Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lucy's mum Good service and good value
Made to feel welcome when checking in at reception. Room nice and clean. Had a bar snack, staff attentive without being intrusive. Have to agree with previous comments re: price of drinks. Reception very busy on return to collect car, but receptionist working efficiently on my queue meant no one had to wait too long. 2nd stay here, consider it good value.

Once again another excellent nights stay. It's the perfect place for gatwick airport. The park and stay is great value and on return this time as we arrived so late at night they were kind enough to put our over night bag in our room ready for us. Rooms are spotlessly clean & service is excellent.

Stayed in an executive room on way out and on way back. Car was securely parked and I didn't have to worry about it.
Not sure why it is was called "executive" room as it looked pretty standard hotel room to me. Still it was clean enough and everything worked.
Location is excellent and there is very little traffic or airport noise. Very comfortable bed.
Can't really fault it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by denism good price
overall a good hotel close to Gatwick airport,ideal for a night before you fly,we thought the price of a glass of wine and a pint of Lager in the bar a bit steep at £12.65.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BPGMP Overnight Stay
We stayed overnight and arranged for car parking for four days. Accommodation and food were good although the drinks were prohibitively expensive. I find this is the case with all Holiday Inns. However we enjoyed our stay and the car parking arrangements were quite efficient. Our car was parked out the front when we arrived back at the hotel after the four days. We had lunch in the Hub bar served by a very friendly and courteous barman, before driving home. Overall we enjoyed the stay and appreciated the friendly staff at reception and in the restaurants.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Skiidy Excellent Hotel, spoilt by bolshy bus driver
The Hotel had the usual high standard as expected. Although nothing to do with the hotel management, the driver of the airport shuttle bus (male, late fifties/early sixties) was extremely difficult, bolshy and rude to al the passengers getting on the bus, both at the Holiday Inn and the next pick-up the South Terminal. The Hotel Management should pass these comments to the relevant authorities as the behaviour just took the edge off a pleasant night's stay.

We were greeted at check-in with speed and courtesy and our room was available. The car was parked for the duration of our stay. Dinner was great as was the wine selection. We caught the 3.30am shuttle bus to North terminal with no problems as it was very punctual. A great stay thank you Holiday Inn and a relaxed and enjoyable start to our Holiday in Sicily..

i was very disappointed to find i had to pay for parking .as i stayed at the crown plaza before my holiday and did not have to pay .also when i did pay you for parking the would not let me out of the car park.the member of staff that came to help was rude .so as you can see i will not be staying in a holiday inn again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VS-G Perfect stopover
After a very late arrival at Gatwick this was very convenient stopover.
The staff were excellent, very helpful.
However as a Gold Priority Club member I would have expected an upgrade or at least some water in the room. Instead I had to request some. This was handled promptly by the staff concerned

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JPcanada Convenient and enjoyable
I appreciated the frequent shuttle bus service between the hotel and Gatwick airport, which is nearby. Hotel Reception employees were very busy, but found time to help me to use the free computer to print boarding passes and check e-mail. They also kindly gave me a map of the surrounding area so I could take a walk and not get lost. The (mostly Latvian) restaurant staff were unbelievably friendly and helpful. Don't order bottled water with your meal, though, as it is expensive. Tap water is free and good. Also, be aware that a 10 per cent tip is automaticaly added to your restaurant bill. Rooms are comfortable and quiet, although mattresses are a bit too soft if you have a bad back.. Wi-Fi was available but unreasonably expensive, so I didn't use it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 As Excellent As Ever!
We have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions and the service and value for money continues to be excellent.
The check-in was outstandingly organised, straight forward, clear and welcoming. The room was clean, comfortable and ticked all our "boxes". We didn't eat at the hotel as we prefer a local Italian restaurant, the evening prior to our vacation. The hotel made it very easy and convenient to exit the car park and re-enter free of charge and without hassle that we have experienced elsewhere.
The car parking, whilst on vacation, is conveniently at the hotel. The car was easily available on return and collection of the key was smooth and quick.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for Gatwick flyers and have already booked again this summer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharky54 First experience of Park, Stay and Go
After years of messing about with off site car parking, coaches and having friends take us to Gatwick we seem have found the perfect solution to travelling from Gatwick!
Found the hotel really easily, parked and were booked in quickly as RC members. Also recieved an upgraded room. Room was very comfortable with HD TV, complimentary snacks and fluffy dressing gowns.
We had a 3 a.m. start so went to bed early and slept well for 6 hours and found check out to be flawless..
Bus trip to south terminal took just a few minutes. A bit longer coming back as HI was last of the 3 hotels to drop off. Found car and were on the road less than an hour after landing. What could be better?
Didn't try the restaurant and were far to early leaving to have breakfast!
Overall a very relaxing experience. Thank you.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tristan100 Beware!
For some reason this hotel does not allocate the correct points to Priority Members, I booked a normal stay, just like any other HI hotel, but for this one it always seems to come up as "non qualifying stay" even though I pay full rate.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by patch1964 Restaurant debarcle and damaged car
we checked in mid afternoon and reserved a table for dinner at 7pm. We went upstairs and settled in.
Room is as you'd expect for a holiday inn, clean and quality facilities, although it was above the smoking area and the stink was noticeable even 5 floors up!!!
at around 6 we went down to have a drink before dinner which was pleasant in the lounge and at 7 we went to the restaurant. There was no one around at the door. A girl eventually appeared, by which time another group was waiting and said there were no tables. We reiterated that we had reserved and she went to get her manager. He appeared and was charm itself although he told me that people just walk in and sit down and he can't ask them to leave despite them having no reservation. I asked why the door wasn't staffed and he said they were very busy. I asked how that was our problem when we took the care to reserve a table and he merely shrugged.
He asked if we would eat in the lobby, where children were playing and the seats are unsuitable for eating and we declined. He stated he would arrange a table as soon as he could but it could be a while. It was in fact 45 minutes before we were seated. He did return to us twice in that time and went to the trouble of fetching a table from elsewhere.
The meal was fine when we were eventually served as the table appeared to have not been allocated to any member of waiting staff and then we spent a peaceful night in our room.
Our car was parked at the hotel for the week and the day before I had had it cleaned inside and out. On return the rear nearside wing has been scratched and inside it appears that a milky drink or ice cream has been spilt on the leather and nubuck seats and centre console. The fuel filler cap had also been opened for some reason.
I intend to complain officially when I find out how!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good value
My wife and I stayed for one night prior to a holiday in the Caribbean. I booked online which was easy. Directions to the hotel by car were good and parking was easy. It was busy at check in but we were soon in our room which was very comfortable and spacious. We had a good night's sleep and caught an early airport shuttle bus which ran frequently. The total cost of a night's stay and car parking for up to 15 nights was good value for money.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Suzycuty1 Room complaints, friendly staff. Overall view
The Holiday Inn was very clean, the staff friendly and helpful, but overall our stay was disappointing...we only had the pre booked breakfasts, which were very tasty and good value but thought other meals were quite expensive so ate elsewhere..We felt the décor looked nice, but found the chairs in the lounge/dining area were heavy to move and quite high to sit on at the tables. In our room, the toilet didn`t flush very efficiently, the wash hand basin plug had obviously broken at some time and had not been repaired properly...just another plug and chain added. I had to boil the kettle on the floor as the electric plug was so low, stretching the lead would have caused the kettle to topple off the tray on the shelf above. The beds were comfortable however, and we did sleep well.
On checking out, the receptionist asked how our stay had been and took our room complaints seriously. He said they would be reported to the Manager and kindly compensated us with free bus tickets to the airport!

This hotel has outstanding service and accommodation first class. My wife needs a disabled room and it is very comfortable for her needs. Returning from a flight with disruptions it was a haven of tranquility. the check in took 2 minutes and we were in and ready to unwind for a good few hours sleep. Keep it up Holiday Inns.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ricky99 Less than average Airport Hotel
As airport hotels go this is below average.
best part are the beds which are good sized and very comfortable. Noise is also kept to a minimum.
Restaurant menu is very limited and the staff unable to cope with anything outside what is printed. Poor choice of wines.
Will not stay here again.
