Travelodge Gatwick Airport Central
Excellent for the purpose.
Hope to avoid staying here again!
Problems...ceiling leaked in bathroom - woke me during early hours of night, thought the tap not shut off properly, so out of bed and turned tap, shut bathroom door, back to sleep, early flight next morning.
Up in the light could see water coming through the ceiling from above. Thought this was important so informed the cleaner who was on our floor - she didn't seem to want to know, wouldn't come to see it, and just told us to tell reception. Told them, but they showed little interest. Food - not great quality - queue for 20 mins to order, after we sat in restaurant for 10 mins waiting for a menu, then found out that you have to order in the bar (no signs up to tell you). If you want a second drink with your meal - join the queue at the same bar - probably for another 20-30 minutes. Not my idea of a great hotel, or great evening. Restaurant has no atmosphere, is large and unfriendly - probably OK for breakfast. We moved into the bar. Also the TV was very loud in the restaurant - huge screen, some sort of promotional TV - not an actual programme...with loud music. Our room was large, but in the large space available were just two very uncomfortable plastic seats. No small table, nothing, just lots of space. WiFi - only half an hour free, then pay. Really cannot think of anything that would persuade me to stay here again, to be honest. Could not get keycard to work unless you put in and out very very quickly - and that was the second keycard - had to queue for a second time at reception to get a new one, too. Whole visit was not something I would wish to repeat. Listened to people at the next table in the bar receiving the wrong food, but the waitress argued that it was what they ordered. Transpired the order was not transmitted right at the bar - not surprising due to their heavy workload and rush to get through the queue of customers!
