A hotel straight from the heart

If the Sofitel Gatwick were any closer to the runway, it would have wings and an engine. It's connected to the North terminal by a covered walkway - but the rooms are so perfectly quiet and tranquil that you'd never know it. Triple glazing and excellent soundproofing keep things whisper quiet at this particular Gatwick airport hotel. But if you want to indulge your inner anorak with a bit of plane spotting you couldn’t be better placed.

Four-star luxury in a five-star location

If you want to be as close to check-in as possible, then the Sofitel is the place where you need to stay. It's the only hotel connected to the North terminal: check-in is just a two-minute walk away along the covered walkway. The South terminal is just two more minutes away on the free monorail, which runs every three minutes.

Customer Reviews:

I was given a double bed, whilst it was lovely and soft, the mattress its self needs to be changed. As you fall into the dips , so not so comfortable. I arrived at 3 am , that was all fine. the waitress got the wrong door at 7.30 and woke me by banging on the door with breakfast meant for the the next room. An hour later I was woken by housekeeping walking in, so not very happy with them!!

Mrs Ducker (Gatwick Sofitel)

I left my travel alarm on departure and when I enquired on my return 10 days later, they had it available for me. Fantastic!

Mrs Robson (Gatwick Sofitel)

everything went very well stay at Sofitel very comfortable and convenient. Staff amazing as usual especially as we told them we would be arriving late as our flight from Dubai landed at Heathrow-and we had a car transfer
that was well organised and efficient

Mrs Percy (Gatwick Sofitel)

The one thing that was difficult for us was that we arrived by train, and would have liked clearer instructions about getting to the hotel from Gatwick station. We had to ask several people; it was bewildering. I had phoned for help, but your staff were clearly more used to people arriving by car.

Mrs Hull (Gatwick Sofitel)

I've used you numerous times now, it has always been the same simple no fuss parking. Excellent transfer to terminal. Exactly as it should be.

London Gatwick Sofitel News:

An air of excitement

A high, spacious atrium greets you as you arrive in the lobby – a ten-storey open space that forms the heart of the Sofitel. It’s a bustling little world, with large luggage trolleys constantly wheeling in and out, and four panoramic lifts shooting up and down. There’s an air of quiet excitement - a hum of activity, of international travellers going about their business, attended to by experienced, professional staff.

We recommend the London Gatwick Sofitel for:

Location. Whether you come into Gatwick at the North or South terminal, the Sofitel is only minutes away. Walk through the covered walkway from the hubbub of the terminal straight into a tranquil and spacious hotel.

Choice of great restaurants. You’ll find good wines, and food that ranges from haute cuisine to hearty meals that the kids will appreciate in the Sofitel's three restaurants, La Brasserie, the Urban Cafe and the Gatwick Oriental. The Urban Cafe and La Brasserie serve excellent breakfasts, lunches and dinners; on the other side of the atrium the Gatwick Oriental serves a wide range of south-east Asian dishes. And there's even a fitness room with cardiovascular equipment and weights for you to burn off any excess calories.

Excellent rooms. All the 518 rooms at the Sofitel are luxurious; many of them are super-luxurious. You'll want for nothing when it comes to both comfort and style. There are interconnecting suites for familes, and rooms that can be used for one or two children as well as a couple. It’s a child-friendly hotel, well used to catering for younger guests.


You can check in from 2pm. You must check out by noon.
