The Ifield Court is different to most Gatwick hotels; it's a small, country house hotel in the village of Ifield, near Crawley. The friendly welcome and warm interior give the hotel a very relaxed atmosphere, the exact start to your holiday you're after. The Ifield Court Hotel prides itself on it's quirky and rustic features, and with customers returning year after year they are obviously doing something right.
The leafy grounds that the Ifield Court sit within are ideal, not only for plentiful on-site parking but also for customers to enjoy. With so much greenery, you will be surprised that you are only 10 minutes from Gatwick Airport. It's a simple, restful and attractive place to spend the night before your holiday.
The restaurant serves modern British cuisine, there's a cosy bar with double doors opening on to a large patio to enjoy on warmer days. Staff are super friendly and accommodating, you really will have everything you need for a comfortable and relaxed start to your holiday at the Ifield Court Hotel.
The hotel offers great value parking packages and subsidised transfers to the airport, making it a great deal for drivers.
The Ifield Court has a very traditional, British country feel and is a welcoming and characterful place to get a good nights rest before heading to the airport.
We recommend the Ifield Court for:
Character - The Ifield Court is full of old-fashioned charm. The rooms are all individually decorated and are clean and comfortable, with traditional furniture and luxury toiletries in the en-suite bathrooms.
Location - Although it's only 10 minutes from the airport, the Ifield Court is in the middle of the countryside and surrounded by beautiful grounds - it feels a world away from the busy terminal.
Personal service - It's a family-run hotel and the owners can be found somewhere on the premises most of the time if you need them for anything.
You can check in from 2pm; you must check out by 11am.
Ifield Court Hotel, Ifield Street, Gatwick, West Sussex RH11 0JY
What this hotel lacks in size it more than makes up for in charm and character. Set in the heart of the Sussex countryside, you'll feel a million miles away from the airport even though it's just 10 minutes away.
You can check into the hotel from 14:00. Park your car in the hotel's car park overnight (it's included in the price) and then head to reception, where you'll book your taxi transfer to the airport.
Dine on British classics in the hotel's restaurant, which serves from 18:45 to 21.30 daily. You'll find all of your traditional favourites like pie and mash, fish and chips and sirloin steak. Most main meals range from £10 to £15.
The well-stocked bar is charming and cosy, open from serving your pub favourites. The prices are reasonable too - you can get a pint for £3.80, which is very good for a hotel bar.
When it comes to the bedrooms, think family-run guest house - clean, comfortable, light and airy. The family rooms are particularly generous with some rooms sleeping up to six people. The rooms are a little dated and the decor certainly fits with the age of the hotel. They are undergoing a refurbishment at the moment - so watch this space!
Free wifi is available in the public areas and there are plenty of them. There's a home from home feeling watching the TV in the lounge, where you'll find comfy sofas, homely lighting and a gorgeous bay window. You can also enjoy a cup of tea in the romantic, fire-side seating area surrounded by wood-panelled walls, dark wood furniture and beautiful brass ornaments.
In the morning, sit down to a home-cooked, traditional English and continental breakfast, which you can get at a discount if you book it through us in advance. Breakfast starts at 07:00 and finishes at 09:00 but you can get lighter, continental items from 02:00. Add breakfast to your booking before you check out. You'll get a special price and it's one less thing to pay for on the day.
