The drive to the hotel is grand and makes you feel you've made a good choice but once you've stepped into reception you feel you've stepped into a giant indian restaurant.
The corridors are a trip back to the 80's and as for the rooms : Artex ceilings, peach bathroom, brass light fittings. You get the feel. But we had the added bonus of a McDonalds bag in our room; some suspicious stains on the ceiling, a sag in the middle bed; nice bit of white painted plywood holding up the bathroom extract fan.
To say the hotel is in need of a refurbishment is an under statement. Apart from the above:
1. No wifi except in reception
2. Breakfast £14!!
3. The shuttle to Gatwick is £4 a person so a family is probably cheaper getting a taxi.
The staff are reasonably polite but unfortunately, are tired and indifferent due the tiredness of the hotel.
Not a 4 star hotel.
