Small privately owned B&B guesthouse in walking distance of train station (if your luggage isn't too heavy!) and restaurants/shops etc. in Crawley centre.
Warm welcome by the owner. The rooms are fairly spacious and immaculate in décor and cleanliness. Fittings are of a high standard and befitting of a 4* hotel at least. The little extras such as hairdryer, tea & coffee with biscuits, bathroom toiletries etc. make this an excellent alternative to an overly priced Gatwick airport hotel if you need a night stop.
The breakfast buffet was plentiful with fresh fruit and great coffee, plus choice of breads, jams, cereals etc. etc.
My one very slight criticism was that my room was extremely hot (I stayed when the temp outside was about 28 degs!) and there is no air-con which wouldn't normally matter in Crawley - but due to the exceptional heat and the fact that I didn't feel comfortable opening the large window as I was on the ground floor I didn't actually get much sleep - in spite of the very comfortable bed.
Perhaps some fans could be made available at such times.
Over-all a really great place to stay and I will definitely be back.
