I stayed down at this hotel as I know they're always reasonable quality and reliable, but to be honest the spec on the new rooms was a lot higher than I expected. Nice big flat screen TV, useable storage etc, a much nicer than expected bed and soft and hard pillows. Couldn't have been better. The staff were helpful and friendly too. Anyway, hotels around Crawley are notorious for bad sleep, but with the windows and curtains there was barely any noise and I went out like a baby - much like my opponents at the jiu jitsu tournement I was competing in the next day.
Breakfast looked good - all laid on with coffee, juice, scrambled eggs looked great but sadly I couldn't tuck in - had to watch my weight. Oh well, there's always next time...
Will definitely be my first choice hotel next time I have to stay in that area or travel down to Brighton...
