            Nightmare hotel and staff

            General information: I cannot believe that this hotel is still running!! My parents had the worst nightmare ever at this hotel although this was not recent or the date as above. The room waas disgusting, damp, cold and dark - like a basement. I had to drive up to the hotel the next day as they had lost my dads car!!! Apparently the foreign guy who worked in a "shack" in the car park had been sacked so threw every single car key in a bucket and left them like that. No one in the hotel could help. We had to call the police as there were other foreigners there who would not let us near the cars. After a few hours we found the keys but the car was behind a fence that they would not move. I attempted to pull it away. The police were taken to a yard - a builders yard where other cars had been taken and we had to try to find dads car amongs hundreds of cars whose keys were all in a bucket. The staff who were mainly foreign didnt want to help. We eventually found the car but the car next doors keys were just placed on the windscreen!! We also found other car keys lying on the ground. The hotel is disgusting and I would not recommend this hotel and car parking to anyone!!
            Service: Diabolical!
            Dining: Disgusting!
            Room: Basement!
            Useful tips: No useful tips - should have been shut down!

            Very hot and small rooms - bathroom tinyand 'capsule' like, but for the money it was a bed for 8 hours. Used the fly and park facility. Car had been valeted beforehand and was returned quite dirty on the outside - had obviously been kept outside in a very dusrt place and near roosting birds!

            reception girl very offhand,almost aggresive.The bed needs replacing,I could feel the springs when I layed down,hard to get comfortable.Couldn't get hot water to have a shower and the bathroom floor very sticky.Stayed one night as on route to airport,worst hotel I've stayed in.

            24 hour reception was good for airport hotel.

            Decor very tired and rooms very small.

            Hotel set in countryside surroundings, but nr flight path of airport. Accomodation standard but very clean.Bar and restaurant facilities very good.Particularly the restaurant with good menu, includin g a carvery, all at reasonable prices. Food excellently prepared.Good parking facilities.

            The hotel provides a bus transfer facility to Gatwick airport. However this only runs on an hourly basis, which can result in delays in collection from the airport.Other establishments nrby collect every 20 mins or so.

            Booking in was very easy as was booking in the car - the gentleman was very sweet and very pleasant. The bar staff were friendly although couldnt seem to speak very good English which is always a bit off putting. The meal in the bar area was good value and quite tasty. The room was fine for a night and the bus service to the airport was good.

            Coffee Facilities, Free WiFi at the Lobby, Every Hour Transport to/from Gatwick Airport, Nice Surroundings, Perfect for someone to be near Gatwick (15 minutes away)

            Small Room, Small TV and few channels, could hear people talking in next room, sheets and towels a bit smelly, no fridge, very isolated from everything (not even a mini market to have water)

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            Very laid back surroundings with very polite staff

            The only complaint i have is regarding the skylight in our room,the cover for it wasnt adequate so we were awake by 5am when the sun came up regardless of whether we wanted to wake or not,aside from that we had a very pleasant stay

            We thought the hotel was fair for the cost of stay

            Restaurant was excellent - good service, good food

            Check-in poor. Waited a good 10 minutes while they finished chatting on phone without any acknowledgement that we were waiting.

            For the price I could not fault this hotel, the staff were very friendly and made you feel welcome. Although on the website it was showing as only one family room available which I booked, when I checked in the receptionist gave me a choice of rooms. The hotel itself is a beautiful old building, the breakfast was an excellent buffet which is very hard to get right, the hot food was freshly cooked and plenty of it. The bedrooms were basic but clean with all the facilities you'd need. Plenty of parking space and beautiful views over the countryside.

            If I really had to find something to nit pick this hotel I'd say the rooms could do with updating and better soundproofing. But honestly compared to a lot of the other airport hotels in this area, this is excellent value for money.

            it smelt,the bar did not open till 3pm ther was no hot water till after 3pm then it got warm
