Booked at a great price and close as a stones throw from Gatwick Airport, this was a steal for 85 quid. Arrival and check in at the desk was a little longer than we'd expected, but everything else was good, staff were pleasant and helpful.
We went to our room and found it was spacious, clean and tidy. The bathroom was also big with plenty of hot water and an easy to use shower. An ice machine just outside the lifts was also handy to keep some drinks cold.
The dinner menu was perused and meals of larger size arrived and were all well received and tasty. The meal prices were probably a few quid more each than we'd been paying but for the sake of not having to go out and drive again, it was an easy choice.
The sleep quality was fantastic, I wish we'd had beds this good on our whole tour and soft pillows rather than some we've encountered.
Breakfast was great, full English breakfast or all your continental choices and as much or as little as you like all included in the price of the room.
Wi-Fi charges were the only thing I found rudely expensive at 14 quid, but we received complimentary access due to our wait at reception.
I was expecting noise and vibration from jets due to the airport being so close, but I only heard aircraft when I was outside, nothing from inside at all.
Would I stay here again? Not a problem - if you're flying out of Gatwick and get the same price room and breakfast deal, it's not hard to be at this hotel.
