(4 star hotel)
including 8 days parking
from the airport
Go the extra mile
You've heard of the city that never sleeps - now see the Gatwick Arora, the Gatwick hotel that never sleeps. Everything about the Arora is 24/7: from the Arora Palm Bar (serving drinks around the clock) to the state-of-the-art gym (always open) to the shuttle buses and taxis that run like clockwork to whisk you to and from the airport at any time of the day or night. And needless to say, even if the hotel never sleeps, you will - with the gym in the basement, the bars in the ground floor atrium and the planes safely tucked away behind soundproofed glass.
Walk straight off the train and into reception
The Arora Gatwick is unrivaled in terms of location for those travelling to Gatwick by public transport, with a gate leading from the hotel directly onto the platform of Crawley station - from which direct trains take just eight minutes to reach Gatwick airport.
Those arriving by car will also find the hotel easy to locate and convenient for parking - it's on a main road, just six minutes from the M23, and clearly signposted.
Guests can park in the on-site, underground Arora hotel car park for an hour for free, and the Arora offers two simple options for leaving your car while you jet off on holiday either have it picked up by Gatwick Maple Manor Meet and Greet parking, who will drop it back to the terminal on your return, or park it yourself in the Long Stay car park at either the North or the South terminal.
If you're using Maple Manor Meet and Greet, a chauffeur will collect your car from the hotel and take it to Maple Manor's secured car park, where it will stay while you're away. Youll need to either take the train to Gatwick from the station adjoining the hotel, or book the Aroras shuttle bus or a taxi. A taxi will take around 15 minutes to reach the North and South terminals, the bus slightly longer.

The Arora Hotel at Crawley is a good hotel and convenient to get to Gatwick via train or shuttle bus. Rooms very well appointed. Bar facilities good. Breakfast disappointing (hot buffet items cold) for a second time.Mr Richards, 28 Apr 2013

Relax in a bar that never shuts its doors
The Arora Gatwick has several options for both eating and drinking. You can have good, honest pub grub at Morgans Pub, lighter deli-style dishes such as sandwiches, wraps and pizzas in the Palm Deli, or haute cuisine in the more formal The Grill restaurant. Drinks are served 24 hours a day in the Palm Bar, Morgans Pub is open every evening if you're looking for a traditional pub atmosphere, and the room service menu is available around the clock.
The Arora Gatwick also offers free wifi in the lobby, a shop for any last-minute forgotten holiday essentials or London souvenirs and a gym and health club, where there's a steam room, a sauna and a treatment room for everything from massages to manicures.
Dont miss a ride in one of the glass elevators, which ascend speedily from ground level up to the fifth floor and offer views over the lobby and Palm Deli.
We recommend the Arora Gatwick for:
Public transport - If youre coming to Gatwick airport by train you cant pick a more convenient hotel. The Arora Gatwick has direct access to the train station through a gate onto the platform and therefore offers the quickest transfer time from train to room of any hotel at Gatwick airport. You can also use the same train to reach either the North or South terminal for your flight - it takes just eight minutes from here to Gatwick airport train station.
Families - Rooms sleeping two adults and either one or two children are available at the Arora Gatwick and are spacious enough for a family with all their holiday luggage.
Gym bunnies - The Arora Gatwick has a state-of-the-art gym which is open 24 hours a day, so whatever time you check in theres sure to be time for one last pre-holiday workout.
Town centre location - As if 24/7 service at the hotel itself wasn't enough, from the Arora Gatwick its a five-minute walk to Crawleys County Mall shopping centre, and just a couple more minutes into the town centre. Here youll find numerous pubs, bars and restaurants so you neednt stay within the hotel if you dont want to. Theres even well-known club Liquid just around the corner for those who really want to get the party started.
Earliest check-in time is 2pm, unless otherwise arranged. Latest check-out time is noon, unless otherwise arranged.
A fantastic deal on this stylish hotel connected to a train line that runs straight to the airport, but, since it's a special offer, you can't change or cancel your booking.
A hotel that runs around the clock. You can check in any time from 14:00 right through to the following morning. The Arora Gatwick has everything the discerning traveller needs, from a luxury gym to a great bar, both open 24 hours a day. There's also a sauna and steam room so you can unwind and get into that holiday state of mind.
Good quality, local produce is the basis for the extensive and tasty menu in The Grill restaurant. There's fish from the Kent and Sussex coast, beef and veal from the west country, chicken from Suffolk, and salmon from Scotland - and a whole section of the menu is devoted to explaining the origins of the produce and the standards of animal welfare. Dinner is served from 18:00 till 22:00.
For the best deal, book a two-course meal through us. You still get to eat in the delicious Grill restaurant but you'll pay a lot less for it.
It's always Pimms o'clock in the Palm Bar - it's open 24 hours a day and serves bottle-beers, wines and spirits. If you prefer something on draught, then head to Morgan's pub. It's just like your local, with TV screens showing sport, pub grub, beer on tap and it's open from 17:00 to 23:00. If coffee and cake is more up your street, the Palm Deli serves a beautiful selection of baked goods as well as the finest teas and coffees from 09:30 to 22:00.
The bedrooms are bright, spacious and beautifully decorated. The rooms have everything you'd expect from a 4-star hotel: tea and coffee, free wifi, a fridge, a safe and a very comfy bed. A particularly nice touch in the en suite bathroom is the separate bath and shower - a rarity at hotels. You feel like the hotel's trying to give you more space rather than save it to cram in more rooms.
Breakfast is a delicious all-you-can-eat buffet with plenty of great choices for hungry guests. You've been counting down to your holiday so don't go hungry on the big day. Add breakfast to your booking before you check out - it's served from 06:00 to 10:00.
