We have stayed at the Gatwick Moathouse on a number of occasions now due to its convenient location if you have an early morning flight from the airport.
We began staying there due to the covered multi-storey car park they have, having had the misfortune to be snowed in on a previous stay at the nearby Holiday Inn. The park and stay deals are also reasonably priced with this trip costing us £79 including 8 nights parking.
That is the most outstanding aspect of the hotel, apart from the parking it is a moderately priced average quality hotel. Bedrooms are a reasonable size, comfortable with an improved range of freeview tv stations to previous stays. There are also always towels made into cute swans left on your bed. Heating was poor on this occasion, and did not seem to work very effectively at all.
Wi-fi Internet is free and can be used in your bedroom. You will need an Internet voucher for each device you wish to use ie laptop, iPhone.
There is a bar, a restaurant and room service, a little lower than typical airport prices, but still dear in our view. Didnt use on this trip but have done previously - quality is fine.
Staff are friendly and usually keen to go the extra mile for you, helpful and smiley !
There is a shuttle bus to both terminals for £3 each, each way. If you are going to the north terminal allow a little longer as it visits the south terminal first. There is a bit of a trek when you get off the shuttle to walk into the terminal building. Was told by the receptionist at the hotel that morning that you can book a taxi for £6 for two of you, so that may be worth considering.
Nearly forgot, when first travelling to the hotel, be careful you do not miss the entrance, which is kind of hidden between the garage and the fire station, just off of Longbridge roundabout.
The garage is also worth bearing in mind if you just fancy a cold snack and a bottle of wine in your room, cheaper than the hotel at around £6/8 per bottle.
So overall, would recommend for anyone who is looking for a decent, averagely priced hotel when travelling.
