(3 star hotel)
including 8 days parking
from the airport
A spacious hotel to fit all your entourage
Travelling in a large group? Stag do, hen night or just a large family? Then the Britannia Airport Inn is perfect, with suites that can sleep up to seven people! There's plenty of parking and lots of seats in the restaurant and bar. Still, even if you're not bringing the whole family, you'll still love being just one mile from the airport at this Gatwick hotel.
If you've got lots of people arriving by car, then the Airport Inn hotel car park is multi-storey and on-site. Park your car up, stay the night in the hotel, then jump on a shuttlebus direct to the terminal in the morning. You'll have enough chaos getting all your party to the airport at the same time without complicated parking arrangements!
Poor welcome and ambience Smell of tobacco smoke in the lifts dark and dingy corridors. Over hot rooms no way of cooling. Very expensive drinks and food for what is a 2 star hotel at most.Mr Meager (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
Everything was fine. Only stayed for one night prior to a flight early the next morning. Had no complaints and surprisingly quiet considering being so close to Gatwick.Mr Kennison (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
Good connections with Gatwick express and shuttle to the airport. I liked the way your restaurant was open until eleven. I loved the swans in your towel arrangement.Mrs King (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
Booking was easy, rooms and facilities were good for the price, shuttle bus easy to find and journeys from and to the airport were short. Staff were friendly and helpful. We also had dinner in the evening, with reasonable choices, excellent service and good value. Our only quibble was that the corridor smelt of cigarette smoke - perhaps smoking/non smoking rooms are not separated. All in all, our stay made an early flight much pleasanter and more manageable.Mrs Crisp (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
The hotel staff were good, the chap on reception, couldn't have been more helpful at 4.30 putting my cases on busMrs Creasey (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)

As if that wasn't enough, the Airport Inn has soundproofed windows in the spacious rooms for a great night's sleep. There's free wifi throughout the hotel and even 24-hour room service. Downstairs there's a friendly restaurant and bar. You really couldn't ask for more to get your holiday off to a great start.
We recommend the Airport Inn for:
Group travel - Triple, quad rooms and seven-person suites mean you don't have to split up during your stay, but still have enough space so you won't be tripping over each other. The rest of the hotel is built to accommodate large groups too.
Families - Along with the extra space, the Airport Inn offers free cots and high chairs, and a play area. The restaurant has early-evening service and a children's menu with activity packs to keep them entertained. Generally, the hotel welcomes children and families, so you won't feel like outcasts.
Comfort and convenience - The hotel is large enough that you'll never feel cramped, quiet despite being so close to the airport and the rooms are very comfortable, so you're sure a great night's sleep. Then, in the morning, it's just a quick hop to the airport.
