(3 star hotel)
including 8 days parking
from the airport
Only a mile from the airport
For fantastic value airport hotel at Gatwick, you can't beat newly refurbished Gatwick Travelodge with parking at our customers' favourite car park - Purple Parking. It's a hotel name you know at an affordable price, just a mile from the airport. Best of all, the hotel has a friendly bar/cafe with prices you won't believe! Even with Purple Parking's great parking package included, you'll still save.
Having booked the holiday inn for an overnight we were looking forward to an evening meal before an early start. To our disappointment there was only a buffet restaurant with an appalling array of glutinous skin covered sauce dishes, soggy pizza and various unidentifiable concoctions. It transpired that the menus in the rooms were for show only as they do not provide any of the food advertised. However I can highly recommend the Ye Olde Six bells, excellent steak good atmosphere and reasonable price. Reception staff at the hotel were polite and helpful though rooms could do with a little more furniture. It looked as if the sofa had been stolen. Regrettable in good conscience I cannot recommend this hotel to those who ask.Mr Hunt (Gatwick Travelodge)
we would have preferred proper glasses in the room instead of plastic other wise clean tidy ideal for an early flight after a long driveMr Newton (Gatwick Travelodge)
Be more upfront with additional parking costs. Parking cost Â£8 on top of already paid amount. Did not found out until after we booked and looked closely at terms and conditions.Miss Raymond (Gatwick Travelodge)
There was nothing wrong with the service you provided. But the hotel was terrible. It was dirty and had to wait for a long time at reception until we was served.Mr Efde (Gatwick Travelodge)
Booked a twin room - a double bed and a camp bed does not count as a twin, I expect 2 proper beds! It was just as well we are friends and don't mind sharing! Also think Â£8 for parking on top is very steep for 1 night. Walls also pretty thin and could hear into the corridor. Needs updating and modernising, shower broken.Miss Harris (Gatwick Travelodge)
