Unwind and relax in style

When it comes to choosing a Gatwick hotel, the Holiday Inn, London Gatwick Airport, has always been a firm favourite for families. It's only minutes away from the North terminal and has oodles of four-bed rooms, a kids-eat-free menu and a caring team of staff. The open-plan areas have a laid-back vibe with plenty of seating for you to enjoy a relaxing drink or a bite to eat. There's no chance of the little ones getting bored here, with TVs, games, activity packs and a free two-course meal for up to two children under 13.

While the Holiday Inn is loved by families, it's also a hit with those who like the simplicity of leaving their car at the hotel during their holiday. There's loads of spaces and the car park's secured, so the start of your holiday can go without a hitch.

Our customers rated Holiday Inn on average 9/10 (1385 reviews). Read Holiday Inn reviews.

Hearty, traditional British meals

Traders restaurant and the Hub bar have an informal setting, so although there's no need to don a fancy frock at dinner, this doesn't mean the food isn’t elegant and refined. Juicy, flavoursome steaks, deep-filled pies, classic fish and chips as well as a range of sandwiches and wraps are all on offer. Food is reasonably priced and made using locally sourced produce. The Holiday Inn is a family-friendly hotel that’s perfect for avoiding airport stress. You might even have some fun while you’re there!
