The hotel that looks big and acts big but feels like home
Formerly the Ramada Plaza, Sandman Signature at London Gatwick in Crawley has all the benefits of a big hotel, but it sets out to deliver the kind of intimate, friendly atmosphere youd find in your own home. The Sandman Signature is flexible enough to suit the needs of both family and business travellers, making sure you're fully at home from the moment you cross the threshold.
Only used the airport hotel parking this time, but the Ramada Gatwick was excellent with no problems.Mrs Marshall (Gatwick Sandman Signature)
Everything was great!!! The hotel was superior, at a fantastic price. Definitely would book my hotels through holiday extras again.Mr Brown (Gatwick Sandman Signature)
Very nice hotel and room. Pleasant stay before our holiday. Would definitely use again. Restaurant abit over priced, but nice food.Mrs Deacon (Gatwick Sandman Signature)
The hotel was fantastic and the staff were very helpful and professional. I have used similar discount sites before and have usually felt that the rooms and services which I have received have not been to the same standard as someone paying full price. OMr Minnis (Gatwick Sandman Signature)
Hotel staff did not have details of our breakfast already included had to go on my Iphone to get the email to prove it. Also the road runners taxi service made the mistake and went to pick us up at the hotel when we were at the airport and tried to say weMr Kernohan (Gatwick Sandman Signature)

Expect a warm welcome
The Sandman Signature is one of the larger Gatwick airport hotels, but it operates as if it were much smaller, with a focus on unhurried, quality customer service. From the moment you arrive, youll be made to feel welcome by the friendly staff, who are keen to help you with whatever you need to get your holiday off to a relaxing start.
Easy to find, easy to get away
The Sandman Signature is an excellent choice for those travelling to Gatwick airport by car. Located just a four-minute drive from junction 10 of the M23, it is almost impossible to miss when driving in from the motorway, and there are lots of different parking options to chose from once youre there. Book your vehicle into one of the Gatwick airport long-stay car parks, just a few minutes drive away, or for the ultimate in parking convenience, choose the Gatwick Maple Manor Meet and Greet parking service and your car will be picked up from the Sandman Signature and returned to you at either the north or the south terminal when you land. If youre coming by public transport, Three Bridges rail station is just a 10-minute walk away, or about £5 in a taxi.
The Sandman Signature's restaurant has a friendly atmosphere and a wide-ranging, high-quality menu for both lunch and dinner, as well as an inviting bar area. Theres free wifi in the lobby, bar and restaurant, and a gym. Handy for any forgotten holiday must-haves, theres also a huge, 24-hour Tesco Extra just a five-minute walk away.
We recommend the Sandman Signature for:
Families All the hotels rooms are extremely spacious and, with double, twin, triple and family choices, groups of any size can be easily accommodated. There are also plenty of interconnecting rooms, so the kids can even have a room of their own, and children of all ages are allowed in the bar until 10pm.
Food and drink The food in the Arts restaurant is of excellent quality and reasonably priced. The same menu is served in the Club bar, giving you the option of foregoing a formal restaurant atmosphere for more relaxed surroundings. Theres also a good selection of wines and the bar is open until late.
Parking Anyone can park for free in the hotels car park for up to 30 minutes, so unloading luggage wont cost you a penny and from the Sandman Signature's only a short drive to the Gatwick airport's long-stay car parks. Alternatively, leave your car at the hotel for the duration of your holiday and use the regular bus service to reach the terminal. Maple Manor Meet and Greet parking service also operates from the hotel, picking up your car from here and returning it to you at either the north or the south terminal on your return.
The forgetful The lobby of the Sandman Signature has a handy vending machine packed with holiday essentials, including toothpaste, shaving gel, batteries and even mobile phone SIM cards. Theres also a 24-hour Tesco Extra just five minutes walk away, which is stocked with everything from sun cream to clothing if youve forgotten anything, theyre sure to be selling it here.
