Unwind and relax in style
The Gatwick Holiday Inn has always been a firm favourite for families. It's only minutes away from the North terminal and has oodles of four-bed rooms, a kids-eat-free menu and a caring team of staff. The open-plan areas have a laid-back vibe with plenty of seating for you to enjoy a relaxing drink or a bite to eat. There's no chance of the little ones getting bored here, with TVs, games, activity packs and a free two-course meal for up to two children under 13.
While the Holiday Inn is loved by families, it's also a hit with those who like the simplicity of leaving their car at the hotel during their holiday. There's loads of spaces and the car park's secured, so the start of your holiday can go without a hitch.

All was as described and easy to access. Staff were efficient and helpful. The transfer transport was both quick and convenient.Mr Purssell, 19 Feb 2015
Staff great hotel and location great, the only problem was the bed was too hard for my wife who has arthritis and the pillows also were too hard, so my wife did not sleep much, but otherwise, great.Mr Webb, 08 Feb 2015
