Getting there and away
The Ramada Crawley is easy to find if you're travelling by car - it's on a main road, just seven minutes from the M23. You can park overnight for free in the large on-site car park and leave your car there while you're on holiday too. If youre coming by public transport, Crawley rail station is just a five-minute walk away. Trains run regularly from here to Gatwick airport and London.
You can book a taxi to the airport through the hotel for a flat fee of £8.50 per room. The journey takes just 10 to 15 minutes, but allow plenty of time as traffic in the town centre can be busy, especially during rush hour.
Two restaurants, one bar and the High Street on your doorstepThe Ramada Crawley has two welcoming restaurants: the affordable Wusungdan all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet, and the more formal Giggling Squid Thai restaurant.
Theres also free wifi throughout the hotel.
We recommend the Ramada Crawley Gatwick for:
Character - the Grade II listed building was once one of the most important coaching inns in England and over the centuries has been associated with royalty, smuggling, bareknuckle boxing and more.
Families - There are rooms for two adults and either one or two children, which are spacious enough for even the most rambunctious of families. The extra beds are a decent size too.
Night owls - Tucked away from the bedrooms is the Octopvs bar, which serves cocktails until 1am. This is Crawley's latest-opening bar (only the nightclubs serve until later) and theres a party atmosphere in here most nights, as local revellers lounge on chaises-longues and lean against Roman statues.
Public transport - Crawley train station is a five-minute walk from the Ramada Crawley and links the town with London Bridge and London Victoria, as well as Gatwick airport station, just eight minutes up the line. Once youre here youre in the town centre and can walk to any of the local attractions.
Food - The hotel has two restaurants, and there are numerous bars, pubs and restaurants on the High Street right outside. You can even order Thai room service something we have yet to see anywhere else in the UK.
You can check in from 2pm. You must check out by 11am.
The Ramada Crawley, formerly The George hotel, offers a glimpse into 17th Century coaching inn history. You'll not only be connected to history, but to transport links into Gatwick. Right in the heart of Crawley, this hotel is less than four miles from the airport and just a five-minute walk from Crawley station.
Steeped in history, this hotel was once a successful and convenient coaching inn for weary travellers, dating back to 1615. Today, you'll find the same comfort and convenience during your overnight stay.
Check-in is from 14:00 so there's plenty of time to explore the historic heart of Crawley.
When you're ready to eat, you've got the length of the whole high street to choose from. The hotel doesn't have its own bar or restaurant, but you're surrounded by eateries: there's a local Chinese restaurant, a Thai restaurant and several pubs to suit whatever takes your fancy. We'd recommend the Giggling Squid just down the high street for some delicious, homemade Thai food, and the Octopvs bar for a drink to get you in the holiday mood.
There are 84 simple but tastefully decorated bedrooms with comfy beds when you're ready to hit the hay. They have all you need to make tea and coffee, a trouser press, television, telephone, hair dryer and an en-suite bathroom.
And, you can stay connected throughout the hotel with free wifi.
Pre-book the most important meal of the day. It's a delicious buffet breakfast laid out in the building next door and is served from 06:45 to 09:30 on weekdays and from 07:30 to 10:00 on weekends.
Check-out is by 11:00, and if you have some extra time to spare, you're a three-minute stroll from Crawley shopping centre for some last-minute retail therapy.
When you're ready to fly, the hotel will book your taxi to the airport. It costs £8.50 per person and takes around 15 minutes.
