Fastest checking I’ve ever had- room is modern and clean. No windows in room but was only one night- up and out at 5.30am for my flight- would def stay here again for early morning flights. The bed is huge so would happily stay as a couple

Response from Sarah O, Manager at BLOC Hotel Gatwick
Responded 12 Apr 2018
What a lovely review of BLOC Hotel Gatwick, thank you so much, it really is appreciated. I'm delighted that you had such a great stay with us at BLOC Hotel Gatwick and have such high praise for everything that you found here. We really want every guest to have the experience that you did and have tried to think of providing all those things that you really need for a night at the airport, without including any of those things that are superfluous, but you often end up paying for in more traditional airport hotels. It's particularly gratifying that you're a returning guest and have nothing but kind words to stay about our wonderful staff team. Diego and Sanford will be really pleased to have got a name check and such high praise for their 'professionalism and attentiveness'. Next time you're planning on booking, do message our Guest Relations Officer thomas@blochotels.com as he'd like to thank you personally for your loyalty to BLOC and see if he can do something to help make your next stay at BLOC Hotel Gatwick even better. With kindest regards Sarah O.

My fourth time at the BLOC and another great stay. This occasion was an early departure but I've also stayed after late arriving flights. Had an interesting view over the apron from the room this time. Location is perfect, whether using the south terminal or the north. Flying

Somehow, we ended up with a double booking at Bloc, Gatwick. And we’ve been charged twice. Olivia, the receptionist was clearly not surprised (which makes me think this poss happens frequently). She was also stunningly unhelpful, adamant in her refusal to even consider helping

The package was a good idea and a very convenient location, parking worked perfectly, the trouble was the hotel, where everything is controlled by a tablet in the room, and the internet failed (the staff including the apparent manager didn’t know how to reset it) so we couldn’t close the blind or control the lights and had no air con so it got very hot in the small rooms. Would have been great if all had worked, and who sleeps before a holiday anyway?

Is there access to food/drink outside hotel when you arrive?
The hotel is in the airport so you have easy access to places to eat in there. Just go onto the Gatwick website and look to see what's on offer. You do get a discount booklet in room that may help to reduce costs too although it depends on where you go.
