Club room- worth the extra but....

Booked the Club Room for an overnight stay on way to collect parents from airport. Rooms are well presented and have an air of exclusivity due to separate area within hotel. That said, it is one heck of a walk! Gym was adequate, pool ok, but just for lounging really. Club room was fantastic and staff were amazing. Only downside was that the windows offered absolutely no sound proofing. Had it not been for the effects of the complimentary alcoholic drinks in the Club Lounge, this could and probably would have been an issue. I would wholeheartedly recommend the hotel but be warned if you have an early start and good nights sleep is essential.

Good location close to Crawley

The hotel was very good. We had been booked into a double bed room, but my wife had injured her shoulder during our trip, and we had to have a twin room for her to sleep without being disturbed. The staff were very good in finding us another room. The only downside was being charged for internet services - most hotels now provide free WIFI.

overnight at Gatwick

a good 15 min ride to airport- 15 pounds for 3 with luggage each way, hotel does have a less expensive shuttle, 9 pounds for three. If need hotel at airport, go with Hilton or Marriott Courtyard right at Gatwick

Royal Scam

One night was enough for me to vow never to set foot inside this hotel again. My unhappy experience began by being told that the "WiFi available" in my Queen Deluxe room meant that WiFi could be had for an additional £10! "Queen Deluxe," by the way, is more like "Queen Ordinaire," for most other hotels. No outlets by the bed, meant that I had to run an extension cord from the other end of the room to run my CPAP machine for my sleep apnea. At no time did anyone at the Front Desk or in Management make any effort to try and address my concerns. Even the email regarding my "Guest Comments" was tone deaf , to wit: "Our wi-fi is provided by a third party provider, therefore chargeable. There are a number of facilities within the hotel which we appreciate are free at some other outlets. But in order to keep our rates competitive it is a cost we currently cannot absorb." Having just spent three weeks in numerous hotels and B&B throughout the Western Hebrides, Orkney Islands and North Highlands, where not only was WiFi "available," it was free. The "chicken arribiata" tasted like it was straight out of a deep freeze microwave dinner - oh and they automatically tack-on a 10% service fee, even if you are just ordering dinner from the barman!! And they expect you to provide a credit card to tie-up £50 in preauthorization, even though the room was prepaid and I had arranged an early morning check-out. The 6:00AM wake-up call was late. My bags were supposed to be collected at 6:30AM. At 6:40 I started dragging my stuff down the hall, where I was finally met by my indifferent bellhop, who could not be bothered to assist in loading the bags into the cab, evening with me waving a tip at him. When even the cabbie gives that "you too" look of sympathy, you know the Crowne Plaza is a Royal Scam!!

In Transit Stay

I overnighted at the hotel for a connecting flight from Gatwick Airport. I stayed in Rm 108 and the view from my window was a spot light which forced me to keep the curtains and toilet/bath door closed in order to get some sleep. The dinner was above average.

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

My preference is to take a taxi to and from this hotel; cost is approximately 10GBP either way versus 3GBP by bus. This bus trip is long, times are not reliable, also the bus stop at the North Terminal is a 5-10 minute walk along an uncovered pavement(depending on your age and luggage). Prepare for a wetting if the weather is unfavourable and shelter in cold tent-like bus stops.
