I stayed here twice in one week recently for early and late connections at Gatwick. There were some nice touches - most of the staff I spoke to were really friendly and on my second stay made a point of welcoming me back and informing me they had booked me into the same room.
Good Points :
Literally a stone's throw from North Terminal via covered walkway with quick access to South Terminal via monorail.
Clever design with rooms circling a grand central lobby. With lifts located at various points around the circle this minimises people walking past your room for those early morning flights.
Nice peaceful rooms - I had a view of the terminal and runway but thick windows meant I heard no noise whatsoever.
Look out for:
On receiving room service I noticed that as well as a tray charge (to be expected) on the bill there was also a 12% service charge added. This was not advised anywhere on the menu and took me over my maximum company allowance for dinner. As this was pre-printed on the bill it would have been pretty embarrassing to mention to the server. When I mentioned it at check out the receptionist did not seem very impressed I was asking for it to be removed. Overall room service was basic and over-priced so might be better to look at options in the terminals or try out one of the restaurants
