It may not be the most salubrious hotel in Sussex, but I am hard pushed to fault the Gatwick Belmont for it's value for money and fantastic location. It's just 5 minutes from the terminals, but it doesn't seem to be under the airport's flight paths, so it's surprisingly quiet for it's proximity. The airport transfers are frequent, quick and efficient (friendly drivers, helpful with bags - on one occasion the manager drove me himself on an unscheduled transfer, when no one was waiting - A++ service !) so no complaints here - although if your return flight at Gatwick is after 9pm you will need to book a taxi, as I did (hence 4/5 stars for service, otherwise 5!) , but the fare was only £6 approx.
I have used the guest house four times over the last two years and have found the hotel's staff helpful, welcoming and professional and the facilities as one would expect. Nice cozy lounge/ bar (didn't eat there, but menu and prices looked reasonable), too, and internet access. I have only stayed overnight on one occasions and found the rooms to be basic, but clean, well-serviced and as described on their website. all you need for a decent nights sleep, really.
On 3 out of 4 occasions I could not fault the airport parking facility. My car was ready and waiting on my arrival (except one one occasion in the early hours of the morning, there was a slight mix up but that was resolved swiftly and fairly painlessly by the overnight desk clerk).
I will certainly be continuing to use the Gatwick Belmont whenever I fly in and out of Gatwick. It may not be the Hilton, but it's great value for money and the location A++. Recommended.
