We stayed here over a weekend in mid-November 2013. We flew into London Gatwick and the Hotel was well priced and placed as an alternative to staying in the city if you are flying in and out of Gatwick. There are many Premier Inns in the area and I couldn't tell you which one is any better than another. This is the third Premier Inn I have stayed in and the first in the UK (others in Dubai) and it seems they are all pretty much the same. Reasonable standards, well priced and the restaurants have good food. Most of the other reviews are on the money with a comfy room, middle of the road amenities and a good price point. I did like this particular property because it had more of a feel of a country manor (at least on the outside) than a cookie cutter hotel. The dinner and breakfast were of very good quality and portions large. We used Bus G6 from the Bus terminal in the South Terminal Que #9. It is 3 Pounds per person per trip. It took about 10 minutes from the S. Terminal to the Hotel. If you are flying or needing to leave at noon you will not have a bus run at this time so you will need to catch a Taxi and it is 8-10 Pounds per Taxi. The alternative is Bus 100 which is in front of the hotel but I have no idea the frequency that it runs of the price per person.
If you are doing a weekend in London and only want/need to go into the city once then staying here and using the Gatwick Express (about 20 Pounds per person per way) is a good option. If we would have needed to go into the city more than this, then staying at a hotel in the city is probably more economical. However, we were very satisfied and would come back and stay at this hotel. The staff, from the restaurant to the lobby were very friendly and accommodating.
