I've stayed here a few times before an early flight from Gatwick. It's a great location as it's right on the airport. I've had only hand luggage a couple of times and have walked to the South terminal in about five minutes. Off season you can get a really good deal for an overnight stay and a week's parking - the car is taken off site but brought back to the hotel by the time you return. Dinner was a bit run-of-the-mill but quite acceptable.
