Thanks for that, it looks great but I don't think the company would stand for the price, I am there for a month

If you are looking for good value and personal service close to CAe have a look at the Hickstead Hotel.

I stayed there for a month, around 60 a night. Great food and amazing staff. It is a little basic, but comfortable and the good folk there will arrange anything you need - laundry, 3am breakfasts, etc. Additionally it is less than five minutes drive to the centre.

B&B

There is a lot of nice B&B in short dist. from CAE. I can't remember the page I used, but one of the places i used was less than 10 min walk away.

Thanks for the suggestions, I think I'll opt for the Courtyard at Gatwick.

Stayed at the Hickstead and The Courtyard. Hickstead is 5 minutes drive, Gatwick about 25 minutes. Hickstead is basic, but perfectly fine, and a great pub about 10 minutes walk away. All depends if you want the Marriott points!!!

A full month of 5 minutes versus 25 minutes will soon add up......

Avoid Brighton if possible......it can sometimes take 45 min to an hour in the morning rush hour!!

I've stayed at the Hickstead and have to agree with Arkwright, that its basic but clean. menu is a bit simple and I think the WiFi was only really available downstairs. Premier Inn is very good actually, better than some 4 stars I've stayed in. Plus despite the advertised breakfast times, the staff were very accommodating in allowing me to get food very early indeed. They also did a 5 or 7 day WiFi deal which worked very well in the rooms. Despite previous posts to suggest Brighton is no good, I have actually stayed in a number of hotels there and had transit times of 20 mins or so with no traffic (lets be honest, most sim times are outside of rush hour times) - key to Brighton seems to be easy access to the A23. I recall getting a very good deal at the Queens hotel, a suite for the same price as a basic room in any of the branded hotels, plus good access to Brighton facilities and good gym on-site with pool.

Hi!

I like the Arora Crawley. Good food and nice city center in a walking distance.

Good luck!

I'm writing from the Premier Inn in Burgess Hill :-)

We usually go to the Hicksted, nice hotel and nice staff, but this time we are here. I think that this hotel is better than Hicksted. Very close to the CAE training center (100mt straight) and also it's new! It includes also a restaurant (Beefeater)...

Cheers

Try Brantridge Park . App 15 mins drive. Country mansion hotel but it has apartments with bedroom, sitting room, kitchens. Very reasonable rates.
All set in beautiful park-like grounds.There's a big Tesco next door to CAE and a Waitrose in Burgess Hill .
Much better than a hotel for a month.

Burgess Hill Homestay

I would suggest Burgess Hill Homestay. You can contact the owner directly on +447895014045. Friendly rates for longer terms, like my Airbus A320 training ;-)

Go for Brighton! Loads of hotels to choose from and you can eat somewhere different every night. Once you have finished groundschool and are travelling at non- peak traffic times the drive is easy too...

we used to call the Hickstead ‘Acorn antiques’ after the comedy sketch.... Marriott lingfield Park is a nice alternative if you are points gathering!
