Have stayed at this hotel 7 times now. Used a hotel, parking and meal option really good value. Hotel has good connection with shuttle bus but we opted for taxi transfers and hotel put you straight through and have preferential rates not much more than the cost of shuttle bus.

2 / 3 out of 5 The room was a reasonable size, and the hotel is well situated. Parking is secure although spaces quite small. Package of room and parking was good value. Reception booked our taxi (although a bus is available) which was helpful. We found lots of hairs around the room especially bathroom which was not nice, also the shower drained poorly which all suggests ineffective cleaning.. Also the main restaurant we found expensive and service was whist fine at the start of our meal poor by the end. (we were holidaying in Norway and the price was on a par with Oslo!) Menu was limited. Car pick up was efficient and helpful on our return.

The hotel was great. A little disappointed when we were given a menu, chose our meal then told we had the wrong menu! Everything else was wonderful.

This provided one of the best ways of getting to Gatwick. The hotel was excellent and the staff very helpful and friendly. I was able to park in a secure underground car park and keep the keys. Then take the train to the airport which was very easy and efficient (although it might not have been so easy if I had luggage as I did have to get over the tracks by the stairs). I would recommend and use again.

Comfortable clean room, very friendly helpful staff. Booked this hotel because it has a secure undercover car park . Unfortunately the hotel shuttle was not available but the hotel organised a local taxi for us at a cost of £11. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Arora International was a great hotel with very good parking underneath hotel. The package I booked included a two course evening meal and 15 days parking. It was probably the best package I have experienced and at a very good price. Food was excellent and parking facilities great if like me you care for your car!!! Oh and the holiday was fantastic too!!! Taxi to Gatwick £11. Use Arora International you will not be disappointed.

Great hotel, great room and lovely food. Parking for 15 days included in the price. The hotel has its own access to Crawley Station, so is an easy getaway to Gatwick Airport. Would be pleased to stay here again!

Nice hotel, a good 15 minutes drive from Gatwick but a short walk to the train station but it can be difficult to get across to the other platform with luggage. They run a shuttle bus but only once an hour, not always at the time that suits although for us outbound and inbound it actually worked out great. The drivers were both friendly and helpful. Would stay again.

We always stay at this hotel at the beginning & sometimes also at the end of our two annual holidays. One of the main reasons we book this particular hotel is the onsite underground parking. Although the hotel lacks any sort of character it is clean & comfortable & provides everything needed for an overnight stay. We are now looking to book again for our next holiday in May 2019.

Excellent hotel. Unfortunately if you have booked for the airport transfer it's a let down. That only have a six seater mini bus that runs hourly. This gets booked up very quickly and you may be disappointed. For the return you have to book the minibus in advance which is difficult as you have to estimate how long it takes for you to recover your luggage etc. If your flight has any delay then you are snookered. We finished up paying £19 for a taxi back to the hotel. As nice as this hotel is I would not use it again for parka nd ride for Gatwick.
