Needed an hotel with rooms for 4 and Outlet hotels coughed up this Days hotel as the most affordable. I like a good deal. We arrived and I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the service received from the staff, compared to the reviews I had read. The hotel was reasonably close to the gatwick airport.The room was nice and clean and spacious for us 4. I must say that I experienced the damp murky smell on entry to the room. That was fixed by opening the window for a shortwhile. Every day, after the room was cleaned and we got back it had the same smell.
I advised the reception to get the cleaners to air the room after cleaning. He wasn´t a good listener and was a bit defensive. Otherwise, all requests were swiftly responded to and handled in a helpful manner. The room had beds and a nice table but no chair. i requested one and that was arranged.
I learned that we had to re+activate the keycard on a daily basis. Parking was free! A shuttle to the airport was available for 5 pounds per person. It had a restaurant for breakfast and an Indian restaurant (which we did not use). There was a fish an chips place about 5 mins drive away and a pub that served food from 12.
We stayed for 4 days and it was okay. The free WIFI was nice and of a decent speed. While it was good value for money if booked ahead, there is room for improvement.
