Friendly place to stay but the rooms need some love and attention, the decor is very dated and the bed was old with linen and blankets when most people, including me, would p[refer duvets these days. there are signs of building work going on at this time, hope that they improve the place as it is in a great location...

5 minutes drive to North terminal Gatwick for under £40 a night, what more do you want? arrived about 5pm and left the following morning at 5am so can'r comment other than about the room. Internet in your room is chargeable, I don't think they make this clear on the Booking.com page (free in the lounge). Tea and coffee in...

I can't understand why there are so many terrible reviews about this place, i stayed here on several occasions as i was working in the local area and only booked it because it was the cheapest i could find so i wasn't expecting luxury accommodation, i had no problems with any of the rooms i stayed in, they were basic...

We stayed here just before flying off on honeymoon- we just needed a place to rest our heads and I must say that for the money you pay, the rooms are pretty good! They have tea making facilities, bed and shower with toilet- what more do you need? And for such a reasonable price so close to the airport, what...

It's in a nice location, average room since there is a dozen of lodges down Massetts rd all for around the same price. At 955 am we were told to vacate the room for check in at 10am, although we had been there 4 nights they still didn't hesitate to kick us out. We moved lodges after that.

When we first arrived, there was a note on the desk which said the guy had gone to do an airport run and would be back in 10 minutes, but it was actually about 20 minutes - bit annoying as we were very hungry and wanted to get food. When we got to our rooms ( a double and single)...

This is an absolutely awful B&B and would not recommend to anyone. It is filthy, smelly, the room was far too hot and could not be cooled down. The shower room was also awful. The man that was in charge was rude and obnoxious. When I booked this room with Laterooms there was nothing mentioned about paying for parking which...

We booked this hotel as we didn't want to leave extra early to get to Gatwick for our flight. We were given a family room for 2 of us. The room was large with a double bed and two single ones , the room was clean the bedding unlike previous comments was perfectly clean to. The shower was very small...

This was a late booking and cheap so can't complain too much, although I was unhappy to see a bed that looked like it had been slept in as the duvet was crumpled and creased, need less to say I slept on top of the bed. If you are a larger person avoid the top floor as the toilet space...

This accommodation was close to Gatwick Airport where we were changing planes. They sent a detailed note on how to reach them for a pickup. We were leaving for an early flight but luckily someone was coming in on a shuttle so we got a ride to the airport with them. Shuttle cost can be added to room. We were...
