“A quick stop over before flying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

Gatwick central is ideally located for those of us with early flights and a lengthy journey to Gatwick, We booked roughly 3 months in advance and got an amazing price (£19 per family room!).
Parking was easy about £7 for the night, although some folk were parking on the road outside the hotel, I didnt fancy carting my luggage up the driveway (next time I might organise myself a little better and pack seperately for the 1 evening). Check in was a doddle using the e-check in but a member of staff was available to deal with any problems.
It was a lovely evening so we decided to walk into the village and use the Olde 6 bells pub, food was nice but it was really REALLY busy, and we flew very early so I cant review the hotel food.
The room was as expected from Travelodge, very clean, very comfortable with a great view of the runway for those of you with a penchant for aircraft.
Although it is listed as North terminal, it is almost as close to South, I would choose this hotel above the other "south terminal" travelodge. It is newer cleaner and has more facilities in and around it.

In the past I have stayed at this hotel close to Gatwick North Terminal on the night before flying somewhere the next day. However, on this trip I decided to book a room after arriving at 1am from on a Flight from Spain. I wondered if the staff would be around at around 2pm and more importantly, did they give my room away as I had not notified them of a early morning arrival! I had no problems at all.....the night receptionists were as attentive as ever and checked me in pretty quickly. The room was bright and clean and the furnishing were excellent. My wife and I had a good nights sleep in a very comfortable bed and enjoyed a late start to the day with breakfast in the dining room.

A good stay....yet again.

We stayed here for a night before our early long haul flight,room was basic but clean with tea and coffee in room,we only paid £28 for a room for up to 4 persons(pull out sofa bed) This made our journey to Gatwick early morning so much easier as there is a regular bus service to both terminals and they only charge £3 to drop you and your luggage off.They will also arrange for you to park your car whilst you are away but obviously there is charge for this.W e never ate at the hotel so cannot comment on food or service.

I stayed here so I would not have the hassle of the m25 on the day of my flight.
only £3 from Gatwick airport .
order the set meal voucher on line which gives you a main meal and drink for about £10 pounds.
Rooms very clean bus goes every 10 minutes back to Gatwick before 9 then every 15 minutes.

We were very happy to find an extremely large, clean room.
The view isn't very inspiring but that didn't matter to us.
Fantastic value for money compared to others in the area.
There were always free parking spaces and we paid ahead of time for this which made things nice and easy. Shame parking wasn't free though.

The booking process was quick and hassle-free, the staff were courteous, well presented, well trained and helpful and the bedroom and bathroom were spotless, comfortable and had everything I could have needed.

This hotel does exactly what it says on the tin, it's a simple room for the night whilst on your travels. It's one of the more spacious & quiet travelodges that I've stayed in & I tend to always use this hotel the night before an early morning flight as the rates are good & it's easy to get to & from gatwick airport. It's a short (paid) shuttle ride from the airport (goes to both north & south terminals). Check in is simple, you can just input your name into a machine & it gives you your room key, or you can of course check in at the desk. Check out is just as simple & quick. There's also a massive 24hour bar with tv if you fancy a drink. Definitely worth booking if you value your sleep before a flight!
