Beneath the surface of the Ibis Gatwick lurks more a touch of familial warmth. If you arrive too late for dinner, theres a 24-hour snack menu in the bar; then theres an all-you-can-eat continental breakfast in the morning from 4am. Its all rather like going to stay with your aunt who tries to feed you up at all times of the day. You can even take your pets, which might be just as well - a spot of dog-walking will probably be in order after all those croissants.

Check-in is from 12:00, so it's ideal if you'd like to beat the traffic and find that holiday mood a few hours earlier.
Whatever the time of day, the Ibis serves tasty snacks to fill a small hole and light meals to savour. The restaurant and bar are open 24-hours a day, alcohol served until midnight. So whether it's 3 in the morning or 3 in the afternoon, you and your stomach will be well taken care of. And, you can relax and know that all of them are reasonably priced. You'll find British classics like fish and chips and fisherman's pie, as well as a well-stocked bar full of your favourite beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks.
Stay connected throughout the hotel with free wifi. In fact, it's one of the few hotels at Gatwick that won't charge you a penny extra for internet access.
When you're fed and ready for bed, jump under the cosy covers. The rooms are basic but practical, each with an en-suite bathroom, a flatscreen TV with Freeview, hairdryer and all you need to make tea and coffee.

For something a little novelty, the Ibis offers a free Sleep Art app for iPhones.

Wake up on the right side of the bed with a delicious breakfast. You'll find English and continental favourites, like eggs, bacon, sausages, toast, fruit, yoghurt and croissants. Breakfast is even served as early as 04:00 until 10:00 on weekdays, and 04:00 to 12:00 on weekends. It's ideal if you're catching an early flight and don't want to travel on an empty stomach.
