“Rooms good size some cleaners should be fired!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

The hotel itself has been a mixed bag the reception staff that greeted us have been warm and friendly the entire week, ive been happy with what i have paid for in general, the food is decent to good not enjoyed the bacon in the mornings or the eggs not cooked in a standard way and are as chewy as a cereal bar.. the dinners in the evening have been much better and are literally all you can eat and great value, the hotel is a bit minty in some areas some cleaners are lazy there is not a shred of doubt about this as i have pointed out a sweet necklace had been trodden in the hall yesterday direct to the cleaners and it was still there today.. it took 3 complaints to the staff to get my room cleaned .. today they knocked the door and asked if i wanted it cleaned as they realised i will not take the room being dirty. Place could do with a lick of paint and new carpets the restaurant area is clean and modern. Lovely swimming pool and spa/ sauna facilities have enjoyed using these a lot this place could be a great hotel if some investment was put into it, Can be loud, a wedding happened here over the weekend and that was not very pleasant yesterday it was quiet and warm and met some great friendly people... major problem here for me has been that the free wifi has not been connectable in my room, i have had to come down to the lobby each time i need to use the net.

Room Tip: Dont choose smoking side

I stayed at this hotel on the 21st July 2013, with my family.
The rooms smelt damp, it's also unclean, hair in the bath, toothpaste in the sink, with a broken bed
We left our car in their car park, only to find it had been scratched when we returned...I complained to the manager, but he did not care and said go to the police. Avoid this hotel at all costs.

Room Tip: Our friends stayed at the Hilton in Gatwick for the same price.

This isn't a hotel! It should be shut down! Wish we never booked! Rooms are awful! They provide what they think is a bed?? More like a vertical drop bed! Feels like your sleeping on a hard floor! We had to get up for our flight 1:30am! With 2 kids and was exhausted! Dirty and horrible! Hated every minute! We complained on check out and an email will be sent to the manager! Discussing place!

We stayed 14th July for one night, taking advantage of the park and fly offer. There was 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 children. Room was adequate for our needs, clean and plenty of towels, extra pillows ect. Food was good, transfer service to airport and back was good, car remained safe, finding a space when we first arrived wasn't an issue at all, there was plenty of spaces at 2pm and also going into the evening. Overall for the price we paid it suited our needs for an overnight stay and we would recommend this hotel for the park and fly option.

Dated, smelly and rooms were not clean. When we saw chips were being served at the breakfast buffet that said it all. The rest of the breakfast food was not good.
I would suggest you avoid this hotel. It is in need of complete re-modernisation.

We arrived on a coach with national holidays when we got outside it was shockingly horrible.

we got our key and the corridors to the room where dirty and ripped this was shockingly horrible.

we get to our room open the door and it was very dirty could use a really good clean it was shockingly horrible.

we had breakfast the next morning where we heard a staff member shouting at a child of about 5 because she was running around the dinning room acting like children do staff attitude shockingly horrible.

the breakfast itself was actually very good and enjoyable but that was the only positive thing about this place.

over all it was shockingly horrible

Room Tip: Just don't go here safe your money and go somewhere nice may I suggest the north pole instead o...

We were staying over so we didn't have to get up so early in the morning, well that was a joke! we managed to sleep till about 12.30 to be woken up by a bunch of foreign students blundering through the corridor slamming doors chatting & singing with no consideration for other people trying to sleep, this was happening every 15 to 20 min they were going out to smoke which some were right outside our window . What I'm more astonished at, is that who ever was on night shift did not come out of the office which was only a few yards away & ask for them to be quiet at any time. It finally stopped at 2.45 which we had to be up at 3.30. NOT HAPPY AT ALL! Some of the family were staying in rooms upstairs on the other side of the hotel & their room's were boiling, the Windows only opened a small amount.

Room Tip: Down stays room when weather is hot.unless you have foreign students that want to smoke every 15 min...

Thank you for your comments. We were sorry you were disturbed by other guests whilst here. Unfortunately the desk cannot be left unattended at any time. However, if we had been alerted to the disturbance we would have sent somebody to resolve the problem for you.
