Without a doubt the best Gatwick hotel - great location, lovely food, helpful staff and backed by a global quality brand. Simply the best! Food is good, views nice (for an airport hotel) and design very efficient and effective. Shame ni swimming pool and internet a bit slow though...

We ended up having to spend the day in this hotel after our flight was considerably delayed and we had faced an early, but rather long journey to Gatwick. We were able to get a room with ease, despite the snow that had everyone packing into every hotel in the area. The room didn't offer particularly exciting views of the car park and drop off areas, but it was more than comfortable and represented good value for money given its location. I'd stay here again before a flight.

Worst customer service I have ever received in over 20 years of traveling. The management even had my first review removed, So this one will just focus on the lack of leadership and the ineptitude of the reservations staff. I still will ensure that my thousands of LinkedIn contacts and twitter contacts know never to use ANY Sofitel.

Lovely hotel and does what you think it will. Very convenient for an early morning flight. Check in was a breeze, as soon as someone queued up another member of staff appeared to help them. We booked through our travel agent and pre-booked the evening meal which offered more choice than i thought it would and we were stuffed after two courses. The bar is extortionate as you'd expect.

We had a room facing the airport so it was rather hypnotising watching the planes take off and land but contrary to other reviews we could hear the noise of them through the night which led to little sleep had that night. Check out was simple and when we returned collecting the car was easy too.

Will use again if have an early morning flight.

I stay for one night at that hotel. Great place, great rooms, great view (fantastic view of the airport) and everything was so perfect. There are no bad thinks or experience for that place. The hotel located into the terminal and is very easy access to the airport.

Room Tip: The rooms with the view at the airport are really quiet and have fantastic view
