A budget hotel with style
The Skylane Hotel at Gatwick, Horley, formally Days Hotel, is a contemporary and stylish hotel at Gatwick that still manages to offer character that you wouldn't often find in a budget hotel. As you'd expect from quality three-star accommodation, the Skylane has all the basic facilities like a restaurant and bar, but also all the things the modern traveller could need: free wifi and a flat screen TV with Freeview in each room.
Easy to find, easy to park
The Skylane Hotel in Horley is close to the airport's motorway junction, which makes it quick and easy to get to. When it comes to parking, there are two options to choose from: on-site, meaning you can leave your car with the hotel for the duration of your holiday, or if you'd prefer to leave your car at the airport for a swift exit when you return, you can pair your stay with parking at one of Gatwick's Long Stay car parks. If you decide on this option, you can leave your car in the hotel's car park overnight and drive it to one of the Long Stay car parks in the morning.
The hotel was very clean and well kept, however, to get an evening meal would have meant eating past 8.30pm as there was a coach full of guests being catered for at the 'normal' mealtime. This was not convenient for us as we had a special needs adult with us and we could have done without going to a hotel a few minutes away to have something to eat. Having said that, breakfast was more than adequate. A good hotel.Mr Thornton (Skylane)

We recommend the Skylane for:
Families -Triple and quad rooms at the Skylane hotel are big enough to accommodate the average sized family. And you'll be glad to hear that many offer multiple (proper) beds - so you needn't fight over who gets the z-bed.
Couples - The Skylane hotel's double rooms are comfortable and classy. The Watershed restaurant, with its exposed beams and quality cuisine, offers a cosy setting in which to enjoy the first meal of your holiday.
Parking - What could be more convenient than leaving your car at the hotel when you jet off? The Skylane allows guests to park their vehicle in the on-site car park for the duration of their holiday and offers an on-demand shuttle service to and from the North and South terminals.
