I have to say if our experience was anything to go by then the return after the holiday was not as good as the way from the hotel. My mobile phone had run out of charge on holiday and stupidly i had not taken a charger however I assumed we would be able to easily contact the taxi firm from Gatwick after collecting baggage. Unfortunately there were no public phones working at the airport and non of the other taxi firms who have "offices" within the airport building would help other than to charge £16+ for the lift to Effingham Park. None of the "booked" taxis would phone to base to get a taxi to come and pick us up. We were warned that it would have been a hours wait for a taxi, had we been able to phone for a car anyhow. We resolved the problem ourselves in the end but it was not easy and cost a lot more than the £11 it should have..
I stayed for nine nights in a one bedroom apartment. I chose an apartment so that I could have my son and his girlfriend around as they live and work in London. It was my base for lots of sightseeing and then nights with my son or just chilling out after a big day.

I booked this hotel the morning of arrival, after a particularly awful night in a hostel! It was a lovely night -- the staff were very helpful in helping me book a minicab for the morning, the food I ordered from the on-site restaurant was hot and delicious, the room was clean and comfortable, and everything was in great condition! I stayed in a small basement room, but it's perfect for one person (even with all the luggage I had!), and I didn't feel cramped or bothered at all! It was quiet and clean, and a great night's sleep!
