Opposite the North terminal
Be among the first to stay at the Premier Inn - London Gatwick Airport - North Terminal, this hotel at busy Gatwick airport is brand new.

All this and you'll still get everything you'd expect from a Premier Inn: comfy rooms, a great value restaurant and friendly staff, all for a fantastic price.
You've all seen the adverts, so you know what to expect from Premier Inn, and Gatwick's hotel is no exception.

The room has blackout curtains, air conditioning and the bed will be exceptionally comfortable.
You're in for a treat at the hotel's Thyme restaurant. It has the same kind of atmosphere, service and food that you'd find at your local family pub. The dinner menu is available from 17:00 to 22:30, then you can head into the bar and toast your holiday until 01:30.
