My boyfriend and myself stayed here prior to an early flight. We paid £39.
When you first walk in, it looks very oldly worldly, which was quite sweet, but when we checked in we were asked if we wanted a smoking room. As we do smoke we thought - why not?! Apparently because the owner also owns the land, he is exempt from the smoking laws in England...?
Oh god, as soon as you walk into the hallway where the smoking rooms are situated it absolutely reeked, and not just of normal legal substances...We dumped our bags and went for dinner and a few drinks in the bar. 2 Portions of fish and chips and 2 beers cost us £20. The meal was tiny and poor quality.
The room had stained, damaged walls. The bath tub could have done with a thorough scrub, or replacement. As we had to get up so early, we just ate, then went straight to sleep as couldn't be bothered with the hassle of changing rooms.
Driving distance to Gatwick in 10 minutes.
Wouldn't stay here again, stayed in the Travelodge previously which was much better quality. Can't comment on the swimming pool as did not use it. The grounds are substantive and very green, but we bumped into a local couple who were using it as a naughty night out, but had our suspicions that the female was charging for her services!
There are bargains to be had around Gatwick, not in this instance. I'd recommend the Travelodge or Premier Inn, or even the Hilton when they have a sale on.
