“Good staff, good value, close to Gatwick”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2009

Crawley is just 10 minutes by train from Gatwick, and Grange Hotel 5 minutes walk from the station. Also 5 minutes to Crawley town centre, with a couple of good pubs. Staff very helpful and there is free wifi in the lobby (compare with GBP10 at a Travelodge), though it would be even nicer to have the wifi available in the room...
Room basic but clean and quiet, despite proximity to car park at back of hotel and main road at front.
Very convenient for overnight stay in connection with late arrival to, or early departure from, Gatwick

We stopped for one night, going to a function opposite this hotel. You get what you pay for £35 a night. There is a good pub nearly opposite that sell very cheap food, or you can eat in hotel. Very close to town center

We stayed here for one night because we were in transit at Gatwick and needed to catch an early flight the next morning. We called the hotel from the airport and they sent us a minicab, which was way cheaper than catching an airport taxi. The staff at reception were very friendly.
The room was on the groundfloor and near the car park, but was quiet. The bed was comfortable, and the shower was good (but it took some time to get the hot water to start). The room was nothing special, but perfectly adequate for a few nights.
Our only complaint is that the night receptionist forgot to give us a wake up call (it was not automated). So remember to take an alarm clock.

The hotel is conveniently located close to Crawley town centre and bus and train stations. My room did the trick, but very basic and the carpet was stained and worn. The water pressure in the shower was also very weak. However, considering the location, the service (for example free wireless Internet access in the nice lobby area) and the fact that the rooms are fine for a short stay, the hotel provides very good value for people who are visiting Crawley or want to stay near Gatwick.

The Grange Hotel is absolutely perfect for people needing to stay over in a hotel close to Gatwick. It is really close to both the North and South terminals and they offer a parking service at the actual hotel.

The welcome was warm and genuine and this remained the same with each interaction with the reception staff.

The rooms, while small are perfect for an overnight stay and really are good value for money. The room was clean with plenty of spare blankets.

The curry house in the actual hotel itself was superb, beautiful food at a very reasonable price. People staying in the hotel get a good discount.

Overall a very good hotel and I would definitely go back again.

bed was rock hard, light in toilet didn't work, floor had someone's lunch on it, the shower had tape and electrical fittings in it. Obviously hadn't been cleaned and the plug hole in the sink was orange lime scaled.The walls are so thin you can hear the people on opposite of the corridor having a conversation in their room. Told staff about dirty room they did nothing said nothing just walked out and never came back. When we left at 4.30 am there were a bunch of drunk people sitting on the doorstep with their beer cans. Staff couls see them as it was a glass door but thought they were ok obviously! Hated every minute here would rather sleep in the car.
Hated it !!!!!!!
