“Walking distance to Gatwick North Terminal”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

We have stayed here a couple of times and always found this hotel to be clean, good food and friendly staff. We no longer bother to use the transfer bus as it is only just over a 5 minute walk to the North Terminal. There is a closer Premier Inn that has recently opened but this was more expensive at the time of booking. We would book again.

This was our (my wife and I) first stay at the Longbridge Way Premier Inn for a one nights stay taking advantage of the Sleep, Park and Fly package deal. It was easy to find of course because of heading to London Gatwick but there is a big Premier Inn as you enter the North terminal which is deceiving. This hotel is smaller and 5 more minutes up the road. The Park/Fly part was also an added stress factor as it took half an hour in the morning due to parking you car - I was hoping to leave the car at the hotel but this wasn't an option and the hotel did not offer a service like meet and greet. The hotel was warm and the room clean and bed comfortable. Noise was a problem from guests staying in rooms, i.e. above and next-door. The shuttle bus was regular as we could hear this just outside our room. There is no noise from airplanes though. Breakfast was adequate to set you off for the day and this opened at 4am. There was plenty of choice. I thought the whole package was a bit steep, we paid £104.68, but having said that I would probably stay over the night before a flight again. I would recommend this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel in March on business to save me needing to travel early to get to the airport the next day and the hotel is good.

It is obviously a Premier Inn and not the most modern and updated one I have ever stayed at, but it is clean, the service was great and the location (if you need to be at Gatwick Airport) is great.

My room was clean and tidy, again not the most updated, but certainly fine for the price I paid (about £70 which I thought was amazing considering its almost in the airport). Surprisingly I had a really good nights sleep considering how close it is to the runway, I don't think I actually heard one plane.

The car park was a good size, not too cheap (£10 for 24 hours), but I guess it could have been worse.

I didn't eat on the hotel on the evening I arrived but did have breakfast there in the morning and it was fine, as expected really. The waitress that showed me to my table was a bit miserable, but she did show me where everything was etc.....and it was early in the morning (it was about 6am, but breakfast actually starts at 4:30 am!!) so I understand that.

Generally though I have no complaints about this hotel and if you need to jet off early in the morning it is worth the money to stay here.

The reception was cramped and busy when I arrived. Dinner was also being served in the dining area adjacent to the reception. So it felt to be claustrophobic and noisy. However the reception staff were friendly and relatively efficient (see below), and moved me to a different room from the disabled room reserved by Booking.com. The room was a long way from reception and through several fire doors, one of which required the room key card to open (entering but not exiting).

Car parking cost £10 per night, and the person on reception advised me that I could buy a ticket at a machine outside. However I could not get this machine to work so I asked the reception for assistance and they issued a ticket. So it would have been more convenient if they had done that when I checked in!!

On entering the room it was clean and a reasonable space for one person. There was tea and coffee. Somebody walking around upstairs made the floor creak, but this soon ceased. In the bathroom there was just liquid soap and no shampoo, etc. The room was facing the car park and north terminal, but I was not disturbed by traffic or aircraft.

In the morning, the breakfast was quick and efficient with a reasonable choice of food. The waitress explained what was available.

Check-out was quick and uneventful.

There is another Premier Inn right at the North Terminal which is in walking distance from the North terminal.

Room Tip: On the ground floor, the floors creak when people are walking upstairs. So try not to get a room on...

An overall good stay, dinner was nice with several choices on the menu although none for vegans unless you eat soy. The room was respectable, but nothing special.
The reason I am giving this an average rating is because I booked a family room assuming it was with an interconnecting door for a separate room for a child to sleep in without being disturbed by parents. When I mentioned it to reception they did say that it is best to check with the hotel directly as not all Premier Inns have this type of room, and family rooms just meant larger to fit an extra single bed for a child.
Shame.

It is a standard premier inn that is very close to the north terminal but equally serve the south terminal due to the train link. The bonus is that breakfast starts at 4am (continental) and 4.30am (ful English), which is great if you have an early flight. Nice staff who helped me pick a quiet room. Comfortable bed and clean room. Just what you need when you flight is very early. I would probably pick this premier inn over the one that is right next to the terminal as this one is set a bit back from the road so you aren't disturbed by road noise. In contrast the one by teh terminal is surrounded on all sides and I can imagine the road noise is louder.
