Hotel in Detail:As with most overviews of Premier Inn's we start by saying you know what you'll get. Standard facilities will be found in all Premier Inn's. Perhaps one of the biggest differences you will find is in the style of building and the Premier Inn Gatwick East (Balcombe Road) is of the classic style as opposed to the more modern purpose built recent builds. These classic style hotels normally are located alongside a traditional style standalone pub and restaurant. Thats the case with this hotel which is located alongside the Parsons Pig pub.

Although its current preferred name is the Premier Inn Gatwick East it would be more accurate to say the hotel is south of the airport, only by a mile. Nearest to the south terminal but this is of little concern as their is a free and easy to use rail system between the two terminals. In reality anyway you would go straight the terminal for your choice and require no transfers between terminals. Beware that the hotel is set back from the main road and its easy tod rive past if you are not on the lookout. The hotel sits adjacent to the Parsons Pig pub and restaurant. The hotels location is convenient for the Manor Royal industrial estate which is a mile to the south west. Getting to Gatwick Airport is pretty easy since the road links between here and the airport are good. Its less than a mile to the M23 motorway which gives links into central London and the M25 London orbital motorway. Your some 2 miles from the centre of Crawley where one of the big draws would be the County Shopping Mall. Another couple of miles further to the south finds the K2 leisure centre.
