Hotel in Detail:The closest 5 star hotel to Gatwick airport is a real gem. The friendly and relaxed Windfalls Boutique Hotel offers a truly memorable experience and something you would not expect from an airport hotel. Just four bedrooms gives a new meaning to the word intimate. The subject of high praise from numerous past views (bear in mind there are only a limited number of guests staying at any one time so to have so many reviews speak volumes for their experiences). The hotel can be summed up as having contemporary glamour, a distinct Asian flavour and a touch of French chic that just oozes style.
Bedrooms are elegant and sumptuous and come complete with playstation game consoles. Beds are no ordinary affair but four posters with Egyptian linen and Siberian goose down duvets. In-room amenities include a flatscreen TV with on demand movies, iPod docking station and a DVD player plus access to the hotels own media server.
It goes without saying the bathrooms are the height of luxury, finished in stone and come with rain showers, fluffy bathrobes and under-floor heating.
Each of the rooms has a different name taken and themed after a flower. They are the Lily, Magnolia, Lotus and Orchid.
On your arrival at the Windfalls Hotel you will be served cream teas with homemade cakes and fresh coffee.
Gourmet cooked breakfasts are served daily (8.00 till 10.00 but flexible with guests requirements) while the bar offers fine wine and champagne.

Furnished with East Asian art and designer furniture throughout with a large terrace and an elegant guest lounge with an open fireplace. Chill out music plays as you enter and fragranced candles set the atmosphere.
