“Perfect for the price”
Reviewed October 20, 2011

Paid £49 for a one night stay on 30th Sep before a flight from Gatwick. Like many other chain hotels, you generally know what you are going to get, and this place didn't go against the grain.

Despite requesting a double room, we got a twin room - not a huge deal. Room was functional and clean, however (and one thing I can never work out), why aren't there more plug sockets around the bed - people like to charge phones, laptops etc whilst having access in bed.

We didn't eat at the hotel, service at the bar was ok, but the lager tasted stale. Parking was quite expensive, however I guess that's to be expected when so close to an airport.

Check in / out was fine without any hassles. In summary, I'd stay again if a similar price was available.

Directions to the hotel was spot on. Check was fast. No problem finding a place to park. We were however placed in a disabled room on the ground floor. Got backache from using the sink as it was set so low down for wheel chair users, and dangling feet from using the toilet which was so high up. The room was bright clean and airy, with windows that could open. We would have considered changing the room if we were staying longer than one night. The bar area and restuarant looked large and comfy, however we didnt eat in the resturant. There is a Petrol station next door, good for bottles of water etc. We followed the road across the roundabout leading to Horley Town Centre , but decided to eat at one of the many Guest Houses along the way. Prices were much more reasonable, especially the alcohol. Tickets for the shuttle buses are issued on arival and cost £3 each way per person. The shuttle buses were very frequent with plenty of room. We had a good night sleep and was well rested for our flight the following morning. We are happy to have choosen the Holiday Inn and will consider staying there again,but maybe not in a ground floor room.

Room Tip: Do not ask for a ground floor room.

We were on the ground floor near far end,as soon as we walked through last fire door it smelt of damp,on entering our room it still smelt of damp,so window had to be left open. Food and drink was expensive,service not that good as took 20 mins to get drinks and we were the only ones being served.

Stayed the night before flying to Florida. Kids are 17 &. 15. Got a family room & fibbed about the ages. Checked in no questions asked. Functional rooms. Eat before you get there though as the food is as expensive as you would expect.

We booked this hotel as we had an early morning flight at Gatwick and i have to say it was a really good hotel, better than i expected. As you enter the lobby you could tell straight away that it was a clean, modern hotel. We arrived at about 9.30, there was plenty of helpful staff waiting to check us in. Once we had checked in we went to our room which was very clean & just want you would want/need in an airport hotel. The bar was quite nice although we didnt spend much time there. One other cool facility that they had was the phone charger tower, which was brilliant as i left my charger in the cases we had dropped off! There is only a few minor things that let the hotel down a little bit (hence the 'very good' & not 'excellent') which was the pull out bed was really uncomfortable and could have done with a new mattress & the TV signal wasnt very good, Other than that it was brill & we would defo stay again :)

The room was spotless, the receptionist who checked us in, lovely, but when we got to our double room, we only had one bath towel, and on the tea/coffee making, no milk, so on our way down to dinner, we asked another receptionist if we could please have towel missing as we both wanted a bath, and said about the milk, this was 8pm yesterday, we checked out this morning, and nothing, after having rang and said, and waited.
dinner downstairs was very good, especially a young lad, who served us, should have got his named, because its people like this that make all the difference.
Also we enquired about courtesy bus to airport, but had to pay 6 pounds!

If you are flying in/out of Gatwick Airport (London), consider the Holiday Inn. We booked a room on Hotwire for about $60 (U.S.) and were pleased with our stay. The hotel is easily reached via rental car or on the shuttle (costs a few pounds) from the airport. The presence of a gas station with mini mart a block away from the hotel translates to access to a limited amount of reasonably priced items (beer, wine, snacks). The hotel has a fairly lively bar/restaurant with a decent selection of beers/ales at decent prices. The room was pleasant - not overly spacious, but well furnished with a good LCD TV. Internet was available, but at a fairly steep price. Parking was about 10 pounds.

NEARBY: Half Moon Pub

If you have a rental car, strongly consider a two mile (4 minute) drive to the nearby village of Charlwood (take an immediate right when exiting the hotel parking lot) and stay on that winding road until you reach Charlwood. The Half Moon's manager (John) welcomes you to this classic pub/restaurant housed in centuries old building. The beer/ale selection is not vast, but John will allow you to sample the taps until you find the one you like. The pub is well appointed and has a restaurant section in the rear as well as a outdoor, enclosed terrace for those who prefer the fresh air or to sit outside for a smoke. The dining selections are excellent and reasonably priced. And, to top it off, John has free WIFI - you'll pay for half of your bill at the pub by using the free WIFI rather than logging on at the hotel!

We had a very pleasant evening at the pub, and then returned to the comfort of our room at the Holiday Inn before heading to Gatwick airport for our flight to Croatia.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the rear of the hotel - to avoid highway noise and the frequent arrival/departure...
