Stayed before our holiday for one night and stayed again when we returned as it was a late evening flight. First night we was in a box room with a skylight window. I thought it would be cosy but I soon became clostraphobic. I felt the need to open a window. The bed was rock hard. However the shower was...

The worst excuse for a hotel we have ever had the displeasure to stop in. First room wasn't fit to sleep an animal, complained and was moved to a slightly better room! We booked for 1 stay before and 1 after our trip to Norway. Didn't even bother going in to that hovel on the return, got in the car...

This is the only hotel I've woken up before my alarm and left an hr early for a flight because it was so bad. A busy airport is more comfortable and hygienic than this hole. We booked this last min for an early morning flight, arriving around midnight did not give us the opportunity to get out and check in...

Stayed here for an over night. The room was awful. The door was flimsy and went straight out to the drive - no security and the wall was a flimsy plaster wall. Add to that the noise of the runway and voila - Russ Hill! Complained and were shown the door. It was so bad we actually moved hotel even...

A nice hotel but budget once you get inside, evening meal was very average and wouldn't have again. Had to keep getting bar staff and chef from out the back didn't seem to want to serve anyone. Wouldn't go to hotel again even though it was reasonable priced.

We booked a family room for an overnight stay and will never come back again. Room was freezing cold with a tiny radiator which was ready to fall off the wall. Disgusting dirty carpets and smell overall was awful. Will never come again! Luckily it was only for 6 hours!

Outside the Russ Hill Hotel, I urged myself not to judge a book by its dilapidated cover. However, as I walked through the dated entrance hall past the plug in fire, a burgeoning sense of despair began to overwhelm me. This was just the tip of a very ugly Iceberg. Time came to check in..It seemed I was being punished...

Great Budget Hotel near Gatwick airport also offering long stay car parking. Quite noisy with planes taking off but ideal place to stay for an early flight. Room was clean and comfortable although a little dated and tired. They also offered smoking rooms.

The place is very dated. The room was very small and felt like a rabbit hutch. The bed was so uncomfortable and I barely got two hours sleep the whole night. The food wasn't too bad but basic and not much choice If u have the carvary. But In a positive sense the price for hotel and parking is good
