Its location also allows for quick and easy access into Crawley town centre where you will find restaurants, bars, cafes and shopping. A shuttle bus service runs to Gatwick Airport's North and South Terminals regularly.
All 8 day parking packages booked through Gatwick Reservations include on-site parking at the hotel. Arrive at the hotel and park your car. On the morning of your flight take a shuttle to the airport. On your return catch the shuttle back to the hotel and depart in your car from the car park.

Well located for All Terminals
"We got a little lost finding the hotel, but thankfully the sat nav came to the rescue! Hotel wise everything was fine and organised when we arrived, parking was simple and the guests were sympathetic to our unplanned late arrival letting us know to order food before the kitchen closed which was handy. The rooms were basic but clean and accommodated our 3 children nicely although a little cramped with all of our luggage!!"
