Fordeler: Just a couple of minutes' walk from Gatwick's North Terminal this sizeable hotel couldn't be more convenient.
Having checked-in on line, I just collected my receipt and keys from one of the machines at reception and was quickly on my way to a very clean, comfortable room.
We had pre-purchased a meal deal (a 2-course dinner, drink and breakfast) for less than £25 a head, which was great value.
The bar and restaurant was very busy when we dropped in at around 6pm but with plenty of friendly, polite staff service was surprisingly prompt. Dinner was delicious and served at just the right pace.
Breakfast offered an extensive fresh buffet, but poached eggs and other dishes were also available to order from the kitchen. A great start to the day.

Fordeler: The location is great, rooms clean and staff helpful.
Ulemper: Waiting for the lifts became quite a pain. I was lucky on the 2nd floor so could take the stairs, but even at 5am it was difficult. Wanted to try the restaurant too, but very busy - would have had to wait over an hour - lucky there's lots nearby or across at the south terminal.

Fordeler: The staff were friendly and courteous and very helpful. Food was good and rooms comfortable and clean.
Fordeler: Convenient to Terminal , very quiet room with excellent facilities.
Fordeler: Great location for an overnight connection. Clean, comfortable rooms, good breakfast
Ulemper: I booked for 2 nights, flight problems lead to me missing my first night and arriving very late the next. On arrival I was lead to believe my booking had been canceled and the hotel was full After 2 hours I was given a room and my booking re-instated. Why was this necessary, I had a booking, I arrived, to wait until 3:30am to be given my room was almost unbelievable.
Fordeler: Check-in was quick and easy, room was very clean and new, despite being attached to the airport it was extremely quiet, and the wifi was excellent. The included breakfast was fantastic - huge and varied - much appreciated before an early morning flight. Also had dinner in the same lounge area the night before and all of the staff who served us were lovely. Highly recommend this hotel and will stay again.
Ulemper: The only negative I can come up with is that it is in the north terminal and I was flying out of the south, but that's hardly much of an issue because the tram between the two is all of a 3 minute walk from the hotel door.
Fordeler: Praktisk i forhold til terminalen, veldig stille rom med flotte fasiliteter.
Fordeler: Flott beliggenhet for tilkobling. Rene og komfortable rom, god frokost
Fordeler: Just as advertised, comfortable and functional room at an affordable price, just a couple of minutes away from airport security as well as train station. The space available is quite tight, so don't expect to 'enjoy' it much (even though bed is very comfortable and shower is very nice), this is no leisure hotel, but rather 'get it done' style accommodation.
Ulemper: After using the shower, the floor is wet so if you need to use the toilet after you'll be stepping on water and then out again onto the carpet. Again, functional but less than ideal. Maybe the floor should be slightly tilted in the shower so it drains/dries quicker.
Fordeler: So convient in the south terminal at gatwick. Clean and everything you need for one night. Didn't hear any planes, which I was worried about.

Fordeler: it was IN the airport terminal
Ulemper: The terminal is DEPRESSING.
No WINDOWS! It’s like a little luxury prison cell. There was no private area in the hotel to do online work, went to one of the more human feeling pub-like restaurants.

Fordeler: Superb location in the terminal however although it has great technology the TV wouldn't work and despite a replacement remote still nothing. They did offer to give us another room but we had unpacked by then, a bit bright from outside lights on top floor. Very quit despite its location.
Fordeler: Fantastic clean decor and beautiful shower and very quiet
Ulemper: No desk with power sockets

Fordeler: Very comfy bed and very friendly staff!
Ulemper: Shower wasn't separated from the rest of the bathroom, so the entire bathroom floor was soaked.
Fordeler: Så nære i south terminal i Gatwick. Rent og alt du trenger for en natt. Kunne ikke høre noe fly, som jeg var bekymret for.
Fordeler: Staff were friendly. Room very clean. Beds comfortable, not sagging in my middle as some are. Excellent location for Gatwick airport travellers. Good restaurants. Priced reasonably.
Ulemper: They view! But cannot help that. But the large windows were nice.

Fordeler: Great hotel to stay in if you're flying out from Gatwick. I have stayed a couple of times. Very clean quiet & comfortable. 4 restaurants to choose from and a bar.
Ulemper: Service in the lobby bar was very poor both times I have stayed, which is a shame, it's a great place for a drink. It wasn't busy but the staff pay no attention to the customers sitting down and congregate around the bar or walk past avoiding eye contact
Fordeler: De ansatte var vennlige. Rommet er veldig rent. Sengene er komfortable, ikke som den seg i min midten som noen er. Utmerket beliggenhet i forhold til Gatwick airport reisende. Gode restauranter. rimelig pris.
Ulemper: De viser! Men ikke kan hjelpe det. Men de store vinduene var fine.
Ulemper: When you first pull in there are cars everywhere. They are parked on the double yellow and the grass so it looks like it's going to be difficult to park. Then you pull around back and there is a HUGE, almost empty car park. I guess people are just too lazy to see that there is also an entrance to the hotel at the back.
Fordeler: As expected for a Holiday Inn, staff was fantastic, great location if you want a quick overnight hotel for an early morning flight. The GBP3 shuttle bus only takes about 15 mins from Gatwick South and only 5-10 from the hotel to Gatwick South. All in all, a great bargain for only GBP49.
Ulemper: The room did not have a minibar/minifridge, which was a pain because I had some things I wanted to keep fresh for the next day flight. Also, very little free tv channels compared to their "100+ channels" advertising. The mattress wasn't what you would get at a 5 star (obviously), but definitely better than your average budget hotel.
Ulemper: The staff was not helpful. Location was convenient to Gatwick. That was the only positive.
Fordeler: Room and staff.
Ulemper: Unexpected car park charge of £25 a night??
Fordeler: closeness to airport
Ulemper: hotel smelled strongly of cleaning chemicals
Fordeler: Great hotel near airport.beer a bit too expensive.gym small but pratical.comfy bed.
Fordeler: Breakfast Buffet was excellent.
Ulemper: Too far from North terminal. Would prefer somewhere close so that we canwalk over to the terminal.
Fordeler: This hotel was very convenient ,the close proximity to Gatwick and shuttle makes it great.. Staff very professional and friendly.. Will highly recommend ..My husband and I will come back again and again..
Ulemper: Liked everything..
Ulemper: De ansatte var ikke hjelpsom. Beliggenhet var praktisk i forhold til Gatwick. Det var det eneste positive.
Fordeler: Complimentary breakfast buffet was great. Bed was decently comfortable.
Ulemper: Room had an old musty/mouldy smell. Wifi was free for only 30 min. Towels didn't smell clean. Room overall needed to be updated. Stayed here because we had a flight layover overnight out of Gatwick and thought we could just walk to to hotel, but it's actually about a 5 min cab ride from airport.
Fordeler: The room was very clean and seemed to have been recently updated. I like that there was decaf coffee avail.
The people at Reception were especially helpful.
Ulemper: No tissues, toiletries or hairdryer in room
7,1 Veldig bra
Fordeler: The reception staff are always really nice and in the mornings and it's always nice and calm in the restaurant for breakfast. They have a good range of breakfast food and a 24hr bar so there's always somewhere to go other than your room
Ulemper: The towles smelt like curry Which was off putting and house keeping were quite rude. The main issue is that there's nothing to do or anywhere to go in the area. You have to get a bus or taxi everywhere you go.
Fordeler: Rommet var svært rent og virket som om de hadde nylig blitt oppdatert. Jeg liker at det var koffeinfri kaffe tilgjengelig.
De ansatte i resepsjonen var svært nyttig.
Ulemper: Ingen servietter, toalettsaker og hårføner på rommet
