(4 star hotel)
including 8 days parking
from the airport
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.
- "The hotel was close to the airport and the bus was there first thing in the morning and prompt again when we returned. "
Mrs Lorraine, 02 Nov 2010
- "This was the best airport hotel we've stayed in. It was clean and spacious and the staff were really helpful. Also we felt safe leaving our car parked there while we were away. Excellent."
Mr Tanzilli, 26 Jun 2010
- "The Holiday Inn Gatwick was great and the staff very helpful. The pre-booked taxi was great and more convenient than the bus. Great start and end to holiday."
Mrs Baker, 18 Aug 2010
- "Although our return journey was delayed by three days, Holiday Inn responded helpfully and our car was waiting for us even though it was midnight on a Sunday !"
