We didn't use the buffet breakfast as we had a 3.30am start but it was available. Note that there... More

Nice little hotel to stay before early morning flight to Gatwick. 15-20mins away. Plenty of parking at the charge of 7£ a day. Room was nice. Very clean. Breakfast was very standard and in the reception area. Would of been nice to of been in separate room. But no complaints.

I Found The Hotel Very Welcoming And Easy To Check In. I Used It As I Was Flying From Gatwick. It Is Very Easy To Park And Get A Taxi From The Hotel. There Is A Harvester Next Door As Food Is Limited. Rooms Are Clean And Tidy.
