Extra frills at a no-frills price

For an affordable hotel at Gatwick airport, you won't believe just how much is on offer at the Holiday Inn Express Crawley. From the friendly, comfortable atmosphere and the variety of rooms on offer, to the free, on-site parking and free hot breakfast, this is a hotel with frills at a no-frills price!

Little extras at little expense

You'll probably want to spend as little time at the airport as you possibly can, but still not be stranded in the middle of nowhere. Well, the Holiday Inn Express has the solution: it's just a short walk away from Crawley town centre, with plenty of shops and restaurants to keep you occupied. Still, on the morning of your flight, it's only a quick bus or train ride to the airport.

On the same site as the hotel is a Harvester pub offering dinner and drinks, while the hotel itself has a small bar and a morning breakfast buffet. All the rooms have a TV, hot drinks and wifi available. If you find yourself too comfortable in your room to head out to dinner, the hotel even offers local takeaway menus you can use to order food up to your room. You'll find everything you need, but you won't have to pay for anything you don't. The perfect option for the budget traveller who still appreciates the little things.

We recommend the Holiday Inn Express for:

Great value - For a budget-hotel price, you get a great-quality hotel with comfortable rooms. You also get a free breakfast and free, on-site parking.

A great night's sleep - The hotel has large, modern beds, with air conditioning and even a choice of pillows.

Explorers - The Holiday-Inn Express Gatwick is just a short walk away from all the shops, bars and clubs of Crawley town centre, so you won't be stranded at the hotel.
