Enough food to feed an army
If you're just looking for a quick, continental bite, there's plenty to tempt you at the Airport Inn's breakfast buffet: cereals, toast, pastries, yoghurts and fruit are all available, with tea, coffee and juice to wash it all down with. Those with a heartier appetite will be satisfied too, with the Airport Inn serving up all the traditional hot breakfast options. Help yourself to as much sausage and bacon as you like. Breakfast is priced at £9.95 for Continental and £11.95 for English.
- Breakfast: 6am to 10am
- Dinner: 5pm to 10pm
Children are definitely at the head of the table in Harriet's Restaurant. Their Pirate's Paradise menu doesn't just feature a shipload of dishes - from sausage and mash to penne carbonara - there's a treasure hunt and pictures to colour in on the back too. But adults needn't feel cheated - okay, there's no colouring to do, but you'll find the food enough of a work of art in itself.The full menu features steaks, meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, pasta and risotto - though we struggled to get past the starters, there were so many things we wanted to have. We reckon we'd begin with baked goat's cheese on toasted French bloomer bread with onion marmalade and a balsamic glaze, before moving on to chicken tagliatelle in a green pesto and cream sauce with parmesan - or maybe the smoked haddock and gruyere fish cake with lemon mayonnaise, French fries and rocket. Dessert would be a chocolate brownie with vanilla pod ice cream - nom. Prices start from £2.95 for a starter, £9.95 for a main and £4.95 for a dessert. The children's menu costs £4.50 for two courses and £6.50 for three courses. Dinner is served from 5pm to 10pm.
I have stayed at the Airport Inn since it was a Best Western hotel. Always OK until this time. My room was in parts in a very bad state of repair with paper peeling off the walls. Air conditioning broken but a fan was provided. Restaurant was closed in the morning so breakfast had to be ordered, no buffet. Food good, staff good. Iâ€™ll give it one more chance!Frau Amler (Gatwick Airport Inn)
I suppose you get what you pay for but I would not recommend this hotel. The Reception staff were friendly and helpful, the barman less so. The hotel needs a thorough refurbishment, my bathroom was a disgrace. The restaurant was closed and only bar meals available. My meal was unpleasant. There was not a very good atmosphere in the place and I will not be staying there again.Mr Heuvel (Gatwick Airport Inn)
We have stayed at this hotel several times, but this time were disappointed that the room was looking rather tired. There was no BBC on TV so we could watch two programmes we wanted to see. We had dinner which in the past has always been fine, but this time very disappointing. We would not stay here again.Mr Kloubert (Gatwick Airport Inn)
It all went well. Transport was prompt + easy. The meals were good + the room was quiet + comfortable. The staff were friendly + helpful too.Herr Roik (Gatwick Airport Inn)
Arrived by Airport bus late afternoon and settled in to a comfortable room. Had already eaten so didnâ€™t order a meal this time but have done in the past when we have brought a group. Had a good nights sleep before leaving at 04.15 to catch Airport bus. All went smoothly, staff helpful.Herr Schmerbach (Gatwick Airport Inn)

Food is also available in the bar from 11am to 10.45pm: there's an extensive menu of snacks, soup, sandwiches, panini, baked potatoes, salads, pizzas, burgers, mains and desserts. The room service menu is very similar: most of it's available from 8am to 11pm, but some dishes are available 24 hours a day. There's a £3 charge for room service though, on top of the cost of your food.
