This hotel has no personality and no charm whatsoever, and in my view is best avoided.
There are other better hotels as close to North Terminal and they couldn't possibly be as unpleasant as this one.
When I arrived, there was a queue for one of the 4 lifts that takes you to the reception floor. It took a while.
Once there there was another queue for the self check in.... it was all very busy and noisy.
The room has absolutely no character, but then again it is not supposed to. They publicize that they have great pillows. I tried two different ones and disliked both.
The dining area was full and I just couldn't bring myself to sit there.
The hotel stated they had free wifi but BEWARE, it is free for only 30mins. You need to pay for it afterwards.
It was noisy outside all night, Gatwick is apparently extremely busy. But the biggest problem was the noise other guests made during the night. Unfortunately I could only manage to sleep a couple of hours. Had I known this I would have rather traveled early in the morning the next day directly to the airport - I was staying at Premier Inn due to an early flight the next day.
The only nice thing was breakfast. And the waitress, even though she was alone to serve the whole room, was very kind and helpful.
