from the airport
The hotel that makes a holiday destination of Crawley
It's Crawley's most celebrated building: a 17th-century, Grade II listed former coaching inn. The Ramada Crawley Gatwick just oozes history and character. It's also the only Gatwick airport hotel in the centre of Crawley, so perfect if you dont want to spend your evening on the edge of the airport.
Go out before you go away
The Ramada Crawley is within easy walking distance of numerous pubs, restaurants and shops, including the large County Mall shopping centre, and also has two on-site restaurants and a lively bar. If youre up for getting the holiday started with a night out before you jet off, then this is the hotel for you.
nice hotel and good location,but unfortunately this hotel has bedrooms where smoking is allowed and we were allocated one of these rooms to our discust.We thought this was illegal but apparently not,my wife and I are non smokers therefore we hopeyou understand our feelings.Mr Ward (Gatwick Ramada Crawley-Gatwick)
No information about the Sussex block at the hotel, which has several floors and no lifts! Don't rely on a wake up call at this hotel, as the chances are, it won't happen as the phone is not guaranteed to be working, and if the staff don't get a reply they don't try again!Mrs Qualey (Gatwick Ramada Crawley-Gatwick)
It might be an idea to update promotional information and in-house booklets to acknowledge there is no restaurant available. However, the breakfast facility is good and Jenny was most helpful.Mrs Miller (Gatwick Ramada Crawley-Gatwick)
The rooms in the back wing are defiantly in need of a good clean and refurbishment. Having no restaurant facilities and bar are also not very goodMr Hackin (Gatwick Ramada Crawley-Gatwick)
Everything was fine, staff were very helpful and we got a good nights sleep at both ends of our journeyMrs Harries (Gatwick Ramada Crawley-Gatwick)

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.
