We stayed here as part of the park and fly package with Thompson, when we dropped the car off we were looking forward to staying there when we returned home. It looked a very impressive hotel and easy to find. However I would recommend the shuttle bus and not lugging your heavy suitcases down the corridor and platform then over the bridge.
When we returned tired after long day travelling looking forward to a good night sleep for the long drive home, we were met by a receptionist that didn't even look up or greet us with a hello! just mummbled 'checking in?'(blonde with foreign accent). She gave us key and asked for credit card not explaining what it was for without us asking why, no info on facilities, available food or drink, where our room was or how to use the lift. There itself was lovely, modern and clean, the bed a little bounce, everytime my boyfriend moved I would move. Tried to put the rude receptionist out of mind and get to relax only to be disturbed by sounds of passing trains and moving lifts!
Before we flew we stayed at a TravelLodge gatwick, it was basic but spotless and very welcoming would choose this one in a shot!
