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 ...
I booked the Crowne Plaza Hotel near Gatwick for one night pre flight and seven nights parking whilst in Spain. (I have used this facility on previous trips). However, upon arrival at the hotel I was told by reception that they had not got my reservation, although I had a Holiday Extras booking reference. After 20 to 30 minutes delay the manager at the hotel sorted out a room for me, but blamed Holiday Extras for the booking problem. I wasn't offered a coffee, drink or any other compliment to compensate for the delay. (not good, as I explained to the hotel reception that my wife and I had had a 2-3 hour hold up on the M25 on way, due to an accident ahead of us on our journey). On return from holiday my car was the hotel, but was dirty and covered in large quantities bird droppings (photo' taken), which I had to have jet washed off prior to my journey home. In all not a great experience on this occasion. I and my wife are frequent travellers and have used Holiday Extras a lot, but I will certainly be looking at alternative hotel & parking arrangements for future journeys.Mr Lockwood ( Crowne Plaza)
