds were absolutely appalling, the springs actually protruded from the mattress causing much discomfort until I laid the duvet over the mattress before laying again on it. The food in the restaurant was inedible, it was inedible... such a bad to start to our holiday. Thankfully on... More

The hotel was extremely dated, lacking in any kind of atmosphere or appeal. The menu showed food served all day, however we tried to order food at 5pm to be told they did not serve until 6pm. We got back from a wedding at 10.30 to find the bar closed and the lights beinf turned off. Breakfast was swimming in... More

We stayed at the hotel for two nights, the first room we were put in had a broken shower so we were moved, this was dealt with quickly. We had breakfast in the restaurant one morning which was OK but the staff working were quite rude and packed up around us as we were eating. We also ate in the... More

Stayed for one night as part of a National Holidays trip to Legoland , it took us 2.5 hrs to get here from legoland due to traffic and a road accident (driver said it would take aprox 1.5). First thing that hit me in reception was a smell of damp. Room was very small and dated (think early 80s b... More

This Hotel is dated but OK for one nights stay. Our room was clean very small and very hot. Buffet dinner and breakfast OK for the price. They do not charge for one night parking. Would stay again as close to Gatwick Airport.

Hotel has a very relaxed feel. They have a bar area with a small TV. Breakfast is buffet so eat as much as you can handle though the standard of the food is as expected. Dinner is also buffet. Pillows are like bricks they hid good ones in cupboard.

We booked this hotel purely because they have smoking rooms and you can park up without fuss before having a meet and greet at the Airport. This hotel is 10 mins from the airport, and is perfect for travellers. We booked a smoking room here for only £45 but when we got there they gave us a non smoking room,... More
