“Does what it says on the tin”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

If you want a reasonable hotel fairly close to Gatwick airport then this is certainly a reasonable hotel fairly close to Gatwick airport. Bit tired, bath leaked a bit but beds comfortable. Would return again only if I had another early flight.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on Trip Advisor. We are delighted we offered a comfortable nights sleep ahead of your early morning flight.
For your information we are re-branding in the new year as Sandman Signature ahead of a £5m refurbishment.

stayed there for a few nights. the overall hotel was good and clean. room where good and the gym was ok.
the hotel is isolated and in a bad location if you don't have a car. its far from city center, resturants and cafes.

Room Tip: bad location if you don't have a car

Thank you for your review, we are delighted you found the hotel comfortable.
We are located just 5 minutes taxi drive (20 minute walk) from the town centre which has a good mix of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Alternatively we have a 24 hour Tesco superstore next to the hotel that provides a good selection of provisions.
10 minutes walk is the Mainline Rail station of Three Bridges which will have you in central London or Brighton within 30 minutes.
We do hope to welcome you back to the hotel again in the future when our reception staff can help to arrange taxi's at specially negotiated rates for the hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed here the night before our holiday flying out to mexico.

We chose to stay here due to close location to the airport and reasonable price for stay and park for 15 days. We paid a bit extra and had the car dropped off to us at the airport to get us home a bit quicker. The car arrived quite quickly as we called when we collected our baggage.

The hotel room was lovely and clean, very comfy bed, nice tv. Will say that the doors are hard to manage with big heavy cases - but understand that they are needed as they are fire doors.

The reception staff were very kind and booked us a cheap taxi to a local pub (£5) and organised the taxi to drop us off at the airport in the morning (£8.50).
The morning taxi driver arrived promptly and got us to the airport safety.
I would recommend this hotel and will use again.
Thank you for a smooth start (and finish) to our holiday :-)

Pretty decent hotel , clean and comfortable but we had asked for a wake up call for 4am , after having been to thorpe Park and with an early flight we knew
getting up could be risky . However we did not get our wake up call and luckily I was awake then but very angry as this could have cost us our holiday , so
when I asked reception he said it was noted but there must be something wrong with the system !! Stay here but be double prepared for your call .

Please do accept our sincere apologies for failing to make your wake up call. We have very recently installed new systems and have addressed the issue of identifying Wake Up Calls as soon as we were made aware of the problem.
We hope you benefited from the new WiFi system also installed in the hotel that gives our guests free high speed wifi connection throughout the hotel.
Please do visit us again soon where you can experience further enhancements coming to the hotel.

Clean friendly and very good value, even the food is affordable given that airport hotels normally charge the earth.We would definately use again.
The only down side is the shuttle to the airport no longer operates from this hotel so it may be worth booking return taxi's in advance or through the hotel(they have good rates with some firms).

We are delighted you found the hotel good value. Thank you for pointing out advance booking the taxi. We have negotiated rates with the local taxi firm £8.60 one way to/from airport, a big saving on fares from taxi's on airport.

We checked in no problem and the member of staff was very helpful. We were given a ticket to pop on the dash board of a car for the 9 days parking we had booked and that's all there was to it. The room was very large, however it had a door to the room next door. It was only 5.30pm and we could hear raised voices and swearing, I went straight to reception to ask to swap rooms and reception could not have been more helpful. They switched our room without any questions. The food in the bar was lovely and well priced considering it is a hotel with no local competition for food. Drinks also were not too expensive apart from the bottle of ale. £6.50 for a bottle of Bombardier was a bit steep! The hotel booked us a taxi to Gatwick North and the cost was just £8.60. We forgot to book a taxi for our return, However I called the hotel from Gatwick and they gave me a taxi number so we could get the special rate again. Otherwise a taxi from the Gatwick taxi desk would have been £16.

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Ramada Plaza before going on a flight the next day. The rooms are comfortable and well soundproofed. We booked this time through APH and got a weeks parking included for a very reasonable £83, we were offered a 10% discount off food at the hotel. A good place to stay before an early departure from Gatwick Airport.
