Travelling from Cardiff to Gatwick can be quite a hassle if you were to drive and fly the same day. My parents and I regularly travel to Orlando from Gatwick and the Arora Hotel Gatwick Crawley has been, and always will be our preffered place of stay for an overnight stop before flying out the next day.
We have stayed at the Arora for several years. Its reasonable prices and high standards ensure we always return. The hotel looks modern, the staff are polite and the rooms are clean. Staying at this hotel the night before the flight is the start of the holiday experience. I would recomend this hotel to every person - suitable for singles, couples, families, tour groups etc.
The prices for food are a little expensive but I guess that is what you pay for from a quality hotel near to Gatwick Airport.
The rooms have an electronic control for the air conditioning. You have to place a card in the slot to keep the a/c running. I find that you can put any old card in there, i use my Nectar card, to keep the room cool so you can leave the room with the room card and not have to worry about returning to a hot room!The bathrooms have a seperate shower cubicle and are very spacious.
The televisions are the old CRT type and should be repleced. The only clock in the room is on the TV - I would prefer to have a bedside clock.
The refridgerator is not cold enough at all.
Carpet rising in some hallways - potential trip hazard for disabled and elderly.
The hotel could improve by;
- Having ice buckets and colder fridge
- New televisions
Overall, very impressed with this Hotel and will definately return.
