Having stayed at the Birmingham hotel I was really pleased to see they have opened a new one at Gatwick. I knew what to expect - compact rooms with a great modern finish and everything you need for a short stay. As we were flying early in the morning this was incredibly convenient, I couldn't believe how close their reception was to passport control! If you want to start your flight in a good mood then this is certainly one way to do it.

In short, great concept, good value, super convenient. Highly recommended.

My partner and I had an early morning flight, and didn't want to spend too much money on a hotel at Gatwick. Found this gem on Booking.com. Once we checked in, we were able to head over to the Weatherspoons and have dinner and a drink, then heading to Boots to stock up on things that I forgot to pack (Contact lens solution - hello!). Super convenient...if I didn't have a bag to check, we could have easily fell out of bed and gone straight into security without missing on much beauty sleep. Not a large room, but really doesn't need to be. I loved the modern decor. The towels were excellent!

Room Tip: We had a room without a window which we were fine with...if you are one who might get worried about this sort of thing, make sure to get a room with a window (there are options).

Thank you for the great review, we are so pleased you found the hotel convenient and perfect for an early morning flight.
The concept is relatively new to the UK, designed with the frequent business/leisure traveller in mind, giving what is needed for a short stay in a central location. I am delighted to hear you enjoyed this concept and do hope you took advantage of our exclusive 'Just Around the BLOC' discount leaflet for the surrounding shops and restaurants of Gatwick Airport.

We hope to welcome you back to BLOC again soon, thank you again for taking the time to review our new hotel.

Stayed here recently ahead of an early flight. Hotel as expected, small compact room with everything you need. The fit out is sleek and modern, towels were fluffy and huge. The rooms are well sound proofed therefore you do not get disturbed by neighboring rooms or the lift noises. The location in the airport is great, right near security in the south terminal. Only downside was that each time we left out room the door locked and then the door key card would not allow us to re-enter, therefore had to get reception to keep letting us back in. Whilst they were apologetic they didn't offer a solution. Would recommend this as place to stay before/after a flight. Good value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to write a kind, helpful review on BLOC Gatwick.
I am sorry to hear you had an issue with the locks, this would have been as a result of the electronic 'Do Not Disturb' button being pressed prior to leaving the room. This electronic functionality has since been removed and Do Not Disturb signs to hang on door handle introduced in its place.

I am so pleased you enjoyed the BLOC concept, combining smart, design-led accommodation with honest pricing in a very central location. Thank you again for your review and we hope to welcome you back to our hotel in the near future.

The positives are: it's clean with comfortable beds, good TV and inside the airport. There are a good choice of restaurants & take-aways nearby in south terminal. The reception staff are very friendly & helpful.
The negatives: the room is small & it is just like being in a block with no windows, so may not suit everyone; the shower takes some working out to ensure you are not drowned from the ceiling & being a wet room water goes everywhere. There are no electric sockets anywhere near a mirror - makes using hair appliances difficult.

Thank you for your positive review on BLOC Gatwick.
Sorry you had trouble finding the power sockets within the room, there are double power sockets located opposite the large mirror as you enter the bedrooms, this is the case in all of our Sleep, Vista and Smart room types.
We are glad you enjoyed our extra-long king size beds and found our location within the South Terminal building convenient. Your comments on our helpful Receptionists will be passed onto the team, thank you. We hope to welcome you back to BLOC again in the near future.

Better than I was expecting, fluffy white towels, comfy bed and flat screen TV, all perfect for an early flight. Also right next to m&s for snacks. Excellent value and great location. All very compact but for an overnight stay, great
