    Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Crawley Gatwick

    The dirtiest most run down hotel I have yet come across.


    This is quite simply a dump. Dirty, run down and run by unhelpful or just plain demoralised staff.

    There was a dirty stained matress by the entrance, the entrance canopy is thick with bird droppings, the toilets were out of order, the general decor is appalling, several of the sash windows were hanging at an angle, the net curtains were filthy. Old fag butts litter the carpark and rear entrance.

    The 'Conference' room was in darkness as half the bulbs were blown. The water glasses were filthy and on it goes. You have been warned. Words cannot describe how bad this place is.....

    One night was enough


    This is a prime example of you get what you pay for. We stayed one night as we had a flight out the next day and decided not to spend as much as we had been spending around England. The building apparently has not been redocorated in at least fifty years. Carpets, tile in bathroom, furniture, everything is old and grimy. The beds were not too uncomfortable, however, and the sheets were clean. The man at the reception desk was very nice and helpful. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel as we didn't quite feel good about the cleanliness. OK for one night, I guess, if you are headed out of town.



    Nothing good about this hotel which really needs a damn good renovation. Staff are helpful enough but not a patch on the Arora.

    It's a dump


    In fairness we should say that the dinner and breakfast we had when staying last night were not bad. The trouble is the surroundings are so dirty, dingy and depressing, you cannot really enjoy the food. If all the public areas ming what do the kitchens look like? It's not that close to the airport either, we paid 11 to the hotel and 12.50 back to the airport. Don't go there unless you are a complete dosser.

    Cleaning patrol required


    The hotel needs a decent cleaning. Spoons should not stick to the breakfast table.... The bathrooms are filthy.

    The pictures lie!


    We stayed one aweful night in this hotel. On the websites it looked almost luxurious but the truth was it was run down and very dirty. We arrived late and didn't really look properly at the room until it was too late. It went from bad to worse: pubic hair on the carpet, blood stains and brown stains on the blankets, long black hairs on the floor of the bathroom and blocking the sink plughole, stains around the toilet. Perhaps we should have been suspicious when instead of having a room located in the beautiful coach house at the front, ours was in the nasty sixties prefab hidden at the back!

    Mold, Mold and Pigeon Poo


    I had the misfortune to stay at this dreadful hotel on business in July. My regular venues being fully booked and as this is part of a chain, and indeed the website looked OK I was booked in for 1 night - thank goodness only 1! The hotel itslef was old, damp and fusty. The room was old, damp and fusty with mold in the bathroom. The only saving grace was very clean sheets! I did not however want to sit on any chair or touch any furniture! On opening a window I found to my horror a windowsill covered in pigeon poo - delighful!

    As I was late arriving I could not find another venue or I would have been out of there!

    Needless to say I could not bring myself to eat there so a large G&T and off to bed for an unpleasant night.


    Mold,mold and more mold.


    I had booked a one night stop over because it was near the airport and because it looked interesting. My brother and I each had a room, his was 165 in the Essex wing. I didn't see his bathroom until just before leaving and to say I was shocked is an understatement. The mold around the tub was thick and black, the tub looked like it was ready to fall through the floor to the room below. The bedroom had wall paper peeling off and the bed was almost on the floor. My first distaste in my room, 166 was the filty bedspreads, I immediately threw them into a corner, the sheets were spotless but I was disgusted to see that there was no mattress pad between the sheet and mattress, I proceeded to remove all the sheets from the two extra beds and placed them over the bottom sheet, taking great care not to touch the dingy blankets I was able to get some sleep. All in all a disappointing stay. We were unable to have breakfast as I was told at the desk this had to be booked when the room was booked, their loss I say.

    Great for Airport


    I use Gatwick airport upto four times a year, and always need a hotel for the night, because of connections, as I live in Mallorca. I chose the George because of its central location in Crawley. I have in the past used the "Airport Hotels", and you are just stuck in them, and can be very expensive, with this hotel I can walk to one of the cities eateries, I can do last minute shopping etc!! The only fault with the hotel, is that in some places its a bit shabby and could do with a lick of paint in places. I probably would'nt want a week here, but for overnite its perfect, and only a ten minute taxi ride from the airport!!



    My wife and I selected The George for its history and character and while the building and the public areas do not disappoint and the staff are friendly and helpful the room and surroundings were very poor.

    Carpets in the hallways and room, were threadbear, the window frames rotten with peeling paint, the curtains dirty and stained and the coverlet on the bed soiled and stained, overall I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It may have character but it is in great need of renovation and attention.

    Went to Kingston-upon-Thames, about 20-25 minute train ride from Waterloo station.

    It's an old market town on the river with huge variety of really lovely old buildings based around the market square, lots of little lanes, and a couple of more modern shopping centres as well. Has all the "high street" shops.
    I had picked it because it has the closest Taking Shape for clothes (we know them in Australia and NZ as TS), Hotter for ...

    Mikaela and I woke up at 9:30 and the plan was to find something to do. After much debate we decided to go for a walk down and across the canal, we were walking for about an hour watching ducks slowly make their way across. We then reached the end and started walking to Little Venice, it was nearly 1:00 and Mikaela was hungry even though we had breakfast at 10, so we tried to find something to eat but we ended up on the train ...

    ... from Dubai where malls are like a work of art - it was just a mall. Our road trip was meant to take us into Oxford and then onto Southampton. We didn't make it to Oxford town because we got very excited seeing the signs for Blenheim Palace (again this is another History Channel ad that we have come to memorize). Blenheim Palace was built as a reward for John Churchill's battle win over the French. It is also the birthplace of ...
