                Good Location for airport and well priced

                Room 334 is awful, opposite a general storage room so from 06.00 all you hear is the door slamming for 2 hours and staff chatting away. I rang reception and nothing happened disappointed. Stayed for two nights wouldnt stay again

                Inexpensive hotel. Convenient for Gatwick or local business. Good facilities

                Expensive breakfast

                The hotel, is somewhat tired and needs some updating. The first room we where given, was not as advertised and smelled very damp, as did the whole section of the hotel. The second room which given and matched the details as advertised also had an odour.

                We have stayed at this hotel on several occasions the night before flying out of Gatwick. It is a very comfortable, reasonablly priced hotel, and the Library Bar is a great feature. Once again a good nights stay at a great price

                Unfortunately this time, we were unable to use the Brasserie as it had a private function. But the restaurant was very good, although more expensive.

              • Older travelers

                Location is perfect, five minutes drive to the airport (gatwick). Nice outside area.

                First night in classic room on the first (second American) floor was a disaster. The strong smell of chemically treated wood was unbearable and caused headaches and nausea. The quality of the room was far below expected standards. We were feeling poisoned for the rest of the next day. It was like in the chemical warfare zone. I am still not sure what consequences will it insue to our health. The staff was accomodating and for the next night we were given a better room with no smell after complaining.

                Location and bus link to Gatwick

                The room we were allocated was a bit dated and required a sprucing up.

              • Older travelers
                6.2

                Location was ideal for visiting family. Also good access to getting to Brighton - 30mins in car.

                When we arrived we were offered an upgrade to a Club Room for £20 extra a night. This was a room with Jacuzzi, Bath Robes and access to the Club Lounge. Room and other stuff were fine but the Jacuzzi bath was filthy!! It had a scum line around it and had clearly not been cleaned. As a result the bath was not used all weekend, we did shower!! But just put you off!! When I spoke to Reception about it there was little reaction other than it got cleaned. I still got charge the upgrade price

                helpful and friendly reception staff

                transport to and from airport : not clear that transport to airport was paid for and supplied by another company and 24 hour service from airport would be appreciated - even if there was an additional charge.

                Really handy to stay the night before a morning pick up of my husband from gatwick. Comfortable, very clean room. Free use of LA fitness gym and pool. The gym could do with smartening up a bit but the staff were very helpful , which made up for it. Lovely steam room. Also , after pick up, very handy for getting straight out int the kent countryside for a walk. Good value for money.

                bath was very short, but then I am six foot one.

              • Single
                6.0

                The price and the nice warm country feel,

                The rate was reasonable ,but I think it was over rated as a four star, as its could really do with a refurbish. My shower was but a dribble and the loo broke (would not flush). But to be fair when I complained they gave me a nother room and chucked in a free breakfast. They were a friendly staff trying to make it all work ,but hit with the ressision.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                As usual a good service all round, have stayed several times here before,staff good at dealing with the public , a very nice place to stay before a long haul flight.

                Menus in the bar could be more variety, outside of building looking a bit tatty now tlc needed.

              • Older travelers
                5.0

                Staff were quite rude and abrupt. Did not like having to pay £5 for parking. There was not hut tub/jacquzzi in the health centre like the pictures show on the website.

              • Single
                8.2

                It was very well located for a business meeting, the staff were efficient and the room was excellent.

                The car park barrier did not work and I did not see the button to press so had to return to the reception desk.

                Everyone was very welcoming and helpful many thanks for a lovely stay

                It was a nice hotel, good facilities.

                Check in and check out took about 15 minutes to complete. My toilet was very clean, except for the big black beetle that I found walking around in the toilet in the morning!
