Stayed here with work recently for a few nights. Rooms are small, service is pretty poor. There is a gym and swimming pool however neither are anything special. The pool certainly is impossible to swim lengths in. Bar prices are fairly typical for airport hotels i.e. expensive! And the restaurant is nothing to write home about. My tip: avoid the kedgeree as breakfast as I ended up in bed for two days with food poisoning!
It's only redeeming feature is that it is fairly close to Gatwick airport and the centre of Crawley, So unless someone else is paying, I would avoid it. If you do have to visit Crawley, and everywhere else is full then you have my sympathies. The airport is about a 10 minute taxi ride away when there is no traffic.
In summary; overpriced and underwhelming.
