Premier Inn London Gatwick Airport (A23 Airport Way) Hotel
Ranked #10 of 28 Hotels in Crawley
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I stay at many premier inns as you get good value for money and a very good breakfast. We did have a problem in the room where the bathroom smelt really badly of damp which meant the whole room smelt, along with a noisy fan that started up somewhere in the middle of the night. But, the staff were really great and dealt with it when referred to them
The breakfast was lovely, the kids always look forward to it and with kids eating for free, even better!

PARKING:
My only real issue with the hotel is that they now charge £10 to park your car, even if only for a few hours. This charge should be waived to guests and 1 night parking given for free.

Given the location (you can walk to Gatwick North) and price, I would recommend this.

Needed to stay for two nights near Gatwick due to flight times, after the Europa Hotel disaster last time I thought I would play it safe and stay at a Premier Inn as at least I know what standards to expect. or that's what I thought!!! I've stayed in enough Premier Inn's to be confident
of the service levels but for some reason this particular one has exceptional staff, I cannot explain as ever memeber of the staff were super friendly, from reception to bar staff to breakfast not one single member of staff delivered anything less than 5star levels of service? I cannot explain why this should be but as I was so quick to write a damning report about the Europa Gatwick then I thought it only fair to heap praise upon this stay. Well done 10/10

Arriving back from holiday on a delayed flight, we missed the last train from Gatwick. We found a web terminal and searched for hotels nearby. There are two Premier Inns very close to North Terminal, so we chose the one that was slightly cheaper. We discovered that it is slightly further away from North Terminal than the other, but still within easy walking distance.
We have stayed in Premier Inns before, so we were very happy to book it. We had a good welcome from the staff, even though it was after midnight, and they were very helpful. The room was very comfortable and we slept well.
Being close to Gatwick Airport, we did hear the planes the next morning, but we wanted to get up to catch a train, so that was not a problem.
The weather this Spring was very cold, but the room heater had been set fairly high, so the room was actually too warm. It cooled down, once we had reset the temperature.
The breakfast was good and the staff were helpful. The price was extra, so we chose Continental, although full English was also available, but at a higher price.

Just what you expect for a Premier Inn. An early flight from Gatwick necessitated staying at the airport. This hotel fits the bill. Comfortable & clean. The restaurant in this hotel is very good. The earlier reviews referring to the location are reasonable. The bus costs £3 each way. The right stop is found on the ground outside the South Terminal. You emerge from the terminal and go as far as you can to the left.

We stayed here for one night before departing on holiday. The self service check in didn't work but we were seen very promptly & efficiently. The room was basic but clean & excellent value and the location is just a few minutes from the check in desks. Would definitely use again.

Premier Inns are premier inns. Clean, comfortable, and good when you need a bed. This one was a well kept place that allowed us to stay the night and walk straight through to passport control at the North Terminal within ten minutes for our early morning flight, thus avoiding the need to get up at 3am to drive, park, and transfer. We had been able to check in the day before being on a package holiday with a big holiday company. The price was cheaper than parking and we were able to use the train - cheaper than petrol booked in advance, quicker than the car, and more environmentally friendly. The one thing I was concerned about was airport noise. I didn't hear a single plane. We ate in the restaurant which was a standard pub/ hotel menu but fine for a night at an airport. The staff were friendly and helpful. An altogether more civilised start to our holiday. Just check which Premier Inn you are staying at. There is more than one, and we got the wrong one initially.

I was attending a wedding in Las Vegas with a friend and we stayed the night before flying out at the Premier Inn at Gatwick Airport North. We were able to check in our luggage the night before and then literally walk two minutes across the road to the Premier Inn. The book in team were extremely helpful and friendly. Booking in took all of 3minutes before we were in a lovely room with two large double beds. It was very clean with tea/coffee facilities, clean bathroom and large television. Breakfast was very good and reasonably priced. We then strolled across the road to the airport. It was the height of luxury and convenience and an experience I would recommend to anyone flying from Gatwick North Terminal. Well done Premier Inn.
