After a ridiculous early morning flight, falling onto a nice comfortable bed is most welcome. With the new Premier Inn at Gatwick, it ticks all the right boxes and more. With other hotels using a shuttle bus (costing £3) and the ultra expensive Sofitel, the Premier Inn is the most sensible being one of the closest and I suspect the cheapest option out of all.
The self check-in terminals were offline when we arrived but the staff had already anticipated our arrival and our keys were ready. One of the staff helped us to the lift and swiped his card so we could reach level 10. Gold stars all round!
The room itself is the standard Premier Inn layout with the ultra comfortable Hypnos bed (that my wife has fallen in love with). Tea and coffee making facilities along with a nice bathroom were very welcome. The only two issues (which Premier Inn can’t do anything about) the structure the building affects mobile phone reception and the TV was positioned in such a way that we couldn’t watch it from the bed (which is no great loss as we weren’t in the mood).
Our checkout was very smooth and the receptionist on duty was very funny and courteous – that’s a good mix to put people in a good frame of mind for the day!
Factor in a really good price, you can’t fail with Premier Inn. Book early and you’ll get the rooms really cheap. Well done Premier Inn at Gatwick North – we look forward to seeing you next year.
