4-star convenience and facilities
If Gatwick airport hotels were cakes, then the Crowne Plaza Gatwick would be the one with just that little bit of extra icing on the top. This is the hotel where they're so keen you get a good night's sleep, you don't just get blackout curtains, air con and a flatscreen TV in your room, but a set of aromatherapy products designed to speed you along to the land of nod. Where breakfast isn't just sausages, beans, bacon and eggs, but kippers, pancakes and muffins too. Admittedly probably not with icing on, but at the Crowne Plaza, we couldn't swear to it ...
Service was good, Hotel was fine, and the car collection and pick up worked a treat. A tad expensive maybe, but worth the convenience of collecting your car at the airport.Mr Jenkins (Gatwick Crowne Plaza)
Hotel room and restaurant/bar good. Car parking and collecting arrangements very good. Great value for moneyMr Fereday (Gatwick Crowne Plaza)
The drinks waiter could do with some training ( he poured the wine into the glass to the top and never returned). I had to send my main course back as it was dry and tough. I chose a different dish and had to send that back as well as was inedible. At 11pm as we climbed into be we discovered that the curtains did not close properly and let in the light that was being used to illuminate the hotel. You could hear water running around the pipes in the hotel and the pillows were very lumpy. Not good if you have to get up at 3:30am. By the time we found out the room had all these issues we were in our PJ's and were desperate to get at least 1 hours sleep before travellingMrs Strong (Gatwick Crowne Plaza)

Please note: The Crown Plaza is currently undergoing a stunning transformation. There is no longer a swimming pool at the hotel, however customers will now benefit from a new coffee lounge, an extended restaurant with private dining facilities, a brand new lounge bar and three new state of the art meeting rooms. Building works will be in affect from the the 1st June and due to end of October.
If you're after airport parking as well as a good nights sleep, the Crowne Plaza has teamed up with Purple Parking, formally Airparks, to offer our customers a great deal on a hotel and parking when booked together.
