                I only chose the hotel for its location as I had a business meeting nearby. It was a pleasant stay.

                I chose the hotel as it appeared to have good parking facilites. I do not like to struggle to find parking after a day at work and a journey. There was very little parking available and I was squeezed onto the side of a service road.

                I thought the hotel was of a very good standard. When my continental breakfast didn't arrive as promised, the staff were apologetic and speedy in bringing it. Furthermore, they didn't charge me the £12 cost.

                I have stayed with you many times coming from Guernsey to shop and have always found staff helpful and polite

                no only thing that would help me more is a postal service for parcels as one of your staff used to do for me a few years back and debit my creditcard. This helped me a great deal however you no longer will do this. I buy a lot of goods for charity boxes and come over by plane especially for this.

                very comfortable & good secure location

                i did not like the £10.00 car parking fee because no one told me about this at time of booking or when i checked in either.

                Rooms are comfortable and of high level, and the service at the reception was of good level, also if not really very focused on customers at times. Arriving early is not a problem, if paying for passing to a superior room.

                Accessing from the train station side is uncomfortable, lacking a slide for heavy luggages. The breakfast is disappointing in quality and variety. Despite the "highlighted" quality of dining room, it was more like sitting in some american bar.

                The staff were friendly, the place was clean we booked the family room and it was spacious for Uk hotels. We didn't like the area much.

                The choice of food was limited, the only restaurant they had was an italian one and it didn't have a wide selection of dishes. My husband and kids wanted regular spaghetti with tomato sauce which they didn't have. They had a good kids menu though, and they were kind enough to let me order from it, I ordered a burger which was really really good! The chicken fingers were also good. My husband ordered from their regular menu and he didn't like his food that much. So order from the kids menu if you're hungry. I also didn't like the area that much, we stayed at this hotel for a one night transit and didn't want to stay at the airport cause we wanted to walk around and eat out. But all the familiar restaurants were either delivery only or were closed, the other places weren't so family friendly.

                Location, the comfort of the rooms and the security of the rooms is very good.

                I thought that the parking was frustrating. So many people came into the hotel whilst I was booking in asking where they could park. I wonder if too much parking is allocated for long stay parking.

                It was a good quality Gatwick hotel.

                The receptionist who I talked to when waiting at the bus stop should have explained that the hotel coack cost little £3.50 but the Gatwick taxi service cost 17.00. The hotel could have ordered a taxi for me costing £8.50 if I wanted a quicker service than the hotel coach.
