The seafront town of Eastbourne is just over an hours drive from our budget Crawley hotel and it is a great place to visit whilst you stay with us for a day trip to the seaside. Breathe in the fresh sea air just an hour from our hotel near Gatwick Airport in the beautiful coastal town famous for its iconic chalk cliffs, rolling landscapes and British seaside charm.
Take a walk along the famous chalk cliff tops on the highest chalk sea cliff in the UK at 530 feet. The walk offers stunning views of the English Channel and you can visit the Belle Tout Lighthouse along the way or stop off at a pub to enjoy the views.
Eastbourne’s unspoilt Victorian pier is 300m long as was built between 1866 and 1872. This stunning piece of British history is a must-see when you visit Eastbourne on a day trip from our budget Crawley hotel. The seafront remains timeless with beautiful Victorian architecture and you can enjoy traditional seaside attractions such as an amusement arcade, fish n’ chips and ice cream parlours.
Built in 1935 with a unique semi-circular design and blue domed roof, there is no other bandstand like it in the UK. It seats 1,600 people and plays host to a full programme of concerts and events. If you get a chance then definitely catch a music performance here for a truly special experience when you visit Eastbourne whilst staying at our Crawley hotel.

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!
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.
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.
