Our 4th or 5th stop-over for an early morning flight...........and it gives us the opportunity to sample the superb cuisine in the hotel's restaurant The Brasserie. A very comfortable room and good bar and relaxing facilities in the foyer. One tip, for two largish people we find the double bed a bit of a squash, which is circumvented by requesting... More

We stayed here for one night flying home to Glasgow from Malta. After a dreadful experience with British Airways, the welcome we received from Monika at reception on our arrival put us at ease again. Despite our late arrival, we were greeted warmly with drinks and canapés in the Club Sofitel lounge by Mita, who really went out of her... More

Arrived early evening on business and was politely greeted by reception staff. However after that it went downhill. The hotel has three restaurants however the room service menu is disappointing. I was advised that room service would take 30 minutes. 1 hour 15 minutes later I chased to be advised the pizza will be with be soon. The busy arrived... More

We were staying at the premier in next door but due the the mass of marauding kids and less than bothered parents we decided to look for a more grown up place to relax and enjoy a relaxing drink. We found this at the Sofitel. Not cheap but the table service in the bar was exemplary. Good quality wine and... More

The hotel is clean , comfortable and reasonably efficient. Staying here will not feed the soul but it is not designed for it. My real gripe was very slow internet unless guests upgrade to faster speed. For a hotel of this standard this is a Neanderthal policy that leaves a feeling of dissatisfaction. Come on Sofitel you can do better... More

We have stayed many times at this hotel, when we have an early flight from Gatwick. Good room, lovely nights sleep and our car was still in the same parking space that we left it in. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel.

Once again a great stay at the Sofitel. Slept like a baby. Woke refreshed for our flight. Great staff. Helpful. Great proximity to airport and ease of parking you park your car and hand in the keys and the car is waiting for you on your return. Will always choose this hotel when flying from gatwick.

Very convenient for an overnight stay bcfore a flight next moring. Staff were friendly and could not have been more helpful, particularly for someone with reduced mobility. Food was well presented and served. Bedroom and bathroom were large and comfortable. But architecturally somewhat like the airport itself - vast, impersonal, Stalinist concrete Lego, a place for passing through, like a... More

I chose this hotel for 2 reasons; it is top of the Accor range and seemed a good choice of lodging before an early long-haul flight and this particular Sofitel is cheek-by-jowl with Gatwick's North Terminal. The location was very good - definitely a handy walk from the lobby to the terminal for onward flights next morning. But sadly my... More

A distance to travel to Gatwick airport for a short holiday by car and used the Sofitel linked to N Terminal for both the night before and night of return given ''flight times'' with secured car parking. Very efficient and highly convenient for this purpose with no difficulties re car parking as next door that led to a stress free... More
