The room, although small, was adequate for what we needed. Having an early flight the following day, staying at this hotel allowed us to be able to get up and check-in within 30 minutes. There are plenty of places to eat in the evening, and the room itself had a wet room should you want to shower in the morning...

Good value for money, very convenient, clean, quiet, comfortable bed and friendly service. We booked with airport parking which was very easy and we got fast track through security included. Would definitely stay again.

I love this place for an easy get away if you're on an early morning flight from Gatwick. Rooms are small but they are comfy and basically all you're doing is sleeping here so there is no need for anything more. The staff we encountered were all helpful and allowed us to check in early as our room was already...

This the first time I have stayed at a Bloc hotel and an unlikely to return. Stayed here due to its proximity to the South terminal we have always departed from the North before and stay at a Premier inn. It is a modern hotel and is clean and functional. The bathrooms are the worst feature, they are essentially a...

Booked as it's right next to departures . Very clean, comfy and the right size for overnight stay. Checking staff where efficient and lift takes you right up. Rooms are. It far from the lift. Entrance to BLOC on all floors. Reception on level 3

After a 10 hour flight from Vegas I wasn't looking forward to killing 6 hours in the airport before my flight home. Priced up the Gatwick lounge and it was £70 for 3 hours for 2 of us. Chanced my arm here and was delighted to be able to book a room from 11am till 4pm for £34!! Easy check...

I have stayed overnight in the Bloc Hotel many times prior to setting off on an early morning flight. I have always found this hotel to be reasonably priced. Rooms that I have stayed in have been very clean and beds really comfy. The hotel is very short distance from Departures and a wide variety of cafes, restaurants, sops etc.,

To describe this hotel as convenient is an understatement even though I was flying out from the North Terminal my stay took the stress out of catching an early morning flight. From the moment I checked in the whole stay was perfect. The check-in took less than a minute. The room was clean, spacious and the bed was incredibly comfortable....

Spent a night in a comfortable room with a window (unexpected surprise) and a good size double bed (which can comfortably sleep two adults|) Overall experience was very positive. Having tea or coffee available in the room would've been a nice addition to a well rounded set of features.

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel and it was a dreadful experience. We checked in, were given a room number and key and set off to the room. The key opened the door immediately, there was a scream from the room and we found we had woken a woman who was already asleep in the bed. My husband...
