Enough food to feed an army
If you're just looking for a quick, continental bite, there's plenty to tempt you at the Airport Inn's breakfast buffet: cereals, toast, pastries, yoghurts and fruit are all available, with tea, coffee and juice to wash it all down with. Those with a heartier appetite will be satisfied too, with the Airport Inn serving up all the traditional hot breakfast options. Help yourself to as much sausage and bacon as you like. Breakfast is priced at £9.95 for Continental and £11.95 for English.
- Breakfast: 6am to 10am
- Dinner: 5pm to 10pm
Children are definitely at the head of the table in Harriet's Restaurant. Their Pirate's Paradise menu doesn't just feature a shipload of dishes - from sausage and mash to penne carbonara - there's a treasure hunt and pictures to colour in on the back too. But adults needn't feel cheated - okay, there's no colouring to do, but you'll find the food enough of a work of art in itself.The full menu features steaks, meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, pasta and risotto - though we struggled to get past the starters, there were so many things we wanted to have. We reckon we'd begin with baked goat's cheese on toasted French bloomer bread with onion marmalade and a balsamic glaze, before moving on to chicken tagliatelle in a green pesto and cream sauce with parmesan - or maybe the smoked haddock and gruyere fish cake with lemon mayonnaise, French fries and rocket. Dessert would be a chocolate brownie with vanilla pod ice cream - nom. Prices start from £2.95 for a starter, £9.95 for a main and £4.95 for a dessert. The children's menu costs £4.50 for two courses and £6.50 for three courses. Dinner is served from 5pm to 10pm.
Yes, and it was a great pleasure to depart and return to Gatwick. Service was excellent in duty free stores, resturants and facilities clean.Ms Bartholomew (Gatwick Airport Inn)
Restaurant was very cold, 1 electric heater in there.Mr Southwell (Gatwick Airport Inn)
Reception staff could barely speak english.
Room was ok, just a little cold as heating was not working sufficiently.
Easy for transfers to Gatwick - secure car parking on site - food, drink and snacks available on siteMr Finch (Gatwick Airport Inn)
Hotel was fine for the price paid. Bed was comfortable, which was the main thing. Just be aware you're paying for, and receiving a cheap option. Don't expect a luxurious room. (Our room smelled quite old and musky). The hotel staff were kind enough to send up an extra towel though. I don't have any issues considering what we paid.Mr Mccombe (Gatwick Airport Inn)
Eveything was fine except the shuttle service to the airport. When it did not arrive for more than half an hour, I asked for a taxi. Unfortunately that also took an additional half hour.Mr Mathur (Gatwick Airport Inn)

Food is also available in the bar from 11am to 10.45pm: there's an extensive menu of snacks, soup, sandwiches, panini, baked potatoes, salads, pizzas, burgers, mains and desserts. The room service menu is very similar: most of it's available from 8am to 11pm, but some dishes are available 24 hours a day. There's a £3 charge for room service though, on top of the cost of your food.
