"Nice, quaint, we'll be back"
We only stopped here for a layover that was overnight. It was a very large cute place. Reminded me of Downton Abbey style. The front desk staff was very helpful. They have afternoon tea as well as breakfast.
"A country surprise near Gatwick airport "
A real surprise finding then a couple of mins drive from Gatwick airport. Lovely gardens and pretty old looking hotel with modern extension that is in keeping with the decor. Food also pretty good and would happily stay again.
"LONG walk to our rooms."
My attempts at booking this hotel proved to be cumbersome. Found it on Booking.com but could not find a rate that included breakfast (probably my mis handling of the site). Called an 0800 number for the hotel group, not my preferred method of contact. However, the polite lady who answered gave me a rate that included breakfast but suggested that I call the hotel direct. I did and spoke to a gentleman who told me there was availability and he quoted the rate (same for the two rooms I was interested in), but the rate was significantly higher than that quoted by the lady on the 0800 number. I thanked him for his help and prepared to ring off; he immediately offered a second rate that was significantly lower, less than all the rates quoted to this point. I confirmed that breakfast was still inclusive and booked the rooms. What a palaver' Easily found the hotel using the satnav postcode. A parking ticket is provided at the entry barrier, and plentiful parking is available. Check in was efficient and the staff friendly and cheerful even though they were busy checking airlines crews in and out. Our two rooms were a LONG walk from reception. Adequate room size, comfortable beds (twin), and a reasonable bathroom -- shower over the bath type of arrangement. The room was clean and we had a good nights sleep. We ate in the 'White Swan Pub' and all four of us enjoyed our meals. The three lads who served us were also cheerful and we enjoyed chatting to them. Overall this hotel was a good choice for our overnight stay near Gatwick Airport prior to flying out to sunnier places. We will use this Hotel again so long as we get a reasonable rate.
"Nice location and accomodation"
We met old friends here who had traveled from different parts of the UK. Staff were very friendly and helpful at check in. Rooms were appointed well and bed was comfortable The hotel is really set up for travelers flying from Gatwick Airport and has extensive parking. My main concerns were the bar prices which were very high compared to other hotels I have stayed in not just UK but around the world. The breakfast I felt was also very expensive.
"Park and Go - Perfect for Gatwick"
Hi, we have booked this hotel through an Airport Parking booking website several times and it is perfect for Gatwick if you are off on your holidays. It is very close to the airport and you can either use the hotels shuttle bus or book a private taxi at reception - we always opt for the taxi as it is very reasonably priced and they are always on time. The rooms are very clean and tidy, with all the modern features you would expect from a hotel of this calibre. The restaurant serves a good range of hot food and was off reasonable value. Not cheap but about right for a hotel. That also applies to the drinks that are on offer. We found the staff to be very helpful, smart and polite at all times. Parking and leaving your car is a breeze just pull up and park. Hand your car keys and the staff will have your car ready for when you return. The car park has security cameras, barriers and is well lit. It really does take the strain out of the start of your holiday - love it!
