“clean, modern and efficient. Just what you need before catching a flight from Gatwick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

A modern hotel right next to Gatwick south terminal competively priced. Couldn't hear the planes even though the airport was just yards away. The king size room was smart, clean and with everything you could want; a pleasure to stay in. We didn't have breakfast but we did have an evening bar meal which was excellent and well priced. There is also a restaurant on site. Staff were organised and efficient. Check in and out was fast and geared up for people travelling. We took a taxi, organised by the hotel, as the quickest way to and from the airport terminal. It was just a couple of pounds dearer than the bus and well worth it. Our car, booked in to the hotel parking, was ready and waiting for us on our return. I would definately use this hotel again even if I was departing from the north terminal.Good to find a hotel with parking deal whose hotel was so good our holiday started right here.

This hotel is excellent for a pre nights stay prior to a flight. Just what it was designed to do.
Location is walking distance to the South Terminal, may be an issue if you have cases, but there is always the £4 (pp each way) coach. Worth organising a taxi if you have a family.
Rooms were good, clean and of reasonable size. But I wish inexpensive fittings were not used in the bathroom, plastic toilet seats never stay on !! And no towel rails. Having said that for one night one should cope.
Clearly they have a captive audience regarding food and drink, and at the time of writing a buffet breakfast will set you back £15 pp, not good if you just want a coffee and cereal, so fill up before the flight !
All in all not a bad hotel, service was good, the place was clean, location ok and a bit pricy for extras but what should I expect.

This hotel is right next to the airport and really handy if your departure is early and arrival very late. It is clean and functional. It's also very busy, with most of the people just stopping the night. A bit impersonal behind the desk - the receptionist on the desk early morning and late night doesn't even reply to a greeting. Having said that, the staff when leaving late morning were very friendly.
I had a great deal on the initial night stay and 6 day parking, but found the return stay was the same cost as 1 night and parking. We prepaid for the 2 course buffet type meal on arrival. You help yourself, which I wasn't too sure about but the quality was top notch ( I loved the roast veg).

Stayed at this hotel the day before our flight and upon returning from holiday. Our package included car parking which is handled by Manor Parking who remove your car to a secure park and return it when you land, which was all done very efficiently.
The hotel is very modern with great spacious rooms and very efficient staff.
Unable to comment on the food as we didn't eat in the hotel, but breakfast is the normal overpriced event at £14.95 (try Tesco down the road !).
I can definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for a reasonably priced hotel for an airport stay.
