This hotel is now closed

This hotel has gone into administration and is no longer accepting bookings.

For a similar stay at Gatwick, we recommend the Ramada Plaza or the Courtyard By Marriott.

A pint of real ale, traditional pub grub and beautiful British countryside nearby? Maybe not what you’re looking for in a holiday destination, but if you want a quintessentially British start to your holiday, the four-star Menzies (formerly the Menzies Chequers) is the hotel for you. Don’t take that to mean it’s old fashioned, though – the contemporary decor, modern restaurant menu and free wifi ensure it’s bang up to date. Good job, then, that there are rooms for up to five people, including four adults - no one should miss out on this Gatwick hotel.

Arrived at the hotel and they didn't have our booking, finally found us a room - twin not double, old fruit left in the bin!

Mrs Gower (Gatwick Menzies Chequers)

I thought where we stayed was very good and friendly staff. I would recommend the hotel to friends and I would stay there again

Miss Whitehouse (Gatwick Menzies Chequers)

holiday extras were good, as usual. airport hotels we used were typical, ie thin walls and floors, noisy 'guests' through the night, and some rooms in need of some TLC. meals however were quite good. would we use holiday extras again? of course!

Mr Bishop (Gatwick Menzies Chequers)

Menzies Gatwick a bit tired-needed upgrading. Not as good as Holiday Inn which we have used before but was fully booked.

Beaumont (Gatwick Menzies Chequers)

We were 2 oaps travelling home who arrived tired and weary after a long journey for an overnight stay. We found the Hotel very pleasant, staff extremely helpful and friendly.

The Menzies has a fresh, contemporary feel and a wide variety of rooms. Rooms can accommodate up to five people, including four adults, all sleeping on proper beds, and the large number of connecting rooms means even larger groups can be accommodated comfortably too.

If you're coming by car, the Menzies is easy to find. It's on a main road, just a few minutes from the M23, and it's easy to get to from the M25 at Reigate too. The hotel has a large car park with CCTV, barriers and a fence where you can park overnight, and there are a myriad of options when it comes to what to do with your car while you're away, from leaving it at the hotel to having it brought to the terminal when you return from holiday.

If you’re coming to Gatwick airport by public transport, Gatwick airport and Horley train stations are both a five-minute taxi ride away. There are regular trains to both stations from London.

To get to either the North or South terminal, the hotel can book you a taxi for a flat fee of just £6 per party of up to four people. The journey takes around 10 minutes, but allow plenty of time as there can be traffic on the busy A23.

The Menzies has a bar and restaurant with a modern a la carte menu, as well as an adjoining pub which serves simple meals and affordable drinks. There’s also free wifi throughout the hotel.

We recommend the Menzies for:

Families and groups - There's an impressive variety of rooms at the Menzies, with some sleeping up to five people, and 14 connecting rooms. Whatever size group you’re travelling in, there’s a room here that will fit you. Children are also welcome in both the pub and the restaurant at any time.

Food - Guests at the Menzies have two great options for food in the evenings. The pub serves simple pub grub, while the Brasserie restaurant offers a sophisticated, international menu. There’s also a 24-hour room service menu, and bar snacks and light bites are served all day in the lounge bar.

Parking - There are five options when it comes to where to leave your car. You can leave it at the airport itself, in one of the secured long stay car parks; at the hotel; or with Airparks, a secured car park just outside the airport. Alternatively, you can have your car collected from the hotel by parking company Maple Manor at Gatwick, taken to their secured car park, and brought to the terminal for you when you return from holiday.


You can check in from 2pm. You must check out by 11am.
