Stayed at the property in January for a couple of nights while on business .
The property is a bit dated and in need for refurbishment. The rooms are a bit small. Also lighting in the room could be better for business travellers as it is very dim. Also, the hotel uses a system whereby either all the rooms are heated during winter months or on cooling system during the summer months . I really like my room to be cool for a decent sleep but was unable to get the temperature right and had to leave the windows open at night , which is not ideal and leads to noise.
Now the good bits - Convenient location for people flying in and out of Gatwick. Also hotel close to a leisure park with a good spread of restaurants.
The bathroom in the room was great and a fantastic size which I like.
Should mention here that the staff are really polite and that does help.
To summarise, an okay experience owing to the reasons mentioned above.
