I have lost count of the number of times we have stayed at this hotel. We stayed here in July and August. First visit we had 3 rooms for us and family virtually in the parking lot . As a club member I was not very happy but on our return we were upgraded to the club floor so thank... More

We stayed at the Sofitel for one night prior to our 6.35 flight to a sunny holiday in Spain - we have a 17 month old son and we wanted to make the travel as hassle-free as possible, which is why we chose Sofitel, as it boasted a tunnel that linked you directly to the North Terminal. When we arrived,... More

Good , clean hotel right on the airport...Is situated just alongside the North terminal with covered walkway connection .. South terminal can be reached by easy and frequent monorail from inside the North terminal.. Rooms nice and comfortable and beds really soft and Aircon is easy to work. Drinks and food are expensive but would expect that given situation of... More

This is a clean, well run hotel. We stayed there on a 14 day park and stay package, prior to flying on an early morning flight. It's clear from other customers in the lobby that this type of overnight stay makes up a lot of the clientele. In that respect the hotel is a bit noisier and has more kids... More

Stayed here before a morning BA transatlantic flight. Rooms were spotlessly clean, comfortable and air con was easily controlled. There was an error on the booking (we were missing a room!) but this was quickly and seamlessly sorted out. We have overnighted at other hotels at Gatwick and this is by far the best.

Sofitel London Gatwick is of course an airport hotel. And compared to the other gatwick hotels, I feel that the Sofitel is probably the best of them. We regularly stay at the Sofitel a number of times a year overnight, and we've never had any problems with it. The rooms are functional, comfortable and clean. The bedding is very comfortable....

Since this was the first night in a hotel for the start of our honeymoon we decided to go with something a bit more luxurious than the average airport hotel and based on the reviews decided the Sofitel would be a good choice. We were noted on their system as honeymooners so despite this sounding rather cheeky we did expect... More

stayed one night prior to an early morning flight. Booked as a 'hidden hotel' for £95. Couldnt have been better. Quick check in, room was comfy and great view of the planes and terminal building, although soooo quiet. Was nervous about where we would eat reasonably. But we ate fabulous burger and all the trimmings and had a bottle of... More

I really like this hotel, and have spent a total of around 15 nights there. It's the most expensive Gatwick hotel I believe, and it certainly feels the most luxurious. Very professional and polite staff, extremely comfortable rooms, great shower and good sound proofing. I'm not a snob, I've stayed in some really dreadful places eg. £3 per night in... More
