How to Choose the Best Gatwick Airport Hotel For You

At Enjoy Travel, we help customers select the best airport hotel to suit their needs or preferences. Choose from many Gatwick Airport hotels with our toggle tools, filters, hotel and parking packages, deals and information! Here’s what to consider or bear in mind when choosing your hotel:

Consider your Budget and Preferences

Knowing how much you can spend can help you decide on which airport hotel is right for you. Off-airport hotels tend to be cheaper, but are usually further away than hotels actually located inside the terminals or on the airport precinct. Whether you’re looking for luxury, convenience or merely a comfortable place to stay, you’re sure to find airport hotels within your budget at Gatwick Airport.

Compare the Location and Distance from the Airport

Imagine the luxury of simply stepping out of your hotel and being mere steps away from your gate. Based on your preferences, you can select hotels located within either the North or South Terminal of Gatwick Airport, and experience a more convenient and quick journey than if you had to get on a shuttle bus or walk for 10 minutes!

Check the Availability and Amenities of the Hotel

Consider what you would like out of your hotel– do you want tea or coffee in the morning, or a glass of prosecco when you arrive? Do you need business rooms to catch up on work or host conferences? These are things you need to think about before booking, and make sure the hotel you book has the right amenities to suit your needs!

Read the Reviews and Ratings of Other Guests

The reviews of other guests tend to be reliable and accurate, as they are first-hand accounts and real life experiences. This can help you decide if the hotel you are looking to book is right for you.

What to Expect from Gatwick Airport Hotels

There are approximately 7 On-Airport Hotels at Gatwick to choose from, each with varying amenities to suit your needs. Hotels like Bloc and Yotel provide small short-stay rooms or cabins, featuring only the most basic amenities; located within South Terminal, mere minutes from security or check in for added convenience.

Hotels such as Courtyard by Marriott, Hampton Inn, Hilton, Sofitel and Premier Inn, are located just a short (and sometimes covered) walk from the terminals. Here, you can find bigger rooms and more amenities, such as ergonomic desks and chairs, bathrooms and more space.

Amenities and Services

In-terminal hotels like Bloc and Yotel only tend to feature beds, a powerful and luxurious shower to help you feel refreshed, and sometimes TVs or workstations! You can book rooms or cabins with extra beds if required, like in the case of travelling with family members or in large groups.

Larger hotels at Gatwick Airport feature the in-room amenities you’d expect from a normal hotel, such as double or single beds, desks, living spaces (only in some hotel suites) TVs, runway views, coffee/tea making facilities and room service. General hotel amenities/services include airport shuttle to terminals, fitness centres, restaurant/bar and lounge, onsite mini-shop and business conference centres.

Rooms and Facilities

Rooms in transit or in-terminal hotels only feature beds. Their capacities are smaller than larger hotels located a short distance from the terminals, and they tend to be less spacious than regular hotel rooms.

Luxury hotels such as Sofitel and Hilton feature rooms and suites, and hold a larger capacity than in-terminal hotels. Expect all the space you can think of, plus runway or city views depending on proximity, as well as living spaces in some rooms. This is the same for other hotels, only some may not feature the same room styles or amount of space as the more luxury hotels do.

Policies and Cancellations

You can usually expect to be more flexible with your booking or cancellation and check in/check out times when it comes to airport hotels–after all, you need to account for flight cancellations or delays. Check each hotel website to see if any cancellation fees or non-refundable bookings are required.
