We stayed at this hotel the night before our early morning flight from Gatwick to Innsbruck. It was chosen mainly because of its alleged proximity to the airport. "Near" is not near!!! I was unable to get an answer from the hotel when I rang from south terminal (I came on the Gatwick Express) to enquire about the hotel shuttle, so I had to get a taxi. £16 later, we arrived at the hotel. On first appearances, it looks OK, and the receptionist was helpful and friendly, and the room was clean enough, The balcony, however, was filthy! I know we'd had recent heavy rains, but I honestly don't think the balcony furniture (2 plastic chairs and a table from Tesco or similar) had been cleaned this season, there was so much mould on it. But the room was clean and tidy, the bathroom was clean and bar prices very reasonable. The hotel shuttle is only hourly, so make sure you choose one earlier rather than later, as it is quite a ride from the terminals. And at £4.50 per person, it's not cheap (they don't do returns, so make sure you have enough cash to cover the cost of the shuttle for your return trip). The hotel has on-site car parking, and you leave your keys at reception, but all was OK and no harm came to the car.
