Gatwick Airport Hotels - FAQs
Does Gatwick airport have a hotel?
There are 3 hotels connected to Gatwick airport. The Gatwick Hilton is connected to the South terminal. The
Gatwick Sofitel and the Hampton by Hilton at Gatwick are connected to the North terminal. Each hotel is connected to the terminal by an exclusive indoor walkway and is 2-3 minutes away from check-in by foot.
All of these hotels would be a great choice whatever terminal you're flying from - thanks to the free Gatwick monorail you can travel between terminals with ease and it only takes 2 minutes!
Can you stay at Gatwick overnight?
There are 2 hotels located inside Gatwick that are available for overnight stays. There's the Yotel, located in the Arrivals hall (before security) at the South terminal and the
Bloc hotel, right next to security on the third floor of the South terminal. Please note: we don't sell either of these hotels at the moment, however, we're always keen to add quality hotels at Gatwick to our portfolio, so be sure to keep an eye out.
Can you walk between terminals at Gatwick?
We wouldn't recommend walking between the two terminals - they're a fair distance apart and there isn't a clear, set route. The quickest and easiest way to get from Gatwick North to Gatwick South is the take the inter-terminal monorail service. The monorail at Gatwick runs 24 hours a day, only takes 2 minutes and is completely FREE.
Which terminal is Sofitel Gatwick closest to?
The Sofitel hotel at Gatwick is connected to the North terminal, via an indoor walkway, just a 3-minute stroll away. If you're flying from the South terminal, the Sofitel is still a convenient choice - simply use the walkway to get to the North terminal, then catch the free monorail to the South terminal. Your transfer time in total will be around the 5 minutes mark.
Gatwick Hotels with Parking
Why should you choose one of our Gatwick airport hotels with parking?
We'll start with the most obvious and worthwhile reason that our customers choose to buy their parking and hotel as one package, and that is to save money. Let's face it, when it comes to the last few extras for your holiday everybody wants to save money, so it's worth noting that when you book your Gatwick hotel and parking as one deal it will be cheaper than if you were to book them separately.
Alongside saving money, is saving time. It's fair to say, time is precious, so knowing that when you book your Gatwick hotel and parking together it saves you the time of trawling the internet, is kinda nice.
Another comforting thought is that when you book your hotel and parking in one place it saves you the hassle of scrabbling around looking for more than one email confirmation, booking reference or directions. Everything you need is in one place, in one tidy email from Holiday Extras.
Another way of making your decision that little bit easier is knowing what products our existing customers love. We've put together a list of our most booked Gatwick hotel and parking offers:

Sofitel at Gatwick very easy access to Departures, would definitely use again.
Mr Richards, 16 Sep, 2019 (5 out of 5)
Great to have parking on site so close to airport. Food excellent and rooms good. Quick bus ride to Gatwick and easy to get back after your trip. Couldnâ€™t fault it. Thanks.
Mrs Rupp-Woerner, 16 Sep, 2019 (4.5 out of 5)
Used regularly, the overnight stay with parking at the Gatwick Sofitel hotel, continues to be both convenient and good vfm. Hotel guest and public rooms are of a high standard, whilst the choice of dining options is also good. Not cheap - but given location and accessibility to North Terminal, probably competitive. Key is to maintain future standards.
Frau Buchheit, 16 Sep, 2019 (4.5 out of 5)
Our stay and parking at Sofitel Gatwick couldnâ€™t have been better. The hotel offers a wonderful selection of restaurants & an amazing champagne bar although a 12% charge is added to the bill. Great way to start a holiday.
Mr Lichtenstein, 14 Sep, 2019 (5 out of 5)
We stayed at Stanhill Court Hotel with hotel parking for our three week holiday. We were very impressed - going from the hotel by taxi to Gatwick was much less stressful than travelling in shuttle buses.

We know that a holiday doesn't just stop at a flight and a hotel. The cost can really build up when you start adding airport parking, airport hotels and holiday insurance, so if you're interested in saving more money, take a look at the information below.
1. Ordered by price. We know a lot of people like to sort their findings in price order, so we've taken the pleasure of doing that for you. Our price table is arranged with the cheapest Gatwick hotels at the top, so if you're after a bargain, you don't have to spend time scrolling down the page.
2. A simple email. By simply signing up to receive our offers as they are released you will also gain up to 15% off your first booking. Sign Up to emails. Don't worry, we don't believe in bombarding our customers with junk emails.
3. Pre-booking is best. We cannot encourage this enough. The further in advance you book your hotel, the bigger the saving. Hotels and car parks charge a premium for turning up on the day, unfair we know! So booking online can save you up to up to 60%. E.g: a nights stay in the Ibis Gatwick will cost you £132, however, when you book the same hotel in advance with Holiday Extras it can cost as low as £69, a saving of £63! That's a lot of extra cocktails on holiday!
5. Check out our non-flexible deals. If you're sure that your travel plans aren't going to change, you can save money on deals that can't be cancelled or changed. Once you have clicked search, our results will tell you whether the offer is amendable or not. The non-amendable offers will be cheapest.
Stress-free with FREE cancellation
If you book your hotel at Gatwick as soon as your holiday is confirmed you'll get the best price, however we know life doesn't always play ball which is why all of our packages, including Gatwick hotel and parking deals, are covered by our Cancel Free policy. If something unforeseen upsets your travel plans you can cancel for free, up to 24 hours before your stay date, and we'll happily refund your money.
6. Choose a hotel where kids stay free. Costs can quickly add up when you're travelling with the whole family, which is why it's handy to know the Gatwick hotels that can help you save. Hotels like the Holiday Inn and Premier Inn A23 boast kids stay (and eat) free policies.
7. If you can, travel off-peak. If you can make a break for it around November through to March (typically the off-peak period) you can make an impressive saving on both your holiday and travel extras. If it's not possible to get away during these months, you're constrained by school holidays for example, our top tip would be book your trip around late August or early September when the peak summer prices are beginning to cool down.
8. Don't forget your sunglasses. Ok, this isn't going to save you money on your Gatwick hotel, but you don't want to have to fork out for new sunglasses do you?
