Arriving to find a bank of computer screens in lieu of a Reception Desk made us fear the worse. However, there were staff hovering around to ensure everyone understood the intricacies of the system. Hey presto, we had our Room Key in the form of a credit card.
The lifts were, to say the least, idiosyncratic. We waited and waited for ages for one to arrive. Thank goodness we were only only on the third floor. Our room was tiptop. Sparklingly clean and really well soundproofed.
Food was our next priority. The Inn offers a "Meal Deal". With some apprehension, we took this option. It more than measured up. For dinner we enjoyed tempura prawns followed by smokey bacon chicken salad with a glass of house wine. Despite the restaurant being full of families with young children, we we're shown to a quiet area.
Breakfast was arguably the best breakfast we have had for a long time. Suffice to say that whether you want Continental or Full English, the choice was there.
Replete from breakfast, we only had to stroll across the road to enter the Terminal. If using Gatwick North Terminal in future, won't hesitate to book in here.
