We stayed here before our early morning flight from Gatwick. Quick check in with friendly & efficient staff. Stunning rooms, very clean great choice of amenities. Our rooms overlooked the hub of the hotel and its several bars and restaurants. We enjoyed drinks in the upstairs bar (sorry cannot remember its name) then dinner in the Oriental restaurant, delicious! Comfy... More

The Sofitel at Gatwick is amazingly convenient for the North Terminal and with direct access to check in. Car parking is included and it is an ideal and relaxed way to start a holiday especially with an early flight. Staff were consistently friendly and helpful.

Lovely hotel, lovely food, lovely room. We had a family room and were booked into this hotel the night before our holiday. It was very convenient to walk straight to the airport the following morning. Would definitely recommend and also returning next time we go away.

We stayed here the night before our mid-morning flight and I was pleasantly surprised at what a nice time we had. The rooms are above average for an airport hotel but it's the choice of bars and restaurants which edges this above the other hotels at Gatwick .... and the fact that it's right outside the terminal building so no...

We stayed here peak season August for one night before our early morning flight. Great hotel very close to the terminal with underground pathway directly to terminal. Rooms were larger than expected . The only complaint i would make is the price of drinks and food in the restaurant was daylight robbery and definitely not affordable for most everyday people....

Stayed here for one night with my family before an early flight to Jersey and I have to say -the four days parking included in the room rate was brilliant for the return journey. Evening meal was ok - Daughter had a pizza and the risotto was alright - this was the bistro and wouldn't rave about it but it... More

Purchased the room and 8 day parking deal. Love the convenience. The rooms and style are not in the same league as Sofitel Heathrow, but nor are the prices! There is some aircraft noise from those rooms overlooking the runway, and some light bleed from the curtains if you are a light sleeper. Suggest you book if you want to... More

Had a one night stay and the hotel is as you would expect from a Sofitel, clean, comfortable and quiet. Great location, no aircraft noise and speedy check in and check out. I didnt use any of the facilities so cant comment on that.
