This hotel has mixed reviews but we thought it was fabulous. We were a little disappointed at first because as we were 2 adult daughters travelling with a 92 yr old mother we needed a ground floor room which the original centuries old building does not have. Instead we had a HUGE family room with 3 beds and windows on two sides and plenty of room for the large amount of luggage we had travelled with on the Queen Mary. This hotel is a few short stops from Victoria Station and a quick cab from Gatwick and as it is on the High Street...right in the middle of shops, restaurants and two of the days we were there a farmer's market in the square. It was a very very short walk to the "shopping area " including M & S and Debenhams. I also had a chance to revisit a delightful bakery remembered from a previous trip.
Next time in England we'll reverse the stay and book here and travel into London by train as you get far more bang for your GBP than in the big city.
Crawley itself is a sweet town and has some of everything. The people are wonderful and love to do more than expected for their visitors. The area is full of history and the great old buildings are respected and cared for.
This hotel was linked by underground tunnel to a pub on the other side of the square and originally it was were the judges stayed when trying the days "bad guys". They would bring the prisoners over from the room above the pub through the tunnel to stand trial. Those whose punishment was death were hanged on the yardarm which still stands outside the hotel!
This is not the most elegant of hotels but that wasn't what we were looking for, instead we had a lovely big family room with tons of light and room as if we were staying with friends.
