A luxury hotel with no Free WiFi is not a luxury hotel! You expect when you pay a certain price to have everything included without having to ask! Though they gave me a nice large room overlooking the lobby, I was staying 4 nights, I will not go back to

Check in terrific! Very professional friendly and helpful. Room very nice with view of the aeroplanes. Bed very comfortable and fresh. Arrived at La Brasserie at 18:50. Starters were a bit slow to arrive, but good. I had the fillet steak, quite small for the price but cooked OK. I made the mistake of ordering a side of boiled new... More

Great airport hotel ~ comfortable clean rooms, good white company bathrooms products. We like the chinese restaurant there ~ super food and nice ambience. Professional, slick and fast service. Breakfast was really splendid, so much choice, super efficient service with professional staff who really know what they are doing. The location can't be beaten for convenience and ease, we were...

This hotel had a reasonable sized room with a great picture window which you could see the planes land from which our two year old loved. It was clean and great access from the hotel into the airport for our early flight. Price was quite high considering we were not in the room for long and left around four am.... More

We recently stayed here for 1 night prior to flying from the North Terminal. The room was very comfortable and quiet allowing for a good nights rest before flying, there are a good selection of restaurants and bars in the hotel complex allowing for all tastes and budgets. The check in process was straight forward, and the short walk to... More

We booked the Sofitel room only with Maple Manor meet and greet parking through Holiday Extras and this worked well for us. We don’t fly from Gatwick very often and whilst we have done other Gatwick park and stays in the past, this was the first time we’ve stayed right at the airport. Sofitel is a big white square hotel... More

Stayed here twice recently on two separate trips. It was excellent again, as it's always been, going back many years. These days I find the front desk staff more helpful and better trained than in the past, I think management have tightened up here. They were really very helpful with a special request I made. The breakfast (buffet) was good.

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
