3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I always try to book in here over the Hilton or the Travel Inn. I find the hotel spacious and pleasant with friendly staff and more of an international, tolerant and welcoming feel and not that impersonnal treatment that appears to be standard within the M25. The rooms are well appointed and the restaurants and bars in the lobby are... More

The gym is tiny however - I expected more space and equipment ... Just me and a guy in the gym the size of a postage stamp felt a bit weird Restaurants felt a little... More

Love staying at this hotel before flying out on holiday. So relaxed to arrive night before. Lovely room. We were lucky and upgraded to lounge floor. So nice to know we only have to walk across to terminal in the morning. Car parking is so easy too. Highly recommend

Stayed here the night before our flight. Our room was overlooking the carpark but was extremely quiet and the bed suited us both just fine. We had a meal in the hotel the night before which we both enjoyed and the staff were very friendly. We were flying from the South side at Gatwick and the hotel is on the... More

Stayed here for one night prior to a flight. The room was beautiful and modern with a tv in the bathroom. The restaurant was unexpected, as i had a taster menu and the food was so so good. would recommend to anyone and everyone. A very rare find for an airport hotel.

With an early morning flight, staying the night before at the Sofitel ensures a great start to the holiday. Efficient check-in, easy parking and a good restaurant, an early morning flight is not a problem. Short walk from the hotel to the terminal. Unexpected upgrade as guest of the day was a very welcome bonus.

The Sofitel chain maintains a good high standard. I prefer Heathrow rather than Gatwick but this hotel delivers what you require in terms of friendly and efficient staff, very clean rooms with comfy beds that will help you start or finish your trip. For us we did both. Flight times meant a stay before and after our holidays but everything... More
