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

This is a fairly good Sofitel, and features all the things you would expect from an airport hotel: Good firm beds, choice of pillows and everything you need for a good night's sleep. Being a Platinum Accor members, we were upgraded and our room was excellent. I'm surprised to read that other reviewers had poor rooms. The hotel itself is... More

This hotel is great, we normally stay at the Hilton when we fly from gatwick however for a change stayed at he Sofitel. Really happy we made the swap. Unlike the Hilton this hotel is really well maintained, and nicely decorated. The hotel is very clean and nicely decorated. The rooms are more than adequate and the beds very comfortable.... More

Must say all was very good here, professional staff with service. Room was lovely, clearly recently refurbished. Had a meal at the Oriental restaurant, food was very good. This is the way to prepare for your holiday, so would do this again and that includes the Sofitel.
