Holiday Inn Express London Gatwick-Crawley

Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Gatwick-Crawley just for one night taking some friends back to Gatwick airport. It was a very nice and clean hotel, the breakfast was very good also. Nearby there was a Harvester pub/restaurant which was great, it was a good end to our friends holiday.

Reasonably priced clean room and hotel with functional (for short stay) modern decor and furnishings.
Bed was not very comfortable.
Noisy neighbours didn't help but my experience is that that can be a lottery in any hotel.
Adequate breakfast provision, no Michellin stars but did the job. Good location for our purposes.
Staff were pleasant and professional.

We stayed here before taking an early morning flight from Gatwick and it was perfect - clean, comfortable beds, good value, really easy to check in and out with no fuss, good bathroom facilities. Also it was a 10 minute shuttle bus journey to the airport which was ideal.

However I was really impressed with the service I received upon leaving: a few days later, I realised I had left my pyjamas in the room. I was abroad so simply emailed them and, they posted them to my home address without any fuss or charge. This was great customer service and I'd like to express my gratitude.

I have stayed at Holiday Inn many times in the past but this was so far the worst ever stay that has compelled me to write a review. I stayed with my family for 2 nights during May bank holiday and the service I received was terrible. In the room for example, both soft and hard pillows were the same which suggested they ran out of pillows. The soap dispenser for the shower was broken and this simple thing was not fixed during my stay. However the worst experience I have had was the breakfast. The hotel did not have enough trays (may be 4 or 5 only). The lucky people who got the trays weren’t able to find anywhere to leave them after the breakfast. This was made worse by the hotel staff not clearing up and resulted in some tables being used as skip where people left huge pile of plates, cups and leftovers! This hotel has limited space in the breakfast area so I had to clear up the tables to make space for my family. By the way they do ran out of some items such as butter, nutella, juice, fresh fruits, coffee/hot drinks (only few mugs are available so you will be lucky to have one during busy periods). The kitchen staff on the other hand was not very efficient in replacing the cooked items either on time. This was the situation at 8.30pm in the morning on both mornings during my stay.

This may be a good hotel but from what I’ve seen is that the staff is unable to cope with the busy periods and maintain standards.

Dear Aliaqat,

Thank you taking the time to review your stay at Holiday Inn Express Gatwick-Crawley.

I am extremely disappointed and saddened to hear about your experience and I would like to apologise for the issues you have raised. Customer service is of the upmost importance to myself and the team and your feedback regarding your experience is clearly this not the standard that our hotel aims to provide for our guests.

Our complimentary express start breakfast should be fully stocked and available to all guests during breakfast times and I will be working with our breakfast team to make sure that such an occurrence does not happen again.

With that being said, If you could kindly contact me directly at the hotel on deputygm@hiexpresscrawley.co.uk so I can discuss your feedback in more detail and have the opportunity to fully restore your confidence in us.

Please accept my sincerest apologies and I hope to hear from you in due course.
Kind Regards,


Katie Kitapci
Deputy General Manager

Having spent two separate nights at this hotel during a long weekend holiday, am pleased to report a good experience with friendly staff, easy transfers to LGW, good car parking etc
The breakfast is standard Express, and the rooms are undergoing refurbishment, all the ground floor 100's seem to be done. Second floor rooms not so good, and fire doors can be noisy, but everything else worked well.

Room Tip: 100 series rooms have been refurbished

Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, free wifi and free cooked breakfast available made this a pleasant hotel to stay in. The area was approx 10 mins walk from Crawley centre, so nice and quiet for a good nights sleep as well as only a short distance from LGW.
