This is a very good hotel if you need to stay at Gatwick prior to an early morning flight - as we did.
The staff are friendly, helpful and, unlike so many hotels, seem genuinely pleased to see you.
The rooms are pleasantly furnished with large comfy beds, while the bathrooms are brightly lit and have decent sized baths with lots of piping hot water (other hotels please note - a bathroom must have a bath, at least in my book!)
Our only criticism was that the restaurant does not open until 18.30 and we wanted to eat before then so we ate elsewhere (see separate review of the Globe restaurant). There is a menu of snacks in the bar but the selection seemed limited and there was nothing that we really fancied.
Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay and would happily stay there again
