"A few years since we last stayed here"
We had an overnight stay here whilst visiting my children. The price was good and we had a club room. The hotel has not moved on much since my previous stays. Club rooms are big but everything is looking a bit tired We were given vouchers for a drink at the bar in the evening. The barman was very cheerful and helpful. We had a problem at check in with regard to whether or not breakfast had been booked but the receptionist did sort it out. If you want fried eggs now, you have to ask for them and they are brought to you. The quality of food was excellent. The hotel lifts must be the slowest in the world. All in all, the place is ready for a refurbishment.
"A night in the hotel before flying from Gatwick"
Having a problem believing some of the other reports as our experience was totally the opposite to them ,superb location and treatment.From the initial check in ,subsequent evening meal,attention by the check in staff and the availability of parking our cars there for the week whilst on our trip to Norway everything went brilliantly.The rooms were more than adequate with large double beds ,nicely decorated and maintained and when we requested more complimentary coffee the staff were friendly and helpful and brought more to our room.First class,we will certainly be using this hotel again in the future
"Fab room and breakfast "
Had a great stay at the hotel Can recommend to anyone wanting a good price for a night away. Staff very helpful and a great bar and breakfast Room service was a little slow but food was excellent. Lots of parking and very close to Gatwick airport if you needed somewhere gir an early flight. Hotel is way off the road so no traffic noise.
"Awful rooms and staff don't care"
Not sure where to start . Wifi rubbish phone signal awful rooms dated with worn furniture small beds sagging in middle mouldy bathroom tiles and the room was cold . Asked for extra blankets direct to a housekeeper as per information file told there were none !! What in the whole hotel ''' She was rude did not care . Tissue box had one tissue in it !! Staff had a don't care attitude Breakfast was cold I asked for vegeterian and was greeted with I don't understand the manager said she could understand so not sure what was going on there !when I asked for an egg as the scrambled eggs were watery she rolled her eyes !! Got 50 % back for breakfast but room was 112.00 def ripped off don't bother staying here. No one on this site seems to have had to pay so much for a standard room. I emailed hotel no response
We got a good price for this stay as it was £10 cheaper than the Premier Inn! Excellent location and good parking. Not charged for parking but it did say it was £5' Had to phone down to reception for wifi code as it was not in the room information folder. No charge for this. The room was very large and overlooked the rear garden so was nice. It was not until we were in bed and wanted to read that it was noticed there was no bedside wall light on one side of the twin beds! The fixing was there on the wall but no lamp! Rang down to advise reception of this and told them to report to maintenance as we were in bed and not going to ask for another room, but would have if noticed earlier. Also when we moved the table lamp on the dressing table to by the bedside to read that the light shade was not fixed and lifted right off! Also advise reception when checking out. It seems that the room maintenance is some what lacking as other people have also noted room faults. For the price we paid it was overall a good stay apart from these faults that could easily have been rectified. I did leave a feedback form in the reception box but as yet have had no feedback, will I get one'' Did tell reception girl that there was maintenance issues and she did note down. Was this reported I wonder'
