Travelodge Gatwick Airport Central
Travel Blogs from Horley
Arrived at Gatwick airport and found the coachpark area, waited forever and impatience took over so I decided to walk. I then spotted the hotel from afar so decided to walk towards it and ended up finding a dirt path, which looked like it had been used previously, I got soaked in the long grass as it had been raining and when I reached the hotel I looked a state lol.

Our flight with Virgin Atlantic was scheduled for 9.40am and we stayed at Mercure Hotel, Gatwick the night before. They have a very good package for 1 night stay + 8 days of parking for only £75! The room was of reasonable size and the bed was comfortable – those are the only necessities …
I made my way over to Gatwick (London) airport and stayed across the close to the airport, which was a mistake, but an adventure. I stayed at the London Gattwick Renaissance, I guess booking hotels, flights, tours a few hours before departure on no sleep gets you what you plan for. I ended up communting to London (45min ride) everyday. So that part …
Sitting at the airport waiting to board my plane! Stayed the night at a cute little bed and breakfast by the Gatwick Airport, it was nice! I unfortunately only got like 2 hours of sleep for some reason, so I feel like my cold is really acting up again... I hope I can navigate myself through the airport, since most of it will be in German. Ana and I have a busy weekend planned: including hiking the German Alps! It's crazy to think when I get back to London in a few days ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Gatwick Airport Central Horley
A large party of us stayed here. It seems that depending on what room you get, you could have luck or not. I appear to attract all the worst hotel features, so can only share my experience.
One of the best hotels at Gatwick airport. We've recently switched to staying at other hotels there, anytime we've flown from Gatwick, such as the Hilton, but have decided that next time we'll stay at the Renaissance again. The rooms aren't the most luxurious airport hotel rooms, however are quite big and the lobby restaurant is very good and the breakfasts are excellent.
This feels like a higher end American hotel, which was nice at the end of our vacation after several smokey small rooms for big money. The room was lovely and the service good.
Our only small snaffoo was the restaurant, we wanted to eat dinner in the cafe-type restaurant, but they had filled up all four people tables with parties of two. We had four people and had to wait 20 minutes, meanwhile every two person table in the restaurant was available. It was just kind of silly and irritating.
Once we finally got a table, the food was excellent and we were able to get ice tea!
The English breakfast buffet was well worth the money and was excellent.
Taking my daughter on a no-expense spared holiday after a windfall, and thought I was choosing a luxury hotel with great service.
I generally like Marriott hotels and as there are no Marriott near Gatwick airport I decided to stay at the Renaissance which is part of the Marriott Group. The style is completely different. This Renaissance is pretty, but nothing special. If you have to spend here one night to get an early flight it is certainly a nice place. There is a bus connecting the hotel to the airport. It is 2£ only on your way to the airport (free when you go to the hotel). Remember that during rush hours (8-10 a.m.) you might need 30 minutes to get to the north terminal by shuttle bus.
Good for a stopover
Stayed over here between flights. I didn't really get to check out any of the other facilities but the rooms were lovely.
Good room facilities, and comfortable bed. Ideal for a nights stay.
Five minutes from the hotel by courtesy bus.
I alwasy stay here
We have stayed here 6 times for an easy morning departure from Gatwick.
I will stay again
Not sure if I really qualify to write a review as my wife and I stayed at this hotel following our wedding reception which took place there.
A Good Place to Stay for the Price and Location
The Renaissance Gatwick Hotel is a good place to stay if you are traveling in and out of the Gatwick airport. It is conveniently located within a mile of the airport, and they have shuttles generally leaving every ten to fifteen minutes. The rooms are spacious and resemble an average, 3 star American hotel. The food was average as well. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the price was excellent through an online servic. Again, it's a great place to stay for a night if you require access to the Gatwick airport.
Out of this world experience
The staff was extremely courteous, the food was wonderful, even the weather cooperated. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone,,,from anywhere in the world
