Modern room overlooking beautiful gardens. comfortable
Lovely location. Very rural. Comfortable bed, lovely food. Two lights did not work in the bedroom. More attention to detail in the public rooms. They have new decor, but none of the low level lighting seemed to work in the evening. Light some fires, it would improve ambience enormously.
V Friendly Staff
The staff were very helpful. Availability of wi-fi free of charge was welcome. The computer systgem
the staff were very helpful, the hotel was lovely and although in the annex our room was very comfortable and clean
Excellent spacious and comfortable room. Room service breakfast failed to arrive, so I had to go and find my own.
Great Staff. Extremely helpful & Friendly. Fantastic country setting and lovely mannor with picture perfect buildings and grounds. Bed was springy, small and mattress sagged in the middle. There was no powerpoint in bathroom for hairdryer, shaver etc. Staff advised of no toilet roll holder and offered to fix immediately. Limited tv stations. No fridge.
Lovely grounds extremely limited dining facilities. My room was below expectation.
The facade of the building and grounds One of our group was put into a room not prepared from the previous day Staff were poor - rooms poor - grossly overpriced
The Evening meal was excellent. In particular the Steak which was outstanding The main building is beautiful, I was disappointed however to be given a room in a separate block which looked more like a 60's holiday camp. I am glad it was not a romantic holiday booking! - there was no sign of this in any photographs.
So convient in the south terminal at gatwick. Clean and everything you need for one night. Didn't hear any planes, which I was worried about.
Very comfy bed and very friendly staff! Shower wasn't separated from the rest of the bathroom, so the entire bathroom floor was soaked.
Just as advertised, comfortable and functional room at an affordable price, just a couple of minutes away from airport security as well as train station. The space available is quite tight, so don't expect to 'enjoy' it much (even though bed is very comfortable and shower is very nice), this is no leisure hotel, but rather 'get it done' style accommodation. After using the shower, the floor is wet so if you need to use the toilet after you'll be stepping on water and then out again onto the carpet. Again, functional but less than ideal. Maybe the floor should be slightly tilted in the shower so it drains/dries quicker.
it was IN the airport terminal The terminal is DEPRESSING. No WINDOWS! It’s like a little luxury prison cell. There was no private area in the hotel to do online work, went to one of the more human feeling pub-like restaurants.
The lovely atrium and the easy access to Gatwick airport together with helpful and friendly staff.
Staff were friendly. Room very clean. Beds comfortable, not sagging in my middle as some are. Excellent location for Gatwick airport travellers. Good restaurants. Priced reasonably. They view! But cannot help that. But the large windows were nice.
Ease and access to airport None
The Softel is less than five minutes walk from the Gatwick check-in desks via a slopped covered walkway. The staff were efficient and the atmosphere throughout warm and friendly. An excellent place to spent the before an early flight, I would definitely stay again.
The best part was the access to the airport which allowed us to wake up and check in easily. The location was fantastic and the staff were very very helpful. Will definitely use this hotel everytime i am flying out of gatwick.
location to the terminal restaurant was expensive
location was why I selected this hotel. location was excellent Very expensive!
Ease of accessing the internet
There wasn't anything not to like. We arrived at 7.00 pm and left at 5.00 a.m. Did not like the restaurant. We booked a table and the food was not up to the standard we would have expected.
The location is excellent. Staff were efficient but a little arrogant. Problems connecting to the internet in the room. The connection was very slow. The location of the room safe at floor-level is ridiculously inconvenient. The safe did not work. I'll try the Hilton next time.
Convenient location on airport Price of room service breakfast
The young man who picked me up at the airport and checked me in was extremely helpful in pointing me toward some of the nearby sights I would otherwise have missed. Entire staff was friendly, helpful and just all-around nice. I loved the community, and the hotel's location, and the convenience of the airport transfers made entire visit outstanding. I would absolutely stay there again, and would highly recommend to others.
Very reasonably priced.
Lovely boutique hotel, clean, fresh with lots of character, will stay again.
friendliness of staff and Pub down stairs. I suggest people choose the continental breakfast!
Ease of getting around, helpful and friendly staff, generally quiet location
easy access to gatwick airport with pick up/drop off by the hotel. after europe did find it rather expensive to eat and bar prices very high, but this is england!
An excellent hotel. Superb location with a fabulous atmosphere. Great staff.
Easy access to the airport with complimentary shuttle to and from. A nice breakfast included with room price.
I liked the convenient airport transportation. Relaxing and friendly lounge in which to have a drink. Room was comfortable, clean and warm. Great place to stay to catch a flight at Gatwick. No complaints.
Since we didn't need to use their 5 GBP shuttle service to Gatwick, their price was goodl. Bar nice but empty, did not try the food. Proximity to Six Bells pub was the best feature. Parking tight and tricky.
Location and very comfortable bef Everything is fine for me
Location and staff very old decor in room and bathroom, the bed was uncomfortable, missing towels and only one set of pillows were provided
The convenience of the location, the beds were very comfortable. Our air conditioner was broken when we arrived and the room was incredibly hot. The engineer was very nice and apologized quickly and requested a room change. It then took concierge a further hour to relocate us (10 rooms down the hall). At which point our children were completely starving and exhausted. The food in the garden restaurant buffet was mostly good, though expensive, but we were seated in a dark corner because we were a family, where the staff were already setting the tables for breakfast around us. Service was polite but very slow and waiters were unaware of the fact that children ate for free.
Great location A little pricey!
Proximity to airport The hotel is terribly maintained. Had to switch rooms twice due to bathroom related maintenance issues. They finally put me in a decent room on the executive lounge, which was OK but even that had its issues. AC was terrible and the spacing between the bathroom sink and faucet was very awkward, making it difficult to effectively wash your hands. All in all a pretty bad hotel. The staff was nice though.
The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. We could only find one working ice machine in the hotel. The bed bugs we encountered weren't very pleasant either.
Restaurant way over priced. Not many options for a reasonable, casual meal.
Our reservation was not in the system. They did not give us access to Internet for our booking but we understood that free Internet would be included based on the booking criteria.
The hotel is tired. Thankfully, I was upgraded to a newer room. Mattress is super hard. To get to the room, you must walk tons. The hotel needs serious renovation. Because options are limited for overnight flight.
The best part of this hotel is that it is so close to the London Gatwick hotel it may as well be a part of it. Very convenient! There could be a few more amenities to may the stay more memorable.
excellent food and good service
Staff who appeared more concerned about our comfort, satisfaction & value for money, than how much we spent! Small room
Beautiful place, very helpful staff - and lots of happy memories from the past! Not really a "not like" - but we did tell them that it was our Golden Wedding anniversary - and our room was three flights up, with no lift!!
Standard of room comfort, cleanliness etc Price too steep, especially G and T in the evening and coffee pot in the morning coming to about nineteen quid!
Excellent breakfasts Hotel in need of better cleaning and overall refurbishment
Quite room and location Certain requests for room service and cancelling early morning call did not happen. We did not get the items ordered and got a call when we cancelled this, rather frustrating.
Peace and quiet
The hotel staff were very helpful and tried their best under what appeared to be difficult conditions ie not enough staff on duty . the waiter in the bistro seemed to be taking orders, serving food and drinks, all on his own. He was extremely polite and friendly but couldn't cope with all this and a very slow kitchen. The food, when it came, was very good Waited hours for food to be served in the bistro, on both the fri and sat night. Menu in the dining room wasn't inspiring.noise from the functions stopped at midnight but was very loud until then ( rooms near the function room not sound proofed ). Grouting in the bathroom not to the high standard I expected from a Mercure hotel.
This Hotel is first class - and the Restaurant & Brasserie of a particularly high standard - congratulations to all who made our stay so comfortable and successful. We have already "well advertised" the Burford Bridge - and we will return! Slight disappointment in being accommodated in the Annex - due to my partial disability - however I did just cope with the garden steps and the annex location was peaceful & pleasant. The fact that there were wedding functions at that time was perhaps the reason for our accommodation being in the annex - which was understandable
I was so disappointed following check in that I can't remember anything that stood out. We arrived late following our wedding. The man on reception talked about protecting his eyes with glasses and didn't even say congratulations! (Yes, I was in a white dress and my husband was in a suit so it was prettly obvious). It was a shame as we had felt so special all day, After checking in it just left us feeling a bit flat - it would have been nice to have been welcomed. Also, we weren't told the times for breakfast and I could find no information in the room telling us. After the experience at check in I didn't want to call and ask so we took a chance and arrived a couple of minutes before 10am. The waitress who spoke to us was abrupt and acted as if we were inconveniencing her. All in all, not very good or welcoming.
The staff were friendly and courteous and very helpful. Food was good and rooms comfortable and clean.
Very close to airport Lack of check in service
The location is great, rooms clean and staff helpful. Waiting for the lifts became quite a pain. I was lucky on the 2nd floor so could take the stairs, but even at 5am it was difficult. Wanted to try the restaurant too, but very busy - would have had to wait over an hour - lucky there's lots nearby or across at the south terminal.
Easy to find location from website and is signposted when on the approaching road. Polite friendly staff and clean hotel.
It's in a great central location, so you can go out in Crawley & eat/drink/shop etc. Even though it's next to the railway line, we didn't hear the trains. Hotel decoration lovely, very clean, very helpful staff and it has excellent facilities. Our room was very spacious & they'd thought of everything. En-suite was huge compared to other hotels, it had a separate bath & shower. Lots of thought had been put into the design & comfort of the room/hotel. Really pleased with the hotel & we'd definately stay there again, especially if we were taking our daughter, as there are connecting rooms. Also have a shuttle bus to Gatwick airport which is really close by, but again didn't hear any noise from the planes.
the mattress and bedding was excellent paying for the parking
close to station,high standrad of facilities, excellent food.
The staff is very friendly and hard working The trains are very loud
Easy to access train from hotel, airport and city of London. Staff was friendly and helpful. Easy walking distance to a local mall.
Convienent location Dreadfull catering & and catering staff
Charged for 2 breakfast but was alone. Should have asked me first before charging.
Clean and wide room very low water pressure from the tap
wide and clean room The reservation through Arora hotel web site does not work.
Generally good,but WiFi sign in system a hassle and card swipe door keys real pain rarely if ever worked first time and usually took 3-4 tries at least.
Nice rural location in a nice building I feel that the rooms are a little of a let down for the price and setting. Fairly basic rooms a valence sheet to cover the divan base would appear the appearance of the room. Bathroom was clean but lacked a fresh feel to it.
I was very impressed with this hotel. It was a joy to see that the photo's on the website were not misleading and the setting was amazing.
very attractive hotel, room was very nice and clean, room service food was good, great price was not informed when i booked that the pool etc is only for over 18s except for a few hours a week - my son had been looking forward to swimming, would suggest that they put a couple of hours a day aside for under 18s staying at the hotel
The Hotel is very comfortable and the gardens are lovely. The Staff were helpful and efficient but you never felt that your privacy was invaded by them.
Loads of character, beautiful gardens and helpful staff. Dinner service is mainly for conferences and not so good for solo diners. Expensive.
Charge for WIFI internet access. Many hotels, some much smaller, do not charge.
leisure facilities room too hot
All round excellent. Clean, modern facilities in a period building that still retains its character. Excellent gym and pool. Best was the staff - when the PCs went down in the business centre I was offered use of the computer behind the reception. It's a pity I wasn't there in daylight so coundn't enjoy the lovely gardens.
Early check in, location was great Bed was quite soft. Check out time was 10.30 which was quite early.
Good facilities, friendly and helpfull staff.
restful & quiet atmosphere,giving us time to unwind after a hectic 6week tour of the U.K.. Staff were helpful & very pleasant,& food was great.
The room was very clean and comfortable. The que for checking in was quite long and we waited a while.
TV control doesn't work
Convenient location Noise of air conditioning system, inability to get fresh air into room, always having to wait for attention at reception
Absolutely aweful service, terrible customer relations, poor food.. no choice. Room service was a joke! Had to help other customers...
First time I have had to pay for a shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel. The whole point in staying near the hotel is that normally you get free courtesy transport
Very close to Gatwick Airport. Helpful, friendly staff. Very nice hotel. As window didn't open, had to leave air conditioning on all night which was very noisy, so didn't sleep very well.
It was fair stay but not comfortable......the service must improve ...also the menu must be changed and finally the stafff must inform their customers about the breakfast time,we asked the reception and they said breakfast is served till 10.30pm and when we came down at 9.30..they advsied that it's finished... service and menu....
the room was clean and tidy on arriving at the hotel you have to pay for your car parking even for the time you are staying in the hotel. The hotel even those it has a 4 star rating there is no one to take your bags and show you to your room
Location poor from airport ....No Air con in rooms and windows couldnt open .Water cold in shower ...a dreadful experience for a Ramada Hotel .
very clean / friendly staff limited wine list that was overly expensive.
event coordinator for luncheon was excellent and deserves this special mention restaurant staff reluctant to book after 9 30 pm even though hotel residents
The setting and the building TV in Suite was dreadfull
venue was great, food was good Portions at the restaurant are small but the food is good! Ask for a room with a view - its great (otherwise you will only get to see the carpark!)
staff and food
I Thought the rooms were lovely. The breakfast area was also very nice I thought the general decor needed attention, throughout the hotel. Lots of paint flaking on woodwork. The Bar was very disappointing, the furniture was in poor repair ,and for such a huge room it was soul less. Manybe the Hotel is in need of a renovation in reception rooms.
I found the peace and tranquility of the surrounding area was complemented by the atmosphere and experience i found within the hotel. It was a most relaxing and peaceful break enhanced by excellent facilities.
The room was excellent, but the restaurant was very disppointing - slow , poor service - waiter showed no interest and no atmosphere. It was so slow I forgot which course I was on. I would stay at gotel again but not use the restaurant for an evevning meal. Restaurant service
The surroundings to the hotel were very picturesque and the inside of the hotel was beautiful. The library and main hall were particularly stunning. The view from our room over looked the car park and leisure centre which wasn't the best considering the hotel is situated among acres of countryside. As we were a young couple visiting the hotel i felt a little out of place amongst some of the older members of staff and residents. This is only because of a few instances when I politely said hello while passing them and in return was given nothing but an uninpressed scowl. Quite frankly my girlfriend and I found this very rude! Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay.
Staff very friendly & helpful Nothing
unfortunately did not have a lot of time to experience the hotel but were i able to get a good rate there again would go back possibly for longer next time
Friendly and helpful staff, good service, hotel facilities clean and in good order, no problems. None apart from the weather!
Close proximity to Gatwick. Also had a train stop close by. The bed was not so comfortable. Very lumpy.
Easy to book, location was excellent for walk into town and proximity to Gatwick. Lodgings were clean and in good order The bed was one of the most uncomfortable I have ever slept in.
This hotel is excellent for flights from Gatwick.the Management and staff are both friendly, courteous and helpful
free parking charged extra for credit card although not stated in booking.com , heating was not working , Unclean room , internet down , early checkout and staff not friendly
Everything provided that was needed and rooms clean. No. other than we had to lift our cases into the car taking us to airport (we are not young people) but the driver was female so there was no way round it.
Pleasant and friendly staff; Easy to find location; Enjoyable breakfast; Generally, very clean throughout. Guest House staff didn't know we had booked and it was a bit embarassing on arrival; Very cold in the bedroom, with no portable heater available, when asked.. Decor, is 'dated' and tired throughout some of the Guest House
near the airpot cheaper then going to London and overnight rather old matresses on beds
Clean - nice room with ensuite - quiet - friendly
they kindly allowed me to store my bags between check-out and my late afternoon flight. the bathroom was very clean. lovely house. •WIFI: the wifi internet was super slow, and then shut down entirely. unacceptable in a developed country. •DIRTY: there was a old fan in the room that turned on, but didn't blow any air. the wiring around the fan was entirely coated in dust. disgusting. it clearly had not been cleaned in months, which shows a lack of attention to detail. •CHECKOUT: checkout is at 10am. considering people have afternoon flights, would it really kill them to allow guest to checkout at 11am or noon? i never heard of a 10am checkout at such a small guest house. •ODD: the owner quoted a 7 pound taxi to the airport but it was 8. i don't care about the money, but this again shows a lack of attention to detail considering they must send several people to the airport daily. not knowing the price of such a core part of the stay seems strange.
My daughter and I stayed. Lovely place!
Welcoming and helpful Main road noise in ground floor room.
clean comfortable room near good pub woth good menu
Closeness to transport and able to use laptop in room nice and clean and good choice of breakfast (Not any) only that it is not a hotel but a guest house and on arrival from air port on asking about the gatwick house hotel no one knew there was a hotel called that on that I did not mind it being a guest as it was just as good
The warm friendly attitude of the owners and staff when my arrival flight was delayed and the welcome next morning to an excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.
This is a little gem. Very close to Gatwick without airport noise. The innkeepers are wonderful, the rooms super clean and comfortable, close to a charming pub that serves hearty fare until 10pm. Wonderful.
The free collection and return to Gatwick airport was excellent and well organised with all the information about freephone and telephone number arriving by email. It is a family run hotel and everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were advised to reserve a table at the nearby 'pub' which we did and where we had a delicious evening meal. The breakfast was excellent and the conservatory very pleasant for relaxing in.
Brand new hotel, only open three days when we arrived. No problem with late arrival. Good english and buffet breakfast. Right on site at Chessington World of Adventures. A great place to spend the weekend and I would imagine a great weekday hotel for business visitors to the area. Night team still learning and had to deal with influx of late arrivals. Found someones laptop in our room which was a little worrying at the time but its new and these things happen. Would stay there again.
The swimming pool was fantastic Enjoyed the fact two tv's. Nice to have the childrens area sectioned off from the adults. It would have been nice to have had a sofa in the room instead of a chair. Also toiletries would have help (Shampoo, Conditioner etc. No hot water in the morning.
Very helpful and friendly staff, didn't had a fridge in the room to store my baby food but staff helped to keep them in the concierge fridge and delivered bottles as per requested. Comfy, clean and spacious room size and bathroom. Great place for the family to spend the weekend. Would definitely go back again
We have stayed in hotels allover the world and have never found staff so friendly, courteous and helpful. It was an absolute joy and we will return Not enough Coffee in the room!
The view of the zebras and antelope, and a section of the zoo opening to guests early evening. A real treat. This hotel is good to stay in as a one off. The food was very pricey, I paid for a continental breakfast £12 for a bowl of cereal and a slice of toast.
lovely location and spacious accomodation
Having a pillow is a great idea. It was set in a lovely location and everything was clean and new. It would have been good if plainer snacks were available in bar and restaurant and some staff were difficult to understand .
Excellent food, good swimming pool, friendly staff and within walking distance of Chessington World of Adventures
The hotel was extremely clean, the staff efficient and friendly and the whole safari theme was wonderful. The outside decking and rooms overlooking the safari park were terrific. The pool and spa were lovely and our room was stunning. We will be back again. The breakfast was fabulous but very expensive
Nice themed hotel ideal for trips to chessington. Super friendly staff try hard to make sure you enjoy your stay. THere were also lots of little safari extras. Overpriced food in the restaurant.
due to this nice garden and anchient atmosphere cold floor in a bathroom
The personal attention and quality of accomodation
I was very late coming in , but I had a very warm reception and was taken to my room very quickly , it was very homely and I was so sorry I only spent one night . My phone was ringing all the time , only to discover somehow calls were coming to my room not reception . Also the cold water didn't work in the shower . I did let them know
wonderfully comfortable beds, gorgeous bathrooms. Very helpfull staff, and the most excellent breakfast I've ever had! Needs to have lighting that comes on when you walk round to the suits in the dark.
A beautiful hotel set in great location. Will have to take the wife there sometime!!
Every thing. The atmosphere. Just every thing is perfekt for a weekend stay with your wife
Great hotel...all very good.
Truly one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. The staff is extremely kind and professional, and my room was magniificently decorated. The bathtub was even big enough for me, and at 6'3 that's rare to find. The surrounding neighborhood is quiet, and the hotel grounds are gorgeous and well kept. I hope to have a chance to stay again someday for more than a one night visit.
Fantastic setting, well furnished rooms and great service
It is a very convenient setting for Gatwick airport but the actual building and surroundings are beautiful. the room was very stylishly furnished. a luxurious bathroom and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. A real gem.
Friendly staff, attentive and efficient. No milk in the room for tea or coffee.
