Premier Inn Hotels Close to Gatwick Airport

There are few things in this life as confusing as the naming scheme for Premier Inn hotels around Gatwick. Life would be a little easier if once named the hotel stuck with hat name. Sadly this is not the case. each time the chain take on a new premises they start playing with all the names of the hotels nearby. They are attempting to place the hotels name in sync with its location but falling way short. the problem seems to be with the catchment area they are trying to attract. So hotels around Crawley were given the Gatwick tag to pull in airport transfer clients. But as they built more modern hotels actually at and near Gatwick airport itself things became confusing. For example take one of the original airport hotels, now known as the Premier Inn Gatwick Airport (A23 Airport Way). This started off life as simply the Travel Inn London Gatwick. fair enough given that its only 1/5th of a mile from the terminals. In 2012 this hotel changed its name to the Premier Inn Gatwick Central even though it was way closer to the north terminal. A little later on they did in fact chnage the name again to the Premier Inn Gatwick North. All is now well you may think, but no! They then opened a hotel even closer to that terminal which of course took the north terminal name leaving the former Travel Inn London Gatwick to find another new name. So perhaps drop back to its former central name? nope.  This time they decided to name it after the nearest main road, the A23 Airport Way. Things might still have been ok had it not been for the 6 other hotels from the same chain that similarly had their names switched. The solution seems to have been to add the name of the nearest road to each hotel. So for those guests not sure which hotel they have actually booked and need the address of, below is a little recap of how the naming schemes have changed.
Premier Inn Gatwick Crawley Town Goffs park
PREMIER INN GATWICK CRAWLEY TOWN (GOFFS PARK) 3 STAR Rates from £39 per room
45 Goffs Park Road, Crawley, West Sussex RH11 8AX
Past Names: Premier Inn Gatwick Crawley South (Goffs Park)
Easily confused with the current Premier Inn Gatwick South as it used to have the south in its name. Also easily confused with the close by Premier Inn Gatwick Crawley Town West with ridiculously similar names. Basically this one does NOT carry the word 'west' in its name.

PREMIER INN GATWICK/CRAWLEY TOWN WEST 3 STARS Rates from £39 per room
Crawley Avenue, Gossops Green, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 8BA
Past names: Premier Inn Gatwick Crawley east
One of the biggest points of confusion is this hotel. How was it ever called the Premier Travel Inn Gatwick Crawley East? Its neither east of Gatwick or east of Crawley. What's worse is there's a different Premier Inn now sporting the east title. Just to clarify, this hotel is on the western edge of Crawley 3.7 miles (6.0 km) south of the Gatwick south terminal.
