On the occasions we travel through Gatwick we always stay overnight at the airport and without doubt, the Sofitel is our favourite. Yes, the hotel is superbly situated - a very short walk if you fly from terminal 2 and all under cover.
But apart from that the hotel itself is geared up to please the weary traveller! The lobby and the bar are as pleasant as one can expect from a hotel that deals with passengers descending on them at all hours of the day and night. For once, our flight left at the gentlemanly hour of 10.00 the following morning, so we were able to make the most of our excellent and well appointed bedroom, as well as to get a perfect night's sleep in a very comfortable bed.
I guess the smart thing to do, if you are holiday travellers, is to book up early in order to obtain the best rate. We probably got about £40 off the standard rate, which made the experience that much better!!
The hotel itself is spotlessly clean, which cannot be easy when you have such a turnover of largely one nighters. The bedroom was spotless as was the bathroom. Would definitely recommend it if you want to take the hassle out of your trip.
