Brighton isn’t just a destination for summer; there’s plenty going on all year round and it is the perfect place for a winter break. Stay at our Crawley hotel and enjoy all that this charming seaside town has to offer. Here are 4 reasons to visit Brighton in 2018.

Soak up the fresh sea air

Of course lying on a beach in the sunshine is wonderful, but there’s something spectacular about the seaside in winter too. There’s nothing better than wrapping up in your hat and gloves and taking a walk along the sea front, taking in the dramatic sky, choppy waves and breathing that fresh sea air. Grab a coffee to keep your hands warm, take a short drive from our Gatwick hotel and enjoy.

Brighton Beach

Get cosy with a coffee

Speaking of coffee, tucked away down the charming laines of Brighton you’ll find many a quirky coffee shop. The team at our hotel in Crawley recommend Pelicano, serving up amazing coffee made using ethically sourced beans as well as a wide range of tempting handmake cakes. This is the perfect spot to stay warm and enjoy an afternoon of people watching.

Coffee in Brighton

Be a culture vulture at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery

The Brighton Museum & Art Gallery is the perfect way to spend an afternoon, after a great night’s sleep at our hotel near Gatwick airport. It’s bound to be far quieter than in the peak summer season, meaning you can wander the exhibitions at your leisure without feeling rushed, plus it’s nice and warm! New from 18th November 2017, explore ‘Guck: Art and Identity’, an exhibition exploring the life and work of 20th century artist Gluck, who is recognised as a trailblazer of gender fluidity.

Brighton Museum

Let Brighton entertain you

Brighton is home to all sorts of world class entertainment. Laughter warms the soul and there’s plenty to be had at Komedia, the city’s most famous comedy venue; there’s no shortage of entertaining shows taking place any time of year. Or check out Proud Cabaret Brighton for an evening of delicious food, creative drinks and a night of debauchery, the perfect way to beat the January blues.

Holiday Inn Express Gatwick Crawley Reviews



Absolutely fantastic hotel... Booked it as a package, a very economical package with Purple Parking via Holiday Extras on our way to California via Gatwick Airport. One of the cleanest, hassle free hotels I have ever stayed in and I completely, 100% will recommend them to anyone travelling via Gatwick and will certainly use this hotel again myself. Breakfast was awesome, just what we needed to set us up for our 10 hour flight.



Very comfortable stay. Breakfast very good and staff very attentive. Easy to find and great value for money. Very welcoming and nice quiet hotel. Staff great could not fault anything. Nice and handy for Gatwick.



We stayed here before our flight to Crete and got a Hotel & Parking package. It was easy to find, the staff were very efficient & friendly and we had a ground floor room, which was lovely & clean. Overall a nice relaxing stay before our trip, we would definitely stay again.



This hotel was lovely and had a lovely vibe as lots of the holiday customers were excited . The hotel staff were very chatty and friendly. We arrived at the hotel too late for food but were told we could get sandwiches made up. However, we were shattered so we didn't bother taking up this generous offer. Our room was lovely and had complementary free WiFi so the kids were happy. We left our car at the hotel for a week which was secure and looked after. When we returned at 2am the following week, the staff were just as lovely and helpful. We were very happy with the service and we look forward to doing it all again next year.



Just stayed in the Holiday Inn Express at Crawley before flying out of Gatwick Airport. We booked our stay via APH car parks. We had a really good stay and the hotel had nice, clean and modern rooms with a good comfy bed. We had the added bonus of a breakfast included & check in was nice and simple with overnight parking. Well worth it to be nice and fresh for the airport.

Stayed at Holiday Inn Express Crawley for 3 nights during an in-between London/Brighton break. The breakfast was good and had a variety of foods on offer. The hotel was very clean as were the bathroom/bedrooms!


Amsterdam, Netherlands

The hotel, the breakfast, the rooms, staff are great! Hotel is located near the centre of Crawley and offers various services! We were here with a large group and the service were great! Breakfast was fine and offered several things!



We stayed at Holiday Inn Express Crawley and paid for the Stay & Park package as we had an early flight the next day. I have stayed here on business before, however I forgot how good it was. Quick check in and everything was clean. We had dinner at the bar and the food was excellent, I could not fault a thing. Worth every penny!



We originally booked for one night but decided to extend our stay for another night. The staff were extremely helpful and only charged us the same rate for the second night as the first. The Hotel reception and lounge (where breakfast is) is lovely and modern. The rooms are clean and well designed and we couldn't hear any noise from the airport or roads. Breakfast was good and it wasn't too busy. Overall a nice hotel that's good value for money.


Cardiff, Wales

We picked this hotel again to park the car during our holiday and stay overnight when we got back as our flight did not arrive until early morning. 1st class service, excellent value and very helpful staff. Would highly recommend this hotel.
