English charm gone wrongPosted Apr 22, 2015
Pros: The staff couldnt have been more unhelpful. Their disgust for the management is obvious and how management has abandoned this hotel in any support.
Cons: No ATM, No currency exchange, No local calls allowed, No business center or computer to use, No room safe, No mattress from this century.
Location: This hotel is buried in the countryside, surrounded by horses and farms. Pretty, yes. Convenient for the airport? No.
When you travel for business, and not corporate but your own small business, you expect a certain level of comfort and amenities. You expect people to work with you to achieve the goals you have set. I had an excruciating 4 day stay at this hotel recently that started with what I thought was going to be a nice quaint English hotel, filled with charm and history, run by experienced innkeepers sympathetic to the weary traveler. What I got was Fawlty Towers. Upon arrival I was given a room that was no more than a phone booth with a double bed. I could touch both walls with arms outstretched laying on the bed. No window, barely a bath. After nixing this first choice, I was shown a better room, a little bigger but at least it had a window so I could tell the time of day. The bed was old, mattress was dented but the sheets were thick and clean. Bath was updated, again very clean and the shower was strong but small. Curious though, the shower/tub was so far off the bath floor that I had to use the non slip mat on the bath floor just so I didnt crack my head open on a wet, tile floor. No grab bars or anything that would hold someone up. A strong point for the elderly. This hotel has a bar and a buffet, both are acceptable but both expect payment up front before any services or food are rendered. I dont think this is a British dynamic but indigenous to this hotel instead. Its inconvenient to keep digging into my pocket for every beer and biscuit. Ran out of room to write.

You get what you pay for!Posted Apr 16, 2015
Verry dated and rundown smelt funny when walking to the rooms. Beds were very hard and gave me backache. Didn't want to eat there so went elsewhere for food. On the plus side didn't here the plains going over during the night as its in the flight path!

Don't get a room with no window.Posted Apr 3, 2015
At first they gave me a tiny room without a window. Health and safety regulations require a fan to be on 24 hours a day (because of no window) and I couldn't sleep because of the noise. So I asked them to give me a room without fan and so they did. The hotel is all olddish, but well-kept and clean.

Dont waste your money.Posted Mar 8, 2015
Location: Lovely area of Surrey countryside and ok just for a few hours sleep. At end of Gatwick runway and directly under flightpath.
Stayed here twice. On first visit, we were given a small room with no window (just an overhead skylight) On second visit we were given a ground floor room with double bed but little bigger than a broom cupboard and a broken bathroom window which could not be closed. Most of staff do their best but place is quite rundown. If you cannot get a Premier Inn or even a Travelodge at a reasonable price, save your money and sleep in the car.
