A budget hotel you can trust
Although the Premier Inn, London Gatwick Airport, A23 Hotel is one of the lower-priced Gatwick airport hotels, it has a high-quality feel and efficient, friendly staff. The hotel is immediately welcoming, with a helpful reception desk and a convivial restaurant and bar area which serves food and drinks throughout the day (and night!).
The Premier Inn Gatwick A23 Airport Way, formerly the Premier Inn Gatwick Central, is an excellent choice for those travelling to Gatwick airport by car. It's just a four-minute drive from junction 9 of the M23, which makes it extremely easy to reach from the motorway, and is also within easy reach of Gatwick airports Long Stay car park. Book your vehicle into the Gatwick airport Long Stay, just a few minutes drive away, and you can drop it off as soon as you arrive, leaving you to relax and start enjoying your holiday.
When we arrived the lift was out of order and we had to carry our heavy cases upstairs, which I understand can happen, but our stay didn't start well. The facilities were good, we had a drink in the bar area which was quite nice and the staff were pleasant and curtious. So off to bed for an early start to the airport in the morning. The room was ok, bit small but functional and the bed was a decent size and quite comfortable but every time we moved or turned, the bed would creak and squeak something awful, it was very annoying and kept us awake for quite some time. When we finally managed to drift off we were awaken by the occupants of the room above walking about in the early hours of the morning and it went on for a long while. The problem being they were wooden floors and you knew every move they made. This went on all through the night and totally ruined our sleep. When we went for breakfast in the morning we were asked if everything was ok by a member of staff, and I informed her of the problems that we experienced, she said she was sorry to hear this and could we provide some feedback to reception on checkout. When we went to checkout and provide feedback, she said it had been noted already and someone would be in contact by email but weâ€™ve heard nothingMr George (Premier Inn Gatwick A23 Airport Way)
