Location - Although it's only 10 minutes from the airport, the Ifield Court is in the middle of the countryside and surrounded by beautiful grounds - it feels a world away from the busy terminal.
Personal service - It's a family-run hotel and the owners can be found somewhere on the premises most of the time if you need them for anything.

Getting to and from Gatwick airport
Park in the hotel car park overnight - it's included in the price. In the morning, drive to Purple Parking on your way to the airport. Then hop on one of the big, blue transfer buses to the airport - buses run to both the North and South terminal, and there's plenty of room for all of your luggage. They run every 20 minutes, take 10 to 15 minutes and run 24 hours a day.
When you return, the Purple Parking transfer bus will pick you up outside the terminal and take you back to the car park where your car will be waiting for you in a departure bay - ready for you to head on home.
