Not close enough to Gatwick unless you use a car.

Posted Jun 25, 2014
Pros: Luxury Towels and comfortable clean beds.
Cons: Customer Service
Location: Too far away from Gatwick Airport and it was very close to an industrial Estate with only McDonalds close by.
We went to the information centre at Gatwick and was advised to use a Hotel Shuttle Bus only to be told the shuttle bus does not go to Crown Plaza to use a Local Bus. We were put off in the middle of no where and asked a local directions.We arrived at the hotel and started the hotel check in which went smoothly until the Receptionist informed me we were room only.I knew I had booked B&B but it wasn't showing up on the screen.I was told it would cost me £34 for two breakfast. I insisted I had pre paid for B&B and was told if I produce a document which proved I had booked B&B. After a long and tiring day we proceeded to the snack bar to order food before it closed and I had to backtrack all e-mails concerning the booking.I did find an e-mail which had all information of the booking which included the breakfast.Once again I proceeded to the reception to show the e-mail to the desk , who brought up my info and saw right away we had paid for breakfast. This is the kind of stress you don't need at the end of a wonderful holiday.Wont be staying there again ...more staff training should be given for Customer Service.

Gatwick is a long way when a taxi is required

Posted Jun 21, 2014
Pros: Overall a good hotel. The service we received from the hotel staff was outstanding, particularly the housekeeping staff.
Cons: The lack of a shuttle service to Gatwick is a real loss. The luggage cart does not fit in all elevators or through the hallway doors to the rooms.
Location: Location is quite a distance from Gatwick and not convenient for an overnight stay and fly out next day.
The Crowne Plaza Gatwick has been our hotel of choice when flying out of Gatwick. However, this time it was a little less convenient as there is no longer a shuttle and you must get a taxi. This proved a somewhat expensive proposition as we had a rentat car to return. All up 2 trips to/from Gatwick cost us 32 British pounds. The room was a little worn but no issues with the facilities or the staff. We received outstanding service when required.

Incorrect Hotel Information

Posted May 6, 2014
Pros: nothing!
Cons: See above
Location: A good restaurant that had excellen t meals for half the price of what this hotel were charging
Not up to Crowne Plaza standards (previous CP stays).Room was cold. Thermostat had a notice to the effect that there was no heat between April and October ! I complained to Reception and they sent someone up to the room-314 with a portable heater.Room had only 1 hard back desk chair. Expedia website indicated cab transfers to/from Gatwick would be 10pds stlg. Our pre-booked cab on Monday morning May 5 cost 15 pds stlg. When the driver was challenged he said that there was an additional charge for weekends and holidays and that the hotel must have forgotten this. Would not use this hotel again.

Good transit hotel

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: Several of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.
Cons: Food in the restaurant has some room for improvement.
Location: It is a good transit hotel and reasonably close to Gatwick Airport. Shuttle buses are not available as was previously the case.
Several times I have stayed at transit hotels close to Gatwick Airport. This one is a good one. It is comfortable and the staff are very helpful and pleasant.
