Located just ten minutes from the airport, it’s a place to unwind and relax, with top facilities that guarantee to provide something for everyone. Sit back in the bar or restaurant to enjoy an evening, take a dip in the swimming pool or use the gym facilities for a quick workout.

Having been recently renovated, the style and décor are top-notch – rooms are cosy and comfortable, with bold colours and clever details that perfectly complement the ambience without overpowering it.

You can check in from 2pm and you’ll need to check out before noon on your day of departure.

Parking at the Gatwick Crowne Plaza

At the Crowne Plaza Gatwick, you can choose from several different options. You can leave your car at the Long Stay car park, indulge in the convenience of the Maple Manor Meet and Greet service, or book the great-value Airparks Gatwick facility. Choose whichever one suits your needs and budget.

The Long Stay car park allows you to keep your car safe and secured while you’re away, and it’s conveniently close to the airport terminals. Meanwhile, Airparks Gatwick is a great value option for leaving your vehicle secured for the duration of your holiday, without the premium price. Once you’ve dropped your car at the Airparks Gatwick facility, there’s a shuttle bus that takes you to the Gatwick terminals. The Maple Manor Meet and Greet offers a luxury service that collects your car from you at the hotel, stores it in a secured facility for the duration of your trip and then delivers it back to you when you’ve returned to the airport.


You can park at the hotel overnight during your stay, and then you’ll need to drive to the Long Stay car park on the day of your flight.
