I was hoping to start the blog last night, but instead I chose to crash at 6:30PM and sleep for about 13 hours. It turns out it was the right decision - I feel fantastic today! I also discovered that there is free wifi in the atrium of my hotel - woo hoo!
Starting at the beginning, Brian drove me down to Calgary to catch my flight on …
Had a great day in Arundel yesterday. Great castle even if most of it is relatively new - the keep is still from the 11th century. Hard to believe a building has been standing that long.
Today was the slow bus trip to Brighton. Not the sunniest day, but with a lovely pebble beach and very cold water it wasn't as if we were going to be …
Well it had to happen eventually.
Woke up to a wet and bleak day.
Went down to the gym for a run. Then wondered town looking for breakfast.
Had a nice Bangladeshi dinner with Douglas last night.
tomorrow we head to Arundel castle.
Our flights from Phoenix, Denver and SLC were all timed to arrive in Minneapolis around the same time where we all boarded the same flight to London-Gatwick. No one had to rush and it was a fun reunion at the gate. Alene and Glen were the first to arrive and had fun watching us walk past them in the crowd. The 8-hour flight to England was supposed …
... the good business done in DC, Gilly's Craft Beer place and the Southern Hospitality at Amelia Island / Fernadina Beach. Some lows were my night out with Mr Drunk, Scabby Brit Tourists, the TSA ( I had to take my case to the dump), one too many on a school night (unprofessional) and missing Helen. Thanks for reading. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Arora Hotel Gatwick / Crawley
This is a first rate hotel with immaculate rooms and amenities. The staff are very polite and helpful and our whole visit and transfer to airport, pickup (late at night) worked like a dream. Highly highly recommended. Dont be put off by the fact it is in Crawley! The hotel is lovely and the beds are wonderfully comfortable. All in all an excellent experience. Would definitely return. It makes a perfect start to holiday with an early Gatwick flight.
A Wonderful Bright Hotel. Just Excellent!
This Lovely and Beautiful Hotel is Great! So Comfortable and Friendly surroundings. It deseves to be No 1 on this list. The rooms are perfectly sized and so clean. The Bed and furniture are attractive as well as the fantastic clean bathroom which I just loved! I hope to stay there again when I travel abroad. I am spolit for any other hotel now.
We booked two day-rooms for Dec 27 2004 for our family of four so that we could get some rest after a long transatlantic flight and before we headed into London to check in to our flat later that evening.
Best in Crawley/Gatwick area
I travel to Crawley quite regularly on business and have probably stayed in most hotels in the Crawley area. I think the Arora is best and haven't yet had a bad experience. Hotel is clean and modern and staff are pleasant and helpful.
We had to stop over near Gatwick for one night between arriving/departing flights and we were extremely pleased we chose this hotel (chosen because of other Trip Advisor comments). Everything was of a very high standard - decor and cleanliness were excellent. Friendly reception staff and good facilities. Only 10 minutes walk to Crawley's shopping mall and pubs and Restaurants. For price, location and quality I don't think you can do better.
Based on tripadvisor recommendations, we stayed here the night before flying back to the States. The low price made me a bit nervous but this was a pleasant surprise. Beautifully modern accomodations, clean, sleek, high tech. Staff extremely helpful; delicious restaurant food; top of the line for a fraction of the price of other hotels. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Arora Gatwick on your way in or out of London.
Okay, we all know how stressful it is to travel these days. Well do yourself a favor and stay at the Arora.
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for one night before flying from Gatwick on holiday. We had a very good deal with 15 days parking included. Without doubt this hotel stands head and shoulders above the others in the area. In the past we have stayed at the Worth, Effingham Park, Ramada Jarvis, Holiday Inn and Renaissance. Only the Renaissance came anywhere near the standards set by this hotel. The rooms are extremely well furnished with modern facilities including built-in iron and ironing board. When we were there there was a notice saying that all mattresses were being replaced with with some special type - can't remember which but very expensive. They even had a display of it in the foyer. The bar attached to the hotel was very reasonable and each evening has an hour or so when drinks are discounted. The restaurants inside the hotel however are expensive. It is only a short walk into the town centre where there is a wealth of the usual type bars and restaurants and even lower prices. There was a free taxi service to and from the airport. All in all we thoroughly recommend this hotel and will certainly stay there again. Miss this hotel at your peril! One peculiarity however is that the internal lifts don't go down to the underground car park - maybe a security issue.
Very nice hotel at reasonable price
My family and I stayed at this hotel before our flight home. Very nice. Very clean. Close to a train station. Very good hotel for the money.
