Fabulous stay, I just wish it had been for longer!!”
An absolutely fabulous short overnight stay before flying the next day, booked for a bargain price. The hotel is extremely convenient for the airport...it is easy to get to as it has it's own dedicated entrance/exit from the train station, and the train station itself is just one stop away from Gatwick Airport. Highly recommended!

For rail travellers needing a 1 night stop over before flying out of LGW, this hotel is perfect.”
You can gain access to the Hotel directly from the south bound platform at Crawley station. The room was clean, comfortable, had a good shower and the usual tea/ coffee making facilitlies. Note: The walk in shower cubical in our room was triangular (not sure why it wasn’t square) and may therefore be a bit tight for a larger person. This may just have been our room, so if you are a larger framed person, it would probably just be best to point this out when booking, just in case. Don’t let this stop you booking, just check beforehand. The town centre, with it’s shopping centre, many pubs and eateries is a short walk away, basically just the other side of the station. We actually went to the cinema as well as eating at a very nice Italian restaurant the evening we stayed here. If you are travelling out of the UK from the South Terminal @ LGW, its a quick, cheap trip two stations north. Perfect.

...a pair of Apple AirPods went missing from the room, my son forgot them on the bedside desk and 'puff' they disappeared and even though we spent a little fortune having stayed there for 21 nights, the hotel didn't want to take responsibility, asking us to report to the police... this was quite disappointing.

Very clean and modern”
We flew in for a one night stop over between legs of a flight. Although not right near the airport it is around a 15 - 20 min drive by taxi. Not overly expensive to get to. The hotel itself is modern, well kept. Nice lobby. The lifts work fast!! Always good. It had a small deli on site, very handy for chips / drinks / trinkets. The dining area was well kept and clean.. if I had of seen it before 10pm it would have been very nice I'm sure... piano on site. As a couple we wished we had 'more nights' there. Which is a good sign. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room.. lots of room.. great shower. Comfy bed. Couldnt fault it.

Great hotel and awesome breakfast! Fantastic value. Only issue was that the gate from the train to the property wouldn't work with either ours or another guests key cards; we had to call the front desk to have them open the gate.

Good location within easy access of Gatwick airport”
Decided to stay here when the on site Gatwick hotels were too expensive. Located right next door to Crawley Railway station with their own private access directly off the station platform so if the hotel’s Gatwick shuttle bus is full - as was he case for me - the trains at£3.50 take you to Gatwick’s North terminal easily and quickly

A very nice hotel”
I was a little surprised how far this was from the Gatwick Airport, but other than the 10-15 minute trip to the airport, it was a great place to stay. Very efficient staff, pleasant room with a fantastic bath and loads of hot water, nice toiletries, tea and coffee and a clever little ironing board which was helpful. Would stay again.

A good overnight stay pre flight”
Easy to check in, about 10 mins from Gatwick. Located in Crawley which must be one of the ugliest towns in England. That said the hotel is clean and comfortable. I would recommend an overnight stay before a flight.

It’s a bit dated but clean and big. The hotel is just 15 mins away from Gatwick airport by taxi (15 pounds). Hotel provided free shuttle to the airport if fly with Cathay pacific. Only few minutes walk to crawley station and city centre. We did a day trip to London, quite convenient

Very welcoming accomodation. Our stay for two different dates of weekend this month, worth for money. The place was clean. Front desk staff were very busy because very big hotel but if you talked to them politely and patiently which I did, they are very friendly and helpful. On our booking with Agoda we requested a higher/top floor and quiet room which the hotel accomodated and made a big difference, especially we are staying for a night for swimming competition in K2. I rated 5 star for location because it was very close to K2 and easy to find. Top floor and outside view (fountain) were the best and relaxing according to my daugther. Rooms are clean and plenty of lights from outside and inside both room we stayed 3rd (1 double bed/5th floors (2 beds) have shower and bath. Plenty of parking however it's not free. Maybe it's better if the parking is free for the duration of your check inn and out. £10 pounds additional for a night of your stay is still a big amount.

Nice, clean hotel near center of Crawley town”
Three of us used this hotel for one night to break our trip up and refresh before catching our flight out of LGW the next morning. The hotel staff was very helpful with information. The front desk staff were professional but a bit, 'stiff.' Lacking a bit of friendliness all around. Our last stay there was at least 8 years ago and I was impressed with the cleanliness and upkeep. Very impressive as it has not been re-decorated in a while. Its a very short walk to restaurants and shops and a great alternative to staying at an airport property hotel. Yes. We would recommend it to friends and family.

Nice business hotel”
The Arora is a big modern hotel, not usually my style, but well-located for Gatwick airport. Strangely my GPS was convinced it was on the other side of the road. Even more strangely, there is no lift or escalator from the huge underground car park to the hotel lobby. Rooms were nice and generously sized.

Another Great Stay at Arora!”
This was my second stay at Arora within a two week period. I spent a lot of time looking at the various areas and hotels around Gatwick airport prior to deciding to stay at Arora. My research definitely paid off as I love this hotel! It's much more luxurious than I'm used to in the U.S. for this price range. It has a pub and restaurant right there, an espresso cafe in the lobby and 24 hour bar on the other side of it. The building is modern with high ceilings and uplifting. You will see a lot of pilots and flight attendants staying here, and presumably they will know the best hotels near the airport. It's about 10 minutes walk to the train station and to the shopping mall. Super convenient. Both rooms were equally luxurious with the nicest bathrooms I've ever seen, including a deep bathtub for soaking and a separate shower stall. I used the tub exclusively :-) The beds were soft but firm enough for support. I slept very well there. I liked that the rooms have fridges too. A+!

If Gatwick traveler, don't stay here!”
I booked this hotel due to favorable comments and because I thought it was close to Gatwick. We arrived at Gatwick ready for pickup at 7:30 p.m. I had been told in an email that their hotel shuttle van operated every 15 minutes so I was very disappointed when I called the hotel and was told the shuttle was not running as driver had gone home early. Because of this I had to pay for a taxi and the distance to the hotel was much longer than I had expected. The staff was not very friendly and although our room was satisfactory and beds comfortable, the walls were thin and as I tried to get some sleep, I could hear clearly a couple talking in the room next to ours and they were not shouting but in normal conversational tones. I will never stay here in the future as there are better choices much more convenient to. Gatwick.

Hotel is too far away from the aiport and the airport shutle goes once per hour. Although there is a mall right next to the hotel, it closes at 6pm. So if you want to get supplies/food & drink be sure to be arrive earlier.
