Fantastic location. Stayed in room 546 with a lovely view of the run way etc. Shower ie wet room is amazing. Only issue we had was the blind was making strange noises as it's damaged on one side. I found the room size was fine as it was just for me and my 11 yr old. I'd definitely use this... More

We checked into this well located 'pod' hotel so we could catch an early flight. Great concept, stylish room with suede and leather decor, a large window and big double bed. Small modular shower room but perfect for one night. Unfortunately, the whole room is run by a tablet control pannel which was a bit ahead of itself, as well... More

We had an early flight Saturday morning and decided to stay the night before. We booked fairly far in advance so got a good deal. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I was very impressed with the concept. The room was compact, but the bed was comfortable and the shower was great. And Saturday morning two minutes after...

This hotel is located on the departure level in the North terminal of Gatwick airport and is great value for money. Check-in was very fast, no forms to fill in all we needed to do is confirm our name. We stayed in double room with a window, which was comfortably compact. However, it was ideal for overnight stay in order... More

If I had read the hotel description properly I wouldn't have stayed here and I certainly wouldn't go back. The rooms are tiny and simply not my idea of a hotel room. If keeping them tiny meant they were very cheap then great, but it doesn't. That said the bed was very comfortable and the room (what there was of... More

Thank you for taking the time to review BLOC Gatwick. The BLOC Hotels concept is relatively new to the UK and we entirely understand may not be for everyone. We offer compact rooms starting from 9.5 square meters and provide everything needed for a short stay in central locations, removing excess space and unnecessary extras. I am delighted you enjoyed...

Flight missed owing to an accident on the line and yotel consequently full the next best option for a Gatwick night was bloc hotel. The price was an eye-watering £144, advantage no doubt taken of the scarcity. At a comparable price it might have been the equal of yotel, its Egyptian cotton sheets and relative space counting in its favour.... More

Thank you for your review of BLOC Gatwick. We have a large selection of room types available, from your description it seems you had booked our VIP room which is our largest room at 22sq meters, offering large corner window views, super king-size bed, a nespresso machine and Armani bathrooms. The price for this room is higher than our smaller... More

Very convenient for a early flight, small but perfectly formed comes to mind. Comfortable bed to watch the planes go by - with no noise! I am suprised that the technology involved doesn't allow you to set an alarm call - that would be our only complaint.

Thank you for your review of BLOC Gatwick. I am delighted you found our hotel convenient for an early flight and enjoyed the high-specification sound proofing. The majority of our guests use their personal devices to set wake up alarms, however should this not be possible, alarm clocks are available to borrow from reception. Once again thank you for your...

enjoyed a short stay enroute to the Middle East on Business. the fact you are in the airport building and near the shuttle link to North Terminal makes life a whole lot easier, especially when you are on an early flight. I am a lounge user so the lack of breakfast caused no issue as I secured that elsewhere. One... More

Room was very small but it was exactly what we wanted and very quiet. Room had all new mod cons and the shower room was divine!!! Closeness to the airport was brilliant as it was directly in the South Terminal building.

Positive points: Comfortable bed Quiet Good air conditioning Convenient for South Terminal passengers Negative: Expensive - I paid £64. Fairer price would have been £30 for this "cabin" Tiny - bed covered the length of the cabin. Hardly any room to stand up. No space for luggage Difficult to understand receptionist with minimal instructions on how to use air conditioning... More
