Stayed here for one night and got an excellent deal with dinner included. Just 5 mins walk from the North terminal.

Room was what you would expect from a good hotel and includes tea / coffee facilities which is great for those early morning departures.

Room Tip: Book early to secure good online discounts

WE had an early morning flight 7am for a Christmas ski holiday.
Having found we were able to check in our luggage the night before & with doubts about early morning road travel ,ques & bad weather on the M25 I looked at airport hotels.
There were the usual Holiday Inn,Premier Inn & Travel Inn choices but decided to pay a little more & stay at the Sofitel............WOW how right were to make this choice.
The hotel is linked by covered bridge to the North Terminal ,we actually flew from south but the shuttle train had us from hotel reception to airport security in 10 minutes.
The rooms in the hotel all face inwards & you can look down on the resturants & bar below.
We had only booked a standard double but I can honestly say it was one of the highest standards of hotel room we have ever experienced.
The room had a huge bed ,beautiful satin percale bed linen luxurious pillows as well as complimentry tea & coffee & fresh milk stored in the fridge.
We went down for a light meal to the resturant below ,again supurb quality .
We fell into bed at 10pm only sorry that our 5am start ment we wouldnt be hurrying in the morning & not able to take advantage of all the facilities at the hotel .
We slept extremely well ,you could have heard a pin drop it was so quiet & the hotel was almost full !
Cannot wait for another early morning flight ,would even consider travelling to the hotel for a two night break ,beautiful countryside & plenty to do around Gatwick.
This hotel is in a class of its own where airport hotels are concerned.

Room Tip: Dont book direct ,we booked through booking.com I actually booked in Oct ,looked at the prices in Nov ,the price had gone down £20 so I cancelled one booking & made another. No money is taken until check in

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night and booked it through Sofitels website some months before. Check in was fast and we were given a room on a high floor as I had requested on the booking.
The room itself was clean and a good size and the huge windows were great to see out over the airport. The bed was really comfy and there were plenty of pillows. The bathroom was ideal with a good powerful shower.
The Chinese restaurant we ate in was ok. I would not rush back and it was rather expensive. As were the drinks at the bar so we only had the one.
The atrium seating area was great, felt lovely and open.
Overall this was a fab airport hotel and you hear no plane noise at all.
Great place and will stay again when going through Gatwick.

We stayed there 1 night with free parking option before a departure from LGW.

Door staff/concierge were amazing when I lost my purse in the car (stress does strange things)! Room was a standard twin but with fantastic quality super linens and 'feather bed' quality mattress. Never ever experienced such a good sleep in a hotel.

Hubby said service at bar was slow and with no customers but I had crashed.

Valet parking very good too and nice people doing the driving. Definitely takes the stress out of an early morning flight as you just go down a covered walkway into the terminal.

Room Tip: We had an inner courtyard view room high up and it was fine. Zero noise.
