    Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis London Gatwick Airport Crawley

    Smart Clean Airport Hotel


    We stayed at this hotel on March 27th, for one night, before an early morning flight from Gatwick.

    It is modern, very clean, perfect for an overnight stay.

    The bathroom was definately the best feature - the shower was lovely - powerful and hot. The room was basic but clean and modern.

    We found it to be quiet and had a good nights sleep.

    We had a snack in the bar downstairs, which was fine. They serve snacks 24hrs, which is a bonus.

    We didn't use the shuttle bus, as we drove to the airport, which was just a few minutes away, but they do offer the service.

    Other people mentioned the lack of pillows. We only had two pillows, but on enquiring at reception, they were quick to supply us with further pillows.

    Overall we were very impressed. I've stayed at a number of hotels in this area when flying from Gatwick, and this is definately the best hotel i've been to, and at 49.95 for a double room it's fantastic value.

    I booked this hotel after reading the reviews on tripadvisor, and i'd recommend you to do the same!

    Interesting, and different


    Me and a colleague stayed at the Ibis for 3 nights whilst on business in Astral Towers situated opposite. Ideal location for what we wanted and was in good proximity to the airport. The shuttle bus was quick to appear and we had no problems with anything throughout the trip. The bathroom is really good and was an unexpected extra as the price we paid was extroadinarily cheap for such a good hotel. we will be staying again.

    Excellent value


    This was a very pleasant experience and I would recommend it to anyone catching an early flight. It was also the least expensive place I stayed in England. The hotel seemed new and the decor was IKEA meets Holiday Inn. The room was spacious and comfortable and I loved the shower and bathroom faucet (particularly the fact that there was only ONE of them). For anyone who's spent any time in England, you know what I'm talking about. The room was very clean and the staff friendly. This is not close to any restaurants, so if you don't eat in advance you're limited to their restaurant but it was fine. I would not recommend the take-away breakfast, not a good value. You can eat better at the airport for about the same price. Also the shuttle service to the airport will not be a good deal if there are more than 2 people in your party. A taxi was 10 pounds, vs. the shuttle which is 3 pounds pp.



    Chose the hotel on the basis of these reviews. Stayed here for one night before holiday at end of Feb '05. It is clean, basic and fine. Beds were really comfortable and shower had great water pressure.

    Did wait for about 40mins for the free bus at Gatwick. Booked return bus for 6:30am next morning which costs 3.50 per person and all ok. It was a bit further out than I expected - seemed to pass alot of other hotels on the way. It is next to the Premier Lodge (5min walk) which has the Chef & Brewer pub next door which is worth a visit - nice beamed, old style pub.

    Great Value


    What a pleasant surprise. The hotel is a short ride from the airport and the staff are very friendly. The room was simple but very clean. Food in the restaurant was good. Price was excellent. Highly recommended.

    Really nice


    This was a real find. It was close to the airport and they would pick you up from your flight by just going to the courtesy hotel pick up and calling the hotel. They had good food at the hotel and a pleasant staff. Rooms were nice and clean. You could get a ride to the airport and could catch the train to london right at the airport. Next door to the hotel was the gatwick manor pub and restaurant. This was a great place

    to eat. You could also catch the bus right outside the hotel and go to the town center and mall.

    Best value near Gatwick


    Spent hours trying to find an affordable hotel near Gatwick for a forced layover. Kept cross-referencing listings I could afford with Trip Advisor reviews that were horrific. Finally happened on Hotel Ibis Gatwick, and was very pleased by it. Clean, comfortable, quiet room (if the window was closed), free shuttle from airport to hotel and only 3 GBP to take the shuttle back to the airport in the morning for my next flight (be sure to book your timeslot ahead as it gets full and that could create a problem for you).

    Good value


    Clean room. Quiet location - no aircraft noise. Good shower. Very firm bed. Breakfast of nice coffee and pastries available in the foyer at extra charge. All you could ask, for a stopover near the airport at this reasonable price. Free courtesy bus picks up at the airport - go the the courtesy bus stops (signposted) and there is a phone with a number to dial and they pick up within 10-20 minutes.

    Do note though that the courtesy bus back to the airport is often booked up in advance for early morning departures, so you need to be sure you put your name on the list as soon as you arrive. Cost if free FROM the airport to the hotel, but 3.50 back to the airport. A taxi to the airport is about 15.

    Nothing fancy, but it worked for me


    Perfectly adequate room at a good price, and very convenient to the airport.

    Pleasantly Surprised


    Very nice accomadations for the price and that is why I gave it above average. Free 5 min shuttle ride to and from Gatwick. The shuttle departs the hotel every half hour. Bar and restaurant were available but alchoholic beverages only available until 11pm. I was happy to find air conditioned rooms as I was there during a small heat wave (which is rare). The rooms were compact but very modern and clean. The shower was fantastic. I have usually stayed at the Gatwick Hilton and I had to admit to myself that even though there are a few less luxuries, it is no less of a pleasant stay condsidering my pocketbook had 100 GBP more left in it! I will definitely stay here again.

These were bought by members of the public and stuck in the ground at Tower of London. So the whole what used to be a moat, is a sea of red. Blood red.

    No entry for yesterday as we didn't get back till late after our concert, and dropped into bed. Had the first good sleep since we arrived, and now feel set to face the world! The difficulty is that unlike in Spain last year, here we leave the hotel in the morning and don't return till late, by which time we are tired - don't even feel like playing Words, or writing up the blog. So for yesterday's events: had an actual breakfast at South Kensington (perfectly ...
