Hi, Im Kate Jarvis, one of Holiday Extras dedicated team who try every hotel we recommend. Ive slept in the beds, eaten in the restaurants, sipped drinks in every bar and even worked out in the gym. And I can promise you that the Hilton at Gatwick easily deserves all its 4 stars, being 5 hassle-free minutes stroll from the check-in desks. Isnt it reassuring to know that we test every hotel and car park that we recommend?
Affordable luxury metres from the South terminal. One of our most popular hotels, the four-star Hilton at Gatwick airport is connected to the South terminal by a covered walkway. You're just an unhurried five-minute stroll from the check-in desks.
Unless you pitch a tent on the runway, you simply cant sleep closer to the planes. And the Hilton's extremely convenient for the North terminal too - it's just two minutes away on the free monorail, which runs every three minutes, 24 hours a day. If you want to roll out of bed and straight into the airport, this is the hotel for you.
Easy to find, impossible to beat
If youre driving to the airport, the Hilton couldnt make it easier to park. For the ultimate in convenience try our Gatwick airport Meet and Greet service, which collects your car from outside the hotel and brings it to you when you fly back from your holiday. If youd prefer to park your own car, we have a secured car park at Gatwick South terminal, which is a very short bus ride away. If youre coming by public transport the Hilton is a five-minute walk from the station, undercover all the way.
Top quality facilities
The Gatwick Hilton has two excellent restaurants, two relaxing bars, a Costa coffee shop, a business centre and a gym. Whats more, each of the more than 800 rooms at the Hilton Gatwick has internet access, satellite TV and pay-per-view movies. The only problem youll have is finding the time for it all before you fly off on holiday.

Your simplest and most convenient option if you're parking at Gatwick airport is to let someone else do it for you!

Bedrooms at the Gatwick Hilton
The first thing youll notice about your room at the Gatwick Hilton is the peace and quiet. Even though theres an airport right outside your windows, those windows are soundproofed and triple-glazed so you can watch the planes taking off and landing without hearing a thing.
A standard room that tops all standards
Weve tried it ourselves and not only do you get a great nights sleep, you get a surprise in the morning when you remember youre right in the middle of one of the worlds busiest airports.
The room was excellent with the added bonus of being in the airport
The rooms are everything youd expect from a Hilton warm, elegant and sumptuously comfortable with every possible convenience at your fingertips.
Every room has an en-suite bathroom with La Source toiletries, a plasma screen TV with pay-per-view movies, internet access, a telephone, a radio and MP3 player dock, a hairdryer, tea and coffee and air conditioning.
Standard double rooms at the Gatwick Hilton are large and luxurious at 23m2. Quiet, comfortable and very spacious for two, these beautiful rooms come with every modern convenience as standard. Relax with a book in the easy chair, spread your belongings out on the desk and sink blissfully into the big double bed at the end of the day.
The Hiltons family rooms are even more spacious at 52m2 and have a large family bathroom and loads of storage. Standard family rooms come with one double and two single beds, and theres also the option of adding a cot or a roll-out bed so you can comfortably fit in up to three kids as well as mum and dad.
The Gatwick Hilton also offers compact family rooms, which are still much larger than the standard doubles at 32m2. Compact family rooms have one double bed and two bunks, so there's plenty of space for two adults and two children.
Finally, the Hilton has a number of connecting rooms which are perfect for parents who want to keep the kids near at hand but enjoy some privacy for themselves.
The Gatwick Hilton also offers triple rooms with three single beds, which are suitable for three adults.
Dining at the Gatwick Hilton
We recommend you reserve extra room (in your tummy)
It's worth staying overnight at the Gatwick Hilton just to enjoy the food. The Hilton boasts two excellent restaurants, two bars serving food and a Costa coffee shop offering cakes and hot drinks. For a really great start to your holiday, spend your evening at Amy's or the Garden Restaurant - and be sure not to miss the Hilton's world-class breakfast buffet before you fly.
The Garden Restaurant
The light and spacious Garden Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner every day - and you can save money on both when you book through Holiday Extras. Plus, children under 10 eat free - from a special children's menu created by child nutrition expert Annabel Karmel - as long as they're with an adult who is having a meal too.

However you like to start the day, the Garden Restaurant's huge, delicious buffet breakfast will hit the spot. There's English breakfast, cold meats, cheeses, fresh fruit salads, a dozen different types of cereal and toast and we've never seen so many pots of jam in one place! Breakfast starts at 5.30am, so linger over fresh tea, coffee and fruit juices if you have the time, or be in and out in under 10 minutes if you're in a hurry for an early flight (we've done it, it's really that quick). You couldn't hope for a better start to your day - or to your holiday.
If you're looking for plenty of choice, dinner at the Garden Restaurant won't disappoint. We recommend the buffet, a nightly banquet of more than 100 dishes, from seafood starters and soup of the day to fresh salads and roasts from the carvery - plus a whole counter of delicious desserts and the hotel's extensive drinks menu. You could eat at the Garden Restaurant buffet every night for a month and never have the same meal twice.
Alternatively, try the Garden Restaurant's a la carte menu, which features the Hilton burger, flash-fried tiger prawns and succulent Scottish steaks, as well as four different curries, pizzas and pasta dishes.

Refreshment at the Gatwick Hilton
Drink in a bar that's at the top of its game on top of the world
A wine list running to more than 50 bottles. Hot fresh coffee and tea. Cocktails, shaken and stirred. Draught and bottled beers. Service until 2am. If youre looking to start your holiday early with a few drinks, youve come to the right place.

Part cocktail bar, part cafe and part wine bar, Amys has something for everyone.
- Every day
- 6pm to 11pm
If you want a lighter bite for lunch, Amys serves snacks every day from noon until 5pm. If youre looking for a comfortable spot to spend some time in the afternoon, its a great place to catch up with your emails over a coffee, thanks to the wireless internet access. And Amys Bar sits right next to Amys Restaurant, so its the perfect spot to unwind before dinner or retire to afterwards with a cocktail or two.
The Hilton at Gatwick was lovely, from the staff to the meal in the evening. It was worth every penny.
Charlie Frys Sports Bar
Charlie Frys Sports Bar is a relaxed, informal pub-style bar on the ground floor of the Gatwick Hilton. With big screen TVs showing all the latest sports and a wide range of beers, wines, cocktails and soft drinks, Charlie Frys is a great spot for a quiet pint before or after dinner.
- 7 Days a week
- 5pm to 11pm
The atmosphere is friendly and the bar staff very accommodating we asked them to change channels for the football one evening and they were happy to switch one of the TVs over for the match.
Charlie Frys is right next to the Garden Restaurant, so its easy to pop in for a drink before dinner or finish your drinks at your own pace after youve enjoyed your meal.
We ate in the wrong restaurant and paid for our dinner and had to leave to early for breakfast so will deal directly with the Hilton in future..
Yes very helpful although I was disappointed to find I could not claim my Hilton Honours points. I had' realised you had to book direct with Hilton.
We arrived quite late and left very early in the morning so did not get to experience other than the room. However, everything was very satisfactory and very convenient to get to our flight early in the morning.
Booking in was fine but my room was in a very noisy location - would have expected a Hilton to have installed some means of muffling noise of travellers coming and going at all hours. However it was the closest to the Checkin in the South Terminal so that was the only plus.
The only reason we stay at the Gatwick Hilton Hotel is for convenience to be right there at the airport. The Hotel is nothing special. Restaurants are dreadful and bar prices are high. Every time we stay there they forget to give us a wake up call.....not that we really need one as we use our mobile phone alarms but it has become a point of principle now!
