Stayed here en-route to our holiday and parked the car for a week. Great place and very quiet which was a pleasant surprise so close to Gatwick. We will use again next time we fly from Gatwick. Just need to find another holiday.

A bit in the middle of nowhere and the entrance isn't well lit so beware if you arrive in the dark. However, its a large country house hotel which was a £10 taxi ride to the airport. Bed comfortable, loads of hot water and parking around the grounds (although many spaces under trees). At under £100 for staying and 2 weeks parking it was ok for the price. Went to the Greyhound pub about 2 miles away to eat. Its a Hungry Horse and pretty diabolical, but ok for a quick cheap eat.

We stayed in this hotel prior to a flight. The hotel is beautiful. We stayed in a four poster bed room and it was fantastic. Very comfortable. All positive stuff cannot grumble. If I had to moan about anything was just the fact that the heating was too high however that is the only negative I can find. Good parking for airport also. Very reasonably priced.

My Mrs and I stayed here the night before our holiday. Was sold it through Thomson along with parking. What a dump! My first impression was what have we got here. Very out of date and tired. Went to our room and decided to have a few drinks and a meal to start the holiday mood. This did not happen. Ordered gammon and when I received my food it was clearly nothing more than sweaty packet ham bought from the local shop. As I enjoy cooking, this made me furious!!! When I refused the meal and told the waiter that I ordered gammon, I got yes that’s sliced gammon!!! Yea, bloody ham!!! Never heard that before. So then decided on the scampi. After the first bite, I decided to just give up. Then decided to go back to the room as my Mrs was wanting a hot bath. Unfortunately you wouldn’t want to bath your dog in there. It was disgusting as you can see by the pictures. Also broken lamp shades. Dead bugs on the bed and then noticed stains on the bedding in the morning after her legs were bitten in the night. You couldn’t pay me money to stay here again. I also refused to leave my car keys with the hotel in which they insisted on as I felt that if they couldn’t look after their hotel and us as guests, they probably wouldn’t bother about my car!!! Never again!

We stayed overnight before our holiday and left the car for 2 weeks. Hotel is very poor. Room very basic and not the cleanest. No help with bags upstairs and no lift service. The hotel also has function rooms which it had hired out for 2 parties on the night we stayed! We got very little sleep as our room was right above the parties and they 'couldn't' move us when we complained. The party guests spent a couple of hours taking photos of themselves and numerous children on the stairway which meant it was blocked and you could not get up or down! We definitely would not stay here again or recommend it. Parking is dreadful. They have no system and you may have to leave the car up on the actual garden area surrounding the hotel. Finally, on collecting the car it was absolutely covered with bird muck and debris from the trees. So bad you could not see out of the windows!

This is a very run down hotel with below average food and staff that can barely muster a smile. There is no help and no lifts for heavy baggage. I stayed over night with 11 day parking. The car was moved into a wooded area (by the hotel) and when i returned my car had looked like it had trees growing out of it !!! My car was dirty, covered in leaves and broken branches, and when confronted the staff shrugged it off !!! see photos !!!

Ok let’s kick off with the negatives. Reception short and sharp, no lifts or help available for getting luggage upstairs. Hotel very tired in places, food fairly bland rooms a bit grubby and no blinds on our bathroom window which overlooked main car park. But early morning taxi pickup worked well as did the return and at £10 each way good value. That coupled with a cheap overnight stay 15 minutes from the airport this is very much “ you get what you pay for”. So just grin and bare it.

We stayed overnight here before travelling to Gatwick. Our travel agent booked us in with airport Parkin for two weeks. On arrival the cars were parked all over the verges and driveway so it was very chaotic. We had two suitcases plus hand luggage, our bedroom was up on the second floor then up more stairs down a corridor up more stairs down some stairs and along a corridor (no lift). And no help from and staff member so after driving for 5 hours it’s not what you want. Our room was above the function room which was noisy until midnight and we had to be up at 5am. So this hotel is not what I would call the ideal hotel for the airport.

We booked this hotel as very good value and close to Gatwick airport. Very nice hotel plenty of parking spaces friendly staff. There is a bar area there and a nice restaurant. We decided on just bar snacks and they were good as well. Would definitely book again

This place has the potential to be amazing. The grounds and outside of the building are beautiful but the inside is tired and seems very lonely. Check in with a rather blunt receptionist wasn't the best. We had three rooms for our large family group. Our room smelled terrible - I think it was damp and even leaving the windows open didn't get rid of the smell. The food at dinner was very nice - this chef is wasted here! If you are booking taxis to the airport, please beware that either the hotel or the taxi company (or both) are very unreliable. We booked two taxis for 6am - only one turned up. The taxi company swore the hotel had only booked one but we were present when the receptionist called them to book. Our driver said it happens all the time. Don't even bother using them on the way back from the airport - they couldn't fit us in for another hour so we went with the airport based company - £16 instead of £10 but a spotless Mercedes and a very lovely driver.
