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.
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.
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.
Balcombe Road, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 3NL
Past names:Premier Inn Crawley Pound Hill
One of the older hotels around Crawley/Gatwick this was originally
called the Premier Inn Crawley Pound Hill. To add to the confusion its
now taken the east name which was removed from the name of the Crawley
Avenue hotel. 1.1 miles (1.8 km) south east of the south terminal.
North Terminal, Longbridge Way, Gatwick Airport, Crawley, West Sussex, RH6 0NX
Past names: Premier inn Gatwick North (2012), Premier Inn Gatwick Central
(2012), Travel Inn London Gatwick (2005)
The history of this hotels name changes is detailed in the opening section.

Fleming Way, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 9DF
Contemporary purpose built hotel offering air-conditioned bedrooms ate
budget prices. Midway between Gatwick airport and Crawley Town centre.
Actually located within the Crawley Business Quarter and Manor Royal
Business park. Onsite restaurant serves meals, snacks and Costa Coffee. Also
has a hotel bar.
Crossway, Gatwick North Terminal, RH6 0PH
Only opened in 2012 and as yet has had no alternative names. Given its
location opposite the north terminal this is unlikely to be
re-christened any time soon.
