(3 star hotel)
from the airport
A spacious hotel to fit all your entourage
Travelling in a large group? Stag do, hen night or just a large family? Then the Britannia Airport Inn is perfect, with suites that can sleep up to seven people! There's plenty of parking and lots of seats in the restaurant and bar. Still, even if you're not bringing the whole family, you'll still love being just one mile from the airport at this Gatwick hotel.
If you've got lots of people arriving by car, then the Airport Inn hotel car park is multi-storey and on-site. Park your car up, stay the night in the hotel, then jump on a shuttlebus direct to the terminal in the morning. You'll have enough chaos getting all your party to the airport at the same time without complicated parking arrangements!
The parking whist only for one night was virtually impossible. Sent two hours driving around looking for a space outside but could see emptycarspaces within the hotel areaMr Williams (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
Great service, great staff, nothing too much trouble, everything you want and need before your flight.Ms Glave (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
smooth and simple. Food and service at Airport Hotel a little disappointing but for the price acceptable.Mr Roff (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
we paid for dinner and breakfast, they had no record of either, although this was sorted, but only because I had my confirmations. Why did this happen?Mr Goodfellow (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)
We Stayed at Airport Inn when it was Best Western Moat House many times. The breakfast was the biggest dissapointment. The whole experience has changed for the worse. The room itself was clean but needed attention.Mr Swinford (Gatwick Airport Inn Gatwick)

As if that wasn't enough, the Airport Inn has soundproofed windows in the spacious rooms for a great night's sleep. There's free wifi throughout the hotel and even 24-hour room service. Downstairs there's a friendly restaurant and bar. You really couldn't ask for more to get your holiday off to a great start.
We recommend the Airport Inn for:
Group travel - Triple, quad rooms and seven-person suites mean you don't have to split up during your stay, but still have enough space so you won't be tripping over each other. The rest of the hotel is built to accommodate large groups too.
Families - Along with the extra space, the Airport Inn offers free cots and high chairs, and a play area. The restaurant has early-evening service and a children's menu with activity packs to keep them entertained. Generally, the hotel welcomes children and families, so you won't feel like outcasts.
Comfort and convenience - The hotel is large enough that you'll never feel cramped, quiet despite being so close to the airport and the rooms are very comfortable, so you're sure a great night's sleep. Then, in the morning, it's just a quick hop to the airport.
