We booked a family room (2 adults, 3 children) through holidayextras for 1 nights accommodation and 15 days parking with meet and greet. Upon arrival at the Sofitel we were met immediately and our car was taken before we could barely unload all our suitcases. In fact, we were so rushed by the gentleman collecting our car that we didn't...

My Wife and I stayed at this hotel the night before our flight to Egypt early January 2017. We paid for 16 nights parking and the special offer of dinner for two at the Cafe there. This was probably our sixth or seventh time we"ve stayed there and every time gets better and better. Simplicity it"s self as you just...

Big double bedroom and very comfortable beds. Good bathroom. Coffee and tea, ironing board, hair dryer etc. Two good restaurants. Helpful staff. A very short inside walk into the airport. Stayed before the holiday and on our return.

The hotel is nice and convenient. The receptionist at check-in was very nice. The room is ok although I found the bed too soft. Suprisingly manly in a modern hotel room there were only two charging pluggs available in the room, and none by the bed side!

We stayed heer prior to flying so were here for only a matter of 10 hours. All too often with hotels of this sort, check in is tedious , check out is tedious and service is awful. NONE Of that applied here, it was a pleasure to stay and we will be back in just a few months before our...

Sofitel is an excellent airport hotel and delivers where it matters for a pre/post-flight overnight: efficient check-in; decent rooms; very comfortable beds; excellent breakfast. It is the best hotel we've used at Gatwick. It is in the north terminal but is directly next to the shuttle service for the south terminal so ideal for both. The communal areas are modern,...

We have stayed here and at the Heathrow hotel many times. Generally unless you get a deal it's very pricey and we have never slept well as room on this occasion had an easyJet tram passing the room every few mins all night. Rooms are perfect and clean. Food is good in restaurants but again high priced. We stay here...

Excellent location for an early, or not so early Gatwick flight. Rooms comfortable and well enough provided - more coffee/tea would be helpful though. Meal we pre-booked was fine and the queue for the table short. Breakfast looked expensive and we ate, as usual, in the airport. Tricky to find the hotel on our return as not well signposted. But...

This is the fifth time in five consecutive years we have stayed at Sofitel London Gatwick - there's a reason for that. An excellent hotel with quietly efficient and very helpful staff at all levels, check-in, concierge, restaurant and house keeping. Once you're checked in here, you begin to relax, your shoulders start to drop, finding comfort in the rooms,...
