The staff were attentive and no question was too much for them to handle. Karan in particular was extremely helpful and kept making sure we had everything we needed, and even prepared separate lunches for our allergy sufferers! The conference room we used was fully functional and fit for purpose. Many Thanks, Jordan

Expensive but best location for parking, just walk across the causeway to airport. Very clean, didn't care about the room, one night only to get head down for early flight next day, good choice of restaurants and bars, again expensive but you're paying for location. Glad we stayed and would do so again - recommended

This hotel is perfectly placed for a pretracel stop over. The checkin staff were charming and the room was clean and well equipped. The bathroom was spotless. On the surface all was great......until 5.30 a.m. When the shuttle between the north and south terminaks started every few minutes. It was impossible to slerp after that, which would be fine if...

We stayed here again after trying it in March. Well worth it. Rooms very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The restaurants are expensive but the hotel itself makes it worth it. Staff are great and we will certainly return.

Stayed overnight prior to flight using Meet & Greet for parking. Hotel is easy to locate, is clean, convenient (it is a walk to the terminal) & comfortable. Good restaurant at reasonable price for airport location.

I have been working at Gatwick for the past 2 months and have stayed at the Sofitel the whole time. So rather than just be a visitor for an occasional night as most airport visitors are, I've actually lived there! I have to say I can't fault the hotel or the staff. The people are friendly and polite and nothing...

If you are ever stranded at Gatwick Airport and need overnight accommodation, don't hesitate to book this great hotel. We missed our flight due to a cancelled connection and were in a distressed state, searching for a room. We checked other hotels and were pleasantly surprised that Sofitel was only slightly more expensive than even Yotel. It's really very luxurious...

Thank Dormather

“Ask for a room facing into the Atrium of you want a very quiet room. Rooms directly above the airport shuttle can be a little more noisy.”
