This was our second stay at this hotel as, like last time, we had a morning flight out of Gatwick and wanted to make our trip as relaxed and stress-free as possible.
Check-in was not quite as straightforward as it might have been. When we arrived the two reception staff were dealing with other guests and there was someone else waiting to see them too. The self service-check in machines could not identify our booking by either name, reference number or credit card - presumably as we had been 'pre-checked in' prior to arrival as a result of our prior online payment. This meant that we had to wait a while to see a receptionist to collect our keycards rather than being able to serve ourselves at the machine which was not ideal.
The room was the standard 'copy and paste' Premier Inn room and, as usual, it was spotlessly clean with a large comfortable bed.
We ate at the in-house Thyme restaurant and, although they appeared to have no record of our reservation (made online at time of booking), they were able to accomodate us quite easily. Service was a little slow but the food was delicious and well worth the wait - pretty good value too!
In the morning we left to drive down to Airparks parking which is very convenient, being only just over 5 minutes away.
As the title says, it was another good stay - and I'm sure we'll be back again at some point in the future
