This hotel consistently hits the spot - friendly staff, comfortable rooms, good facilities etc. Dare I say it, also one of the few hotels in the area which still offers smoking rooms to outcasts such as myself - keep it up Arora!
Sadly the Morgan pub is not up to the same standard - a very bland, dull place - pretty much summing up Crawley itself.
I have, however, enjoyed the Italian restaurant in the past, but was disillusioned on this visit with the Holiday Extras £ 10 voucher offer; basically this comprised a very limited two-course menu, so I opted to pay £ 15 more for a la carte, only to find that unless you had a very expensive starter and main course, you actually lost out. Note to self: avoid voucher offers in future, as the restaurant is a very nice place to dine (again a rarity in Crawley)
My only other misgiving with the restaurant is that children of any age appear to be tolerated regardless of the time (or their behaviour). Please give us adult guests a break - after all, if you're travelling, it's almost guaranteed that at least one grizzling, screaming child - plus benevolent parents - will conspire to ruin your flight the following day (if airport security has not already done so), so at least let the previous evening be enjoyable.
